The basic set is real simple:

OOXOO
.............
.....Q.....
.............
.....H.....

From that set, you can run a pitch or a draw. Pitches are good for quick runs off tackle, draws are good for setting up zone-read running plays.

What's great, though, is that if you make your HB back step, the QB will fake the hand off, the defense will freeze, and the QB will be free for a run. I've been using a simple inside fake with the Falcons (HB back step, everyone else run block) and Vick is almost guaranteed 8 or 10 yards every time.

And, I've modified my goal line set to look like this:

TOOXOOT......
.................T T
.......Q............
......................
.......H.............

I run three kinds of plays - draws to the HB, inside fakes, and play action passes.

Yeah, I've had this happen to me by accident after doing my best Peyton Manning impression at the LOS, I audable to a run play, the handoff gets screwed up and I'm able to take off downfield somehow with my QB.
