2018 Season: Week 1 Open

2018 Season: Week 1


We survived the offseason! And it took less than a week to get through. Thank you everyone for putting up with me. It's not easy trying to get several people organized from across the country.

Streaming of games is mandatory. Make sure your twitch (or youtube) 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.

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, and draft time party chat.

Weekly Matchups

Lions vs Bears
Falcons vs Eagles
Cowboys vs Seahawks

CPU vs Bengals, Browns, Titans, Steelers, Colts, Buccaneers, Chiefs, Packers, Vikings, Patriots

It is expected of you and your opponent to try and schedule the game privately. Whether that is via Discord, PSN Message, text messages, smoke signals, whatever.  If your opponent has not 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

The NFC's #1 and #2 seeds square off to open the year. They didn't get a chance to meet in the playoffs, but had a close game late in the regular season a year ago.  The best offensive line the league returns to open up lanes for the best RB in the league. But did the Cowboys do enough to address their passing game? That remains to be seen. The Seahawks did not settle for a poor offensive line, instead shipping off a couple of draft picks to obtain Josh Sitton at RG. Russell Wilson is a gamer though, so you have to like his chances of keeping the team in the game. Their cap space woes really limited their offseason moves though.

Week advances no later than Sunday night.

Lions shock the Bears. Up by 3 with 2 minutes left, the game disconnected with me in FG range.

We "spoof" the situation to settle the game and set a limited clock a la Madden Moments.
Only two timeouts for Lions. I face 4th down at the 23.

Bears go up 6 instead of 7 due to a lagged out missed XP earlier in the "real" game and I make the FG no problem.
With "less than two minutes left," (we're playing until 4:20 is left on the clock) the Lions throw a pick, seemingly sealing the game.

Lions use their last two timeouts, and a Bears injury gives him a 3rd. I attempt a FG to go up 9, and the game doesn't register my accuracy, whatsoever. It lags out again. Missed FG. Lions drive down the field unimpeded for a go ahead TD. With a few seconds left, the Bears' Hail Mary is a picked. (fuck lag) (fuck lag) (fuck lag)

Just look at how bad the game lagged out on this crucial FG. Plus the miss earlier.

GG Marv. You had a few surprises for me that I didn't expect. And you're the first person I've ever seen hit the wrong button to get a TD. haha. I will have my revenge later!

Packers get a win in San Francisco behind a few big plays from their special teams unit. Scoring opened with Trevor Davis returning a missed FG 105 yards for a score and the Packers blocked 1 extra point and 1 FG attempt. 

Ty Montgomery was injured on the very first play of the Packers season and will miss a month with the all too common shoulder tear. The Packers run game was absolutely miserable without Ty as Williams & Jones avareged about a yard per carry until Williams had a few strong runs to ice the game at the end of the 4th. Packers relied heavily upon Aaron Rodgers as he routinely got the offense out of bad spots and threw for 3 TDs in the 34-20 win.
