A strong defence or offence to start your franchise? :D

Let's see what our members do If you're pretty much using a new team, and changing the roster top to bottom do you guys tend to choose defence or offence first?

I always have drafted a strong defence first, and never allowing myself to use free agency until the season starts.

Defense, obviously. You can get by on offense with a servicable QB, a mediocre HB and one or two decent receivers, since you as a user pretty much control everything meaningful that happens on offense, you can substitute a lot of lack of player skill with user skill.

On defense, you control a very small part of the meaningful game yourself so you have to rely on CPU controlled players to do their job.

An offense with 4 mediocre players and scrubs for the rest can still score huge points easily in Madden. A defense with 4 mediocre players and scrubs for the rest will get slaughtered every single game.

Agreed. Defense will be your best asset in the first 3 seasons especially if you need a QB.

I ALWAYS start with a cupcake created team and I tend to get a half decent O-line first off, followed by a half decent HB figuring if i can get some kind of a run game going I may be able to hit abit of playaction.

Then I go for the defensive makeover.

I build from the draft and draft the best player available.

Re: A strong defence or offence to start your franchise? :D

I do a little bit of both. I usually start to get a few playmakers on offense, but start to build up the defense in year 2 or 3. I started with the cardinals this go around and they already have a few keys in place defensively, with patterson (sp?) and cromartie. And of course they had Fitzgerald but i traded him because I got AJ Green on my team. This season I may try and get Julio jones but I dont see that happening...

It just depends on your play calling approach I feel.. Do you want a smash mouth offense, or a shut em down, lock down airtight defense? Me, I'm trying to get both... Wonder how many years it'll take me before I do that.
