I am not sure who I play since my internet hasn't been working for a few days now. Suddenlink is coming this morning so hopefully the issue is resolved..

Harris would you mind please giving me back Taylor? I had no idea he would be cut.


I don't mind, I'll drop him later today when I get on Madden. For future reference though, you're responsible for your own roster, the CPU is only going to make cuts if you don't do it yourself. Take this is a useful reminder always to stay on top of your roster. You're fortunate I'm the one who picked him up.

Just to clarify, we're not going to be shuffling rosters because of CPU cuts. I'm dropping him as a courtesy to a new guy in the league, I'm not going to oblige anybody else to do the same. CPU cuts are a risk you run if you don't stay on top of your rosters.

Jags vs Patriots going down. My 55OVR 6th Round QB will be making the start. He seemed really good in practice/preseason. Should be interesting.

Chiefs - 45
Browns - 10


Welp...first game to produce a highlight video and I didn't hit record :roll:

Chiefs were dominate in this one scoring 14 points in the first minute of the game thanks to Charles and Eric Berry. After that there wasn't much swinging the Browns way. Manning 8 for 18 with 1 TD and 4 INTs and the Browns running game only managed to gain 35 yards.

35 yards on the ground isn't very good but the Chiefs managed -3 passing yards....yes negative three yards. Luckily Charles was in charge (see what I did there), rushing for 201 yards on 20 carries.

The game ball has to go to Josh Cribbs who was nearly cut after a lackluster preseason. Cribbs ran a punt back for a score and had returned a FG attempt for a 109 yard score!

Defensively Flowers and Berry both had a pair of INTs while rookie OLB Alves led the team with 2 sacks.


GG Mile High! Things just didn't go your way in the beginning and it is always tough to come back from that.

Yes it was a very tough game for me. My Linebackers are complete garbage. I counted at least 3 or perhaps 4 times where I had Charles stuffed in the back field for a loss and yet he still managed to get by my linebackers for a 10+ yard gain. Very frustrating.

My running game was ok but I had to abandon it so early due to being down 21-3. I wish I could of provided a more balanced attack.

Perhaps the one area of the game that frustrated me most was the coverage by Flowers. No matter what route I had Platt run, Flowers was there. This despite the fact that Platt has terrific release and incredible speed. I don't get how he never once got separation.

Lastly great punt returns for a TD by Cribbs. Nicely done though I noticed the 109 yard play did not count as a kick return TD or punt return TD, so that really sucks. He was only credited with one TD.

With that said, I am in need of some upgrades at LB. Please send an offer.

Flowers' brother-in-law is one of the lead developers on Madden, there's secret code in the game that makes him impossible to throw on. True story.

Jaguars over come Patriots 20-17

My Rookie QB Delonte Flowers came to play, and ended up going 12-19, 201yds, 2Tds, and 1INT. He was dead on almost all game. Great game og! I explicitly focused on Gronk, and you got me a couple of times with Lloyd.

Panthers are in the NFC, you play them no matter what. And we both play the Bengals. Only difference is you get Doom and I don't, and then you get the Bills while I get the Jets.

This. You can swap them out mid-drive, but you need to send your opponent a message saying you are. If it's to start a drive, no message is required.

Pause the game and tell him to stop.

Doo Mane, please review the rules on hot swapping QBs.

The game is over now. He was clearly better than me. I am not making excuses for my loss and I am not sure if he was aware of the rule (since I wasn't either obviously, haha). Hopefully he doesn't do it again though.

Edit: He apologized and didn't know the rule. All is well!
