Kind of hard to choose from these guys for ROTY if only one or two of of them ever sees the field.

Re: 2011 Redskins Offensive Rookie of the Year

DONT BET ON ROOKIE WRS!!!!111!!oneoneone

besides boldin and colston, WRs just dont tend to be any good the first time out. I think 90% of rookie wrs don't really have an impact (600+ yards even).

If he does, great, but there are 4 WRs i'd put in front of him right now that have had good production, whereas rbs have a good record of starting strong (and wearing out around week 12) and being factors (800-1000+ yards) as rookies. Plus helu is behind a guy in a foot cast, so...

I'd say hankerson because Helu has much competition to get through. I'd take our backup WR over our 3rd string RB anyday in who will produce more. Especially when it seems that our backfield will be very crowded.

Hankerson needs to clean up those drops or he's not going to see much PT.

Love Hankerson and I think he'll work hard and get over the dropsies but you've got to think Helu will be given more opportunities. Royster could surprise some people but I'll go with Helu.

Exactly. A rookie receiver getting 500 yards is like a veteran getting a 1,000 yards when you factor in difficulty.

Re: 2011 Redskins Offensive Rookie of the Year

I voted Helu. He reminds me of a young Portis and I also feel he'll end up getting plenty of chances to play. Honestly, I wouldn't at all be surprised if he was the starter by week 8 or 9, especially if he can learn to pick up blitzes. I also think Hankerson has a good chance at being a really good one, but our qb situation just doesn't look good enough. Maybe we get lucky and he's our Marvin Harrison and next year we get our Peyton Manning.

Re: 2011 Redskins Offensive Rookie of the Year

Looks like everyone that said Hank Hill might be eating their words if he doesn't pick it up from here on out. Had a pretty poor game tonight.

Re: 2011 Redskins Offensive Rookie of the Year

Voted Hank, but if his drops continue he won't see the field. Right now it's a toss up between Helu and Royster, and which ever one backs up Hightower, will have the most impact.

Re: 2011 Redskins Offensive Rookie of the Year

I'm curious to see how many people start voting for Royster after tonight's game. Apparently the reason Royster played most of the game once Hightower left was because Shanny prefers to evaluate his backs over the course of a game. So Helu will probably get a game where he plays the majority, and so on. I didn't even realize it but he did it last year with the over-the-hill crew too.

Don't think so. His hands being a prob has been his MO for awhile. Don't get me wrong, I want him to succeed as much as the next guy, I'm just not betting the farm if ya catch my drift?

It may be one game but the one thing we've been hearing about him from practice and now in game situations is that he still drops the ball way more often than he should. I haven't seen anyone drop the ball like that since 50/50 was here.

Re: 2011 Redskins Offensive Rookie of the Year

Hank had two drops (I believe). One was catchable, but thrown slightly out of his reach, and a second drop that was pretty bad. He's not out of shape like Thomas and Kelly were, and he is a 3rd rounder. While drops have been an issue with him, it is something that I hope the coaching staff can rectify. I don't think people should throw the towel on him after just one preseason game affected by the lockout.
