While I think PBP "issues" are relatively minor annoyances, especially when compared to some of the logic flaws in the engine, I think the idea of community contributions to the PBP text is an excellent idea. I'm not sure if it was in a DevChat or a forum post, but oriole himself said he could use some suggestions for improving the play descriptions.
Some of what you are looking for *is* in there. For example, you might see a quarterback "throws to a wide open" receiver, or "throws to a covered" receiver. There's just not enough, and certainly not enough variety.
With that in mind, here's some ideas to get things started:
%QUARTERBACK% barely avoids the sack, and scrambles out of the pocket.
%QUARTERBACK% is hit as he releases the ball.
The ball hits %RECEIVER% in the hands and he drops it! (Accurate Pass, Catch Fails)
%QUARTERBACK% throws to %RECEIVER% who stretches to make a great catch (Inaccurate pass, Catch succeeds)
%QUARTERBACK% tosses to %RECEIVER% - the throw is behind him, and he (fail) can't quite get turned around in time /' (success) reaches back to make the catch.
%QUARTERBACK% hits %RECEIVER% in stride at the %CATCHPOINT% yard line, who outruns %DEFENDER% for a %YARDAGE% yard gain.
%QUARTERBACK% passes to %RECEIVER% at the %CATCHPOINT% who is hit immediately by %TACKLER% and brought down.
Oh, and a note to my fellow smart-*** posters and those who fancy themselves comedians : Let's not trash this thread with silliness or idiocy. I'm sure your fertile minds are overflowing with comments like "%RUNNER% goes down harder than the Obamacare web site" but put those in their own thread please.
