    Any of you plannning on downloading your upcoming opponent's VIP to scout them. Granted, the way the VIP plays isn't that accurate, but it does give you a good idea of what plays they like to run.

    That reminds me, I need to get online and run the flee flicker on every play for 8 straight games so that my VIP doesn't reveal anything about my true playing style.

    I downloaded Jman's VIP when I was going to play him in another league. It had him kicking off at like 10% power each time. Weird. It wasn't accurate at all but that may be because it was so early in our 2k5 playing time.

    I will try it out again.

    I played against XBJs VIP when we first started talking about VIPs, and I don't think they're very accurate. His VIP stalled on every down until the last 2 seconds on the clock. Does he do this in real games?

    I honestly think playing other VIPs is better than playing against the coaches. You get a lot better feel for the way your opponent is going to play the game.

    Yeah, the game play of the VIP is kind of quirky. I'll just download it to get a taste of my opponent's play selection habits.

    Weird, weird things with the VIP... whenever I download my own, I get crazy percentages, like 679% hot route, etc. I don't know, I don't think they are very useful at all mainly because they are never accurate.
