2016 Season - Week 1 Open

2016 Season - Week 1

Welcome to Season 2 fellas. Thank you for your ability to adapt quickly with the off-season. It was an abrupt shift at the last second, but I wasn't going to extend the off-season for an entire week.

Congrats to Nike for making the Browns of all teams Super Bowl champions.

For Season 2, we are capped at signing a maximum of 2 players in free agency to let those unfortunate few that had life intervene with the offseason catch up their roster and have a chance at some players.

What an opening week! Chargers/Colts and Ravens vs Browns are my favorite matchups. For the first time in AALoA history, I get to face off with d-stylez260.

VS

A banner raising ceremony that pits division rivals against each other? Yes, please. The Ravens have to be motivated to play spoiler. Will Money Manziel be ready to take control of the offense again? The league's best offensive line will probably make sure he's comfortable.  What about Breshad Perriman? Is his follow-up up to last year's record setting output turning into a sophomore slump, or a continuation of a potential all-pro career?


Week 2 opens Tuesday night.

Raiders pull out a nail biter after being down 17 at one point the defence scored a touchdown on a kickoff following a score, next possession the Raiders rookie FS Woodson came up with an interception which lead to a 4 point lead the Raiders wouldn't relinquish. McKinnon shined in his first game with the Raiders after playing in Adrian Peterson shadow with 22 Carries for 160 yds and a touchdown. The rookie qb looked a little shaky with 3 turnovers but rookie wr Clarence Blake had 7 reception for 105 yds.

Dolphins open with a strong road win in Buffalo carried by Lamar Miller's 3 TDs & 130+ yards. The offseason's main goal of revamping the defense failed miserably as this defense will likely be a pushover in user games. The unexpected retirements of Cameron Wake & Brent Grimes and inability to replace them could prove costly. 


Also, does anyone know if there's any issues this year in CFM if you build a new stadium? I know there were some last year so I was hesitant but my current stadium is a POS.

The Steelers open the season 1-0 after a 38-14 victory over the Patriots.  The Steelers used a very balanced attack to move the ball, almost at will, versus the Patriots (only punting once).  Le'Veon Bell ran for 84 yards and a score, while Roethlisberger connected for at least 3 passes to Bell, Bryant, Brown and Fleener on his way to 280 yards passing and a TD.  The Patriots tied the score at 14 midway thru the second quarter but Dri Archer returned the ensuing kickoff 89 yards for a TD and the Steelers would rattle off 24 unanswered points to end the game.

New Slider Settings - After one game

A couple of things after only one game (vs the CPU) under the new slider settings.

1. There were a decent amount of penalties between the two teams (5 for the Patriots and 3 for the Steelers), however they were all False Start or Defensive Offsides.  I don't know if its the sliders of the fact that Brady is a veteran QB but he tried to draw me offsides at least once every four downs (or at least it felt that way). 

2. The pass rush seemed more ferocious (on the CPU's end anyway) in the first half.  I threw a little quicker in the second half and kept them off balance with the run but they were getting in fairly easy on blitzes in the first half for like a two drive stretch.


3. I also noticed that the kick arc was still on.  I know you mentioned you were going to remove it so just a heads up for Week 2.

Next week: Brings a rematch of last years AFC Championship game. Phins vs Browns.

Remaining Games:
Chargers vs Colts -- Scheduled for 11:30 pm EST
Jaguars vs Titans -- Some communication on hammering out availability. Both look to be victims of the Fallout 4 release. haha
Panthers vs Bears -- No word from d-stylez.

Late advance tonight as I'll give Chargers/Colts a chance to get played.

Chargers fall to Colts 38-24. Chargers actually led 10-0 at one point but then Ty Hilton blew the game wide open.
