Brandon Banks does it again. Banks, who was on the bubble for most of traning camp and the beginning of the preseason, has solidified his spot yet again. While many Redskins fans may be struggling internally with the misinformation coming from Mike Shanahan and the exciting return from last week, fear not. Banks has likely locked up the sixth receiver spot, but with six spots at receiver (possibly seven), what do we make of Alfred Morris?
Morris had two carries of consequence against the Bears stout front seven. Morris is vying for a spot on the roster at one of the Redskins’ deepest positions in running back. Some say Morris is a lock “because he fits the system”, but then one would assume that either Hightower, Helu Jr., or Royster wouldn’t make it. It’s fair to say that if Morris makes the team, it would be as the fourth back.
Kirk Cousins was never on the bubble for being cut, but he may be inside the bubble for the second string at quarterback. Cousins dazzled and threw three touchdowns in a failed comeback attempt against Chicago. Cousins looked solid, solid enough to spark a few meaningless “quarterback controversy” debates.
Aldrick Robinson also played well. He was on the receiving end of one of Cousins late touchdown catches. His performance will make the decision for the last receiver spot that much harder to make.
An in-depth review of the next “last four in and first four out” will be available tomorrow. Stay tuned to Riggo’s Rag for more!
