One’s a home run hitting, 20-year-old car driving running back that was considered nothing more than a blocking fullback prospect at one point.
The other, gave defenders a quick look at his Dracula fangs 113 times last year.
What do you think Redskins fans? Is it the third-year running back out of Florida Atlantic or the former Mount Union Purple Raider?
Torn between #Alfred Morris and #PierreGarcon? Figured.
Regardless of this social media poll, some career perspective/possibilities for both:
–In two seasons, Morris has rushed for 2,888 yards on 4.7 yards per carry with 20 touchdowns. His 2,888 rushing yards and 20 rushing touchdowns are currently 12th most in each category in franchise history.
–In his rookie season, he set the franchise’s single-season record for rushing yards with 1,613.
–Has nine 100-yard games and a 200-yard game.
–Scored two touchdowns in his professional debut vs. the New Orleans Saints.
–While he’s not known as a “speed guy”, No. 46 led the league in 20-plus yard runs in 2013 with 10.
–Also became the first Redskin since Clinton Portis (2007-2008) to rush for at least 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons in 2013.
–Needs 225 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns to enter the franchise’s top-10 in each category.
–Set franchise record for the most receptions in a single season with 113 in 2013, passing the great Art Monk in the process.
–His 1,346 receiving yards in 2013 were the most of his six-year career.
–Needs only 502 receiving yards for 5,000 in his career.
–Of the 27 wide receivers taken before him in the 2008 NFL Draft only Jordy Nelson and DeSean Jackson have more receiving yards than Garcon.
