The Essence of Playcalling in Football Applied to Football Video Games


Note:


This started as a paragraph and it turned into a paper. It's just me talking about football strategy in terms of playcalling overall.


Balance and Unpredictability in Playcalling

I was reading about how statistics are calculating that NFL teams should be passing more. It's interesting, because ... Read More

The Tale of Two Games: Shootout in the 1st Half, Shutout in the 2nd Ends with Pittsburgh on Top

Final
MIN 17
PIT 21

A combined 38 points were scored in the first half, and a combined 0 in the second half. The first half saw two plays of over 75 yards and a couple of long, grinding mistake free drives. The second half was spotlighted by wonderful defensive efforts such as these:

Jared Allen forces a fumble inside his own red zone to prevent ... Read More

Steeler D Grinds Browns O Down for the Win

Browns 3
Steelers 20

The Steeler's defensive impact plays should clearly summarize how this game went: 4 interceptions, and 9 yards rushing allowed. These guys played fierce. The complicated zone blitz scheme tricked QB Quinn into throwing some passes he wished he had back. The biggest one he wish he had back was a pick 6 he threw in the second quarter into the flats to Ike Taylor to make the game 17-3.

Alright here's my idea for our salary cap:

First off, we'll use existing contract lengths in conjunction with my point system to get started. That means the Redskins are stuck with Haynesworth for a long time etc.

Here's the link to get contract lengths:

We'll use 4 values to determine contract cost per year:

Lions Continue Losing Streak Against Defending Champs, Fall to 0-5

Pittsburgh completely bullied the inept Lions for the entire game. Stafford's first pass was an INT to Ike Taylor, a kind of "welcome to the NFL". He was trying to force the ball to his all-world WR Calvin Johnson who was regularly doubled on the day. The very next play Pittsburgh threw a playaction bomb for 30+ yards to Santonio Holmes setting up their first TD.

Beyond that point Pittsburgh sat in conservative ... Read More

San Diego's Defense Shines in Pittsburgh

The Charger defense, led by Cromartie, completely locked down the Steeler's offense in Pittsburgh nonetheless. Both turnovers in the game were interceptions by Cromartie. One was a very difficult jump ball that was contested, and the other was a mis-fire by Roethlisberger from the pressure being forced. Both interceptions killed long drives and kept San Diego in the driver's seat.

San Diego's run D was so suffocating that the ... Read More

Steelers Hold onto First Half Lead to Start Year 3-0

Willie Parker Broke a 41 yard TD on the opening drive to give Pittsburgh the lead. The Steelers then continued to dominate the first half of football putting together multiple long, powerful drives. Cincy made a fatal error within 2 minutes of halftime, throwing a screen pass into cover 2 hard defense. It was returned for a TD. Pittsburgh went into the half up 24-3.

The second half was dominated by the Bengals ... Read More

Steel Curtain Carries Pit. to Victory

PIT 19
CHI 0

The Bears faced an uphill battle immediately after the 2nd play of the game. Matt Forte left with an injury and was not able to return. (Note: He will return week 3) From there, the game remained physical and sloppy for both teams. There were 11 combined punts and 4 combined turnovers. Multiple injuries occurred over the course of this physical game.

The Steeler D took care of business in ... Read More

Well, I almost lost to the CPU. I found myself down 3 scores in the second half thanks to 4 turnovers, 1 by Parker and 3 accredited to Big Ben. Just when you think I'd break my controller and cry like a baby, Parker breaks a 71 yard TD. This opens the flood gates that eventually climaxes at a 30+ yard fade for a TD to Holmes against man to man coverage. My inept defense then made a game sealing interception (Ike Taylor - INT-TD 71 yards). Steeler fans could then breathe a sigh of relief. ... Read More

2k Sports Football - freedom and competition and its finest

The game would come initially with a fictional league and "Create-a-League" mode . That'd give us that 100% customizable league we've all been screaming for. Allow straightforward roster fileshare. Allow leagues of up to 200 teams (NCAA!). With community efforts we could create every football league under the engine of 2k football - but ... Read More

Taken from a post I wrote:

As far as running goes - watch the DL stunts and avoid running to where their momentum is going. See them fan? cut inside. See them pinch? bounce it. It all starts on the DL.

- Try to use moves as much as you can. Fumbling is rare in this game and using moves often will make you better at timing them and it is the key to getting the most yardage out of runs.

- Don't only use the best move your RB has. Doesn't apply everywhere- but ... Read More

Line Stunt Discussion


Alright let's take a look at some ideas for using line stunts:

Base: I feel the base line stunt does a great job of penetration, especially against counters and generally plays where an OL pulls. Against the pass rush the wide side DE can get a nice speed rush if isolated, otherwise your DT should be 1 on 1 with the guard. Both situations can be effective based on your personnel.

Razor: This stunt can be used to help contain ... Read More

Taken from a post a I wrote:

Okay here is my secret to blowing up run plays in the 4-3 with controlling the MLB.

I read the 3 interior linemen and the RB's all together.

If you read a pull, you immediately run where the guard is on the playside and run through an open crease. If you read stretch, same thing you run playside where that guard is. Use your R stick reach tackles to make a tackle if you aren't lined up with the ballcarrier directly. If you are

Lambert Leads the Iron D and Coach Creatine to 2nd Straight Championship

Final Score: 17-7 PIT


Q 1 2 3 4
PIT 0 3 7 7
MIN 7 0 0 0
The Armchair QB's season 2 championship was a tight game up until late in the 4th quarter. Both teams played nearly picture perfect defense for its entirety. The holes were small, the hits were huge, and the pressure was fast. As the game wore on the defenses got more and more agressive. It was very ... Read More

Bulls Survive Home Opener

Score: 28-21 Creatine

This game went down to the wire with Bobby Hebert throwing the winning touchdown to Jackie Smith (33 Yards) with 19 seconds left in the game. The game was a shootout where both teams shared the lead at one point in the game.

The offense for the Bees was very pass heavy, only running with Charley Taylor a handful of times. Bart Starr had a great game going 16 for 24 for 266 yards, 3 TD's and 1 INT. James Lofton shredded ... Read More
