ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Clinton Portis arrived at Dove Valley Thursday for a press conference, after first rushing to a nearby fast food restaurant. One of Portis' novelties as a Bronco is going to get fast food after many of practice sessions. After Portis returned from lunch, he made his way to the podium where the roles immediately reversed. The press began asking him about rushing, not to Burger King, but rushing on the field. Portis was faced with questions from people who are asking for a season performance comparable to or exceeding that of his first year with the Broncos.
"I just want to give it all I got," said Portis. "I always want be able to make the big one for the team. But, I would like to come out of most games with a smile knowing we won, instead of losing by two or three like we did during the second half of last season. If we can come out of games with a win, I think everyone will be happy."
In 2002, Portis led all NFL rookies in rushing yards finishing with a total of 1,508 yrds. As Offensive Rookie of the Year, he also scored 15 touchdowns and averaged 5.52 yards-per-carry. With Portis' phenomenal season last year, if Broncos fans had it their way, they would be ordering up another impressive season like Portis' first. But, knowing his ability as a running back, many expect to see Portis make the fan's order a deluxe.
Fast rush for records and food
