Alfred “Chief Knockahoma” Morris, though an underdog, was in contention EA Sports’ Madden NFL 15 cover. Unfortunately for the Redskins prodigy, Morris was ranked a 7 seed in the EA Sports bracket, and was subsequently ousted by the 2nd seeded Indianapolis Colt, Andrew Luck.
Although Chief Knockahoma’s mid-celebratory home run swing would have been a quintessential cover for the video game, some solace has to be taken in the fact that the Shanahan-drafted sixth round pick has risen to the upper echelon of league leaders.
With the nomination selection of one of the NFL’s sweet sixteen, Morris has solidified himself as a cornerstone of the future of the franchise, as well as a prominent face of the NFL, comparable to such likenesses as Richard Sherman, Cam Newton, LeSean McCoy, A.J. Green, and Colin Kaepernick.
