Re: Special Teams

In the past, yes. This year, no. Now I get a guy to the outside and try to contain him, that way he can't break to the outside. After the return man breaks the first hit I usually try to move in for the tackle.

Re: Special Teams

I take control of the closest guy and I have no problem with making tackles. Im not going to sub in my starters and get teh injured doing special teams duty. Most NFL teams have 2nd and 3rd stringers in there on special teams anyway.....I dont see it s a problem.....I havent tried it with any sliders but I can run back kickoffs for 35 to a TD with ease.....maybe the sliders will fix it....

Re: Special Teams

I'm not saying sub in your starters. I'm just saying you can get better personell out there than what's on the kickoff team. Some of the backups on D are not even out there man. You can sub in all your back ups.

Re: Special Teams

I think VC should fix this in ESPN 2K5. I was playing my Best Friend last night (He was the Eagles and I was the Broncos) and he returned 2 and I returned 3 kickoffs for TDs. I even returned a punt for a TD in the same game. If we didn't run so many kicks back it would've been a low scoring game.

I don't think the special team players should be rated high but at least high enough they don't get blocked forever. I don't want to sub in better players all the time.

Another thing against the CPU the CPU kicker always runs my returner down but when it's my turn my kicker is blocked

Re: Special Teams

You guys are not getting what I'm saying though. If you go to your teams NFL site and if they have their kickoff personell listed, it isn't exact. All I'm saying is change it to what your real team has on there and you won't have a problem. If you check ESPN's kickoff team personell, they got some offensive and slow *** defensive linemen on the kickoff team which IS NOT right.

Re: Special Teams

Sure, just do it in your custom playbook and load it before every game.
