Power & Protection

Six rules for redskin running backs.
by: Bobby Jackson
Running Backs Coach,The Washington Redskins
© August 1999

The Washington Redskin offense, under head coach Norv Turner, is a power running football team. There are two things we must do to be a power running team. One, we must be physical. We must finish blocks, and we must finish runs. As ball carriers, we must run behind our shoulder pads with great pad level. We call it downhill or north-south running. The second thing we must do is protect the football. We stress tucking the ball away with two fingers over the nose of the football and both arms over the football, when necessary.

There are six goals the running backs strive to accomplish each game:

1. Protect the football.

2. Protect the quarterback.

3. Be physical.

4. Run the football with second and third effort.

5. Run defined routes catch the football.

6. Score touchdowns win the game.
