    Saw that now, but thought it went by overall rating....the bills have the lowest at 74 and we are 4th

    In this game team ratings are screwy which is why I went with default. Seems like with adjust rosters the team overall ratings change a lot. In the roster I used if you go to play now it says the Bills are 81 OVR. That roster is the same as today's roster update but with the cuts made because EA didn't bother to complete all the cuts. So in the interest of simplicity I am sticking with the order as posted.

    Not sure if you mentioned it b/c I did not see it but everyone should probably make sure fill roster is turned off. If you dont then I think when you advance to week 1 the cpu will add/drop players from teams.

    I think we may be too late though b/c I see alot of good rookies as free agents even guys like Bruce Irvin are already on the free agent list

    Ok guys, looks like I need to redo the file. The roster I used is screwy with guys missing and apparently Adrian Peterson's contract is incorrect. I need to check to see if it's a problem with the roster I used. I used an edited file based on the update that was supposed to have the cuts. Apparently that was a bad idea. I will post with updates later. Sorry about that.

    Sounds good. Maybe just use the Updated file by EA and let guys make the cuts themselves? Personally I thought the last file you used was accurate. Titans had 57 guys on the roster, so looking through this- most teams include Injured/ Reserve spots as well as the 53-Man roster guys.

    This means most teams will have to make 2 or 3 cuts anyways to get down to the final 53.

    You are correct. Everyone has to join the league before 'starting' the franchise advance. Then you advance to week 1 of the preseason. So I think the roster file we used is OK.

    The solution would be to start a new file. Everyone joins, then 'start' the franchise. Advance to preseason week 4. Teams make final cuts. Week 1 Regular season.
