The One Constant Has Been FroMo

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:

2012: 16 G, 1,613 YD, 4.8 AVG, 13 TD, 4 FUM
2013: 16 G, 1,275 YS, 4.6 AVG, 7 TD, 5 FUM
2014 (projected), 16 G, 1,408 YDS, 4.9 AVG, 16 TD, 0 FUM

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.

Redskins-Cowboys NFC East Championship Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following Skins games. Today, a 28-18 victory over Dallas.

Winners

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.

The offensive line — Paved the way for 274 yards rushing, was rarely flagged and gave up just one sack, even if Josh LeRibeus had to make an appearance. It was beautiful.

Jim HaslettBlitzed like hell, which was not only fun to watch but highly effective, holding Dallas to 18 points and under 300 yards.
