my 10 awareness rookie CB continues to take the league by storm!!! Leading my team with 9 picks now I think....I don't even switch to him to make any interceptions, I just let him do his thing, jumping routes...no big deal.


Further evidence that awareness needs to go. :D

It's hard for me to spot someone 14 points after minutes earlier putting up the go ahead score with minutes to go and my opponent having to drive the length of the field. I'm pretty good at sticking with games but a 21 point swing thanks to lag? Can't do it.


We've all been there, no doubt it sucks. I still remember my dream start against you which got wiped out by a disconnect, and that was only the 1st quarter. :lol:

I still feel like lag has been getting a lot worse league-wide in season two, we almost never seemed to have issues in the first season but now it seems like it's much worse. I know I've been lagging a lot more as well.

Oh, and I had to play Game 2 without Keller (not sure how long he is out) and I lost a fumble (which I generally attribute to Madden randomness). I will try to stop there.

Down 14-0 in the 2nd and already giving up? Who are you, fero? ;)

Major difference between 7 or even 7 and the ball (I don't remember your start exactly) with essentially the whole game and countless drives left and 7 points and what would be the final chance to simply tie. I know shit happens and I sure as hell didnt expect to win out but that's a different level of Madden bullshit is all I'm getting at. Especially since it had the nerve to lag ALL GAME and then cut out at that very moment.

It was actually a great back and forth game between the Redskins and Jets. The kickoff return was BS in its own right but I would've shrugged it off IF it was the initial game. As I said, the disconnect, the kick return, just too much Madden bullshittery for me to handle.

Don't mind me. I'll just be seething at Madden until we finally advance on Sunday!

Well, you need better corners. ;)

When I scouted your roster before the game my main takeaway was "I should be able to throw." Jackson and Thomas are a pretty good mismatch against anyone but shutdown CBs. My game plan actually called to pass a lot more, but the flow of the game ended up dictating the run, especially with the way McGahee was bouncing off of dudes.

Trust me, it was just as frustrating watching Jerome fricking Simpson repeatedly shake off Joe Haden and his 98 man coverage. :D


Simpson is legit, and highly underrated.

Christmas Hangover Confirmed

Texans Fall to Panthers 24-14

Not much to say here, MA came out with a great gameplan that kept me playing from behind the whole game. Foster never got it going on the ground which gave Rivers plenty of opportunities to make mistakes. 2 picks by Carolina's scrub CB and that was all she wrote.

GG MA


Ma came to play vs me also.... Good run attack with Steve smith burning CBS on both sides.. Defense sack after sack.. Knocked out 2 of 4 Super Bowl winners is this his big run for a Super Bowl... Stay tuned

Simpson and Kyle Rudolph did me dirty also... Rudolph jumpin over guys for catches lol........
I dunno I think awareness matters but who knows... All my CBS awareness is low... I played the practice and the CPU had 4 3rd and long first down on a terrible lobbed throw that my cb couldn't get to... Could be play recognition I guess but my CBS are garbage

If he can get open against Joe Haden, I have no reason to doubt that what you say is true. :D

When I had the Vikings in madden 12 Kyle Rudolph was a beast! He always acted like Gonzales or Witten for me lol. I never understood why, but he's good in real life too.

So you're saying you'd rather play Seti than Mog?

Nvm....I see what you mean. Seti would be the 2 not the 3. Agreed the 6 is looking a helluva lot better.

Nope. Looks like the Bengals are on track for a bye, which would mean the Ravens are likely looking at the 5 seed. That's a tough first round matchup for whoever gets the 4. The 6 seed meanwhile would probably travel to whoever finishes higher of the West/East winners. Historically, an easier matchup than mog, but who knows this season.

Right now it's down to Ravens, Broncos, Chiefs, Jets, Bills, and Pats fighting for 4 spots. Should be an interesting finish.

Let's take a look at the state of the race, with remaining scheduled for each team (other contenders in bold) along with the head-to-head tiebreakers:

Ravens (8-3): Texans, Browns, Colts, Browns, Cardinals
Wins over: Bills
Losses to: Broncos

Chiefs (7-3): Bills, Broncos, Raiders, Jets, Steelers, Bears
Wins over: Broncos (1 to play), Patriots
Losses to:

Broncos (7-3-1): Chiefs, Chargers, Raiders, Texans, Dolphins
Wins over: Ravens, Bills
Losses to: Chiefs (1 to play), Jets
Ties: Patriots

Jets (7-4): Pats, Bills, Chiefs, Raiders, Eagles
Wins over: Broncos
Losses to: Bills (1 to play), Patriots (1 to play)

Bills (6-4): Chiefs, Dolphins, Jets, Cowboys, Giants, Raiders
Wins over: Jets (1 to play), Patriots (split)
Losses to: Broncos, Ravens, Patriots (split)

Pats (5-4-1): Raiders, Jets, Bengals, Dolphins, Chargers, Giants
Wins over: Bills (split), Jets (1 to play)
Losses to: Chiefs, Bills (split),
Ties with: Broncos

Will be interesting to see if that tie comes back to haunt either the Broncos or the Pats. Very well could.

Well still no response from the new bears owner. Should i wait longer or go ahead and play the computer? I could wait longer if need be. I do hate playing the computer but if it helps us advance sooner then it is what it is.

EDIT: well its been 2 days and still no word from the new bears owner. on the better hand though the extra time ive had has given me the chance to watch the final 2 two episodes of the game of thrones season 2. now i have to wait all the way till march 31st for season 3 to start.
