Post your thoughts here: My initial impressions are thus: -The game was competitive and definitely more challenging than the previous sliders against a team inferior to my own. -I found it very difficult to run, averaged exactly 3 ypc between my two backs. D-lineman were in the backfield immediately on most of my running plays. Again, this could all be attributed to my bad offensive line so I'm curious to see what other people observed. -Passing was difficult but not overly so. It was very realistic IMO. Pass rush wasn't out of control. It was well balanced. -CPU offense was decent and could move the ball on me, especially through the air which is where I'm weak on defense. They turned the ball over 3 times, otherwise the score may have been closer.
