It's always best to just wait and observe when it comes to RB's and Mike. Odds are, he'll suprise us. Scouting reports would have had you believe that Alfred was a "camp body". Within this scheme, anything is possible.

His relationship with RGIII may give him that extra incentive to push harder. That relationship, may provide him more time to build on his current on-field chemistry with Robert. That's an advantage.

Forgive my laziness, but was Ike a receiving threat as well? If so, he might end up being a healthy version of Helu. Hope it works out.

Good post man!
like that you included the link- of course the "highlight real" at the end wasn't that great. I'm on ky phone but it appeared to be all his touches in one game, from two angles.

We will have to see how his skillset fits into this scheme, and how much he elevates his play... May be a surprise, like most rbs mike brings in, coupled with the RGIII effect who knows.

A great athlete but a bit raw. He is a project and I will NEVER underestimate a RB picked up by Shanahan.

He is NOT an elusive RB. He is a contact bruiser who attempts to play more like a FB. I do not think that Helu has anything to fear. These are TWO VERY DIFFERENT players.

Don't buy it. The guy couldn't crack first string in college. He's a courtesy pickup.

He is NOT an elusive RB. He is a contact bruiser who attempts to play more like a FB. I do not think that Helu has anything to fear. These are TWO VERY DIFFERENT players.

Helu has a lot to fear, he hasn't been healthy since the last offseason... Hell, he still isn't healthy. Helu is on notice, regardless if he's replaced by this kid or another.

That's another story. Which means, we might still take another pro-bowler in the seventh round!!! 8)

I am not discounting this guy but he is still very raw and he is not an elusive RB. He is very physical and plays more like a fast FB. He might benefit in the the one-cut system put in by Shanahan and, most importantly, take a bit of the punishment away from Alfred.

I simply do not over- or under-estimate anybody from the get go. I am just trying to provide a perspective. I am not a homer anyway. :lol:

I'm curious about this kid because of his relationship with Robert. I wonder how/if it will benefit his development.

I will tell you how it goes:

RGIII: Hey coach, we need to take some punishment away from Alfred if we want him to last.

Shanahan: Yes, Alfred took too many hits last season and he did not have much help in a rotation with all those injuries in the backfield and all.

RGIII: We might need some help here if Roy is not ready to go.

Shanahan: We will have a look at the Draft for a good physical RB who can block, catch and adapt to the one-cut system.

RGIII: I have a suggestion, coach. There is this RB who might help. He works hard, he is very physical and you might want to have a look at.

Shanahan: If you like him and work well with him, we will bring him to mini camp and give him a chance to earn a spot in training camp. Deal?

RGIII: Thanks coach!

------------

Week earlier:

Williams (over the phone): Hi bro, how are you doing. How's the knee?

RGIII: Getting better. After all I am "super human" (giggle)

Williams: Bro, can you do something for me? I promise to work my guts out for you man. All I need is a chance. That's all I'm talking about.

RGIII: Sure bro, let me talk to coach. I know you will do well and prove all Mock Draft "gurus" wrong. Let me see what I can do for you.

:wink:

I think that all of these players understand that they have a lot at stake and and have to prove themselves ALL the time

Helu has NOTHING to fear - all he has to do is show he's 'recovered' and ready to be a part of this offense - from what we've heard recently he'll be ready to go in OTAs

Helu will ONLY miss out on a roster spot if he does not show Mike & Kyle that he can play at the level THEY expect - NOT because of what some other player is able to do

actually - I kind of hope both of them make the squad :lol:
The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

I haven't heard any news about Royster this offseason. Is he back at full health? Although he played in most of the games last year, I seem to remember him as playing through a lingering injury all season.
