Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

I was temped to start a new thread on the topic, but I'll ask it here.

Based on what we we've seen from Helu and Royster (last season), do you guys feel Morris is the best running back or can either Helu or Royster still compete for the starting job next season?

Also, who'd you prefer?

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

I think it's AM's job to lose at this point.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

On pace for 1,503 yards and 16 touchdowns, been a great pickup and love his TD celebration.

That's a Arian Foster type season

Helu is arguably my favorite of the three but he's got no shot if all are healthy. Royster maybe.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

MS always likes to add RBs in the later rounds of the draft. I don't think we're set, not when Helu can't stay healthy.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

"I don't like losing yards. That's one of my pet peeves."

reminded me of larry johnson's great run, can anyone find a video of that negative yardage run?

lj's redskins stats:
5 attempts, 2 yards, longest rush... 7 yards.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

Helu is my favorite but like Matty said it's probably AM's job to lose. The nice thing is I'm comfortable with any of them starting.

Trung Canidate? That's a name I not heard in a long time. A long time. Those backs who played for the Redskins from the time Stephen Davis left until Clinton Portis came were scrubs. There's a lot to like about Alfred Morris. He's strong, he runs hard, and most of all, he's durable. Add in the fact that he was a sixth round steal and you have a top flight back. This Alfred Morris could have an all pro season as a rookie.

Well the Skins got him for 4, at least. If Morris continues at this rate the rest of his time hear he's going to command a high contract extension. Giving how shanny can churn out RBs from low rounders he's not going to get a gaudy extension here.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

Alfred Morris, fifth in the league in rushing and more important a very healthy 4.6 ypc (Arian Foster 3.7, Adrian Peterson 4.2) and ZERO fumbles (Lesean McCoy 3 fumbles). Gotta give the Oline credit as well.

Will this trade include a new ACL for Revis?
