Roy Helu Jr. thinks that the Redskins are going to the Super Bowl and he said so last week.
Along with Evan Royster and Tim Hightower, Helu is in the competition to be the Redskins’ starting running back. Each of them has noticeable strengths and flaws and it’s anyone’s guess as to who will be the starter on Sept. 9 when the Redskins open their season in New Orleans.
One reporter asked Helu if he thought the competition would go through the preseason. Helu thought it would go longer than that.
“I think it goes until February,” he replied with a smile. “Yeah, absolutely.”
There is just one game played in February and that is The Big One. So we had Helu predicting that the Redskins will both start and end their season in the Superdome, the site of this year’s Super Bowl.
What do you think? Do you like Helu’s confidence? Or should he think “one game at a time”?
