SMACKBOARD....M25!

Post  Guest on Mon Sep 09, 2013 3:22 pm

Cowboys welcome the 1-1 Rams to Jerry's Palace and come out victorious!

Had to re-start after first game d/c with 4 mins remaining and Cowboys leading by 4 with ball. Unfortunately for H1GHL1GHT, the second game was only close for a half. With approx. 20 seconds left in 2nd qtr, the Cowboys take over at the 20, after a Kenny Phillips int (3), and on a draw play HB Murray takes it 79 yards to the 1 yd line! HUGE turning point to the game as it was only 13-10 at that point. VY does the rest and puts the Cowboys up 20-10 at halftime. 2nd half was full of turnovers on part of S. Bradford and shutdown D from the Cowboys! End result, Cowboys win 44-10!!

2-1 BITCHES!! I'M COMING FOR MY 4TH MXL RING THIS YEAR!!

lions start off the season looking like the 2008 lions who won a total of 0 games. People just aren't making plays and the D is giving up an average of 30 points a game.

Doesn't help that 3 starters are out with injuries, but those shouldn't be excuses... Lions look to get there first win vs the also struggling bears in week 4.

Cowboys take on the 2-1 Chargers in San Diego and are going back home 3-1 after a 30-0 victory!!

You say defense doesnt exist in this game? How about the first shutout of the season and only allowing 58 total yards of offense!! 7 sacks, 3 ints, 4 turnovers (3 int & 1 fumble)...

Dallas defense set the tone on the very first drive of game with an int by Carr. Offense converts the turnover to an early 7-0 lead. Defense shutdown everything that Chargers tried on O all game long. Romo was 20/22 with 2 td's as well as the Cowboys offense also looked good and efficient.

Bring on the next AFC West team!!

Tennesee Titans get back to .500 after a forced fumble by defensive player of the year candidate Bernard Pollard. Jets were trying to get better feild position, clock management lost the Jets this one. Locker got the ball back and drove the team into fg position with no timeouts. The Jets started to call timeouts to try and get the ball back before the Titans were in fg range. Locker and the bots crushed the clock once they entered were in a high percentage fg position.

oh yeah...and Mini and Fallen don't? In what might be the toughest division in the league? AFC East.

Dude, passing is toned downed...no way to argue that. Running is up...that will lead to lower scores and better defense...no way around it.

Cowboys welcome the 1-3 Broncos to AT&T Stadium and send them back home 1-4 losers!

Cowboys improve to 4-1 as the defense once again plays great. 2 sacks, 1 fumble, 6 int's, lead by SS K. Phillips with his 5 tck 3 int performance!

Final 31-10!!

Gonna make some deadskins outta the Redskins next!

Naw...passing is toned a bit, but defense isn't easier....imma defensive player, and I don't find it easy at all......but u can stop people. The pistol formations IMO are all overpowered...run or pass....u have to committ too much to stop it......that's why tony has to make a stupid rule that u can't run certain qbs because once the formation is picked...it seems like offensive blocking is giving a extra boost...... I played Dan and he had Carson in the pistol...didn't run it once...but CPU still plays him the same like its cam in there....I shouldn't have to committ extra to a Carson Palmer lead pistol option......that being said I'm okay going against base formations and teams that don't run exclusively pistol...but that pistol is fun and the playbook I have got almost every pistol formation in it.....im only getting sacks if i blitz as well.....but I never been a dynamic blitzer..ill find a few from playing and steal others I see when they use it on me....what was we talking about again? Lol

Formation has nothing to do with it, when I was running the Qb it was all shotgun, no pistol. So its not the formation just the game being dumb.

Yeah your right...I can't type or convey well..li kinda mean once u get into the animation of read option....it seems overpowered.....I even notice a slight difference in someone running off tackle shotgun moreso that triple option...once it goes into that animation.....they make it too easy to do the right thing.....rarely see your corner get off that block...or the MLB scrap off the guard like he might in regular run...and even tho u made the right read...get stuffed for 1 or 2 yards....

....yeah its not the formations....running is just up compared to last game...run blocking is up. Passing IS down compared to last year. Is it still easy to pass? yes. But toned down a bit. Who says its EASY to play defense in this season's game? I just said EASIER compared to last season IMO.

....That running QB rule is crazy to me. Hell I would INVITE someone to run on me with their 80 or less speed. Go for it!!!!

....with the fumbling, injuries and negative plays that occur with "option" plays....I don't think any rule in that regard is necessary.

But yeah the run blocking is overpowering this season. BUT more realistic as on zone plays you actually SEE engaged battles moving, not just stationary like every game in the past. A Stretch play last year was EASY to get past the RT on LE/LOLB engaged battle as it never moved....but now it moves which feels more realistic as cutbacks are the norm just like IRL.

.....one can argue though.....that the ease of rushing this year makes defense that much tougher. To have to defend both on many more occasions.

Well, you guaranteed it wouldnt be easy and it wasnt!

Not much defense in this game for either team as both teams racked up 450+ yards of O. Cowboys got off to a great start with a 21-7 1st qtr lead after an early turnover by RGIII. However, the Redskins and RGIII went to work from then till eventually tying the game late in 4th qtr. Unfortunately, as I said, there was not much defense and the Cowboys took the 2nd to last possession of the game and took the lead. However, leaving the Redskins plenty of time to drive down the field to try the game it was do or die time for the Cowboys defense. When it mattered most, the defense stepped up with a Carr int to seal the game for good!

Cowboys get by the Redskins 42-35. Great game INDYS!

Panthers are on a 3 game winning streak with there first win in the division versus the BUCS. Game was a lil crazy at the end as panthers couldn't stop Doug Martin. Freeman threw for over 300 yards and 4 tds but also 4 ints. No one stood out for the panthers on offense, but Charles Godfrey had a career game with 2 ints and 5 tackles. Gg Tonka....( intereception at the goaline was bogus)

Cowboys go to Philly and get stomped! Score was closer than the game really was.

The Cowboys offense was inconsistent and too many turnovers by Romo. 4 int's to be exact! Defense was able to make some crucial stops and force the Eagles O to settle for FGs which allowed the game to remain somewhat within reach. After trailing 29-10, the Cowboys managed to crawl back into the game and with less than 2 minutes remaining took the ball and made it a 24-29 game. Unfortunately, the onside kick attempt was recovered by the Eagles and 1 kneeldown ended the game.

Bring on the Lions!!
