I'm greatly enjoying revisiting this classic. However, it would be nice to know more about how to put together a good team. The game's help file tells you a little bit about what ratings are most important for which positions, but I find that some players who should be pretty good/solid based on their numbers really aren't. For instance, my offensive line has all kinds of trouble run blocking even though they all have very high strength ratings. GameFAQS has nothing of substance for this or previous iterations of the series.
Does anyone know where to find more information on how the game crunches the numbers under the hood?
Another good example of something that would be nice to know: what expectations can you have out of training camp based on certain percentages?
OK, separate from all of the above: a frustration. I usually just do GM/roster kind of moves and let the computer handle all play-calling and play-executing. However, my team of choice seems to be allergic to nickel packages. The opposing team will have a bunch of wide receivers out and my coach will try to cover them with LB's, which usually doesn't go well. Very annoying!
