Alfred Morris Video

Postby The Hogster » Wed Dec 12, 2012 12:18 pm

It's tough not to like this guy. But, more importantly, I believe he may be the best find of Mike Shanahan yet.

Awesome guy who was a lifelong redskins fan. I still think he needs to get his old #32 back as soon as it's available. The #46 is jinxed!! And it's a FB number. :lol: #Superstition HAIL

He's currently my favorite player on the team -- which is a big deal to me since Fletcher has been it since 2008.

You can tell that none of this goes to his head. Just look at his facial expressions after he's tackled and in games. He jumps up and wants to run back to the huddle.

He is one of a couple of players I believe would still be in the NFL even if he didn't get paid and didn't have fans.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

Awesome. We are so lucky to have RGIII at QB and Morris at RB. I hope they play together for 10 years. I have yet to hear an anecdote about either one that didn't make me like them even more.

Somehow I had missed that the Redskins were his favorite team growing up. Good man.

Wow, this is some guy. He's got his old battered car, he's kipping on his mum's couch, asking Santa what HE wants for Christmas, if you look up humility there's a picture of Alfred Morris looking back at you!

He is the complete antithesis of that Bertie Haynesworth!

So how does it work..? Do you have to go through 20 years of mediocrity and on-field disasters, where the best player by far you have in that generation is actually killed before his prime before you get blessed with the gifts we've been given this year...?!?!?!?

I mean, a likely future HoF QB, a tough no-nonsense hard running quality RB AND an accurate, consistant, reliable kicker with a strong leg - All in the one season!!!!

:hail:

My God, if we can repeat that next season with a CB, a Safety and a RT we'll be unstoppable!!!!!

:D

We deserve these great people and players. Don't forget. We've got Fred Davis, Brian Orakpo, Adam Carriker, and possibly two starting safeties returning next year.

True, true. And imagine if Chase Minnifield turns out to be a quality player also, and everything I've read about him suggests he wants it real bad, we'd be almost there I reckon....

We finally have a team that we can legitimately say is a couple of pieces away from being Super Bowl worthy.

We don't need big stars, just another great draft, and intelligent free agency. Add in the return of the injured guys, and we have the makings of a team that can legitimately win the NFC East more than once.

If Mr. Morris keeps this up for 10 years, he will also be a HOF member.

No kidding.

After I read that I thought that 10 years would be incredible seeing how an RB shelf-life is about 8 years --- and an RB who runs similarly to Morris' is even lower.

Cool video special on Alfred's 1991 Mazda. Just in case you thought it was a myth.

I really, REALLY would take Alfred over any HB we've had since Jerome Bettis.
