View Full Version : HB Tosses

Hey Bomber, when you play the computer does the computer run about 10 HB tosses a game. Do the tosses work from the ACe formations, without any lineman pulling?

Now that you've mentioned it they do like to run counters and tosses. I'm going to play an option team and see how their run game looks. I tried one toss from the Ace Slot formation and you guessed it got nailed for a loss on the play. Part of me says it's the slower game play of the XBOX that contributes to this. At times you get the feeling you're stuck in quicksand.

Yeah, the toss sucks for me too (using PS2). I've tried it a few times and the AI really licked my rear (if know what I mean). The AI seems to have decent succes running toss plays. Oh well, my counters and middle ground attacks still seem to do the job.

The Lead Toss out of the I-Normal usually works for me. I play WVU so I have a speedy HB and an excellent Oline. To stop the inevitable LOLB or LDE from blowing the play up I motion the FB first...and then snap the ball. Usually the FB will pick up the blitzing LB or DE and allow me to get outside. It does get blown up sometimes....especially if the team I'm playing has really fast DE's and LB's.....like LSU. Like everything else in this game...I've learned to play a couple of plays ahead of myself. I generally try to do a PA pass before any toss play or option.....the PA will freeze the DB's and LB's and make them think before they blitz. That one second hesitation is all I need to get around the corner and bust a big one. This will work for me against the CPU as well as online. btw...I use Xbox
