Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III stole the headlines in their opening day win against New Orleans, over shadowing another first year player's impressive performance that shares the same back field.
"Who dat? We that! Hail to the Redskins!" Morris posted on Twitter hours after his first professional game.
While many experts debated whether Griffin III would have a big day against the vaunted Saints defense, Morris was an after thought.
In fact, Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan did not announce Morris as the starting running back until just one day prior to kickoff. He surprisingly went with Morris over second year backs Evan Royster and Roy Helu.
Shanahan is known for a running back by community approach, but he told reporters the majority of carries would go to Morris. Shanahan stuck by his word. Royster and Helu combined for just four rushes and 12 yards.
"Right now (Morris) is our starting running back," Shanahan told Grant Paulsen on 106.7 THE Fan in DC on Monday.
