I know that is what they say ... but they used to say that about running backs too, and now most teams use a platoon situation at running back. I would stipulate that it would be a little bit more problematic to use a platoon at QB using the current offensive schemes in place, but I think that isn't nearly as important in a run first scheme. Player speed and decision making skills are more important than being able have passing accuracy or timing with receivers in a run first scheme.
