On Monday, the Washington Redskins fired their head coach, Mike Shanahan, after four years on the job following an abysmal 3-13 season.
Shanahan was one of the most expected firings of NFL Black Monday, and now the Redskins will begin their search for a new head man to lead this talented group of players.
Believe me, the talent is there, they proved that with their playoff run last year.
Speaking of the 2012 season, one of the players that broke out during that amazing run was running back Alfred Morris. With Mike Shanahan having a history of working with and developing some great rushers throughout the years, people were anxious to see what that relationship could develop in Washington.
Now, we’ll never get the chance to see what could have happened between the two on the field.
Morris must be heartbroken about that. Not getting the chance to develop his skills under the same man that introduced us to Terrell Davis? Just awful.
Actually, he didn’t seem all that broken up about it at all. If anything today during Shanahan’s press conference, he was more worried about getting his breakfast from Chick-fil-A before they stopped serving.
Brian McNally of the Washington Times tried to catch up with Morris to get his thoughts on what went down Monday, and he was met with this response from the second-year back:
I went up to Alfred Morris by myself and asked him if he could talk. Told me he "needed to catch Chick-fil-A breakfast" Hope he makes it!

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, at least to Alfred Morris. It doesn’t matter if your coach was just fired or not.
