    Apparently, I was wrong. In my efforts to shove my foot as far into my mouth as possible, I asked Kapono to play a game with the same settings we use in AM. That is, All American difficulty, 7 minute quarters. I was Oklahoma State, against his West Virginia. The game took place in Stillwater

    17-35 (48.6%), 305 yards, 2 TD,

    QB Rating: 94.9

    .....

    Oh yeah.

    8 Interceptions :(

    Some were forced throws, some were great plays by Kapono . Some were Weeden failing to lead a receiver (despite me trying to do so). but 8 picks is still 8 picks.

    Now, if you dont mind, I'm going to go back to the 1920s and run the ball 40 times a game

    What I want to know is how many were because Kapono was using controlling the defensive player. In my opinion he is the best in this dynasty at intercepting passes while controlling the defensive player. If I was as good as him, rec would have thrown 10 picks against me in that infamous game.

    I think just 1. 4 picks by my corner, 3 by my FS, and 1 by a LB...Cheez wants to play again tonight So I'll probably go with Houston and the 3-4 defense and see what happens if we play

    :D its tough to be good at passing finally. This has made the game really fun imo (even ghough I wish there were more knockdown animations and attempts proper to the position of the players than over the shoulder ints and super lb ints). The other problem is that its too easy to run it sometimes. So we're not really forced to throw vs cpu if we don't want to (more often than not anyways). But yeah I was surprised to learn my qb is throwing just below 50%, even at 91 acc and 94 thp. I thought was doing around 55-60%. Its tough!

    Which bet was that again?

    I cannot say enough about the D that Kapono played. I was scared to run a draw against the 3-3-5 (failed every time i did), so he was able to just sit back and watch me flail around like a fish out of water.

    Of course, even he admitted that I had my moments where it appeared like I knew what i was doing.... but that was only because i think he put me back in the bowl and pulled me out again... toying with me.

    Kapono, please correct me if I'm wrong here, but these were the picks by quarter:

    1st quarter: 3
    2nd quarter: 1
    3rd quarter: 1
    4th quarter: 3

    Yeah, I think that's it. I didn't do too well passing. 4 picks, but 3 were by Geno Smith's backup.

    Not to mention I took 2 of your receivers out for the game as well. That couldn't have helped much.

    So Cheez, you were right, if you throw it 20 times a game you wont throw 2 picks (y)

    3 Yards and a cloud of dust is cheez's offense...unless he's playing me, then its 77 yards and a cloud of dust...when the dust settles, its usually 28-0 in the 2nd quarter!
