Stopping Outside Run (Counters mainly) Played a guy lastnight that absolutley torched me on the outside runs. In hindsight I should have probably went 3-3-5 later to add some speed on the field but didn't think of it. But it seemed that the guy pretty much ran counters the whole game and I couldn't get to him. I usered the MLB most of the time and after I saw which way he was going I tried to get outside but I would always get caught or picked up or run into other players trying to get there. Do you coaches have any tips on how to shut down the outside run game? Playcalls, shifts, blitzes, whatnot? (I tried corner blitzes too for the most part which were unsuccessful).
