I also agree that Tight Ends are an over powered weapon, but not unbeatable. I have one of the best Linebacker cores in the league, and I would almost never put a Linebacker in man coverage with a Tight End. You have to put a Cornerback or Safety on them. If I see Tamme in man coverage with Johnathan Vilma, you better bet I am going to throw it to him.
Also, you guys better be hoping I get Bush back soon so I can stop passing.
I think even that is a stretch. Most safeties in the game don't even have the man coverage to stick with the TEs (especially when they do those cute little head fakes on zig zag patterns). This is where EA's stupidity of taking out defensive assignments comes in. The reason I went out and got the top CBs I did was so when I'm getting burned by pass happy teams, I can run a Quarters defense and blanket the hell out of them. If I'm playing "do anything to stop the pass" defense, you shouldn't be finding "open" guys with three defenders around them.
This worked against DVO and staticz (teams who have exceptional WRs)...but teams who want to milk the TEs, the game will either stick my 3rd safety on the TE (whose man coverage is terrible) while putting my 3rd or 4th CB on the RB. Sure, I can change it myself...but how much time before the snap are you going to give me? Trust me, I'm going to continue to work on it. But to pretend that it's not a stupid loophole that should have been able to be solved by pausing the game and assigning Cortland Finnegan to Tamme is absurd. The more limited your opponent's tool bag, the higher your chances for success. That's all it is. "Defensive coordinators" are gimped.
if it would make things easier, I could switch to the dolphins (not sure if the Cardinals would be more appealing to someone to join) and then I could be closer to my Bills.
Yeah, that's definitely not happening, lol. I appreciate the offer, but you've played too many games with the Cardinals to consider allowing it. The less shaking things up we have at this point, the better off we'll be.
So much for that. How screwed are the Dolphins on those ridiculous FA contracts he gave to Jennings and Wallace?
Yeah...that part of it sucks. That's why sometimes I wish EA would have just left things the way they were. Adding finances just ramps up everyone's responsibility so much. It's not like I can force people to sign a contract to play for 5 seasons. And I can't blame people for getting burned out. It's just a lose-lose all the way around.
Guess he should have signed a TE
Ha...sadly, there's a good amount of truth to that. That's why I got superstar Tom Crabtree. I had a reliable source tell me he was Michael Crabtree's brother, so it seemed like a sound investment. Then I saw his picture... I think I was duped.
