There is no denying that Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris had a breakout season in his rookie year. The good news is the 24-year-old is certainly not satisfied as he is determined to dominate once again in 2013.
Morris believes that having the experience of playing in all 16 games during the regular season will help him get off to an even faster start during the upcoming season. He admitted that at times he felt a bit out of place on the gridiron. However, knowing what to expect in every game will certainly help him build off his top-notch performance.
The good news is Morris will be flat out disappointed if he underperforms as he fully expects to outdo himself, regardless if quarterback Robert Griffin III is ready to go at the beginning of the season.
“I don’t have the sense that I made it, even though I did make it. Last year is in the past, that doesn’t mean anything anymore,” Morris said, according to CBSSports.com. “Now it’s, what are you going to do this next year? How are you going to improve off last year? Are you going to have a slump? Are you going to get that complacency and lose it? No, I hold myself to a high standard, and I know I’d be disappointed in myself if something like that happens.”
Morris rushed for 1,613 yards and 13 touchdowns on 335 carries during the regular season. He also hauled in 11 receptions for 77 yards. He was effective in Washington’s playoff loss in which he rushed 16 times for a game-high 80 yards.
