  • I think I'll just play my game tomorrow- I got all the way to within like 2 min of the 4th quarter, and I got the connection error again. The thing is, it's happening on my computer as well- I've already reset the modem a couple times... I'll try again tomorrow I guess.

    What I would do....if you are ahead by a good margin is supersim the rest of the game, and I bet it will not mess up again.

  • I am not sure if I read correctly but can you only play your games once a week?, because if that is the case I think we should wait for everyone to finish their week 1 games then we can start week 2 and when everyone finishes week 3 games we can play week 4 games and so on. So what is our schedule for playing games exactly?

  • Alright, I was FINALLY able to finish a game- the funny thing is, someone joined the league since the time my last game against the CPU got disconnected from the server. So the game I was able to finish was against a human being, woooo! So either my connection problem was just temporary, or else I just have the problem against the CPU for some reason. Nonetheless, I am officially 1-0 baby.

  • I currently hate everything.

    Despite almost 300 passing yards, I got utterly smoked at home by the Lions.

    I need to go vomit for a little bit, having said that...

    *wipe* Okay. This is what happens when you have a weenie defense and a wussy O-Line. I could move the ball brilliantly... when I had time to throw. This rarely happened. Before I could even see what the safeties were doing, BLAMMO! Down goes Brees!!

    I haven't verbally assaulted my own TV like this in years.

    (To give myself Kudos and to call anyone out who's tempted: You have to be a major weiner to quit and restart the game when you're getting your ass handed to you.)

  • Hey Blitzer, if you still want Ellis Hobbs, I offered you a counter offer... but I want Carlson. So I offered Hobbs (83 CB) and Schobel (72 TE).

    lol i know what you mean. i had to overhaul my entire D. My O is savage but my D barely gets by, my deep secondary is still a mess lol. I was really pissed when I played my game, my very first play, Turner breaks one into the secondary then fumbles it for a TD. He went on to run for 167 yds on 15 carries and a TD but nevertheless, I was pissed. I ended up making a FG in OT FTW lol...But yeah I notice you could use some help on your O-line, I'll send you a trade request here in a minute.

    Yeah if you look at the box score for my game with the Rams one can tell that my D needs some work or the Rams have a very good offense, I just couldn't stop them to save my life. Thank god they couldn't stop me. Devin Moore-~200 uyards rushing, Deion Butler-~330 yards receiving.

  • Yeah I looked at it at first and thought, wow this is a great deal for me.....however then I saw the differences between Burlesons and Jenkins speed, which is a big need for me and the Hawks in general so I decided against it, however if you want to deal Roddy White then I could do that lol.

    And man why did you have to sign JJ Arrington....I wanted to sign him.

    What? No PS3 love? We could use a few more players, so a little more exposure might be nice. ;)


    If 2 or 3 of you guys PM me (like the 360 guys did), I'll move your PS3 thread into the main forum for a couple of days - but only after the 360 thread is moved back on Friday though. One thread at a time in the main forum for games/fantasy (i.e. from the Fantasy Island forum)! And by popular request only as well! When the season starts however, this number goes back to zero.

  • Hey Hombre, I thought about the deal you offered and I was just think if you could replace Arrington with a CB and then we may have a deal, if it seems right. Jason Campbell is a hard player to look away from...lol.

    Wow thats a hard deal to pass up, just wish Griese was a little younger...lol. I think I may have to do it unless Hamlinator makes a better deal, which I don't think he will.

    Might not be doable. I'll be around uber-late today, probably in and out until mid-AM locally, but that'd probably be too early on your end. Then I'm going to shoot 18 and afterward hang with Stacey 'til semi-late. So maybe Sunday night would be best?

    I'll probably be home and available by midnight to 2 am, which is only 10-midnight on your end. My hours are weird, and I go back to work for a few days after that. What're your usual times?

  • Let's try for 10:00 my time then tonight, if that works.

    EDIT: Actually, we'll have to figure out a better time later in the week- I'm good anytime past 7:30 PM, and possibly anytime Thursday.

    correction: It looks like the CPU Steelers beat him 51/0 and he quit. lol

  • I think that's my friend, he's been getting pretty frustrated with the game as a whole, I'll admit, I have been too, that just means I have to get better, hehe. He probably broke the disc(or his tv). He told me that NCAA is more fun. Oh well.

    Sounds like someone who isn't able to adjust to the speed of the game...

    NCAA is sooo fast and smooth that its hard to play madden directly after, since it is like a slug compared to NCAA...


    I like Madden better though.

    Yeah I feel the same way, it takes some time adjusting to Madden, but I think I have adjusted fairly well. Can't wait for week 3 to start!
