"Marion, we're implementing an attacking 3-4 defense here in Oakland.  Do you have any experience coaching the 3-4?"

I've actually worked in 3-4 and 4-3 schemes in the past, I believe my style works in any set..

My first 8 years in football were in Canada, but I was good there... I came to HIFL in Season 1 and was drafted in the 6th round of expansion by DC. 16 game starter in that year, I had 69 tackles 3 sacks 4 INTs 11 pass break ups and 1 Touchdown.  After that season, I just didn't feel like I had the speed to play anymore, so I retired and moved back to Utah to coach at Southern Utah, been there ever since..

"Woodrow Bray, please..."

"Coach Bray, rumor has it you're a smash mouth, power football team.  That would certainly be something that we could see ourselves running here in Oakland.  Can you give me a little more information on your background as a player and/or a coach?"

I went to college in Missouri, played 7 years in the pros, made a pro bowl when I was younger, since I retired I've been working as an O-line coach, now I'm ready to step up as an OC, I Formation with a power run game is my favorite scheme..

"I think you're the guy to lead that for us - 3 years, $3 million as OC?"

Back in Season 1 I was drafted in the 18th round of expansion.  I was the starting SS for Orlando for Season 1. I played all 16 games, made 50 tackles and had 1 sack and 1 INT for a TD... The next season I was cut, signed by Lincoln and cut again before the season started... never played again.  Been coaching as a coordinator for Siena ever since. I run a 4-3 that plays conservative coverage instead of blitzing.

Hello GM Rebel, Mr. Caesar has asked me to inform you that we have a $11MM 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.

Now before you start, let me introduce myself.  I'm Eli Harris.  I don't play games, I don't do bidding wars, I simply give our asking price and I will hear one counter offer. I have a lot of work to do around the league today, so let's get this done.

Farrow is looking for 4 years, 4.5MM and .5MM in PR

"Those terms are agreeable but I've got something I want to run by te two of you first.  Thomas is a physical player - which is one of the reasons we wanted him in our defense.  But we want to shift him to CB and let him use some of that size and physical nature to push some receivers around at the LOS."

"If that's not something Thomas is interested in doing, we will work him in the safety position. Just wanted to be upfront with our plans."
