Look at the Broncos in 05 when they have the big guys Anderson and Dayne (plus Tatum Bell), they only ran to the edge 15% of the time.
Well...The scheme isn't really designed for bruiser backs...

It's designed for quickness...


The Gibbs scheme is designed for guys like Portis, Warrick Dunn, TD, and all the other quicker more explosive backs...

The Bronco's probably adjusted their runs due to the type of backs they had...the scheme is still designed to be more off tackle, stretch oriented...

Besides that...You can't look at one year to the next for one team...Of course the kind of backs you have from year to year will determine how and what kind of runs you do...compare Denver to another team...not itself...
