Re: Bucs vs Skins Gameday Thread

how can royster and williams and thompson all be safe bets? are we keeping 6 RBs when only 2 are ever going to see the field?

my guess would be we keep 3 unless we're really weak somewhere else and can afford thompson as a returner only. more likely he's #3 and jamison is on the PS. we might keep williams or royster, but neither one looks as good vs #1s.

Re: Bucs vs Skins Gameday Thread

Here's a couple of roster questions:

Will the redskins keep 6 wide receivers? And if they do- who will it be: Briscoe or Nick Williams? How long do wait for Briscoe to live up to his prototype measurables before you give up on him? Nick Williams might be able to give you some solid production and a backup special teams returner.

Williams will not make it. The RBs will be Alfmo, Helu, Royster, and CT.

Royster will see the field some. He has improved and is better than some people here think.

CT is the punt returner. He will probably be used in some gadget plays.

I think Royster sticks. He's probably a better fit in this scheme than Helu, he just doesn't have his speed or quicks. But he's a good patient runner. I think the RBs will be Helu, Royster, and Thompson behind Morris.

Tough call between Royster and Williams. Luckily I think both are competent enough to hold the role.

Re: Bucs vs Skins Gameday Thread

Interesting tidbit about Chris Thompson. Shanny and crew actually had a late 1st/2nd round grade on him(talent wise).

@CarbonPrimo @EBJunkies That;s my guy.. Never any doubt. They were not cutting a guy they had a late 1st/early 2nd round grade on.

I think for the last RB spot, they may be looking at someone who plays special teams, which wouldnt bode well for Royster if thats what they are thinking. A lot of hard decisions on cut down day.

I think Thompson is that last RB spot. Assuming they keep 4 which I'm guessing they will.

Williams is more capable in that role actually.

That's one heck of a promotion for Thompson. He changes from running back to savior.

I like Williams a lot. Lewis too. I think maybe both are PSers. Can't see how we keep 6 WRs when most of our TEs can flex to WR. It's a good spot to save for an extra RB/OL

Thats why I said it doesnt bode well for Royster. But thats only if the coaching staff is looking at it like that. They may want the best RB and just choose to fill in special teams with what they have. If thats their thinking, then I think they keep Royster. If they are placing an emphasis on special teams, then Williams has the upper hand between the two imo.

Thompson has some crazy speed and quickness in the open field. Can't wait to see him on some screens.
