Kasper Oshiomogho sawemoff hornfaninbama -Cougars- Philstyle3005 JQwon13 CoachRedd BPHusker I wanted to clarify some things, my message got lost in translation. I didn't have time before work to fully explain what I meant. I am NOT saying you can't switch your run to one side or another, or smart route your WR on a 3rd and long to get to the first down marker, or the occasional audible/hot-route of a WR if it just horrible against what the defense is presenting you (for instance if you're going to run, but your opponent is stacking the box. Feel free to audible to a pass play). What I AM saying is I am heavily discouraging heavy hot-routing of your receivers (every 1-3 plays or so) to use as a crutch in your passing game. Audibling one or more of WRs on a slant route every play is simply not sim, as that is not mixing up play-calling. I just had one of the best passing games ever in my TSO career against a user (17/20 178 yds 2 TDs 0 INTs), and I hot-routed a WR's route maybe 1-2 times the whole game. If on that must convert play/third down, you find yourself ALWAYS going to the same route (seam to the TE, 4 verts and audible a slant, all seams with your HB/FB blocking), you should really examine your gameplay. RGIII had 10.68 yards per pass attempt. When I see users getting 20-40 YPA in user games and in their season stats, it's a red flag. I could call slants over the middle, and seams all day long and rake up 500 yds every game. It simply isn't fun, nor is it realistic. In the video game, you can see exactly what the defense is doing. There is no effective mechanism to disguise what you're doing on D, therefore anyone who spends a little time could hot-route/audible every single play to exploit what they KNOW is coming. There is more to being sim that just playing within a given set of rules. I really let things get way too loose in regards to sim play up until this season, I apologize for that. In trying to defeat The Natural, I found myself resorting to the extreme hot-routing. It can be tempting. I have since focused more on strategy, and now I rarely ever need to do it. Does every see what I'm getting at??
