Who was getting the ball in the 2nd half?

I'd be more pissed about not running the clock out at the end of the game then going for it on 4th and 1.

4th and 1 in the 1st quarter in your own territory you punt the ball. 21 points isn't insurmountable, especially when the guy is 6-3.

Saints 35, Failclowns 21.

1. Ok... I Got the ball to start the game. I THREW 3 PICKS ON MY FIRST DRIVES that turned into 3 TDs for the Falcons. I then had a 4th and 1 at the 50 yd line..

Your telling me Sean Payton isnt going to go for it on 4th and 1 at the 50 AGAINST his biggest rival IN THE SUPERDOME!!
I knew you would blitz so i threw a playaction to my FB who took it to the house. I needed a big play to boost my momentum and that was it.

I dont think you should be pissed about that. I shut you out for the rest of the game.
It is obvious who is the better player because if you take away the 3 picks that i threw in the 1st quarter (that were bonehead throws) I would have beat you 35-0...

2. I had the ball on Falcons about 15 with about 1:40 left and he had no timeouts. Yes, I could have kneed it. Honestly, i hate when ppl knee the ball against me. And I hate kneeing the ball. And it is easy as hell to run against you because you dont play defense, Sproles went in without being touched. It should take into account that it was against the Saints biggest rival, in the Superdome

Dude you were winning 21-0...

He was trying to turn it around! I have watched WV do it 3 or 4 times this season... Is it really uncommon?


You were down similarly and didn't go for it in our game? Why not? Shouldn't you have tried to 'swing the momentum'

Like Doom said (btw doom it wasn't Superstar, it was a newer guy) the commish team will make the final decision. Let's be realistic here. Down 21-0 in the 1st quarter with a 4 & 1 in your own territory 99% of NFL coaches will punt the ball.

he scored on his 4th and 1 play on a i formation pa pass play and after he did that i was so mad that i couldnt focus at first i saw he was taking his time picking a play and was thinking theres no way hes going to actually go for it hes on his own 43.


and im known for a good early start and a terrible ending in most of my games so ya im pretty pissed about it i always start off strong most people that have played me many times know i always start strong and seem to fall apart at the end i jsut cant help it



How about don't post in the forums during the game, and concentrate on picking better plays?

It was a 53 yd TD catch by my FB who was wide open.. It was too easy to predict what your defense was going to do.. So i was on my own 47 yard line.

I would like to point you here - League Rules

Specifically rule 1, 1a, 2b.

1- Stop being an asshole
1a - Kneel the damn ball
2b - If you're going to go for it be ready to defend it.

This damn board is what worries me! I wanted to go for it badly but didn't cuz of this bullshit backlash


I get that, but you gotta expect something like this would get discussed especially if you win the game after being down by 21.

Rubbing it in isn't the point of this league. This is a friendly league with no money on the line. Don't like kneeling? Tough shit, kneel it anyway.

It's Madden, weird stuff happens even against guys that aren't as skilled. It happens in real football too.

And he wouldn't have called you a douche had you knelt the ball at the end of game. Common sense.

well if ur so good at defense compared to me then why were u so worried then. i started the game with 3 picks my defense must be decent enough u can call them bonehead throws but i put the pressure on u to make thoughs throughs. all u did was change up ur game and it worked but i wouldnt say our skill level is to much different considering that fact that if u wouldnt have broke league rules u might have still won but the point is u had to break them to win. plus i would say its pretty easy to run the ball with a guy like sproles u took it to the outside must of the game ran right past them then took it up field no real talent there. its called madden speed

Bengals win 24-21 over the giants. Great game pitfall. He stuffed me on the goalline right at the half. I took the risk n went for it with no timeouts didnt get it done. Not quite as sad as brady's intentional grounding but close. Nugent kicked the game winning chip shot as time expired.

4th and 1 in the 1st quarter in your own territory you punt the ball. 21 points isn't insurmountable, especially when the guy is 6-3.


To be honest, I don't think it's a completely indefensible 4th down call. He's down big and he took a gamble (especially after being stuffed on 3rd and inches). I might have gone for it there as well, or tried a fake punt like Doom suggested. The idea is to arrest some of the momentum, and considering DVO acknowledged that's exactly what it accomplished, it seems like it was a smart tactical move.

The standard for going for it on 4th has always been that you should be able to defend the decision in the thread. I really don't think this one was that terrible, though I'd like to hear what fero and uber think about it as well.

now 2 TDs 143 left zero timeouts left he runs it in for a touchdown should have taken a knee but hes a douche im prolly going to quit before time runs out


neworlbush, do you acknowledge doing this?

just lost to the chargers thats fine w.e but the only thing that bugged me is he used the same cheap draw with tebow 12 times oh well if he has fun playing that way im happy for him, you win some you lose some.


No offense, but you've won every game since you've joined this league, and the fact that you follow up your very first loss with grousing about it doesn't make the strongest impression. Just something to consider.

I don't appreciate being called out on the forum like this when I played a fair game. I don't think there is anyone here who has had a problem with way I've played all season. The only QB running plays in the skins playbook are draws to the left or right and 12 runs from Tebow should be expected. It's not like he is an air it out QB. I didn't even run the ball once on a designed passing play.


Nothing wrong with the way he's playing from what I can see. I had to deal with the same thing against Cam Newton, and it's ridiculously frustrating to stop (since the AI plays it like braindead morons even if they've seen it a half dozen times in the game) but I don't think it's especially cheap. You've got to expect runs when you're playing against a running QB. It's a gimmick offense, but I don't think it's unfair or anything.
