I sent the packers owner a PM asking when he could play. I am hoping to get the game in today! The saints are on 2 game winning streak and looking to make it 3. After just missing the play offs by 1 game last year I learned that every game counts.

Seahawks over Cards 17-10. For the second straight week, Hawks D shuts out the opposition in the 2nd half (it was 10-0)

Good game, Cards got screwed by some bad late turnovers, and would have been screwed even more if a fumble immediately after kickoff wasn't overturned by the refs. I also had some bad luck early, when Braylon Edwards dropped a third down, and on the next drive, another big catch that looked like it could have gone all the way. Uuuugh.

Anquan Boldin got hurt and missed the rest of the game, but will thankfully be healthy for next week. Lost Leroy Hill for 4 weeks though, Bobby Wagner will move from reserve MLB to ROLB to fill in.

Great game cards. I end up going 2-0 vs. the cards, with this game being much closer than the first. Wild card hopes continue with a big game vs. the Vikings next week.

EDIT: Just noticed I'm a mediocre 4-4 vs. the NFC (largely thanks to the 9ers and rams being 3-0 vs. me) and 3-1 vs. the AFC. DVO, you're the only AFC North opponent that beat me!

yeah that drop on the left seam on your first drive was pretty bad. that rt horton fumble makes me think that I may actually have to boost his carrying, he's fumbled in a couple of games this year (and even a few times in practice)

I messaged the Bucs owner to get a time. Just wanted to see if he may see this one as well! My tapatalk app has been messing up when I message people with full inboxes In that it makes me think the message sent and doesn't say it's full.

Hey. I know they are not accepting new users in this league until the end of the season, but it's already week 13. They want to make sure new users don't come in, mess up the team, or are not active. Just post occasionally and show them that you are active and it a couple weeks I'm sure you can get a team.

EDIT: Damnit! Brandon Marshall out 8 weeks.. 3 losses in a row and now this


Sorry to get back so late def a gg can't imagine what the playoffs will be like.

There will definitely be teams open after this season. If you look at the first post of this thread, you can see the teams that are currently open. I just don't want to fill those teams this late in the season out of fairness to the people who have been fighting for a playoff spot. But definitely hang around the thread, feel free to ask questions, and just let us know that you're still interested, and you'll be one of the first in line to grab a team as we move into the offseason.

so with the open team are we going to allow the new owners to take over during the playoffs? if of course none of the open teams make the playoffs of course. also i would be willing to some of test runs on people who want to join if n8 doesnt want to do them all himself


Probably. The reason we helf off last season was out of fear of injuries being reset. But I think it's pretty apparent now that EA fixed that glitch (along with the disconnect issue...remember when the game first game out, and the game would award losses to whoever was to "blame" for the disconnect no matter what?) I think it would be fine to figure out who our new owners will be and let them look over their rosters and start to plan their moves once we reach the playoffs.

And if you want to scrimmage with any of these guys, feel free. Obviously, I don't want them being chettingway's (like how I did that? lol), but as long as they're around our level of competition, I'd be more concerned with HOW they play. People doing things the right way goes a long way.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

ya i will check the waiting list once i get some free time and try and set them up for scrims and get back u on there level of play and make sure they look over the rules before the scrim so they know how to be playing as well. also curious to know this but is everyone thats already in the league still good for next season is any one graduating this year or is everyone safe. i think our league has finally found a great balance this season now that the chettingway is gone lol and yes i like how u did it

That's really too early to say. In general, I feel a lot better about this season than I did last. The obvious outliers right now are Blade and perdition(troy. The issues there though are that Blade is a good player who took one of the best teams in the game. I feel like he might be judged more harshly because of that, but that's also something he needs to think about for next year's game.

The way I feel right now, I don't have any intention of getting rid of him after this season...but if we went through season 3, and he just mows people down again...it would definitely be looked at more closely. As for perdition(troy, he said it himself...he's had several CPU games this season. We'll see how his games go over the rest of this season. But like Blade, he wouldn't just be tossed aside due to one season. But he would be looked at more closely.

I was hoping for basically the situation you outlined, I feel it is fair. I was already considering not taking one of the better teams next year. I want to stay in this league and not have my only option be the main league. Though I do think the trades have made a difference in my team too.

Let me be the first to vote Blade out of the division ;)

Nah, but seriously, he's a good challenge twice a year. I've faced him 3 times (was unavailable once in season 1)--won in Season 1 in an ugly game, got SMOKED first game this year, and despite the score, we played a very tight game up until the 4th this year. Blade is a very good player, but I'm fine keeping him in the division or moving him to a tougher division/less talented team if that's the plan, too. Would hate to lose him.

It would be an interesting year next year though, potentially, if Blade moves to another team. Cards and Hawks have been close all year and are currently tied, and depending on new Rams and 9ers owners, could be a very tight division.

I've had close games, but people are 4-10 points behind and start airing the ball out against my DBs then it's welcome to pick city. I think I had about 4-5 games that were relatively close until the passing attempts went up. It's not like I user all these guys on defense either. I almost always play DT if he is out there, LE in nickel or sub, and occasionally MLB in quarter formation. I don't want to screw up and give up a big play.

Yeah, that's exactly what happened to me in our first game--you went up by 2-3 scores and I started airing it out, out of desperation. I did that a lot early in the season. Passing on your 9ers is very tough, I'll tell ya.
