Re: I'm a horrible runner...

The most effective move to break the tackles with all running backs would be the cover ball button. If you have more of a power running back the truck stick is more effective though.

Do not hit the spint button until you are hitting the hole, because you need to allow time for holes to open up. thats how i seem to break the big ones.

Re: I'm a horrible runner...

I found out pressing the Y button (triangle for our PS2'ers) breaks a lot of tackles. It's supposed to be the "protect the ball" button, but it works to break off some arm tackles and the like. Works well.

And on tosses and sweeps, you have to wait for your blockers to take out their targets. Then you can either cut it inside or bounce outside. It's all about patience. You won't always get good blocks (and it's frustrating!), but when you do and you break a 7 yard run, it feels quite rewarding.

And there's always sliders!

just broke a 35 yard TD w/ ronnie brown. I hit the Y button, and he spun off 2 guys and made them look like crap. I notice the Y button combined w/ the left thumbstick does more then just protect the ball.

Yeah, I too have found that the "Y" and the L-Stick can be a very good combo...
