When is it acceptable to run with your QB? When does QB scrambling become "cheese"? Here are my thoughts: When Acceptable: 1) Every time: Large blitz flushes you out of the pocket. Opposition decided to blitz, gamble, roll the dice, deal with the consequences. Especially if they know your facing a QB with speed. They know the risks and have to deal with the consequences. 2) Limited times: Under duress from front 4 and no body is open. Get outside and either throw the ball away or get a few yards and get down / out of bounds. 3) Player runs Man to Man with over the top safeties. This, outside of the gaming world is when QBs get their most scrambling yards. When choosing this defense, it makes you vulnerable to a scrambling QB. You have the option to have your DL contain. When Cheesy: 1) Scrambling with QB when you predetermined to run your QB when you called a pass play. 2) Always seems to happen on 3rd down 3) At time of snap, sprints out and breaks contain very often, Obviously the QB scramble was broken a few years ago. I think EA has done a pretty good job of making it much more balanced. Maybe to the point to where it's slanted to the defensive side. I know that I like to use a lot of contain when facing a fast QB, it pretty much shuts them down if my DE's are worth anything. Another option is to bring outside pressure with contain called. Anyone else have anything to add? Could a user put up Denard Robinson like stats in TSO, or would they be considered "cheesing"? Whats the most rushing yards you've put up in a TSO dynasty? Are there any other threads on this topic on this forum? Look forward to hearing the responses.
