From what B Mitch was saying about Roberts' potential as a dominant slot guy, he could be our new Fred Davis (the Davis who was a key piece to our offense a few years ago).

Plus, as cowboykillerz said, hopefully he's our man in the return game.
All of which is exactly like he just needs to shut up and let it come to him.


I agree. I don't blame him for feeling that way and mentioning it to his wife/girlfriend, whatever. However, saying it in public is bonehead. If I'm any GM in the league right now I'm putting him in the Cutler too baby to face competition category. There are higher paid guys ahead of him and there are going to be an endless stream of young guys coming out of college every year wanting to take his job. Whining about it is for losers. I haven't heard him offer to give up his check for his freedom either.

Redskins WR Andre Roberts is working as the returner with both the kick and punt units.

Roberts signed on with the Redskins to be their No. 2 receiver, but he suffered a quick demotion when Washington brought in DeSean Jackson a month later. The silver lining is the reduced offensive role opens up Roberts to help on special teams. Roberts has not been particularly successful as a returner, though, averaging a measly 6.9 yards per punt return and 22.4 yards per kick return. Washington would do well to find a better option.

I say give th kid the chance and see how he does before you write him off.. we don't have a shortage of players who can get the job done, although I'd prefer to keep DJax out of harm's way rather than have him returning kicks...
Although if I remember correctly they bes t the pukes one game last year largely due to his late game punt return td that was pretty much the game changer- so idk do you keep that type of threat off the field just to avoid injury??

I hope our new ST coach has them blocking and setting up returns. Something lacking for a long time. I liked Danny Smith, but he had coverage teams not return teams :( I heard Roberts numbers were from his rookie season and I'm not sure that is enough to gage from.

ummm... ck, whom has written him off??? Most are simply saying that he needs to get the whine out of the public domain... just shut up and compete.

Sorry boss, I should've been more clear.. I was referring to the csnwashimgton report in Darths post stating that "... Washington would do well to look elsewhere." Basing that off a small sample size from his rookie year. I say give him a shot to prove what he can do. I agree100% that he should let his play do the talking and shut his mouth tho!
