Re: Redskins Sign RB Ryan Grant/Place Roy Helu Jr. on IR

I'm really disappointed about Helu. I was expecting a great year from him i like the Grant signing. I think he can contribute.

Lets just say rg3 gets hurt. Than does it make sense?

Not all that surprising, bigger surprise is that he wasn't placed on IR before the season started.

Some of you know I was saying back in July he was a strong candidate for IR. Never could quite get healthy enough.

I still hear Royster may miss some time though. Week or two perhaps
I never knew that his achilles was that big of an issue. If it's a Landry type achilles thing, I hope Helu just gets the surgery asap and gets himself right. He's got a lot of football in front of him.

Sure, Let's assume the following:

Grossman is cut today.

Who picks Grossman up?
Doubtful anyone does right? so he is probably available on the street.


next - We put an OL Tackle on the 53 man roster from our practice squad.
His practice time shifts to the same as the 53 man Roster, and we add another practice squad CB


Going into the next game, Cousins is 2nd backing up RGIII like the first two games. No difference in this Sunday.

now, the doomsday you mention. RGIII is hurt in the game. Cousins is still the only qb we have available to play so he goes in.

if he does good we pull the practice squad qb up and move on. if he does bad we call Grossman and say if you want the spot its yours, and he comes back and we have a 50/50 year.


Ultimately in no way does having Grossman as a Sunday inactive every week make this a better team, but it might make it slightly worse, because of the potential spot that is being used for a qb with no future here.

Yeah I talked about it with the other mods during that two week span you were mod-banned for...well you know what you did with that chicken and the duct tape.

But yeah it's very much a Landry type thing.

I understand grossmans phone isnt going to lite up trust me. I just think - esp with this oline - that it is important to keep three qbs that are familiar with our o fresh n with the team for this year. Im not going to bat an eye if he is released but im keeping him around sort of like that pair of sneakers that i never want to wear again but am not ready to throw away yet just in case.

Ok, thats fine but honestly, if Griffin and Cousins go down, Grossman coming in just is like pouring alcohol on a wound, might be the right thing, but it's gonna hurt like hell.

Hopefully, Grant runs well enough to not tip what the Redskins are doing on offense and continue to keep the opposing defenses off-balance.
I think it could also mean that we planning on running the ball more in the near future and would like to have another RB on the roster at full strength besides Morris.

Could be. But RGIII specifically mentioned Grant's pass blocking ability today

I guess until i would ever see cousins in a real game im not ready to say he is even better than grossman. So just in case rg3 goes down and the season isnt over i want the option of my old smelly sneaker. Believe though i hear you about grossman.

Re: Redskins Sign RB Ryan Grant/Place Roy Helu Jr. on IR

Hate to hear that Helu's on IR; he's too injury prone and I question if he'll be back on the team next year. As SS stated, depending on the severity of Royster's injury, and if Slaton remains unsigned, Slaton could sign w/ us down the road.

Re: Redskins Sign RB Ryan Grant/Place Roy Helu Jr. on IR

The skins have had so many different backs since CP.

Betts
Cartwright
Torain
Hightower
Helu
Morris

Re: Redskins Sign RB Ryan Grant/Place Roy Helu Jr. on IR

Royster has a sprained PCL, but he's going to try to play on Sunday. Personally I'd be a bit surprised

Is that mostly due to scheme?
