This one took me a couple of minutes...

Although I've been using Kubiak for a few years now, I still decided to go back and read through the instructions this morning. While doing so, I noticed that the example used in the Playoff Adjustment section says most of Buffalo's players had adjustments greater than 100% because their late season opponents included the Seahawks and Rams. Have I been misinterpreting that adjustment all this time? Surely, the Rams and Seahawks are considered good defenses but I was also pretty sure an adjustment above 100% made the statistics better. I used Steve Johnson as an example and lowered his adjustment to 100% and, sure enough, his projections went down.

Finally, I opened last years file and saw the same example. I realize this is inconsequential for 99% of the people using Kubiak but for some of the new guys, this could be pretty confusing.

Noticed this same thing and was just as confused by it as you were. Sounds like an example that didn't get updated.

You are correct. I will fix this in the next version that updates Pitta, Maclin, etc.
