I'll be keeping track of the rookies as the season goes on and giving my take on where I believe they stand in the chase for their respected award. Here are my preseason candidates:
AFC Offensive ROY Candidates
DeShaun Watson – QB – Houston Texans
The Texans got the right man for the job in this draft and he’s in the perfect situation. I’d expect the Texans to start Watson off slow and as he gains confidence, open the playbook more and more each week. He has the ability to pull the ball down and go make plays on his own but he has enough talent around him that he doesn’t have to do that.
Deshone Kizer – QB – Cleveland Browns
The Notre Dame product who claims he’s Tom Brady in Cam Newton’s body will get his chance to prove it. If Cleveland can get the backfield duo of Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson Jr. moving the ball on the ground it will give Kizer many opportunities to show off that big time arm. The question is who will be there to catch it.
Patrick Mahomes II –...
With all the Madden news dropping last week (and still a few more items to come), it's time that we officially start filling out rosters for the Madden 18 cycle. I'm excited to get things (officially) going as I think we have some really good leagues that are going to provide a great experience for TSOers. I have updated the league directory for the active leagues we have. If you are interested in joining the action, you should start there. If you are new to TSO, head on over to the New Member Lounge and be sure to fill out your application.
In addition to all of our leagues being integrated into discord (you should totally join now!) we are looking to maintain a heavy schedule for streaming and casting league games...
I've mentioned it before in the podcast and talked to several of you individually about it, but I've been working pretty hard in the shadows on refocusing a new strategy for TSO moving forward. I'm excited to start finally releasing some of what I've been working on and everything below is sort of phase 1 (really phase 2, but whatever).
TSO is now fully integrated with Discord. This is the chat program we will be moving forward with and will be the center of how we integrate TSO with outside platforms. It also in itself provides a lot of functionality that we haven't had before in 3rd party "chat" programs. I'm excited about what this will mean for the community:
1) Discord gives us a truly integrated community chat platform
What does this mean?
- Our streams, podcasts and live casts will have integration between twitch and discord
- People can now register on TSO via discord
- Our usergroups on the site now...
Hello old friends,
Last evening, Drifterbub , BobJr and myself got together to discuss our plan for TSO going forward. I thought that I would start a thread to let everyone know that we are going to move forward reinvesting our time and resources into this site and other endeavors.
To that end, we have a couple of announcements.
- We have created a Slack group to host community discussion. We hope that everyone remembers the fun of discussing games, sports, and life with the people in this community. The chat is invitation based, so if you would like to join, please post below. Note, we can create specific channels for interests, like for a league, or to organize FIFA events, etc.
- We intend to start producing a podcast focused on content generated by TSO members, as well discuss the overall community, gaming, etc. If you've ever played in a group chat with any of us, think that, but more topical.
