Mike Thomas Was Also Rookie Of The Year

[With the start of training camp just a few weeks away, we are taking a look back at some “under the radar” players from year past. Today I take a look back at the career of dual-threat running back Mike Thomas. While his career with the Washington Redskins only spanned four years, the impact that he left is still being talked about to this day.]

The success that Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris had as a rookie last year had us thinking about the last time the franchise had a rusher who made a big impact as rookie.

The younger generations of Redskins Nation probably aren’t familiar with any, but some older fans may remember a speedster from UNLV by the name of Mike Thomas who was called on to replace aging legend Larry Brown.

While most men would have crumbled under the pressure of being handed the reigns that were held by an icon like Brown, Thomas thrived–right from the start.

Kirk Cousins Isn’t One For Skinny Jeans

Last year when the Washington Redskins selected quarterback Kirk Cousins with the 102nd overall pick in the draft, the team was getting a second young, accurate signal caller who was NFL ready within a 24 hour span.

His legs?

While he doesn’t have Robert Griffin III-esque speed (no quarterback really ever has) he did run a decent 4.9 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine—not bad for a guy that some have deemed as “too slow” to run the Burgundy and Gold’s complex read-option offense.

But do you want to know the real secret behind why he isn’t one of the first players to finish wind sprints?

As this picture from his Twitter account shows (@KirkCousins8), he clearly isn’t giving his legs enough breathing room off the field to decompress.

Alfred Morris Once Again Being Doubted

Just last Thursday, NFL.com released the final installment of the Top 100 Players of 2013 list behind (expected) cheers and jeers.

While the Washington Redskins didn’t have a player in the top-10 (highest ranked is Robert Griffin III at No. 15) they did have four appearances, one of which was 2012 sensation Alfred Morris.

Behind a franchise-record 1,613 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns, No. 46 became a hit with Redskins Nation.

He hasn’t, however, felt the same level of love outside the DMV.

You see not only was the FAU star the ninth highest running back on the list, but he was also snubbed from selection on the “All-Under-25 Team” in February. As if that wasn’t enough, Pro Football Talk did their own top-100 players list and what has become a rather absurd norm, Morris was rated as the 83rd best player in the league.

While I am still trying to figure out the bizarre reasoning behind the lack of respect for No. 46, I realized that I am not alone in this feeling.

Two Redskins Uniforms Greatest Ever?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 2, 2013 – 11:34 am

In the modern NFL era players attempt to individualize their looks with menacing facemasks, specialized arm sleeves and visors, but when it comes down to it no matter if you’re the star quarterback (Robert Griffin III) or the punter, everyone wears the same uniform on game days.

Over on NFL.com Dave Dameshek has lined up 32 of the greatest throwback unis and all 32 modern day getups for the right at having the honor of “The Greatest Uniform in NFL History”.
