WR Josh Morgan Named Redskins’ Man of the Year

WP~

Wide receiver Josh Morgan has been named the Redskins’ Walter Payton man of the year, the team announced on Wednesday.

The award is recognition for charity work in the community as well as play on the field.

The D.C. native was a regular this season at the Redskins’ weekly charity outreach events. Morgan will receive a $1,000 donation to his designated charity, Beacon House, a program for at-risk children in the Disrict.

“The way I was raised, they always told me that God’s going to bless you with a lot of things,” Morgan said. “So, it’s up to you to bless people with all the blessings that he blessed you with.”


Kinda how he played. Sprang Griff for the 76 yarder and the pylon TD against the Cowboys ... I think.

The article in the post says he will win $1,000 donated to his favorite charity.

For a league that fines people $7,850 for socks too high, a grand for charity seems cheap.
SPIT HAPPENS!!

All the fine money goes to charity, but I agree that Josh's charity (and each other team's winner) should get more..

Perhaps I need to examine my own heart; I tend to be too critical of Morgan.

I respect what he has done and has been acknowledged for. Its great that he always wanted to be a Redskins. Hope he grows into a serious WR threat.

This is cool, Congrats to Joshua!
I really had high (unrealistic?) hopes for him here, so was a little let down at first.. That said, he developed nicely and I think will be a serious YAC guy next year. He seems to get a little mean streak in him and I like to see that intensity and fight. -a lot of players this year had that fire for a change. Good ish

Good for him for getting this award but IMO he was a big let down. For the amount of $$$ we're paying him I expect a lot more. He's not even on the map when it come to NFL receivers.
Sure he had some block's to help spring some big gains but his numbers were very pedestrian. He may have led the team in receptions (48) but his yards/reception was the lowest on the team among receivers with 24 or more receptions (10.6). He only caught 2 TD's. His longest reception was only 32 yds. & let's not forget that his temper has cost us. Before I start singing his praises I want to see $11.5 Million dollars worth.
as always...HTTR!!!

True man but his anger only cost us that one game (unless I totally missed something; always a possibility). I wanted his head after that so I've been slow to forgive.

I'm not impressed with him either but I truly wish our current WRs would just really work hard this off season to be great next year. That said, I still want another good WR added to the team...preferably a GREAT WR

We hardly threw the ball (3rd from last in NFL in attempts?) yet had 4 guys catch 40+ (well, one had 38) and TE caught over 50.

Josh played well ... Joshua.
