Run game key to running the spread

The spread offense has an image problem. The perception of the spread is that it's a wide-open offense with receivers zigzagging across the field and a mobile quarterback who throws on every down or can take off when no one's open. The reality of the spread is that it's often a run-first system and the cog that makes it go is an explosive, versatile running back. Many times, the passing game is just there to take the pressure off the run; some of the best spread offenses in the country run more than they pass. (Charlotte Observer)
