I've went back and looked at the stats while Gruden was the offensive coordinator in Cincinnati and the results will be a shock to most. In the three years he was calling plays he ran the ball an average of 44% of the time. In 2011 he ran the ball 455 times out of 990 plays which is around 44%, in 2012 he called 430 out

baseball swing in 2014.
Now if that isn't balance I don't know what is. I believe we will see even more balance with this offense since Alfred Morris gets stronger the more carries he receives. When the running game gets going it forces the defense to bring a eight man down in the box to try to make it harder to run.
The problem with that now is that the addition of DeSean Jackson and the NFL receptions leader from 2013 Pierre Garcon, you can not leave either one of those guys one on one on the outside. I'm very anxious to see how defenses will try to defend this potentially potent offense. For the first time in a long time the Redskins offense can dictate to the defense instead of vice versa. That is as long as they don't fall behind early an have to play catch up and are forced to abandon the run like many times in 2013. With a Pro Bowl running back like Alfred Morris in the backfield, I'm sure Jay Gruden will have no problem calling run plays and have play calling balance.
