Re: ATF Madden?

With the recent signing of Mr. Favre to the Vikes, do we want to hold off on creating a franchise for a week or so to let the rosters catch up? They might push him out tomorrow, in which case cool, but it'd be kind of lame to start tonight and have the Vikings lose out on their actual QB for the season especially since that's a team a human will probably end up picking.

I don't forsee any huge earth-shaking moves of this nature left...but is that delay cool with folks?

Re: ATF Madden?

The franchise is off to a roaring start.

Highlights from Week 1:
  • Dane ekes out a win over the fearsome Browns 38-31.
  • Gryphon is crushed by the mighty Rams 24-6.
  • Skillet wins 56-0 over the Lions, but the game is ruled invalid due to Russian Mafia interference. Replay is ongoing, but sounds more like a much closer match-up.
  • Stoke drove down the field on his opening drive to lead 7-0, and this marked the end of his participation in the scoring summary. The Iggles posted 45 unanswered points. The highlights were the "DEATH TO THE UPRIGHTS" field goal attempt by the Panthers from the 3 yard line and the 104 yard Pick 6 by the Eagles.

Hurry CB!

Re: ATF Madden?

Week 2's match-up of Skillet vs. Silver was quite the shoot-out. Both teams marching up and down the field at will, the Eagles went into the half leading 31-28. Skillet took the lead 35-31 but the Iggles managed to match it prompting a 38-35 score going into the fourth. Philadelphia went up 45-35 on the back of Westbrook, but Skillet immediately returned the kickoff to cut the margin back to three. The Eagles managed a field goal to put the score at 48-42, and the stage was set for Skillet's great upset victory...


...until Shockey fumbled a long pass reception and Sheldon Brown (also known as the Stoke-killer) ran the fumble all the way back. The Saints put it into the endzone one more time, but were unable to recover the onside kick. The Iggles cheered as they escaped with a 54-49 win.

Odd factoid of the season: The Eagles have had 100+ yard interception returns in consecutive weeks.

Re: ATF Madden?

I took my frustrations out on the Falcons today and evened my record to 1-1. I'm 0-2 to Silver and both have been ass whippings.

Re: ATF Madden?

How about if we also set up our own little schedule here where we all just play each other head to head as well? The 5 (6 if CB gets his ass in gear) could play each other at least twice (in each persons home stadium) and post the results here. Or something similar..

Re: ATF Madden?

That'd be cool as well. I'll be advancing the franchise whenever I notice all the human games have been played, so that'll proceed at a variable rate. Starting next Friday I'll advance it regardless of outstanding games if we haven't previous in the week (to keep one game from holding up all of us).

How about we play each other twice (swapping stadiums) and that determines the seeding for a tournament?

Seed 1 plays Seed 6 -> "Championship"
Seed 2 plays Seed 5, Seed 3 plays Seed 4 -> Winners play each other -> "Championship"

Seems simple enough.
