Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast Ep.77: NFL Running Back Matters with J. Moyer

Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast features RSP contributor J. Moyer in a conversation about the characteristics of good running back play and the NFL players who embody them. 

RSP contributor J. Moyer has coached at the high school level for several years. This week, he joins the RSP Cast for a conversation about NFL running backs. We break down some of the scheme details of NFL running games and the characteristics of running backs that fit these schemes well.

We also discuss a variety of skills and concepts:

  • Depth and breadth of vision.
  • Timing and footwork.
  • Performing in an inside and outside zone scheme.
  • Performing in gap- and down-blocking schemes.

We also analyze several NFL runners during the conversation including Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman, David Montgomery, Mike Davis, David Johnson, Kenyan Drake, Ronald Jones, and Peyton Barber.
