That elusive running back giving you fits? Take advantage of the revamped Hit Stick in Madden NFL 08, which will allow you to execute a smackdown in a variety of ways. As this video will show you, the savvy player can take out the back's legs by diving for the feet (a move commonly used by kickers trying to take down faster kick returners), and there are other possibilities, too. The Hit Stick isn't brand new to this year's edition, but the "evolution" of that feature is bound to satisfy many a fan. Check it out!
