    I like how no one wants to mention that we are returning kicks at an atrocious rate. Good thing my guy returned a few and I realized how easy it was.

    I'm fixing to cap the speed. Everyone who is doing it has top speed. I'm thinking 90 spd on Kick off. 93 spd on Punt Ret.

    Thoughts

    Probably a good idea but I don't know how much it will help. I had a guy at UCF that was really good at returns and I think his speed was 89 or 90.

    Usually when I take one to the house there is a huge hole to the left side and I could take an offensive lineman to the end zone.

    I haven't returned one. My punt returns are pitiful. I've started to just call fair catches. I'm terrible at it.

    I wonder if the CPU chooses to do Kick off left (the KR's right) everytime. I sure seems like it. I busted one up the middle last game, though.

    It was fairly easy before the tuner pack, but I've only had 1 game of playing special teams against the CPU since it came out so I don't know if much has changed.

    Actually, now that you mention it I think two of them are off the left side whereas normally I prefer to go right.

    Are you guys talking about returning kickoffs or punts? I'm lucky if I get 10 yards on a punt return. I've started just putting the guy with the best carry as my returner so he won't fumble. Ha

    Punt returns are extremely difficult to return for TD's in my opinion. Kickoffs not so much. Now I haven't returned one yet, since Emmdot was the first game that I could actually play KR or PR, but Ive found that KR can get more yardage than a PR can even dream of.

    2 to the right 1 to the left. Actually most of mine in 12 have been to the right, if I get the blockers to pick up their guys, then I make that one guy miss and the gone.

    I could have returned another kcik with my 90 spd guy on the left side. He almost was caught from the angle of pursuit. I ran out of bounds at the 50.

    It's an obvious glitch, guys. Let's not take advantage of it.

    I almost had one to the right last night. Had it been my fast guy it wouldve been a TD, as it was my slow guy was ran down at the 30
