Most of you have probably heard about how Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris gets around by now. Despite earning an NFL salary, Morris still drives the same 1991 Mazda sedan that he bought during his junior year of college at FAU. Morris loves the car and said he is never getting rid of it even if he buys a new one, but the old beater nearly made him miss a recent team meeting.
According to D.C. Sports Bog’s Sarah Kogod, Morris’ car — which he has named “Bentley” — would not start when the Redskins returned home from their trip to Dallas earlier this week. As a result, he had to ask one of the women who works in the apartment complex where he lives for a ride to Redskins Park.
“When I got back from Dallas, she wouldn’t start,” Morris said. “I think she was mad at me for leaving her for so long.”
Morris successfully jump-started Bentley when he returned home later that night, but the winters of Washington, D.C. are a lot harsher than those of Florida. As a result, the Re...

Washington WR Pierre Garcon mentioned that he doesn’t expect his troublesome foot to keep him out of any of the team’s remaining games this season.
“I think I’m going to make it through the whole season,” Garcon said, via Chris Russell. “I’ve been dealing with the pain for so long, it’s only getting numb, used to it.”
Garcon is coming off of a very productive...
HEAD OF THE CLASS
C Will Montgomery. Although RG3, Alfred Morris and Pierre Garcon got all the attention, steady Will Montgomery was the best player on the Redskins offense in week 12. Montgomery has been quietly fantastic all season, until the 31-6 win over Philadelphia, where he had easily the weakest game of his season. He bouned back nicely, though, on Thanksgiving...
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told the media today that LT Trent Williams and ILB London Fletcher were both limited in practice. The troubling part of Shanahan's statement was that he said both had 'significant' injuries but they would 'keep their fingers crossed' for Monday night. Apparently, Williams is suffering from a bruised thigh and Fletcher from...

“You can definitely sense it. Late in the game against the Cowboys, [linebacker] London [Fletcher] came up and talked to me during the game, which he usually never talks to me during the game. I think he’s in his own world as well. You can feel the excitement they have about what we have brewing here. You want to do it for them. When I was in college, I wanted to do it for the...
“In this league, you’ve got to prove it. We haven’t proved it. Even though We’ve beaten them two out of the last three times, you still got to prove it. You’ve got to prove it. Even though we’ve matched up well against them, we haven’t matched up against other teams in this league. I can’t argue with him right now. They won the last one, and they’ve got two Super...
Robert Griffin III is one of the most dynamic players to enter the NFL in the last decade, or perhaps, longer. He is on pace to set several rookie records. RGIII is just 62 yards away from setting the NFL rushing record for an NFL quarterback, now held by Cam Newton, from 2010. Where does RGIII stand in passing and rushing? Here you go . . .
Here we go again. It hasn’t even been a full week since jeweler offered to refund money on sales to customers if Auburn was shutout by Alabama, and now we have a car salesman in Washington, DC offering a similar to deal to patrons if the Washington Redskins are able to shutout the New York [...]
