Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

Since the coaches want to get the offense into the "pistol" formation, I would like to see the Maryland I formation used also on running plays. But I've never seen a play in the NFL in which there are 3 running backs in the backfield behind the QB. Still, I think it would be an interesting wrinkle since the pistol formation has been used so much this season.

No doubt,Morris has got the power to pick up the first going straight up the middle but pitching it out gives the def too much of a chance to stop it
Also hated the other short yardage call with Qb sneak,I don't think that will ever be a good call with RG 3,he's too lean,doesn't have the body to move the pile in that situation

Sometimes you have to go against your tendencies. Or perhaps there was something on film the coaches thought they could exploit. I know, it's easier to just blast a play in hindsight when it doesn't work.
It is of course, but you would think after it didnt work 1 or 2 times you wouldnt try it a 3rd or 4th.

I hated that play call. 1. Alfmo doesnt have the speed to get to the edge from a dead stop start 2. At least get Young in the backfield to lead 3. Why pitch to the the short side, your giving the Corner and Safety an advantage.

Later in the game there was another pitch sweep where Young did lead and it went to the long side of the field and it went for decent 8-9 yard gain. That was the right adjustment by Kyle.

Despite Shanahan's stellar record in finding and developing RB's, players like Morris don't grow on trees. Adding to that, we don't have a proven back behind him. No, he won't be traded but Shanny will add some more RB bodies to help him next season.

Also, I strongly agree with those who think we need to add an explosive third down back. RGIII needs more weapons. With a couple more explosive players, our offense could be spectacular.
I wasnt saying it was going to happen. I am saying it wouldnt surprise me if it happened. And to address the bold, Mike does believe that Alfred Morris(s) grows on trees. The 4-7 rounds are where the trees grow.

Alfred Morris not feeling the rookie wall | ProFootballTalk

I think Alfred Morris will be the one to break Eric Dickerson's season rushing record someday(2,105 yards).

Really?
Morris is good but he's not that good.He doesn't have the speed or the moves to accomplish something like that.
If he stays healthy for a full season playing in every game I would guess 1500 yards tops

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

Yeah I don't see Morris being that good either. He just doesn't have the breakaway speed to be able to rip off long runs like Dickerson was able to do quite often.

I agree, a 1500 yard season is probably the ceiling for him. Nothing wrong with that.

Plus you have to consider the yards that RG3 takes away from him.

Yes. If he ain't tired, keep him in there.

Didn't Bruce Allen bring back Keiland Williams?

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

Maybe we can get another RB like Jaamal Berry formerly of Ohio State in the 6th next year to be our 3rd down speed back

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

I can't wait to see Roy Helu next season in this offense. He is a change of pace back and his speed should also be a threat with RGIII behind center. Helu has not hands out the backfield which gives us another option. Royster is okay as a 3rd string back or short yardage back from time to time. AL Mo runs behind his pads and has great vision which you can not teach to a RB. Great draft pick by Shanny and staff.

Whatever happen to that should we fire Mike Shanahan thread? That was a joke to even suggest that. HTTR
