Yeah it is pretty frustrating considering I was up 21-0 and having my best game in 4 weeks (on a 4 week losing streak). I've lost respect for you, not that it matters. Oh well.


I'm sorry you feel that way, but it's not anything personal. If you want to make it personal, that's your business. I'm being legitimately honest when I say I just don't want to play this game anymore. Obviously, I have to stick around to keep the league running, and I'm fine with that. I just don't want to waste any more time on this team this season.

I'll make adjustments in the offseason and try again, but I'm shutting this team down for now. Like I said, I don't get much time to play video games anymore...so continuing to watch my overpaid defense not be able to cover TEs and FBs is unbearable. I sincerely apologize for wasting 10 minutes of your time. But that's all it is. I don't need this to be a big deal.

I am not making it a big deal. Just stating how much BS it was, that's all. It's over with. Also "10 minutes" of my time is a lot to me. As you said, I also don't get much time to game these days.

Haha, if I'm out, I'm out man. If you guys want somebody else to take over, I don't have a problem with it, but that would be it for me this year. I'm not even suggesting anything drastic here. People can just play my CPU the rest of this season. Just pretend I'm on a long vacation, lol.

I just haven't been having fun with this game for a while and playing my games has become a chore. I'm basically just forgoing my final 5 games (I don't care whether I make the playoffs or not). Then I'll go back back to the drawing board with finding a defensive player who can cover the TE.

im not sure how fair it is for u to just forfeit the rest of the games to just try again next year. considering the fact that people shouldnt have an issue beating the cpu and there for by giving u a better draft position just kinda seems cheap to do it like that.

Ok, cool. So, I'm out then. League's over, everybody. Thanks for playing. What difference does it make whether I play the games and lose or let people play my CPU? We've had numerous people go on autopilot for multiple games. I bust my ass on the league all fucking year, and you can't give me a 5 game break? God damn, there are some unappreciative assholes in this league

No, I wasn't calling you out. Just the general way this game goes. My heart just wasn't in our game at all. Like I said, it's not personal. I don't want to play anybody right now.

Sorry I was just making a general statement about myself and throwing to TE's. I didn't mean it to sound directed towards you.

Most of my INT's this year are from throwing to my TE. I haven't been throwing to him as much as I'd like too.

I think its just all about how you user your D. When I played staticz Clark (whos been leading the NFC for TEs) was pretty much a non-factor cause of how much staticz was usering guys like Beason on him.

Colts vs Jags done. Colts win 37-10

Literally Darktower might have had the worst luck ive ever seen in a madden game. Indy had only 1 offensive TD in addition to a pick 6, fumble return, and TY Hilton returning a missed FG 109 yards for a td..
good game man

yea looking at the box score.. he outgained me by 100 yards, had more Time of poss, more first downs.

Yeah, the fumbles in Madden drive me insane. The picks were bad choices on my part but fumbles feel so random.

People get crushed and hold onto the ball and then someone bumps a player with a 95 carry rating and the ball goes flying.

It's been a long day, thanks for the laugh...priceless!

Also I'd like to note that I lost to the CPU and have beaten user teams. So putting the n8's team on autopilot doesn't seem like a big deal.

I agree with Franky I almost lost my first CPU game. I was down 21-3 at one point in the game. I know for myself I am not blowing out the CPU at all there giving me a run for my money. Lol

We've advanced to Week 12. The deadline is 2/15.

And holy crap, most of the games were lopsided as hell this past week. Things are getting ugly.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

The other thing is...for perspective, I have 6 wins. It's not like I'm tanking for the #1 pick. I couldn't care less what pick I end up with. I just don't want to play this game for a little while. My defense is horrid. I can't stand to look at them. The only thing I'd do differently is start screwing with my lineup and putting people out of their natural positions to see if anything would click (will Madden let you put a safety at LB?)

Seeing Gamerdude mention "shutting down the TE with guys like Jon Beason" is a bit funny. Yes, one of the best LBs in the game can shut down the TE...mind blown, lol. Not all of us are blessed with guys on that level. I'm lucky if my guys can find their feet. And like I've said before, the fact that there was a simple fix for it that EA removed just makes me want to stab something. It's like they went out of their way to make the game shittier. I'm tired of talking about it, even. Just leave me be, lol. Pretend I'm not here.

The comment I was making wasnt that he was usering Beason to shut my TE down, it was that he was very effective at usering his LBs in general. He usered Beason, Anderson, and others and consistently kept Clark in check. Maybe you just need to practice with your LB's, lol

haha! Thanks for the compliments man. I feel like I whiff more often than not, but that is probably in my head.

Best thing I can offer to stop the TE is to play a 2-3-6 which brings a DB down to the Sam. Normally it puts in your backup SS but you are usually better off subbing in a CB with high Man Coverage. If you still feel like you are getting beat, drop your strongside DE into a yellow zone to help out.

The biggest problem with this setup is you are vulnerable to the run, but that is where your usering skills come in.

Are TE's that abused in our league? I haven't looked at any of the leaderboards for a few weeks but other than the one guy that was leaning on gronk every play I don't remember anyone standing out to me.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

I think most guys get pissed when everyone goes to their TE on 3rd down. The streak to TE's is easy to abuse with precision passing. If the LB is on the inside of your TE, lead him outside. If he is outside, lead it inside.

Again though, it comes down to just double covering. Most guys throw that streak on timing so if you drop a DE into a yellow he'll pick it off more often than not.

Might just be me, but I think TEs were much harder to defend in Madden 12 than they are this year. The slant out to the TE was so uncoverable that they took the route out of the game entirely. TE seams are annoying, but they're much easier to defend if you know how - staticz basically has the fomula correct there.

ahh thanks man. The Chiefs ran the exact defense I wrote about a few posts above a lot of last year, except they but Berry at the Sam (which was a mistake IMO), so I can't take all of the credit.

another thing to consider with TEs is that do you think that defending them for the real nfl is any less of a headache? I remember playing madden 05 and if you got a te with 70 catch and speed he was a god send. It's just a different league. I bet the bills defense would love to be able to blame EA cheesyness for having to see gronk and hernandez twice a year.

Jeez I've had/have every division game right now...vikings-bears-packers-and then two more NFC north division games and finish out with the panthers and bucs.

Also, I like Hernandez better than Gronk in this game. He is more reliable if I use the Patriots.
