Granted, Morton didn't do much as a Redskin, but all of the sudden, now that he's no longer a Redskin and coming off of a torn ACL, he's going to help a team win 2 extra games and be one of the five most electric return men in the game? C'mon, am I missing something here?

Special Teams returners are only as good as your blockers. Watching him come out of New York who didn't think he'd be an amazing player for us. I don't understand the Morton hate, he said a guy on him by the time he touched the ball.

Peter King is an absolute TOOL! A perfect example of a "journalist" who caters to what's politically correct. Exemplifies everything that is wrong with the media. What a monumental dickhead he is.

Re: Further Proof of an Anti Redskins Bias in the National Media

Even if he gets this one right by blind luck, I'm totally with you dblanch66. King is clearly making this claim based on his hating of the skins and nothing else. Not to mention that Morton is coming off a serious knee injury late in the season. He'll probably take a while just to get back to health.

Another reason to ignore everything the man writes.

Re: Further Proof of an Anti Redskins Bias in the National Media

Antonio Brown (8.9 yds) and James Thrash (8.5 yds) did much better on punt returns than Morton (6.2 yds). Betts was better (23.0 yds) on Kickoffs than Morton (22.4) Morton only had one good kickoff return return during his tenure here. That one being the TD against the Saints in 2003. Antonio Brown also had a return for 66 yds and Ladell Betts had one for 70 yards. Morton's long? 49 yards. Cutting Morton was a great move.

Exactly. You can argue that we got better at blocking, but then our returns got better too. Morton is a fine return man, but he doesn't change a game by himself. Definatley not two wins by signing him.

Maybe instead of Cutting Morton, we should have cut King out of ESPN! Just don't talk about him anymore!

King is a joke, and he only proves it with a comment like this.

Re: Further Proof of an Anti Redskins Bias in the National Media

What's interesting is do you THINK he peers are like, "Wow, what hard-hitting and accurate news!" I don't see how he can be respected in the sports community with opinions like that.

Re: Further Proof of an Anti Redskins Bias in the National Media

I find it hilarious. Just wait until we drop Gardner. He'll probably say he's one of the top WRs in the league!

haha. "The redskins released Rod Gardner today, one of the most consistant wide recievers in league. Gardner alone will win 5 games for any team willing to pick him up."
