The deadline isn't until 11:59 PM EST on the 28th. Can you not play the 27th or 28th? Maybe my wording was confusing. What I meant was when is the last time before the deadline that you can play? Obviously, I don't want to screw you out of playing the game...but if there's still time, there's probably no harm in giving him a chance to respond either.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

You could answer my PM about your availability rather than just announcing in the thread to everyone that you'll be able to play generally tomorrow night. But do whatever works for you. I just want to get this season started.

I can do the same time...just move it back to the 28th.

Oh, also, I wanted to say, DarkRider got back to me and he will be taking over the Broncos. So, we are full again!


Indeed. I look forward to playing my first game. I am going to get a PM to my opponent in a minute.

I just thought I would check-in in the thread. (I will be accepting the invite next time I am on this evening.)

LOL at Jennings being worth a 1st rd pick. If you honestly believe an NFL team would make that trade for a 30 year old WR, then so be it. We obviously have a huge difference in opinion on that. Just seems like a trade that would be made for someone looking to play 1 or 2 seasons, without a long-term outlook.

I just looked up this year's draft and there were 2 CB's taken in the 2nd round:
Rams' Janoris Jenkins: OVR 78
Green Bay's Casey Hayward (2nd to last in the round): OVR 70
So to answer your question of "How many 2nd round rookies are going to be mid 70's with that type of skill set right out of the draft?"... 100% of them. Hayward doesn't have the man coverage skill set (72), but his zone coverage is rated at an 89. I'm pretty sure you'd be able to get him to OVR 73, like House is now, by his 2nd year.

I'm glad we have a trade committee, and applaud them for their work. I think the 2nd and 3rd rd draft picks is a much fairer compensation. Also, I'm happy for you that you got your deal done. I honestly was just trying to help you out, I thought you were giving up way too much for what you were getting in return.


First, your having a difficult time seperating real life and Madden. In real life is Jennings worth a first? Easily no. In Madden is a 90 plus ovr receiver with 94 speed and acceleration with a high catch worth a first. Easily yes.

Secondly, janoris is a special case of a first round talent dropping because of off field problems. Casey heyward is a 70 but does not have close to the man or press coverage of house, hence why I said they don't have the measurables I look for. His zone coverage could be a 99 but that doesn't help me at all. This is another situation where you are having a hard time seperating real life and Madden. We don't know what kind of players are actually going to be going in the second round of the Madden draft.

Lastly, people are putting to much stock into draft picks IMO. Yeah there nice but at some point you need the pieces to win now especially in a league that would only go 3-5 years.

I can take over for that Gibson guy if you all want, or be added to the waiting list as I just purchased Madden. Good to see a bunch of NHL/NCAA league names in here as well.

Just wait for the human, don't try playing the CPU and getting an easy win when you know the replacement is just waiting to accept the invite. That's just shady.

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

Wow. For being Gentlemen, you guys sure are a hostile bunch. I wasn't asking to play the computer, I was simply asking what I should do... And I accessed the forum from my phone, which does not alert me if I've received a PM, so how was I supposed to know you sent me a message, Dark Rider?

And I'm pretty sure that I wasn't trying to get an easy win off the CPU as it routinely kicks my ass on All Pro...

Set it so you get an email when you get a pm, problem solved.

I think his point was just to try to keep up with the thread. By the time you posted this, the previous owner of the Broncos had already dropped and been replaced (which is reflected in the OP). And the new owner posted in here saying he would join this evening...and it sounds like he PM'd you too.

Obviously, having a team drop is not an ideal situation, but it's being handled as smoothly and as quickly as it could be. I think the only reason you got responses like that is because your post made it sound like you were unaware that a new owner had already been lined up. Most likely just miscommunication. You guys still have 3 evenings to get the game played. No need for anyone to make a big deal out of it.

Read the OP, noob.

Unfortunately, this is the worst weekend that could happen. I'm moving this weekend, and won't have internet access from Saturday until Monday/Tuesday. So, I need this week advanced on time. Besides, somebody could have something like this happen every week. If we don't keep the schedule moving, we're not going to get through many seasons.

I'll definitely add you to the waiting list, man. I'm sure it won't be long before another spot opens up.

What this means for everyone else...what I said before, about not minding if we have absentee owners is still true. HOWEVER, if there's somebody ready and willing to take your spot, it would be in your best interest to make sure you're active and playing your games. If someone isn't playing their games and doesn't seem to care about their spot here, don't be surprised if it gets given to someone who actually wants it.

Well, try messaging GibsonGamer on XBL today and see if you get any kind of response. If you don't hear back from him by tomorrow, then yeah...we'll try to get something worked out with Flyersfan.

Trying to be as fair as I can about this. I don't want to just throw the guy out of the league, but at the same time...I don't know how people sign up for these things without the understanding that at least checking in every couple days might be a good idea.

N8, think about banning the squib kick if you haven't already.

If done correctly, it can be recovered every time. Just happened in my last two ranked matches.

Well, doing it on every kick off is pretty standard "douchebag procedure" anyway. You think it's bad enough to even ban it situationally though? I was wondering if there was something similar on punts.

Hemingway seemed to be intentionally shanking punts in our game yesterday, which was making them skip along the field, and my players had a way harder time than they should have recovering them. I was just coming in here to ask him what that was.

I don't mind people kicking for the sideline, but this just seemed "Maddeny" Special teams in this game really is terrible with how easily it is to return punts/kicks...and then how horrible the return team is if you kick it any other way.

If it is goign to go up for a vote I'd say to ban the squib kick every time, I've had 3-4 games where the other guy has recovered it 2-3 times in each game.

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

Cowboys 14, Giants 6

Cowboys take advantage of two Eli interceptions and the Giants inability to get into the end zone despite three trips to the red zone. The killer was a pick in the end zone with the Giants driving in the fourth.


I was sweating that game out man! The Giants driving the field with me scrambling to find a defense that could slow you down a bit. Looked like it was a bit of "bend but don't break" working in my favor. Still...very enjoyable game and good sportsmanship from you.

Don't completely ban the squib kick. Maybe just leave it as a "don't be a dick" rule and address it more formally if someone starts using it when they shouldn't be. Anyone squib kicking all game will probably be removed from the league pretty quickly anyways because they aren't playing realistically.

I'd hate to be forced to kick the ball to Devin Hester when I am up by 2 points and with 3 seconds left in the game. A squib kick would seal the win for me but a normal kick could result in Hester taking it to the house.

Yeah, I do honestly believe it's bad enough to be banned.

As for punts, if angled correctly near the boundaries, the returner will try to catch it but the ball will just bounce off their leg. I've had that happen to me as well.

Just another cheap way to get the ball back.

So say that situation does arise and I'm the Bears. You squib, fair enough.

You squib and recover? Yeah, that's stress I don't need.. :lol:

Even if it's just one time, it can still happen. The kick return AI is brain dead.

There is no difference between a squib that you recover with 0 seconds left in the game and a squib that i recover as the kicking team with 0 seconds left in the game. The game is over either way. But had i kicked it deep you could have returned it, or took the fair catch and ran one last play to win the game.

True, though there's still a shot something odd can happen and I get out of bounds, if squib works correctly.

Just saying it's a problem EA needs to address.
