  • Duke posted a few times. Still looking for which ratings matter most when building players in CFM. XP distribution is important and drafting. Is play recognition more important than awareness? Block shed more important than finesse and power moves? Would appreciate your feedback on how the ratings affect the game.

  • Mail bag:
    So we all know the plays and how to execute them. I think the people would benefit most from a mailbag episode of what you’re (Duke) thinking when you know your opponent is probably running cover 3 or or cover 2. I know some plays in the schemes say to run certain plays against certain coverages but do we just keep running the same play until the opponent switches defense? In short, what are the tendencies of each coverage and what are you thinking when you call your plays? Thanks
