Do you have a link to this?? O linemen generally like to block for a RB that will run behind the seams that they open up...that being said, if you have a guy with some speed that can break a big one, the defenders have to honor that and it makes an O lineman's job a bit easier.

To me, it never mattered if it was a speed guy like Parker or a power guy like Bettis...just block the guy across from you and let that RB hit the hole.
