Found November 28, 2011 on New York Post - Jets:
PLAYERS: Roy Helu
TEAMS: Washington Redskins
ASHBURN, Va. -- Roy Helu is becoming too productive to ignore. Give the Washington Redskins rookie a start, and he’s good for about 150 yards of total offense. At least that’s what happened the first two times he got the nod. He piled up 41 yards rushing and...

Video: Roy Helu goes vertical for first NFL touchdown run

The first time I talked to former Nebraska and current Washington Redskins running back Roy Helu, we were on the same plane back from the 2011 scouting combine. Meeting and talking to this very humble player got me watching his game tape, and I was impressed with his raw speed and ability to make plays in the passing game. We did a podcast together in March, and I took note when...

Mike Shanahan Shows More Love to Roy Helu and Redskins' 2011 Draft Class

At the start of the season, your Redskins Hog Heaven writers told you two things about the 2011 Redskins: 1. The team would be competitive with both Rex Grossman and John Beck at quarterback. The key words were "both" and "competitive." 2. You will like the 2011 team even if they finish with the same record as 2010. We predicted seven wins for the team. You...

Redskins show up late to stun Seahawks, 23-17

Roy Helu's hurdle gave Washington the kind of spark a team riding a six-game slide needs when it's down 10 points in the fourth quarter. Then it was up to Rex Grossman and the Redskins' defense to put an end to the team's longest losing streak in more than a decade. Helu's leaping 28-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter pulled the Redskins within three...

Armstrong, Helu Stop the Bleeding for Redskins

It had been quite a while since Anthony Armstrong last did the Dougie. So it was a sight for sore eyes on Sunday as the receiver danced away the bad memories of the Redskins’ six-game losing streak after catching a 50-yard touchdown pass to provide the difference in a 23-17 win over the Seahawks. It’s no secret that Armstrong has been in Mike Shanahan’s doghouse this season...

DeVito Doubtful Against Redskins

With the Jets taking on rookie phenom Roy Helu and the Washington Redskins, the team is going to need all the help they can get to stop the running game.  The bad news though is that the team looks to be without Mike DeVito, yet again, after an injury setback Sunday that has kept him from playing much of the past month. Rex Ryan said that Jets DT Mike DeVito will likely not play...

NFL offenses must take risks to score points: throwing the deep ball

Sunday’s win was a milestone for the 2011 Redskins. Not only did it snap a losing streak, it also marked the first complete team win of the season. Nearly all facets of the team contributed positively—offense, defense, running game and passing game. Only the kick protection and offensive line stood out as weak spots. Although Rex Grossman was sacked only once, he was victimized...

Outsider’s View: Washington Redskins Week 13

I know some of you are fond of Football Outsiders, (as am I) so once the season gets underway and trends start developing, looking at an opponent’s rankings on Football Outsiders helps to give fans some perspective. (As a heads up, negative percentages are good on defense, bad on offense & specials) Pass Offense: -13.2% (27th) Rush Offense: -9.2% (30th) O-Line Ranking: Run...
