What do you do when you’ve got a dangerous running Quarterback, but your offense isn’t geared to him? You adjust.
Any Offensive System that is worth its salt is able to utilize the best athletes on the field. If that’s not the case, you don’t have a System.

The Iso Run Play is a classic downhill run play. But how can you make it safe in the modern game of football?
