Reading some of the perspective in here he's almost too good to be true, a talented back that you can really get behind off the field too. Really happy to have him on the team.

Yahoo! also asked Morris about putting on his uniform for the first time.
“Just putting on the burgundy and gold, it’s like, maaan,” he said. “Not only am I in the NFL, but I get to play for my favorite team. I don’t think too many people can say that. And for such a storied franchise, and a team that has probably to me the best fans in the nation. They’re so loyal. I know it sounds kind of cheesy, but it’s definitely the truth.”
Eh, I don’t know. I still say he might be fictional.

I cannot wait to get Roy Helu on the field with the 2012 rookies. Put Helu's speed with RG3's running ability and Morris' downhill running, and to me that is as dynamic as you could want.

I hope Morris plays angry next game. After he fumbled versus the Giants, he ran over that defense. Can't help but love the way The Butler plays.

The dude really is a awsome person! I was at a navy game and I saw him and said Alfred? I had my RG3 Baylor jersey he came up 4 rows because he was watching and sat with us for a while and man he was one of the coolest people I've ever met regardless of anything! Just humble and took pics and joked. Class act we struck gold on charecter this draft

I agree Jeezy. He seems awesome, which is why I posted that article of him wearing that shirt the other day.

I also agree with Footy29. We've missed Helu this year and a receiver out of the backfield and a speed back who can be a change of pace to Morris.

I too can't wait to get him back next year and have that combo together.

Awesome!

The only athletes I've hung with are Milan Michalek and Nick Foligno, and I'm not crazy about hockey like I am about football.

That is awesome man! So cool you just chilled with him for a while! He seems like he really has his head together, hard-working and genuine.
Which is why I believe it when he says he he is playing for his favorite team. But I thought I read that somewhere before too?..

Not only is he a POWERFUL back like we haven't had for ages but when you add the kind of person that he is then it is an honor to see him playing for US representing our team

Morris is a back that really makes the most of his situation. Mike just needs to get him a solid backup so that he can last with Griffin because royster aint cutting it.

Royster is fine, he just doesn't get the carries. Helu is fine also, he just is injured.

When Royster got Morris type carries last year he put up similar yards.

Royster also hasn't fumbled in two years or 73 carries.

These Redskins rookies sure are a modest bunch. See Alfred Morris’ T-shirt in the postgame locker room:

Ive read alot of stuff on Morris being a down to earth quality guy.

Dont know if posted here. But after the Dallas game he got home and the next day his 91 Mazda or whatever it is wouldnt start. So he was running around his apartment complex asking people to take him to Redskins Park.

He said he might get other cars in the future. But he loves his old car and could never get rid of it.
