    We're just hangin in there- had some more injuries in this game as well. Got our 3rd stringer in at QB and I'm slinging it all over the field. He's actually been pretty darn effective but we just don't have enough guys that are proficient at catching the football. Drops really kept this one closer than it should have been.

    lol, I don't pay those guys. Jacoby Ford did have a spectacular game though. He played a part in every point we scored in the 2nd half.

    Well since you didn't score in the first half, it was literally in every point you scored.

    But if we would've switched quarterbacks for that game I guarantee you we would've won. It's sad when our quarterback is so inept at reading defenses and making throws that I would rather have Jason Campbell as our quarterback.

    The bad part is Nnamdi, Louis Murphy, and Zach Miller didn't play in this game. We might would have scored or something in the first half had they played. You can have Campbell though. He is really inconsistent at the QB position. One minute he'll make a bad throw and miss a wide open receiver then the next minute he'll throw a perfect pass into double coverage. Anyway, don't be sour about it. It's life. You win some and you LOSE some lol.

    Lol, I'm not sour, I just hate our quarterback. We have played much better this season than anyone expected and we still have a very good shot at making the playoffs. But all of that is attributable to our defense and our running backs. In addition to Charlie Weis and Romeo Crennel. Our main weakness is the most important one, and I hate to lose games because of a shitty ass quarterback. The bad thing is that it's not just that Cassel couldn't come through and he didn't win us the game, no he literally lost us the game. You were able to ket on the run the whole game and as such shut down the #1 running game in the league, and we couldn't take advantage of it through the air. If he was a mediocre quarterback, you would've at least have had to respect the possibility of the pass, but that wasn't the case. He interception at the end of the 1st half and his shitty play the whole game cost us that game. You guys are a good team, and played a good game no doubt. But Matt Cassel won you the game.

    People are starting to get COD so I have created a COD forum. Check it out if you want to post impressions or schedule matches or whatever. I don't have the game yet, but I know Kid and stop have it so hopefully they post some impressions in the impressions thread I just created.

    Well they dropping like flies out here. Playmaker just informed me that he's retiring. I'll wait until the offseason before looking for a replacement. I'll see how many people quit with Call of Duty coming out.

    Playmaker quit? No way. I'll never believe it.


    Anyways, I just had to come back from 24 down in the fourth quarter to beat Baylor. That sim defense will get you sometimes. Either way, I ended up winning by 14 after scoring 52 in the second half, but it was way more nerve wrenching than in should have been.

    hmm I'll have to say I'm seriously considering it. It doesn't help that I absolutely SUCK ass at the game. I'm only really staying right now cause I said I wouldn't quit when COD came out and I don't wanna hear the " I TOLD YOU SO" from splff. I am , however, sensing that I'm not the only one who feels that interest is definitely waning... hmmm we'll see.

    Well shit, I hope that you guys at least finish the season. That's for everyone. If you wanna quit, I ask that you at least finish the season. Then we'll evaluate where we're at.

    I want to keep playing if we have enough people, but I'm starting up my own here in a bit if anyone wants to legitimately keep playing for at least a few more months. Ideally I want to keep it going up until NCAA 12 is released but we'll see how that goes.

    I'm going to post a thread to seek out people on OS here in a bit. I know a few people are quitting these and so I'm not sure if Rivals and Workers are going to survive, if they do, great, I'll still be a part of them. Regardless if they do or don't, if anyone wants to be a part of my new OD, it's going to be a BCS conference dynasty with 2 teams per BCS conference, let me know. Just FYI though, it is going to feature a significantly tougher CPU and tougher recruiting as well. Myself, Stop, Joker, and Clark are all already committed. If you're interested, or will be if these dynasties don't last, let me know.
