WTF?

What's up with all the tackles from behind? I've yet to have one of those breakaway runs where the ballcarrier just runs away from everyone on D.

Playing on Heisman with 7 min quarters, Normal speed, threshold around 40, I think...
Just got the job at Ohio State as an OC with a primarily spread option attack and Braxton Miller just got fetched from behind by some donks from Navy.

Is the threshold setting my problem? What setting do you guys use?

Re: WTF?

Speed threshold is your problem. I use it at 40 because the lower it goes, I've found, the easier offense seems to get. Just my personal experience tho

Lowest I've used that still had reasonable stats was 25. Lower than that and I mostly just saw NFL Blitz style plays, arcade stats. I'm sure you could find a slider combo that combats that tho. Just need that synergy

Re: WTF?

Wow you've seen that on zero?

What is your returners speed?

Makes me wonder if the return and pursuit ratings give hidden boosts

I've been thinking that the return rating impacts the gameplay of your return team and your opponents kicking team for a while now. I've had players with 97-98 speed and 98 acceleration, but a low return rating and they never seem to get good blocks or hit holes on a return. When I get a guy with a low 90s speed and acceleration, but a high 90s return he always breaks away for a huge return.

That kind of gives it some perspective. I always thought kickoff return ratings were a wash because if you have speed, acc, good carry, awareness and vision you'd be a stud returner, but some of them have 70 overall return ability and I've always wondered why.
