    It won't happen with today's spread offenses. But I would love to see the old fashioned tossed Power Sweep with Evans and Dillon blocking out front for Maroney around Grahams side. Not a huge gainer...but I really miss that play and it's not often teams today have the peices to pull it off like they did back in the FB / HB / TB days.

    when it was going well teams then converted it to a surprise screen pass which could gain 20-40 yards a try. I love football new and old...but sometimes I wish I could see these modern athletes running some of those old fashioned plays.

    Then we had 180 lb backs blocking for a 200 lb back around a 200 lb TE.
    Now it would be like a bulldozer crashing into a V-shaped dump truck plow.

    I'm all for Dillon and Maroney in the backfield at the same time. They really have got to try it at some point.
