I had read the stuff by the person (trey31 IIRC); it basically said the only stats that make any real difference were speed, acceleration, awareness, stamina, and injury. Now, intuitively, this doesn't make sense, but I thought I'd give it a shot with my new Dolphins franchise. I started building the defense with this in mind, and now have about 50% of the defense done.
Now, I see this...
Before I read trey31's stuff, my plan was to have two HBs who are good for passing offenses (for example, Antonio Pittman and Lorenzo Booker), a HB who is basically an extra WR (I like to have a crap ton of receivers), and then two FBs. One FB would be an H-back type of player, and one would be a power runner with high strength and break tackle for power running situations.
Yeah, I also read trey31's research. I don't entirely feel it is true on every aspect. Trey's post partially inspired this whole series, and it inspired the "How Awareness impacts Man Coverage" post as well. I would still recommend you get that power running FB with high Break Tackle and high Strength if possible. And make sure he is a big guy as well. Testing shows they consistently fall forward and prefer Trucking animations as opposed to elusive animations.
Thank you for the quick response!
Sounds good. I'm gonna give it a shot!
