The Chiefs finally got back to winning football, beating division rivalries handily at home. Several sacks and forced turnovers helped KC to a 31-7 victory over the Chargers.

Having freshly inked a new deal Dwayne Bowe broke 100 yards receiving for the second time this season. Charles struggled again but found the end zone twice and new starting QB Ricky Stanzi made big passwes when it counted, though he overthrew Jon Baldwin on what would have been a guaranteed touchdown.

GG JoelyPoley - I had to win sooner or later! Running the opening kickoff in for a quick 7 was awesome and like I said, my defense was stout. Not sure what clicked but I'm glad it finally did.

Heh, don't chalk yourself up at 0-5 yet. I did lose to bv of all people ;) and you do have Tebow...so...


I put Tebow in tonight for 2 plays. I believe the result was a negative 2-yard run and an INT. He was quickly taken out. I've sort of given up on developing him at all, but if the game is out of reach you might see him!

You sure have a lot of rules questions this season for one of the guys who's in charge of the rules. ;)


That's why I got you guys. I do keep up with the thread, but I just so happen to skip town in the middle of that conversation so I never saw the end of it.

This is my biggest problem. I'm hoping to right the ship with a new QB tonight.


Sanchez is not even that bad once I built up some of his medium throw. 86 short, 86 medium. It's the deep ball (73) that hurts him. Not that I should be looking deep with this offense anyway, but that's where I see those 1 on 1s.

Having 0 run game doesn't help either. Hey, this sounds a lot like the real Jets.

Great game between the Giants and Eagles. Vonta Leach and Brandon Jacobs are fitting in nicely.

Pitfall was playing great with Eli but I held onto the ball for 14:11 with 225 rushing yards and 3 rushing td's and Desean Jackson followed up a Punt Return Touchdown with a Kick Return Touchdown.

Eli was throwing some crazy streak route with Nicks that seemed like a glitch just cause Nahmdi and my safety were completely burnt. Not sure how he did that.

Anyways, 38-28 was the final score, good game Pitfall, looking forward to future ones.

Eagles go to 2-2 with the Steelers and Lions coming up next.

Thanks for wrapping up early guys, congrats on our first early advance of the year! Since the puppy woke me up in the middle of the night (as they do) I'll go ahead and advance us now. Deadline will still be Friday, though of course I wouldn't mind going Thursday if everyone finishes.

Edit: My math sucks in the middle of the night, go figure. Deadline is Thursday, that's 3 full days.

I don't think you can change a player's scheme, but you can change the scheme your team looks for at each position under the Strategy section in-game. That will help you identify which players will be good for that scheme.

Just sent out some of Tebow's key stats for a potential trade, and he's not too bad. The problem is all his accuracy lines are in the mid/low 70s, but he's got trucking + stiff arm in the 80s. 81 speed, 90 acceleration. I need to work this guy in!

But pretty easy to fix through XP! At least to get him to the 80s. I'm really thinking about dedicating myself to working on his accuracy this year, and have a true dual threat for next season. Who knows...

did my practice this morning and sat Gabbert on the bench. He seemed to get the point.

Jags 34 Bears 31
Gabbert gets 211 yards passing 3 tds and a perfect qb rating, that should get the coach off his back for another week

great game Zurezo

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...

:hot: BREAKING NEWS :hot:

Deal stuck between the New York Jets and San Diego Chargers. The key players in the deal will see Phillip Rivers in green and Antonio Cromartie returning to San Diego. Rumor has it, a AFC East rival was in play for Rivers so this may turn into quite the coup for NY. Details to come for approval...

So I have Whitehurst as a backup QB and I hate him. Obviously nobody wants him or wants him involved in a trade. Is there a way I can swap him out for another backup QB? Or am I forced to wait until the next FA period and waste my pick on a backup QB instead of someone who might actually help my team?

You've got to wait, though you could also wait and sign someone else in the offseason when it's unlimited.

I thought so. I'll probably just hold off until the offseason.

Same for me. I realize it's not readibly available online, but the deal so everyone knows is...

Jets send:
Tim Tebow, QB (80 OVR)
Antonio Cromartie, CB (88 OVR)

Chargers send:
Phillip Rivers, QB (88 OVR)
Shareece Wright, CB (69 OVR)

Cromartie's rating keeps going up. I thought he was an 86 lol

Edit: also Uber chose Wright over Ghilchrist (72 ovr) because Wright is a better man coverage guy. So dont let that rating throw you off.

You would think they would include this in their manual instead of sending us on a scavenger hunt.
