Is there a way to adjust the per year amount when negotiating with Free Agents?


Not that I've seen. I believe it will structure them that way automatically. I could be wrong though.

He can cut a player. If you're at 52 after the deal, you can add back the guy you dropped for FA.

Trade up for review!

Chargers send:
Phillip Rivers (age 30) (88 overall) 4yrs remaining, 12.62 mill in 2012, 98 mil total
S. Wright (age 25) (69 overall CB) 4yrs remaining, 600k in 2012, 2.8 mil total

Jets send:
Cromartie (age 28) (88 overall CB) 4 years remaining, 8 mil in 2012, 32 mil total
Tim Tebow (Age 25) (78 overall) 5 years remaining, 2.87 mil in 2012, 15 mil total

I wrote this on a tablet so I kept it as short as I thought was sufficient. Let me know if more info is a must.


I am fairly certain this will put the Jets over the salary cap for this season (feel free to check my math, I have it at about $750K over). That doesn't mean we won't allow it, just that he'll need to make another roster move (either another trade or a cut) before it could be approved. So it might take a bit longer than normal to review, we're on it though.

I don't want to slander anyone being the new guy... but really going for it on fourth and 5 from the 43 in the third quarter? and then i guess it is pretty easy getting squib kicks. I had two kicked toward the sideline on me and one was recovered.

You're not slandering anyone, these are both legitimate issues.

1) Was it his 43 or yours?
2) When did these squib kicks occur in the game?

The squib kicks i wasn't trying to say he did it on purpose, they were both late in the game and the one he recovered didn't affect the outcome. That doesn't really bother me, i was just pointing out i see now how people could take advantage of it.

And it was my 43, and i understand that's a situation most people might go for it on fourth and short. But fourth and 5 seems a bit ridiculous to me and to wait until the clock had run down, it just caught me off guard and then to do a play action pass for 30 plus yards just was very frustrating.

Edit: It also would have been one thing if it was an offensive battle and we were both driving up and down the field and needed each possession but i had scored on the first drive and a punt return.

Alright, well it's possible that we weren't completely clear on this and we haven't officially added it to the rules yet, but we will.

For everyone's information: Squib kicks with any intent to recover are banned. Because of the poor AI on these, this includes any squib kick which is angled even a millimeter off of center. The point of a squib kick is to prevent a return, not to have a chance to recover it. Squib kicks should only be done when logical for the game situation, and must be kicked straight down the middle every time.

I will add this to the rules tonight.

And it was my 43, and i understand that's a situation most people might go for it on fourth and short. But fourth and 5 seems a bit ridiculous to me and to wait until the clock had run down, it just caught me off guard and then to do a play action pass for 30 plus yards just was very frustrating.


Based on the box score, I assume he was down 14-7 at the time? I think this should be a punt or a field goal, but I don't think it's the most egregious example I've seen. I'm curious what others opinions are though.

I went for it on fourth cause I needed to get some momentum. I knew if I gave you the ball back you would have scored. Then it would have been 21-7.Field goal was 60 yards and you had already returned one punt back for a td. Madden even said to go for it.

You know that thing that doesn't exist in madden...And that punt i returned was from around midfield, not my own 10 yard line. If you honestly were afraid i would return a punt from that range, then i just dont know.

The third quarter is a little early to go for it on 4th and 5 down by only one score, in my opinion.

I'm not judging the decision one way or the other, but this is not sound logic. How did you know he would have scored? Seems like he'd scored exactly one offensive touchdown the entire game. Basing the decision to go for it on the assumption that he would have scored doesn't really gel.

And returning a punt which is kicked from the 43 is extremely unlikely.

I was orginally going to go to the line of scrimmage. Then see if I could get a penality called. I knew that you also move your safety to plug up the hole that's why I did the play action pass.

When I played the bears he went for it on 4 and 2 he was on his 38 with the first drive in the game. Lol

I think this is the key for me. If the game was 42-35 or something, I could see this as a more defensible decision since there is a very realistic expectation that your opponent would score. But in a game in which your defense has allowed exactly one TD, I think this is a clear punting situation at that stage in the game. If you're worried about a return, kick it out of bounds, which you should be trying to do anyway from that point on the field.

When I played the bears he went for it on 4 and 2 he was on his 38 with the first drive in the game. Lol


That is also not okay, in fact it's worse, and if you'd pointed that out to someone they would have said so. Two wrongs don't make a right.

You ran the playclock down to around 10 seconds of course I had to come down you were throwing slants and out routes the whole game. Running down the clock assured you that I couldn't make any adjustments to your formation. That was honestly the biggest load of BS about the play

Scared you are going to have a punt run back? Kick it out of bounds....

4th and 1 or 2 I'd say maybe ok in second half but not 4.

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