Alfred Morris ditched reporters for Chick-fil-A after Mike Shanahan's firing

Alfred Morris can't be stopped (en route to Chick-fil-A)

Jeff Zelevansky

We already went over how Mike Shanahan's last day as the Redskins' coach was a paranoia-filled weirdness spectacular featuring the Redskins forcing media away from windows so they couldn't see what was going on outside.

But perhaps the best part is Alfred Morris' passion for Chick-fil-A:

But, Alfred, why the hurry? Surely you could stop to talk to the media on your way to Chick-fil-A, right?

No, Alfred was being wise:

Another Shanahan draft pick, running back Alfred Morris, also declined to speak Monday morning, saying he needed to leave immediately if he was to make it to Chick-fil-A before it stopped serving breakfast.

This is right up there with Rob Ryan's YOLO moment when he quit the Rams and immediately went to McDonald's without saying anything to anybody. Of course, it's possible Morris was really just using fast food as an excuse to ditch an awkward conversation about his coach getting axed, but we prefer to believe in his jones.
