Ok.  Monday is here.  Stream is rolling.  I might not get much time on it so I wrote a new article on playbooks.


On screen I didn’t get much of a chance to play an even game to test out some of the playbooks I posted.  Off the screen in more even play I was able to use playbooks designed for each DB to my advantage.  Problem is the Colts are so outclassed it’s hard to do meaningful practices when I have to get my league games in.

So in the next couple of weeks hopefully there will be some time to test these playbooks in live action on stream so you can see it’s effectiveness.

Ok it’s almost 5 pm in Chicago and we are about to get some tecmo in
Tom and I should be on stream soon.

DPS and Tom are playing a hardcore matchup while I get a few things ready. Recently I’ve noticed my game on offense is getting stagnate. That’s why today I want to play around with some different playbooks in non hard core games. I will soon be in game one and leave you some observations on that game.

Dal vs jets. DPS takes a win in a sloppy played game. My strategy was to use pro-form plays to force Dan to utilize his running backs. However his defensive backs provided excellent drone coverage negating the advantage I was seeking. Unfamiliarity with the plays led to an early int. I did gain good ground running but needed faster running backs.

On defense I played a great game. I successfully rotated between 3 defensive strategies. The first one was to guess pass and cover with McMillan and Clifton. This led to two user picks.
The second defense was to guess run 3 and rely on drone help on the run and shoot passes. This left to openings on shotgun which Dan exploited for a big gain down the field.

Vs Brian. Houston vs NE

Going into this mismatch I knew I had to cover with lipper one on one with his receivers to have a chance. Using this and a run heavy approach gave me a solid start. Funny how even in excellent Grogan was useless. At half missed a jj attempt to a wide open Cook.

Brian would get the 1 in 500 player 2 onside kick. Then I would bungle onto a wild overtime sequence. Overall this was a good performance for Brian. He has come a long way since a 94-0 drubbing in the hardcore tourney.

Vs Tom Det vs Philly

Chose Detroit to practice more with pro form. What surprised me was being unable to hit deep routes against a slow Philadelphia secondary.
So far the play book is most effective for runs and short passes. All the runs have been hot. However pass 1 and 3 leave a lot to be desired. My next game I plan to use different plays for pass 1 and pass 3. Keep the 4 runs and try it out.

Game 4 league game vs Matt rai vs ind

I was helped tremendously in this game by Bickket going into excellent. With this conditioning change I was able to contain Bo Jackson.
