What is it the CIT rating for? I've always assumed it gave the receiver a higher chance of catching it on a jump ball or a closely-guarded slant or crossing route. I've also seen people say that it helps a receiver hold onto the ball when he's hit while making a catch, but I thought this was based on the catch rating.

I always thought it came into play when it wasn't an open catch and someone was on them kinda like you mentioned. I've tried to get players with high CIT cause I make a lot of short throws.

Since I was there with my dad when he wanted to do the trade, he had been having issues with Knox's fumbling tendencies and proneness to injury.

Reading through that I didn't know wtf the steelers were thinking. Johnny Knox is so much better in every single way especially with his CIT being so high, along with his RTE being higher as well as speed. Good job talking him into that one TB.


Yeah, it was actually offered to me as is. I think Knox's injury history may be part of it. Hopefully he can stay healthy for me!

Ya I can see that being a problem. The trade isn't crazy skewed, just TB got the better end on paper imho.

Still waiting for a reply from Steggy, sent another pm now.

Darius Heyward-Bey and Denarius Moore are both up for trade, but only sending one or the other. Speedy receivers, I think Heyward-bey is a 97 speed, Moore 93 or 94.

Well you never messaged me yesterday at all, so don't act like it was all my fault or something. You were also the one you said you couldn't play till that night sometime. Furthermore, I gave you my phone number to make it easier to communicate, so please feel free to text me.


I'm just saying that I have made my attempts, I just didn't want it to come across like I wasn't making an effort. I can play tonight. Also, I don't think it's necessary to call any of this stupid. I was just explaining my side of the story, and wasn't trying to start anything. I never said he had to communicate with me by phone, I just gave him the opportunity.

Unless I'm missing something, I'm not sure why you should be allowed to play the CPU. He said you didn't message him until late last night about playing right then. He acknowledges that he didn't message you, but is now trying to set it up for tonight...which you've already stated that you could do.

With proper communication, there's no reason this game can't still be played. I wouldn't allow anybody to play the CPU based on one message that basically equates to "Hey, can you play now?" The Giants and Cowboys had a similar situation recently, and the game was simmed. I'm not seeing one person drastically more at fault than the other here.

As for calling "any of this stupid", the only thing I referred to as being stupid was an argument consisting of "You didn't message me.", "Well, you didn't message me!" What does that accomplish? And my point about giving him your phone number is just that it's irrelevant. Yes, it's an additional option for people who don't mind handing out their number and receiving texts (and possibly drunk dials) at all hours. But it's not going to be considered in support of your case.

Ok, yeah. That's relevant info then, lol. People gotta stop withholding in this league. You can definitely play the CPU then. I'll put him on autopilot within the next couple hours.

Anyone have any tips for managing all the new aspects of the online franchise? I've played franchises before, but I guess maybe I haven't had to worry about it as much playing the CPU.

I've seen people talking about cutting and resigning players and I'm not entirely sure if that is or isn't allowed around here, but in general are there any tips or info to keep players, have a good draft, manage the cap, use practice effectively, or whatever else anyone might recommend?

As of now I'm feeling like I'm getting back into managing the game well enough, but I'm a little lost in the stuff outside of things on the field.

Well, if you go look at your Salaries section under "Strategy", you can view your players that only have 1 year remaining on their deal. These are the guys who will be free agents after this season.

You can also look at your salary cap space to see how much money you've got unallocated (in addition to the players coming off the books), so you'll have a rough idea of how much you'll have to spend. Then, it's just a matter of deciding who's worth keeping, and who you want to let walk. Not a whole lot people can advise you on there. Some players are worth the money and some aren't. It's going to be subjective.

As for team practice, it's no secret that "Easy Win" is the most efficient one to do. As its name implies, it's very easy to do, and you get 1800 XP for your coach for it. The hardest practice option only gives you 2000 XP, and it's WAY harder (holding a 6-3 lead in 2nd quarter vs. coming back from 35-3 in the 3rd quarter). These were terrible choices by EA, as there's really no incentive to do anything other than "Easy Win".

Cutting and re-signing players is just a means of saving money, but it definitely shouldn't be exploited. The only saving grace is that you'd only be allowed to re-sign those guys to a one year deal. But the bad part is that there's no type of waivers or anything to allow other teams a crack at them. You're basically just killing long term deals to free up money at the risk of not being able to re-sign that guy long-term. But since the deals in Madden are all backloaded, this can quickly become a nefarious practice. Anyone doing it excessively and using it as a means for circumventing the cap will be handled appropriately.

Still no word from Steggy. I can play till about midnight est tonight, so I guess I'll give him by 11 pm to respond.

Nate, when you set the eagles to auto later put the packers on as well, just in case. Thanks. Though from reading the thread these past weeks he may already be on auto.

Yeah, he should be on auto already. Feel free to play this game whenever you want. I actually just PM'd him today to find out if his schedule is going to allow him to return any time soon. Otherwise, it might be time for him to step aside for our guys on the waiting list.

I was also informed that the new Chargers owner (pdm79) is going to have to drop. Something about 3 people at his job getting fired and him not having time anymore. Odd timing that this happened within a week of him joining, but I guess stuff comes up.

All right, we're replacing two teams right now, so expect things to be a bit jumbled. Steggy acknowledged that he just doesn't have time for the league anymore and agreed that giving up the Packers was probably the best thing. Hopefully if his schedule calms down and we have another opening down the road, he can rejoin us. I contacted FrankySox about taking either the Packers or Chargers. Not sure if Flyersfan has played the CPU yet, but if not, and Franky takes the Packers, maybe there's a slim chance they could get the game in tonight. If not, no big deal.

I'll be going down the waiting list for the other opening soon.

Sounds good. If my memory serves, I THINK Franky is a Packers fan. So, if I had to guess, he'll probably still take them even without Rodgers/Jennings. Of course, that still wouldn't mean he'd be available tonight. But who knows. Maybe things will fall into place. He's got an invite either way. :)

We lost 1 person before I joined but that had no effect on my schedule. Over this past weekend two people were fired...so being down 3 people in our department, my schedule will be a mess. We only have 8 people to begin with...now 5....I don't want to hinder other owner's games versus me. I'm doing this out of respect for the league. Knowing how they take forever to hire new employees, this is not going to be a 1-2 week thing but a month if not more.
