    What the hell is up with this? I noticed that most users have multiple touchdowns from special teams plays. What's the deal? Is it just too easy to return, cpu out kicking their coverage, you cheese-dicks just taking advantage?

    I think I have 2... Its been several weeks since I have had one. Just sometimes the blocking is good and you just shoot through the coverage and gone

    I should have 3 - 2 kick returns and a returned FG.

    I agree the number is too high but, how do we bring it down? My guess is EA will address this in their patch - if memory serves dont they tweak it every year with the first post launch patch?

    I'm sure they can tune it. But is the CPU maybe kicking it too far and leaving you too much room before their slow ass players get down the field?

    I've asked for more detailed sliders for this reason especially. It's just a fine tune area that we could fix on our own really fast.

    this on field goals. CPU will constantly try 55+ distance with terrible Kickers ans User return the hell out of them.

    Need to be patched

    Sounds like we need to put in a rule to disallow returning Field Goals - I've had 2 opportunities and taken 1 to the house if my memory serves me correctly.

    So what you are saying is that we need to cap the speed circa NCAA 2009?

    I would say that it's getting close.

    No one in the NCAA has returned 5 in the last five years. And only three people have had 4 (CJ Spiller, Tyrone Carrier, and Brandon Banks. AKA - elite athletes. Not scrubs that are on our teams).

    Also combined with the fact that EVERY user team leads the nation. Just stupid, IMO.

    Yeah, that's what we had to do in NCAA 2009. Because we were taking shit back like it was our job.

    ya bc in 09 on AA, you just had to run inside and let the defenders commit, then bounce it back outside and outrun all of them. You could do this almost every time lol

    I would think less than 88 speed would help. I have a few, but I've gotten caught from behind on more than one return this season.
