I tend to think of preseason heroes more as people not likely to make the team, or at least not expected to. Someone like a Shaun Droughn

It's been brought up here a few times these past couple of months

In that case I will hedge my bets and nominate the following.

Matt Gutierrez, James Davis, and Issac Anderson.

Guys that could be but I don't want to (ie the getting cut part bums me out)

Terrance Austin, Markus White, and Aldrick Robinson.

I think to be a preseason hero you have to be in position to show up on a stat sheet. If a lineman gets noticed he usually stays.

But yes i'd guess Paul or Austin for that last spot. Paul is known as a special teams standout right? KR?

Moss, Gaffney, Armstrong, Hankerson, and Paul I'm guessing.
With the rule change on kickoffs, Banks position is gradually going to become one in less demand. A weapon being handicapped by rule changes.

Really, Banks? Can't claim to know him but he seems like one of those 'nicest guy in the world' types. Fun loving guy, always seems to be smiling, and most importantly turns around field position when someone doesn't block an opposing player in the back.

Banks will still be a weapon on punts. The rule won't affect punt returns at all.

Plus the other thing to remember is that while the total number of touchbacks is going to skyrocket, the value of a long return is going to say the same or possibly get more valuable. It's going to happen less across the league, not just to Brandon Banks.

not writing him off completely, he just doesnt have as much upside. he also could easily be stashed on the practice squad and we wouldnt have to worry about anyone picking him up. now i HAVE completely written off banks and stallworth.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Preseason Pre-Game Thread

I'm actually a bit intrigued by Matt Gutierrez (if he plays at all)...when Darth Hoody traded Cassel to the Chiefs, I believe Gutierrez was Brady's back up. But then again, he did get cut after that year, so who knows.
