This article focuses on the Atlanta Falcons rugby football team in the U.S. As long as quarterback Michael Vick holds the ball in his left hand with his arm outstretched, he'll be susceptible to fumbles. But this style keeps opponents guessing whether he'll run or pass and allows underneath routes to develop. Football player Alge Crumpler's run blocking used to be a weakness, but he has learned to stay on blocks until the play is finished. Demorrio Williams struggled to get off blocks when he started the season on the strong side. Since moving to the weak side, he has had more leeway to disrupt the passing game and use his speed.
