This is about the never ending search for the best beer in the world. And that beer is apparently everywhere. Want me to try the beer you like or make? Great, tell me how to get it.

December 15-- Corners still out, no one worried

LB Lavar Arrington was held out of Thursday's practice still dealing with a sore quad.. He declined comment about his availability for this Sunday's game with Dallas..

The Skins top 3 CB's were all held out of practice for a second straight day, Shawn Springs (back/groin) hinted he will be able to go, Carlos Rogers (biceps) joined Springs inisde for the snowy practice.. CB Walt Harris (calf) was on the field but did not participate in team drills..

S Matt Bowen (knee) and T Chris Samuels (ankle/knee) both returned to practice after missing Wednesday.,. Eevryone on the injury report remained probable for the Dallas game.. It's possible a change will come tomorrow after the final main practice of Dallas week..

Gregg Williams said he would not discuss the gameplan for the Dallas game and said he is not concerned about the health at CB saying 11 guys will take the field on Sunday.. Ryan Clark said that he belivees there has been some miscommunication about the availability of the CB's and that the team may be close to full strength.. he may have just be putting a happy face on the situation..

RB Clinton Portis did not dress up saying the weather forced him to reschedule the costume show but said he had something planned that would have been the best one yet..
Portis admitted that last year he tried very hard to prove that he was not a system guy in denver and he was pressing to make things happen to prove he wasn't a bust.. This year he said he came back determined to be more of a team leader, not worry about his stats and do everything he can to be the best all around RB for the Skins he could be.. Portis said he didn't listen very well to running back's coach Earnest byner saying he came here "thinking I knew everything," and not listening to a then first year assistant coach.. he said this year he came back and the relationship with Byner is great saying he is learning from someone who understands how to be productive within the context of the Gibbs system..
As for this stretch where he is having the most productive stretch as a Skin, he said "it's just happening for me." The O-line is doing it's job, the WR's are blocking well downfield and that the team is determined to make it happen whether it be via the run or the pass..

Ooh yeah, lots of rivalry and must win talk today as well..

The practice was moved from the afternoon to the late morning to try to avoid the bulk of the bad weather but the team did practice outside despite the snow and rain and put together a full session on the field..
