2017 Season: Week 1 Open

2017 Season: Week 1


Welcome to a new year of Madden! Make sure you're familiar with the rules.  I'd love to hear a short synopsis on how your games are going each week.  It adds a ton to the league.

Streaming of games is mandatory. Make sure your twitch account is set up. Make sure that auto-archive is turned on. Make sure you've set "americanarmchairleague" as your Community under your twitch Dashboard.  You have to turn that on via the twitch website. It can't be done from the console. User games only need one person streaming.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] are a HUGE help. There’s a dedicated sub-forum for that.  Each user will have a Scouting Reports thread where you can post what you've seen, or how you've stopped a key look/play.  I've included a video player to each user's twitch feed so you can watch their game live while reading their scouting report and chat on the forum simultaneously. It's not pretty, but it's functional.  

Make sure you're in the AALoA Community page on the PS4. You can find it under my PS4 profile page. Regular updates will get posted there as reminders. And that's where I'll send event invites for the draft and major games like the Super Bowl.

Weekly Matchups

Falcons vs Bears
Steelers vs Browns
Seahawks vs Packers
Saints vs Vikings

CPU vs Patriots, Lions, Jaguars, Buccaneers, Titans, Eagles, Rams, Panthers, Cowboys

If your opponent has responded to you within 24 hours of advance, there is a #scheduling section on discord.  Tag your opponent and @Commissioner to bring up the lack of communication.  This is the only way sim games will be awarded.

Game of the Week

Falcons vs Bears (Usually there's more imaging and links involved)
I'll be streaming.

Week advances no later than Thursday night.

What was supposed to be a statement game for the Chicago Bears turned into [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] starring Neil Patrick Harris.  The Falcons instead executed a flawless gameplan and showed why their 28-3 collapse in the Super Bowl was more of a fluke than NFL conspiracy to protect the Patri-cheats legacy.  Skill players would force at least one missed tackle, and the Matt Ryan just didn't make a bad read.

There might've been something in the water, or it was the fact that a lot of Bears veterans scoffed at the idea of doing yoga in the pre-game stretching routine.  But no less than 6 players left the game with injuries.  Jordan Howard took a big hit at the goalline, and laid on the field clutching his back.  So of course it was a broken collarbone and he'll be out at least 7 weeks.  Pernell McPhee will be gone 4 weeks.

The lone positive in the game was Mitch Trubisky taking care of the ball.  The young signal caller didn't turn it over once.  He couldn't throw an accurate pass of any sort on the 3rd down.  But that's more Madden Gods than QB issues.  Speaking of Madden Gods...we should've done Competitive style. Wink

The Bears will hope to rebound next week versus the Buccaneers.  But they'll have to do it without two of their best players.

Rams 38 - Colts 24

Eric Dickerson's dream of restoring the honor of the Rams and bringing respectable football back to LA got off to a good start with the Rams' 38-24 win over the Rams.  The Rams got the fireworks started early by intercepting Andrew Luck on the first play of the game, however it looked like it would be the same old story as the Colts would force a fumble and return it for a TD two plays later.  The theme of the day for Rams, at least on this day, was big plays as that was evident on the ensuing kickoff as Tavon Austin returned it for a TD.  The Rams took a 28-10 lead into halftime thanks to two 50+ yard TD receptions by Sammy Watkins and a 60+ yard TD run by Todd Gurley.  With the game in the balance (Rams 31-17 but Colts with the ball and driving) it was Lamarcus Joyner's second INT and subsequent 100+ yard return for a TD that sealed the deal.
