You have no idea how painful and how boring it is when your team doesn't even make it across the 50

You have no idea how painful and how boring it is when your team doesn't even make it across the 50 in 3 quarters every game. And how frustrating it is to lose every game by 40+. It took all of the excitement out of it. I love my team and would love to keep playing and use my picks etc but I just can't force myself to continue to sit through it. It's not fun at all.


I understand completely. A lot of us have been there, even some of us who are pretty good at the game now.

Good luck with working on your game in the other league. If you feel like you've improved down the line you're welcome to come back, although in that case I hope you stick with it because we really don't want people hopping in and out.

i know aftershock would want the steelers for sure its his favorite nfl team


Hopefully he gets back to me first then.

Denver Broncos 34 - San Diego Chargers 7

The good version of this Broncos team decided to make a reappearance in time for this huge division game. The offense played well, but really this was all about a ridiculously great performance from the Broncos defense. Both my pass rush and my secondary played great, which is a pretty deadly combination for any offense. With the win, the Broncos move to 6-4 and into sole possession of 1st in the AFC West (for now...)

Brock Osweiler was 10 of 15 for 201 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs.

Tebow was 7 of 20 for 68 yards (41 of those coming on one play), 0 TDs and 2 picks.

McFadden had 13 carries for 93 yards and 2 scores. McGahee was mostly used in short yardage, carrying 11 times for 14 yards (but also coughed up a fumble, though thankfully the game was in hand at that point).

Mathews carried 7 times for 41 yards, though 28 of those came on his first carry. After that he was handled pretty well. Tebow carried 5 times for 27 yards and the Chargers' lone TD (a risky play running it in with 10 seconds left in the half and no timeouts, which was a smart move since it was the one play I wasn't expecting it).

Demaryius Thomas had 4 catches for 69 yards and a TD, while Dexter McCluster had 2 for 94, including an 81 yard score.

Eddie Royal had the lone big play of the day for the Chargers, catching a pretty deep ball for 41 yards which set up their TD.

Von Miller had a big day, with 5 tackles (4 for loss) including 2 sacks and a fumble recovery. The Broncos also got sacks from Williams, Wolfe and Mays and picks from Rahim Moore and (who else?) Tracy Porter. They also stopped the Chargers twice on 4th down from deep in their own territory, getting to Tebow both times.

The Chargers managed 3 sacks against Osweiler, and also forced a McGahee fumble.

gg Joely! I've definitely been preparing for the Tebow-centric attack since you've put it in place, and I think I handled it pretty well for the most part.

Okay. Well I'm going to plan to advance after the debate tonight. So he's got until then to play.

Hopefully mog has played the CPU by then as well.

I forgot. Yeah, we can do one. I'll figure out the details tomorrow and hopefully we can start tomorrow night.

Neither guy has posted in the thread saying they haven't been able to get in touch. I don't see how we can give someone a CPU game in that situation. Hopefully they get in touch and can play tonight.

GG man. Von Miller is a monster. Tebow had nowhere to go.

He really is. I drafted him in my offline franchise fantasy draft, and I've got him up to 99 finesse, 92 power, and 99 block shedding. He's basically unstoppable. Can't believe I ever considered moving him.

He only sacked Tebow twice, but he must have gotten a hand on him half a dozen times. Basically played the whole game in Tebow's back pocket. Just where I want him. :D

If Hammurabi doesn't want them (possible, since he passed up the Bucs when they came up) then you'll probably get them. I'm assuming Deuce isn't ready to come back yet.

Yup. With me. Which I definitely regret, since he gave us his word he was going to improve his communication. I'm obviously too trusting.

He didn't quit. We made the decision, he's just become far too hard to reach.

I fully accept that some people will say it was a mistake for me to trade with him. In hindsight, obviously it was. But what's done is done.

What players has he traded? And who did he get back?


Joe Haden, Brandon Weeden. Peyton Manning, Jacob Tamme (plus a couple of other scrubs).

Not at the moment, no. Teams really don't open up that often, I'd be surprised if we had another opening before the offseason (if even then).

Clash of the Titans tomorrow evening.

Texans 8-2 @ Lions 8-2

Looking forward to this one. Won two regular season meetings last year and got trashed in the Superbowl. For the most part though, our games are always competitive.
