    Ravens 2008 running game



    Will we ever see a full backfield, 2 halfbacks and a fullback, like the Ravens ran, successfully, in 2008 ?

    One has to wonder why we're not doing that, with Pierce, Rice, and Leach at our exposure.

    Speaking of which, did Rice and Pierce ever line up in the same backfield? I do not believe that I have seen it, have you?

    You also have to wonder why we don't do the gadget plays that threw the defenses off before. No more unbalanced lines, and we haven't used Tyroid Taylor to throw in some options.

    Because, as Antonio Brown will tell you, gadget plays don't work against good teams.

    a creative cordinator would something like this.. rice and pierce in the backfiled split, with leach out as a TE on the line and trips bunch formation.
