Good article on the running game

There's a very nice peice in the Post--by Jason La Canfora no less (!!!)--about the changes in the running game. I was especially impressed to learn that Byner has talked a lot with Alex Gibbs--the line coach at Denver for years, and now at Atlanta--about how to properly work the "stretch" play. Byrner sounded totally committed to getting it to work here. Also, they've moved Portis BACK a few steps in the backfield so he hits the line at speed and doesn't have to wait like last year so much. Plus, there's some great Buges quotes--he's also pumped.

THe whole thing helped to put the scrimmage in perspective (it seems to have sent disturbing waves of panic through Redskin fan-land...)--do you remember any running plays at all on Saturday, or at least any with Portis?

Anyway, it's a good read--refreshing from the usually negative (at least as of late) Washington Post.

Great article. I'm really excited about what we may be able to do running the ball this year!
