Morris: ‘I Never Met The Rookie Wall’

Posted by Andrew Walker on January 6, 2013 – 12:23 pm

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris said he didn’t even know what a rookie wall was until he was asked about it by a couple of reporters this season.

In this case, ignorance was bliss, as the running back turned in one of the best rookie rushing campaigns in NFL history, with 1,613 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Rookie wall? What rookie wall?

Morris this past week was a guest on the NFL Network’s “Around The League,” and talked about his season, as well as a few other topics — including today’s NFC Wild Card round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks at FedExField.

Rookies Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris have, to this point of the season, racked up nearly a combined 5,000 total yards and 31 total touchdowns.

That’s staggering production for a rookie quarterback-running back duo, but Morris hopes a recent knee injury to Griffin III won’t stall their momentum.

Morris joined the NFL Network’s “Around The League” today and talked about Griffin III participating in his first practice Wednesday since injuring his knee in the fourth quarter of the Redskins’ 31-28, overtime victory against the Baltimore Ravens.

The video of Morris’ appearance is below, but here’s a snippet from the interview, which was crashed at the end by two teammates:

By now, we all know what a great find rookie running back Alfred Morris has been for the Washington Redskins.

With 18 yards on Monday night against the New York Giants, he’ll become only the second Redskins rookie to rush for 1,000 yards in a season.

Morris — who is a nominee this week for Pepsi Max NFL Rookie of the Week — was a guest today on the NFL Network’s “Around The League” (see full video below), and was asked about what the casual NFL fan might not know about him.

“I believe in myself,” Morris said. “My work ethic is ridiculous. Me, just as a person, I know what I’m capable of doing. I chose the path less traveled. Not many people could have chose the path to go to [Florida Atlantic] and be able to come into the NFL and do what I’ve done. Nothing I’ve ever gotten on my path was given — I’ve earned everything. And I know how to go out there and earn it, set goals and attain my goals. Just my sheer work ethic and my heart — you can’t measure a man’s heart, and I have a whole lot of heart.”

Morris was also asked if he expected to contribute immediately when he was drafted by the Redskins in April:
