TEAM : DC COBRAS
« on: October 12, 2014, 02:44:19 PM »



Team Information
City: Washington, DC
Conference: Eastern
Division: North
Team Owner: Hershel Kiss
Team Secretary: Lolly Pops

Official Colors:

Orange (#F95602)
Black (#111111)

Team History:
The DC Cobras are a team based out of Washington DC; owned by esteemed candy maker Hershel Kiss, the team is funded by the ridiculously successful Chocolate factory.  Mr. Kiss is very... eccentric and frankly some may suspect that he uses his chocolate factory as a front for a major drug trafficking operation, but at the end of the day he runs and funds the Cobras, and that is all that matters.  The Cobras have always had a solid defense, in S1 and S2 they had the #1 defense in football, but have since seen that degrade more towards the mid-tier (yards allowed increased, but points allowed remained #2 in the league) but the team has never had a potent offense.  Each season the Cobras have seen their Passing Yards per game average decline all the way to a ridiculously bad 167 yards per game last season.  DC is the only franchise never to make the HIFL post-season after finishing last in the east every season with only Tombstone having a worse record at any time.  in S1 the team went 6-10, in S2 they fell to 4-12 and have gone 6-10 in each of the past two seasons as well.  DC needs a strong GM to fix this team, but the ownership knows it will take time to turn the franchise around. Management hopes that 2nd year QB Christian Sullivan can shoulder the load under center and on defense they have a solid young leader at Linebacker in Larry Stevens the #2 overall pick in the S3 draft who at 6'5 is a dominant pass rusher and tackler.

Welcome to Chocolate City, Everyone follow me into a great world of imagination, we here in DC want to strike hard and fast, but it's gotta be sweet! Let's make it Chocolate Rain!






We need help, our team is terrible.  We've been dead last in the East every season!  that's made us the worst team in the league!

Greetings Mr. Kiss, allow me to introduce myself.

The name is Jon Hallquist. And I'm currently GM of the FBL's Wyoming Wolves and was former GM of the now defunct, Seattle Reign. I have GM'd championship winning teams in both leagues. And just like I turned around a struggling franchise in Wyoming, I'd love to try my hand at turning this one around as well.

DC needs a strong GM to turn this franchise around and get fans back in the seats with something that they can be proud to cheer for. That GM is me! My resume speaks for itself, Mr. Kiss.

Together, you and I will change DC from a laughing joke into one of the premier franchises in the HIFL!

How can I say no to a GM with 3 Championship rings on?  You have almost as much bling as I do!

The job is yours, Just stay out of my chocolate fountain!

If you have any questions on the teams current personnel talk it over with Lolly, she does all that, I've got to go back and add some powdered "sugar" to my candies.

"Hey Lolly, I was wondering if you can get me up to speed on our offense first. Let's start with the Quarterbacks. Christian Sullivan... did he start for us last season? And do we have any other QB's on the depth chart behind him currently?"

Last season we started 4th round draft pick Allen Ayala.  He went 275 for 470 for 2541 yards 9 TDs and 9 INTs. He was sacked 29 times, had 15 plays for 20+ yards and 3 plays for 40+ 

His rookie deal was only for one year so he is now able to sign anywhere as a free agent.

Our current crop of QB's is made up of 3 more young QB's.  Michael Royal (25) was drafted by us in the 3rd round in S3 out of Oregon State. He has never taken an HIFL snap, but he has very good arm strength, a good football IQ and decent accuracy from what scouts had said.

1 round later in the S3 draft, we took Mervin Patton (24) out of Valparaiso, he threw 19 of 28 for 186 yards and 1 TD, but was also sacked 5 times. His football IQ is off the charts, but his arm strength is average and his accuracy is slightly above average. Christian Sullivan (24) was our 3rd round draft pick this past season out of Alabama.  He is 6'2 244, he went 12 for 26 for 132 yards 1 TD and 1 INT. He has 3 years on his deal, he has average arm strength but very good football IQ and borderline elite accuracy. Their have been questions about his ability to lead however.

Royal is signed for 2 seasons, Patton is on the final year of his rookie deal, and like I said, Sullivan is signed for 3 more years.

John Lee (28) is our best guard, he recorded 35 pancakes while giving up 4 sacks last season. He is constantly praised for his work ethic and competitiveness, he pass blocks better than he run blocks, but does both at an above average grade, his strength is top tier. Our other guard is 29 year old John Marcus who is as strong as an ox, but has terrible technique as both a pass and run blocker. He was a back up last season.

Our top tackle is Harold Bergstrom (28) he recorded 46 pancakes and gave up 5 sacks, he is one of the hardest working players in the league, and his pass blocking is considered to be good. His run blocking is less stellar, but still considered average. He is also a very smart player.  Our other tackle is a S3 second round draft pick. We project him to become a solid starter, but right now he is below average blocking for the run and average in pass protection, his strength is very good, but some do question his competitiveness and work ethic. He gave up 11 sacks last year with 34 pancake blocks, after giving up no sacks in his rookie campaign. The only back up tackle we have right now is 25 year old Brian Smith, he started 7 games in S3 giving up 1 sack with 15 pancakes.

OUr centers are Damon Glover (28), who has been our starter for the past two seasons giving up only 3 sacks with 39 pancakes. His strength is above average but his run blocking is near the upper crust in the game, his pass blocking is below average however. Behind him is Otis Wingate (25) a S2 1st round pick from Long Beach.  He never lived up to his billing despite his above slightly above average grades at both pass and run blocking. Most people blame it on his poor work ethic which is why has only started 1 game in his 3 year career despite his first round draft grade.

Well hello their son!  Jim Haas here and I wanna thank you for welcomin' me into your office!   

I've never been a pro head coach before, but I ran the offense for Dallas a few years back, while I was their they lead the league in rushing. After a regime change, I headed home to Oklahoma and became head coach at Oklahoma University.  I believe in exposing the defense with strong offensive line play, nobody can believe in a defense when you expose it by dominating the front seven with great blocks!

"I am all for running the football. My personal philosphy is to control the time of possession and I agree... games are won and lost in the trenches. In your time as offensive coordinator for Dallas and Head Coach for OU, what type of role did your QB have?"

In Dallas, we had a world beater kid there, so I didn't have to do much coaching him up, he was already gifted. At QB in Oklahoma I have a kid who can make some good throws, but is more of a game manager, think about a kid like that McCarron boy was in the SEC.

"Lolly, can we get Shaun Saint on the line please."

"Hey Coach Saint, I'm GM Jon of the DC Cobras. I'm currently in the interviewing process for a Head Coach here. I've heard from word of mouth that you are a spread offense specialist. My question to you is with the QB's we have on our roster currently... do you think any of them possess the talent to run your offense if you were to become head coach here?"

"Which only means our gain, Coach! Let me cut right to the chase Coach, we're in need of a Head Coach to change this franchise around from being perennial cellar dwellers, to consistent championship contenders. The new age of this sport is changing rapidly and I think a spread offensive style is not only what wins football games... but it's the type of play fans want to see as well. My question to you is with the QB's we have on our roster currently... do you think any of them possess the talent to run your offense if you were to become head coach here?"

I like the physical makeup of Christian Sullivan. I've only seen tape, but his tools seem to be there, if we work on his arm strength I think he can become a strong player in my system..

"Well, that's certainly good news to hear. That's something we can defintely do. In terms of running the football, I know you like to focus on the pass and have speed in the skill positions... but when we do run the football, do you prefer to run it out of the spread formation on read options... or something else?"

I'm not big on the option, I'd rather have a pocket passer who can move in the pocket.  I find ways to run from the spread, but can also tone in down and run more basic sets from the shotgun and/or i formation when needed..

Daunte Blank is a guy I coached when he was in college, he was my QB, he's looking to get into the business of coaching and I think he understands my system well enough to be a great coordinator under my wing.

I played football for 18 years as a starter, spent my last two as the anchor in the back of the St. Paul secondary. 187 tackles in those two years with 5 sacks and 5 picks, 3 I brought back to the house, I live and breathe this game, I wanted to make the HOF, and I hope I do one day from my 16 years in another league, but now I want to develop the next great crop of secondary players, I love running out of the nickle with a slight lean towards the blitz.. I can teach the safeties to play smarter football, and help them get through the gaps when they do blitz.

If it's 4 years you want, 5MM is the salary, I could do 3 years at 4.5 though, I want to be here, but I don't want to commit to a deal and then be left behind if the market changes, I know it's not all about money, but you never know when you're out of this league.

Hello GM Jon, Mr. Kiss has asked me to inform you that we have a $10MM budget for scouting this off-season, this is all covered by him and will not affect our budget for the rest of the season.  Please remember this scouting money is for both the college draft and free agents, plan wisely.  If you need a refresher on how much scouting costs, it is on page 9 of your GM handbook... http://espnsportssims.net/index.php?topic=1155.msg28962#msg28962

Please be advised, scouting trips are unavailable due to the college season being over.

We are required to attend the combine before we can do any interviews or workouts after the combine, if you have any questions please feel free to ask, I'll be at my desk... working...

YOUR COACHING STAFF STANDS BY IN ANTICIPATION OF THE DRAFT.  THEY FEEL WORRIED WHEN THEY SEE YOUR DRAFT BOARD IS COMPLETELY EMPTY.

GM JON POLISHES HIS THREE CHAMPIONSHIP RINGS WHILE RAISING HIS EYEBROW TOWARDS HIS COACHES.

"Relax gents, you know you can count on me. This draft is our first steps in turning this franchise around. We got work to do, coaches!

"Hey Drew, thanks for taking my call. As you know, we have drafted your client, Brett Myers. I'll throw out the first offer and we'll work from there. 5 year, $5 million, $1 million PR. How does that work?"
