Any suggestion for poor play calling by the CPU?

I’m a CPU vs CPU guy. I’m seeing a lot of instances when the CPU throws on first and second down and will run the ball on 3rd and long which results in being stopped short with lots of punts.

Tom Brady is throwing for 2 and 3 yard gains on first and second downs and many times throws short on 3rd down or they run the ball again on a draw which is stopped.

I only have 1 controller. Is there a way to fix this or download a better set of CPU plays using only 1 controller?

Also, I’m using That Franchise Guys roster download if that matters.

If using one controller I believe you can only assign a custom book you create to one team...the one you control in Play Now.. I think you have to have 2 controllers to assign 2 custom books - one for human and one for CPU in PLAY NOW EXHIBITION. I don't think this is possible yet in CFM unless they changed that.

You would need to download a custom book that addresses these issues, or create your own and go through the down and distance stuff to add or delete plays...and rate them.

I'm not sure what it is right now without going back to look, but do you think the difficulty level would have any effect? Would a higher level make the offense more aggressive or would it make the defense more aggressive suggesting a switch the other direction to a lesser difficulty level?

The mode I'm playing is offline franchise. I'm in the preseason right now and having both teams controlled by the CPU. If I buy a second controller, do you think I would be able to assign playbooks to both teams or not? I'd be willing to buy a second controller if need be.

Thanks for helping me with this.

The best guy to talk to you about this is tommycoa here on OS. Send him a PM and he can walk you through what works and what does not. He creates sliders for CPU vs CPU (check out the slider forum). He knows this stuff like the back of his hand...

Check out my slider set. Got it looking pretty good right now. Iím using the active ea rosters. Having a custom roster could definitely be jacking your results.
