My only complaint is one play where he manually used the Defensive End and played coverage on my receivers..Not a zone he chased a receiver on a slant all the way across the field. I thought that this was not allowed? I then asked him and his reply was "Peppers". the result was a pick 6. again this is not why i lost but just want to make sure that the lg is as sim as possible.I do know that Dline men drop into coverage but never seen one chase a receiver across the field. Am i wrong? besides that gr8 ass kickin Rash


that is one of those.... "i got to see it" because if im dropping back because i have put peppers in coverage, u sound like u want him just because he is the end that he has to stay in a particular spot.... but at the sametime... im not going to be dropping peppers back 15 times a game..... Now disregard the last comment if we talking about 4th quarter and you are in pass mode... then i might drop him back every 3rd down AT LEAST because I KNOW you are passing.... Im inclined to believe the game was getting out of hand or you was like "**** it im slanging it" because if he dropping peppers back on every 3rd and 8... imma draw his ass a few times to make him respect that he has to have at least 3 down lineman... I might add that if he is dropping him back but has "figured" out your first read that he might be inclined to forget the zone and take away that reciever......

NC, first of all, thank you for being respectful about this subject. Let me explain the situation from my standpoint a little better than just "Peppers".

1st and goal less than a minute left in the 1st half. You come out with 3 wrs but I decided to play run defense so I came out with a normal 4-3 defense zone.

You ran a screen play and casey hampton got the sack for an 8-9 yard loss. You go no huddle, and at this point I felt a pass coming for sure. Your quick no huddle gave me no time to adjust my 2 cb defense to your 3 wr set (too many buttons to press). So I stuck with the 4-3 zone and played a user QB spy with peppers to add more coverage zone. The slot WR went for a drag route and so I broke the spy when Peppers noticed the wr was quite open. End result was 100 yard pick 6 from Charles Tillman. Unfortunate, but fair and SIM in my opinion.

Good luck in the playoffs NCballa

Giants with a win over division rival Cowboys clinch the 5th seed in the NFC. Turned out to be a close game after the giants jumped out to a big lead. Dorian Hill continues to have a stellar season with 2 big interceptions, one returned for a td as well as a hit on a qb that caused an int. Gg tony maybe we'll see each other in the playoffs.

yeah i have been "following" his team especially offensive for most of the season because i knew what type of player he was... but to be honest i was skeptical because u can have TOO many weapons... but he had peterson out for about half the season.. along with some other notable players out for multiple weeks that i would be like "damn who i got too?" plus him being the lions, getting that offensive talent mean that his defense might suffer.. OVERALL WISE.. but it actually didnt... i think he just needed a year of progression under his belt on defense....

Insanely close game! Broncos win 49-46! Denver was trailing 42-46 with about a 1:30 left in the 4th qtr. Only took then 44 seconds to get an eric decker td to go up 49-46. KC gets the ball back with about 45 seconds left and manage to drive the ball pretty well with only 1 time out remaining. Last play of the game was an 18 yrd pass to McCluster with about 10 seconds left in the game and A. Smith and B. Dawkins tackled him at the 3 yrd line. Kc tried to huury up to get one more play in but time expired before they could line up or get the FG unit out to tie it all up and send it to overtime! Definitely a nail biter but it looks like the Broncos have made it to the post season with a winning record of 11-5. A much better result from last year.

Theyre excited to play against their wild card opponents next week and to progress a little furthing into the playoffs. Great game DG

Jackson out for the game in the first quarter, then my star rookie WR out in the 2nd for the game...then Gates out in the 3rd for the game. Was down 8 driving to tie in the 4th, in hurry up, but my guys are tired and I was having to sub in fuckin' FB Hester at WR at times. Got crazy haha.

I got one dimensional after my first drive, I just can't run on john's D to save my life. Ended up throwing 2 pick 6's in the redzone I believe...one in the first quarter putting John up 14-3.

Our first game got disconnected right before half time and I was up 14-7 in what were the makings of a great game...EA decided we should start over.

GG john, hate your D! (mine was huge in the first half but you made great adjustments in the 2nd, put up a ton of points. Your punt return TD right after I had a 3 and out to start the game didn't help either lol)


INJURIES INJURIES INJURIES...... that was the key for me...... i played bend but dont break defense... but when vince went down.. i was like "okay get more aggressive..." i knew that rookie is pretty good at route running because i have him in a 2 of my leagues.. i seen the pass to him in the zone and since i was usering smith.... i just wanted to hitstick him... but the biggest was gates to my defense.... that made me almost not pay attention that side of the field.... That internet by bannister was HUGE..... since we were close to the endzone, i figured u would read zone and hit him quick because he is wide open... so i took the fs and took b-line to right under it so i could try and jump for it.... yeah the injuries allowed my cbs to be on par with your recievers...

Vikings win their second consecutive NFC Championship with a blowout over the Eagles. First half was close but the Vikings sent a big blitz up the middle causing Mcnabb to drop the ball right into Kevin Williams hands for a TD. Vikings got the ball to start the second half and never looked back. Eagles went to the air and challenged the Vikings secondary but they shut the Eagles down. Austin showed why he is Rookie of the Year going 13/14 for 295. GG Wally.

Vikings win their opener against the Texans but have a huge scare. Austin tore his shoulder after throwing a 72 yard TD strike to Evans. Luckily he will only miss 1 game as the Vikes have a bye week 3. GG Htown.

Broncos visit Cleveland and come out with a 52-21 win. Orton was on fire throwing 14/15 for 287 yrds, 5 Tds and 0 INTs. Moreno rushed for over 100 yrds and Thomas had 100 yrds on only 4 receptions. On the other side of the ball the Denver D picked up right where the left off last season and welcomed back Newman to the line up. Both Champ and Newman had one INT each (Baileys for 6)and Dawkins replacement Darcel McBath got his first INT of the season. Denver will ship out to test the Panthers on their home field continuing their 3 game road trip before they finally get their home opener in week 4.

Good Game Dave, my D just has sticky fingers and just dug too deep too early.

Steelers open the season with a loss 42-35 to the Raiders. Finally found some offense, but my defense decided to not show up and was just standing around watching players catch balls and forgot how to tackle...lol

Good game except for the 10% HB flat passes that i just can't seem to cover.

My schedule is looking very rough this year also.

I have 7 play off teams to face:

Giants
Cowboys
Chargers
Chiefs
Bengals x2
Eagles
Broncos

I also have division rival Ravens for 2 games and the 2 other AFC teams that just missed the playoffs in the Raiders & Texans.

Welcome to my season from last year. Where only 3 of the 16 games I played were against teams with a losing record. Packers, Lions, and Bucs.

.Fall3nAng3l224 wrote:Despite a few turnovers by Stafford, The Lions are able to pull off the victory in a rainy downpour against the Jags. Great Game, John. All of the Qbs experienced several overthrows, which made throwing the ball, difficult. Each offense had a decent run game, then being up in the 4th I think threw John of his gameplan. The adding of MCcain and Turner proved to benefit the Lions as both guys made a difference in this game. The Lions look forward to their divisional game against the bears.

Some Stats -
AP - 18 attempts for 184 yards with 2 TDs.
CJ JR - 6 catches for 118 yards and a TD.
Mccain - 5 tackles with 1 INT.
Turner(Rookie) - 6 tackles with 2 sacks.
MJD - 11 attemots for 110 yards with a TD.
G. Alexander - 8 tackles.


lol. that is why u are a tough opponent... My gameplan was different, but it was actually on purpose... i found myself early on when i was down 14-0 trying to not let it get too out of hand so i went back to mjd to keep it respectable. Since i got a rookie wr that is pretty good and all my wrs went up last year.. i was trying out a slightly new offensive scheme... but i found myself getting into 3rd and longs and i had to try and get these first downs.... I'm glad i played your zone tho... it showed that my qb (rookie) isnt quite ready to be a slanger..... I guess we will have to ride drew a lil more this year.. GOOD BEATDOWN......


p.s. (i wanted that rookie safety too lol)

well the Ravens get their asses kicked in Buffalo. I was really hoping that my team would come out a little bit better than they did. It's amazing how stacked my team is but yet they kinda play like retards

Defensively my players are in position all game long but make no plays. Ed Reed misses INT's, St. Saint missed an INT that my grandpa could make, Ray Lewis misses 5 tackles (i begin to wonder why he came back for another yr), Zibby just sits there while the WR's or HB's catch the ball. & no damn pass rush all game it felt like

Offensively Joe Flacco is a 92 ovr but overthrows 5 yd slants by 5 yds that get intercepted. My WR's drop passes all day long, & if they dont then they just let the ball bounce off their helmets.

Freaking annoying & i hope it gets better. I usually dont get on here & bitch when I lose, but this game just made me mad. Which may be a good sign b/c I havent had that much emotion in a game since Madden '10....now my players just need to feel that damn emotion & play lol


GG Northface....I'm bitter but I guess you deserved the win. You're QB plays like a god. I think him & Flacco switched teams before the game

Only let up 32yards rushing and kept the cards to 2 for 7 on third down and a big 4th down stop on my 30 yard line which set up a 15 yard pass to Moss for the TD.

There was like 4 mins left in the game I was up 28-14 and he went for the FG on 4th n 3 from about the 30 yard line... I didn't get why he would do that since it was a two possession game but none the less the FG king missed it. GG praph not sure what the FG was for when you were down by 2

he is walking on eggshells and doesn't want to get booted!...lol so he is being super safe.

Well the Rams fall short agains Bears in 31-24 defeat. St. Louis fans had a brief scare as Sammy B. was injured. He returned to action thankfully but was unable to lead the Rams 86 yards down the field w/ no timeouts and 56 seconds left.It was a great effort but I am happy with the way my defense has played as they look much improved from last year. Great news is nobody was hurt!

Some Stats:
S. Bradford 16-27 243yds 1 TD 0
C. Greenway (Deubt) 3 Tackles
J. Laurinaitis 3 Tackles
F. Robbins (DT) 2 Sacks
C. Long (RE) 1 Sack

GG. Rash even though I lost it was nowhere near the ass kickin i took from you last year!

Very good game vs NCballa. It came down to the last second as a Hail Mary deflection was almost caught.

Bears played good.
Rams played good.

-Major Wright was putting a pounding with some hard hits.
-Jay Cutler did not force anything, although was sacked 4 times
-No injuries for either team. No turnovers for either team.


Player of the game = KR/PR Devin Hester
--101 yard kickoff return for touchdown to give Bears 14-3 lead in 1st half.
-- 88 yard punt return for touchdown to give Bears go ahead 31-24 lead in 2nd half.

Final Score: 31-24 Bears.




And Oh by the way... this never gets old...
