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.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    Biggest surprise to me is the ypc for this season being higher than 2012, the year of the read option. Also just thought I’d throw out I had a depressing thought about winning games where Cousins looked mediocre but sticking with him because “All that matters is a qb that wins” then abandoning Griffin and having him sign with the Patriots in a year or two then having Griffin go on to win multiple SuperBowls with the Patriots and the Skins never getting out of the second round of the playoffs. If that happens, I’m done with football.

    The only reasonable present-player jersey choice.

      I would rock a Silverback jersey for sure.
