Breakaway speed is so novel in this offense.
Helu is pretty amazing with how he can plant his foot and cut and not loose any speed. It's only a matter of time before breaks off some really big plays.

There was also far less blitzing in the second half than the first, after the Cardinals showed a credible threat of a run.
Yeah Tim Ryan was killing me with his whole "Arizona has made great adjustments". If you by adjustments you mean our entire secondary is backups and we can't actually run much more than base right now then yeah Arz made good adjustments. Otherwise what really happened was we had a bunch of special teamers playing in the secondary against maybe the best WR in the league and a half decent QB. We understandably had some trouble with that.

Great read by Rex. The play was meant to go to the flat for a first down but Rex recognized that Moss was singled and the CB peaked too hard. The safety had zero chance. Arizona has some major issues on defense.

Rak and Kerrigan had a great game. Fletcher was his usual self. Lot's of injuries in the secondary but we managed to hang on.

On offense, Rex had a good comeback game. Had a shaky start but finished well. That's tough to do. Fred Davis, Moss, TH, and Helu.

I've posted this before, but I went to the VaTech/Nebraska game a couple years ago. Watched their running back just tear it up. Didn't know who he was til that day but I was very impressed. He played against a pretty good VaTech D too. Obviously it was Helu Jr. I was very happy we drafted him then and he was great yesterday.

I've known about Helu since I watched that game as well. When I was watching him tear up Tech's d I couldn't help but think, "why can't we have a guy like that in a Skins uni." This was before Shanny's time of course, but when I heard we drafted him I was excited, and I've been excited since. He's the type of burner Portis never was while he was here.

You are correct. But Helu reminds me of the youthful Portis in Denver - quick feet, can accelerate rather than decelerate through cuts, and speed to burn.

How about our boy D.Young popping a nice little run. I would like to see Royster and Hank activated before the season's over.

Re: Scud's Studs (12th off the bench): Cards vs. Skins

Did anyone else watch Helu on the Big Ten Network this week?

They replayed his game vs. Mizzou/Blaine Gabbert. Helu ran for 308 yards...busted off several 70 yarders and it looked like he was running against kids.

Gomes had an interception and Niles Paul looked great as a WR...and they were kicking away from him as a returner.

All of our draft picks looked great that game, but Helu was unbelievable.

I have it DVR'd but watch out for it to be on again. Big Ten Network's Greatest Games.

Kerrigan - the guy was EVERYWHERE.

Fred Davis - is officially out of my doghouse. I am declaring myself a Fred Davis fan. Despite all the catches and yards, his best catch was on that quick out on 3rd down in the 4th quarter. I actually count on him to make big catches now. Amazing turnaround, keep it up.

London - a few times during the game I asked myself "Who was that kid chasing the QB? That kid's fast!", only to realize it was none other than the ageless wonder. Is it possible he's still getting better?? It's a true privilege having Fletch as a Redskin.

OL - not a perfect game but way better than last week, especially in pass pro. I was hard on TW and the OL last week so wanted to give props.

Others - Santana, Rak, Good Rex, HighHelu, Gaffney, Gano, coaches, and more...

GUTSY WIN BY THE NFC EAST LEADERS
