Do you play the first year like the current real NFL season, or do you immediately start revamping, especially if your using a team that needs alot of help?

Well, since I usually pick the Chiefs, of course they need help, but I try not to do too much as far as signing people and trading. I like playing the season with the people I have to see what their strengths and weaknesses are wnd finding te areas tha I really need help with. Then in the first off-season is when I really get crazy!

Cool, I'm about to do a franchise with the 9ers I think. I havent done a franchise on a fotball game in so long. But I know I probably dont want Shaun Hill for too long. So I'm thinking about trying to acquire Brady Quinn somehow before the season.

I usually play with what i have except for the players that i wish my team would see the truth about. I don't go and trade them all for draft picks i release them into FA, so if some other team has a need they are welcome to our trash!

Yea, one thing you do want before you start is most definitely a QB you believe in and have fun playing with. So you can either try to acquire someone or you can wait a season and trade up in the draft to get a stud.

I usually half *** the first season and even sim most of it, make some trades to acquire draft picks etc.. Its a lot more enjoyable the second season because you feel like you have something invested with the players you acquired. The first season is just to bland for me. I like using my favorite team, but if I can find a team to rebuild its usually more enjoyable especially once that team starts progressing in the coming seasons. I'm currently using the Rams and its been a challenge...

I play with the jets, and stick to as real a sim as possible.. its harder, especially with later roster updates in which players on IR that played the first few games, but doable.

You can keep it pretty close to reality if you control everything you can- calvin pace out first 4 games, shaun ellis 1st game etc. and do the same for the team your playing (controlling all 32 in franchise).
