I love this game!
Season #1: Seattle Wolves (Purple & Gold - Similar to the UW Huskies)>>
Last night my Seattle Wolves (3-1) coming off of a key win at Minnesota, 21-6, played host to (1-3) Milwaukee - last place in the Pacific Conference - North Division (Seattle, Minn., Chicago and Milwaukee are in the Pac-North).
Why do I love this game so much? Because the different player matchups and skills determine the outcome and the flow of the game. The way I had to adjust and attack Minnesota was with screens and stretch playes because of their awesomely aggressive D-Line. Milwaukee is built differently - they feature Derrick Thomas at OLB and another OLB….so I had to adjust…
One problem…THE RAIN. In a feakin' downpour, and with those two Linebackers, my running game struggled….as well as the passing game. Derrick Thomas took a brian urlacher approach and dropped deep to take away the left side of the field, but I managed to hit Jerry Rice on a 50yd 'go' to set up my only TD. Weather also played a HUGE role...and equalized the talent…turning this into a slug fest.
The Indians were able to play well enough defensively …late in the 4th the generic HB broke free for a 22 yard TD to force overtime. Neither team moved the ball in overtime and the game ended in a 10-10 tie!!! Awesome.
Here's my roster: Gold
FS-Ronnie Lott Silver
HB-Billy Sims Bronze
QB-Me (Created myself as a 6'2" speed burner qb - see pic)
Offensive philosophy is to pound the rock in the two-back system and use an efficient passing attack to generate big plays.
