Hail! Revisits The Helu Hurdle

If the Redskins were looking for a spark in the running game, then just call Roy Helu “flint and steel.” The rookie back had a career-high 30 touches for 162 yards and touchdown.  None of his touches were more important than his third-and-three play where he he caught the pitch, hurdled, bulldozed and sprinted 28 yards to paydirt, starting the improbable fourth-quarter comeback...

Roy Helu draws on faith, lessons from father to deal with pressure

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan brought rookie running back Roy Helu along slowly before turning him loose in Week 12 because the coach said he didn’t want to heap too much pressure on the Nebraska product’s shoulders.

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
