CAG NFL team in the SFL

 

There was an opening in the cpu vs cpu Simulation Football League (SFL) for an expansion franchise. I filed an expansion application and beat out an entry for a Chicago based franchise. Details about the team are below. We need your input and participation. Let's see if we can win the SFL Championship together!

 

 

Players will watch themselves on TV, follow their very detailed stats and compete for weekly and season honors. Coordinators will set game plans, watch games from the owners box and make adjustments according. We are hoping to feature youtube highlight videos that will be posted at CAG. Get in the game so you can watch yourself play or see how your offensive or defensive unit fared for the week.

 

Info:

 

Simulation Football League (SFL)

 

 

 

 

Baltimore Crabs

(this city is famous for steamed crabs from the Chesapeake Bay;

almost every area has their own crab house)

 

Owner (with GM duties): tjspeaks

 

Applications are now being accepted.

We will have a SFL season thread here at CAG (and some info at the CAG NFL website). We will be filling this team with CAG NFL coach CAPs. Before I assign you your least favorite number or make you left handed, I want to give you the opportunity to personalize your CAP! We have 10 player positions (SFL uses 10 CAPs per team so they can build 2 teams with 20 CAP limitation) and 2 coordinator positions to fill. This is your opportunity to select your desired position, likeness, name, uniform number, bio, etc. We also need a good offensive mind and a good defensive mind to run each side of the ball. Watch your plan unfold live on Twitch.tv.

 

 

As a player, you can follow your stats as the season progresses. You may want to watch some broadcasts and hear the announcer (play by play by Cameron Irvine) call out your real name. These games are broadcast live and also recorded to view on demand anytime. Accurate detailed stats will be kept and made available for each player and for each unit (offense & defense). As a coordinator, you will be running your side of the ball week to week, scouting the next opponent and making any adjustments you deem necessary to win the game.

 

 

You can apply for 2 player positions (one MUST be a bronze level position) and/or coordinator positions. You can be a player and a coordinator. Your chances of being a coordinator are improved if you are not a player/coach.

 

Note: Decisions will be made and announced when finalized. The league has a set salary cap and structure. Your salary will be $1M per ability per season. Please do not appeal for more salary. ;) We are bound by league terms and conditions. By applying, you agree to accept either one of the two positions you have applied for. Coordinators are paid via non cap funds $750K per season.

 

Note on coordinators:

Offensive and defensive coordinators are performance based positions. You sign up knowing you will be fired when your performance isn't up to par for an extended period. You agree there will be no hard feelings and our good relationship will continue after you are fired. Thick skinned coaches only need apply. :pride:

Coordinators:

 

1. Offensive coordinator:

 

DUTIES:

 

Primary: (1) implement your initial playbook (100 plays or so), edit playbook each week (if needed) depending on success and matchup. Teams can make 20 additions/subtractions per week to their offense playbook (can have 100-150 plays). Note: no subs are permitted, so if you run a 4 WR set, perhaps look for one where the HB is in there! Your main tasks: select the best plays and make the best use of your personnel (select the plays that include, not exclude your stars).

 

Other duties: (2) set & edit generic packages (if deemed necessary). (3) Provide 3 initial audibles. Change audibles as needed. (4) Scout upcoming opponent and set all of the above to give the team the best chance to win the game. (5) determine final ability for a few CAPs. (6) Set height & weight for the CAPs on your side of the ball (realistic football standards per that position)

 

The head coach has initially set offensive generics packages as follows:

 

*Offensive linemen: balanced

*Quarterbacks: balanced

Receivers: possession

*Running backs: balanced

 

Offensive coordinator has full control over ones with an asterisk

 

 

2. Defensive coordinator:

 

DUTIES:

 

Primary: (1) implement your 35-50 play playbook, edit each week (if needed) depending on success and matchup. Teams can make 10 additions/subtractions per week to their defense playbook (if deemed necessary). Note: no subs are permitted, suggest avoiding 3-3 nickel and 3-2 dime because MLB is in there (our 2 star OLB's will not be in there). Q: Should we make the gold OLB an ILB or should we choose plays where this is not an issue? We never want our gold LB off the field! I think we need both at OLB to hinder other teams gold HBs (suggest no 3-3 or 3-2).

Your main tasks: select the best plays and make the best use of your personnel (select the plays that include, not exclude your stars).

 

Other duties: (2) set & edit generic packages (if deemed necessary). (3) Provide 3 initial audibles. Change audibles as needed. (4) Scout upcoming opponent and set all of the above to give the team the best chance to win the game. (5) determine final ability for a few CAPs,

(6) Set height & weight for the CAPs on your side of the ball (realistic football standards per that position)

 

Head coach has initially set defensive generics packages as follows:

 

Defensive linemen: pass rush

* Linebackers: balanced

Cornerbacks: balanced

* Safeties: coverage

 

Defensive coordinator has full control over ones with an asterisk

 

2lw56ps.png

Players:

 

To apply - choose 2 positions of interest (1 must be a bronze level) and detail your last name & first name (can be your real name, XBL name -but it needs to sound like a real human name. note: your name does NOT have to be in the database, the play by play announcer will announce your name - IF possible, prefer names that will help us ID you. e.g. Mike Dazzo with uniform #7... name used must be approved by owner), hand (left or right), uniform number, skin (dark, med or light) and likeness (face type).

 

Also (if desired or we can make one up for you) provide a brief write up/bio about your (fictional or real) college football experience or other info that could help you get signed (can you kill bears with your bare hands? do you chase deer on foot on the weekends? what college? awards? what area are you from? what nickname did you earn for your football exploits? etc.) You can do this for both positions applied for. We will add to your bio if needed. This info will be published on the SFL website. Note: if you get injured you could be out for many games or season. You will still get paid per your contract. The next generic up will fill your shoes until/if you return.

 

Top performers at each position will receive

SLF 1st or 2nd Team honors.

 

Positions we will fill with CAG NFL coach CAPs:

 

Offense:

 

 

 

 

gold: HB (cutback, branching tackles, * workhorse, speed burner, or quick feet)

silver: QB (leadership, * pocket passer or quick release)

silver: WR (acrobatic catches, * route god, quick feet or deep threat)

bronze: WR (acrobatic catches)

 

* coordinator decides final ability

*** possession generics should provide a decent pass catching TE and an OK 3rd WR

(keep this in mind when setting plays, there are no subs)

 

 

Defense:

 

gold: OLB (leadership, * quick feet or coverage, *footsteps or speed burner or closing speed)

silver: SS (footsteps, * closing speed, coverage or clutch)

bronze: CB (coverage)

bronze: CB (coverage)

bronze: LB (* pass rush bonus or quick feet)

bronze: FS (closing speed)

 

* coordinator decides final ability

*** pass rushing Dlinemen should provide occasional QB sacks/ pressure

(there are no subs, keep this in mind when setting plays, keep both LBs on the field, should we make bronze LB an ILB?)

 

 

 

just an example:

--------------------------------------

 

Note:

 

If 5 guys apply for the gold HB, you have just a 20% change of landing that position.

If only 2 guys go for the silver SS, you have a 50% change of landing that position.

So as you apply for 1 bronze and another gold/silver slot, keep the odds in mind.

 

Player & coordinator (breaking news) announcements will be made here, so stay tuned.

 

Thank you for your interest & participation!

Coach would like to apply for the both the offensive and defensive coordinator positions.

On offense, he is well known for ability to push the pace, and he likes to operate out of quads and trips set to spread the field and attempt to dictate what formations the defense has to run. At that point, he will trust his quarterback to read the box and audible if needed. Given his affinity to spread the field and utilize multiple receivers, it is no surprise that the best real-life comparison is Josh McDaniels, the man he was groomed under.

On the defensive side of the ball, he is best known for playing to his personnel. He has no one favorite scheme or strategy. He certainly feels he knows the game, however, he doesn't predetermine his defensive scheme. He evaluates his personnel and then adapts to what he has. If he has weaker personnel, he will implement a bend-but-don't-break defense. If given some talent, he will get creative and roll/shade coverages to take away the offense's best weapons. While learning offense under McDaniels, he picked up his defensive acumen from Bill Belichick, and it's no wonder their approaches are similar.

Although the next season of SFL doesn't kick off for awhile, we do want to get the team together ASAP for planning and promotional purposes.

Note all 10 player positions and both coordinators will be CAG NFL coach CAPs. This is your chance to select your likeness, positions, number, etc. There will be game highlights posted here. This is your chance to be a coordinator and watch your strategy unfold before your eyes or live the dream of seeing yourself compete on the field for a championship.

The last time I did Run&Shoot he ended up looking like this, you don't want that to happen to you on

Twitch.tv, Youtube and the CAG forums. So tell us how you want to look and what name you want called out during the games. This is going to be an enjoyable ride as a team!

I would like to apply for the defensive Coordinator position. I actually have a lot of experience doing exactly what I would be doing. On goallineblitz.com, we do exactly what the position entails, watch film and put in plays for a game that is simmed. Also I believe I have a very good defense that is not at all dependent on stick skills, which not many other people can say I think. But if I get the job, can I have an assistant to help me? I have a plan for how to scout games and input defenses but I like to work collaboratively. I think I will get good results working with one other person.

Mr. tpaterniti,

Thank you for your interest. We have a budget of $200K for an assistant. You can recruit your own defensive coordinator assistant. It could even be a player/coach since they may desire to watch film anyway. All the opponents games will be on demand so you will have plenty to review. I have proposed adding the double team check-box to the league (not currently an option). It would be set all game. As you can see, we have invested heavily into the defense. You have an extensive resume! You sound like a great fit.

Post #2 will be updated as we receive applications.

So you, TJ will play with our names? I would like to aplly for QB, FS, Am I right?

You can submit your desired name, we'll work with you if required. We would like your name to be similar to what we know you as, but it would have to be a somewhat believable name since it will be repeated in the games many times. We gave the example Mike Dazzo (#7). We'll have to work with NTQ. Osborne is great... maybe go with your real first name if that is good for you. #34 might be a good uniform number for you.

Have you down for the 2 positions - will update post #2. Thanks!

It would be "Joe Lynn". For QB #12, FS #26. Is it good?

Joe Lynn Osborne or Joe Lynn?

Sounds good (either one), when you have time, submit other info here. Thanks.
