Yeah, I keep meaning to respond to you, man. But something always seems to pop up right as I'm typing my message, lol (it's been a crazy week). But absolutely, the Bucs are all yours. I'll send you an invite now (assuming you've activated your online pass). We're happy to have you here! Welcome to the league!
Do you have what it takes to compete?

This reminds me, to anyone:

If you're planning on sticking around after this season, make sure you use all your scouting points for the draft. I didn't do it at all in the other league, and I picked up a few high-pick stinkers because I had no idea what their ratings were.

Titans - 38
Jets - 24

Really fun game in this one. Tennessee jumped out to a 14-0 lead on the strength of some big Chris Johnson runs and a quick INT. The Jets wouldn't let things get out of hand though, as they came roaring back, tying the score at 17 all. The Titans were able to get another TD before halftime to take a 24-17 lead. Tennessee added another score in the 3rd to regain their 14 point cushion, but that was quickly answered by New York, as the quarter wound to a close.

In the 4th, the Titans defense stepped up and made some big stops. And Chris Johnson notched his 4th TD of the day...and finished with an astounding 367 yards rushing. The Jets tried to mount a final comeback, but Matt Schaub's 4th INT of the day sealed the game. Great game to stepano! I got worried he had figured me out when he tied the score. I was terrified of throwing against his corners though, and it shows in Locker's stat line. Fortunately, for me, CJ played huge again.

Titans
Jake Locker - 2-6, 31 yds, 0 TD, 1 INT
Chris Johnson - 19 att, 376 yds, 4 TDs
Javon Ringer - 4 att, 11 yds, 1 TD
Nate Washington - 2 rec, 31 yds
Michael Griffin - 4 tackles, 1 INT
Derrick Morgan - 3 tackles, 3 TFL, 2 sacks

Jets
Matt Schaub - 9-21, 281 yds, 3 TDs, 4 INTs
Shonn Greene - 12 att, 48 yds
Santonio Holmes - 5 rec, 161 yds, 1 TD
Dustin Keller - 3 rec, 106 yds, 1 TD




Gronk keeps having big games like over 150 yards and 3 td like every week but you and that dame CJ keep stealing player of the week from him. lol

I really didn't expect that kind of game out of him. I saw that the Jets have like the #4 defense, and thought points might be hard to come by for both of us. Turns out there were several big plays for both sides. But my o-line played very strong and CJ's cuts were quick and juicy. I thought at some point it would be "going to the well too many times", but my guys just kept picking up their blocks and creating big holes. Probably the best my linemen have played all season. Definitely wasn't a reflection on stepano's skill level. Just the right game at the right time for me.

Not sure, but check the settings and see if the strategy pad quick links or whatever they're called are turned off for you. I can't even remember what the default setting was, but I know for certain things, even if I set it up one way, individual users had to adjust it for themselves anyway. I would just check the settings and make sure they're the way you like them.

I brought this up with Nate but I'm gonna bring it up here too. I feel like we should consider turning the interception slider down a bit. The number of interceptions is out of control. Consider that the average NFL defense last year picked off 16 passes. That would rank third-lowest in our league as of this writing. The Packers led the NFL with 35 last year. Our leader has 50. Just my opinion, but I think for the sake of realism the slider could use a bit of tweaking.

That's funny Nate said he would advance us today not to mention the holiday was yesterday! Just sayin


Should be expected with a holiday. Things are going to run a little slower with people having guests in town and such.


I'm glad I skipped over most of this page, lol. It's amusing that some people think Thanksgiving is a one day event though. The issue was I've just hardly been on my Xbox...and as DVO mentioned, the website is worthless, and EA never bothered to release that mobile app they promised us (though I'm sure it wouldn't have any worthwhile features either). In addition to having family in town and celebrating my daughter's first birthday, I've been so massively engrossed in Black Friday sales it's been almost borderline obsessive. I think I've gotten like 12 hours sleep the past 3 nights combined...staying up till around 5 AM every night. But hey, I was front row, center when things went insane on microsoftstore.com last night, and man did I have an incredible score. :D

But yeah...back to your regularly scheduled bitching and complaining...with a Christmas scent! :lol:

LOL, Nate whatd you end up with? I (somewhat foolishly it seems) went to bed around 3 before the last round of sales went live, but I did get Forza for $15 at least there and got some other great deals from Amazon/BB.

Geez...let me try to remember, lol. It was all such a blur. I was just looking at their website like "this can't be right..." When basically every game on the entire site drops to $10, it becomes incredibly difficult to determine what games you actually want and what's just "a really good deal", haha. I'm sure a lot of people were more limited than me because I rarely buy games at launch anymore (basically only sports stuff that I want to play online)...so there was a lot for me to catch up on. But I ended up with (mother of God...I just realized this list is long enough to justify spoiler tags, lol)
Spoiler


I had no intention of buying this much. But when you can start rationalizing it with "well, that's the cheapest it's ever going to be", it gets ugly pretty fast. By the time I got to Disney Universe and Brave, I knew I had to force myself to stop. Only thing I missed out on was Lego Batman 2...which sold out while I was trying to place the order. That thread was like the NYSE last night though, haha. I could barely keep up with it. I think I actually got a hangover from this sale, lol.

Nice haul! I did get Forza back on Thursday morning but missed last night;s deals. Would have gone for Tiger Woods, SWTOR CE, Amalur, Witcher 2, and a bunch of others. Ah well, Madden, Forza, and Borderlands 2 (which I snagged for $17 from Amazon after credit) should keep me busy for a while in addition to Halo 4.

He basically did the same thing last year. I think his "veteran" standing may be taking a hit after this. Not even lasting one season is kinda crappy.

I joined the season late the guy before me literally scounted everything for this one QB. He didn't scout anybody else.So hopefully I can get some decent players since I haven't had the same amount of time to scout like ya'll.
