    Gentlemen, I thought I'd share this post with you from the Hard Knocks forum. BobJr runs a great league and this is a good example of what to do and what not to do when running the ball. Check out the examples presented by ryty32 as they are a great tool for ALL of us to learn from. Props to ryty32 for putting this together...

    This should be obvious for people playing in this league. Kind of one of those requirements of being a sim style player. Unfortunately, I know at one person who bounces his dives to the outside on the regular. I won't call anyone out though, just hope that he will fix it.

    And no, it's not someone I have played this season already. ;)

    I have broken a few long runs up the middle and it surprised me probably more than my opponent. Just like the NFL, each run won't get you 10yds, (unless you're CJ Spiller), but it will wear the defense down...

    It seems like everyone can run the ball. I for one have been averaging a yard a carry...

    It isn't easy Troy. The Giants DL was hitting me behind the LOS every time I tried to run: up the middle, outside, sideways, didn't matter...

    Depends on your team scheme and line and runner. Packers are the anti run so are the patriots.
