Are you in IT? I'm a Network Engineer and we have a huge turnover rate. Mostly burnout and/or firings. Working in healthcare is not fun. Less than 5 hours of scheduled downtime for the entire year

edit: I think it was this league...here is some footage from my new capture card -



I'm going to try to live stream my game tomorrow night through twitch. I'll post a link up before we start

Good game. The first half I had to make some adjustments it's been awhile and I forgot a couple buttons. It all came back to me in the second half but a fumble by Benson when I was driving really swung momentum. Good D by the Raiders seals the win.

Looking forward to more action!

That last play how you stood in the pocket and didn't even move I would have probably rolled out and gotten sacked. Stuff like that I need to work on.

Nice! Awesome job getting that game in, guys! Really glad that worked out for both of you.

I've known FrankySox for a few years, and we've played several different games together. He's definitely a good guy to have here. I'm glad we found a spot for him.

GG.

Yeah that fumble was a killer, my defense was depleted on that drive.

Overall solid but not impressive performance by 3rd overall pick Archie Urban in his debut. 8/14 for 157 I believe, 1 int, 1 td (swing pass to Heyward-Bey on an audible, he outran the Packers defense 73 yards down the sideline.) The rain played a factor as a few of the receivers on both sides slipped making cuts.

Janikowski hit a fg as time expired to give the Raiders a 16-13 win. I had to laugh at the what I estimate 40% full Lambeau Field. Even though they were 0-4 before that game (as they were pretty much CPU controlled with Steggy being busy), the Packers have like a 30 year waiting list for season tickets and that stadium is always full. Also seeing a qb wear #4 (Russell Wilson) for the Packers as qb was a little strange.

haha, yeah. I was that way in M12. This year it pays off to sit in the pocket, if you don't your blocks will fall apart quickly.

We have advanced to Week 7! It looks like Dallas has a bye this week, so he will be serving his one game suspension in Week 8. The deadline for Week 7 games will be 1/26!

Yeah I don't know what's happened to the Packers, if it was the CPU or previous users but last in scoring offense is not good. I obviously have my work cut out for me. I also had to laugh out loud when I saw Wilson's season stats...2 TDs 10 INTs...

Anyways kind of a newb question, is there anyway to change the way you call play from gameflow?

Dang so I was looking around on the fourms which was my first time. I realyl don't even listen to cag or use it really. My friend showed me a podcast and said they had a madden league on the fourm and that was something I had always wanted too do. It seems most of ya'll play in other leagues also like nba and nhl. Are those leagues as active as the madden ones? I've alway's picked up nba and nhl games when they've gotten cheaper. I'd be up for joining another game league though I am not very good at nba or nhl and would probably lose every game. haha

Nate had an NHL league going as well but him, jza, myself, and a few others (Flyersfan is still in it I think?) got pretty fed up with the game this year and traded it in. Its still going with a new commish but I dont think its nearly full. There was a NBA league too but no idea what happened with that.

As for practice I tend to alternate between Bad Start and Easy Win, usually depends on how much I actually want to do the practice lol. 1500 guaranteed XP for Bad Start is pretty tempting if I just want to rush through it.

Lions are looking to upgrade their WR/CB/FS/SS. Willing to move all draft picks (I have one in rounds 1-7) and are open to taking offers on whomever.

How much EXP do you get?


its different everytime but i read somewhere that in players can earn xp in practice and so from there i just watched my players xp before practice and checked after to see if any changes happened to a guy that had a stood out big time i nthe practice mode and noticed his xp went up the highest ive seen get extra was around 1000 xp. and i always do 3rd quarter rally and it says players cant earn it but they still do. u can test it out for urself like i did to see if u notice anything but it works for me for some reason. wouldnt try leading people into the wrong direction for fun thought this would help people progress there players

example stephen hill sits at 5235 xp im about to do my practice i will let u know if it goes up and i plan to target him alot

practice mode used: 3rd Quarter Rally
starting score 10-0 my team was down
Hill had 4 TDs and at one point a little popup came up saying he had 160 yards but i know he had more than that after a few catchs but the popup never came up again.
hills xp after was 6253

so with that his xp went a little above 1000 extra xp

try it yourself see if it works for u
