With a 126-yard performance on the ground Sunday, Redskins running back Roy Helu served notice that he’s here to stay on offense. It was his third-consecutive 100-yard game, which has been well-publicized as a franchise first for a rookie, a draft-class high, and the first of any Redskins back since Portis went five-straight in 2008.
But after the game, Roy wouldn’t hear the praise. He attributed his success to his teammates, his line–even his backup Evan Royster. The only thing that he would take credit for was his preparation during the week and film study–everything else was deferred to others.
Here were a few of his answers:
On continued success: ”The offensive line played their butts off. All credit to them.”
On going three straight: “It’s pretty cool. All credit to the linemen, they did pretty great…Honestly, today I felt like it was a gift from the offensive line, and DY played his tail off.”
On the confidence Shanahan has in rookies: “I’m impressed with Coac

Washington Redskins QB Rex Grossman will be a free agent after the conclusion of the 2011 regular season, but could Grossman be back under center for the Redskins in 2012? It’s a very good possibility. Prior to the start of the regular season Grossman was locked in a quarterback dual with John Beck with the team naming Grossman the starter just days prior to the season...
Here is the week in review so far for Redskins tweets. The stat about only 3 winning seasons in Dan Snyder’s 13 seasons is pretty amazing.
RB Roy Helu asked if it was hard to get up for last 3 #Redskins games this season: “No, not if you’re a competitor.”

The Washington Redskins have placed nose tackle Chris Baker on injured reserve with a quad injury only a week after promoting him from the practice squad, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed. The team also signed tight end Richard Quinn o the 53-man roster.
Baker spent the entire season on the practice squad before he was promoted Dec. 6. The next day he pulled up...
The Redskins gained a season-high 463 yards in Sunday’s loss to New England, but quarterback Rex Grossman isn’t ready to call that the offense’s best performance of a difficult season.
“Any time you lose, you have a tendency to focus on what you could’ve done to win,” Grossman said Wednesday. “So it’s tough to talk about something we did positive in the game. But...
If you don’t care, then it really doesn’t matter now does it? Well, we learned that even a high octane offense gets frustrated and Bill O’Brien is more than a puppet offensive coordinator. Brady admitted he made a “dumb” mistake in trying to force a pass to Tiquan Underwood in the back of the end zone. The Patriots were ready to go up two scores either via touchdown or...
When the Washington Redskins' maligned offense lost two of its best players to drug suspensions last week, it became fair to wonder how they would move the ball during the final four games of the season. Tight end Fred Davis and left tackle Trent Williams are athletic blockers capable of ...
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was still upset Monday with the personal foul call London Fletcher received for a hit on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Sunday.
There was a serious focus on referees after the game, as several questionable flags drew the ire of the players. In the Patriots 34-27 win over the Redskins, the shouting surrounded DE Andre Carter’s roughing call, a flag on Vince Wilfork for unnecessary roughness, a call on London Fletcher for roughing, and an offensive pass-interference penalty on WR Santana Moss.
Tom Brady yelled at a coach because of an interception. The Washington Redskins hollered at the refs.
