Roy Helu didn't get much work against the Saints. Will his role increase this week versus the Rams?
Aldrick Robinson, WR: No one is quite sure how healthy starting wide receiver Pierre Garcon is going into St. Louis, which likely means there is a good chance you see a lot of Aldrick Robinson again. Robinson was an afterthought to a lot of Skins fans and farther down the rungs then Leonard Hankerson and Dezmon Briscoe, but all that changed with a four catch, 52 yard performance in New Orleans that included a touchdown. Can this young receiver stay consistent and become a valuable weapon for Robert Griffin III?
Roy Helu Jr., RB: If you remember last year against the Rams was the game where Shanny unleashed Ryan Torain in the second half, which was a game changer for the Skins. Shanny relied heavily on Alfred Morris in the opener, but may he look for a little change of pace this week with Roy Helu, who just got two carries against New Orleans. If the Redskins get ahead then you may see a lot of second year back.
Justin Snow, LS: No I don't consider long-snappers to be starters. Nick Sundberg has been immortalized in Redskins history now but he'll be gone for a month or two because of a broken arm. The Skins turned to Snow, a twelve year veteran who has spent his whole career with the Colts. There is a lot of talk about developing a rhythm between Snow, Sav Rocca, and Billy Cundiff. It will be interesting to see if we even notice any change with Snow in the lineup.
Brandon Banks, KR/PR: Surprised? I know right. Let me be honest, Banks scares the crap out of me! If you looked at Banks stat-line from last week you wouldn't be that displeased, a catch, a 25 yard average on kick returns, 9 yard average on punt returns. But what doesn't show up is Stabby's amazing ability to reach his two muff/fumble quota for every game. The ball hits the ground way to much with Banks and sooner or later it's going to bite us in the butt. When I was in high school, we put a guy back there who would simply wave his hand and catch a punt every time. If the Skins get up then that's all I want see.
Cedric Griffin, CB: Either Griffin is a slow starter or the most sandbaggeness SOB in the NFL. After a pretty terrible preseason the NFL veteran showed up and had a pretty solid game in New Orleans. Can he keep it up this week in St. Louis?
