Just sharing a little statistical oddity that I noticed. From the division-winning 2012 season to the shit-stained ’13 and now into ’14, the one constant, the one Redskin who has played at a high and steady level through the ups and downs, is Alfred Morris:
That’s pretty awesome, and good for an average of 90 rushing yards per game through 34 career games. If that doesn’t sound like a lot, know that it’s sixth-best all time, right between Eric Dickerson and Walter Payton. (Two spots ahead of Clinton Portis!)
Not bad for a 173rd overall pick who was a throw-in for Donovan McNabb. Go, FroMo, go.
Handing out labels following Skins games. Today, a 28-18 victory over Dallas.
Alfred Morris — That was one of the great individual performances in NFL history. Two hundred yards and three touchdowns in a division championship against Dallas. It was the most rushing yards in a game by a Redskins rookie, and gives him a) the most yards in a season by a Redskins running back, b) the third-most yards by a rookie RB and c) the second-most yards in the NFL this season. He says he’ll “never be a star,” but he already is.
Robert Griffin III — Had one bad wheel and no help from his receivers, but he didn’t turn it over, which was fantastic compared to sad Romo.
