Has anyone had the chance to play it yet? If so, what are your thoughts on the game and the Saints roster?

So far i've noticed:

1. Kuhn is great at catching the ball, his hands are very reliable.

2. Michael Thomas is solid, but he can't get much separation from the cb. If you know how to use him in tight coverage, then you're good to go.

3. There's a big drop off from using Brandin Cooks to using Tedd Ginn Jr. Tedd can get open, but his hands are not the best and his speed is not what Cooks' speed was.

4. I'm still trying to find out how to use Snead.

5. TLL hands are terrible, lol. On another note: Fleener is ok at getting open and catching the ball.

6. Cam is a beast!

7. The defense is more reactive and zone coverage for LBs are a lot better.

8. Kikaha is still listed as a LB, so hopefully that will change soon.

9. If a player is near the QB, you will most likely get the sack.

10. Peterson is very quick!

Moving the sliders over is a wonderful thing. :grin:

I'm only 5 games in but so far Thomas and Ginn on slant routes is money. I cant count how many picks I've thrown though. I haven't gotten use to it yet.

And yes fleener is surprisingly reliable. Do the guys who make this game even watch football? Lol

The last one I played had Brees on the cover. 2011 maybe? Is there enough improved over the past 6 years to be worth picking this up?

I would say it is. The mechanics are improved and different. Very realistic.

I realized that throwing near LBs are not as easy. The best way to pass so far is to throw away from the coverage.

I've been building up my MUT team and having a good time with it. I haven't played in a while, but this year's entry is good so far.

I finally started to get the hang of it. I started playing the franchise mode and found myself at 2-3. After I got used to throwing a little and got a running game I'm sitting at 10-3 now and tied with Atalanta in NFC south. Lol

I've had several 200 yard games with Peterson on the ground. He's been my key to success.
