Morris, Cousins, Polumbus Attend International Justice Mission Event

Happy Birthday, Alfred Morris!
More On New Cornerback Justin Rogers

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris, quarterback Kirk Cousins and tackle Tyler Polumbus, along with their three wives, attended the annual International Justice Mission fundraising event Thursday night.

IJM, a non-profit founded in 1997 and led by Gary Haugen, seeks to bring justice to countries with residents living in poverty. The theme of Thursday’s event focused on impunity, an issue affecting areas who have corrupt or lack of police authority in which criminals don’t suffer the consequences of illegal acts. For Cousins, who has attended each of the last three years, the cause is an important one.

“It’s an organization I like to spotlight because I just think they do a really good job of really maximizing their resources they have to make a real difference,” Cousins said. “I keep in touch with them year round.”

When Cousins was a rookie, Polumbus, who had been an active member and donor to IJM previously, asked if he’d like to join him at his table in an effort to fill some of empty seats. Cousins, who already knew about the organization from his days in high school, jumped at the opportunity and was delighted IJM had its headquarters in Washington, D.C.

“It’s an amazing organization that my wife and I have supported for six or seven years now,” Polumbus said. “They work with anything from sex trafficking to people who are wrongly imprisoned, or shouldn’t be imprisoned, and land grabbing cases. This is all across the world. Truly, I think they’re one of the most powerful and influential organizations in rescuing people out of situations that are terrible.”

Cousins vowed in high school that IJM would be the first charitable cause he would donate towards, once he had the resources. Now, he attends and gives to the event yearly, and is hoping he and his wife can someday travel abroad to India, the Philippines, or Central America to experience how IJM works in the field.

“IJM seeks to bring justice by going in there, investigating undercover, and prosecuting [criminals] so when their consequences are brought to the surface, hopefully it will not only free a few people but it will create a culture of change, of justice, and a lack of impunity,” said Cousins, who might pursue similar kind of work once his football career ends.

“When I come face to face with it is when I’ll really be moved.”

Several Washington Redskins players traded in their shoulder pads for aprons and name tags Monday evening.

Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan hosted his second-annual Blitz For The Better Celebrity Waiter Night at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Arlington, Va., where Kerrigan and nine of his teammates spent a couple hours serving hors d’oeuvres and mingling with fans — and all for a great cause.

Kerrigan started his Blitz For The Better foundation last year to provide opportunities, support and resources to children and families in need in the Washington, D.C. area — particularly for children who have serious illnesses, special needs or are physically challenged.

Alfred Morris’ 45-Yard Touchdown Run Vs. Dallas A Top 100 Play

A little known fact that is often forgotten when considering the magnificent play of running back Alfred Morris—last season, the Pro Bowler led the NFL in 20-yard-plus runs with 10. No other played reached double digits in that category.

His most memorable 20-yards-plus carry came against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium on Sunday Night Football where he sliced up Dallas’ defense for a 45-yard touchdown run–still the longest of his blossoming career.

Video of NFL.com’s No. 64 play from the 2013 season:

Alfred Morris Surprised By News Of McConaughey’s Appearance

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 21, 2014 – 5:14 pm

 

Alfred Morris loves to watch movies.

He especially loves to go to the theater, and then go out and add to his large DVD collection.

So it should come as no surprise that Morris is well aware of the work of actor Matthew McConaughey.

Anyway, Morris on June 4 will be joining the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation in its first-ever “Movies With Morris” event, in which Morris and several of his teammates (currently scheduled to attend are Chris Baker, Darrel Young, Nick Sundberg, Ryan Kerrigan and Robert Griffin III) will treat attendees with a movie of their choice, and a bunch of other goodies.

Morris went on the set of Redskins Nation today to promote the event, but was given a bit of breaking news by host Larry Michael:

Alfred Morris’ Madden Face Scan

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 20, 2014 – 11:01 am

Alf Madden

It’s time to add to the legend of Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris.

Whether it’s his rags to riches story of being a sixth-round pick to record breaker or the fact he’s nonchalantly ignored the newest offers in the automobile industry, Morris’ personality is one that is easy to gravitate towards.

That disposition has also lead him to be a wanted man in the virtual world.

While he didn’t beat out Andrew Luck in the Madden 15 cover vote, something fans may actually be okay with, he did have the guys from EA Sports travel to Ashburn to have his face scanned for the game.

A pretty awesome alternative to the cover. Alfred agreed.

“I’m happy that now my actually face and not the unattractive faces on the game right now,” he said with a chuckle about what it feels like to have his likeness on the game.

Here’s more from Morris’ session with the video game production team:

Throwback Thursday–2012 Draft Class’ First Taste Of The NFL

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 15, 2014 – 11:15 am

It may be hard to believe, but it’s has indeed been two full years since the 2012 draft class was just starting their collective nascent career.

Headlined by quarterback Robert Griffin III and bolstered by the hard-nosed efforts of Alfred Morris and quality fill-in appearances from quarterback Kirk Cousins, the 2012 class is certainly one that lives in a special place in Redskins Nation’s heart.

With the 2014 rookie minicamp getting ready to start-up, here’s a look back at just some of the highlights from the 2012 class’ first season:

Sixth Time’s The Charm–Alfred Morris And Pierre Garcon Top Sixth Round Picks

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.

Together, Alfred Morris and Pierre Garcon have been two of the most effective weapons for Robert Griffin III over the last two years. The twosome is also being paired for this all caps reason today:

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:
