Anyone else noticing the RB trend?

So I’m noticing a trend in the Raider backfield. There aren’t many between-the-tackle runners. This year’s 3-headed monster includes a returning Darren McFadden, Taiwan Jones, and new guy Mike Goodson. Now D-Mac’s game has, for the most part, been based on outside running. TJ, based on the 2 games at EWU I watched and what limited times I saw him last season (I know I live in a hick town, but what red-blooded hillbilly would rather watch golf highlights and 3 month old rodeo coverage?) he was of similar style. And thanks to Ninja’s righteous analysis, I’ve learned that Mike Goodson (sorry if this was not your intent, dude) has similar style to TJ and D-Mac. Whatever does this mean? Last year, the offense seemed to have 2 identities. There was the Raider Offense with D-Mac and Marcel Reece, a dynamic that seemed to befuddle certain teams. And then there was Mike Bush, the guy who seemed to be brought in to slow the pace and play it safe. It wouldn’t have been so bad, but when D-Mac went down, our offense seemed to sputter. But with 2 backs cut from the same cloth as the primary one, we won’t have to change styles when D-Mac inevitably goes down. I expect the screen game to increase as our offense will be, to oversimplify it, throw it to (insert name) and let him do the work. I’m not going to complain. We have a nice collection of anklebreakers. And why the eff are my posts all running together? It’s not letting me copy/paste from word onto visual and its really starting to piss me off
