Robert Griffin III
With every performance, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is proving worth the mega-hype he has been receiving. However, even though he's on pace to become the first NFL quarterback to run for 1,000 yards, Griffin isn't Washington's top rusher or even its No. 1 rookie on the ground. Those distinctions belong to running back Alfred Morris, the 173rd overall selection in April's draft, who ranks behind only NFL veterans Marshawn Lynch, Jammal Charles, LeSean McCoy and Arian Foster with 376 rushing yards. And only Foster has more touchdowns than Morris' four. Morris is on pace for 1,504 yards, which would leave him just four shy of Clinton Portis' rookie record total for a back coached by Mike Shanahan. "(Alfred) can make the first person miss, which a lot of people can’t do in the National Football League," Shanahan said. "He’s extremely tough. He’s very smart. (He has a) no-nonsense type mindset that he’s going to go out t...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told the media today that he believes rookie running back Alfred Morris has a “big-time future” in the NFL.
Yes, Shanahan likens Morris to another RB he’s coached. Won’t say who (wink, wink). Adds of Morris: “I think he’s got a big-time future.”

EASY, LITTLE FELLA
Redskins owner Dan Snyder is profiled in an upcoming magazine piece, and in it, Snyder's odd behavior during post-game antics after losses are chronicled.
Washington Redskins owner has been through his share of downs during his tenure, most due to his mishaps as owner of the proud franchise. If this particular excerpt from an interview he did is true, I am beyond shock that Snyder never ended up on an episode of the biggest loser. USA Today is reporting that during a recent interview that Snyder did for ESPN The Magazine, Snyder was...
Billy Cundiff knew his job was on the line. At least he had a sense of humor about it.
In a year in which NFL kickers have been making field goals with record accuracy, Cundiff missed three in a tight game. He knew he would get one more chance as he watched Robert Griffin III drive the Washington Redskins down the field, trailing by one.
''I was joking with a guy on the...

The Redskins will host the Falcons at 1:00 PM on Sunday and look to hand Atlanta their first loss on the season. Redskins Nation knows that the key match-up of this game is going to be Matt Ryan and the explosive Falcon offense vs. the Redskins defense, and in particular the secondary.
There is little doubt that Atlanta is going to put points on the board so more than likely,...
We've seen the fourth-quarter comeback. We've seen the Barney socks.
We've heard about the studiousness and the leadership. We've heard the disarming jokes.
Where does one stop and the other start? For Robert Griffin III, it's a well-defined line.

In a fairly bizarre 2012 for fantasy sports, Nick theorizes the Mayan prophecies of 2012 may be coming true. In a year where Chris Johnson can’t do anything then goes off against a league-best run D, the Saints are 0-4, and the Redskins feature a top-tier RB in Alfred Morris, the Mayans are laughing at us.
For this installment of the Razzball Fantasy Football Podcast, Nick and...
