Should Helu be the starter at RB?

Why isn’t Roy Helu the starting running back? Ryan Torain, the Redskins’ starting running back on Sunday against Dallas, is the team’s third-leading rusher since the Bye Week. The team’s top runner during that span is Helu, yet, coach Mike Shanahan appears hesitant to hand (although, he has earned it) the rookie the starting job, […]

Can stumbling Redskins offense rebound?

Special Contribution by NFL Gridiron Gab Featured Author Adrian Mojia Two fumbles and an interception was really the key to this game, giving the Niners good field position and points off the turnovers. Tim Hightower was by far the Skins best rushing threat and without him, the Skins have failed to put together any semblance […]

Redskins drop fourth straight game, lose 19-11 to San Francisco

The Washington Redskins shutout streak is finally over, but unfortunately, their losing streak now stands at four games. The San Francisco 49ers used the same formula on Sunday that’s got them to their best start in over a decade – running the football, playing great defense, and minimizing all mistakes – resulting in a 19-11 […]

Redskins OC Shanahan won’t name starting RB

With Tim Hightower out for the season, Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan wouldn’t commit to a starting running back (between Torain or Helu) according to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan in DC. Expect a heavy dose of Torain, mixed in with a […]

The Redskins vs. The Panthers preview: numbers by the dozen

The Redskins and the Panthers square off this Sunday, in Carolina, at 1:00pm. Both teams are coming off tough divisional losses, yet even though the Redskins are 3-3 and the Panthers are 1-5, Carolina is actually favored to win this game (two point favorites, as of this post). Let’s take a look at both of […]

Good Rex, Bad Rex, Goodbye Rex, and Good Riddance, Rex

Rex Grossman was not the answer at Quarterback for the Washington Redskins. He never was, and now he certainly never will be, either. Let’s be honest: we knew he wasn’t the answer at quarterback last December, when he was promoted over Donovan McNabb. We knew he wasn’t the answer when Mike Shanahan turned the preseason […]

Figuring out the Running Back rotation

It took an highly productive and highly impressive outing for running back Ryan Torain to remind us of what he’s done for us in the past, and what he’s capable of doing, when healthy. In his first action of 2011, Torain ran for 135 yards (a season high for any Redskins running back) and a […]
