Can Alfred Morris stay productive?

The Washington Redskins have relied on their running backs for many years. In 2012 the Redskins selected Alfred Morris in the sixth round. In his first two seasons Morris had over 1,000 yards in each season and 20 total touchdowns in his career. The last two years Morris has the second most rushing yards only behind Adrian Peterson.  After becoming a well known player in his rookie year Morris made his first Pro Bowl in the 2013-14 season.

RGIII has emerged as the Redskins offensive and team leader this offseason. With a new coach in town Washington can hit the reset button after last year’s abysmal season. Griffin has set the tone for players this offseason, and that message has been clear from Griffin. After safety Ryan Clark signed with the team Griffin called him, congratulated him, and immediately told him: “Now let’s go to work.”

The Redskins have their workhorse running back in Alfred Morris. However, the depth chart after Morris is a bit of a mystery at this point.

 

With a new coaching staff in town, Alfred Morris should be the only back on Washington’s roster that feels good about his job security. Jay Gruden has a history of using two running backs, including a running back that can catch passes out of the backfield.

Here I was thinking it was Jon Gruden

220px-Jay_GrudenSo a new head coach has come to town. It’s the TV guy, Jon Gruden right? No it’s his brother, Jay. Hey close enough. The real head coach, Jay Gruden, guided the Bengals offense to the playoffs as offensive coordinator. Wait, isn’t that the offense of accident-prone Andy Dalton? Accidents in this case are interceptions.

Anyway, the train wreck of the Skins season is finally over. If the Bears hadn’t chocked away their playoff chances (at least two of my kids wouldn’t have left the Packers receiver wide open for a game-winning touchdown), than at least the Skins could claim that two of their wins came over playoff teams.

The last game of a lost season

490px-Kirk_cousins_redskinsI have the Redskins roster and here are the players I would keep for next year. It’s in alphabetical order so bear with me.
David Amerson: The NC State rookie is actually pretty good.
Barry Cofield: He’s a 300 pounder ffrom Northwestern so he should be smart enough to lose a few pounds.
Kirk Cousins: Didn’t look like the world beater from the week before but he’s still pretty good.
Fred Davis: Stay healthy pal, won’t you?
Reed Doughty: He’s really not that bad as a safety.
Kai Forbath: I know he’s scored very few points but that’s because we stink.
Pierre Garcon: He’s had a record-setting campaign and although he’s no Art Monk, he’s still pretty good.

Robert Griffin III: Great athlete. Could we play him somewhere else?

DeAngelo Hall: Actually a good story as we thought he was done. He’s done quite well if he wants to come back.
