I would even like to see Foster and Tate lined up in the backfield in a split formation. That would be a nice wrinkle.

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.
No telling how Gary looks at this game. I think he'd like to be 1-0 this coming week just like seemingly every week. I think that keeping Foster in there if he's "on" and giving him the lion's share of the carries in this game is not a bad idea necessarily. It's going to be cold, most likely wet. The first guy who can demonstrate that he is capable of running effectively in that I think you run with and don't look back.
