I would even like to see Foster and Tate lined up in the backfield in a split formation. That would be a nice wrinkle.
Now for a reason we won't win.
If Gary Kubiak thinks this is an important game, a must win he's not going to rotate those guys like he should. He's going to stick with Foster. You'd think that should be a good plan. You'd think that ought to get us a win. & it might. But I think there is so much variety in the way those three guys run, that it helps us to mix it up. Foster & Tate at the least. But Forsett should also be part of the plan. Gary should go into the game thinking we're going to run it 45 times & split the carries accordingly.
Now, I know it's not a must win. You know it's not a must win. But we don't know what Kubiak thinks.
