Were the WRs banged up? Did we just need to get a player on the field for a play as to not get a penalty? He seemed to get after it with blocking.
Yes

It was to create confusion for the defense so they wouldn't key on Barkley. They had to be on the lookout for a trick play.
yes

in addition to this, Surmur said they saw something on film that another team did with 2 QBs. So they threw KL out as a decoy, and apparently it worked

Think he is the second coming of Jeff Hostetler
I totally missed
