This is it! This week is for all the marbles. MIA, NE, SD, CLE, MIN, CAR and DET all have a shot to make the playoffs. Who's going to step up and who's going to play spoiler? Congrats to KC, HOU, NYJ, DAL, NO, GB and SF who have all secured playoff spots! KC is still undefeated at 15-0, MIA is on an 8-game winning streak and NO is on a 7-game streak. Lots of hot teams heading onto the playoffs! Week 17 Notes: Short week this week. We need to speed up a little to hit our date of Nov 18 for the draft. Everyone try to be done by 10PM Tuesday. A few of you are putting off scheduling your games until the final day. EVERYONE should be posting within 24 hours of advance to attempt to schedule their game. Your best bet is to post at least once per day. If you do not attempt to set up your game until the final day and your opponent has been posting, trying to set up the game. They will be allowed to play the CPU should their schedule not match yours. Obviously we want as many user vs user games as possible but be respectful to your opponent and your league mates and get your games in as soon as possible. I think we are doing great with stats and gameplay. We've come A LONG WAY! Just a refresher heading into the playoffs: You can no do anything all the time (or even a high percentage in the same situation). For example, do not bump every running down or every passing down, do no blitz every running down or passing down, do not play man every passing down, do not shift every running down or passing down, etc. You guys get the idea. Mix up everything. Play 50-60% zone, blitz less than 40%, only bump situationally, so on and so forth. Draws, screens and counters are not staples of an offense. Draws should not be your primary running play nor should counters. HB screens should be used to counter an aggressive D not as primary play calls. None of these plays should be used more than 4-5 times per game max. You guys know how to play sim, just a reminder. Everyone is doing really well. Let's keep that going through the playoffs and into the VFL Bowl. I'm excited to see how things turn out and then get to the offseason. Let's do this damn thing!
