All Pro Football 2k8 - Season 3 - Week 6

Great game, Elliot! We started off slow, as neither team could get their offense running. But as the game wore on, the points really started to pile up. After the first quarter I was up 7-0. At the half I was down 14-13 (as I continue to dominate the league in FG's). Heading into the fourth quarter Elliot still held on to his slight lead, 21-20. That's really when the flood gate broke.

Elliot finally broke through after forcing me to punt, and took a 35-27 lead on one of Staubach's SIX TD's on the day. But I came back and scored at the two minute mark, but failed to convert on the 2 point conversion. Now I'm down 35-33 with just under two minutes left. I picked up the onside kick, and started moving the ball. I finally broke Novacek open down the middle, and hit him for a 42 yard score with 1:18 left. I think we all know that is too much time! Yes, Staubach through another TD to Berry, for his fourth of the day with just 33 seconds left.

Now I am down 41-40, but I get lucky as the kickoff went out of bounds. Starting at the 40, I hit Novacek and Carter on long plays to move down to the five. After using Means to center the ball, I kicked my third FG of the game, and squeak by 43-41. It was too bad either one of us had to lose.

It was a lot of fun. There were some crazy plays, lots of deflected passes. Just abut everything we love about 2K football.

I so wish there were a way to upload video highlights from these games!

No kidding. What is odd is that you can save highlights from offline games, and use the 2k's ReelMaker to create highighlights you can upload (not as easily as Bungie made it in Halo3 though). But you cannot save highlights while in an online game! And those are the ones that would be the most interesting to other people.

Just one more thing I would have liked to see improved in 2K9.

ertic and prederick i'm online at a friends house now if you want to play our games tonight just let me know. if not my xbox will be back to me thursday next week.

DS, Can you reset the game between Frankie and me? Stupid connection went out on us last night (grr).

Done.

Sorry, my ISP was dead on the proposed night and I've been out of town since. I'm back now. Thank goodness for flex schedules.

Hey Muffin, i'm sorry, this weekend was a trip out of town. Next best for me would be Wednesday, Thursday or Friday night. Name your time.

I am sorry Firesloth - My downstairs is back in order and I am ready to go - Are you good for Thursday? I will be available any time

I'll look for you if I'm able to get on...depends on the boy and wife sometimes. Glad to hear you're back in action.

Can I cut all my players.

Hey guys, this is getting a bit too slow. I know Ruthless is still without a box, but there is one whole game played for week 6 right now. And I felt like I took too long getting that one in. In fact, it was a week ago, and it is the only game played in the last two weeks.

We've been really good about getting games in, and not resorting to simming games. All I'd like to ask is for everyone to be a little more proactive in getting your games in. It's an hour of out your week, and it is not asking too much to be spend some of the time we already spend on the site setting up games.

I feel like this is really just a summer lull, and we will get through it just fine. From talking to several of you personally, I feel like there is still a lot of interest in another season, so lets finish this one out strong!

Soon, Frankie, soon.

Are you implying that you played your game for week six and lost? Because I do not see it on the site.

i got the xbox back today and i'm ready to knock the rust off so whos up ertic or pederick

Ready to rock man. I'll be on for a while tonight and tomorrow night, so let me know.

Good game Pederick

Now that the rust is gone. Ertic when do you want to play our week 5 game so Ds can roll it foward. I can be on any night so just let me know.

That. Was a whooping. Watch out Ertic.

I would gladly play my game. But I have to send Grumpicus smoke signals to coordinate with him and I'm not good at making smoke signals.

Jayhawker, I did play my 6th game and lost. I found out yesterday, it didn't post. I really don't wan't to replay the game, it could be bad for my health. But I will replay if I need to.

I'm not sure what you guys want out of me as a commish at this point. I've tried to facilitate a fun, thriving league. I know summer is on and we're all busy and that it's hard to co-ordinate, but at this point I'm not sure what else you want me to do to help keep this thing going? Should I be tougher on the whole "get your game done in a reasonable time" thing? Should I start doing coin flips and declaring winners? I fear that if we don't do something week 6 could still be going sometime in August.

I think we're all just busy...and late sunsets are keeping our kids up past their normal bed times!!

ertic -- Messaged you last night, but you had evidently shoved off by that point. Let's see if we can get ours in this weekend. Late evenings are infinitely better for me.

Too true! Plus, my daughter has reached that point where she is staying up later anyway, since there is no school.

I thought you PNW types were all about the smoke signals.

This is a big part of my problem as well. My usual 9:30c, after-the-kids-go-to-sleep, availability has been more like 10 or 10:30 and by that time, I'm just too wiped. It's compounded by the fact that work is so busy as to be non-conducive to visiting GWJ. But in the interest of not being "that guy"...

DS, I know it's Saturday night and all but can you play tomorrow? Or how about Sunday night? I should be able to work it out to get online about 8 or 8:30 your time, either night. Let me know.

Tomorrow will be weird. I have my personal trainer at 8:30am PST and then after that going to the Farmers' Market and then driving out to Hood River to pick up a wetsuit. And then I want to swim in said wetsuit (training for a triathlon myself now, God help me).

I will *probably* be home around 8pm PST. Sunday I will be out at a movie with my wife, but I will otherwise be around the house a decent chunk of the day. Bottom line is, ping me on XBox Live (via the website, whatever). Ping me here. I should be home tomorrow after 5pm PST.

I'll try to look for you on XBL later.

Ertic -- Any chance of getting this game in tonight or maybe tomorrow night (post 10 pm)? After that I'm off the Xbox for about 10 days...

Folks can move on without us, given the flex scheduling, but it'd be nice to get this done.

Alright i'm now all caught up with my games and DS you are next for me in week 7. So when it rolls forwards just let me know when and i'll be there

Week 6 is now 3 weeks old. Where do we stand at this point?

Im sorry - ive been hammered at work - hammered at school - and getting ready to go on vacation.

Firesloth any chance we can get our game in Wednesday - Name the time and I will be there
