I personally love it. Time Management and good Defense win lots of games.
I have had my issues with "Marty Ball" due to the fact that it lost us some key games.
It's great to get you to the big show, but to win you have to have some semblance of Balance (Unless your the best single season defense in the history of the game).
Problem is, if the defense can sell out to shut down your run game because your QB is Kordell Stewart, Tommy Maddox, Neil O'Donnell, Kent Graham...
If you have a solid talented QB, a top notch OL, reliable (Not necessarily good) WR's and a top notch defense (top 10)...
Marty Ball will take you to the AFCCG every year.... Having the ability to be balanced in the championships will bring home the lombardi.
All in all I loved Marty Ball. But I did hate when you couldn't do anything because they shut down your run game.
