Knee Brace or not Robert Griffin III proves he is a dangerous guy behind center. Not only does this rookie hurt you with his ability to run the football, he has Alfred Morris in the backfield that can throw the combination at you. Morris a running back that was a late round draft pick is one of the best deals in the 2012 NFL draft. He ran for 200 yards in a game that the Washington Redskins had to win helping the team control the pace of the game on the ground. Morris has set a new rookie rushing record for his Redskins.
Alfred Morris finished the 2012 season with 1,613 rushing yards putting him in second place for rushing yards behind only the great Adrian Peterson. Not bad for a guy taken in the 6th round of the draft with the 173rd overall pick. The Redskins had an unbelievable 2012 draft. The team finished the season with a 10-6 record winning their last 7 games in a row to claim the division beating the Dallas Cowboys in a must win game.
RGIII threw for exactly 100 yards in the game completing only 9 of the 18 passes he threw. He also rushed for a touchdown and ran for 63 yards with a brace on his knee. It was the 3 rushing touchdown that Alfred Morris ran for the put the nail in the coffin of the Dallas Cowboys…… The Redskins are a team that looks like they can take advantage in the play offs this season.
