Haha, thanks. I was looking through the faces, and I was like "this looks just like him". So, I had to go with it.

I tried cutting my lowest TE and I accidentally cut one of my best. I just resigned him in case it looks like I was messing with Free Agents.

Here's the league website for anybody interested.

Sadly, it looks exactly the same as the past couple years. No improvements whatsoever. I can only hope it doesn't break itself and show half of our teams as not having owners like it did last year.

 

Also, it looks like we still have a few guys who haven't joined yet. Kaster has explained his situation, but both siradam134 and Heidenreich still have pending invites as well. I'm going to put a hard deadline of tomorrow, 9/14 at 11:59PM ET for advance. If they join and get their players cuts done before then, then we can advance early.

 

But ready or not, we'll be moving on to the regular season 9/14 at 11:59 PM ET!

It's the new head coach's fault: Dr. Stupid. It's his first year running an NFL Team, all his prior experience was in Cricket, he's hoping to make a late life career transition.


EDIT - Holy shit, I just noticed one more. The Colts went from an 87 OVR to a 79 OVR. They're rated lower than the Titans...

Since soliddragon quoted Nate's post, it reminded me: the overall team ratings I saw when joining were different than those Nate posted. So yes, it does indeed depend upon the style of coach that you create.

Yeah, but don't you pick your team before creating your coach? That's when I saw them. And what I saw was the same as what was posted on OS.

If anything, it should be each team's scheme rating in relation to their real coach.

Nevermind. I guess Madden knows everything. Colts, Texans, and Jags lose today. Titans score more points in the first half than they did in any ENTIRE game last season and rout Bucs. Mariota had more TD passes than he did incompletions. Titans in first place. Clearly, Super Bowl bound, lol.

 

Of course, I don't really think that. They also beat the Chiefs in their opener last year and then got one win the rest of the season. Today I think just showed that they chose the better QB and he basically carried them in beating a bad team. The defense was ok...but had some tackling issues that better teams will make them pay for. But man, what a difference an accurate QB makes. 3rd and 10 isn't 3rd and forever like it has been the past few years.

I will log in, create a coach, and cut losers when I get home from work. Nothing like waiting until the last minute.

Cowboys are ready, I have been finishing up my skills training, have 29 gold medals, going to try and finish the rest today if kids let me.

I need to eventually try an online match. Maybe I'll do a Draft of it instead of the 3 match with computers.

You mean they didn't have one on the roster but the game requires one? Umm...I guess sign the lowest FB? And then when we do the draft style free agency, I guess you can swap him out if you think you need to. Obviously, if you want to start one of your other HB at FB instead of the shitty FA pickup, that's fine. Weird situation.

No worries. I thought it might be a mobile thing. It's tough with so many devices and formats these days, website never look the same for everyone. And the thread title is pretty lengthy right now.

Well, Fuck...

 

In my excitement and haste to get the league advanced, I forgot to turn injuries off before simming the preseason. God fucking dammit, man...

 

Apologies to the Eagles and Packers who got hit with the worst injuries. Both Mark Sanchez and Randall Cobb are basically dead...

 

Oh, what I wouldn't give for an "undo" button. I seriously didn't even think about it since we didn't touch preseason (I couldn't even figure out how to practice or anything).

 

Sooo...yeah. Sucks, but it is what it is.

 

We're in Week 1. The deadline will be 9/18 at 11:59PM ET.

Just to make everybody feel better, I lost Kyle Rudolph (starting TE) for 4 weeks. Then in my game against San Francisco, Jerick McKinnon got a "bruised sternum" injury on a TD run where he was never touched (he has an injury rating of 85). Fortunately, he only missed the rest of the game, but it still seemed really odd.

 

Also, watch out playing against the CPU. They can be huge benefactors of that stupid neutral zone infraction glitch since they do so many fake snaps. I had one play where I moved my DT backward and still got called for it (and yes, it was on him). They got it at least 3-4 times. It's really dumb and I hope they fix it for the ones where you don't actually step forward into the neutral zone.

 

I also saw quite a few holding and blocking in the back penalties. Thanfully, those were a little more equally distributed, but it still felt a bit Mario Party-ish.

Ah, just finished an online ranked game and beat a guy who used the Seahawks and basically only threw to Jimmy Graham all game. Wilson had 12 completions, 10 of them to Graham. I am so totally shocked that my LOLB Anthony Barr (who actually is an 85 OVR) couldn't keep up with Graham with his 55 MCV and 68 ZCV. I wonder if this is why I've wanted defensive assignments back in the game for the past 4 years, lol. So stupid.
