Morris last Sunday rushed for 120 yards on 22 carries in Washington’s 27-24 loss to the New York Giants.
Morris beat out Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck, New England linebacker Dont’a Hightower, Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin and Minnesota safety Harrison Smith for the award.
A Redskins player has now been named rookie of the week in four of the seven weeks of the NFL season. Quarterback Robert Griffin III has won it three times.

Ok RED this is for you... I had a strange feeling about this guy and so did Red. He tried to humor me by giving me anything I could read on him during camp. I just liked his style and figured he would be durable.

Thanks Kilmer. What really sold me on Morris was the comments by his college coach Howard Schnellenberger. He compared Morris to Larry Csonka. IMO, Schnellenberger is one of the old time gurus of football. The way Morris runs over and carries people, Schnellenberger was right.

You might remember this video that I posted after the draft.

Love the comment about the gyroscope embedded in Morris.

Thanks Champsturf, on the correction on Schnellenberger and to Deadskins, for the the correction on not making further corrections.

Not to pick, but I'm pretty sure that it's "Schnellenberger." That's what he signed on my boy's FAU game ball. ;-)
