Free agent NFL RB Clinton Portis will be here at 12:30 p.m. ET to take your questions!
Clinton is here!
Clinton, how would you have liked to have played in Denver with a QB like Tim Tebow?
At this point in my career, I wouldn't. For Tebow and what's going on in that organization, I think it would have been new. But I've been playing with unproven QBs for most of my career. I'm not really for that any more.
What did you think when you were able to enter the league and successful right from the start?
I just thought I was well prepared coming out of Miami and the talent that we had and the team that we had. Coming into the NFL, there wasn't a roster in the NFL that wasn't as loaded as in college. I was well prepared.
WHAT UP PORTIS! TRUE OR FALSE.....If Cutler and Forte never got hurt, the Chicago Bears would be 11-3 instead of 7-7....
I think so. I think Forte was playing great at the moment that he went down. Cutler had really responded to last year's letdown to carry that organization. All of a sudden, you take them out of the fold....before everyone wanted to get rid of Cutler. Now you don't have him, everyone's missing him.
Do you think we'll see Miami return to what it once was?
I do. I think within the next two years maybe. In Golden's third year as a coach when he has his players. You have to clean out a program to rebuild a program. He has some good recruits coming in this year. You're going to have some players familiar with the system. I give them two years before they're back to a BCS game.
Would you like to get back on a team so you can get those last 77 yards to get to 10,000 for your career?
I would love it, but in trying to get those 77 yards, you're risking a lot. You're risking the injury, the setback. If I could just go back on the field for 1-2 weeks, I promise you I could get them. But having to go into a whole offseason is hard to do when I know I could get the 77 yards in a week or two.
How's your health?
Clinton, Who do you think is going to win the BCS National Championship game?
LSU. I've been paying attention and I think LSU. I think it will be one of the best LSU games we've seen in a long time. LSU wins. It's in New Orleans.
which team had more talent 01 canes or any of nfl teams you were on.
Definitely the '01 'Canes.
What was your favorite city to play in (either home or on the road)
Kansas City. I don't know what energy they have or how the stadium was built, but when you go into KC, that's Friday night high school football. You're going to get the toughest environment, the intimidation, the weather will be freezing. Perfect atmosphere to play in.
What do you think of RG3?
I think he was outstanding. I think he deserved the Heisman. I wish they didn't have the slip up and you could see him on the national stage. And everyone who questioned why he won the Heisman could see his game.
Clinton. What do you say to me saying that if you put together Miami Hurricanes that were still active in the NFL you would probably be one of the better teams in the NFL, all you guys would need is a QB.you, mcgahee, gore, johnson, moss, shockey, winslow jr. campbell, lewis, beason, hester, olsen, reed. etc...
I think it would be awesome! I think it would be awesome. I think we'd go out and kick some butt.
NFL players already look huge on TV, but how big are they when you're on the field with them?
I never really paid attention to the size. It's the heart that matters. I feel like I had one of the biggest hearts.
Did you have a football idol growing up?
Hilliard, New Orleans Saints.
You played for Gibbs and Shanahan -- who did you enjoy playing for more?
Coach Gibbs got the best out of everybody. He made you come out and you just felt like you were going to accomplish the unaccomplishable. He was always giving the extra mile, the extra fight. You just knew it was going to come down to toughness. We knew we would be tougher than every team. There were probably three blowouts in the time he was there. We knew we were going to be in every game. Other than that, every game was basically the last posession.
Hey Clinton, great career. What are your thought s about your former team the Broncos and their resurgence behind you know who at the helm? Thanks!
I think it's been a good resurgence. As a team, overall, they're playing team ball, which is great. Tim's getting all of the credit, but they're playing great team ball.
Do you think that Larry Coker can help UTSA estabalish a solid foundation?
I've never even heard of UTSA, so it will be interesting to see.
Hey Clinton. What's wrong with the Redskins? How did the Giants take them lightly to lose last Sunday? Thanks!
I think the Redskins are playing with the thought of let's go out on a positive note. They're not playing for the playoffs. But they still find a way to put together a team that wants to be on the field. That was probably the best game they had late in the season. It will be tough against Philly too.
