Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

So you think 1 RB will carry the whole load.

Morris has been working a lot of his blocking skills (and catching). The general consensus is that he's going pretty good with it. I'm thinking we'll be seeing some Morris & Helu, Morris & Thompson, Morris & Young lineups. We say plenty of Morris & Young last year and Young had a few reception plays/TDs. Young's an awesome blocker. Not hating on Royster, just didn't feel like adding him in yet...did look pretty good last week.

With RG3 and any of the above combos, that will be a complete nightmare for defenses. That's three misdirection decoys for a passing play, or two misdirection decoys for a backfield pass or run play. Would split up defenders wonderfully :twisted:

I'm done being Kyle now. Carry on...
