I haven't heard back from the guy who said he was the jets. I've got a main league game at 12:30 est....what do you want me to do Kaster?


Go ahead and play the CPU, if you prefer. Otherwise we'll sim it. I wish he'd told me he was going to play as the Jets, because he said the Colts. But because of the unusual circumstances of this week, I'll let people get their games in until about midnight. Is he still signed in as them?

campbellbj1, you still controlling the Ravens? If so I can play tonight possibly later in the evening and the same probably goes for tomorrow evening. Just PM me and let me know what your schedule is like. Monday evening should be pretty open too.

No, there was always communication. I think the strikes rule was created so that people couldn't just ignore the league and then coast into the playoffs on sims. In your guys' case, you just were unable to get together at the same time.

Guys, I just heard from Nate. He wanted me to let you know that while he understands the need for CPU games, we still should PM people with secondaries and/or request subs BEFORE playing the CPU. Thanks everyone!

Just for the record, I sat here for days trying to get a sub, and I know it wasn't necessarily directed at me. Also, I lost to the CPU anyway...I am just horrible now, I don't know what happened...

Chiefs took care of the Bills last night and are ready to prep for their matchup against the Pats next week.

Billy, that game should have been a lot closer. So many passes clanked off your DBs hands....Matt Cassel bloooooows.

Just want to clarify...this wasn't "directed" at anybody. Obviously, I understand the need to allow CPU games as an option since Madden interest has started to wane in both leagues. And of course that magnifies as the deadline approaches and multiple requests have been made.

All I was asking of everyone is to make an attempt at finding a sub and not just playing the CPU on day one. It was basically just a reminder to use what some would see as common sense. As long as you've done those things, playing the CPU is the only option left...and I think everybody could recognize that.

campbellbj1, I can also do tomorrow night/early Wednesday if that works better for you. Actually, since I don't feel good tonight we should aim for tomorrow night or early Wednesday.

Bengals 19
Broncos 14

Cincinnati squeaks by KasterDB and the mighty Broncos with a 19-14 win tonight. After the game started out looking like it was going to be a rout for Denver, the Bengals' defense was able to shake up Kyle Orton and that potent passing attack in the second quarter. In all, the Bengals D notched six sacks, including one safety, to keep the Broncos' offense off-balance for the final three quarters of the game.

The Broncos defense played remarkably, as well, limiting the Bengals to just 88 yards on the ground. Both teams were horrendous on third down, going 3-of-9 each.

Denver's special teams scored returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter, as well.

GG KasterDB. This was one seesaw battle, and it just seemed like the one who had the luck would get the win.

Mighty Broncos nothin', I was 3-8 going into that one :lol:

Your defense really tightened up after my opening drive. I really was only close to scoring one other time when I missed that long field goal. The kickoff return helped, but it just helped hide the fact that my offense was just miserable. Good game, man.

Yeah, I'm not sure why your O-line decided not to block for you after the first quarter. I did start calling some blitzes, but I've never had much luck with those — especially against someone who can read coverage as well as you can. Usually when I call a blitz, I just get burned.

It did really help that I was able to get some yards on the ground in the second half. As you probably saw, my passing needs quite a bit of work!

If campbellbj1 can't or doesn't care about using the Ravens can anyone else step in either later tonight or tomorrow afternoon?

I think we're playing later, but I just want to have a backup plan.

I am calling it quits, I'll see some of yall in the main league, but I am done with this one. Glad I joined as this got me interested in league play. However, I can barely stand playing anymore, and want to cut down some. Thanks for the fun times.

I'm really disappointed with the amount of people that have stated their desire to quit in the middle of a season lately. I can understand people getting "burned out" on Madden, but let's not ignore the giant elephant in the room. The people who have done this have not had the same level of success they had in season one. It's not really fair to those who are doing well this season. If the same thing had happened last season, we wouldn't even have gotten to the point we're at now. Again, I can understand losing interest, but I wish people would at least finish out the season for the benefit of their leaguemates.

Also, I've heard from a few people that they've had some trouble scheduling their games. We've had a couple new members join recently, and I just want to make sure they know the general procedure for getting games set up. The preferred means of communication is through private message. Pretty much everybody has it set up so they receive an email notification when they get a PM. For people who have email on their phones, this becomes even more effective. You should also be checking in on the thread regularly. archie971 hasn't posted in here since 4/1. When stuff like this happens, people start to wonder if you're even still in the league. Even if you are actively reading the thread, making a post every so often just lets people know that you're around.

I know some people might think sending XBL messages is a good form of communication...and it is better than nothing...but for people with a wife and kids, a job, school, other responsibilities, or even just other gaming systems, we might not turn our 360's on for a day or two...but people pretty much always check their email. I just want to make sure everybody has every opportunity to get their games scheduled, especially considering we're moving into the territory of playing CPU games now. That said, any game that is not played by the day of the deadline is subject to being a CPU game. Don't let the computer decide your fate!

I might piss and moan about a lot of things, but this is one I agree on. I've now completed four seasons between the two leagues and have only had a winning record in one, but I take my losses and press on. I'm debating what I want to do for upcoming seasons too, but I believe that I should at least ride it out and deal with it between the seasons.
