AdamK: i used to dominate in tecmo bowl by passing deep every down on the left side of the field

I'm a DOS-era guy, so my game of choice was Mike Ditka's Ultimate Football on an old 386. My go-to play was to set up a pass formation, run a QB keeper downfield until all the defense was keying on me, and then throw a pass to a wide-open receiver because the game designers forgot about the whole "line of scrimmage" thing.

Once you find a bug like that in a game, it's hard to not keep exploiting it.

His secret weapon is starting Michael Vick in 2004. Unstoppable.

mikaloyd: Tommy Moo: The NFL is full of lousy coaches. It's not a meritocracy. A single actuarial scientist could absolutely dominate as a head coach. Almost none of the head coaches in the league understand risk/reward. This is why you see stupid shiat like people kneeling the ball down at the end of the half because the other team might return an interception for a TD (2% likelihood, meanwhile your likelihood of scoring at TD on a hail mary is more like 10%) and punting from the other team's 40 yard line (once you cross midfield, you should always go for it on 4th, unless you can kick a FG.)

I'm not exaggerating when I say that I could out coach anyone in the league using only math. I'd hire other guys to train the players, as that's not my specialty. I'd simply sit there and let a computer pick the highest probability play for each situation, and I would win, I promise you. But you have to be someone's buddy to be hired in the NFL. The 32 teams create the illusion of competition. The only real competition is all 32 of them colluding together to take as much money as possible from the public.

Fascinating. Groundbreaking really. Do you have a scheme for your defense too?

He's just going to hit "Ask Madden." Even if it only works on 1 drive a game, he's golden. Obviously no one is going to be able to stop his offense. Honestly it's kind of embarrassing you had to ask.
