Next season Czars and Knights will definitely be playoff contenders...especially the Knights where its anticipated that 4 "abandoned" teams will be dropping into our division. Both teams have quite a few "practice" games starting tomorrow so we can spend the time working out the AI kinks. AI GAME PLAN I really believe with the AI in place - then the coordinators life will be a lot easier when its just tweaking percentages. Sprspck - the Strong I run offense is the best input...but we need the pass to complement it. I went too much to the run and the higher level def. players were able to make some stops. The Donetsk Hammers W 40-17 game is a good example of the balance. Banky - the goalline def. is the best defense against the Strong I...but the lack of depth...plus my stupid offensive settings killed the D in the 4th. The Plodders were averaging over 200 yards on the ground at a 5.8 clip...we held them to 137 yards in 44 attempts. Right now the goalline D's effectiveness is still not known...especially when dealing with the TE pass. In the last game we only got passed on 2 times. PLAYERS BUILDS The Czars will be flushed with cash next season...so that is gonna help accross the board. The Knights have good builds going and is probably a season away from actually graduating a class to move up. Sutcliff and Shulkie Walters were easy decisions. We're gonna need to keep an eye out to see what needs both teams have.
