God, I can't wait until they fix this **** and people have to run real offenses and defenses.
Yeah, considering most of the teams that I play go with 4-5 receivers every play.

The ratings and player weights need to eventually start mattering (other than speed heh).
I house ruled there must be 3 DL minimum at all times. The 1-5-5 is nearly impossible to block.

I've been screaming for player weights to somehow translate to strength or have some correlation between the two for some time now. The recruiting databases are horrible since the 199 lbs or the 202 lbs DE's will be the strongest and sometimes the slowest. There is no logic applied there at all.

Is it just me or should strength be universal. If a DE, LB, and DT each have 84 STR, should the DE's STR go down when he is at DT in the depth chart? Many times, DE's STR will rarely be in the 80's but LB's will be in the 80's much more. ??? I don't get it.

The recruiting database has a nice mixture of different kinds of DE's but the size not matching the skills/attributes kills it.

I think all ratings should be universal.
