    I'm torn between starting as a OC or a DC.

    On one hand I'm much better at defense than I am offense....

    However, the teams we are starting out with I assume in order to not get shit canned it's going to be crucial to put up points regularly. Which I wouldn't trust any AI to do necessarily. Especially if my virtual job is on the line. It might be better to try to outscore teams to start.....

    What do you guys think? What are you leaning towards doing and what is your rationale?

    I wanna be a DC but it really depends on what team is available when I pick. I want to run the 3-4 so I will try to pick a 3-4 team or a 3-3-5 team and convert them to the 3-4.

    I am torn, I am ok at defense but I agree with BDS. I think i will get KILLED by a lack of scoring by the AI. I want to coordinate a kick-ass defense, but we will see.

    OC

    I think of myself as a strong Offensive player; even with bad teams there are ways to win. If the defense can make 2-3 stops a game, I have confidence in my ability to score. Plus there is potential for Turnover TD's too

    I'm not decided yet, but I'm leaning towards offense.

    I'm definitely going DC. Me and a buddy used to do tandem Dynasties where he'd play all offense and I'd play all defense. They were by far my most enjoyable offline dynasty. I love trying to shut the CPU out and stonewalling their offense.

    very nice.

    I see several teams I wouldn't mind being, but I saw 1 I didn't expect that I would LOVE to be.

    I'm curious as to why it matters what school you get as to whether you're OC or DC. For me, I don't care what school I get I'll be a DC regardless. For you guys on the fence about OC/DC can you explain a little more so I understand?

    I don't know. Some places I think I want to be the OC, some places the DC. Nothing sinister...

    Oh I'm not suggesting anything of the sort. I'm just thinking maybe I'm an idiot for wanting to be DC regardless, lol, so I figured you could help me see the light. Of the ones you want to be OC, why is that? And same for DC schools.

    I am a more offensively minded person in football. Defense can be more boring, there is less scheming and decision making involved (in game atleast)

    You know, that's the thing that scares me about being DC; the glitches and bad programming. In '11's game I'd have gone bald trying to be only a DC because man D was broken, Zone D was broken, DLine pressure was Broken, etc...

    If this new Zone Scheme works like they tout it will go a long way to helping my enjoyment and not making me senile by December trying to stop offenses with broken defense
