    We play week 16. I'm super excited. A playoff spot could be on the line for me and I know you're even to me in terms of playing. Since we split our two games 1-1.

    Well, I won my game against the Bills, but it was ugly. 19-16.

    Ugh.

    Lee.

    lol. Man, not sure why my offense is struggling. Maybe Favre related.

    BPK, you're not the only one. My passing offense has been terrible this season, so far. I'm sure we can pick it up, though.

    In two games I cannot run screens. My quarterback is sacked really fast after the play starts. Even against the computer they do not work.

    BPK and I just played a really interesting game :lol: Interesting because we both seemed a bit afraid to show too much before our important week 3 matchup.

    I didnt blitz a single down until the very end of the game. And just experimented with runs on offense. Harvin got a TD called back, then got caught by the last man, and after that I just started onside kicking :lol:

    You almost let the Bills beat you? :pity:

    I see Groves got a sack! How did Craft play? I have Mercedes Lewis as my #1 so Shiancoe didn't see the field a ton, but hope to work him in as the weeks go by.

    Im not sure if its the controls but Madden on the PS3 is not very good imo.

    I played it on the 2 and the 3...and really no comparison? Odd.

    Stand in the pocket. In the old Maddens, running back wards was the way to avoid a sack. Standing in the pocket now is important for accuracy

    I think the left joystick is touchier for passing now too. If you are touching it when you throw it really really affects where the ball goes, IMO.

    Also try getting your shoulders square in the pocket. It helps your accuracy.

    we've all been there bro. i thought it was a waste of 60 bucks when i first bought it when it came out......its way more realistic than ps2 versions.

    you could basically scroll and throw on the run accuratly with all qbs in the ps2 version. not so in this one. i know its hard to imagine.....but trust your oline. take a legit 3-5 step drop back in the pocket, and hit slants, out routes, posts etc.....easy routes. lean on your running back in the flat and tight end crossing routes to get comfortable....then go for the deeper stuff.

    and check the qbs individual ratings.....they may have short/medium accuracy.....but they could be very low rated when it comes to deep passes. this all comes into play. just practice, you'll get better man! :up:

    I know but really I stay in the pocket alot even with the old maddens...I think Im just frusterated that i dont have the "stick skills" to click on the WR and go get it like I used to do so well....same with defense.

    I dont think the game is too bad I guess but maybe Im just not in sync with it yet.

    I used to be very very good at Madden so this is a huge shot to my ego. But im gonna keep practicing so I dont get blown out.

    Too late to join? I suck at the game, but wouldn't mind attempting to have a little fun with it, since I've played like 3 times since I bought it.

    I know how you feel, I have been playing Madden since probably 95' and did really well on the playstation one and two games. I started off on PS3 and didn't do so hot, which is tough because I'm very competitive, but I got better as I played more. Just don't get too good until after week 13. :lol:

    ChrisKo, as Mor said it's open to all of us, just pick someone other than the Dolphins. We're currently in week two so no matter what team you pick, you'd have a fair shot at making the playoffs or at least have some fun. The more the merrier. :up:

    ASUFinFan, I know Soldier tried catching ya last night, can't help if work runs late though. Maybe you guys can set something up in next few days, his email is in the contact list. I know he tends to usually have more time later at night, just keep in mind he's eastern time zone.

    We only have one game to go. It is really cool how I can go to easports.com and check out how the week has gone.

    7 turnovers is hard to overcome Daphins. That sucks man.

    hardest thing about Madden 10, imo, is avoiding INTs on offense, and stopping the passing game on defense.

    Yea I do hate it when I see a guy being open and a linebacker jumps up and makes a once a season type interception.

    They need more deflections.

    I also hate the amount of one handed interceptions.

    Yeah... you know that INTs will destroy you, so you're reluctant to throw too much, but you also know you will get thrown on for a lot of yards so you HAVE to throw to keep up.

    I'm trying to really work on my pass defense this year.

    Interceptions are just part of the game. I probably should run more, especially against real life people.

    If you're NFC... lol.

    Six interceptions is rough, but he does have Jay Cutler so. And yeah, when the MLB leaps up and makes a one-handed interception it's kind of lame, could maybe understand a good FS or CB doing that. I'm also trying to work on reducing the INT and improving the defense, why did I trade Craft again? :lol: So far Garrad hasn't thrown any, but I haven't played against a human opponent yet.

    Far as trades go, I'd be willing to maybe move WR Jarett Dillard (Overall 75, my highest rated WR and young) and DE Derrick Harvey (Overall 75, young and has good acceleration). Would be looking for a 73ish or higher CB, a fast RB that could be second string to MJD, a heavy/strong DE, or some good and young offensive lineman. Can email (in contact list) offers if anyone is interested.

    yeah last night sucked. I kept him on a 3-out for his first possession but couldn't get the fair catch off in time to keep Hester from getting flattened on the 15 or so and fumbling.

    For all the picks the passing game wasn't all that bad IMO. Two interceptions were from high arcing passes because Cutler got hit as he threw, one was on a hail mary, one was an AWFUL read on my part, the others he made great plays on. Story of my life on the net gen madden though, his DB's had sticky fingers and I don't think they missed a single opportunity to pick me off :P

    Sucks, but there's always next week. Credit nappy as he made the plays (not the computer) to get the turnovers, he'd switch to the DB jump up and snatch 'em out of the air. A skill I have yet to develop.

    For me it's the opposite. The ball just bounces off my guys hands and it's so hard to get picks. d

    As for stopping the pass, definitely really hard. When I played the cardinals I put my best corner on Fitzgerald and held him to 2 catches one of them a late garbage td. (There was 5 seconds left.) But it was everyone else who killed me.
