Thank goodness for you guys and this thread. I was looking for something in Portis' ratings (which are stellar) because I just cannot get the guy loose with any consistency. I've been going nuts trying to run the ball, I've even considered using Shanahan's offense since everyone every says its the system. I'll try that tonight.

The only money play I've found so far is I formation curls. But I hate using them because it's hard to get YAC because the corner is usually right there.

If you're consistently getting 300 yds a game on All Madden you're either playing against the Berlin Thunder or you have way too much free time on your hands.

Running has always been my strong point in madden. I have been getting over 200 a game on all pro, with five minute qtrs, everythign default. So ill probalby go to all madden now. i could dominante on all madden on 04, ive only had the time to play half a season on madden 05, so i started with all pro.

My disc went bad so i had to fraking order another copy, should be here next week,

which offense do you use skinsncanes?

I tried the run and gun for a season but I've actually had better luck running with Gibbs' playbook. Just missed 2k with Portis this season, ended up with 1900 and change.

I've been using New England's playbook, and loving it.

I've never had this much trouble running the ball. I can go about 80-100 yards a game on all-pro with default but thats with one or two big runs. Take away my big runs and I am averaging like 1.5 yard a carry. The defenders seem to make tackles easier and shed blocks very easily. That is of course when they actually get blocked. Often LBs penetrate almost immediately on the snap and running is impossible. EA has also seemed to negate the effect of spin moves and jukes. The jukes seem almost worthless accept to make it esier to get tackled and the spins are much too difficult to execute properly in traffic. Disappointed in the direction of the running AI I am! One other thing I notice is that there are numerous plays(like HB Lead) where the play may go off tackle or guard and basically the whole play is super slow because Ramsey's ass is slow as molasses on the hand off. I can't even consider using any type of play that isn't a quick handoff and hit the line right away.
