Boo...Alfred Morris Wins Rookie of The Week
I know America votes for the winners but Wilson definitely got hosed. They literally give this award to Redskins pretty much every other week.
Alfred Morris 23 carries for 123 yards, 1TD.
David Wilson 13 carries 100 yards, 2TD's with 1KR TD (327) all purpose yards.
If anything, I would have givin it to Foles over Morris for sure.
Still think Wilson should have won. He flat out outplayed Morris. Shame right there.
Alfred is ROY after RGIII and Andrew Luck, but Wilson deserved to be rookie of the week. 123 yards and 1 TD don't compare 327 all purpose yards and 3 TDs. Wilson deserved it, and I'm not being a homer.
C'mon...Morris benefits greatly from this pistol scheme. Any RB would do that great with a QB that is athletically gifted like RG3. What Wilson did was simply outstanding.
