Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

seeee thats what i thought, the tickets i just bought, say washington redskins vs atlanta falcons in black, and the whole background of the ticket is a bunch of skins emblems, far left of the ticket says game 4, far right says washington redskins in red, with a skins helmet and a little fedex field under it, under the redskins falcons it says, sunday, october 7 2012- 100pm upper level. then, ticket price : $79.00(plus tax). then says enter gate: bud light pavilion. has the bar code and the section, row and seat. on the back of the ticket is all the fine print stuff and on the top is a pink redskins emblem and on the bottom it says, washington redskins charitable foundations, with another little pink skins emblem. it looks 100 percent legit and has all the little small like numbers and markings as a legit ticket but i dont know. haha i hope its legit because at 5am me and my buddy will be leaving VB for fedex with sean taylor and rg3 jerseys on... thanks for the responses guys

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

never should have drafted him, w his lack of production, his fumbling problems, his bad attitude, he's just one big headache. terrible example of a redskin

Alfred Morris now has Snyder on his iPhone, and he is being personally managed by CP & Dolemite Jenkins.

The set I saw also had Fletcher with the wrong number (52).
Strap it up, hold onto the ball, and letís go.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

Steal of the draft. Great kid and great effort. We have now seem seven strong weeks from Morris. He has some big holes but he hits them fast and hard and always churns out yards. Really impressive kid, always moving forward.
Just win.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

Alfred Morris turned out to break and set the Redskins season record for rushing yardage in his rookie season. From John Riggins to Stephen Davis to Clinton Portis to Alfred Morris. That's some pretty great company Morris has placed himself in.
Touchdown Washington Redskins!!!

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

So I was looking through my draft magazines from last year, wondering what some of the negatives where on players who had big years (Casey hayward, janoris Jenkins, Ty Hilton, Doug Martin, Russell Wilson to name a few).

Then I looked in my profootballweekly draft magazine for our buddy Alfred Morris (to their credit they are the only draft magazine that did an analysis on him; the other magazines either listed his name under the best of the rest, or didn't list him at all).

First off the magazine didn't list him under running backs. He is a FB to them. And not even the best one--Brady Ewing of Wisconsin is "better than him".

But I got a kick out of his negatives:
"Lacks ideal bulk"
"Below average speed for a RB"
"Tight hipped and straightlinish"
"Limited foot quickness, elusiveness"
"Lacks lead blocking experience"

"In our eyes: a college running back, Morris lacks speed and agility to remain there in the pros. Is a physical, competitive inside runner whose aggression in pass protection, hard-nosed style and outstanding intangibles indicate he could make (a) successful conversion to fullback."
"Anyones better than Madieu Williams"

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

^ The knocks against him coming out are actually fairly accurate. He's not fast, he's a little stiff in the hips and isn't super elusive. But the things you can't measure or always see on tape is what makes him go. Heart, determination, smarts, etc. If he went anywhere else I kind of doubt he would have had the same success. He's a perfect fit in a Shanahan running game.

Re: Alfred Morris pick 6.3

I think he is more "elusive" than given credit for - Is he going to pull a Barry Sanders'esque "Oh dear God! I didn't know that was physically possible" move? No. At the same time, he had some quickness and flexibilty in the small area. More than once he left a man tackling air on some of his longer runs.

As to lacking bulk, I think scouts completely underestimated or discounted his lower body strength.

Yes. He is a perfect fit in Shanny's system. However, I think he would be a solid back for any team that had decent blocking.
