it sucks having that many restarts in a playoff game specially because they were all close but the last one. sucks to go out that way.

I don't really have much to say. After 7 quarters of football we started the 3rd game. Needless to say I had exhausted my playbook (25th ranked offense, represent!) and Mog knew what was coming.

Hali gets knocked out on the first play and the Ravens jump out to a 21 point lead because I couldn't stop Rice with my backup LB.

Ravens were up 38-0 at half and passed the ball all throughout the second half, mostly play action passes since he knew I was looking for the run. Up by 45 or something with less than 3 minutes in the 4Q he is still passing while in the red zone. Quite frankly I found it to be absolutely absurd and one of the worst games I've ever participated in.

To say that the Ravens are the defending Super Bowl champions of a league that I put a ton of time into (trade commitee) makes me sick. Show some class

That's unfortunate, I really hate that crap like that is still going on in this league.

Staticz I really wasnt trying to run the score up. Alot of my passes were 3-5 years passes. I have lost 2 games recently when trying to play conservative towards the end one against 1)doomtime and Chetty so I was trying to spread to different areas of the field.

Hopefully my D/ST plays as well next time. 17 of my points came off turnovers and a great punt return, all of which gave me the ball well within Bills' territory. Didn't do nearly as well when needing to drive the length of the field.


That definitely killed me. The few early drops that got me behind the sticks and your run defense early were the keys. Playing from 17 down that early is tough but I tried to stay within the game plan just couldn't get going. The hurry up worked late though, so that was encouraging. Looking forwad to next season.

This is an absolute horseshit excuse, mog. Up 38-0 and you still felt like you would lose after 3 games of what i'm pretty sure was domination? This league is not a "win at all costs" league. It's supposed to be fun for everyone involved.

You broke 3 rules in this game.
1. Don't play like a dick
1a. Don't run up the score.
2. Play like a real nfl coach would.

This is your last warning. Do not continue to play like this.

If people want to continue to "win at all costs", actions will be taken. And I'm not just picking out people who make the playoffs every year, there are teams with horrible losing records that play pretty underhandidly, as well.

It's time to get serious guys, all 32 members of this league are here to have fun, I can tell you it's absolutely NOT fun when 4, or 8, or 16 of those guys try to make the rest of the league feel like shit just so they can win a bloody football game on the internet.

Moving forward,I'm done handing out warnings. The next person to so blatantly ignore our league rules gets an immediate strike.

Were you also running the clock while executing this "not too conservative" offense?

out of all the games this was the only one that was dominated. But with this score no need to pass. Cheifs could of won the other ones though.

I'd assume we'll follow roughly the same timetable we did last season, though without as many pauses for us not knowing what we're doing.

ya gotta milk the clock, but there are times when short passes are safer calls than run plays in situations like that. i donno about 38-0 but if ur up a few scores trying to milk the clock, running into a blitz can be dangerous. more for ur guys getting injured and also fumbles in the backfield. im not defending mog im just sayin. in my opinion if ur up 28 points in the 4th and you have the ball, the game should be over, but 21 points can happen pretty fast with a little luck n madden bullshit, especially if you have the ball early in the 4th.

my point is running into a blitz is risky, a short throw here or there is smart and shouldnt be complained about, not saying thats what happened here tho

If injury is a concern, use your backups. If there's a time for starters to be pulled, certainly up 50 points in the 4th quarter of a playoff game is it.

Yeah, i'm sorry, nothing in your post merits running up the score 59-0 during a playoff game, let alone a regular game.

That being said, to address bseti's point, I don't think people should be calling big blitzes to defend the run when they're down 40 points. At that point the game is over, doing that is pointless.

Ramesu was big blitzing to stop my running game late in our game, but it was entirely appropriate since it was still a game he could have conceivably won. I chose to keep running it into those blitzes but I doubt he'd have had a problem if I threw against it instead. But we're talking about a 16-point game, not a 40-point one, it's a big difference.

now your telling how to coach my players, Well Bray is a big part of my team and stewart my 3 string rb has a carry of 75 so I know his chance of fumbling is very high

Yea the score was ugly and i agree and i also agree it looks like i ran the score up but my stats doesnt say so and i really wasnt trying to at the same time.

Do you understand what the word "if" means? Because it really doesn't seem like you do.

I was hardly running blitzes. Sitting in the 3-4 running 2 man under. Mog was running play action passes to suck down the linebackers (who would have been covering the TE in a 3-4). He was up by 38 at halftime and held me to 37 points across the previous 9 quarters. It was obvious I wasn't going to make a comeback.
