    Can someone explain how this is suppose to work? I used my FB last night in some short yardage situations and at the end of the game to kill the clock. The guy has 81 strength, 81 truck and 88 break tackle. One play in particular, I got him through the LOS and had a 10 yard head start before running head on with Nevada's FS. I hit the truck stick to try to bowl the guy over, and the FS literally stood my FB up in his tracks. Is there some sort of trick to the truck stick? Or is this just the way the game works with its lack of physics? I've never had big backs so this is kinda new to me.

    Really depends on the player. When i had Gregg Nwoko, he would be able to do it himself, or if i did the truck stick. I've had RBs since but they just don't have what he had. I keep looking to see what makes em good like him :'(

    Go to practice. You need to hit the truck stick a lot earlier than you'd think. Find a guy with high trucking and in practice work on your timing. A guy with high trucking and hitting the stick early enough (which isn't always possible with S early as you need to do it) will usually fall forward.

    I'll be honest, I'm not even sure what the truck stick should look like when it works. Are we talking Jerome Bettis running right over guys? I never get that out of this game. The best I get is a wiggle wiggle and shake the tackle, or more often just fall forward for another yard or two.

    Which I assume has more to do with break tackle rating than truck rating.

    I'll try that out, but I'm pretty sure I hit it plenty early. Usually I've had as much as my FB running in the animation with his head down and it still happens. Maybe I'm hitting it too early?

    This is kinda what I feared. I feel that it has more to do simply with ratings than anything the user is inputting into the game.

    hold RB + UP on right thumbstick.

    It doesnt happen often. Not sure if you have to time the forward lean or not, but I've pulled the classic "make-them-go-flying" truck like that.

    So cover up and truck?

    Doesn't make sense logically, but I'll give it a try and see if it works.

    Yes, cover and hold up on the right thumbstick. Try to time the lean. try with and without turbo

    I use the left and right jukes but not the truck so much. If I ever have ran anyone over, it was by accident. But if you got your ankles broken in the hole or whiffed through an arm tackle, that definitely on purpose!

    No you aren't. These HB can't truck nearly as good as Wright could.

    I did it (RB+RS) with Nelson but EA wouldn't let me view the replay because it was only a 15 yard gain :mad:

    In my mind, these 2 attributes are the same thing. In fact, I personally believe break tackle is really the important one here whereas trucking is much less effective, if at all.

    They're 2 differernt things. Trucking is how well the runner can run someone over/fall forward. Break tackle is how well they can breat tackles. This can be either by powering guys over with high trucking or by being shifty with high elusiveness. I've read a dev say that ELU and BTK are used together and I'm very sure they said that power runners use TRK with BTK, but I'm not positive. As an example, last season, Bryan Stephens had easily my most broken tackles and he has 68 TRK, 83 BTK, but 98 ELU. It's because of his extremely high elusiveness combined with his high BTK that gave him so many broken tackles.

    So RB + RS does work? That would explain why my RB Kenny Hilliard last year was completely ineffective. He was 250 lbs. and had a high-90's truck rating and he couldn't break a tackle to save his life with the exception of some sort of off-balance spin move that was so slow it gave the other defenders plenty of time to tackle him before he went anywhere.
