Jets lucked out and knocked out gunslinger (and already 2nd string QB) TJ Yates and to beat the Texans, 38-21.

My run first offense was completely shut down so I took to the air. Geno went for 342 yards, 2 passing TDs, 1 rush.

Rookie QB Trickett (3rd stringer) was the downfall for Houston, throwing 3 picks and getting sacked 3 times.

Highest yards per carry was TJ Yates at 7. Next? 1.7 for my rookie Yeldon. 1 for Geno. .9 Dyer. .4 Foster. Yeah it was an ugly run game.

GG.

I think we can all understand his frustrations. Staticz even apologized for it himself so we can all assume he gets it. But it's one thing to be frustrated and another to call for one of the commissioners to be "fired" (whatever that means). I don't think we'd find too many members sending in applications for the job vacancy either.

Are we all just waiting for Chetty to quit this league so there's an even playing field? Haha, have no shot against that guy. Not even close. GG.

James Jones drops a TD that would send it into OT. Can't believe I just lost by 7. Threw at least 2 picks in the back of his endzone, 3 picks total. I love it when you guys start running the clock on essentially one of the worst players in the league with 3+ mins left. Good to know I still scare you :D

28-21 Pats. GG og.

I feel so much better about my Madden performances watching the real Jets.

48 seconds left, new first down, opposing team has 1 timeout. Throw for a TD?? Yup, that's the play in this league.

GG og, you play like a ranked player. I particularly liked the kickoff exploit where my returner never got the ball.

Jets-Pats looks like we won't match up until tomorrow afternoon. I was around last night and this afternoon, and he's around tonight. 

 

In the meantime, I wrote up a little recap the last week's close loss to the Steelers and previewing the Pats game very briefly at the end.

Edit: After rereading, pretty hilarious I didn't pluralize "fan" so there was only one Jets fan watching this game hahah.

Jets almost won. Brady Quinn looked pretty good out there after both Geno Smith and Holmes went down early in the 2nd half. Quinn got the Jets into the red zone down 3 with 4 seconds left. I considered kicking the FG for OT, but my defense was pretty inconsistent and I could see the Steelers scoring on their first possession. So I went for it and Quinn woke up from his dream and sailed a pass out of bounds. Game over.

You know, the NFC South is going to be a really lonely division if dvo doesn't reappear.

Edit: Wait! I just realized the Uber took over the Saints! Maybe it wont be so lonely after all.


Yup, now I just gotta beat the Falcons in my 2nd meeting or they may run away from the division on us haha.

If you play off-man and sell out to blitz you can't bitch when someone throws a curl route. There are tons of effective ways to defend curl routes. I will run a curl anytime my read says that's the correct play. You can 'rob' the curl with purple zone on the d-line if you wanna play off-man. You can press the receiver if you wanna stop the curl, you can call cover 2 (regular or sink) and so on. That's a very short list of ways to stop the curl that are far more effective than bitching about it.

Defense is about figuring out how to stop the offenses best attack and living with everything else...there is no defense in the game that stops everything but you've got to choose. Be more tactical in your defensive play-calling


Considering you ran the majority of the time and I kept that in check, I would say I picked something to stop and did it. It just so happened when you needed a first down the curl was there. And lets not act like I was calling the same play each time and throwing my hands up wondering what went wrong. I pressed the majority of the 2nd half and the curl was still there. Purple zoning my d-line seems to be setting me up for failure because as I said, you ran most of the time.

I wouldn't mind looking into a more strict set of trade rules, but I've always sided with the purists here. I'm more of a sim guy for Madden versus fantasy.
