Stat cracks me and recovers the fumble and runs it back and then I run back the ensuing kickoff.

I get frustrated, line-up in the backfield without touching anyone, and knock the holy hell out of the QB when the ball is hiked. An injury to a starting QB is worth 5 yd penalty for me.


Lofa Tatupu is a ninja on that game. Any passes over the middle without the correct amount of "touch" and he's gonna grab an int. Haven't had much time to spend with the game so maybe ill spend the weekend working on some of that training.

The CPU QB has a bit of a Robotic-ness to it.. people have theorized that:

a) if you bring blitz, the CPU makes one of those like Peyton Manning reads and immediately checks down / throws it to a HB.
b) if you DON'T control your DLine at the snap, you do get more time to make adjustments.

However, if you just call pass defenses most of the time, the QB doesn't seem so robotic. If you don't pressure the QB, he looks human, , but when you do.. he turns into Tom Brady. Also, it does help to switch up your defenses constantly, so don't stay in 4-3 all game. If it's an obvious passing down, switch to Dime.

BTW, I personally didn't think Skywalker was a cheeser. But maybe that's just me.

It depends which team I use, but most often I play defense from a base nickel coverage. That's prolly bad. I need to familiarize myself with the playbook again, so it gives me an idea of what plays to expect from what formations and things of that nature. I like the nickel coverage bc I'm usually controlling where the OLB would be or a Safety. It is much much easier for me to control the DB than the LB. I don't know why. Obviously I'm not subbing out T Suggs or someone like that btw. I'd actually like to learn a lot more about how you play defense in the game bc i could sure use some help.

Good game man. Crazy start to it with me returning a fumble for a touchdown and you returning the next kickoff for a touchdown. Then it went downhill. Think it ended up 40-7. Thats one of the first games I passed most of the time.

BTW for some reason its not showing up that I played you. Hopefully it shows up soon.

You probably should have started off with someone easier. For 3 quarters of teh game you had negative yardage.
