Seahawks double up in the backfield with Julius Jones and Maurice Morris

KIRKLAND — When Julius Jones came to Seattle, the assumption was that the Seahawks signed him to be Shaun Alexander's successor.
Well, that was half-right.
Coach Mike Holmgren considers Jones a starter at halfback. It's just that he's not the only one. Holmgren says Maurice Morris is in that same category.
"I'm looking at it right now as if we have two starters at that position," Holmgren said.
Running backs aren't like a religion. You can have more than one, and that's just what Holmgren said he plans to do, following the lead of teams all over the league who are spreading their backfield's workload.
