Cardinals 34 - Seahawks 10

 

The Arizona Cardinals came up with a big win against a tough division opponent when they knocked off Seattle at home to hand the Hawks their first loss of the season. The Cardinals were in trouble early after starting running back Armond Smith coughed up the ball on his own 30 yard line giving Seattle the ball with an already 3-0 lead. The Seahawks capitalized on the fumble and scored a TD putting them up 10-0. That however is where the game took a dynamic shift as the Cardinals ended up scoring the next 34 consecutive points. Once again the Cardinals D has been lights out holding the number 1 ranked Seattle offense to under 190 total yards in the game. The Cards defensive had two interceptions in this one and one of which was returned for a TD.

 

Tajh Boyd continues to lead the way for the Cardinals this season as he strung together another good game. Boyd went 16/21 passing and had 210 yards through the air and added one TD. Boyd continues to lead all starting QB's with a completion percentage of 83% and has a league leading 148 QB Rating. The Cardinals mean business this year.

 

Good Game Timbo!

Not going to lie, that was the cheesiest game I have ever played in this league. Don't get me wrong, I was terrible and deserved to lose. When 4/5 of your opponent's first drive plays are read option, you know what kind of a game your in for.

Good game Doo Mane, it's not that you're not better than me (which I think you are). It's just disappointing to lose that way. I am glad you toned it down once you had me demolished at the end of the first half. Good game once again. Next time we play I will be better prepared for the pistol and read option.

Declined - The group was split, however the consensus seemed to be White's large contract and age hurt his value.


Resubmitting Falcons also add this yrs 3rd rd pick

I mean this with as little offense as possible, but that's exactly your play style so I'm not exactly sure what your complaining about?

I guess he used your gameplan of sticking to one thing you ran the Shotgun counter / sweep a tally of 17-19 (2 were read options or inverted Veer ) times in our game, to add insult to injury with 23 seconds down 1 point left in the game on your own 20 yard line you decide to run the Shotgun Counter twice, and a read Option, only to have Jamaal Charles break a 73 yard run,  What real NFL coach would do that none but being that the play is an exploit you decided to go that route, having played both of you multiple times I haven't ran into anybody who commits as much cheese as you, quite frankly next game we play I think I will adopt your playstyle as it seems Doo Mane may have and that seemed to work.

Browning u are the definition of cheese, easily the cheesiest in the league right now. Ur play style goes against everything this league stands for.

Alright, I feel the need to respond to all these accusations. Then, if the league wants me to resign, I will be more than happy to.

 

I would also like to note, that no one has ever brought up a problem with my playstyle until now (Minus a PM from Uber a week ago, which I have been trying to improve on.). Sure, we got a little "he's the worst person ever" from Hemmingway, but that doesn't really give me much information on what precisely I am doing. If you just assume that I am an evil master scheming over here, you would be wrong.

 

Third, I am passed Doo Mane's game. I lost and that is that. I need to better learn to stop his offense. Yes, I know how to do that, I was foolish not to.

 

I mean this with as little offense as possible, but that's exactly your play style so I'm not exactly sure what your complaining about?

 

I don't quite know if that's fair. I strongly believe in a strong run and play action, which is why 45% of my plays come from the pro set. Yes, I realize that I have had major issues throwing. I threw some 25+ interceptions, so that's not going to be my primary strength. I have been trying to throw a lot more this year, and have 700+ yards in five games.

 

 

Brown wing u threw 2 times vs me the rest was Pistol or shotgun counter so ur comment is funny to me! This was last season by the way

 

I obviously don't remember our entire game. If I can recall though, I knew you were drastically better than me. The only way I was going to beat you was ball control. However, you are absolutely right that I needed to pass the ball more. 

 

Also, please note that I didn't have a problem with Doo Mane running the ball. This is something I have to be better at preventing. I was annoyed because the first drive was almost entirely the same play. If he wants to run the ball the whole game that's fine with me. Heck, I would endorse it.  

 

I guess he used your gameplan of sticking to one thing you ran the Shotgun counter / sweep a tally of 17-19 (2 were read options or inverted Veer ) times in our game, to add insult to injury with 23 seconds down 1 point left in the game on your own 20 yard line you decide to run the Shotgun Counter twice, and a read Option, only to have Jamaal Charles break a 73 yard run,  What real NFL coach would do that none but being that the play is an exploit you decided to go that route, having played both of you multiple times I haven't ran into anybody who commits as much cheese as you, quite frankly next game we play I think I will adopt your playstyle as it seems Doo Mane may have and that seemed to work.

 

First of all, I don't run the inverted veer. I just don't like it. Second, I don't really run many sweeps due to how well this league can protect them. Therefore, I am basically being accused of running seventeen counter plays? I don't think that's entirely accurate. I don't remember exactly, but typically, I run around 4-8 counters per game.

 

If you're going to give me hell over not acting "like an NFL coach," I would just like to make a note about what you did at the end of the game. I almost posted about it that night, but I decided to give you the benefit of the doubt because I do respect you. Anyway, it was 41-42 and you had just scored and you went for two. I don't know what NFL coach would do that? Sure, we can say Bill Belichek, but even in crunch time, I don't think he would risk it, he would go for the field goal to tie it. However, you went for twp and you got with your 6'6" qb on a sneak.

 

In regards to the last drive, I was annoyed. I had twenty three seconds to do something and I got incredibly lucky. I don't think that counter out of the shotgun is an exploit though. An exploit would always work, where as this play is easily shut down by lots of people Chetty, Hemmingway, Doo Mane, even yourself have found ways to shut it down.

 

Browning u are the definition of cheese, easily the cheesiest in the league right now. Ur play style goes against everything this league stands for.

 

I don't know about that, but I respect your opinion to think so. Haven't we only played once, last year?

 

I feel I have decently laid out my argument. If the league feels the need for me to leave, I will do so with no contention. However, I would also like note that I am trying to pass more this year and heavily tone down the 3-5 times a game that I used the read option. I am certainly not running it as much as I was last year.

 

If it would make anyone feel better, I would be open to adopting an entirely new play book. I currently use the Panther's playbook. Would that help?

 

Edit: One last thing, I have no intention of being disrespectful in all this. I respect everyone in this league, whether or not you will respect me.

Couldn't quote you due to my work computer Brownwing, but it was 17-19 times because I tallied it as we played before I knew what to expect in our matchup and I figured I would tally it, and "exploit" may have been a poor choice of vocabulary on my behalf, but the shotgun counter slash sweep are overpowered in this game according to Operation Sports and other website's that are easily found through a google search, against a typical defense without overloading and committing too many players to one side with a speed back it almost gurantees 8-10 yds each time. It also tends to cause DB's in Man coverage not to respond unless run commited due to the AI on All-Pro according to another user on Operation Sports but thats all in debate. Regardless though yea I went for 2 I figured if we went to OT you would run counter or sweep til you scored so instead I went to seal the win, real coaches occasionally go for the win, if they convert they are a genius, if they don't they are scrutinized, If Im not mistaken I know Im not the first to do this I know Duece did earlier in the season although he did not convert. As is you aren't the first to run basically the same play as did MOG do this with the zone read, but we clearly saw what that gets you. I would like to believe that you just lost count that you ran a shotgun run play 17 times but than I remember you were the same guy running Jamaal Charles on Kickoff returns , and last season you were running scams with the Tight End.

 

All in All I don't typically complain because it's all good, I got some "overpowered " stuff I will introduce you to in our next matchup and I will only run it "4-8" times also to stay in spirit with your gameplay style.

I played BrownWing in the preseason. BrownWing specifically drafted Manziel for his 88 speed/92 acceleration. Every person here is allowed to run his team the way he chooses. Hello Tanabeo starting Pat White as his starting QB? I ran the Panthers playbook last year with Newcomer and led the league in QB runs mostly thanks to the option. Nobody complained, because it didn't help me win many games;-/ If you can't stop the option, sure, the HB's going to get a big gain. It lies on the shoulders of the DEFENSE to stop this. I played him in the preseason and defeated him, and the whole time we were on voice comms. Manziel ran 11 times for 136 yards and 2 Touchdowns. Did i complain? no. Did i call him a "Cheeser", no. I proceeded to ADJUST my defense to his gameplan and ended up defeating him.  Brownwing actually stated right here that he'll adjust to it the next time he plays against it. 

 

 

Good game once again. Next time we play I will be better prepared for the pistol and read option.

 

There's nothing in the rules that states this is cheese, nor do the commissioners think this is cheese. Everyone plays their own style of football. 

 

BrownWing has thrown the ball 76 times for 717 yards, and ran the ball 157 times for 1231 yards. Yet everyone's complaining about his playstyle.

 

Let's compare this to sprice (no offense sprice, just using you as a marker.)

 

He's thrown the ball 144 times for 1921 yards in 5 games. He's only run it 71 times for 571 yards.  Nobodies complaining about the way sprice plays the game. 

 

There's got to be a point where we let guys play their game. Sprice has obviously found something that works stupidly well. None of us have a found a way to stop it often enough for him to "change it up" 

 

Moving Forward. If you have a problem with how someone plays, please see a commissioner directly via pm. Dragging somebody's name through the mud publicly on the forums only leads to comments like: "Brownwing u are the definition of cheese, easily the cheesiest in the league right now." Add-on comments like these are what fuels fires. We don't need it here.

 

Now, if you boys want to continue to badmouth other players openly in this league, i'm happy to step down as the commissioner and let bseti run things. Just a thought for a rainy day. The reason i say this. We're already down 2 Players. With the Xbox One coming out tomorrow, I honestly don't see us lasting much past this season. The faster you throw fuel on the fire, the hotter it burns, and the quicker it dies, gentlemen. Let's keep this in mind.

 

We're all here to have fun. This isn't Knockout Kings.

I don't even start Johnny Football. I only played with him in the preseason for the heck of it. I have a grand total of 42 yards rushing with Alex Smith on twenty caries with him (about four per game).

 

While, I do still dislike the excessive read option, I should have countered it better. It was incredibly immature of me to call him out last night.

It's not about being "wrong" It's about contacting a Commissioner to talk about things. When you have issues with a coworker, you don't scream in the front of everyone. You contact H.R./ your boss and talk about things privately so they can be dealt with properly. 

 

You've never contacted me or staticz about this. Sorry mate. 

 

For the record, Cru contacted us via pm about charles, and the problem was addressed.

I specifically remember several of you who are calling Brownwing cheesy, saying that we need less rules and that people should run what they want. This came up when Mog ran one play against me for the whole game, no one had a problem with it then. 

 

Everything fero says stands for me as well. If you guys want to toss shit around like that, count me out. Pretty sure N8's league is a lot more strict about play style and Brownwing is still there.

Yea fair enough I personally think I just play to constrained given my interpretation of the rules in fear of being a "cheesy" player but instead I think I need to open my gameplay style up more and test the limits of my gameplay style.
