Non-fantasy franchise play?

Hey guys,

I'm a bit confused... I keep playing with Franchise settings and I'm getting nowhere. Is there NO WAY to play a franchise without the CPU messing up all the rosters and cutting players all over the place before the season starts? Even when I control every team and every THING, it still starts signing free agents and cutting players during preseason to the point where the teams look nothing like the real NFL by the start of the season.

So, in other words, they've decided to complete abandon people who just wanna play with realistic rosters like me and can't stand the fantasy element?

PLEASE tell me I'm missing something here and I just missed an option or something!!

U can't stop the CPU from signing FA's before Week 1 of the regular season but before Week 1 of the pre-season, u can narrow every team's roster down to the 53-man max....gunna be very time-consuming if ur up for it

So only wanting to play a football game with accurate rosters to real life means no football for me this year? Seriously??

Re: Non-fantasy franchise play?

There are ways to do it, but like others have said, it is very time consuming.

You can either set all 32 teams to user control so that you can intervene when they show their stupid... or you can set aside like 4 hours at the beginning of preseason to edit all of the UDFAs to be punters. This way they don't stay on the roster.

These fixes would be so much easier if there wasn't 3-5 seconds of lag every time you press a button in a menu.

Ugh... I'm feeling the annoyance and headaches already.

No thanks. Not worth it.
