I temporarily had Knox but wasn't really impressed with his numbers. He's fast...that's about it. His catch ratings were low. His route running wasn't great. And his release was horrid. He also was a surprisingly bad return man (his carry is in the 50s too, I believe). I felt like Brandon Tate brought a lot more to the table. Similar speed...better hands...good returner.

I did try to get Mathews last night though, but somebody had signed him when I went to grab him. Guess he got thrown back out there and I missed him again. I'm suspecting we'll have a lot of players like that as people give different players "try outs".


I originally signed Matthews and then i was reading the forum and i misunderstood the one post about waiting 2 weeks to sign a player who was recently cut, I panicked and released him so I wouldnt get in trouble, then it was explained to me that you cant resign your own players you cut for 2 weeks, by the time i found that out Matthews was already picked up by someone else.

Ya that was so people didn't do a quick "restructure" save a bunch of cap room and resign a guy way cheaper.

Is anyone actually playing the preseason games? I may be the only one who feels this way, but I wouldn't oppose simming the rest so we can get started on the regular season.

Both my opponents so far have reached out to me to play but I wouldn't mind advancing to the regular season tomorrow. I like playing preseason games it gives me the opportunity to use back ups and random plays I don't want to try for the 1st time in the season.

I'm just doing my practices. I feel like that gives me a good enough feel for what some of my new acquisitions bring to the table. I've still got to cut one or two players, so I am actually making use of the time. I agree with what you're saying...but we are at least moving forward at a decent clip now. We'll be advanced to the regular season tomorrow night (and I wouldn't even be opposed to a reasonably early advance).

Yeah. I just signed some players last night I need to try out in practice mode so I can figure out who will make my final roster.

I don't think any of the guys I signed had much XP. I think Ronde Barber had maybe 7k. I had Sanchez last season as my backup and didn't use his XP because I thought he might go unsigned again and didn't want to make him look more desirable to other teams. He is pretty accurate, but lacks arm strength.

Ryan Matthews and Johnny Knox. Not a bad pick up. I was expecting it to be wiped out when I got up, but there are still a few decent players left. I still can't believe the Chargers dropped Matthews.

Also, MaGahee went to the Giants. Have fun! He has 83 SPD!


So...Mathews went to the division rivals...this should be interesting...

Ah, that sucks. I at least feel better that there is a clear policy on it in the OP though. I'd feel bad if it was one of those vague rules that didn't have an official stance or something. Look on the bright side, maybe he'll live up to the real Ryan Mathews and tear his nutsack or something and be out for the season. :lol:

Indeed. I was liking what I saw in practice. Maybe, I will spare you the horror of Reggie and Demps and just use Matthews against you. His revenge. :D

If we advance too much later tonight, there's a chance I could forget. All bets are off once I'm on duty with my daughter for the night. I'll try, but anything is possible, lol.

All right, guys. We've advanced to the final week of the preseason. As I mentioned before, I really wouldn't be opposed to advancing a little early on Thursday so people can maybe get a head start on their Week 1 games. I was thinking 8PM EST.

The only reason I could see that being a problem for anyone is if their team has over 53 players and they won't be able to make their final cuts before that time. If that describes you, please speak up. Otherwise, we'll plan to kickoff the regular season at 8PM EST!

Whoever has Allen Baker needs to cut him. I didn't get a chance to get on yesterday to sign him. He was my fa pool pick.

Edit* looks like the Texans signed him! I went through the teams quickly.

I'm sorry man! I was wondering why there was a 99 speed back still left. I will do it as soon as I can. Again I apologize

Again, I never heard anything from FrankySox. At this point, the Packers are open. That's a pretty crappy way for it to go down, but whatever. I guess I'll contact steggy and see if he wants his team back, haha.

Well, if every time he looks, he's on a different team and not in the free agent pool, he can't really sign him, can he? I agree that this has gone on a little long. But to be fair, Baker has been picked up by at least 3 teams already.

Also, Texans vs Titans set for 8PM EST! Ready to resume the rivalry! I owe doc this season.

Yep, that makes perfect sense. You can totally sign guys who are on other teams rosters.

Every time I get on to sign him he's on a different team (not blaming any of those guys, not their fault.) I go away from home often on business trips and when the fa pool came up for me, I wasn't home. I use an iPad on the road. You try using EAs god awful website on an iPad and if you can navigate for two seconds without wanting to kill yourself, you have more willpower than me.



Doc, no prob. Just release him when you get a chance, I'm home all day.

This was my situation when I was on vacation and all of the free agency craziness happened. If EA was never going to release the damn app we were promised, the least they could have done is make a mobile version of their website. Trying to use it on a tablet will indeed make you want to kill yourself.

Also, does anybody know what in the hell formation uses 6 offensive linemen and a defensive tackle in the backfield??? The CPU has been running that on me in practice. It shows up as a 0WR, 2RB, 1TE set. Freaking weird, man.
