    Wiggins lasted a game and a half as the Cardinal Starting QB as he is now benched for Jeremy Moore who comes in to save the day. Georgia's HB ran for 200+ yrds while breaking 11 tackles. Luckily my defense forced there QB into 5 Turnovers by himself to keep us in the game..

    Same horseshit defense. I thought after the Clemson win in week 1 I had a decent team...nope. It didn't help that my entire offense didn't last past the 1st 8 min. During the first quarter I lost my #1 and #3 WRs for 2 weeks and 2 quarters respectively. Later in the same quarter I lost both my RG and my RT for the remainder of the game. Then my QB started getting drilled and I lost him for a quarter. During the second quarter, when I was still in the game, both my TE and my HB fumbled the ball in the red zone and Kentucky picked it up. One of the fumbles was returned for a touchdown. My QBs accuracy is awful and it showed up big time in this game. Once I was forced to throw on every down the game was over. My QB threw it right to the Kentucky defense 5 times. Overall I had 8 turnovers, 5 INTs (some of which were godly plays by the Kentucky seconday) and 3 fumbles.

    Just the perfect storm of things going wrong.

    It seems like in real life, a spread passing offense can be the great equalizer if you have a coaching staff that's good at teaching it. However, in this game short passes are sometimes more dangerous than anything and it is very difficult to sustain drives or take any time off the clock if you're a spread passing attack. I know it would be boring if we were all running pro style offenses but I really think it's the easiest way to at least keep the other team off the field for awhile and rest the defense, which is obviously suffering.

    I know I know. I am a pro-style guy and run that offense in every other league. I was trying to go outside the box and do something different in this league...which obviously isn't working. Maybe I'll have to switch it up.

    I hear ya. Short of that, I would figure out some ways to get my offense going in small increments, and take some time off the clock... lol

    That's probably why in this version of the game I run more than any other version.

    Nah I'm just going to switch up the way I use it....at least against the CPU ;)

    Honestly though against Kentucky I didn't try to go for the big play all that much and I tried to run the ball, but the fumbles killed me early and I had to start throwing and going for the quick strike...then it just snowballed. My defense is the real issue, I can't figure out why they are so awful compared to my other teams.

    Have a defensive secondary that is ridiculous and catch me when I'm running a completely different offense than before!

    There are hardly any losses that are easy to swallow. Getting destroyed or losing on the last play....it all hurts!

    It was a wacky game overall, neither of us would've been happy with the result. Bruce woulda been more upset than me in the event of a loss. He had way more bad breaks, but ugh, 26 seconds left and no timeouts and he goes down the field to win the game after my defense played a hell of a game sure is a crappy feeling.

    Yeah, I just knew what was coming, seemingly called the right defense for it. Had everyone backed up, and my corner gets stuck in the ground as his man runs a post right by him. Not to mention my safety who for whatever reason goes to the middle of the field instead of guarding the sidelines like he was supposed to do.

    Maybe that was the EA gods evening things out for when Bruce got the ball stripped at the 1 inch line as he was about to go into the endzone to take the lead halfway through the 4th, lol.

    Yeah, but still, the zone is to the sideline, he needs to do his job! LOL
