Keys got a QB that can air it while Clayton has a run first, run second, and run some more coach. If Clayton had a decent qb and had as many attempts as Key, Clayton would have better stats.
Actually, Gruden is known for a pretty balanced offensive scheme. He certainly likes to have his QBs pass it - at least thats whats happened in the past. This is the first time Ive seen a Gruden RB get so many actual handoffs. Chances are it will gradually return to being a balanced offense.
Also - I think people need to be very careful in saying Clayton is a more talented WR than Keyshawn. Key is extremely talented - it may not always show up in the boxscore.
With Carnell Williams foot acting up, I think this is the week where Griese and Clayton have a good game. Detroit gave up 29 passing touchdowns last year. I think Gruden saying he has no intention of cutting Williams' workload after a 37 carry game last week is a smoke screen. Remember, Gruden's offense is all about passing. His ego isn't going to let Williams carry the offense all season.
