Like Roh said, we already have them on the roster. And, as I mentioned above, we should have no problem averaging 4+ yds a carry with ANYONE considering we're going to see so few defenses playing 8 in the box. It should be like New England's offense last year. Teams were so scared of getting beat by all their weapons in the passing game that they simply ran the ball down opponent's throats with scrubs at RB.

Moreno and McGahee both had success facing stacked boxes. I can't wait to see what they'll do this year with the primary focus being on defenses stopping the pass.
