I don't think anybody knows why it happens. And if I'm being honest, I haven't kept up with the thread for the other league enough to know if it ever stopped being an issue. Like I said, I'm pretty sure it didn't affect us while we've been replacing guys during the season. But that would be a hell of a thing to find out during the playoffs just so somebody could peruse the rosters a week early. I PM'd him asking if he'd mind waiting until after the Super Bowl. Hopefully it's not a big deal.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

Jets defeat Browns 27-24 on a last second field goal. I forgot how long it was but it was from FAR away. Over 50 yards. What a heartbreaker. It was a battle. The whole fourth quarter was back and forth. Thought we were headed to overtime, but I blew it when I allowed a catch over the middle(it was my fault, I was controlling a defender in the area).

Anyway, ready to talk trade. TRich is staying most likely as I haven't gotten any offers that are even close.

I am looking to trade Brady. Maybe for a lower rated QB, not too low, and a good TE or WR. I can throw in Ben Watson or Greg Little or another WR. Let me know.

holy crap! good game fsecreast! defense and special teams got me through that one. Glad I picked up Buehler during the free agency period, no way Folk could have made that 56 yarder. not sure how much of a chance I have going forward though since you knocked the crap outta Cromartie

Like I said before, everyone on my team except for Peterson is on the block. Yes, that does mean I'm open to dealing Harvin ;) I'm looking for a QB, DB, DT, and WR.

AFC:
Jets vs Dolphins
Patriots vs Titans


As far as trade block, I too am open to dealing pretty much anybody on my team. Would like to change QB (not a huge fan of Freeman), LB, DB, DT, and possibly WR. Make me some offers!

John Shepard has accepted the contrarct extension the the Buffalo Bills offered him. ( If anybody plays mass effect). That's cool that the game offered me that. I guess another cpu team wanted me ;). I wonder what would happen if somebody pressed decline.

I did that once in an offline career, thinking I could then take another job, but the only option on the next screen was to retire.

More.. Then strategy then schemes if you see what player type they are then switch it too that then they will go up. Like for my WR I put posession on accident and Burgess went from an 78 too an 89.

But I think this also affects other players on rosters aswell. Like Jackson from the eagles shows he's an 78 when I think under the eagles roster he's an 90 I think.

Wow! Awesome that we got all these games played today! And with that, we have advanced to the divisional round. Again, I'm going to put a 3 day window on these games, but of course it would be great to get them played sooner. But they'll be due no later than 12/8. Good luck to everyone!

I know that we're advancing pretty quickly, but is there any way we can settle on a day of the week, not necessarily a date, for the draft? Since I work nights, it's probably going to be tougher for me than most, but I want to be there for the draft.

Also, if any team with a Top 10 pick is looking to move up to the #2 pick, shoot me a PM. I'm looking to trade down, and maybe pick up some extra picks or help on the O-Line.

Well, it's kinda hard to say right now...especially if we're able to knock out any more rounds in one day's time. I'm sure we'll get a clearer picture as it gets closer, and I'll do what I usually do for drafts and come up with 3-4 days/times, and have everybody message me with all available times they could make it. Then we go with the most popular choice.

For reference purposes, this is Chetty's post from earlier in the year detailing the offseason process:

So i'll just go through the entire off season process for those that don't know. First off, scouting points can accumulate and won't be reset until after the draft. I personally like to actually save all my points until right before the rookie draft and do all my scouting then.

So step one after the Superbowl(this might happen whenever you get eliminated from the playoffs so make sure to look for it) is to sign your contract extension/gain levels and get xp for your coach if you have met your ultimate goal. You must click on this improve the level of your coach and collect the xp.

Then you have one week where you get one last chance to negotiate and resign your own players. Players that you have ended negotiations with during the season, will not negotiate with you here.

After that week has advanced there is the first week of free agency. This is where everyone goes in and gives their initial contract to the free agents. In the free agency screen you can see what teams are interested in the F.a and you can see what he believes his market value is. So far, i have not been able to find anywhere that tells you what the other users are offering.

The next week is the second week of free agency, which also gives you a chance to scout. Typically, if multiple teams are trying to get the same free agent, that free agent will narrow his list down of the teams he is interested in. You can then see his list of teams he narrowed it down too, so then you can decide if you need to up the ante on your offer or leave it as is. If say in week one of free agency you were the only person interested in a person, or your offer just blows them away then they may sign in between week 1 and week 2 of free agency.

The next week is the third and final week of free agency, this once again gives you more scouting time/scouting points. It works how week two did, he narrows down his list and only accepts if your the only one or he got an offer that blew him away. But keep in mind this is your last chance to put in a offer, once it is progressed past this week all the free agents with offers will make there final decision.

The next week is just more scouting time/scouting points. This is the last opportunity you'll have to do any scouting before the draft.

The next week is the rookie draft, i'm sure you guys will learn more about how that goes once you actually do it. The nice feature is that the commissioner can pause it at anytime.

The next week is basically a recap of the draft and gives you all the contract info for your rookies. The rookies are all on a pay scale and are signed automatically. The game actually puts aside salary cap that you can't use, because it saves it for the rookies cap room.

After that you are into the next preseason


To get to the draft before Christmas, we would need to be on a bit of a quicker pace than every 3 days (and I'll be out of state from 12/22-12/27. I'll try to take my Xbox with me...but no promises). Like I said, this is really just blind guessing at this point, but it could work something like this:

Phase - Start Date
Divisional Rd - 12/6
Championship Rd - 12/9
Super Bowl - 12/11
Re-Sign Players - 12/12
Free Agency 1 - 12/13
Free Agency 2 - 12/14
Free Agency 3 - 12/15
Final Scouting - 12/16
Rookie Draft - Between 12/17 and 12/21

With that many different phases, there could be a lot of shifting between now and the draft, but I really hope there would be no reason to go any slower than that. Not sure how helpful that is, but at least it narrows it down a bit.
