dont you have enough good players on your team? Look at your roster, you have like ten players over a 90 rating. You are a powerhouse.You have the top two int specialists in the league, as well, lol. Anyway, yeah, those pick ups are fine since you have injuries. Just cant believe you have such a beastly roster.

Yeah but I have lost both my SS to long term injury. It isn't as if it is unrealistic to cover injuries, don't worry I will give them back when I don't need them any more. It isn't as if I can play Harrison at SS or CB now is it?

no, thats not what I was saying...You have every right to use FA to cover injuries...I was just shocked when I looked at your roster and saw a ton of talent. I didnt realize they all grew that well over the off season.

Well I wasn't just putting 50+ points a game on the A.I by playing a load of average players. Told you Mendenhall is a beast, he is easy clear at the top of the rushing yards table. Also Big Ben is top of the passing table. And the only 2 games I have lost were both in overtime, to two human oppenents. Man I remember when I used to get panned by 50+ points by humans, now you have to fluke your way to victory against me

fluke, you call a 2nd and 13, 83yrd TD pass on the second play of OT a fluke? maybe Ihaida and I were just creating tension before playing with some of our backup talent ;-). No seriously though...you have come a long way from the first time we played two years ago. I commend you...Still...no quarter will be given if we play in the playoffs.

What's wrong with putting up 50+ points a game with average players...

Bills win no real injuries just a whole lot if movement on the team to get things set up for the playoffs. On an off note I might clinch the division in a couple weeks so that's kinda cool. I have never seen the east be beaten up like they are.

My bro might play

Oops...forgot to roll on Friday...my apologies. That said

Welcome to Week 9
Bills(Ihaida)@Dolphins:
[email protected](Onewild):
Broncos(Zell)@Chargers(ALC):

Eagles (Starkmeat) have a bye week
Lions (Leroy) have a bye week

There is a HvH game this week. Hope it goes better than the last time we tried to play. Play off race is looking interesting. Only two teams remain undefeated and both of them are in the AFC. I seriously doubt either team will reach the playoffs without at least one loss. We'll see. I will be posting the playoff race picture starting next week. I would like to ask a favor though...I noticed that when we rolled this week, it added 3 players to my team without my knowledge. the CPU added them...two QB and a RE. I dont need any of the three so I will drop them before I play this week, but...look at my 4th QB...its a chick...her name is Hope Bromley...I have no idea how this came to pass. HOW IN THE HELL DO WE HAVE A PLAYER LIKE THAT?

Part of me wants to play with her as my starter, lol. Just to see what would happen. Also...ALC...I am free just about any night after 8 eastern. So pick an evening and we will go with it.

Also...just a heads up. I applied for a new position at work to do an overnight position. It pays about 100 more a paycheck and is weird. I would work 6pm-6am M-F and 8pm-6am on weekends. The job has you work 7days on, 7 days off...so you basically cram all 80 hours into one week...I hope I get it...but I dont know what that would do for me playing in the leagues. I could still play the CPU opposition but human games would have to wait til the weekends. Anyway...I think that with the pay increase and the allure of 7days off in a row makes the crappy work week worth it. When it boils down, instead of working 10 day pay periods, I would only work 7 days a pay period. Plus I still get the Holidays off (I think). Either way, wish me luck. I am one of 3 that applied for it.

Zell let try for thursday to get our game in say around 9pm. On another note i hope you do get the postion that you applied for man. Im sure the guys in the league would be willing to work around your schedule. I do hope they choose you and best of luck in this. Peace ALC

That works...see you on Thursday. Thanks for the wishes. It would alleviate a fair amount of my stress if I got it.

Steelers 38 - 10 Ravens

Ravens come out and take a 10 point lead, as the Steelers offensive faulters. However the defence takes the slack and beats the Ravens to a pulp.
7 Sacks, 3 ints (two by the rookie Ambles, which brings his total to 9 for the season) and a safety. Then the offensive starts to click and the points are put on. Hard game, but not good enough Ravens. Also Mendenhall only gets 140 Yards, tut tut, but he was injuried for a whole half before coming back in the second.

Yeah good luck for the job Zell. I just had an inteview for a job but failed to get it unfortually. Hope you are more successful. Also playing nights will almost put you on my time

Bills win even with the wrong defense...oh sometimes it makes me so happy I know how to run the 3-4

Welcome to week ten! Playoffs are in 7 weeks. Start protecting your starters and get prepared.

Ok...so...we had to sim again. When ALC and I try to connect to each other, he sends an invite and nothing happens on his end. I get invited, try to connect and it tells me "failed to retrieve data from other player, connection failed". Then it boots me from online...not xbox live...just the madden live. Alc and I attempted to reset consoles and routers and tried two different nights...a total of about 14 invites. It never worked. Game is now simmed (Broncos win but lose MLB mays with a broken jaw) but we need to figure this out because I am fairly certain both he and I will make it to the Playoffs. Any ideas anyone?

I wouldn't worry too much about it because I'm going to knock you both out of the playoffs anyway
But seriously, seems very strange so to go to the default xbox live solution, are you sure both your NAT settings are open?

Whoa...whats going on here? 3 of 5 games played and the winners all racked up 42 points?

Broncos win 42-3
Bills win 42-14
Lions win 42-13

freaky

Game play chargers vs packers very tight contest going into halftime 7 to 3. Both defense rose up to play very well. But in the second half the rust wore off and the chargers was able to make a good run to finish off the game. Final score 35 to 3 Peace ALC
On another note i like to take this time and give props to Zell the commish of the league. Reason being when we had the problem of not being able to hook up not once did he point the blame in my direction. He constantly try to make the sito right and i like to say THANK YOU for that. Look i do hope that my next opponet which is india we can hook up and play. I have call my cable company and have describe the problem but getting them to come out to the house isnt cheap. Them saying you on a differnt router there shouldnt be no problem. But if i am unable to play my human games and the sim goes against my team then my team would be out of the playoffs. I will have to accept that and i would i just hope i would get an invite back for the next madden season. Anyways not to go on a long rant Thanks ALC
