The problem with traps, draws, and counters is that you cannot use that as a basis for running the ball.
These type of plays are change ups to traditional runs. Think of it as a playaction pass but in the sense that you use it to trick the defense when they are already afraid of the run.
All of these runs are predicated on over-agressiveness of the LBs trying to fill the gaps because they are selling out on the run completely.
We can't even establish a run game so why would those runs work if the defense is laughing at us trying to run the ball in the first place?
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
