Usering a defender in coverage usually works out poorly for me because my opponents connection is poor more often than not and there is too much lag to cover a guy well enough to make a difference.
Yeah, funny thing is I felt like I had Darren Sproles bottled up most of the game. Had 10 tackle for loss and a lot of short gains, but all it takes is 1 or 2 long runs to make up for it. My kicking game was poor last season and cost me my game against the Chargers. There wasn't many upgrades out there in the offseason so I drafted a kicker who seemed decent enough. The first 50 yard kick I missed had 100% power and I barely missed it. The second one I will admit that I screwed up and hit the button too soon. I would get a new kicker, but the ones in the free agent pool don't seem any better than what I have and I doubt anyone is looking to trade their kicker. If anyone is, let me know.
My 2 new players came through with good games. Doug Martin ran for 115 and a TD on 28 carries and Vincent Jackson had 2 key conversions on 3rd down if I remember right. 1 of the catches wasn't even meant for him and the other was contested. A lot better than Emmanuelle Sanders dropping a TD and fumbling twice in last weeks game.
I am having such a hard time getting takeaways. Only 1 team has fewer takeaways than my 6 and that is N8 with 4. The league leader has 28 and most teams have at least double digits. Sacks are also a problem. Only have 3 on the season despite multiple stud pass rushers. Glad to be 4-1, but have to improve these numbers.
ya we both played pretty conservative it seemed only 1 turn over per side. and ur INT in OT was crazy my dude was bent over backwards caught it with one hand in the rain lol. but good thing it was 3rd down so it was just like punting prolly even better since i was behind the 20 yard line.
