It’s not a new trend, but a continuing one, that NFL teams are relying less on the concept of a featured running back, many opting for specialization and backfields-by-committee in today’s NFL. The trend is also showing up among Super Bowl winners.

The running game has been anemic in Mike Shanahan’s first season in Washington.
The Redskins’ game against the Jets on Friday night was intended to be the “showcase” game for veteran Willie Parker, his opportunity to star and get more involved in the backfield competition with Clinton Portis and Larry Johnson.
One of the preseason rumors surrounding the Redskins’ backfield competition is that RB Willie Parker could be in danger of not making the final roster. The latest is that fellow veteran Larry Johnson might be in the same position.

Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan says Clinton Portis will be the starting running back when training camp opens.
I’m avoiding the Redskins backfield on fantasy draft day. Even Clinton Portis.
Brian Westbrook is expected to visit the Redskins, which could provide yet another source of motivation for an already committed Clinton Portis.

The NFL in April has more bluffing than the main event table in the World Series of Poker. Teams generally don’t want to tip their hand too early. So in the wake of reports that St. Louis was interested in Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford, GM Billy Devany went into Phil Hellmuth mode.
