I Apologize To You, Alfred Morris

This thread in no way is meant to be a duplicate of any of the other "Hail" or Kudos" to Alfred Morris threads posted.

I would like to apologize to Alfred Morris and who else on here would like to as well? I seriously laughed at this guy and doubted him at the beginning of the season. Not knowing his story at all or seeing any tape on him, i just wrote him off as another stopgap fill in running back low round draft pick that would be worse than royster, hightower and helu(none of whom i were particularly impressed with anyway). When i heard the name Alfred Morris, i thought of Marcus Mason.(Many of you remember him i'm sure). I was confident that our offense would falter from having some no named slow rookie running back who would miss blocking assignments and get RG3 killed. After the 1st game of the season in New Orleans when you ran for 96 yards and 2tds, i was hoping that your perfromance wasn't a fluke, but in reality i knew it was and said to myself "this guy won't keep that up!". After your early season fumbles, i was expecting for you to go to the end of the bench and sulk, hide, and become shell shocked like many other rookies.

I'm sorry Alfred Morris but i'm glad you proved me wrong. If Adrian Peterson did not defy all health odds this year(which is what he did), you Alfred Morris would hold the rushing title in the NFL this year. What i am more impressed with is that the success of Morris is not the offensive line, it is not RG3, it is Morris himself. Yes, the line had opened up holes, but most of Alfreds good runs are him making defenders miss on the intial point of contact and creating yards that was never there in the first place. Yes, RG3 keeps teams from constantly stacking the box, but even when teams knew that Morris was running, they couldn't stop him. When Kirk Cousins started, Morris ran for 87 yards and 2 tds.

Alfred Morris also taught me another thing. Pure speed does not define a running back. I called him slow and said that guy would never be able to get to the second level. Well, in order to get to the second level, you have to get past those first blocks, make correct reads and make people miss (which is why Chris Johnson's world class speed means nothing!). The Cowboys game last week showed me why Alfred Morris will not be a fluke, however he is the real deal and will be a 1,000 yard rusher for more years to come.

Morris's fame has gone to his head and he now insists on the new first name "You." He should be called "You Alfred Morris" from now on.

Some people are just too sentimental about how much they hate a player.

People need to learn not to judge a book by its cover. You should have went to Youtube.com and watched videos of Alfred Morris running for long gains at Florida Atlantic. In conjunction with Mike Shanahan's track record of drafting so many unheralded running backs, you should have just sat back and observed.

The preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts at Fed Ex Field this past August was a strong indication like no other what Alfred Morris could do. Shame on you.

Re: I Apologize To You Alfred Morris

I think an apology is in order for this more than anything
