A defensive ends job is to contain the outside for running backs, or pressuring the quarterback. A defensive tackles job is plow through the offensive line and sack the quarterback.
When the defensive is playing with their safeties deep and have man to man pass coverage, the offensive has a great advantage if they have a quarterback who can run. That's because in the defensive set, no one is covering the quarterback. Well that's fine if the quarterback is not a running one. If he is a runner, then no one is guarding him and he has plenty of room to run for good yardage.
