Alfred Morris making #Redskins reminds me that Jamie Morris (4th round, ‘88) set the #NFL record for rushing att. in a game (45) as rookie.

Jamie carried 45 times in this season finale vs. the Bengals, who went to the Super Bowl: http://bit.ly/rCVXwD  #Redskins #NFL

Saturday

Harper’s 40th extra-base hit gives him 1 more than 19-yr-old Griffey Jr. had in ‘89. Next ahead of him: Conigliaro, 47, in ‘64. #Nats #MLB

Zimmermann’s stats since ERA dipped to 2.28 (July 28): 30.1 IP, 21 ER, 6.23 ERA. Should have no bearing, though, on Strasburg issue. #Nats

Sunday

When Chad Cordero had 47 saves for the ‘05 #Nats, he had 37 from Game 43 on. Clippard now has 29 since becoming the closer in Game 43. #MLB

Most saves in the last 120 games of the season (Game 43 on): F.Rodriguez ‘08 46, Smoltz ‘02 44, Thigpen ‘90 42. (Clippard: 29.) #Nats #MLB

Monday

Interesting that Evan Royster wore No. 22 (his new #Redskins number) at #PennState. So did John Cappelletti, PSU’s 1973 Heisman winner.

The 10 remaining #Redskins who predate Shanahan: Moss, Davis, Montgomery, Fletcher, Orakpo, Hall, Golston, Alexander, Wilson, Doughty.

Which is worse, Strasburg being shut down after 170 or so innings or Matt Damon being shut down after 3 Bourne movies? #Nats #MLB

Difference in stroke average this year between #Tiger and Rory — .002. (#McIlroy 68.869, Woods 68.871). #PGATour

Tuesday

Poor Ryan Clark. It’s like he has 2 bye weeks — the real one + the one that’s forced on him when #Steelers play at Denver. #Redskins #NFL

#Redskins sign TE Michael Hoomanawanui to the practice squad. They’re not saying, “Boo,” they’re saying, “Hoo.” #Rams #NFL

Wednesday

The first major mention of my new book about #NFL’s early years, “The National Forgotten League” http://bit.ly/NcwPWa  More to come. #Browns

When the #NFL contributes $30 million to brain injury research it makes you wonder whether 2 clubs didn’t feel like kicking in a million.

The Chien-Ming Wang who went 54-20 with the #Yankees from 05-08 is a figment of the #Nats‘ imagination. And anyway … #MLB

… that Wang had an ERA+ of 117 (worse than 4 of #Nats‘ 5 starters) + a WHIP of 1.293 (worse than all 5 starters). Again: He’s a mirage.

The best 22-year-old QBs in modern #NFL history (#RG3’s age): Big Ben ‘04 (96.1 rating), Marino ‘83 (20 TD passes), … #Redskins

… Newton ‘11 (35 TDs throwing and running), Bledsoe ‘94 (4,555 passing yards), Vick ‘02 (playoff win at Green Bay). #Redskins #NFL

Bledsoe and Vick, by the way, were second-year QBs. The others were rookies like #RG3#Redskins #NFL

Which is the larger age difference — between #RG3 and Brandon Weeden or between Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore? #Redskins #NFL #Browns 

See that play in the red zone Romo just made, scrambling and flipping a TD pass? It’s the kind of play #RG3 can/will make. #Redskins #Baylor

Thursday

London Fletcher made the 1st tackle of his #NFL career vs. the Saints on a KO return in ‘98 opener. Qadry Ismail was the returner. #Redskins

#Tiger and Rory are tearing it up again. They’re starting to get a Nicklaus/Watson vibe. #BMW #PGATour

Dreamed the #Nats played the #Yankees in the World Series, and a sign in the bleachers said: “Our Suzuki is better than your Suzuki.” #MLB

The #Braves have won back-to-back games by 1-0 scores. FYI: That’s happened only 10 other times in the last 30 years. #Nats

In July the #Dodgers got a grand total of 7 hits in beating the #Padres1-0, 1-0. The #Braves managed 11 in their 1-0/1-0 of #Rockies#Nats

You can understand the frustration in the #Cubs dugout. They’re as bad as the #Nats are good. That’s hard to do. #MLB

The Senators had a pitcher named Clevenger. He was a unibrow.  http://bit.ly/P5IRRe  Steve Clevenger deserves to have one eyebrow, too #Nats

Is it just me or does Steve McCatty walk to the mound exactly like Robert Wuhl did in “Bull Durham”? #Nats #Cubs

Friday

#Tiger’s last five rounds: 64, 68, 68, 66, 65. Best stretch of the year. 25 under, at least 3 under every day. #BMW #PGATour

The #Caps just announced that Comcast will televise 70 of their games this season. They left out the word “hypothetically.” #NHL

Re: #Nats + #Os making playoffs. The only times the #Redskins + Baltimore #Colts both made it were ‘71 + ‘76. #Redskins/#Ravens? Never. #NFL
