How can i stop my FB's from carrying the ball, all i want them to do is mainly block, does this have to do with the formation that is selected in the playbook?

1st thing: avoid running from either Shotgun formation ... there are no Halfbacks in the Shotgun.

2nd thing: don't run up the middle in the Wishbone.

I think that should do it.

Pro Set has no FB, and I think the HB does all the rushing in the I and Big-I.

I drew the formations up on 3x5 index cards, so I can see them at a glance.

Very old-school, low-tech. But easy to shuffle through and compare.

Possibly you did not fill all the spots, or parts of your squad got injured before or during the game

I have only 1 player, who is injured. I made so many positions, what was in that guide, (what i found here on the forum.)

For Example i put 2 player in QB positions. But somehow my LB plays the second QB.

Good stuff no doubt.

Im still learning that a passing Wishbone formation against a 4-3-4 defensive formation seems to provide a but load of Int's.

Two in my last game. Also i am yet to focus on my defensive playbook havent even finished the bulk of the offensive one, then ill go to the D, and then ill do the necessary adjustments. I figured that at least this first season is a learning process so im not very worried about the end results for my team at this point, heck im still trying to ditch some bad players and substitute them with avg's players just to have a slight improvement when next season comes.

Its a slow learning process (my brain dictates that speed)
