Billy Beane wishes he had the knowledge of bruddog. As do Paul DePodesta, JP Ricciardi, and David Forst. 

He wishes as i do Jeremy Giambi slid. He probably hates Justin Verlander too.

I have one more strategy question. Is there a diagram somewhere that maybe bruddog made that shows where each wr and rb is lined up preplay? I know I should probably know this already and eventually I will, but sometimes if I want to throw to a particular receiver I'm not sure of which route they were on to start the play, thus not knowing exactly who I'm throwing to.  For example, does WR1 always lineup at the top of the screen in every formation?

you're gonna need more help than a diagram.

As long as I know who is lining up where I'll be fine. I always thought WR1 was at the top of the screen but im not 100% sure of that.

And by fine I mean I'll be ok to play. I have no delusions of grandeur like I'm sure a lot of tournament n00bs have that think they are going to kick ass in the tournament. Since I've become serious about playing I've gotten a lot better but I certainly have a long way to go. My goal this year is to win one game. Anything else is just house money.

On his Tecmo 101 site Mort has a pre snap diagram with labels for the r & s lineup. That's what I needed.

Since you're cramming, another thing to practice/discover is which plays are "blitz" proof with a hot route.  Offset Flare E (the offset I play in the 2nd play slot) has a built in hot route to the RB, so you can throw to him on picked play to at least avoid a sack.

This is key - some pass plays have 2 or even 3 call safe receivers. I try to put as many call safe receivers in my playbook as possible. If you are practing alone choose to play Man vs Coa and always have the Coa player pick the same play as you.  Then practice counting taps to call safe receivers to make sure you can get the pass off in time.

 

Note: If you have QB Eagles, a lot more pass plays can become "call safe" that aren't typically...

My "call safe" word with QB Eagles is paprika.

From Wikipedia:

"In the United States, paprika is frequently sprinkled raw on foods as a garnish, but the flavor is more effectively pronounced by heating it in oil."

 

Tecmo translation - blitz QB eagles at your own peril
