Helu doesnt seem to have the ideal patience and vision to be an every down back for this system. But he can be a fill in short term and be a quality 3rd down back. It all depends on how Shanny is viewing it though and I could be way off. Just what I have been thinking this preseason. I havent been viewing Thompson and Royster as competing for a roster spot.

If they believe they can get Jamison to the PS, I think 2 3rd down backs makes some sense.

It's gong to be interesting to see how he performs when the lights go up. I'm thinking Santana might get early reps.

Re: Bucs vs Skins Gameday Thread

So is the thinking behind keeping 4 TB is for Helu's or Thompson's health concerns? I dont see enough touches for 4 RBs. Alfmo, Helu, Thompson would be my preference...Royster is a non factor in that rotation, K Williams is a better back imo, but again not enough touches. Jamison is going to the practice squad and looks ready to be added to the roster if need be. I mean is Shanny keeping 4 because he read the SI article and he thinks this might increase his ranking?

Id rather cut Royster and K Williams and look at the waiver wire for ILB/Safety/Tackle depth. Sh*t, even if Shanny and Kyle said I really like Lance Lewis or Skye Dawson, I'd rather keep that potential player over a K William or an Oyster.

Re: Bucs vs Skins Gameday Thread

Rumors are we're keeping 4 RBs, 1 FB, 4 TEs, 5 WRs. Take it for what it's worth.

RBs:

Morris
Helu
Royster
Thompson

FB:

Young

TE:
Davis
Paulsen
Reed
Paul

WR:

Garcon
Moss
Morgan
Hankerson
Robinson

The question is would you get rid of Royster for Williams or Lewis, right now I would.

Re: Bucs vs Skins Gameday Thread

I would prefer to put Williams or Lewis on PS because three of listed TEs could play as WR for a game easily if we need them to. Thompson and Helu have durability issues so I feel it would be ideal for us to have a back up RB in case if one of them got hurt.

Pretty sure neither Williams nor Royster eligible for the Practice Squad.

Re: Bucs vs Skins Gameday Thread

There needs to be some clarification on Nick Williams (wr) and Keiland Williams(rb) in these discussions.

Re: Bucs vs Skins Gameday Thread

I wonder if we will be looking at the waiver wire and at what positions?

Be silly not to but, other than the 4th safety spot or 9th OL, we are trying to figure out how not to cut folks. Hard to see them getting a waiver wire guy for any other spots.

Deep team this year. Deep team.

Re: Bucs vs Skins Gameday Thread

This team's attitude is different than the past. There is a quiet confidence which you can feel from everyone, even the third teamers. Not bombastic swagger, but quiet confidence.

If I may be so bold, I haven't felt this quiet confidence from a Redskins team since the glory days of the '80's.

I meant Nick Williams and I never said anything about putting Royster on PS. I believe that we should put a WR, either Nick Williams or Lance Lewis on PS instead of put one of the two WRs on roster at the expense of other RB.

You are correct. Neither of them are eligible.

No doubt, depth all over.

Haven't seen a time like this here since the early 90s.
