I still like Helu as our 3rd down back. He's still under his rookie contract, he knows the system and as long as his sore achilles have had the proper rest, he will be the 3rd down back to come in and get some carries and has the best hands for catching passes. I mean, he did tie a Redskins record with 14 in a game last year.
You guys keep talking about our RBs needing to block, but with the pistol, the RB's rarely were asked to block with the FB and TE in tight. Maybe on the backside for a rollout, but I think Helu does good enough as a blocker. I'm no on the bring Tim Hightower back bandwagon. I like our young RBs.
