155 Nickel Prowl was in a few 3-4 books, including the Niners. After they patched up some broken blitzes, mostly in Nickel Strong, Mike Scrape 3, and Dime Flat, 155 became the go to with some looping blitzes that fucked with the OL. EA had the line "look" a certain way to protect against the Nanos they were aware of, but by doing that it opened the floodgates for A gap loops. Honestly though, best D in the game last year was man 3 deep, LOL.

Been watching some streams, game seems like a refined version of 16. No one is running the ball well though, not consistently anyway.

LOL, yeah I still follow what's going on, watch a lot of streams when I'm home and doing some work, good background noise. Last year I didn't play random games outside of Draft Champs, I shut down MUT after January and only played one MUT game. Right now is the best time to play randoms, no one knows shit yet.

Edit: I used to get my ass beat when the game first went online, so I had to get better. Went on message boards and learned how to play the game. All those boards are dead, except for OSports, but twitch has revived things a bit. Still the community is toxic as fuck for the most part, but I don't think that's unique to Madden.

Running is awful. You guys definitely shouldn't defend against HB Dive.

FMT penciled me in, but I told rinse he's got dibs, his call.

Honestly, I'm upset with the Bills right now, not the org, but the players. You'd think that I wouldnt give a fuck but some of these guys are complete fucking morons, and it just gets to me. Better off running with a squad I don't emotionally care about, just start from zero.

My man Greg has a squad with the Jags this year. Lots of young talent on D.

That's assuming you beat me.

really looking forward to the run stop mechanic, hope it can help shut down runs when you know they are coming

also the auto-flip defense when someone runs trips is a dream come true!

I'm a Madden tour whore. It's honestly been more fun for me to jump to a different division every year with a different team.

I'll come back home to the AFC East one day!

So by the first page info (which is I'm sure out of date) the following teams are OPEN:

Browns - OPEN
Ravens - OPEN
Steelers - OPEN
Titans - OPEN
Raiders - OPEN
Broncos - OPEN
Redskins - OPEN
Vikings - OPEN
Bears - OPEN
Saints - OPEN
Cards - OPEN
Rams - OPEN

Here are my ratings breakdowns of these teams:

Browns - OPEN
Ravens - OPEN
Steelers - OPEN
Titans - OPEN
Raiders - OPEN
Broncos - OPEN
Redskins - OPEN
Vikings - OPEN
Bears - OPEN
Saints - OPEN
Cards - OPEN
Rams - OPEN

Browns
90+: 1
80-89: 6 (includes P)

Ravens
90+: 3
80-89: 13 (includes K, P, FB)

Stealers
90+: 3
80-89: 12 (1 is FB)

Titans
90+: 2
80-89: 13 (includes K, P, FB)

Broncos
90+: 4
80-89: 13 (includes K, P)

Raiders
90+: 1
80-89: 17 (includes P, FB)

Racists
90+: 2
80-89: 11 (includes P)

Vikings
90+: 2
80-89: 13 (includes K and WTF they have 2 80+ centers! Trade me!)

Bears
90+: 2
80-89: 8 (includes P)

Saints
90+: 3
80-89: 9 (includes P)

Cards
90+: 3
80-89: 14 (includes K, also they have a second FS who is 80 something but maybe their formations allow 3 safeties?)

Rams
90+: 1
80-89: 9 (includes P, FB)

Broncos, Raiders, Stealers and Cards are probably the best rosters out of these. Bears, Browns and Saints are all in various states of rebuild mode.
