The last part i agree with,but half of what he use to be is a stretch.
Ok, maybe "half of what he used to be" is a stretch, but he's not the Clinton Portis of 5 years ago, that's fore sure. He's still a great back, but not as great as he once was. Sometimes I think people just hear a name and automatically assume they are still as great as they were in their prime.
For example, Ronde Barber. Most NFL fans would say he's a top CB in the NFL, and for 6-7 years, he was. But this past year, he was horrible, but still made the Pro Bowl b/c of his name, just like half the Pro Bowl selections anyways.
