Re: 2011 Redskins Offensive Rookie of the Year

Hankerson's drops are most likely a function of the complexity of the game being a bit fast for him. The fact that he's looked good in picking up the nuances in the game means he's already close. I have adjusted my expectations for him this year accordingly: he's just not there quite yet. But at the time of his release, I don't think Devin Thomas was even as close to "getting it" as Hankerson already is.

He has to fight through the drops and play more smooth or risk becoming Rod Gardner. Gardner was never a particularly poor player, he just failed to live up to his draft status. Hankerson's bar is set lower, and I think he'll be okay.

Helu will break at least 4 long TD runs this season.

I think you might be right. He adds super quick feet to his speed.

Hopefully we draft Terrelle Pryor & he becomes a Red Zone option at wildcat/QB/WR

It sure is nice to have some explosiveness in the backfield again isn't it?

Re: 2011 Redskins Offensive Rookie of the Year

I laughed out loud when somebody posted what a great problem it is to wonder if Torrain will make the 53
......yes...it is!

Maaan...if Helu could have donated Hightower his 2nd gear for TH's 58 yard run that would have been 6 points.

Helu has the potential to be our difference maker, I'm really curious to see how they use him this year

He's fast becoming one of my favorites. Not just on the field. I saw this interview after the game and something about it really impressed me. It was like a perfect combination of quiet confidence, humility, and will to get better (and I think a bit of nerves)

If he learns how to pass protect he is potentially the best we've had since Portis' early years for us.
