      We’re still doing this?  Absolutely!  Despite all the compelling reasons to just let everyone go home and enjoy and extended offseason, this is not an option.  The games must be played, and therefore we the long-suffering fans will feel compelled to watch.  Even games no reasonable football fan would choose to watch like, for example, today’s Redskins Jets game.   

      Today’s convergence of sadness features the 30th ranked scoring offense (Jets 14.4 ppg) versus the 32nd (Redskins 12.0 ppg).  The first team to 15 wins!  With no playoff aspirations the compelling story lines for this game are largely limited to watching young players (hopefully) develop.  Dwayne Haskins gets his first home start and Derrius Guice is back from injury.   
       
      My, reasonable, goals for today’s game:  
      1- Score a touchdown 
      2- Score more than 17 points.   
      3- Haskins throws for 200 yards or more with no interceptions  
      4- Guice runs the ball at least 10 times and finishes at 3.5 yards per carry and healthy.  
       
      Hoping for a win at this point feels like setting myself up for disappointment, so I’m happy to settle for an entertaining loss.  
       
      Special thanks to @pez for some excellent Guinness beef stew.  If you absolutely have to stand in a frozen parking lot at 9am, the best place to do it is at the Extremeskins Tailgate with Pez and @Huly.  Great fans, great people. 
       
      The Redskins have declared for the following players as inactive: 
      Paul Richardson  
      Colt McCoy 
      Deshazor Everett 
      Chris Thompson  
      Ross Pierschbacher 
      Vernon Davis  
      Tim Settle  
       
      The Jets declared the following players as inactive  
      Nate Hairston  
      Darryl Roberts  
      Paul Worrilow 
      Matthias Farley  
      CJ Mosley  
      Jordan Willis  
      Leo Koloamatangi 
       
      1st Quarter - Redskins 0 - 6 Jets
      If you wanted to sit in the cold and watch a football game with some Jets fans at FedEx, but were worried that there were not enough seats available, I have good news.  There’s plenty of space available, so come on down and prove you’re a real fan by sitting though this in person.
       
      Jets dominated the 1st quarter even though they only scored 6 points.  The reason being that Washington managed only 13 yards of offense and a single first down.  
       
      Question: Is it still a check down pass if the QB never looks at anyone else?
       
      2nd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      The Jets have achieved an insurmountable 13 point lead early in the 2nd quarter.  All hope is lost.

      Is there a more perfect example of the Redskins offense than their first scoring drive in the 2nd quarter?  Interception gives the Redskins the ball on the Jets 16 yard line.  They proceed to march 10 yards backwards before kicking a field goal from the Jets 26.  It's perfect.  Two or three more field goals we can call it a day. 

      The Jets score again and if feels like they are are just piling on at this point.  Three touchdowns in the first half for them, just three points for the redskins.  Our streak of no touchdowns has now extended to 15 quarters. 
       
      3rd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      There is a spider slowly descending from the ceiling in the press box and it's the most interesting thing that's happened during the third quarter of this game. 
       
      I have decided to allow the spider to live, provided it does not touch me.  I'm off to get some more caffeine. 

      4th Quarter - Redskins 17 - 34 Jets
      The first wave of Redskins fans, the few that are here, started streaming towards the exits after that 4th Jets touchdown.  As if the Jets didn't have this game wrapped up in the 2nd quarter. 
       
      Jet have now more than doubled their average points per game and have matched their season high of 34 points (and they missed two field goals in this game). 
       
      TOUCHDOWN REDSKINS!  THE DROUGHT IT OVER!  Guice took a short pass from Haskins  all the way to the house.  2 point conversion is successful on a pass from Haskins to Quinn. 
       
      The Redskins score another touchdown!  This feels like an embarrassment of riches, even if we are still certain to lose this game. 
       
      End of Game.
       
      Let's review those reasonable goals I mentioned earlier:
       
      1- Success.
      2- Close enough, I'm counting it
      3- Haskins did throw for over 200, but unfortunately did have an interception. 
      4- Guice was not given the opportunity to run the ball ten times today.  He did however score on a 45 yard TD pass and finish the game healthy.  I'll take it.
       
      Even though the Redskins lost, it was good to see the offense show some faint signs of life and end the streak of games without a TD.  The team looked competitive for much of the second half, and perhaps they could have made this a fun game if they carried that same energy throughout.  It was good to see Guice and Mclaurin show out today.  I think both of them have a future with this team that I look forward to seeing.

THUNDERDOME

1st place in AFC West on the line (KC 5-0 vs OAK 5-1)

Hey freestylin/HTTR when can you play......

and i hope this isnt an issue....

Hitman36ST: I would like to protest my game (Browns at Raiders, I was the Browns) due to HTTR consistently stacking the box (about 80-90% of the game up until about 4 minutes to go with him up 13) and using a glitch at the beginning to get his sacks. I couldnt take a three step drop the entire first half.

Hey Hit man, grow some ****ing balls and man up, you lost. I NEVER glitched. I told you exactly what defensive scheme I ran and how it was a stack mike blitz, forcing your Line to downblock the a gap and guess what, someones gonna going to get through on a 6 man front, especially if you leave 5 to block..........let's do the math.... 6 vs 5 = 1 man is going to get through.

Now, if you want to go over rules, cool, lets review your game play...

OFFENSIVE RULES:

- Use the whole playbook, not just MONEY plays (means plays that always are clutch and will work every time)

COMPLETE FAILURE TO COMPLY. You ran the same 4 plays, I came at you with multiple formations and plays

You cannot run a play more than TWO times in a row. Therefore, that means if you QB sneak twice and do not make it, you cannot do it a third, time

Let's talk about your multiple series running a NO HUDDLE with the SAME FORMATION ...SAME PLAY...passes either to the TE on a post route or a FB running a wheel route = FAIL

-Mix up play calling on offense and defense (do not continue to audible to the same plays)

ANOTHER FAIL

DEFENSIVE RULES:

- Please mix up your defensive play calling

This dude runs a 3-4 all out LB blitz EVERY PLAY, ILBs line up on the LOS........FAIL

Do not consistently stack the box (meaning 9 at the LOS)

I still have the PM in Xbox that said I had 8 in the box, rules say 9 here. Funny thing is I had a 6 man front, 2 out of my 4 CBs man'd up your RB & FB, not blitz. FAIL!

MISCELLANEOUS:

- DO NOT COUNTER A CHEATER WITH CHEATING

I NEVER cheated, you couldn't handle the defense PERIOD! but when you SO-CALL CALLED ME OUT, you countered with nano blitzs through the A gap, and you STILL LOST..... funny guy........FAIL!

So ye PLAYEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRR man up and learn to play madden and sorry, 4 honey plays on offense and 1 defense move on madden doesn't work around here......

No problem Commish, just a sore loser that wants to claim I gliched when in fact, I didn't. He wants to ***** that I glitched on LM, giving others the impression that I cheat, when in fact, he's the one breaking the rules. I was hoping he would respond to what I posted, but decided to go back on LM and post this crap...

Pretty much just playing that 1-5-5 Nickle, and stacking the box with 2 or 3 extra players, and bringing the entire Right (offensive left) side. Did that practically the entire first half so I couldnt get off a 1 step drop without being hit. Aside from one big run I broke, I didnt get anything from the run game because of it. He did that until he was up comfortably late in the game.

Not necessarily a glitch per se, but cheesing the system to get easy sacks. I was getting hit literally less than half a second after snapping the ball, on a consistent basis.

1. Read my post here, then changed his story on LM

2. Calls me out on Cheesy play? Here's another cheese play he does untill you stop him.......HB toss on a 3 TE formation......nice subsitution there buddy, just like all the lame cheesers online. He does this till you can stop it. I was able to and that's why he went all passing from there..... and I didn't use the Nickel 1-5 against it......

3. Now claims that I sack him on a split second? Now I nano? Seriously? I NEVER nano, I ran a stack Mike blitz from time to time, not all the time.

4. I ran a Nickel 1-5, 46, and quarters. He just ran a 3-4 the whole time, 85%-90% of time it was an all out blitz where the ILB presnap creep up to the LOS and line up at 2i's, which sets up the nano if you take over the player. OLBS on the LOS at 6 or 9 tech.

I countered his blitzs by sending my TE's out for a pass, check the box score, you'll see my TE's lead in reception.

While you're at it, check out his history on offense, he likes to pass alot, so of course I would switch up with man, zone, zone blitz, etc etc....mixing it up as you requested.

Should I have reported it? Yes. Did I? No. Shame on me.....

Ok first things first lets chill on the name calling stuff and remember we are all doing this for fun. Im going to have to get both sides of the story but i suggest everyone read and refresh on the rules because if i get multiple consistant complaints on the same owner i will boot them. I need you guys to remember this league is for fun and to try and balance out different skill levels and avoid the nonsense some of us deal with online in ranked games all the time.

Free are you staying in your 1-5-5 the whole game regardless of what formation the offense comes out in or are you useing that as a pass defense? If your coming out in it every play regardless you should switch it up a bit. Hitman i suggest you do the same if your coming out in the 3-4 all game regardless of offensive formation. i dont have any doubt that the players in the league that i see online playing ranked games know a few tricks of the trade but they have no business here and look no further then heidenreichs comments above for the reason why. i have recieved complaints and questions about gameplay over the past few weeks but owners didnt want to snitch on the opponent at the time so consider this a notice that im aware and while i dont want to remove people i will if it makes it better for everyone else. Owneres if your play is questionable tighten it up so you cant stay around, If your play is in need of some help lab it up with some people in the communiy or while in your league games and loosing big seek help and im sure some wont mind helping you out because it makes all the games better in the long run. Owners from here on out if your going to message me about someones play i need a name even if you dont want to because it creates alot more work for me to have to hunt rather than just try to clean it up.

PS.. Rvens need to check the power rankings....

You're right.

I don't always go with a Nickel 1-5-5, it all depends on the team I'm playing, the situation (3rd & 8, 2nd & 13, etc. etc.), and what formation is coming out. Is it my primary defense? Again, depends on who I'm playing against, situation, formation called. I do mix it up throughout the game with 46, 3-4, 3-3-5, dime, quarters, dollar. As Moore pointed out, my LBs are fast, so is the rest of my players. Al Davis loves speed.

Hitman,

My bad, I'm sorry. Listen, I HATE when someone loses a match, then claims I glitched, cheated, or cheesed to take advantage of the game. I HATE when that happens to me, so I don't do it to others. Yes I run an aggressive defense, not a fan of the bend but don't break scheme.

Don't be like the lamers online that only run honey plays then complain when someone like me knows how to stop them. If you want, let's play a few unranked games and go over some new plays to run, I'm on a bye week so I'm open.

sarcasm is hard to catch on the net.. yea you played a str8 up game as well.. ive heard people complain about my out route but i use it at max twice on a drive but usually more than 3 to 4 plays away from each other.. you and the jets were probably the hardest 2 guys ive played..

Yea I used the out route quite a bit in our game. I think you picked it twice. Most people don't use it. Everyone loves the patterns going over the middle of the field.

Ran the motion for run block a few times, not all the time.

Jason Campbell = 2 TDs

Run DMC = 2 TDs

2 3-Point Kickers

Score could have been more right before the half, forced a fumbled, scooped and got stopped around the 10 yard line? Had time for 1 more play with 5-7 seconds on the clock, called a play in, Thunder hit time out, decided to kick for 3.

Thunder played good zone, picked me 3 times; 2 of them were bs imo, but good Defensive. Decided to pound the rock afterwards.

Dro,

...........scared?
