I really think the game will come down to which defense can stop Alfred Morris and Marshawn Lynch. Do not overlook the success Shanahan has had with RB over the years. I still remember Roy Helu gashed Hawks defense, specifically Kam Chancellor. How much has the defense improved from the last time Hawks met Redskins offense? Hawks defense may be gashed. Fans might be a little overconfident at how good this defense is against Redskins running game. Redskins rush defense is 5th in the league, which is better than hawks rush defense (10th). I believe they were one of the few teams to slow down Adrian Peterson (79 yards) when they played.

The Skins run D stat is a little skewed since teams have been able to pass all over us. But they have played well against some decent backs. They also let Ray Rice have a pretty big day against them so it's not impossible that they could be run on.

their rush defense isn't that great, it gave up 4.2 yards a carry and only ranked so high because there was no need to run on them since their pass defense was awful

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

From what very little I seen of Morris, he reminds me of our Robert Turbin.
Marshawn runs way harder so I don't see why people compare Lynch and Morris. This has nothing to do with OP's title. Other forums I visited compared them. Maybe it's just me.

Why would we be able to stop Frank Gore, CJ Spiller but not Alfred Morris?

The same reason you didnt stop Frank Gore when they actually tried to run, AP almost rolled you for 200, and Miami ran all over you as well?

Everyone bagging on Morris is daft. Dude can ball. He runs low and tough. He reads cutback lanes better than Marshawn. It isn't a crime to admit they have really good players.

It will be up to the Linebackers and Kam Chancellor to stop Morris once he blows past the D-line, which is something he makes look easy.

We'll have Brandon Browner back. So with the Browner/Sherman tandem, you can bet the Skins will run the ball a lot to open up the passing game for RG3.

I think the Seahawks can stuff up any running game in the league. It usually takes them a quarter to figure out their plan in stopping the run, but once they do, they have it under control. With that being said, this game is going to come down to how well Russell Wilson can take advantage of the Skins dreadful passing defense.

Having Browner back is key. It allows us to let our corners cover man, and use more of the defense to stop the run. We can "sell out" against the run without as much degradation to the passing game as otherwise might be the case. And we're going to need to, because Morris is a solid running back. He has a chance to be not nearly as effective when he's almost the only threat to run with RGIII slowed a bit. Sure, the Cowboys couldn't stop him, but the Cowboys couldn't stop a cat getting out of a wet paper bag. I'm surprised they were even in it so late, as horrible as they were. Of course, squeaking wins out against the dying Iggles and Panthers earlier in the season helped.

Have you seen teams play man against the Redskins this year?

Morris is a rising star who is an amazing young talent. The 'skins have one of the best MLBs in the game. Their young QB is a legit talent, they also have some very fast WRs.

It is arrogant for their fans to think we will get rolled by them and equally as arrogant to think we have better players at every position than them. Lets not get overconfident here, they have a very good football team.

However we are better than them on D statistically at any rate, but stats are often taken away by home field advantage. I like our physicality more than theirs but I'm a homer.

This game will be a challenge, a good close physical game. The better team on the day will get the W but both teams are looking at bright futures and will see each other again.

From what you just said there, its obvious you havne't seen much of Morris LOL. Morris runs just as hard as Lynch. Morris is 3rd in the NFL in yards after contact, right behind Lynch and Peterson.

Like Marshawn, Alfred Morris is a load to bring down, and he always falls forward. Also Like Lynch, Morris isn't very fast, but he's got quick feet, is patient, and makes good cuts. If you were to compare Morris to any current NFL running back, it would be Marshawn Lynch.


Watch this 3 minute highlights video of Alfred Morris. I guarantee you that you'll be impressed.

I'm excited to see Morris play after all this hype, haven't seen him yet (Or RGIII either). Don't remember the last time I saw a Redskins game, probably the last time we played them I imagine.

Lol Morris has more attempts, more yards and more TD's. I've always like Marshawn Lynch, but Morris is better.

They are similiar in the fact that both our teams rely on them to set up the rest of our offense.

You hand the ball off to [enter running back name]
again
again
Fake and QB keep
hand ball off
PA pass gashes defense
hand off
rinse repeat.

They are the staple of our offenses. They can both break the long run (lynch is better at it) and power through arm tackles.

Both teams are very lucky to have said men on their rosters.

Morris has 20 attempts more, for an extra 20 yards

Bearing in mind we pulled Marshawn half way through the games v Buffallo and Arizona. I wouldnt exactly say that screams better to me. It screams to me he had more attempts for very little extra gain, and marshawn effectivley played 1 game less....We could have let marshawn pick up another 100 yards and cTouple of TD's in those games easily.

I aint saying marshawn is much better, but at this moment id take Marshawn over morris

ok so he's better in your opinion? Lynch is still pretty damn good, so what's your point...chances of us stopping him is greater than you stopping lynch, because your defense is mediocre.. morris doesn't concern me near as much as Garcon and Moss... damn good back but we've faced several backs just as good.

and had you put up a video with a team like SF or Denver, or STL who actually have good D's i'd be a little more impressed.

Morris has fewer yards per carry than Lynch and 1 more total TD. Lynch also has tripled Morris is receiving yards.

See? Anyone can cherry pick stats, so just stop it.

I haven't watched a single Redskin game but it isn't hard to see why Alfred Morris gained so many yards after watching that video. He is a fantastic running back. That said I don't think his running style is similar to Marshawn at all even though they both have tremendous yards after touch(as does Adrian Peterson and he has a very different style as well). Although this defense has had some trouble with good running backs I don't think Alfred Morris is the type of super fast edge runner that causes us problems. I know Gore gashed us for some big runs straight up the gut but San Frans offensive line is elite to all time elite. Normally Seattle owns runners who are the bigger bruiser types. I have no doubt that he will have some success but I highly doubt you will be seeing him gash us for 120+.

Who cares who is better? It's about who is better on Sunday. Obviously Hawks fans are gonna' say Lynch, and Deadskins fans are gonna' say Morris. BOTH guys are damn good, and it should be a tight game, hard hitting game w/a LOT of running attempts.

When Morris can pull off a Beastquake then we'll talk about who is better.

Shanahan has been amazing at creating "great" running backs. A lot of those running backs were nothing when they left town to play for other teams.

Alfred Morris may be great, but he may also be what some of those other backs were. Coming in and saying he is better than an established player like Marshawn is a little crazy especially when Marshawn has him beat in YPC.

But who cares, the debate between running backs won't get solved Saturday, because a team or a player can have off days. What will get settled is which team moves on in the playoffs.

CJ Spiller ran for over 100 yards against us, I don't know if that's necessarily considered stopping him.

from what i've seen the quick cutting backs are the ones that give us trouble.... Gore, AP, Spiller / the backs we usually have success with is the big bruisers.. stephen Jackson for instance.. we don't miss a lot of tackles at any level... if we wrap up well, morris will have a tough day..

saying that, he's a great runner, and i can see him having success... the video is great, but non of those teams including AtL and Baltimore have anything close to the defense we'll put on the field...

Redskins are 2-2 vs current playoff teams.

Seahawks are 4-1. That's what matters more than yards a game IMO.

This matters too...

Washington PPG 27.3 Against 24.3 +3

Seattle PPG 25.8 Against 15.3 +10.5

The biggest difference I foresee in the game is team speed on defense.

The Hawks linebackers and safeties close very fast, leading to more 3rd and intermediates rather than 3rd and shorts, which leads to more Redskins punts and therefore more scoring drive opportunities for the Hawks.

Also, I believe that the Hawks will control field position with their special teams, which will lead to shorter fields for the Hawks offense.

Ha ha!! Thanks. I guess I am too excited for the playoffs to start on Saturday. Getting tired of the College stuff. I don't mind College (Husky fan), but I've always been way more of a NFL fan.

Please Morris had 20 more carries and ONLY 23 more yards than Lynch. Lynch is averaging 5.0 yards/carry. Morris is at 4.8.

So to say that Morris is better is ridiculous. Both players have had tremendous years. If Seattle doesn't curbstomp 3 opponents thus taking Lynch out of the game and letting our rookie RB get a ton of carries (Turbin got 100 yards against AZ) than Lynch would easily have surpassed Morris' total.

Admit it skins fan, you guys coat Morris up in hot butter before the game right?

He is nowhere near as explosive as Lynch, but for some reason nobody can tackle him. Pretty impressive rookie and stopping him has to be Seattles number one priority even before stopping RGIII

And his salary cap numbers and age impact the game this Sunday how exactly? Do they figure in total cost per position and assign points on what a bargain a player is and then weigh the scores differently based on those figures? I didn't think so. All that matters is what happens on the scoreboard.

Congrats on getting the better bargain, but this isn't some weird fantasy league where you get bonus points for how you acquired a player. Besides...... you'd lose all of those points for what you gave up to get your QB whose stats are right there with our QB who only cost a 3rd round pick straight up and is making way less money per game. Dollar for dollar, Russell Wilson is a vastly superior QB right? Does it matter? Nope.

Our defense is mediocre? HA, ok, that's a good one. Maybe you haven't heard of future Hall of Famer London Fletcher? Yeah, he's on our team. He's a tackling wizard and a mastermind at destroying opposing teams wills.

If you want to sleep on Morris too, well, have at it. He rolled to 200 yards against Dallas, and he set the record for most rushing yards... IN HIS FIRST YEAR!

Morris. Cheaper, younger. Equal production.


So, basically Morris is 2.5 years younger and cheaper. His equal (nearly equal) production (in one year of play) means he is better according to you.

Take Russell Wilson, he is 1 year and 2 months OLDER (just so you know I get it, he is a little older), but he is a ton cheaper and they are separated by about 2 points of the old Rating system (100.00 to 102.4). So, using your premise then, our QB is better than yours and has stayed more healthy this year which makes him more valuable.

That's why these arguments never work. It's always slanted toward the fan base bias.

ok so he's better in your opinion? Lynch is still pretty damn good, so what's your point...chances of us stopping him is greater than you stopping lynch, because your defense is mediocre.. morris doesn't concern me near as much as Garcon and Moss... damn good back but we've faced several backs just as good.

and had you put up a video with a team like SF or Denver, or STL who actually have good D's i'd be a little more impressed.



Our defense is mediocre? HA, ok, that's a good one. Maybe you haven't heard of future Hall of Famer London Fletcher? Yeah, he's on our team. He's a tackling wizard and a mastermind at destroying opposing teams wills.

If you want to sleep on Morris too, well, have at it. He rolled to 200 yards against Dallas, and he set the record for most rushing yards... IN HIS FIRST YEAR!


London Fletcher a future Hall of Famer?!!! Hahahahahaha. I can't stop laughing. I just spit an entire can of pepsi on my laptop.

London Fletcher has as much of a shot at the hall of fame as I do. His biggest honor was once he was a 2nd team all pro. Sorry... NOT a hall of famer. A guy that piles up lots of tackles on defenses that let everything get to the second level every year? Yes. Hall of famer? Not a chance in heck.

morris is just maybe just a tad 'stouter', but lynch is 1) probably every bit as physical on the field, is 2) more of a threat in the passing game, and has 3) a faster 'top gear'. morris might have better vision.

it could be that lynch is the best-ever back at 'moving the pile'. he sure has a lot of leg strength for his weight.

Please Morris had 20 more carries and ONLY 23 more yards than Lynch. Lynch is averaging 5.0 yards/carry. Morris is at 4.8.

So to say that Morris is better is ridiculous. Both players have had tremendous years. If Seattle doesn't curbstomp 3 opponents thus taking Lynch out of the game and letting our rookie RB get a ton of carries (Turbin got 100 yards against AZ) than Lynch would easily have surpassed Morris' total.


This argument is biased. I can easily say the same thing about RG3. If he hadnt missed 1.5 games, he would have more TD's than RW. But he didnt, end of story, just like Morris had more Carries, Rushing yards, and TD's, end of story. And can we stop using the yards per carry argument. You guys act like the difference was huge. It was .2 yards more. It's like me saying that Lynch fumbles more than Morris...He does, but the differnce is negligble and not really worth mentioning.


Edit: Not saying that Morris is better than Lynch, just saying I dont agree with your argument or reasoning.

actually, i had thought morris had 3 fumbles to lynch's 2. maybe that's just fumbles lost, but not total fumbles.

One of the problems with that arguement is Lynch was taken out of a blowout game, not injured to the point of not able to play.

first of all Dallas Defense is Putread, they were handled easily at the CLink, so try another angle, and as far as London Fletcher, good player old as hell, i'll give you that one, who else you got, Hall, he get's beat as much as he makes a play, who else? josh wilson, he was cut by us, what does that tell you.... sorry, no impressed with your D, stats don't lie my man, don't think you want to see the comparison between our two teams. and i never said we can sleep on morris, he has to be a priority.

actually when we played them, their fans had nothing but good things to say about him, and wished he was still there to have a one two punch with spiller... but they knew he wasn't happy there, but they were glad to see him having success.. do you guys actually do research before you post...

he was taken out of two blowout games, which equals approx 1 full game of playing time... so ya his numbers could have been better, that's a fact.

1) Alfred Morris is a stud. I like thuggish runners and he is thuggish with a little 'ish added n.
2) Alfred Morris is no Lynch. He's a rook, talk to me in 8 years.
3) Stop talking about Ol' Man Fletcher... Seriously, that ship has sailed.
