2015 Season - Week 6

We heard absolutely nothing from ArguelloWins and his Giants this week, forcing a sim against beachlife. Mr. Arguello, hope you show up soon. I understand life gets in the way. Any words would be helpful.

Thusk, I saw you were busy with school. The website has a mobile browser version for ease of use, and less data, from cell phones.

Demon! You were back! And then you weren't. Guessing you and the roommate are probably going at it like rabbits now tha tyou have your own place. Come up for air young one. ;-)


Penalty Sliders
I'm not touching the sliders anymore. I've seen a few games near the limit of what's acceptable, and some games with no penalties. We'll see how it goes.

VS

One of the longer AALoA rivalries is restored once again this week. It's an understatement to say [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] when these two meet on the gridiron. It's been that way ever since their first matchup...
Madden 11: Week 1 Recap: Bears vs Lions:
the_EDJ wrote:
Week 1 
Are you ready for some football football football?! Well Chicago wasn't. To open the season, the Bears hosted Division rival Detroit on the lake front. What began as a massacre turned into a miracle, as an overtime finish would leave Detroit shell shocked wondering what could have been.
First Half
The Superfans were at a fever pitch, and the Windy City Flyer was lined up ready to cut and juke his way all around the Detroit Lions. Jason Hanson would boot it deep, and at the 18 yard line, Hester would inexplicably fumble the ball right into the hands of Detroit. Three plays later, Calvin Johnson would be dancing in the end zone. But it's football season, and nothing could break the spirit of Chicago fans. Hester would hold on to the ball this time, and Jay Cutler was set to prove his critics right as on his first offensive series, Cutler would lay a beautiful pass right into the hands of a Detroit corner. No less than 3 plays later, Bryant Johnson would fly above three Chicago Bear defenders to pull down a TD pass. Can deja vu happen in a short period of time? Offensive series number two for the Bears would mirror their first as DeAndre Levy would do his best young Urlacher as Superman impersonation picking off Cutler early. No less than 3 plays later, Calvin Johnson would once again walk into the end zone after slamming Bear defender after Bear defender to the ground. Less than 3 minutes into the game, and the Detroit Lions were up 21-0 on the Chicago Bears and there wasn't a single fan making a peep inside the stadium. Outside the stadium, reports swirled of fans burning Jay Cutler jerseys and Superfans ripping off their Ditka mustaches.
 
Jay Cutler either has balls of steel, or is as dumb as a box of rocks as nothing was going to keep him from slinging the ball down the field. And really, Chicago had no choice but to put the ball in the hands of their most physically gifted player to get them back in the game. From there, it became a career day for Johnny Knox as late in the first quarter, Knox would snare a Cutler pass, shimmy away from a defender and race into the end zone putting Chicago on the board. Detroit would answer with a drive of their own, and who else but Calvin Johnson would be there to muscle his way to the 1 yard line. Jahvid Best would go in from there putting Detroit back on top by 21 points. Facing a 21 point deficit at halftime would be detrimental to the Bears if they had any hopes at a comeback, and in pure dramatic fashion, Jay Cutler would actually deliver again marching Chicago down the field in a hurry thanks to a major gain by new receiver Terrell Owens. Taking their last time out in the red zone with 9 seconds left, Chicago opted to go for the TD rather than settle for the field goal. Wide open to Cutler's right, Johnny Knox would cut Detroit's lead in half heading into the locker room.
Second Half
Chicago would have to kickoff to Detroit to start the half, and without Peanut Tillman, who sustained a broken collarbone, the Bears would have to pit 5'8" Tim Jennings against 6'5" Calvin Johnson in the second half. And it worked. For the entire 3rd quarter, Detroit and Chicago would trade punts as nobody could break free on a drive. At the end of the 3rd Quarter however, Devin Hester would field a punt, fake left, and loop back right streaking down the sideline for a TD. Soldier Field was rocking again. And just as quickly, Soldier Field was quieted again as rookie Running Back Jahvid Best would take the ensuing kickoff to start the 4th quarter all the way to the house without making a single juke or breaking a single tackle. And only in a game like this would Johnny Knox make it back-to-back-to-back return touchdowns as Chicago drew within 7 yet again continuing the roller coaster in the stands.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
A 14 yard run by Cutler for a 1st down would set up an 86 yard TD for Johnny Knox
Matthew Stafford would again take the field with dreams of putting away the Bears, and from inside the Bears' 20 yard line, he would do just that, almost. At the 1 inch line, a Detroit receiver would dive into the end zone, but a Bears defender would punch the ball loose and Chicago would recover the ball at the 1 yard line. A 14 yard rush by Cutler would get Chicago out of their own end zone, and Johnny Knox would once again rise to the occassion catching a Jay Cutler pass, weaving in and out of 5 Detroit defenders and scoring on an 86 yard gain tieing the game! 
Chicago's defense would follow up their heroic effort with another stop and give the ball back to the Jay Cutler and Johnny Knox show. Yet again, Knox would be open walking the tightrope down the sideline giving Chicago the lead late. Detroit, facing their first deficit of the game would be stuck in a scary situation. Chicago had Calvin Johnson triple covered, so instead, Matthew Stafford repeatedly audible for his inside slot guy from their Trips formation streak down the seam for 12 yard gain after 12 yard gain, resulting in a TD within the final minute. And we're going to OVERTIME.
Overtime
Detroit would win the toss and smartly decide to receive the ball. A drive that started out with promise stalled around midfield, and the Lions would have to punt. One stop would be all that Chicago needed as the previously absent run game would take over, and Matt Forte would power his way down the field. After a facemask penalty put Chicago inside the red zone, Chicago would run the ball into the end zone capping one of the craziest games in NFL history.
Final Score (OT)
Detroit Lions 42
Chicago Bears 48
Player of the Game
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]WR Johnny Knox
Can you really argue for anyone else? 4 catches, 190 yards receiving, 4 TD's, 1 KR for a TD. The stats speak for themselves.
Heroes and Zeroes

  • Hero -- Jay Cutler -- For a man with a lot critics to silence, you have to hand it to Cutler for persevering through the pressure and throwing 4 TD passes in leading the Bears into overtime where Matt Forte could take over and give Chicago the win.
  • Hero -- Calvin Johnson -- Johnson beasted Chicago's secondary facing everything from single to triple coverage, and he still pulled in 2 TD passes. With CJ on the field drawing coverage, the running game should be open for the Lions all season. Their receivers should benefit as well. Bryant Johnson also had 2 TD catches of his own because of this.
  • Heroes -- Special Teams -- Back-to-back-to-back return TD's will be run on highlight reels all season long.
  • Zeroes -- Special Teams -- Are you kidding me?! Back-to-back-to-back return TD's likely gave Special Teams coverage genius Dave Toub a heart attack. Practice is going to be a nightmare this week.


Looking Forward
Peanut Tillman is out for 12 weeks with a Broken Collarbone, a major blow to the Bears defense. Major Wright is out for 11 weeks with a Broken Collarbone, a hit on Chicago's depth in the secondary and special teams. Chicago heads to Dallas in week 2 to face a Cowboys team still getting accustomed to that new stadium smell in the house the Jerry Jones built because damn that man is rich. Look for a defensive showcase as DeMarcus Ware and Julius Peppers try to show each other up as who is the better player coming off the edge. Offensively, both teams are very similar as they have mobile QB's, a strong backfield, and equal size and speed at the receiver position, along with adept pass catching Tight Ends to help spread the field. Hopefully the Bears can keep their eyes off the big screen and actually be ready for this game to start, if not, Chicago will be looking at a 1-1 record heading into their faceoff with the Green Bay Packers who are looking to avenge their last second loss to the Eagles.
Until next time, Bear down Chicago Bears...


Week 7 opens Sunday night.

A REMINDER
Players are starting to ask for contract extensions.  There will be no abusing the system this year and offering max deals in hopes of buiding up a 60 overall player to 99 overall for cheap.

For example, Alshon Jeffery demanded a 6 year deal. I ponied up to keep his services. I pm'ed proof to Commando, Pitt, and Demon that he asked for a long deal.  The Rules are copied below:

Rules on contract offers:
7 year contracts are banned.
6 year contracts are only allowed when the free agent is demanding it. You must provide screenshot proof before offering a 6 year deal.
1 year contracts are banned during the off-season. Only Franchise Tags are allowed.  You must provide screenshot proof if player is asking for a 1 year deal. 
Pre-Season and Regular Season deals are what EA allows. Likely still 1 year offers.
All contract bids follow a +/- 1 year offer to their request.
> Player wants a 2 year deal, users can offer 2 or 3 year deals.
> Player wants a 3 year deal, users can offer 2, 3, or 4 year deals.
> Player wants a 4 year deal, users can offer 3, 4, or 5 year deals.
> Player wants a 5 year deal, users can offer 4, or 5 year deals.

Chargers drop 3rd straight to Packers 28-14

The night before the game versus the Green Bay Packers, San Diego Chargers FS Eric Weddle signed a 4 year extension with the team. He wanted a 6 year deal, but settled for less. Despite losing the game, the Chargers may want to sign him to a 10 year deal. Down 21-14 with about 2 minutes left, Weddle forced a crucial fumble on a jarring hit on Eddie Lacy. It's those type of plays that make him the best safety in the league. The Chargers had a chance to tie, but Rivers quickly threw another INT - his 5th of the day - to seal the loss. To make matters worse, Weddle dislocated his shoulder on the ensuing drive and left the game. 

The Chargers once again prove the type of team they are - tons of talent, but wildly inconsistent. They have to get it together against the Oakland Raiders or things will get worse. Now that Ryan Leaf owns the team, everybody is on a short leash.

Texans lose to Jaguars 10-16 on Hail Mary in overtime. They continue their trend of horrible offense against computer controlled teams with 3 fumbles, 8 sacks, only 58 yards on the ground for Arian Foster. David Fales had his first subpar game as a Texan facing instant pressure all day and lockdown coverage by the Jaguars. They hope to get back on track next week but will have to face the tough Miami Dolphins.

Player of the Game: Sergio Brown, FS
Dominated all day for the Jaguars. One of the reasons the Texans offense couldn't get going. He totaled 11 tackles, 1 for loss, 1 sack, and 2 interceptions.

Big 3 Carry Steelers To Victory

The Steelers welcomed the Arizona Cardinals to Heinz Field in HC Bruce Arians return to Pittsburgh.  Despite being 1-4 coming into the game, the Cardinals came out of the gate strong converting third down after third down en route to an opening drive TD.  The Carson Palmer led Cardinals had a 14-10 lead at the 2 min warning but that would be the last time they would be smiling on this day.  The Steelers proceeded to rip off the next 24 points on their way to 41-21 win.  The offense was led by the Steelers Big 3 as each had a more than solid outing.

QB Ben Roethlisberger - 13/15 for 232 yards 1TD 0INT
RB Le'Veon Bell - 21 rushes for 105 yards 2TD
WR Antonio Brown - 6 receptions for 154 yards 1TD

Browns defeat the Broncos 35-17 to advance to 6-0!
After a shaky first Quarter by QB Johnny Manziel throwing 3ints, he settles down and throws 2TDs the rest of the game. The Browns defense shaped back into form as they picked off Manning 4 times and held C.J. Anderson to 43 yards rushing. Dwayne Bowe had another strong game as he had 3 receptions 94 yards and 2TDs lol.
GG Apoc, hope you're feeling better man.

Players of the game:
WR Dwayne Bowe 3rec 94yards 2TDs
RB Isaiah Crowell 17att 69yards 3TDs
MLB Karlos Dansby 12Tackles 5TFL 1Sack and countless bat downs

Despite not playing defense at all the 49ers put in a respectable showing on offense as they were finally able to put together drives and put points on the board. Hyde had 101 yards rushing and 3 TDs while Kaepernick went 16-27 for 228 yards and most surprising and encouraging no INTs.
