Idk how I want to present this but figured I would say something cause it did piss me off. Dude goes 5 wide with time running down and runs it twice with his QB in the final 45 secs to get in field goal range. Everyone went deep and then he runs with QB, obviously he knew what he was trying to do. I am mainly pissed cause that drive decided the game.
I knew you'd be on here bitching. Funny coming from someone who used FB DIVE 3 times. That is literally the cheapest run play in the game. That's is why it's banned except for 1-time use in my other leagues. Anyways, here is the WHOLE story..
3rd and 15ish from deep in my territory, 1 timeout. I go 5 wide and get a first down. Obviously I go no huddle. Dude rushes TWO guys. TWO. What am I supposed to do here? It's not like I ran teh ball as soon as I hiked the ball. I even went thru my reads and nobody was open. Am I supposed to throw it into double coverage? Or throw it out of bounds? Half my linemen were just standing there, blocking NOBODY. WTF... If I'm not allowed to run in this situation, you could literally rush 2 every pass down and not have to worry about it. It wasn't like, oooh i'm going to go 5 wide and then run. I was 5 wide on THIRD down, and ran no huddle with less than a minute left. How is rushing 2 and dropping 9 "playing right"? I literally looked down at my QB and saw nobody. NEVER had the intention of running until it was presented. And it wasn't the first time I went 5 wide the whole game either.. if I was going to do this to exploit it, how come I didnt do it earlier on other 3rd downs?
