Found November 08, 2011 on Redskins Insider:
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said he was pleased with the play of rookie Roy Helu in Helu’s first professional start, but the coach declined to say whether the Nebraska product would start next week against Miami. Helu had a franchise record 14 catches – most of them on dump-off passes from John Beck -- for 105 yards and carried the ball 10 times for 41 yards in Washington’s 19-11 loss to San Francisco.

Week Nine Pretend Football Notes

Week 9 was an eye opener just like every week of the season. Nothing ever goes as you plan. I’m looking at you Darrius, Willis, Timmy, Beanie, Miles, Reggie and the whole Peanuts gang. But we move on and hope we make the correct choices from here on out! Or at least more correct than those other dudes and ladies in our leagues. Here’s a look at some of the news from Sunday.

Shanahan Praises Team Stick-To-It-iveness

AP Image After any tough loss–or tough streak–it’s hard for a coach to find the right things to say to inspire.  Egos get fragile under pressure, and the character and culture of a team can be lost in moments of frustration.

Beck returns to Miami in search of first victory

DAVIE, Fla. -- There's talk heading into Sunday's game at Sun Life Stadium about being winless. But it isn't the Miami Dolphins who have that big zero in front of them anymore. They took care of that with a 31--3 rout at Kansas City last Sunday. It's Washington Redskins quarterback John Beck, who is 0--7 in seven career starts. Beck went 0--4 for the Dolphins in...

Shanahan still staking reputation on Redskins' QBs

Mike Shanahan isn't backing down when he says he's stakes his reputation on Washington Redskins quarterbacks Rex Grossman and John Beck. Shanahan made that statement after the first training camp practice in July. So far, the two have yet to justify the coach's faith. Grossman was benched after committing 11 turnovers in five starts, and Beck is 0-3 since taking over...

John Beck Ate It Hard

If we're going to declare the John Beck era a failure, we can't just look at the fourth-worst passer rating in the league (ahead of Rex!), or the twice as many INTs and TDs, or the zero passes for 40+ yards. We've got to ask: does he have the look of a quarterback: standing tall under pressure, proud, graceful? More »

Redskins-Dolphins Preview

The Miami Dolphins are certainly feeling good coming off their first victory. Washington Redskins quarterback John Beck is still searching for his. Going up against his former team, Beck looks to help the Redskins avoid losing a fifth consecutive game for the first time in 10 years when they visit the Dolphins on Sunday. After opening with seven consecutive defeats, Miami took...
