Inside the 5 yd line

Seems that teams pretty much will run the ball 3 times when inside the 5 yrd line most of the time. I know I have a couple teams that dont run the ball well and wondering if its possible to adjust this better when we have a first and goal to adjust to more short passes. I have tried setting this for inside the 20 but never fails that once inside the 5 its run run run then FG attempt

Thanks for the post - hopefully we can figure out why you're seeing this. There is no special logic that kicks in for goal-to-go situations, so it should be pulling completely from your game plan. Looking in the DB I see a pretty balanced spread:

31% Outside Run
26% Inside Run
28% Short Pass
13% Medium Pass
2% Long Pass

In your game planning screen, if you click on "View Plays" for that last quadrant (most likely inside the 5 will be considered "short" unless you're having a really, really bad day offensively, in which case you probably won't be inside the 5 very often) you should see the weight for each play in that situation - are your passing plays weighted close to the running plays? Be sure to look at your personnel as well when making adjustments - if you load the recommended personnel, the AI will put more emphasis on heavy personnel which will tilt the play calls toward the running plays.

Ahhhh...yes it was my bad on that. I wasnt using the short logic just the 1st,2nd,3rd down settings overall.
