Just bought this game and having issues winning

I'm assuming there must be something im doing glaringly wrong, so I was wondering if some of you could help me with my new coach. MY old coach got fired by four teams and only made playoffs once in ten seasons, yet my team was always very good ratings wise. So, im assuming it has to do with my coaches abilities (I made a created coach to start) and playbook.

Anyway, what are some good pointers to get started on the right track?

How good are your position coaches? Do you sim or play the games? What are you philosophies and playbooks?

Re: Just bought this game and having issues winning

Couple of things...

1. Pick a playbook you like...if you change them there will be a learning curve for your players. Pick certain plays and run them until they get at least "learned" during the preseason. Dont worry about winning the preseason games...use it as a time to learn the plays. Go through and get rid of the plays that dont work. I had some that even though they were "mastered" the success rate was 4% and we lost yards...dump them.

2. Pick philosophies carefully and recruit to meet them.

3. If you start with a team that isnt good...be prepared for them to struggle with you as well. My teams are lucky if we go .500 during the first season or 2.

4. Us the fa sparingly...it uses a lot of money...if you research the draft well...you can normally rebuild through it.

Good luck.
