    First of all, let me be clear: I won this week.

    I won on a last second field goal (ironically, the Phins lost to the Jets by virtue of missing one), but it should have been a blowout. Why? Well, the jets scored 29 points on under 150 yards of total offense. How? THREE fumbles. BY THREE DIFFERENT PLAYERS! Two of which, I might add, occurred with the use of the right bumper (doesn't) protect ball button.

    What else? You'll notice that Shonn Green leads the league in broken tackles.

    A win's a win, but christ.



    Holy beejesus batman. lol. That is why I don't run much at all in this game. Too many issues with the run game; The RB will run into their own lineman and fall down, RB fumbles too much, juke/truck seems to not work when you want it to or need it to the most.

  • PATRIOTS PRESS RELEASE:

    Due to the rise of Mallett and Ramses Barden... Tom Brady and Wes Welker will be on the trade block. We are looking for various personnel/picks to fill their roster spots. Our top priority is finding a good young man to man CB. Second, we would like to find possibly another young QB with good deep ball accuracy. Third, we will entertain the notion of a WR with a good release rating (due to the rise of man coverage). As an organization we must also acknowledge how badly the Hawks defense destroyed us this past Sunday in real life. We suck as an organization and will only ever beat Pete Carrol and the hawks in a video game. That is all. Time to go cut some more sweatshirts at the sleeves.

  • I've won my last couple of games, but I'm having trouble getting my offense going. The AI seems better on this setting than in previous years. At least it makes it more challenging.

    BTW, I'm the Bears and offered a new contract to Urhlacher, but I'm thinking of trading him while his value is high. Not sure if I'll pull the trigger and may keep him if he accepts the contract, but if the right offer comes along and someone needs a mlb, hit me up.

  • Real DTM, I was wondering after the season if it's still possible on the game to upload the ncaa 13 draft class into the game? I know you used to be able to and don't have the game myself, but was wondering if it is still possible? If so, maybe one of us can rent it on Gamefly or something and transfer it since I don't usually buy the NCAA game. I bought it a couple of years ago, but I played Madden so much more.

    dude I was throwing 10-15 yard fades (hardly considered deep) because you were stacking the box defending the run. So, why on earth would I run the ball... to go three and out and give the ball back to you. Makes sense :sarcasm_on: . Also, 10-15 yard fades turned into more because of yac and because you failed to play defense or have any sort of defensive scheme/adjustment. Again... you got beat up through the air by RYAN MALLET. Come On Man. If I had Brady in I would have put up a hundred on you. Just learn to play better and PLEASE stop whining I don't want to hear anymore of it :177692:

    They took the import draft class feature out of this Madden but it will be back for next years edition.

    mmhmm, we'll see about that.. and for what its worth... after 21 up, i walked away.. problem with madden is, either everything goes your way, or nothing does. there is hardly ever a middle ground. after pick 3, I stopped caring enough.

  • And I could definitely tell you stopped caring by your play calling. I get pissed off at times as well and most of the time it is at Madden and the computer than it is the other player. Hell I tried to add you as a friend and I gave you positive rep on Live. I understand your frusterated but why insult the way I play Madden? I didn't showboat or anything; there was no onside kicks; I only went for it on 4th down in the your redzone (and failed). I thought we played a relatively clean game and that is an accomplishment in itself. Play some of these random douches online and you will see all sorts of cheats and trickery with a mix of taking advantage of the a.i. faults.

    Well, that's the thing. The one fumble where I didn't use the right bumper was a run with Reggie Bush, but the other two were by Fasano and Ochocinco on passes, where they had run >5 yards after the catch...

  • I never use the right bumper. Instead I just flick the right stick up to hopefully truck for a few yards. I figure that I will eventually cough it up so why not try for a few more yards. The 49ers however are my kryptonite. It seems that whenever I play them, human or ai, my guys catch fumbleitis. just happens I guess.

  • Yeah as someone else said there's no import draft features this year. :(. Planning on advancing Saturday, figure nothing will be done today with the hawks game and all and I know a few people have games to play. If there's issues getting a match scheduled (ViKings v 49ers) let me know and I'll see if I can contact the other person.

  • Looks like the Bears and Seahawks still have games to play against the CPU. The Vikings and 49ers (both offsities) have a game against eachother. As neither of these people are on the forums, or atleast I don't know their forum names I will be advancing saturday afternoon as planned whether they play or not. I will of course allow extra time when it's 2 .net members playing.

    Ya I for one do not mind the advance at all. I would like to catch up to the regular season schedule and besides, these guys should be members of this site at the very least. It makes it easier to communicate with one another.

  • Could u advance on Sunday? I've been working a lot with two jobs and won't get a chance to play until probably Saturday night. I'm on eastern time so I should have it played by 10 eastern at the latest. Let me know if this is ok.

  • That's fine, i'm totally ok with doing that sort of thing for members.


    edit: advance date changed to sunday am.



    Just a note to anyone interested in joining. We are still in week 3, there are no player teams in the NFC or AFC South, nor the AFC West. Some good teams with 2-0 records still available.

  • I'll be advancing after the first set of games this morning, possibly at half time.



    Seahawks, 49ers and Vikings did not get their games done! I'll send them all messages on xbox live and hopefully we can avoid that in the future.


    EDIT: Advanced.


    The three teams that autoplayed had some serious injuries :X, and the Seahawks can't catch a break... other than limbs

  • Surprisingly, it won't happen to me until week 12 (vs SEA), but what are we to do if one of us is to go against an inactive member?

    Also, the Saints wouldn't take a Ricky Williamsian haul for Jimmy Graham. Frustrating.

    Killed the Cards, though! Didn't give up a single offensive point. If not for an Air Jordan move by William Gay, I would've shut them out.

  • haha that's awesome, and yeah sometimes the picks are just ridick. I would hope we could get Traumahawk to play these games, just need to pester him on here and on XBOX Live. The two off-sities are another story, if we can't get into contact with them I'll just remove them. I don't want an active person to lose/get injuries from a sim game, just wouldn't be fair to those active.

  • I advanced to the next week!

    Some how Terrence McGee (my 3rd string cb) won DPOW over Jason Babin and his record setting 9 sacks... smh


    I haven't really checked the matchups but i'm guessing we'll have a player vs. player or 2 this week. Let me know if you have scheduling conflicts etc so I can adjust the next advance time!

    Thanks all, Good Luck

  • No, and the PM's I sent him are sitting in my outbox (meaning he hasn't logged in afaik). Don't worry If it comes to that I'll just boot him so you can play the game, I'd almost rather the Seahawks be CPU controlled (I think most of us wanted to be the seahawks, that's why I didn't pick it)

  • ^^^ agreed. If it was my choice I would be the hawks. With the hawks I like to put Golden in as my second tight end. He easily beats out linebackers running routes and isnt the worst blocker.

  • Well, when Anthony Fasano tore his labrum, and I was in search of tight end help, I came to the conclusion that trading was not as easy and cut and dry as in years past; New Orleans rejected My 2012 1st and 2nd, plus my 2013 1st for Jimmy Graham.

    I began to look closer at what other teams needed, and spent some time searching for matches.... it takes creativity and patience.

    That sucks. I stopped playing black ops a few years ago. They started coming out with so many different maps that it got hard to play. People online knew the maps religiously and would just kill me way too easy.
