  • Picked up Marcus Stroud. I have no idea who's turn it is but I figure this week has been active long enough that if you wanted him, you already had your chance.

  • Thanks for being so cool about it. Sno. Get your headset cued up next time so we can chit chat!

    I think the folks at EA need to realize that a big part of their target demo are Dads now and sometimes kids wake up screaming for no reason and Dad's need more than whatever piddly amount of time they allow for in a pause to take care of baby bidness.

    Maybe the years of having my ass beaten into the ground by my brother the video game tester and years of losing on-line games becasue I refuse to use any team other than the Seahawks (who have been abysmal in Madden) has caused me to have an inferiority complex of some sort. Thanks for the compliment on my game. You were much better than a shit player too. You made Gonzalles a bit of a non factor.

  • Dear God, I need to make some moves for my defense, but I have no idea how to get what I need without much in trade-able assets other than Stewart. Oh well.

    The Canadian Falcons (surprisingly fierce name for something that starts with Canadian) and the Snohomie Panthers faced off for the second time last night. The Falcons jumped to an early 21-7 lead, as Michael Turner ran roughshod over the B#(@& A$*F$@)s that make up the Panthers defense. Matt Ryan started hot and stayed hot, and even when I focused my defense on stopping Turner we... well, didn't. I know at one point he was averaging nearly 10 yards a carry, though I think that fell. By the 2nd quarter, I was looking for a "forfeit" button. "Jackass" was replaced by "Worthless (rooster) (slang for lollipop)" this game. I didn't force a punt until the 3rd quarter. The Falcons OL ate up a DL who's lightest player was 280lbs.

    Then, something weird happened. The Panthers offense, which had struggled in the previous matchup and was going pass heavy (latency issues really eff up my inside running game), started making big plays DeAngelo Williams streaked untouched for a TD. Steve Smith caught a curl, broke a tackle, and beat everyone to the endzone. DeAngelo Williams had another TD, going the opposite direction. Cam Newton, who has really lost his deep touch, started hitting key 3rd downs. Newton did run for several first downs as well, and his only pick was a late-in-the-game downfield gamble that was as good as a punt.

    As the fourth quarter started, the Panthers were down 31-21 (or maybe that was late third). I managed to bring us within 3, and then take a four point lead (34-30?) with 5 minutes remaining. Or just enough time for CAN to march down the field. Only something weird happened. My defense recognized that they could play better football if their heads were not firmly planted in their behinds. A key 3rd-and-short stop of Turner led to a crucial 4th down with about 2 minutes remaining. Turner was made for these moments. But, somehow, my little secondary gang-tackled Turner right at the first down line. Turner had made it, surely. But wait, the refs ruled that Turner was stopped what must've been a fraction of an inch from the line, it was Panther's ball! A few good runs and the game was over, the Panthers somehow remained undefeated... just barely.

    Great game CAN. It's a good thing I don't own headphones, I'm not sure that what I was saying (until the last 2 minutes or so) would've flown in the SHACK.

  • I'm still upset about that 4th and short. Looked to me like he made it. if it wasn't inside of 2:00 minutes I would have challenged that shit!

    And you forgot to mention Julio Jones and his 12 receptions for a gazillion yards. He was a beast! When next we meet I'll have Roddy white and John Abraham back. Then you shall experience the full power of the dark side! (hey, maybe I'll wear by black unis for the occasion!)

    Another great game. It was too tall an order to beat the Snohomie Panthers twice I reckon. Though I have to cop to being partially my own worst enemy. I'm not used to the 10 minute quarters; I got soft in the head after a while and thought I was playing tecmo bowl. 4 verts long bombs every down. WTF was I thinking.....? Gotsta learn to play with the lead and eat clock like skittles.

    Thanks again for the game.

    hey, did you notice my brain fart where I thought the end of the 1st quarter was the end of the first half? lol.

  • I have decided that my heartbreaking loss to the Snonthers can be attributed 100% to my lack of a starting quality RG. Just noticed my back up centre is my starting right guard (and it's not due to injury). As such, I have made my first free agent claim and grabbed Leonard Davis to be my road grading RG beside Tyson Clabo.

    Any objections?

    Got a game with the Titans coming up. I'm working tonight and tomorrow night, Thursday or Friday should be open late-ish. I'm usually getting to be available by nine or so, Seattle time.

  • Trav, sounds like a date. I'm free any time after 830 PST. Let me know which day works best for you.

    Prepare to be Locker'd! (by being Locker'd it means that you sucumb to his greatest even though he's very rough by will have captured the heart and souls of many followers.)

  • I'm thinking Thursday around 9 or 930 PST might work best. Locker could go either way against the Texans young defense. We've been pretty good at getting after the QB, but flushing out Locker is NOT going to help us all that much as there are definite problems in pursuit/tackling. Houston needs help at safety something desperate, so they have problems both in run support and the deep ball (Whenever a QB decides they feel like challenging JJ.

    The offense has been underperforming terribly, but there's been an annoying tendency for Andre Johnson to keel over for most of the game with injury, making us pretty one dimensional. Flaming thumbtacks are certainly the favorites in this one.

    Add: Hell, 'One Dimensional' is probably overstating the issue. With Foster out for at least a month, we're trending toward zero dimensional.

  • Well, I've been getting killed by long-bombs so there's always a chance.

    Depending on how the ThNF game goes, the start time might be pushed back, that okay?

  • I had something really weird happen to me like 2 or 3 times while I was trying to play my game against the Bears. I'd pause the game and get stuck. I could move around in the pause menu (look up the stats view the instant replay, or even exit the game), but when I hit 'Resume Game' the pause menu would disappear and pop right back up again. Like I said it happened to me like 2 or 3 times, and I had to restart the game each time. Has anyone ever had that happen to them?

    I did manage to complete the game though. Freeman had another bad performance (4 ints!), but Blount set a new NFL record with 308 rushing yards (including one that went for 90+ yards). The defense kept the Bears out of the end zone and the Bucs beat the Bears 24-6.

  • I struggle hardcore aiming them.

    I am pretty good at hitting 98-100% on my kicks, and I'm usually hitting the little accuracy thing... but I suck at aiming them before the kick (and I mean REAAAAAALLY suck), and even 100% sends the ball ~ 40 yards with our sliders. UGGGGH.

    BTW, fair warning to all - I'm grabbing a FA when I get home tomorrow. I don't know who, but I'm not going to wait. So make your moves now or hold your peace. Downside to the Panthers is that my team has more holes than a Krispy Kreme.

  • So after making Trav wait who knows how long... I finally get online and accept the Texans vs Titans matchup.

    I probably played the greatest first QTR i've every played at the expense of the Texans and Trav... CJ2K churning 1st down after 1st down and then I go up-top and hit Kenny Britt for the long TD. I force a 3-and-out and get the ball back and hit Britt on a go-route for a TD when Trav plays bump coverage. On Trav's next possession I get a pick-6.

    We then trade some punts back and forth and then Trav cuts me deep... he takes Locker's first INT for a pick-6 it's a game now at 21-7 Titans. Trav gets the ball again after my offense stalls on a 3rd and short. And the Texans start driving and picking me apart. I get a free blitzer and wallops Schaub and he throws up a duck in the redzone that I pick off. With time winding down I play conservative until I convert a 1st down with less than a minute left in the 1st half. After getting two long passes I sit on about the 30-yard line and call a hurry-up play and hit my streaking TE for a TD with 12 seconds in the half. Half-time comes with the score 28-7 Titans.

    On the opening drive in the 3rd, Trav's Texans churn yard after yard and march down the field. On 3rd and 10 on the 35, Trav hits Daniels for the 1st down and more, he waltz in for the TD. Trav eats up just under 4 minutes in the opening part of the 3rd QTR.

    I am hitting play after play and marching with CJ2K leading the way... until I hit my buttons too fast and give up an easy pick-6. 7-point game now... After I get a 1st down on a Roughing the Pass call (which I didn't even see), I give up a penalty myself on a holding call. 1st and 20 from my own 25 and I hit Washington on a out-route with nothing but grass in front of him. 35-21 Titans; Locker's 3rd TD of the night.

    So again... Trav marches all over me to the 5-yard line and his WR drops an easy TD on 1st down... who redeems himself by catching it on 2nd down. 7-point game again. I try to march but Trav stalls me again. Instead of going for the 56-yard FG I punt to the 7-yard line. Two big passing plays to Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels puts the Texans at the 50-yard line. On 3rd and 3... I get a sack on a free blitzing OLB. 2-minute warning goes off and Trav opts for going for it on 4th down and hits Owen Daniels for a clutch 1st down. Texans hit the redzone with 3 TOs and 1:15 on the clock. Texans on the 1-yard line with 2 TOs and over a minute left seeking the tie... Up the gut to Ward for the tie.

    1:04 on the clock and 2 TOs to the Titans name. And I give up a pick-6... 3rd one of the night on an out-route that does not go very out. On a streaking pass to CJ2k... it's intercepted and Locker has a Hasselbeck like game. Texans win 42-35.

    Trav you played an excellent game. Great comeback by your team. Can't wait for our rematch in Week 17.

    Stats:
    Locker 15/25 339 Yards 4 TDs 4 INTs 3 returned for TDs
    CJ2K 18 Att 122 Yards 0 TD
    Kenny Britt 4 Rec 117 Yards 2 TDs

    Schaub 24/36 302 Yards 2 TDs 2 INTs
    Ward 16 Att 48 Yards 1 TD
    A. Johnson 6 Rec 107 Yards 0 TD
    O. Daniels 5 Rec 74 Yards 1 TD
    J. Joseph and D. Manning with 2 INTs each

  • Awesome game, man. I spent the vast majority of that one thinking, 'Well, no way in hell I'm getting THIS one back', and kept doing... well, actually that's the only thing I CAN do. Chew up clock on offense and sniff out turnovers on defense. J.Joseph with two TDs. Ward didn't entirely embarrass himself, but the Texans' run game was never really a threat without AF.

    I was totally guilty of that roughing the passer, hah. Locker had 300 pounds of Keoeatmu or however the hell you spell it giving him a helmet-to-helmet hit well after the screen was away. He'll be getting a call from Mr. Commissioner.

    Daniels is my safety valve. Makes for bad habits, though, and things get predictable, but... If Johnson's covered, Daniels. If Jones is open, he'll drop the damn ball. Walter's too slow, he's probably covered. (I think he was like 2 for 17 or some such.)

    I thought that thing was going to OT.

  • I think my router sucks Sno. It's in another room hardwired to my dinosaur desktop computer so I'm using the wireless on the PS3 (which seems to be a little sketchy). Time for a reconfig I think. Don't use the desktop much and our laptops lug a little and it's probablly due to the router being off in the toolies. I'll hardwire the PS3 for optimal gaming performance and get a cheapie USB network adapter for the desktop POS.

  • Yep. Saints are available, but in the interest of balance I'd strongly encourage the Jags or the Colts. (All of the above are currently around 3-3, I think.) I'm getting ready to run off to work, can somebody direct Yak to the group/pword post? It's buried in the thread, and I won't be able to get online to do an invite 'til about Monday or Tuesday.

    That's got to be some sort of comeback record, right?

  • Finally managed to finish my game without my router shitting the bed. I really need to reconfigure my set up and hardwire my PS3.

    I was so freaked out about dropping the connection again that I 'super-simmed' my defense to move it along faster. Turns out my CPU defense sucks the big one as they gave up like 31 points. Had to win it in a shoot-out 38-31.

  • Encouraged by the 35-point second half comeback against the Sammitans, Houston came out and trampled all over the Jaguars. 38-23 Texans (5-3)

    Schaub had a ridiculous first half, going 12 for 13 for 140 yards and 3 TDs to go up 28-7 early. He reverted to throwing a couple pics in the second half, but still ended up with a respectable performance.

    The Jaguars run defense made Ward look like an All-Pro. 22 carries, 219 yards, 2 TDs. He and Owen Daniels carried the day, with Daniels picking up 7 catches for 83 yards and 2 TDs.

  • Eeked out a close win against the Vikings, 14-10. Cam Newton continued to show that he can't play worth crap in the rain, which seems to define my most recent games. Luckily. DeAngelo Williams had another huge game and ran for 160 yards on just 19 carries. However it was Jonathan Stewart who, by pure luck (*I* could've gotten 10 yards on the play, Stewart wasn't touched), managed to score a 40 yard touchdown in the 4th quarter. The defense played very well, little Bruce Johnson (5'11 185lbs or maybe 178) made several tackles of AP that were either for loss, no gain, or shy of the first down on 3rd/4th down. Stroud had a huge game, only one sack but he was the first guy to beat his man every time.

  • Halfway into the season, looking at the Travtexans...

    5-3, and with the Titans sitting on top of the division, going to be scraping for a Wildcard at best. Looks like that Week 17 rematch against Tenn is be a Game of Import.

    WTF Player of the Year So Far: Connor Barwin, giant monster OLB. Dude's a 72 or 73 overall, and has 6 sacks. 6'4"/260. Obliterating QBs.

    Disappointments: Schaub. Way too many picks. But, that's just the nature of the game. Noticing that with the league stats. The human players are leading the league in rushing yards and interceptions. Human players' defenders apparently suck at tackling, too.

    Also, Foster. Not really his fault, though. Injury.

    Best free agent pickups: Giant Tongan, Ma'ake Kemoeatu. Not great stats, but causes some disruption up the middle, enabling Houston's froth of pass rushers to get at the QB. Also, Matt Dodge has a beast leg.

  • Advanced.


    Travtexans win again, getting back into relevance with a win over the 5-2 Browns to go to 6-3 on the season. Talk about your ass-ugly games, though. Texans remained dominant throughout, but Schaub pulled another stupid and threw 3 interceptions. Schaub is leading the league in interceptions, as well as the ability to inspire linebackers to develop the powers of flight and teleportation. My problem feeds directly into Madden's problem. Madden has uber alert and athletic linebackers, and I LOVE to dump the ball over the middle to crossing routes. The result is inevitable.

    Anyway, Ward put up another 90-some yard day and the good guys win 10-3 at home against a wildly inefficient and amazingly ugly Madden McCoy.

  • Just played the ugliest game of Madden in the rain... I won but only because the Madden-gawds felt really bad for me. Witherspoon runs a Cedric Benson fumble 99 yards but there's a flag on the ground. I'm pretty sure it's a holding call against them but you never know... Game was played in the rain and I couldn't complete a pass to save my life except to the opposing defense. Locker is a rookie that can't play in rain and CJ2K is awesome.

    Half way through the season the the Titans sit at 7-1 with their one blemish against the mighty TravTexans.

    With less than half of Hass's snaps under center, Locker has almost as many yards, more TD and less INTs.

    On the year:
    Hass 849 Yards 7 TD 14 INTs
    Locker 794 yards 9 TD 9 INTs

    CJ2K 231 Att 1462 Yards 9 TDs 24 Rec 262 Yards 2 TD

    Kenny Britt 28 Rec 472 Yards 8 TD (1 Rushing TD)

    Dave Ball and Will Witherspoon with 7 Sacks each

  • Just won a thriller against the Saints. Freeman threw 2 ints just before the half giving the Saints a short field both times and allowing them to go up by 10. Tampa Bay was able to drive down the field just before the end of the half and get a FG to bring NO's lead down to 7. Neither team could do much of anything through much of the 3rd quarter, until the Bucs got the ball and rode the back of Legarrette Blount all the way to the endzone. From there New Orleans looked to be moving the ball well but the Bucs D stopped them on a critical 3rd down near midfield. A couple of plays and a huge pass from Freeman to Benn set the Bucs up in field goal range with less than a minute left and forced NO to use their first timeout. A few more run plays left the Saints without any timeouts and TB with a 23 yard FG opportunity. The Bucs call a timeout with 10 seconds left, and Connor Barth kicks in the game winning field goal!

    Huge win, as I have several human opponents over the next few games and these will be even more challenging.

  • Texans put up a solid performance and managed to hold on for the win despite the Football Gods repeatedly smiting them. Four injuries over the course of the game, at one point I was playing a 3rd string safety. Schaub continued his unerring ability to throw interceptions that don't seem to be entirely his fault (The best was targeting Johnson in the end zone almost perfectly on a curl. The defender was playing off him ever-so-slightly... Instead of just standing there and catching the pass for the TD, he immediately runs back OUT of the endzone away from the ball, allowing for a perfect spiral into the surprised defender's arms. Tard.)

    20-9 Texans in the rain IN Tampa.

    Foster's comeback resulted in a 100 yard game, and Andre Johnson snagged six passes for over 100 yards, including an absolutely gorgeous PA streak in which he utterly shredded the coverage.

    Things were just not going the Buccs way, At. All.

    Meanwhile: WTF is up in the AFC North? Damn near have an all-way tie going on, there.
