    I was hoping Cheez would at least sleep on it but it looks like he didnt. God knows this game frustrates the shit out of me too sometimes.

    Even after sleeping - I made the right call in my mind.

    Simply put, I don't like the game. In previous renditions, I have enjoyed playing defense. I have always enjoyed defense more than offense, actually. In this year's version, defense has been neutered to a point where defense is virtually impossible. If a team runs a half-way decent offense, (or a spread offense, or an option offense, or an air raid offense), they should have no issues scoring on every drive regardless of the defenses called. I vowed that I would wait until the patch came out to make my decision, and I did just that. The patch did nothing to help, and I played a game with Zach last night that saw exactly 0 punts. The lack of defense was certainly on display, and I have had enough of it. This was not the first game I've had like this, and would certainly not be the last if I chose to continue.

    If there was a change in how defense operates, I would be open to coming back. But this seems to be the way that EA wants the game to run, because we are not their target audience. The little kids and the lobby boys are, and they want to score. It's a damn shame, because I have been playing this franchise for over 15 years - year in and year out. This is the first time I have ever quit because the game is so atrocious in my mind. The only reason I continued playing as long as I did is because I enjoy playing with you guys. We may not be the fastest moving league on the site or anything, but we sure have the most fun.

    I wish you all the best. If you know of any jobs out there, keep me informed. I am tired of not getting off work until 1am.

    Jayrah - assuming both user games happen tonight we are advancing later. Make sure you get your CPU game before about 10pm.

    Or...the more likely scenario is that he thinks he has a bye week.

    recchem2000 if you are home and can log in as me to invite GMONEY 15 so he can recruit/play his CPU game before later tonight that would help. I literally won't have access to my xbox until close to 9pm PST.

    Worst case we let the CPU handle his week 4 stuff and he gets invited right after I advance to week 5?

    gmoney is likely at work or sleeping right now. He'll be on tonight though. Don't hold anything up for him, he's running with the big dogs now, recchem warned him he'd have to keep up. :)
