Morris Knocks One Out For Madden 25

Last week at the E3 video game convention in Los Angeles gamers and sports fans alike got another foretaste of the 25th installment of Madden.

In what has become the norm for this year’s version of the virtual football experience, Robert Griffin III and the Redskins were heavily featured in the game’s first two promotional packages with No. 10 taking long touchdown runs to the house against fellow NFC division winners Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers.

While Griffin III got the brunt of the attention everyone seemingly forgot about Alfred Morris yet again.

Sure all of Morris’ end zone trips last year came courtesy of pounding the rock on the ground, but that doesn’t mean that he can’t get the job done in the passing game.

Redskins Nation—here is your first glimpse at Morris’ first NFL receiving touchdown and the debut of his video game homerun celebration.

On a first down inside the redzone, virtual Robert Griffin III lined up in the shotgun formation with No. 46 to his left. Sure he could have found Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon or Josh Morgan on the outside, but why not hit Morris on a screen pass.

Glad to see you score the touchdown, Alfred, but did you really need to hurdle into the end zone?

A few other observations from this brief five minute clip:

1. Head coach Mike Shanahan may want to hit the beach over the next six weeks; he is looking way too pale.
2. At the 2:26 mark you’ll see Aldrick Robinson’s biggest fan—jersey and all.
3. Kirk Cousins appears to have ditched his golden locks in favor of red hair for the 2013 season (2:58 mark).
4. Rob Jackson has clearly been working on his speed during the offseason.
5. Despite being one of the oldest players in the NFL, London Fletcher shows the rest of the guys how he has been able to play in 240 consecutive games—by standing like a statue when he is on the sidelines (4:31 mark).

If these Madden 25 videos are any indication of which squad will be “that team” everyone wants to play with this season, it’s safe to say the Redskins win in a landslide.

Hail to the Redskins!

    Awesome. love the home run celebration by A. Morris. Here’s my bone to pick in what I seen. cool, they got the home run, but what about his face mask. It’s not right. Missing the extra bars. They get his celebration but a simple grafic in making his face mask right…hmmm they got a guy from the giants mask on the game. I’ve been with MADDEN since the begining. Can someone get this out to EA Sports PLEASE!!! And when are we going to see better grafics with everyone on sideline..wow the ps4 is almost out..please..EA get it in gear and stop keeping the same type of grafics…we are in the 21st century right…oh hell. my cels touch screen went bad…lol maybe we can re-correct all this in the 22nd century..lol..for crying out loud…but hey..its all about money..ooooh they have enough. Anyway, what can you do. Madden isn’t like the nfl..sooo much is left out without going into detail. two points. can you get the instant replay fixed. the computer makes 1 foot in bounds catches and where’s the option for extra celebrating. I’ll take the 15 yards…lol theres more but i guess what ever strings along in madden to buy the same game every year…oh here’s a thought. allow other game makers to render their version..Football fans are stuck with the same-oh- same 0h..lol. thats my two cents. and take it and have ea make real nfl type game..wow..anyway..to the skins fans..we will rock the boat!!! HTTR….JC

    Lets hope they remove Norv Turner from San Diego. He make a cameo appearance on the sidelines at the beginning.

    Unsuprisingly Madden still doesnt have “authentic” players. Morris is rocking a 2-bar. Leave it to EA to completely screw up year after year

    My only question is, what is Fletcher doing on the sideline when the defense is on the field?
