After Making The Roster Youth Chase Roullier Jersey , Redskins Rookies Reflect On An Emotional DayFor several rookies in the Redskins locker room, making the roster was a rewarding feeling, a tribute to their hard work, and an emotional Saturday for their families.Kapri Bibbs among eight players signed to Redskins practice squad - The Washington PostThird quarterback Kevin Hogan, meanwhile, was claimed by the Denver Broncos.The logic behind Samaje Perine, not Kapri Bibbs, getting Redskins final RB spot | NBC Sports WashingtonThe Redskins decided to keep Samaje Perine on their 53-man roster instead of Kapri Bibbs, and while fans might not love the decision, the move is logical.Full accountability: Looking back at 53-man roster predictions | NBC Sports WashingtonThe Redskins released their 53-man roster on Saturday, and while the collection of players had a few surprises, generally the team did what was expected. How did it stack up to predictions?Need to Know: Redskins' problems in season openers can be traced to turnovers | NBC Sports WashingtonNeed to Know: Jay Gruden talked about the team’s problems in season openers. He could have said just one word—turnovers.There's one key quality that helped Danny Johnson make the Redskins | NBC Sports WashingtonHow did Danny Johnson go from undrafted to a member of the Redskins' secondary? He and his head coach agree on the driving force behind his rise.Redskins rookie outlook to start the season | Fanspeak.com This season Quinn figures to spend most of his time on special teams and could open the year as the Redskins primary punt returner. That should keep him on the active roster each week Youth Josh Doctson Jersey , which would help him get some work with the offense as well.Roster battle: Assessing the competition among Redskins running backs thru two preseason games The Redskins are holding running back tryouts in Asburn today because things are getting a little thin following a number of injuries, both major and minor.In addition to the running back losses we already knew about, Jay Gruden added another name to the list at his Saturday post-practice press conference.I haven’t seen a full list of names for who would be trying out today — Gruden was being a bit coy in the press conference when asked — but there’s at least one familiar name:It seems crazy, but with the level of injuries that the Redskins have faced at the running back position in just training camp and two preseason games, a player like Darkwa (or someone else) is not only assured of being added to the roster, but has a real shot at being active on the regular season roster for the opening game in Arizona.But that’ll be another article for a different day.Today, we’re going to look at the running backs not named Guice or Wellman that played against the Patriots and Jets in the first two weeks of preseason to see if we can sort out the running back battle among the incumbents before any new competition arrives.The analysis will include Martez Carter, despite the fact that he has already been waived; in fact, the analysis ranked him last among the backs on the roster before he was waived, lending credence to the Redskins’ decision to let him go.The evaluatorI’ve never made any secret of the fact that I am not the kind of guy who can break down film one play at a time.Knowing my limitations, I turn to others for help when I need it.Gibbs4potus (@westcoast_skins) did an outstanding job breaking down film on every undrafted rookie free agent in Redskin training camp in May, and he was the brains and the brawn behind the fine article looking at the competition at the returner positions among Redskin rookies that was published yesterday.The rating systemAs Kirk Cousins was always so fond of saying Youth Quinton Dunbar Jersey , “Every play is its own entity”.Comparing all the elements of a single running play with those of another is very much an apples-to-oranges comparison.There are just so many elements involved: the blocking, the play of the defense, the running back’s decision-making and explosion.In a deep-dive-breakdown where we compare two plays side-by-side, all those elements can be discussed and analyzed.This article, however, is supposed to be more of a broad-brush overview of several players across dozens of plays.In the end, we decided to rank each play as if it were a hotel or restaurant — with a 5 star system.It’s simple, intuitive, and allows for easy comparison.The structure of the articleThe article will be presented in three partsart 1 - I will list all the 5 star plays in a summary formatPart 2 - Each running back under review will be listed one-by-one, and every run that player has had in the preseason to date will be ranked from best to worstPart 3 - The players under review will be ranked from best to worst, with a short commentary on what expectations are for that player based on performance in the two preseason gamesLet’s get to it.Analysis from Gibbs4potusPart 1 - The full list of five-star runsSamaje Perine - Patriots, 2nd Quarter Youth Adrian Peterson Jersey , 12:46Samaje Perine - Patriots, 2nd Quarter, 11:31Samaje Perine - Jets, 1st Quarter, 7:41Kapri Bibbs - Patriots, 4th Quarter, 3:27Martez Carter - Jets, 3rd Quarter, 7:25Martez Carter - Jets, 3rd Quarter, 6:55Part 2 - The rating of every run by every backRob KelleyPhoto by Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesSamaje PerinePaul Rutherford-USA TODAY SportsByron MarshallPhoto by Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesBiB: The scope of this article is to look at each back based on his runs — receiving targets are not included.Everyone knows that Byron Marshall is more of a receiver, and that — if he were to make the Redskin regular season roster — it would likely be as a backup 3rd down player behind Chris Thompson.He had a wonderful catch and run touchdown against the Patriots to open up the team’s scoring this preseason Womens Josh Doctson Jersey , but this analysis indicates that — unlike Chris Thompson, who can carry the ball as a running back very effectively inside or outside the tackles — Marshall poses very little threat as a runner.This may be enough for the Redskins coaches and personnel staff to look elsewhere when deciding the final roster spots.Kapri BibbsGeoff Burke-USA TODAY SportsMartez CarterPhoto by Patrick McDermott/Getty ImagesPart 3 - Overall Rankings#1 Samaje PerineRunner-4.0Receiver-3.0 Blocker-3.0Returner-3.0#2 Kapri BibbsRunner-3.0Receiver-4.0 Blocker-3.0Returner-3.0#3 Rob KelleyRunner- 3.0Receiver- 2.0 Blocker- 3.0Returner- 2.0#4 Byron MarshallBiB: I want to interject the point again that I asked Gibbs4potus to rank these players as runners (with receiving, blocking & ST taken into account when running skills were rated equally), which is why Rob Kelley is ranked above Byron Marshall, and Bibbs is above Kelley.Clearly, Marshall is the superior receiving back, and might well be ranked above Kelley overall if receiving and returning skills were prioritized over running.Runner-2.0Receiver-4.0 Blocker-3.0Returner-3.0#5 Martez CarterBiB: In fact, Carter won’t be given any further chance to develop with the Redskins, unless he remains available and is brought back to the Practice Squad at the end of the month.He was waived on Saturday with an injury designation.Runner-3.0Receiver-3.0 Blocker-2.0?Returner-3.0Summary
