Morris: I never thought I'd play with someone like RGIII

Video interview: http://blogs.nfl.com/2012/12/06/alfred- ... -like-rg3/

Washington Redskins rookie running back Alfred Morris has rushed for 1,106 yards through 12 games. He ran to the Redskins facility early Thursday morning to chat with “NFL AM” about his coming-out party after being drafted in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Morris also discussed his quarterback, Robert Griffin III, saying the running back should be Rookie of the Year, the Redskins’ run to the playoffs and his now-famous car, “Boo”.

Very cool video. I feel like I do nothing but watch NFL-related TV shows when I'm at home and I still never see much Redskins stuff. Thank goodness for the eagle eyes on this board.

I can't say enough about our RB. In the future; when we have a healthy Helu type back, we are really going to run even better. He lacks the speed to turn the corner but he is a throw back. We needed that. Last year we really didn't have anyone that could take a beating and keep on running. I predict he will give us many years.

Morris is such an impressive young man. We are lucky to have him.

Great player. High character guy. That's the makings of which winning teams are built. Glad to have him here.

I keep an eye on NFL.com. They have featured a ridiculous amount of Redskins coverage (well, RGIII coverage really) this season.

I liked his response to the question about our mentality w/r/t to winning out to make the playoffs. That locker room has made light speed jump from a few years ago.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

to be clear, 'winning out', does NOT put us in the playoffs - we still need 'help'

BUT

I'd be very surprised if we were not in the playoffs if we can go 10-6

we could even win the NFC East :twisted:
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

HAIL


Currently 50-41
