Anyone else notice a high number of wide open deep receivers?

I thought it might have been my sliders offline, but I had one online last night. They are almost the only scoring I've given up. I can count on having a receiver streaking down the sideline with out anyone with in 20 yards. Not sure if it's my defensive calls (I tend to switch back and forth between cover 2 and cover 3) or a bug.

Against Cover 2 - a streaking sideline receiver will almost always be open as will a deep Post (gets in behind the flat route coverage). You need to either manually cover that streak with the safety or shade the safeties towards the sidelines. Shading towards the sidelines will leave the seams open against Cover 2.

Will we use private messaging for scheduling or email?

post on here for scheduling...its the easiest

My question is do we have to do all of our team preseason games before we are able to play the regular season. I have play 1 game and im ready to move on and it was still stuck on the game i had just play. Also i pick up thourgh free agency Husain Abdullah and Brodney Pool so when does it let us advance to the next game or can we sim to the regular season?

I guess we could skip the preseason. Zell can force advance the weeks but the game will probably cut for you

I don't mind skipping the preseason but I think we should at least do the cuts before advancing the week.

everyone, go ahead and pick up your FA if you want them...no one posted any duplicates.

get your games in, league rolls tomorrow night

Everyone, don't forget to hit ready/advance when you are done. That way, the last person to ready up will advance the league automatically.

yea can we please cut our own players...with the way its set up I don't want to get fired because the cpu decided to use a rookie instead of a vet.

Thanks!

So what are we waiting on?

League advanced. I thought I did it from the website today...guess it didnt take. Week two. Since its preseason, I am going to force it forward on Thursday morning. So get your stuff done beforehand if you care.

After watching the games this weekend and no one picking them originally - I have to put on my hog nose and switch to the Redskins for some RG3. Also, should we restart the league with the new patch and roster updates?

Roster updates may be good to grab. And it is only preseason

I would like to know before we go any farther.

We aren't to far into the year if you guys want to restart I'm fine with it. If we do I would like to switch to the Colts if possible to set up a Denver vs. Indianapolis playoff game.

Just make it quick turnaround for preseason. Say 2 days for cuts

sounds good

Oh hey, I'm getting married Saturday, so I'll be gone all of next week.

Feel free to sim my stuff. If anyone awesome gets cut I'll just try to sign 'em again. I'm not worried.

I'm okay with starting over as long as I still get my Saints.

new league is up...rosters didnt change much. password is stan

Oh yeah, week one matchup

My question is what is the league name? Shouldnt you have gotten either a pm or a messages on XBL telling you the information that you need to make the change over? Rather than saying the league is change over and the password and nothing else.
