Why Brandon Banks needs to be used on the Offense
 
Is it just me or does anyone else thinks Banks needs to be used on offense? With Moss out for 5-7 weeks and Cooley on IR we need help. Brandon Banks is our fastest player and needs to get the ball in his hands alot more than just returning kicks. With the new kickoff rules he is a nonfactor so far this year. So why not get him some touches on offense. Banks did play WR at Kansas St. so he can catch the football. Banks has the speed to get on top of the defense and we could take some shots down the field. Who knows maybe he could get some PI calls our way. To me we need a guy that's a home run threat on the offense who can take a 10 yard pass 90 yards to the house. I hope Shannny gives Banks a few snaps very soon. The NFL is a passing league now so Banks has a advantage now with the new rules restricting the defenders from touching WR's anymore. Maybe Banks could be our vs of D-Jax.

if the coaches dont want him on the field, there's probably a reason. last time we tried him at WR his returned suffered and he didn't do anything special.

He needs to be cut. He's taking up a valuable roster spot. Let some other real WR/CB/RB run back kicks.

well, we just sent 42 people to IR and the trade deadline has past, so I'm not sure exactly who you're going to find at this point that'll really help the team and fill up all those slots.

Banks will eventually take a KR back for a TD I'm telling u maybe Sunday but as for WR? No way he plays over the other guys IMO

I think he does need to be used more, but in what capacity is the question. I think he's perfect for the screens, slants, and to be used as a RB to get to the edge or when running wide.

I think the issue with him not seeing the field as a WR is he's small and probably not getting off the jam well enough. I guess they could use him in motion and force defenses to try and keep up with him.

Banks needs to eat a few more hoagies before he can be effective in the NFL.

He's way too small to handle a lot more snaps.

Dude's knee still might not be 100%, and he has a lot to learn about the WR position as well.

He is a talent and good coaches know how to use the talent around them. "Not the talent they wish they had". We will be blaming the roster for ever.

I like BB, but everytime that guy gets hit I think he might not get back up. The guy is a willow the wisp type guy. I can see him getting jacked by a CB or S and game over for him, or he coughs up the ball. You have Austin and Paul as Wrs, and they show promise. Then you have AA which is your deep ball threat and JG who is the new #1. Hankerson needs to get in some reps to cure his dropsies, also. I can see BB being thrown in the mix as a WR from time to time, but I think eventually he would get destroyed.

Let's give him a chance, we might be surprised. Besides if he can handle himself on punt and kick offs he can handle himself. Can't hit what you can;t catch or can't see he is so small a bubble screen would fun to watch.

A KR or PR you have a few seconds til the defenders come, you have a cushion. In normal play you don't have everyone in front of you. I am not knocking his athletic ability here. Like someone said, he needs to eat a few perogies and gain weight/muscle.

Unforunately I feel Banks might go the way of Rock Cartwright; ST specialist only.

I always wanted to see Rock more in the RB position but his carries during his tenure with the Skins were rather limited.

Re: Why Brandon Banks needs to be used on the Offense
 
A guy that small.won't get PI.. occasional holding.if lucky.. gonna beat someone or get picked... best bet is screen.. but then that formation gives it away cuz who is he gonna block? Unless they fake screen and go opposite side
