    The franchise has been advanced and week 5 is now open! The deadline to get your week 5 games played is Tuesday 11/18/14 @ Midnight EST.

    REMEMBER: Game recaps for any divisional games are required and must be posted by the winner in the Game Summaries & Team News forum. As always, recaps of non-divisional games are much appreciated as well!

    POINTS OF EMPHASIS for week 5 ...
    (I am repeating these same points from the Week 4 advance post. If you read them then, there is nothing new to see here and thank you. If you did NOT read them then, please review them now.)​
    • QUICK SNAPPING - We are STILL seeing a LOT of this. Again, the offense MUST give the defense adequate time to set/adjust. On plays where the accelerated clock is in effect, we should be seeing the ball snapped with 5-7 seconds (or less) left on the clock typically. If you are getting to the line and snapping at 10-12 on the play clock, you are definitely not giving the defense a fair shake.
    • MIXING UP PLAY CALLING - This goes for mixing up called plays, formations, routes, etc. We have definitely been seeing some instances of owners relying too heavily on the same thing(s) too often. Some examples are overusing formations like the pistol/shotgun on offense or the 4-6 on defense. These types of formations definitely have their place, but should not make up anywhere near the majority of a team's game plan or play calling. Everyone should also be mixing up their receiver routes, without relying exclusively on slants, drags, curls, etc. I could go on and on, but I expect that everyone understands what we are getting at here. MIX IT UP. On BOTH sides of the ball.
    • SPORTSMANSHIP - Respect for your fellow owners has always been paramount in The Q. Most of us enjoy a little good natured trash talking from time to time, but it can be a fine line between joking around and being disrespectful. What's funny before a game, might not be as funny to an owner that just took a beat down. Sometimes it just depends on the person or situation. We want everyone to have fun, but we also want to be sure that everyone is shown the respect they deserve as an owner in The Q. This goes for all communications, whether it's the forums, GroupMe, YIM, text, smoke signals, whatever.
    • PENALTIES - We have continued to monitor penalties, and will continue to do so in an attempt to strike as close to a perfect balance as we can. Penalties are part of football, and we want them to be a part of The Q. Granted, we would like to be able to adjust the variety of penalties, but that is not in our control. Just know that everyone is in the same boat with penalties, and sometimes it's just dumb luck one way or the other (much like a real game). Constantly complaining in GroupMe or other public outlets doesn't help anyone, and gets old pretty fast. If you have concerns about any league settings/policies, please reach out to myself, Doug, or Michael directly. Otherwise, let's please keep public comments constructive.
    Good luck to everyone in Week 5!

    I saw a penalty in my game with Ryan that was great to see. I stopped him on 3rd down but my CB hit his WR with a hit stick animation after he went out of bounds and I got called for unnecessary roughness. I don't feel like we'd see that if anything gets tweaked.
