Yeah i got lucky, i just so happened to see your guy out their by himself so i grabbed my lb and he pulled off a "through the other guy's hand" interception. I got lucky on that one.

But the rate im going, i should have one of the top picks come draft time :)

Oh and then right before halftime, i was almost positive i was mashing the timeout button with 1 second left. I dont know why i ran it. Bad call on my part. But like i said, one hell of a game.

Hello everyone. It is really unfortunate, but I have to drop out of this league. I had a bunch of unexpected expenses pop up, and a lot of games and blurays had to go to cover them, including Madden. Feel free to give my spot to someone on the waiting list. If I can get a copy of the game again sometime, I can check back in here again to see what is going on then.

Yup, too bad we can't save replays online anymore. Remember how last year, uploading replays completely screwed up the Franchise website? I guess EA couldn't figure out how to fix that, so the easier solution was just to remove uploading replays altogether, lol.

I was just gonna post man! LOL, Yea great game! Very respectful game. Once again TURNOVERS KILLED ME, I had you 7-0 and stuffed you at the goal line inthe first quarter to get the ball back. I thought, man this may be my game! NEXT PLAY freaking Spiller fumbled going up the middle and gives you the ball at the 15. It was downhill for me from there!

GREAT GAME MAN, Ill see ya in the future big guy!

I'm sorry but what was I doing?

I ran the ball up the middle and to the outside. I threw slants and curls as I throw picks if I try to do anything else.

You quit the game on me at the end of the 3rd.

Seems I played perfectly fine last season. I think he is upset cause he only had 56 yards rushing and -4 receiving. I can't help it my defense was coming up big, and he couldn't stop my offense. I played no differently then when I have played anyone else in this league this year or last (DVO, pitfall, n8, Doc, etc).

I have no problem discussing it right now.

I ran with Jacobs anywhere on the line/middle, I ran with my 4th string guy to the outside. Frank Gore, and Kendall Hunter are both hurt, I had to switch them out according to their strengths (mainly playing each in specific packages). I threw short passes of slants and curls mainly, maybe 1 or 2 deep throws. I limit my passes mainly to short cause I have a tendency to throw picks which I threw one even throwing short. My strength is my ability to run the ball which I think most people from last year know, I am not very good at passing the ball.

I never went for it on 4th. I never squib or onside kicked the ball. I never went 5 wide and ran with my QB. Anything else?

So people want to quit cause I am playing to my strengths?

It has nothing to do with the fact that I was losing. Last week I had my ass handed to me and was perfectly ok with that because my opponent didn't abuse the game. Just to clarify the thing that pissed me off with you was the fact that your using the same running play to the poit that your abusing a major flaw in the game. I literally blitzed with every player and I still couldn't stop you. That's what has me so pissed off.

Also don't act like you used a combo of passes and runs because you didn't. Overall you called maybe 6 passes.

I didn't call the same play, I varied plays from the outside and inside. On the outside I never ran it backwards, I angled forward or even. If you think I am running to the outside don't stack the box in a 4-3 and rush, go dime or a sub that way you have more players on the outside, simple as that.

James had 18 attempts, only used for rushes on the outside
Jacobs had 10 attempts, only used for rushes on the line
Smith was 7 for 11

Obviously I leaned a little more to running to the outside, and rushing in general cause that is my strength. However, playing a variety of plays is what keeps a defense guessing. It's called play calling, and changing plays at the line. I am sorry you feel like it wasn't fair.

Man Blade has run all over me for the past 15 years in LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE GAME WE PLAY!!! He beats me in everything...seriously! He is a heavy runner with the RB and he is dominant with pretty much any RB you give him. That being said he has been trying to incorporate more passing and seeing as how I play him more than ANYONE IN the league I can personal vouch for him and say that though he doesnt do your standard cross/cut and deep routes he plays smart. Short curls to decrease the chance of interception and has ALWAYS ran it to the outside. Is it questionable...NO....he is playing the game with respect, never runs up the score and always tries to do the honorable thing. To me you are the dick for quitting after a beating and not being able to finish a game and actually say hey man, GG. Instead you get on here, complain, WITHOUT EXPLAINING YOURSELF and quit at the same time.

When you say questionable tactics/play I think you are the one who needs to take a look. Im the TEXANs and right now im 1-2. Yea I get pissed and yes I throw a ton of pics but I dont quit a damn game because of it!

I think hes pissed because your smart and can read a defense? I know you do that to me all the time. By show of hands....OR SHAQFU thingy's (someone please tell me how to do that?)would anyone here would run STRAIGHT INTO A BLITZ or a stacked box on D for that matter?

AHAHAH THANKS FOR THE CONDESCENDING TONE from the guy who says "BLADE A DICK and I dont want to try and explain why so I quit during the game because he was running the ball to the outside when i stacked the box with D line and LB's. How dare he exploit the one weakness in the game I have no control over.....WAIT!"

Edit: I appologize for being brash gentlemen. I am normally fairly quiet and always respectable (EVEN WHEN I LOSE...BAD) so I do appologize for saying what I said to those of you who may not like what I said. However I cannot stand ignorance and the above comment from him is, to me, the epitom of ignorance.

I played Blade week 1 and I didnt have any issues....

Yea he ran a lot, but it was effective, so why not?

Gore was killing it until I knocked him out of the game.

Instead of mass blitzing, pick a LB and lock on the RB? Seems fairly simple of a task, and not an exploit.

The thing about Madden is it takes a LONG time to master the play calling and the defensive adjustments. If you're not shifting your DL/LB, audibling a corner or safety to blitz, etc. the good players will just dominate you. You can either come in here and ask for help with learning to stop the run, or you can quit and never get any better. If he's running hte ball all over you, at least you know what's coming, right?

It's just a matter of finding the right play call and making the right adjustments to get people in the right position to stop it. It's up to you if that's an endeavor you want to take on to improve your game. But I definitely wouldn't consider running the ball to be a "ranked tactic". I agree that the AI doesn't do a good job working together or taking the right angles...but that's why your play calling has to be that much better. If you don't make the adjustments yourself, you'll get run out of the building. That's how Madden has always been.

If you'd like advice on how to better stop the run, you're welcome to stay. That was the entire reason for why this league was created. It wasn't to just beat the shit out people and prove how big your e-dick is. It's to help people get better. It was stated numerous times last year that anyone unwilling to share tips to help people get better is not welcome here. But it's up to you to make use of those resources. But quitting is just going to leave you no better off than where you started.

You must have missed the public message part then. You want to have a private conversation, there's a way to do that. You're dragging someone through the mud in front of the rest of the league, they should get involved.
