I'm wait and see on banks. He was my favorite redskin for a while in the beginning of the year. Then he got hurt and played like junk the rest of the season. I think he isn't easily replaceable if he's playing at the top of his game, but if he played like he did down the stretch, I'd say so long. Different people respond differently to injuries, hopefully he will bounce back.

A couple of years ago, Dominic Dorsey and Anthony Alridge were the little speedsters on the team. But neither did much, if anything, come the regular season. Last year, it was Banks (who had a great season for sure).

Who's to say that Aldrick Robinson can't be as exciting as Banks was last year, or as successful?

He can, but why would you risk cutting Banks and having him do that against the redskins, when you already have that in Banks?

And actually I don't remember those other guys being on the same level as Banks.

I'm actually with skinster. If he doesn't regain his top form last year, then cut him. But if he does regain that form, then you absolutely cannot.

We'll probably see as soon as the Steelers game.

IMO you are allowed to be a specialty player for one year after that you have to learn more.

I don't think you can underestimate the impact of a great return man. When I saw Banks get back near the kicking team's line of scrimmage a few times, I thought to myself that's almost like a recovered fumble, interception, or a defensive stop on 4th down.
