Alfred Morris Selected On Sixth Sense List

For his part, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan is nothing short of one of the greatest talent evaluators in NFL history. Not only have his first round picks (Trent Williams, Ryan Kerrigan and Robert Griffin III) prospered since the two-time Super Bowl winning coach joined the organization in January 2010, but he’s rounded out this year’s squad, already tapped as being one of the best in the NFL, with late round gems both selected on his own and discarded by the other 31 franchises.

As it stands now, 11 of the 22 projected starters for the Week 1 showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles were selected in the fourth round or later, or were free agents the second after Mr. Irrelevant learned of his new perks—outside of playing football.  Shanahan’s most notable late round selection? Look no further than the always humble, do whatever it takes second year running back Alfred Morris.

While most considered Morris to be just a filler pick when he was selected in the sixth round of last year’s draft, Shanahan knew exactly what he was getting himself into. After all, the best running back he ever had during his tenure in Denver was Terrell Davis—a sixth round selection himself out of the University of Georgia.

Fast-forward to today where Davis, with over 7,500 career rushing yards, 60 touchdowns and two Super Bowl rings, selected his six favorite running backs not named Adrian Peterson. Life is good when you’re the league MVP.

Robert Griffin III 16th On Latest QB Rank

Tell me the last time a quarterback who won AP Offensive Rookie of the Year, broke numerous prestigious records that were previously considered a foregone conclusion that they were unbreakable and led a franchise to its first division title in 13 years—all in his first season—is consider to have his arrow “flat” entering Year 2? You haven’t?

Well I guess there’s a first for everything because in ESPN John Clayton’s starting quarterback rankings Robert Griffin III checks in as the 16th best starting gun slinger in the NFL today.

The cherry on top—he’s in the “Chad Pennington Division”.  Yeah that just happened.  So what the reasoning behind the reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year’s placement?

Who Was MV(Redskin) Against Bucs?

Behind the news that star quarterback Robert Griffin III had been cleared to play against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football 11 days from now, was the Redskins’ team-oriented domination of not only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday but over the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers earlier in preseason.

Putting aside the Chris Johnson 58-yard touchdown for a minute, the Redskins have been clicking all cylinders in every facet. Coming from a two-time Super Bowl champion in Mike Shanahan and a general manager who was born to be a football great in Bruce Allen, the duo’s decision to move training camp away from home, citing its influence on team camaraderie,  need not go unwarranted. After an 11 day hiatus from game day, the Washington Redskins outscored their final three opponents 84-32. Twist those stats any way you may and it’ll still equate to a team that’s determined to add to the trophy case.

Still, there were a few performances that stood out tonight and have been selected as candidates for MVR(edskin).

I could give all of you who went turned off the Redskins preseason finale just a tad bit too early a written recap of all that went down, but with the three-day weekend about to beckon it’s beauty upon us, I’m sure most of you are already in vacation mode—whatever that may entail. So instead of another written recap of last night’s happenings, here’s a Friday treat.

First up, David Amerson’s first NFL interception against a man he’s probably picked off more times than his age (21)—former NC State teammate Mike Glennon:

Players Looking Both Behind And Ahead

Well it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that this franchise is possibly on the verge of something big and last night was living proof that this team’s depth is unquestionably as deep as any of the other 31 NFL franchises.

Hey how else do you explain the drubbings that have taken place over the last two games? Granted neither the Bills nor Buccaneers made the playoffs last season but both have been selected on various “must watch” lists for the coming season.

Despite the slate being wiped clean as of this morning and every team restarting at 0-0, the Redskins have tasted success once again and demand for seconds. As the team flew back to the D.C. area in the wee hours of the morning, the players not only tweeted their approval of the first 4-0 preseason since 1985, but of the preseason being a thing of the past and the real games starting now.

Cornerback Josh Wilson:
