I don't think a firestorm is necessary, but I would've been just as annoyed if you'd done that against me. I'd say his frustration there was justified.


The practice of going for it on 4th down and running it with the QB out of a 5 wide set is alright? I just want clarification because than I know it is something I could possibly do if need be.

I have always interpreted the rule as you can't send everyone deep and then take off. Depending on the play, there could have been several defenders around.

If it is fourth down and no one is open I'm taking off as well. What did you expect? Him to take a sack and give you the ball of the 50, that would be moronic.

You're conflating several questions here. Going for it on 4th down is, and always has been, based on the context of the play. I think everyone would agree that the Colts going for it there was fine.

The play call itself is another matter. Here is the rule on QB scrambling:

2d. Running with the QB
Scrambling is allowed. However, you need to do it in a way which is realistic and consistent with how real NFL players do it. Constantly calling 5-wide formations and then scrambling up the middle after the coverage drops is cheese, not strategy. Scrambling should generally either be from designed QB run plays or occur after a play breaks down.



I'm not going to excoriate him for doing it once, even though like I said I would have been annoyed by it as well. I'm willing to take him at his word that it wasn't his aim for the play when he called it, since like he said he almost never runs with Luck. If it became a pattern, for anyone, that would be a problem and at that point a clear violation of the rule.

I really lucked out there. Not necessarily because I think I couldn't have won it, but a sim loss would have really hurt at this point.

Lions vs Jags going down! Can the #2 defense beat the #1 offense?

Any word on the other two games? Sounds like Cowboys-Saints might be a sim, but I know I saw mog posting about Chargers-Ravens in here yesterday.

Wow sprice, what a game! My defense looked awful, but boy did MJD show up. I don't understand how your receivers just flat out "outrun" my cornerbacks. They were wide open, and I have some good corners. Anyway, good game!

I'd like us to advance no later than 8, so that will be the fallback time unless we hear about these games.

Anyone else see that Madden 14 will actually be called Madden 25. Why they ever switched from the full year is beyond me, but this is dumb.

its the 25th anniversary game thats what i found when i read about it. they wanted to celebrate it with the name its pretty stupid though for when 2025 comes around and they have another madden 25 unless that year they call it madden 2025 which they might do. or after this year start using the entire year from now on like madden 2015

75% of the guys in the league could do that pretty easily if they only threw the ball and almost exclusively to one guy.
