I love gauntlet throwing!

Looks like a pretty solid class this draft season though. Not if you're looking for a QB, but a lot of solid 3.5 stars this season.

Hey, anyone know what would cause a couple of my players to drop from 100% TC down to 30-60% TC? I didn't change any positions or anything, started the season with 100% TC and just somewhere out of the blue they dropped down. One of them, I did attempt to sell.. so maybe that's it. But the others I haven't touched at all in any way.

Yes, failing to sell a player will hurt their morale and TC.
Also, if you fire a coach, the players at that position take a TC hit.

Well, that was a game... 13 interceptions for my CB Ludvig Clarberg, 8 of them he returned for touchdowns. I think that's the most I've seen in a game in quite some time.

Kinda feel bad about it actually lol.

Holy shit.. And I thought I was on the wrong end of things with my QB getting sacked more in one game than nearly an entire season last year. Props to more INTs than some QB's score TD's in a season. lol

I just don't understand this game sometimes.. team started off great, then just went to shit. Like they gave up after the 1st quarter. Seems if the game says one team has an advantage, they are going to win no matter what, unless they screw something up.

Your opponent was a noob who passed EVERY down. Your lad just waited for the outer right pass every third down. Kind of played into your hands

A couple things about the game, to help you out for down the road. For one, I'm no stranger to the rodeo, and have a higher salary team, so you had a pretty tall order.
But I think one of the things that cost you the game was your playbook. Here's the thing about PBs: a good one won't really mean you win you games, (it's not as beneficial as just having good players,) but a bad one will lose you games. The one thing you absolutely want to avoid with your PB is being predictable. Not only will managers that take the time to scout you be able to gameplan better against you, but the game engine itself is programmed to punish predictability in a PB. Just as in real life, if you run the same play out of the same formation every time, he opposing defense gets clued in as to what you're doing and plays better against you. Your PB always rushes the ball in goal, I-form, and wish, and (almost) always passes in shot2, shot4, and spread. Compare this to ION's, who I'm playing next. He always runs sin-big on 1st down, but he uses random rush/pass mix, so neither scouting managers nor the game engine can predict which one it will be on any given play. This is much harder to play defense against. (He does this in game settings instead of the PB) Several of the top players in the game use random mixes instead of using the PB, because it's easier to be unpredictable doing this than to take the time creating a complex PB.
I would suggest changing up those formations you are using to use a mix of rush and pass, so pass it sometimes out of iform, rush it sometimes out of spread, etc. If you're going to use the PB instead of the game settings for all your plays, you HAVE to make it complex enough to be unpredictable, or you WILL lose games.
Hope that's helpful!

I legit just was working on the playbook the day before, and was the first time I used it. So scouting shouldn't have been much of an issue as I changed things up a lot. I do need to continue to add to it though, didn't know I could put multiple options in for the same down/distance etc to add variety. That helps.. now I am going to just scrap it again.. but my default playbook sucks. . I think I made a few changes before by accident and don't know how to get it to go back to original default to build off of. I may have to just start over with a new team. smh


*** I was able to find what I needed to reset my book, thanks to the help of Radu. ***
