Wink Can someone explain something to me?

They said Adrian Peterson just scored a rushing touchdown.

I'm not sure what that is.......but it was pretty cool.

Just sayin'...........

Sure. I'll try.

Years ago there was an important part of Steeler football. It was called the running game. A back would take a handoff or a pitchout and gain yards by running into holes opened up by our OL.

The plays beat up the defense when applied with determination and aggressiveness. Also, a nice by-product of this approach was the great amount of time that would come off of the clock...since the game clock does not stop on an in bounds tackle and whistle.

Most of the time the opponents had to bring up the defense into a closer position to the line of scrimmage...allowing the offense the option of the play action pass. Often resulting in great gains through the passing game. You see the defense had to play not sure of what offense would do. It could create much confusion.

Often after long time consuming drives, a RB would punch through into the endzone and score a TD. The defense walked slowly back to the sidelines...beaten and not wanting to go back into the game soon.

In the 4th qtr many teams would quit and call it a day, beaten. Tired of tackling hard runners.

There.

a rushing touchdown ? isn't that when you go 4 wide in shotgun on 1st and goal from the 5 so you can score real fast ? then do the same thing on 2nd and 3rd down ...cause your in a rush to score...

Rushing? Touchdowns? Steelers Football?

All of these terms are foreign to me...
