    Simple mile hi salute and flip of the ball to the ref and he was reloading for the next run.

    If you had an option both at there prime who would it be TD or CP?
    Read the rest of the thread. Don't get me wrong. I'm staying unbiased. I like the humble guys but the flashy guys are fun to watch as well. I'm just simply stating that people like both so there isn't any point in bashing the showboaters. They make the game fun for people who like to be entertained in that manner. Remember, not everyone likes to see the same thing as you so you can't fault them.

    TD any day of the week. I would take TD on his worst day over Portis on his best.

The league has really taken it too far with the endzone celebrations, etc. Why do you think the NFL has been nicknamed the No Fun League?

    Sure, all the humble players are great to watch, but if everyone in the league was like that, there would be a lot less fans.

    I agree that it doesn't make Portis a bad person. He already was a bad apple, as he proved with his contract demands. Denver as an organization has a lot of class, and really, Portis didn't fit here. I wish him well in Washington, but am glad he is gone.
    I can sort of agree with you in that players should show more class since they are supposed to be role models for kids. But they are people too and they're allowed to show emotion, passion, etc. As long as they don't spit on other players like Romo did, it's just good natured fun.

    Now the contract subject, I completely agree with you on. He should have finished out the contract and if he continued to perform well, then he would have had every right to ask for more money. I'm still burned about that.

    I hated dealing portis away. I thought of it

    " if u take the #1 player on Offense out, how are you going to put points up?"

    But now i like it.

    Bailey has been working well and we are living up to our reputation for running backs so I would say we aren't hurting from the deal.
    Imho we got the better end of the deal hands down.

    do you guys remember all the whinning,,

    I went back and looked at some of the posts made back then. Pretty funny stuff.

    I was always in support of the trade but I did say that other guys were going to have to step up. Ashley Lelie in particular.

    That was just funny. Sharpe was having fun with some of the fans at the game in a good natured way. The whole championship belt thing was too disrespectful to the chiefs. I hate the chefs as much as the next guy, but you do stuff like that in the locker room, away from the cameras.
    I didnt really go for the belt thing. But if it was about disrespecting the chefs then I'm all for it.

    I was beside myself with joy when I heard about this trade. I had soured on Portis far before the trade went through because of contract issues, and I didn't like his attitude at all. He was still a Bronco, so I still said he was the best back in the league and gave him my support, but wished that it was someone else. I had also said for years that we needed a corner (or safety) and every year the draft came and went and no top flight corners were drafted. I accepted the fact that the Broncos would be a badass running team with no defense for the pass.

    I admit that when they said on Sportscenter "Clinton Portis....to be...traded?" and then cut to commercial I was scared. But when they came back and told me it was for Champ Bailey, I was ecstatic.

    Champ has yet to let me down. I hope he's playing here for many many years. And kudos to Shanny for having the balls and confidence to pull the trigger on this one.

    Also I like the fact that both Q and RD seem to be really humble guys, now how long that will stay that way remains to be seen. Sure that Mikey wiil take care of them if they turn in 1500 yards seasons.
    As soon as they are in the last year of their contract. With Droughns success, I doubt if anyone will ever trade for our running backs. They will feel it's just the system. Then again it really depends on Portis. If he has succes than maybe we can get another big time trade when we need it.
