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...

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?


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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


saying a MUCH improved Seahawk team cannot stop morris is daft, AP ran 200 on everyone, thats what the Vikes do, they hand the ball to AP, why wouldn't they but the Hawks d is a better D than when they first played the niners and the Vikes weeks 7 and 9, anyone should be able to see that..

the real question isn't who the Seahawks have stopped its more of who can the Skinnies stop when they absolutely have to?

CJ Spiller got his hunnerd yards ginst the hawks week 15 gaining 103 yards, the issue isn't how many yards a player gains its how many yards they gain when they are absolutely needed..

case in point against the Bills Rdub rushed for 92 yards week 15 BUT the stat that really counts as the back breaker are the 3 rushing TDs by Wilson in the first half...

GETTING YOUR YARDS WHEN IT COUNTS!!!

that little 3 TD rushing stat is HUGE when you compare it to Seattle's red zone performance early on mid season, it also equates to the Seahawks adding more tools to the toolbox since the first half of the season..

one could literally see this team improving week after week on both sides of the ball going form a mediocre team to a serious powerhouse to be reckoned with..

are the Skinnies much improved?

in the win/loss they are but I'm going to say not too much performance wise and without morris and RG they are cellar dwellers, but having a quarterback that has to run head first is dangerous as the Redskins proved with RG on the cot, sure the Skins are on a 7 game streak vs the Hawks 5 game streak but lets have a look at the opponents...

Skins.... eagles twice, cowboys twice, browns once and then the flailing giants once, the only REAL team they played was the ravens once and if my memory serves me it was a very close game that could have went the other way?

the Hawks on the other hand completely dismantled their powerhouse opponent in the niners on week 16, not even close..

I'm not trying to take anything away from the Skins other than their questionable schedule and apparent weak knee'd quarterback, their offensive style is good enough to handle most teams but remember the Hawks have a coach well versed in the read-option-spread so if the skins go into the game with lack of design they could be in for a long day?

my guess is Wilson and the Hawks will be ready to play, HARD! prepared, pumped and primed regardless of what anyone has to say, this team has come a long ways and they know what they're made of and they earned everything!

both teams deserve the same respect

GO HAWKS!!!

Maybe Marshawn wasn't the team cancer? He's been a damn saint and nothing but a hard worker and team player here, while Buffalo has continued to be a damn joke. C'mon man, crap is weak.

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...


I did do research. It's called my best friend. He speciafically mentioned hit doing a hit and run and after that people in Buffalo didnt look on him to kindly. Thats what he told me. I dont care cause Im not a Bills fan. If he's been better in Seattle, thats great.

Take it up with Bills fans, man. Im just telling you what my friend told me. I think it's relevant being that he is a Bills fan and Lynch played for the Bills.

I'm gonna defends rdskns4eva and call the homer card on you SundayNiteBlackout. He was guilty of misdemeanor weapons charges and such? That's pretty bad IMO, and I think Pete cleaned up his act here, not Marshawn. He was a team cancer there, and luckily PC fixed him. Then the hit and run, but I'm not gonna go there because I'm not well informed on the situation.

I love how you like to defend our players, but sometimes we view things with the rose colored glasses. He isn't a team cancer here, but it sounds like he was quite the cancer there. I think the whole rest of the league would agree with that statement, IMO.

Ok. So you let best friend's bias formulate the basis for your research.

Makes sense.

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


THey've both fumbled 4 times. Morris has more carries than Lynch so on average he fumbles less. But the difference is negligable, just like the yards per carry difference.

I just feel it is unwarranted hate from Bills fans on Lynch. I can tell you one thing, I was all to happy to take Lynch for a 4th round pick. So happy in fact that it felt like a lottery winning. Thanks for being ungrateful Bills!

EDIT: And Hawksfan, do you think Steelers fans want Big Ben out of Shitsburgh because he has been accused of rape multiple times? If you produce you produce, and Lynch produced.

But hey, maybe he just grew older and wiser when he got here. Who knows.

And DUI's are still DUI's. It kills people dude. Anything that qualifies as a DUI is a big violation of the law.... toe the line or not. Someone could've died......

I still think he's fine though, he seems to be a hard worker who's been nothing but good since he became a Hawk.

I guess a hit and run would do that. Just kidding. But seriously, I think he knows more about the Bills than you, but again, we're talking about two different time lines here. Lynch with the Bills and Lynch with the Hawks.

Seriously? Have you ever drank 2 beers before? If so, did you feel like you couldn't operate a motor vehicle? Quit playing devil's advocate, because in this case it seems pretty stupid.

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. .


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 can't lie I was impressed. The run for a 1st at 1:43 was sick!

Yes really. I have never in my life drank 2 alcoholic beverages and thought to myself "self, you need a taxi."

Seriously. If you really want to play that game you might just be a 90 pound woman. Not a 220 pound running back.

And just to clear this up, I DO NOT advocate drunk driving. I have lost friends on both sides of the coin on that one, with one being only a couple months ago.

Both are good runners, but give me the guy that has been there before. As others have said, I'd rather our D be facing a power back than a shifty one, as it plays better to our strengths on D. (And that isn't taking anything away from Morris, who has had a great year)

That said, all this "who is better" nonsense is actually pretty funny to read. Skins fans, you like your guy, and we are more than content with our guy.

The Hawks lead the entire NFL in points given up. I don't care if the guy gets 250 yards, as long as we come out on top on the scoreboard. WAY too much talk on this crap.
