I think simming the season through to the offseason, instead of just to the postseason, just makes more sense. Here's why: 1) We save more time, possible leading to another season. Even if the time we save can't equate to another user season, we can possibly fit in another SIM season or two. This means 2 more drafts, 2 more offseasons, 2 more seasons of overall fun and frustration when things don't go your way. 2) It allows us to be much more "GM-Like". I am under the assumption that we SIM every other season not only so we can have more seasons under out belt with our slower advances, but also because it puts us in a more 'GM' role. Now, that works all well and good for regular season, but once we hit playoffs, it goes from SIM to human skill. It's a SIM season. Why would we only SIM 75% of it? What's the point of being a GM if we just go to user skill in the most important part of the season? This may only be my view, but I would never get the satisfaction of having a true winning team as a GM if you control them for the end. Sure, they made the playoffs. But it could be because they were a good team. It could be because you had an easy schedule. It could be a number of different reasons. But you'll never find out if your roster is actually championship-quality. You'll never know if they could actually win a SB without your help. They'll never advance through the playoffs themselves. It'll always be you; the user. That's not being a GM. Not to me. I want to build a team and watch my team win or crumble in the postseason by themselves. I don't want them to lose because I fucked up, forced throws, and threw 3 interceptions. I don't want them to win because I'm a super Madden veteran going against a guy who can't do much outside of Hot Route. I want my team to win. I don't want Me to win. What do you guys have to say to this? Be sure to add some more points for and against the idea, and vote in the poll.
