Couple things I wanted to mention.... Just so everyone is on the same page. *** Disclaimer, this is not about anyone in particular. Just some things that I picked up from when I re-wrote the rules for the site that I thought everyone here should know... Speed Option On short yardage situations and especially near the goaline this play is virtually unstoppable. If you are getting a lot of 1st downs/TDs with your QB, this is probably why. For some reason the defense doesn't really string the play out right, allowing the QB to tuck it in and cut up for a few yards every time (even with a slow, average QB). Be wary of your playcalling in these situations. Running Game I want to tweak the sliders in this dept but I wanted to come out and make a few statements first. If you are getting the majority of your yards with counters and sweeps, cut it out. Especially counters from wide sets, even without a FB. At least pretend you have to set the defense up for an outside run. Even Jahvid Best and Chris Johnson have to run in between the Ts. I know some of you guys are real good on the sticks. I've been wanting to tweak the sliders and let the abilities of the HB shine a bit more, but I'm horrified at what might happen with the stats. Which bring me to my next point: use your 2nd string! Your 2nd string guy should be used in mop-up and spell situations. This should help alleviate some of the stat racking. Crashing the FS We talked about this and it has helped alot. Remember that a FS should very rarely meet a ball carrier anywhere close to the LOS. Take your time Some of you need to take your time to read the defense. We are all busy, but rushing to the LOS to take the snap of the next play can make stats and number of plays a little lopsided. Plus you can keep your D off the field and not let the CPU hang 30+ points on you just because you scored 50+. I'm not talking about letting the clock run down to 2 seconds before you take the snap. But take the time to pick the right play and read the defense a bit before you snap it. I started doing this lately and you would be surprised at how much more enjoyable the gameplay is. TOP, number of plays and yardage are all greatly effected by this. I'll add more if I can think of anything. I sort of hit a mental block. If anyone wants to add, talk about something or ask questions, feel free. Keep up the good work guys.
