Good morning, Redskins fans! I think we can all agree that we’ve been waiting to say this for a long, long time now: it’s finally Opening Day, 2012.
The Redskins open up the 2012 slate on the road today as they face off against the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET; noon CT.
There’s lots of sure-bets when looking at today’s game from the Redskins side of things. First off, a rookie — Robert Griffin III — is going to start at quarterback. Secondly, the defensive front seven is back from last season and is looking to lead the team to new heights this year.
But what seems to be on the minds of several people the last couple weeks is: who’s going to start at running back for the Redskins? Will it be one of the second-year guys like Evan Royster or Roy Helu Jr.? Or will the rookie, Alfred Morris, get the starting nod?
Luckily for you, the Redskins Blog is allowing you to step into head coach Mike Shanahan’s shoes this morning and pick which running back you’d start today against the Saints:
CHIME IN: Why did you make that selection at running back? Feel free to explain in the comments below.
