Paul does need to work on his hands a bit.

The Redskins played a great game. It was a thrilling hard fought victory. Congrats to Garcon, Cousins, Morris, Forbath, and Crawford.

Banks has fumbled (and recovered) his fair share of returns too, so Pauls doing the same doesnt concern me... yet. What i like about Paul is he's fast and runs straight - instead of running in circles and sometimes backwards, trying to make something happen. He also has size that can help him potentially break a tackle and get a a few yards after contact.

Im ecstatic that, after years of sticking with an inept returner, Danny Smith is finally going with more talented guys, who can help make plays for us. We won the game yesterday because Crawford returned a great punt in OT. Its a very small sample size, but i'm very excited about the possibilities with our return game.

I don't trust Niles Paul on kickoffs. Granted fumbles do happen but that fumble yesterday that he committed could have lost us the game. I'm not sure if Crawford's huge punt return marks the end of Brandon Banks, but Mike Shanahan and Danny Smith would be wise to keep Banks for depth purposes.

This. Banks is a preseason superstar. Nothing more.

Banks absence from the active roster is a good thing no doubt. Paul shouldn't be allowed to touch the football though, on offense or teams. With Banks out of the picture he's the worst offensive player we have.

Smoot, that may be true. But if Banks is so worthless, then why hasn't Mike Shanahan made a move on him, especially given yesterday's topflight performance on punt returns by Richard Crawford who received a game ball from the head coach? Banks is worth something if very little. If he wasn't Shanahan would have cut Banks like he did with John Beck.

No rush to cut him or shop him at this point though.

re: Goodbye Brandon Banks?

I think the Niles Paul experiment will come to an end at the end of this season. He can get open, but what's the point in that if he can't catch the durn ball?
