As soon as we saw a consistent eight in the box, it is time to abandon the run game and throw the football. We were so intent on running in the 1st and 3rd quarters, we were playing right into their hands. I don't have a problem with running the ball but, not against eight in the box. That has always been my problem with BB. You can do whatever you want against 6 or 7 man fronts but, an 8 man front is begging you to pass the ball. Also, I definitely agree with you with defenders funnelling the ball carrier.
