November 1972

The article discusses the return of the running game in professional football 1972. The running game has been used primarily to give the receivers a rest. Accoridng to the author, what prompted this re-emphasis of the run is that bringing each of the hash marks 3 7/12 yards closer to the field's center has made the defenders' job harder both on the pass and the run. Another reason is that the use of pass-conscious zone defenses has paved the way for the runners who populate backfields.
