  • Ended up moving the Raiders to become the Sacramento Miners -- Kinda like the uniforms. Very... Cal Golden Bears-esque. 5-11 first season, fired my entire staff.

    Haven't been able to get a QB. The draft was all full of suck. Burned one of my extra first rounders to move up and grab a DE who immediately sacked Ben Roethlisbergererer three times in a preseason quarter of football. We still have Matt Flynn starting, and... well, suck is a strong word. He's the Trent Dilfer to my Super Bowl Ravens... only our defense isn't that good. And our offense isn't that good. And we're not that good. Kendall Hunter was the best available fit for RB, though we did snag a late-round rookie with some potential.

    Meanwhile -- at the beginning of the second season, Tampa Bay announced a move to become the Portland River Hogs. Har. Also, more oddly, a team too irrelevant to remember decided to move to become the Dublin Celtic Tigers. Take that, Londo-- er, wait. No London team, yet. NFL is starting out in Dublin, snork.

  • So in owner mode the CPU regularly moves teams all around the US/world?

    Is there a way to turn it off? It's a bit unrealistic.

    You can set it so you're the only one allowed. The other teams are pretty irresponsible about it.

  • Damned if Kendall Hunter didn't go off in the first regular season Sacramento Miners game. Dude busted out for a 54 yard TD on a midfield draw play, then followed up with an 86 yard scamper out of the wildcat.

    Denver got owned at home, 41-24.

    Peyton still got like 400 yards and two TDs, somehow.

  • second season in offline career mode, the rams moved to LA, and became the LA All-Stars (HIDEOUS yellow and pale blue unis), and had a blip on the twitter feed about the "Oilers" breaking ground on a new stadium in Houston. wtf?

  • Finally got a decent statistical game last night after some pretty drastic slider modifications -- I was hanging out at #1 offense and #32 defense no matter the roster. QBs are WAY too accurate. Seems near impossible to throw an incomplete pass on default settings (Unless it's an interception... point being not many footballs bounce off the turf.)

  • Thinking about getting this game. Getting bored of Madden 13. Is it worth the 60 bucks? Owner mode looks pretty intriguing, but would like to hear some opinions about M25.

    -They fixed most of the annoying limbs that bend crazily when falling or tackling.
    -When you run behind a lineman, you dont just fall down now, you actually push off of them like a non retard
    -Animations as a whole are cleaner with an occasional hiccup (running looks way better)
    -Running mechanics along with blocking (sometimes) is overall better then 13
    -Seahawks online roster is stacked.

    Overall, a better then most yearly releases. A noticeable upgrade over the last.

  • Yeah, I do like the running updates. Run into the back of a lineman and things progress a little more naturally.

    In a related funny, on a kickoff return I actually weaved into one of my own blockers while trying to cut back. Nary a defender lay a finger on me, went into the stumbling animation and went down. That'll be on sportscenter.
