The -- RG three could Alfred Morris make a Bryant. Our rookie of the year in keys to victory verses the Seahawks I'm Jennifer Williams alongside Redskins insider heart -- this year and Redskins blogger. -- Tim guys let's talk about RG three's mean. He said that if he's not a 100% he's playing but then he also said that he would never tell the media what percentage he's that that's. Information for his teammates only he doesn't like playing with a -- doesn't look like the priest is going anywhere. How did you get how big of a concern is his -- Turk let's start with you --
I don't think there's any concern for re injury I don't think the Redskins would allow the face of the franchise to be out there on it if there was chance he could you know hurt himself again. We just walked out of the practice bubble where they were going to practice and as we were we came out. We noticed him changing knee -- again it looked to me like he might be experimenting with a brace that wasn't as heavy duty is the one he's been he's been wearing. He told us. On Wednesday that that braces actually caused him to limp a little bit and I think you've seen that on some on some of his -- a natural weapon but you've seen that. But -- the same time he did. Rushed for 63 yards on six carries last week it's an average of ten and a half so you know as our Shanahan joked -- today you know he's not complaining on that -- battery.
Irish we talked about that -- kind of was wearing a rowboat QB brace during the game Sunday vs the Cowboys is that his contact -- viewers saying. -- what do you think how big of a concern is that he.
Yeah you know so -- and he goes back to he was able to get 63 yards but. Did you lose some of the explosiveness and I think really scares defense is as his ability to too young to return on a dime. I think -- got the straight ahead speed. But you know -- you're you're just real yet now again I don't think -- question of of the knee so much is the brace but the brace is protecting me I guess it's all. Saw one at the same in 61 half dozen other but I I was a little more concerned that you passed for 400 yards. Now that did you know that game plan was to give the guy we'll talk about it minute here Alfred wars. About you know I think I think every if you -- for 63 yards against the Seahawks at the Perez should be able to win. If he can pass from more like 200 yards.
You start had anything to do with them maybe adjusting the game plan you know maybe in the in the the first quarter because. Let's not assume he wasn't very sharp who was in the -- that worries seeing romo's first off five or six passes some of them were quite off the mark. And then all of a sudden we saw Morse getting it was Morse left or right more to the middle. And now obviously he he ruled the day.
Well let's let's talk about -- a little bit here at the Cowboys set heading into Sunday that their game plan was to shut down more space on him as the most explosive. Threat on offense on and they weren't able to -- so let's not argue your -- puzzled drama here at do you think. -- I am do you Redskins fans voting for either Morse or -- thing could take votes away from -- and rich let's start with you.
I'm I mean it could potentially bad but you know I I think. You know you have Griffin who is really the catalyst of the team you know it's yeah it's hard to say you know one. You know one opens up Plainfield one opens up the game together because they're both they both come in and showed you can you can really separate him. But I I think Robert is anymore more of a unique talent then is Alfred state taken up on the way out -- from Alfred. You know he's he's got captains chest he's the team leader he's -- guys understand. Hey let's do this Morse is certainly doing his job and doing very well. But you know I I think RG three is is the man in five. Five fives 56 you're sure now you know unfortunately -- the shelf life in the NFL running backs. Alfred we'll be -- hopefully he'll get a nice big contract. -- some money going to retirement. Yeah definitely not now I don't think he can do that. But then go go to do that at -- RG -- you'll still be quarterback the Redskins in and making pro bowls and playing level.
let's talk about Morris no longer the other rookie what do you think. You know I mean he certainly jumped on to the national stage last week with that three touchdown. 200 yet 200 -- yard performance but I I completely agree with rich here. I -- a -- Beisel agrees which I mean on Robert Griffin the third is the MVP of this team he deserves to be the rookie of the year in the league I mean you know he's also the Pro Bowl -- one of the Pro Bowl representatives of this team. If our picking it just me if it would. With all apologies to -- everything offers on it be your.
