Joe Gibbs II Posted March 12, 2006 Share Posted March 12, 2006 Now before you all say anything bad, I love Portis and am glad we made the decision to get him. He has done awesome things for the franchise and single handedly carried us to the playoffs. But I was thinking with Jamal Lewis' current situation and how he is on the market... what if this was 2004 before we got Clinton. When Clinton got here he was undersized for his role in the offense and bulked up this year and became what we wanted from him, but if you look at some numbers you may think what may have happened. If Jamal was on the market back then, would we try to have gotten him? He is 5'11 (same height as clinton) but weighs 245lbs (more of a gibbs like runner). Thats over 20 more lbs than clinton now. In their combines they both ran roughly 4.3, which is extremely fast. The only difference between them is age and probably blocking which Clinton improved a lot upon here. Either would have been great for us, but this idea just got me thinking about what may have happened. EDIT: The question isnt about who to have now, its who should we have gotten in 04.
