"Well, Gates, we'll talk soon enough on that. Good luck this season."

GM Strike Guy moves across the scene in question by the barbecue being cooked up accordingly and the visage of misery that is GM Black Death before approaching GM Pancho and GM Dazz respectively.

"That Maxley deal is going to make someone even richer in the next couple of seasons in the secondary, that's for sure. Anyways, Dazz, a pleasure as always. Pancho, congrats on winning another one on your end. How's the offseason been so far, gentlemen?"

The Elliott deal is the one that's going to have agents licking their lips. Offseason has been going pretty well so far thanks. Pretty much have my roster there, just need to add a bit more depth. And to sort out my QB question but I can see that dragging past the camps.

Excuse me guys one second. Dazz my boy! I appreciate the kind words even though they come through gritted teeth. So considering we have some of the best defensive players in the game how do you feel about the defensive market being set? Lot of money being thrown around.

I'm mainly grateful to GM Jon for having signed up Stevens and Glass for as long as he did. Some of these deals being handed out are going to cripple teams in the long run though. Of course that just makes this more important.

GM Dazz gestures towards the players being put through the drills

GM Dazz arrives with his coaches and scouts and makes his way towards the field. He stands at the edge of the action and watches the players warming up for a few minutes. A few words with his team later and he's off to join the rest of the GMs. He nods politely in greeting to most before shaking his head towards GM Pancho.

If it wasn't for a single fumble towards the end of our game.... honestly though, congratulations on a great end to the season.

Thank you Coach. Welcome to DC. I'm certain we'll do great things here.

Lolly, could you please get Hector Houser for me?
-------

Hector, you had a great season again last year. It was just a shame to see it end with injury. I'm assuming that was a big part of why you decided to retire in the end. A real shame though, I think you had another 2 or 3 seasons left in you. Your experience in the locker-room was a huge benefit to us last season and I really don't want to lose that. I've already spoken to Coach Prince about you and he'd love to have you on his staff. Would you take a 3 year deal at $1m to stay here in DC as Assistant Coach?

I should do my due diligence and interview other coaches but to be honest, that sort of balance that you talk about is what I think this team was missing towards the end of last season. We've worked together before, too, so we both know what to expect. I'd like to offer you the job for 3 years at $6m per year.

Thank you for the information, Lolly. I hope you enjoyed your time off. Could you get Coach Thompson for me please?
--------

Coach, I've given things a lot of thought since our last conversation. You did well with the offence we asked you to play. We moved the ball very well but unfortunately we just weren't scoring enough points. I think we need a new approach on offence this season and I just don't think your style is going to work with the changes I want to make. I want to thank you for your service this past season but I'm afraid we're going to go in another direction for season 11.
-------
(If I'm not required to respond to Thompson and in the interest of speeding things up)

Lolly, could you get Dallas Prince for me please?
-------

Dallas, it's good to speak to you again. I'm surprised GM Eli hasn't retained your services this season but his loss is my gain, I hope. I like what you did with King Carmazzi and David Jordan in Cleveland. Carmazzi looks like a different QB here already. I was going to offer you the job of Assistant Coach here but I'm in need of a new Offensive Coordinator. I think part of our problem last season was that we were taking too many plays to get down field and that gave opportunities for the opposition to force turnovers. We have a young team here with a fantastic o-line, superstar RB, huge potential at WR and future stars at QB. I know the work you can do with a QB and you have a reputation for running a balanced, normal paced offence. What I'd like to know is how you would get the most out of the talent on this roster.

I don't expect you to have the definitive answer right now. What I expect you to have are ideas to tackle the issue next year. Doing the same again and expecting different results is madness. It's also not good enough.
Let's try this from a different angle. If you were interviewing for the OC position here next year and I asked you how you'd improve this underperforming offence, what would you say?

------

Lolly, could I see Coach Thompson please?

Coach, that was a tough way to drop out of the playoffs. It was the same frailties that cost us games during the season too. We were great at marching the ball down the field but then mistakes caused us to come away with nothing from it. Why are we turning the ball over and dropping the ball as often as we are? How would you address that next season?

35
General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM : DC COBRAS
« on: September 24, 2018, 05:57:28 PM »
It is extremely frustrating. We were better in yardage, better in first downs, controlled possession but still lost the game. We just can't seem to look after the ball. Still, there's a lot to take encouragement from. Overall the team performed well and I expect continued improvement next season. I think I've learned that we need to be more direct in the playoffs but there's no need for drastic change.
I'm going to let Brewster leave at the end of his contract so I can bring in a QB Coach to help our young QBs develop. I'm not looking to get rid of him but If I get a good enough offer for Rizzo I think Carmazzi will be our starter. Defensively we possibly need a number 3 LB and a 3 or 4 CB. Though Schofield seemed to improve as the season went on. I don't really see any other areas where we desperately need to improve.
Do you agree with my assessment or would you approach the off-season differently?

If he continues to develop like he has done and has a good preseason he absolutely has a chance. If Rizzo continues to develop like he has done and has a good preseason then he also has a great chance of continuing as our starting QB.

« on: September 24, 2018, 03:42:51 AM »
I think it's entirely unfair to try and blame this loss on one moment or one player. It was Sasser earlier in the season too. Carmazzi played a good game and has been excellent since stepping in for Rizzo against Michigan. We had injuries to other key starters too. Houser was missing, Herzog wa missing. I don't hear you asking about whether they would have made a difference. King Carmazzi was let down at the start of his pro career and you in the media seem determined that he never recovers from that. I think he deserves some recognition for the job he's done considering the difficult situation he had to step into. I suppose that doesn't make such good headlines for you vultures though.

Unless you lot decide to act like professionals and have a serious question for me I think we're done here.

Polling Place / Re: S10 AWARDS - DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
« on: September 23, 2018, 06:24:00 PM »
3 points to make here Jon:

1. I never argued against Stevens in S7. My argument was that interceptions were more important than sacks or TFL.
2. In S7 I voted for Glass despite Taylor being from my team. 
3. S7 was 3 seasons ago. Of course my view on players is going to change.

I actually agree with the point you were making in S7. This shouldn't just be about the stats. I'm not saying Hagan is undeserving. It's a historic season for him so I can understand the award going his way. I just think that Stevens does more for his team. He's not just a tackler but he's a leader and the heart of that team, as well as the heart of the all-star team.

42
Polling Place / Re: S10 AWARDS - DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
« on: September 23, 2018, 05:15:51 PM »
You're all wrong. 177 tackles, 20 pass disruptions and a defence full of rookies around Stevens. Hagan was on a team that was massively over cap and much of that pumped into the defence. When Hagan wins the award there needs to be a * next to his name.

Burger and Lai are pretty similar but Lai plays on a better team and in the weaker conference so that makes Burger's stats more impressive to me.

S10 WEEK 19 - ELIMINATED

1. Talk about your exit from the playoffs, what does it mean for you and your team going forward?

This game pretty much summed up our season. We were dominant in yards, time of possession and 1st downs and then we lost the game because we gave up too many fumbles. It's frustrating but there's nothing that can be done about it now. Congratulations to Alabama for a game well managed. As for what the loss means for our team going forward... progress. After 2 years on the outside we returned to the playoffs on the first try under the new regime. My goal for this team was to make it further but I'm not too disappointed with the season we've had. You have to remember that we have a lot of rookies in key positions and we'd lost important players to injury coming into the playoffs. This team is only going to get better next year so I'm excited about what can be achieved here. 

2. What is next for this franchise?

Next we need to consolidate this good start to this project and develop the young lads we have on the roster. There were a few games this year that we lost when we really shouldn't have so we need to work on the things that cost us... fumbles and failures to capitalise on our scoring chances. If we can improve in these areas there's no reason why we can't win this division next year.

3. Do you think you played your best football this week?

No, I don't. In a lot of aspects we did but we were better offensively in the last two regular season games than we were this week. Again, injuries and the limited game time for some of our players played their part in that. The best is yet to come and that has to be a scary prospect for our rivals.

4. Do you expect to make major changes in the off-season?

I'll need to speak to the coaching staff about that. I don't see us making sweeping changes but there will be tweaks to the roster and our system to try and get the best out of this team.

I have to say, you're all approaching this very negatively and I think that's extremely unfair to the efforts and performances this team has put in over the year. Yes, losing in the first playoff round is disappointing but it's certainly not doom and gloom. DC are back, that's what needs to be taken away from this playoff appearance.

He's covered for Rizzo well since stepping in and I have a lot of faith in this kid. He'll be hungry to prove he's just as good as the guy drafted 1 place ahead of him over in Alabama too. The spotlight may be on him this week but we need to make sure we're set up to support him. I think the way we're currently set up should help to do that. If we take away Ortega's options he's prone to trying to force things and we could take advantage of that. what we need to watch out for is him taking off with the ball and Robles. We could up the blitz to try and counter their run but I'm leaning towards a strategy of containing rather than trying too hard to disrupt. Does that make sense?

S10 WEEK 18 - PLAYOFF

1. With the playoffs starting, what is your number one priority as the GM?

Obviously my number one priority as the GM is to win the next game. What else would I prioritise over that? At this stage of the season it's winner stays on so if you're going to focus on performance or development or anything else then you have your priorities all wrong. I don't care how we win it as long as we win. What I'd rather talk about is the performance of my team in the final week of the season. Carmazzi had his first start for us and led the team to a convincing victory on the road, with us scoring over 40 points. What that gives him is extra confidence in his abilities and it gives us momentum going into the playoffs.

2. Who was your regular season MVP for the league, and also on your own team?

I think you're probably looking at the 3 main contenders for league MVP is this game. Robles seems to have found the fountain of youth and has been breaking records once again. Anthony Smith has broken his own pancakes record and has led our offensive line in a very impressive season for them as a group. Larry Stevens has been an absolute beast all season and demonstrated his MVP level talent at the All Star Game too.

3. What is the biggest match up this week for your game ?

I think the stats make it very clear that Robles is hugely important for Alabama. We will need to keep him relatively quiet if we want to win this game and Larry Stevens is the perfect guy for the job. It's going to be fascinating watching those two duel this week.

4. What will it take to advance to the next round of the playoffs?

It is going to take us playing at our very best to advance through any stage of the playoffs. Alabama are a great team with a great history and they are hungry to win an Impact Bowl for their HC and for GM Pancho. They will fight us for every inch on that field so we need to be up for that battle. We're hungry for this too though. This franchise has a tradition of winning and so the past 2 years of struggle under GM Jon have been painful for the whole organisation. Getting here to the playoffs helps to ease some of that but we won't feel like we've achieved what this team should be achieving until we bring the championship back home to DC. If we play our game the way I know we can then we can beat anybody in this league.

King, I won't keep you long but I wanted to congratulate you on your performance this past week. I know that's not how anyone wants to get their chance but you took it well. This week we're asking to you start. This is a great opportunity for you to go out and make it very difficult for me not to start you in the playoffs.
