Subtle Running Back Shuffle

So one thing that has kind of slipped under the radar is the benching of Evan Royster.

It's a subtle move, but Shanahan has benched Royster as the 3rd down back in favor of Morris, making Morris the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd down back.

Is this temporary? Will Keiland Wiliams eventually assume the 3rd down back role?

I don't know.

But I'm not sure how I feel about this move, on the one hand kudos to Mr. Morris for improving enough as a pass blocker that the staff trusts him on 3rd downs. But at the same time, I'm worried that we're going to wear Morris out.

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

WHy has Royster regressed? I think that's the bigger issue here.

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

Maybe Ryan Grant comes back?

I've never been a fan of Royster. Looks slow in comparison to Morris.

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

Royster really looked solid last year, so I'm somewhat disappointed it appears he has regressed. I kinda hope he earns the 3rd down role back, because I share similar concerns about wearing down Morris. I love Morris' style, but bangers like him never have long careers.

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

Royster and Helu were solid last year, injuries got the best them. I think Royster is the type of player you need to give to at least 15 times to get him going.

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

Gotta think its more to do with Royster's blocking. He missed 2 huge blocks in the Carolina game...the forth and goal he got dominated trying to block for RG3 by a small corner getting pushed back and then he whiff on a 3rd down blitz pick up which RG3 took a shot.

If you cant block as a 3rd down back...thats half your value. Miss Tortis ability in that department.

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

I guess my bigger point is going into training camp it was Hightower, Helu, Royster and Morris.

Now it's just Morris? I understand there were injuries, but something doesn't add up

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

Royster is bad and slow. Plus RG3 is really our second RB

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

We can probably count on Shanny drafting another late round RB next year.

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

SS is right. There is something un-Shanny-like going on here. There is no sense of a backfield committee at all.

Re: Subtle Running Back Shuffle

Morris is the man but it'd be nice to have a Speedster at Backup

Yeah it would be nice to have a guy to dump it off to that could do some damage.
