2023 changes feedback

I did a few changes in the 2023 season for the passing game:

* WR's should not be breaking tackles as much as before
* DL pressure should have an increased impact on the accuracy of the QB and should be documented in the play-by-play

A cursory look at the scores is interesting because I wasn't expecting them to be higher with these changes - so would love to hear any thoughts on the effectiveness/lack thereof with these changes.

JDB,

I understand its pre-season and it`s so difficult to see who`s on the field on KO/Punt returns (starters,back-ups/both) but the returns ,especially on punts,seem excessively long and often.

Hoping it calms down once we get into the regular season.

just my 50p`s worth.

I like seeing the pressure notation. Could I ask for more color commentary like missed tackle/juked/stiff armed/crushing hit/jumped over/diving tackle/etc...

At first glance I'm getting about the same pressure with dline, but more sacks with lb's/safety blitzes

I will agree that I'm seeing better pressure from the LB/S blitzes. QB still seems too good to me under pressure though.

That was the first game that I actually watched.

I didn't notice much in the way of better DL/OL interaction or block shedding, seems very close to last year although it was just a single game. My team had 2 sacks and the opposing team 1. My running game was also way down on YPC but again, that might be just a game plan issue.

Had another Punt Return for a TD and I think the ST return guys hold their blocks too long still and end up bunched up.

5 fumbles.

QBs breaking tackles the way they do is still frustrating. QBs in the NFL mostly go down fast or slide, not break tackles like a RB.

I'm seeing a significant improvement in my games. I have what I would call an elite dline and last season struggled to get sacks only averaging 1 per game. During the preseason and through the first game I am seeing a significant improvement. I'm getting much better pressure on the qb and slowing the run game down, I recorded 5 sacks in my last game. I'm liking what I am seeing.

I'm going to make a tweak to this for the next game.
