Great run game = Great Offense
Teams on the professional and collegiate level who have a solid run game tend to perform better than those who don't. The primary benefit of the run game is to make the defense adjust.

To be special, your running back must be versatile enough to play effectively on every down. It requires a player to be very active every time he's on the field, and it's a position that'll wear you out consistently.
