I am sure you all have heard by now that Dolla Bill will be in pads for the opener Monday night.
CP said he has gone from 75% to 93.9% and he thinks he will be 100% by Monday night.
Joe Gibbs said that CP will be playing a back-up roll - Ladell Betts will still get the start.
I think Portis will sit the entire game, and his only chance of seeing any action is if Betts is ineffective (which he won't be).
I think having CP suited up will just give the Skins another mental edge going into the game.

The real reason why I write to you on a Saturday night (besides the fact that i'm a total loser) is because I found this amazing video on extremeskins.com that you all need to see before opening kickoff. The Video is a montage dedicated to the return of Joe Gibbs with Coldplay's "Fix You" in the background.
This video will both get you teary-eyed and totally pumped for the upcoming season. I have watched it three times already.
Watch the video, lock it up for a few hours and watch it again. Repeat this for the next 36 hours.
Also - for those of you who haven't seen this video, it will also get your juices flowing for the opener. Thanks, Yair. Thanks, Sean.
