And here we go again. Looking to get people together to do an online franchise. I know of several people and what teams they want to use, but I'm getting our page started.

I will be the Chargers again.

Played the new Bucs guy last night. Looks like we have another solid league member. Good player, game was back and forth the whole way. Really enjoyed it. Took a game winning td pass with like 15 seconds left for me to get the W

played my game so Alex I think we are up with the next advance. Looking over the Franchise it looks like we are starting to take our normal number of drop outs already. Its amazing how many people cant handle this schedule of just two games a week or get mad at other owners for play style its just a game that is played sim style with no trash talking its not like your dealing with the dredge you find on the online ranked games or on MUT.

I'll hate this league if i lose to you this year.

btw, does that count as trash talk?

Stupid headset questions

I notice some of you guys have the headset icon when we play. Does this mean you talk to your opponent during the game? What sort of head are you using?

Do you find playing a franchise as the Giants in Madden more fun when the real-life team is good, or bad?

I actually kind of prefer the latter -- it gives me some odd sense of control and retribution. For example, after week 2 I fired up a new franchise, created a custom coach to replace McAdoo, cut Ereck Flowers and John Jerry, promoted both Webb and Gallman to starters to develop them (they seem to develop really well), and featured the shit out of Engram in my offense. I then had my first draft and took a plethora of OL and LB'ers, something the real life Giants would never, ever do (though I didn't get the last laugh -- none of the rookies were really all that good). I then traded Eli to get the Jets' 2019 2nd and 5th round picks.

BTW, Gallman really does seem to be good in the game. His truck move is very effective, almost glitchingly so in some of my runs.

COLTS and BOLTS : 10/6/2017 3:49 pm : link
My headset is usually on because I'm in a party talking to other friends while I play my game. Can't speak for others, but that's almost always the case with mine.

That is the one nice thing about madden is doing things with the Giants that you know the organization will never do. However I am usually frustrated with the Giants in Madden in that the players seem to be under rated every year especially Manning even after wining super bowls he was never rated higher then 85.

Manning was rated a 93ovr in Madden 09

A 97ovr in Madden 13

A 91ovr in Madden 25

I initially thought that this year as well, prior to the season starting: "What?? Why are the Giants as a team only rated at 83? Why are their best players outside of Beckham and Collins so poorly-rated?"

Turns out they were generous.

I hear ya on the schedule thing. A good thing about this league is what you're able to learn from other players in h2h. If you ever get some free time, we do around 2 games a week.
My main problem  
santacruzom : 10/6/2017 8:18 pm : link
Is simply that I'm still getting used to the PS4 controller. I can't control my player (especially my running back or defenders) with the precision that would be useful in so many situations.

I've got an XBox controller for my PC and I feel that its stick is much more precise. The PS4 stick seems to be longer, making short and precise movement a bit trickier.
I see  
crick n NC : 10/6/2017 8:22 pm : link
Well since you're on ps4, and we're and xbox league.

hit the practice up if you aren't doing that. When i just use games as my way of getting reps i struggle, if i use the practice i'm more precise on my timing.

Sucking has never stopped Crick from playing lol. but its a fun league if you do find the time especially the offseason when the bidding wars start for FA and people stealing your picks in the draft.

Wow they had him once as a 97 I don't remember that year and to be honest I didn't really start playing madden again until the online franchise came out not sure what year that was maybe 2012?
