Alfred 3rd in NFL in rushing! Check out this chart from Yahoo;

NFL - Statistics by Category - Yahoo! Sports

Nice to see ZERO fumbles on his line, something very few can say at this point and VERY impressive for a NFL rookie, Go Alfred!

Did we really expect anything less. If he got his shot it was going to be over!

And look at him now… GO OWLS, GO SKINS & GO MORRIS!!!

His 2nd half stats dropped beause, like the announcers said they would, the Skins went AWAY from what was working to get RGIII more involved in the Skins O in the 2nd half and it BLEW UP IN THEIR FACES BIG TIME!

RGIII gets hurt and Cousins throws 2 bad late pics while Alfred got very few carries. They controlled the tempo of the game vs. the Falcons in the 1st half and got away from that. The D got tired and then got run over and around for 17 4th qtr. points vs. a now 5-0 Falcons team.

They looked smart in the 1st half and should have been up 10-7 but a missed easy FG changed their thinking. One of my favotite expressions is "If you are successful and change you are stupid!".

RGIII will be a better, and importantly, a healthier QB IF they use a team concept on O, not a RGIII concept. Ask the Eagles about the Vick centered approach. It can be spectacular at time BUT SUCK at times as well!

Winning would make it a little better for them too!
#3 RB and a couple 100 yd games don't mean as much with a L next to them.

I love the comments by Alfred Morris in this article. Shows what kind of team player he is.

Nice video, now Shanahan needs to keep Alfred in on 3rd downs (as he says Alfred is  an everydown back) and let him block or chip and release for another receiving option or draw/running play action hitting the gaps left by the pass rush.
Now they take him out and bring in another back and the D KNOWS it is a pass play and go all out with pass pressure with no other option but a pass to defend!
mr Morris is tearing it up, now the Sknis need some wins to get him more attention - although he is looking at potential NFC Rookie of the Year and the Pro Bowl! Almost halfway to a thou already, WOW!
