Not to get too specific, (or divulge my strategy !) I do only run a base offense of specific plays. For each game the only thing that changes are the percentages of each play called....and the percentages of which side that play is going to ....or changing the favorite receiver. I treat this like I do coaching real football. The regular season is basically an exhibition season. So you don't have to show your hand so to speak until the playoffs. Since there is no homefield advantage I don't care if I am first or eighth.....just get into the tournament, and then it is game on ! ...and honestly, I am always open to suggestions. I talk to different owners after they get promoted or change leagues. You're right, self scouting is good !
I am not sure I understand what you mean about the boosting or ingame bonuses in the playoffs.
