    akutozo Baby, I'm a Brown.

    Your Team: The Cleveland Browns
    Your Record: 11-5
    Your Offensive MVP: Drew Brees (100.7 QBR, 4,657 Yards, and a league leading 46 TDs)
    Your Defensive MVP: Mychal Kendricks (134 Tackles, 3 sacks, 3 FF, 6 INTs)
    Your Best Rookie: Ibraheim Ayers (58 Tackles, 3 INT, 1 FF)

    What your team did well:

    Offensively, I'd say the team performed outstanding in the short passing game. After some dangerous overthrows deep in a preseason matchup against iBO it was determined to move to a more methodical play style that ate the clock which largely succeeded. This is another reason we traded for Lesean McCoy, who not only provided a stable running game but sure hands in the passing game (against everyone except jay2149 who he inexplicably dropped or coughed up every pass ever).

    Defensively we did a great job stopping the run (against everyone not BigK44 ) and our team played efficient football, getting key turnovers through FFs and INTs.

    What your team didn't do well:

    The long passing game. We gave up on it too early and it will be a point of focus in practice to better unleash weapons like rookie wideout LeAndre Harper.

    Pass Rush. Depsite a line that has the tools to dominate, it came up short with our leading sacker Aundre (The Giant) Riddick getting 8 sacks. Look for the next user season to generate a double digit sack leader. A better pass rush to generate the interception totals that we would prefer (multiple players with 5+ picks)

    What is your off season approach?:

    With Drew Brees set to retire, it's important the Browns pick up a QB in FA or via trade. We do not want to bid for a QB in the draft. Additionally, we need to cement our defensive unit with a run stuffing LB and possibly beef up the secondary. We will be looking at all trade and draft prospects for this purpose.

    Your Team: Minnesota Vikings
    Your Record: 12-4
    Your Offensive MVP: Jerrick McKinnion 361 carries 1829 yds 19 TD 51 rec 514 yds 2 TD
    Your Defensive MVP: MLB Derrick Johnson 42 tak 3 sacks 4 INT
    Your Best Rookie: WR Ty Parks 43 rec 874 yds 6 TD

    What your team did well: Defense played great all year. 50.6 avg rushing yards a game! 12th best pass defense. 3rd best overall.
    Jerrick McKinnon stepping up to replace AP was huge.

    What your team didn't do well:
    Pass protection was a concern all year. O-line isn't where I would like it but both starting tackles were rookies, and showed a lot of improvement throughout the season.

    What is your off season approach?: we really don't need a whole lot. Derrick Johnson is getting old so we will look for another MLB, most likely to backup Hodges and Kendricks. We could use a big time receiver but I'm hesitant to go after one anywhere other than the draft.

    Honorable Mentions: D-line was a force this year. Standing up lineman at the LOS and allowing the LBs and safeties to make the play. CB Waynes and Robinson both had fantastic years. Waynes got the better stats but Robinson did a lot that doesn't show up on the stat sheet.

    Your Team: Miami dolphins
    Your Record: 14-2
    Your Offensive MVP: Ryan tannehill... Technically hes everyone's mvp :cool:
    Your Defensive MVP: jelani Jenkins aka the guy I user. Picked up 6 picks and a few sacks and fumbles
    Your Best Rookie: cb keeshawn Houston filled in admirably for Brent grimes

    What your team did well:

    Ran the ball. We ran more times per game than any other team with bars Miller and tanne picking up substantial yardage on the ground.

    What your team didn't do well:

    We struggled comparatively on the road picking up the only two losses. Other than that not much. Defense started giving up more yards in the second half of the year but I expect the return of nickle back Walt aikens to help with this come playoffs.

    What is your off season approach?:
    Best player available
    its always been the approach for this dolphins squad and will continue to be. We have holes that will start appearing at offensive and defensive line and those will be the first priority in free agency and the draft but only within the bpa strategy

    Your Team: Green Bay Packers
    Your Record: 10-6
    Your Offensive MVP: HB "Cheeseburger" Eddie Lacy: 362 Carries, 1,415 Yards, 19 TD, 37 Rec, 321 Yards, 4 TD
    Your Defensive MVP: CB Arsenio Hobbs: 61 Tackles, 4 TFL, 14 INT, 2 FF, 1 FR, 3 TD
    Your Best Rookie: LG Fernando Marshall: 8 Pancakes, 2 Sacks

    What your team did well: Moved the ball. We had (3) 1,000 yard recievers, Eddie Lacy had a career season and Rodgers hasn't shown any signs of slowing down. Defensively, we had 47 interceptions, which was 11 more then the 2nd place team. We had the #6 defense in yards allowed and the #5 rush defense.

    What your team didn't do well:
    Redzone play. We only scored on 80% of our trips into the redzone while our defense allowed our opponents to score on 89% of possesions in the redzone.

    What is your off season approach?: The secondary has to be improved and the Packers may be facing yet another Favre/Rodgers situation. Rodgers wants to stick around but is the brass ready to give the ball to the young gun?

    Your Team: Los Angeles Rams
    Your Record: 12-4 (made it to Divisional Round: Above and Beyond expectations.)
    Your Offensive MVP: Elliot Owens 91 Recs, 1500 yards, 8 Touchdowns
    Your Defensive MVP: HaHa Clinton-Dix 48 Tackles, 2 Forced Fumbles, 7 Interceptions
    Your Best Rookie: Torrea Baker 26 Tackles, 10 Sacks, 1 Forced Fumble

    What your team did well:
    Passing Defense was on point a majority of the season. First 10-12 games of the season, we were able to get decent pressure on Quarterbacks, and in turn, the Defensive Backs were able to pick off the pass.

    What your team didn't do well:
    Run the ball efficiently. For that matter, our run stop defense was not that great either. Let's eliminate rushing from the games.

    Defending against the deep bombs. Without a true standout #1 CB, the deep ball was caught nearly every time.

    2nd half of the season, the offensive line fell apart, just as my defensive line did. As if they switched roles, O-line busted through d-lines, while my d-line held their blocks for the duration of the play.

    What is your off season approach?:
    Looking at a possible Quarterback change. Foles was erratic, at the worst times.

    Offensive line needs to be addressed. With Ferguson possibly retiring and regressing, Left Tackle is going to be a major point of focus. Other Offensive lineman may be looked at, with the more teams running blitzs, the o-line has to step up. In their current state, I don't think they as a unit are prepared.

    Goal is to make it back to the playoffs, and hope for fun games.

    Your Team: Titans
    Your Record: 11-4-1 (3rd seed playoff spot and eventual Superbowl win)
    Your Offensive MVP: WR Kendell Wright (1600+ yards 10+ tds). Emerged as the #1 target on this team. Clutch plays all year.
    Your Defensive MVP: None. No standout play maker.
    Your Best Rookie: RB Lenex Brandon. 1k rushing and a few hundred recieving with ~20tds; missed 7 games.

    What your team did well:
    Score a bunch of points most games, pass the ball and run with the QB (just enough to make you say "fuck!")

    What your team didn't do well:
    Make big defensive plays. Not enough turnovers forced or sacks made.

    What is your off season approach?:
    Keep the core of this squad together. Looking at returning about 18-21 starters. Need to add some playmakers on defense.


    Won the Superbowl

    Your Team: Philadelphia Eagles
    Your Record: 10-6 (Lost in Wild Card)
    Your Offensive MVP: Russell Morgan (270/449, 3907 yards, 27 TD, 22 INT - 29 rushes, 50 yards, 1 TD)
    Your Defensive MVP: Wayman Lucas (56 tackles, 3 Sacks, 2 FF)
    Your Best Rookie: Delvin McClain (42 tackles, 5 INT)
    Offensive Stats : 30 PPG, 413 YPG, 273 PYPG, 140 RYPG
    Defensive Stats : 28.8 PPG, 398 YPG, 295 PYPG, 103, RYPG

    What your team did well:
    The Philadelphia Eagles had a great offensive year, finally finding a rhythm in the passing game, almost having 4500 yards passing (570 yards from Bradford during Morgan's 2 week injury.) The Eagles offense was able to score points this season and survive in some high scoring games. The sluggish start for the Eagles, was able to be overtaken once I got back on the sticks, and the Eagles went on multiple streaks to go from a 1-4 start to a 10-6 ending.

    What your team didn't do well:

    Defensively was where the Eagles failed to impress anybody this season. The Eagles defense allowed 28 points per game allowing each game to be close (Offense produced 30 PPG) The Eagles defense added key players in secondary to help out, and switched to a 4-3 defense, but just couldn't make stops when needed. The defensive captain, Kiko Alonso, missed 6 games this season, but still managed to rack up 62 tackles, during that 6 game stretch the Eagles only lost 1 game, but still struggled in all games he missed. There seemed to be little to no pass rush, no run stopping defense, will be the key to improvement next season.

    What is your off season approach?:

    The Eagles will look to switch back to a 3-4 defense, and make some improvements to interior offensive line, as well as picking up a few depth players, and possible new starters for the future!
