Triple option is pretty nasty against a 4-4 and easy to run out of a pro-I.

You attack the 4-4 like any other defense. 

Inside and Outside ISO. Straight Dives and Power.
Add in traps and Counters.

Above All, regardless of Defense, Play Action!   Speed Outs, Curls, Hitches, Half Back Pass, and Roll Outs. 

Evil  :P

Triple is nasty out of any formation ...

How do you attack other defenses?  You have listed a myriad of plays, all good by the way, what do you want us to tell you?   Having never seen your team play or the defense you are facing anything we say is all based on Our Experience against what we see.  You attack a 4-4 just like any other defense.  Find the Bubbles and exploit them.  Find the Weak Sisters and exploit them.  If you can pass then pass. That keeps the LB at depth instead of a yard off the line.  Play Action works against any aggressive defense.

If those are your plays then those are your plays. Are they a stacked 4-4 or are they a multiple look 4-4?
Any of those plays will work if you run them and run them well. There are post with attachments for the single back vs. a 4-4 that are easily converted to a two back formation/run. If you run any IZ plays with the fullback up the gut change the "fake" with the QB and TB to a pitch relationship and pound the dive till they key it. Then after that fake the dive and carry out the "option". It doesn't have to be a triple , double, however many option it is, it just has to look like it.
