Thunder and Lightning: Two running back sets?

I was just doing my best Jim Schwartz impression watching Jahvid Best and Mikel Leshoure highlight clips which got me to thinking about how the lions can use them to complement each other and what a nightmare preparing for both of them will be for opposing defenses.

Now I'm certainly no expert on defensive schemes but wouldn't the best way to take advantage of them both be to have them both on the field at the same time? LeShoure is normally going to be going to be going between the tackles, Best will normally be trying to get outside. By having them both on the field at the same time the defense won't know how to react until they can see who got the ball. Plus they both seem like fairly good pass catchers and LeShoure is supposed to be a good blockers.

As I said before I'm actually as far from an expert on football strategy as you can get, could someone who is more knowledgeable about such things chime in and enlighten me as to what they think the best ways of using our two young backs would be/
