I knew i was going to take some heat for this...But like i said, he has his games....
I would love to see him signed to a long term deal...But I look at the contract Harrison received and it makes you wonder.

Linebackers don't line up alongside the defensive lineman. Go back and watch any game from last year, the playoffs especially, that's where he was unless we were in prevent.

We've always had a dynamic defense, it's called a 3-4 but really it's not because we blitz almost every down.

Here's the thing, watch Porter on every defensive play, he slacks off and does not pursue. If a play goes up the middle he stops and watches it go instead of trailing and bringing the guy down from behind like Polo does often.

I know Joey did this in the playoffs and he's a leader blah, blah... Watch every play instead of the one or two where he actually gives more than 3 seconds of effort.

I think for less than $5m we can get a good rookie to give us 100% every play.

I will agree!!! But without taking anything away from Joey!

Lets not talk about him leaving. Lets talk about him Stomping some grills this year....
We will have to let the cards fall where they will. We will see his character soon, Is he a team player or out for himself only? Love the Porter and hope he stays but I dont see it happening, hopefully I am wrong....

No complaints about Porter here, although I don't think we should resign him simply because of his age and the fact that we tend to spit out LB talent at the same rate that a Bengal get's arrested.

How you could "expect" more from him doesn't exactly make sense to me. The stats were already mentioned in this thread. Not only led the team in sacks but plays damn good against the pass. What else do you want or "expect" from the guy?

The Colts and Bronco playoff games last season showed me enough.

Does he have his off-games? Sure. Who doesn't?

i remember greg lloyd getting stuffed in the superbowl. then again he was rushing against a house. at joey porters size, sometimes a player like walter jones is simply gonna get the better of him. what do they say? "sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you"

Unless he agrees to take a smaller contract so we can resign Ben and Troy,he'll be gone.

But this year he's gonna be focused and looking for his second ring.He's gonna give some QB's DA BOOT this year.

Does anyone know if Joey Porter's knee getting any better? I thought he was gonna get surgery on it but i havent heard anything. Hopefully he'll be 100% to go in time for the season.

I know Joey is a little upset about not getting the surgery done a few months earlier but either way I believe he will be good to go for the season opener. I'm looking for him to come back and continue his torrid pace.

Earlier in the season I was starting to think what was up but then I read LeBeau changed his assignments around and the rest is history.

"he hasnt done that much lately" Um. Were you watching the end of the Colts game. That was Manning underneath Joey.
