View Full Version : Redskins running plays

Has anyone had success running the ball with Washington??? If so, what plays are good. I usually try the sweeps and draws to no avail.

I normally use the HB dive out of the I-form it's designed to run off the weak side while giving a strong side look which in most cases causes the defense to shift to the strong side, I also use the HB Blast out of the Strong -I, HB Sprint out of the Singleback big, Off tackle out of goaline, and the HB delay&draw out of Shotgun 4wide.
The key for me running is have atleast two running plays out of every formation

I like the weak twins HB lead. I hot route the TE and FB straight ahead for blocking and motion the FB to the side the play is going. Even when the defense has a CB and safety lined up on the side the play is going to and all the recievers are on the other side, you get 4-7 alot. I also like to use counters. The biggest problem with Washington is Trung good break a tackle by punter let alone anyone on defense. He's got tremendous speed but this years game doesn't allow you to get into the open field easily like last year. If you can't break the first tackle then you are don. If playing franchise, get rid of him for first year guy with 86+ speed and high tackle breaking ability. If not figure you are only going to run to keep the D honest

Sorry, I meant to say Trung couldn't break a tackle by a punter. Haven't finished my first cup of coffee yet
