Nope. Never. Plus we've discovered he's a Cromptonist. Everyone else should get a shot but not Crompton. I see how it is

Wouldn't that make me an anti-Cromptonist? If being for Crompton is revolutionary, then is an anti-Cromptonist a counter-revolutionist?

I'm not sure that I am a "Cromptonist," whatever that is. I'm simply taking your own advice to its logical end. Isn't your point to test inexperienced folks by fire?

Should we not be finding our QB of the future through live action? We know that QB is not Wrecks and is not Beck. That leaves...

I've never claimed that Crompton was a savior or anything. But if we are to test drive our youngsters, Rockytop should get some legit snaps.

Re: Young Redskins' Players

We know you are a Cromptonista Lotus. Stop denying it.

Something About Crompton
They say Wrecks & Beck steal the hubcaps
Of the respected gentlemen
They say it would be wine an roses
If Crompton were the QB again!


Cromptonista's arise!!

Re: Young Redskins' Players

curmudgeon is a Hightower lover. But even he cannot resist bowing before the great Helu.

You are absolutely correct. I believe that Tim Hightower - - uninjured and fully recovered from his current injury - - has the ability to be a very good RB in the NFL. At the same time, Roy Helu has shown - - once he got the chance to show - - that he too has the ability to be a very good RB in the NFL.

The emergence of Helu may mean that the Skins opt not to spend enough money on Hightower in the free agency period to keep both of them on the squad for 2012. I would prefer that both of them were here but the more Helu achieves in 2011, the less likely that becomes. Such are the economics of NFL salary caps...

I say we've got a pretty decent shot to keep THT. He's had a relatively quiet career and I doubt other teams are going to go into a bidding war for him. He'd be great insurance should Helu get IR'd.

Re: Young Redskins' Players

Back in Post #8 of this thread, I suggested that I might like to see what Chris Baker might contribute to the team's defense.

The transactions listing in the Washington Post agate type said that Chris Baker was put on IR, so you can remove him from my list of guys I might like to see on the field for a few plays in the next 3 games...

Re: Young Redskins' Players

The three Nebraska Cornhuskers really contributed this year. Gomes and Helu are now starters. Niles Paul has been excellent on kick coverage. Although he's seen time on offense, he has only done so as a decoy. I'd like to see him in the passing game more often.

Leonard Hankerson will be a beast. That first 100 yard game against Miami is the first of many. Ryan Kerrigan will be a great one. He's played every down on defense in 13 straight games. His pass rushing ability is one of the reasons why the defense is improved this year.

In comparison to how many touches he got in Washington per season to how many touches Portis got in Denver per season, yes I would definitely say it's well under 300 carries. Portis wasn't necessarily a workhorse running back in Denver under Mike Shanahan like he was in Washington under Gibbs and Zorn.

Re: Young Redskins' Players

Im kinda reserving the annointment of Helu as our franchise back for the next 5 years until he does it for a couple years. Seems we annointed that spot to ATV last year only to have him completely become forgotten.

I do think, even with that stretch of where our O line couldnt zone block worth fly shit, that MS's scheme and rep of making any no name running backs look good is holding up. ATV last year came out of nowhere, helu this year.

I like helu, he does seem to have a burst of acceleration but if i was the coach id go 60/40 hightower/helu next year.
