I loved those fake draws. It looked like they actually practiced them, wow, what a concept.

And Redman's game got a lot better when they didn't want to tackle anymore too.

Yeah, the run that was called back because of Wallace being on the line was classic. he got some decent blocking up front and when in the 2nd level he can be more dangerous than anybody else on the roster.

When you actually practice running the ball and committ to it during the game.....a good RB can have some big gains.
