Graeme Posted September 3, 2003 Report Share Posted September 3, 2003 With ESPN football coming out soon, I'm extremely tempted to pick it up. My concern is that I will play only a couple of games and never touch it again. While I'm sure the online play will help with that somewhat (I played a bit of MP ball with a coworker that was quite a lot of fun), the main reason is that I just don't understand the game of football all that well. Offense I usually find pretty fun, but passing is usually rather frustrating and I know nothing about reading a defense or it's coverage. I'll throw the ball to guy that looks wide open when I hit the button, only to have 3 defensive players jump up and swat it down before it even gets close to the intended receiver. And while I know what a goaline and shotgun formation are for, I really have no clue when I'd use a Pro-Form or I-form under which circumstances. Denfence is even worse. I have a general understanding of what the formations are for, but after that I'm lost. In the old Genesis days I'd just pick what I thought I should, then use the guy at the end of the line and try to get a sack. I obviously can't do that any more. I played a few games of Fever yesterday, and I had more success when I let go of the stick when the ball was snapped then when I tried to take control. Sooo, are there any good resources for someone like me that won't put me to sleep? I suppose just general football knowledge would help, but something that is more specific the the game might be a bit more interesting an immediatly helpful.
