Also I love Alfred Morris but I know Shannahan and his history. You probably wont remember who Alfred Morris was in 3 years.
95-98- Rode Terrell Davis
99- Davis injured 4 games in, rides Olandis Gary
00- Davis injured 5 games in, rides Mike Anderson
01- Davis injured 8 games in (still led team in rushing), rides Anderson
So until this point, Shannahan is going to ride TD from at least 95-01, maybe longer if the dude doesn't blow out his knees.
02- Davis retires, rides Portis (rookie)
04- Portis traded for Champ Bailey, Rueben Droughns runs for 1,200 (start of rotating RBs)
Portis goes for 1,500+ his first two seasons and most certainly would have been Shannahan's bell cow if he stayed.
05- Mike Anderson
06- Tatum Bell,
07- Selvin Young, Travis Henry
08- Hillis, Pittman
Point is, Shannahan rides his
RBs. Morris is a Shannahan RB. For a 5 year stretch, he was forced to rotate a bunch of different guys. His RB juggling is a perpetuated myth.
