05:47 PM - October 24, 2014. Written by zackebarsch10
Quick Take | The Redskins dominated the game from the beginning with the ground game. A defensive Touchdown late in the first half brought the Texans back in the game. Malletts first start of his career was an up and down game. Good wuick decisions alternated with head-scratching turnover. The line play of the Texans on both side was suspect

It was over when... | Stephen Bowen sacked Mallett for the 5th time in the game with 7 seconds left.


Game Ball | HB Alfred Morris - 26 carries, 155 yards, 2 TD's, 6.0 avg, 4 rec, 25 yards
Morris was dominating from the beginning and scored two of the three rushing TD's for Washington (with RGIII scoring the third).

Game Notes | Houston edges the Redskins in T.O.P with 35:56. Watt and Clowney can't show any dominance in their first game together. CB J. Joseph scores a safety after a failed 4th down conversion on the Redskins 4 yard line with 9:34 to go to cut the lead to 21-16 --- Stephen Bowen lived in the Texans backfield with two sacks. Newly acquiered star receiver DeSean Jackson was held to one catch for 6 yards.

JACKSONVILLE 16 | PHILADELPHIA 26
Sunday, the Jags were in Philadelphia to face the Eagles. They looked strong in the beginning but they showed their true colors as the game went on. The running game was week but showed flashes of potential. Blake Bortles fractured his arm during Fridays practice after a member of the practice squad blindsided him, that play has since been released. The box score is below.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have just announced a trade with the Buffalo Bills.

Jaguars Receive:
Two 2015 3rd round picks

Bills Receive:
MLB Paul Posluszny
HB Toby Gerhart
2016 5th round pick

What does this mean for the future? More young talent. This trade only signifies Caldwell and Bradley's push for more youth on the team, with Puzloszny out of the picture it provides an opportunity for young talent on the roster to step up and earn a roster spot or maybe more, if that doesn't happen then it opens the possibility of drafting a new ILB to build the rest of this young defense around.

With running back, Gerhart's disappearance isn't a huge movement to the foundation of the position because it isn't very good to begin with. Denard Robinson will get the start in Philly, but it will be a two headed monster it seems between him and rookie Storm Johnson. Jordan Todman will takeover Robinson's 3rd down duties.

Man, I deleted my playbook by accident that caused my blog deleted. I had to create my RNS playbook once again.

Sims Sports: http://www.simsports.net/viewPlayboo...bid=2690&gid=2

You may notice that my new RNS is different from previous one because I want to stick with true R&S. Oh yeah, I added 2 Flexbone formations because they have run n shoot plays aka. RNS and 60/61. On the other hand, I don't want one dimensional offense ,so I did spice up with Flexbone.

Playbook: RNS

Base: Run n Shoot

Notes: You may have to pick SMU to create RNS playbook in PS3/XBOX360

Requirements:

QB- Balance

Key Ratings: SPD, AGI, THA, and AWR.

Notes: You can't find mobility qb then you may need THP as well.

RB: 230+ pound Power RB.

Key Ratngs: BTK. TRK, CAR, BCV, PBK, while prefer 85 or better SPD while 90 for ACC.

Notes: You can convert FB/ATH to HB ,but you need to make sure that he has enough SPD/ACC.

WR: Mix of Balance, Speed, and Possession.

Key Ratings: SPC, RTE, CTH, CIT, ELU, RLS, and JMP

Notes: You may need PBK for receivers if you plan to use HB/WR screen plays a lot. I prefer speed for slot while possession for front of cornerbacks. Don't forget STR for possession because they will have to deal with bump n run especially big cbs.

OL: They have to be a pure Pass Blocking and less than 300. You should recruit 280-290 lbs because they're fitness not smashmouth type. AWR and ACC are must for them.

Key Plays:

Passing: Flood, Switch, 60/61, RNS

Running: Zone, Draw, Slam, and Read Option

Notes: Some run plays are same i.e. Slam/Dive ,so there is point for you take both because you can click left analog if you change direction. If you happen to have speedy qb, you can go with triple option from Flexbone, several option from shotgun/pistol.


Strategies: I have 3 scenarios that will effect your gameplay.

1. Set 85 toward to the right that means you will call passing plays for 85% of times.

This is for pure RNS and don't have great rb.

2. Set 70 toward to the right.

Only if you have great running back.

3. Set toward 60 to the right

If you happen to have speedy qb and rb, you can use flexbone frequently ,but you may need good RBK from OL and RBs, though.

Conservative/Aggressive: It should not more than 50 or less than 30 ,so 40 is ideal number for your play calling.

No Huddle: Normal

Pro: Receivers will able to deceive defense since they have choice, option, switch routes that will make difficult for defense to defend. RNS will force opponents to use 4-5 cornerbacks that mean your rb can run vs much small defenders than linebackers.

Con: Inside 5 yards and goalline are worst luck for RNS because defense will have easy to defend against passing in small area. Naturally, you will want to strike tds before reach red zone. Protect qb is not easy job for OL since RNS doesn't use fullback and tight end.
Final Notes: You may have difficult to grasp RNS at first ,but you will get better when you start to understand how to play the game. Red defense is crucial key for your qb.

Hint: You can convert TE/ATH to wide receivers if you plan to use flexbone or option plays a lot. Don't forget to replace receivers with them while sub formations.

Titans sign 10 players to Training Camp Squad
July 25, 2014

Nashville, TN -- The Titans added 10 free agent players to their preseason roster today. The players signed are: QB Tajh Boyd (23), FB Shaun Chapas (25), WR Chris Boyd (22), TE Jermichael Finley (27), G Travis Bond (23), G Andrew Tiller (25), DT Jerel Worthy (24), OLB Devonte Holloman (23), CB Champ Bailey (36), and K Rian Lindell (37).

Players of note:
-Rookie QB Tajh Boyd never came to terms with the New York Jets, who drafted him, and instead released him.
-Veteran TE Jermichael Finley signs a one-year contract with the Titans. He hopes to be fully recovered from an injury that kept him out for a majority of the 2014 season.
-Veteran CB Champ Bailey and K Rian Lindell both desire to continue playing professional football, and the Titans are very young at CB, while the Lindell signing creates a Kicker competition.
-Former Michigan St. All-American DT Jerel Worthy looks to rebound after being released by the Green Bay Packers after only 2 seasons in the NFL. The Titans are extremely thin at DT this season.

These 10 players will report to the team when Training Camp opens up tomorrow.

Bryan Rothdiener Officially New Titans Owner
Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

Nashville, TN -- Bryan Rothdiener was all smiles during his first day as the new owner of the Tennessee Titans. Mr. Rothdiener received high praises from the entire Estate of Bud Adams, including Bud’s grandson Kenneth Adams IV, who was initially in line to take over the team.

Rothdiener is not your typical suit and tie kind guy. His back story is not that of a standard billionaire either. Just 23 years old and feeling down on his luck, Rothdiener struck gold by winning the largest payout in New York State lottery history. Rothdiener was just 8 years old at the time the Titans made their move to Nashville, and he has been a fan ever since. After Mr. Adams unfortunate passing, and Rothdiener’s lottery luck struck, it seemed the stars finally aligned for the young sports fanatic. After the 2014 Draft, Rothdiener got in contact with Tommy Smith to discuss a possible sale.

Rothdiener has no intentions of moving the Titans from Nashville, although the bright lights of Los Angeles are “tempting”. He also said that he has full faith in Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt, who was hired by the Titans in January. Rothdiener said he is looking forward to meeting with the coaches and players, and molding this team into a contender this year. “I want to start my career as Titans owner off with a bang, and get this team to the playoffs this year. Obviously, the ultimate goal is to bring multiple Super Bowl Championships to Nashville. But first, there are a lot of new faces in this organization from top to bottom, and we need to get ourselves focused on becoming a cohesive unit."

The Titans open training camp on July 26th.

Hey guys this is going to be a 30 team interactive association. Two other people have tried this and it didn't pan out. I want to re-invent it. This league will have me as the commissioner, and I will run the league site as the media member.

Roles you can be:
-GM- (5 Spots available)

-Co-commish-(Filled)

-Trade Veto Board-(3-5 guys including me, probably won't need vetoes seeing as how nba trades never get vetoed but just incase we see a horrid trade.)

-Agent/Media-(I'll be one, if you're an Agent/Media guy you can't be a GM. Heres why, you break news, leak rumors so we need someone who just wants to fish around for rumors, true or false? Who knows. Media will post on the website, and on OS. If you're a Media person being an agent would be another thing you could do. Negotiate as every players agent for FA purposes, or for demanding trades, etc.)

-Cap Space guy-You can be anyone of these other roles and do this role as well. I just need someone who has a solid understanding of the CBA to help me out. I don't want this to be as strict as the real CBA, but maybe we could come up with our own rules as a league, and this guy will just help out with monitoring it with me and the other Commissioner.


Few things about the association:
1. Nobody plays games, It is all run on my association and I sim all games, and make the moves you make in my game to adjust the rosters to the moves that have been made.

2. You are the GM so you handle all your scouting, your trades, and roster moves as well as the rotations and your coach profiles so you dictate how YOUR team will play.

Questions for you guys:

1. How many guys do you want to join before we start? (Thinking at least 15 probably 20 though.)

2. Do you guys want to know players ratings from all teams, just yours, or none? Other leagues that I've done they chose none.

3. How many trading windows do you want? I was thinking no more than 3, because I don't want this to be trades were no teams resemble their current selves.

Also I was thinking of doing just 29 games. Heres why:
1-Lets us finish more seasons.
2-Helps you guys with rotations because injuries happen and it would be too tough to sim through weeks without letting you guys reset lineup.
3-This way I can go through 2 games a day for teams and you will still get to tinker with lineups, for whatever reason you want to.

Note: The league will start at Summer League so you guys can put a team in if you want and I will have the games summed for you.

Also when picking your team, if you pick a young team keep that in mind so that you want to build through young talent, and draft unless you can snag a nice trade, but most young teams hold some assets see what their potential can be.

I will be incorporating a FA calculator that determines teams talent, with city, and fan base to determine what FA's go where depending on the offers you guys make.



Hope this draws interest. Lets make this fun!



League Website I created for a different interactive association. We never got started so thats why its not 100% finished. http://fitz3411.wix.com/nbatoday#!league-hub/mainPage

Hello everyone, and welcome to my Tennessee Titans Dynasty! This is my first time posting a dynasty blog, so i'll try to make this interesting as possible. This blog should project an "Owner mode" perspective on this franchise, however, I will be using Coach mode in-game, to avoid any conflicts with the financial aspects.

My rules:
- System - PS4 (Madden 15)
- Game Mode - All-Pro
- Quarter Length - 15 Min, Acc Clock - 15 sec
- Roster - Week 1 Rosters
- I will try to be reasonable with trades and free agency.

Okay...let's get this show on the road!

Longtime NFL Franchise Sold to Team Superfan
Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Nashville, TN -- Just a few weeks before training camps open, one NFL Franchise is gaining new ownership. The Estate of Bud Adams has sold the Tennessee Titans to longtime Titans super-fan Bryan Rothdiener. The deal is believed to be for approximately $1.75 Billion, and is pending league approval.

Tommy Smith, head of the Estate of Bud Adams and Adam’s son-in-law, stated that “Bud would want this team to succeed, and we believe that in order for this to happen, we need to hand over control of the franchise to someone who has that same burning passion for the game of football that Bud had. We believe that Mr. Rothdiener can bring success to Nashville for many years to come.”

A press conference is scheduled for Tuesday, July 8th to officially announce the sale, and for Mr. Rothdiener to address the public for the first time.

BYU got some bad news Friday night.

While they may have rolled the UConn Huskies, they've lost their starting running back.

Jamaal Williams left early in the second quarter, and did not return. He complained of chest pains and x-rays confirm he has a broken rib.

There is no timetable for his return.

KSW's Tulane Power Spread Option


I was gonna post this a while ago, but it took a lot of time to write this up. This is the playbook I use in my Tulane Green Wave dynasty on NCAA Football 13. While I play on '13 the playbook will work fine in NCAA '14, but with a few differences. The SimSports link provided below shows the playbook under the NCAA '14 umbrella. While it's not exactly my offense, it is about 90%. Since most of you guys play '14 now I thought to put it there; if anyone still plays '13 like me, PM me and I can send you a link to the playbook under the NCAA '13 umbrella.


Playbook Name: KSW's Tulane Power Spread Option

Base Offense: This offense has varied so much over the years that ANY option- or spread-based playbook will do. When I created it long ago, I used Air Force as the base.

SimSports Link: http://www.simsports.net/viewPlayboo...bid=2685&gid=2


Position Requirements:
QB: Must have good mobility. Preferably someone w/ 85+ OVR Speed & Acceleration. (75-84 Speed will suffice if needed, but some of the option plays may not be as effective. Below 75 will not work. Acceleration must be at least 80.) Passing skills should be decent, but great passing isn't required (the passing in this offense isn't very in-depth). Bryan Higgins ran this offense to near-perfection in my dynasty this past season. Throwing for only 1687 yards & 18 touchdowns, he also ran for 1755 yds & 17 TDs. He won the 2017 Maxwell Award.


Tulane QB Bryan Higgins

HB: HBs can be recruited based on your preference. I prefer larger power runners but speed backs can work just fine. As long as they have good strength & elusiveness, and SOME ability to shed blockers, they're fine. This is one position where you will use Formation Subs a lot, depending on the situation & your stable of backs. In a dynasty, HB is THE FIRST position I look at when recruiting, because they can make-or-break this offense.

FB: Just as the JOKER is a wild-card in most card games, the FB position is the true wild-card in this offense. It is not required to have a FB in the offense, but having a good one can be a great luxury. If you don't have one, a good power HB or even an athletic TE can work. If you don't want one you can simply substitute a HB/TE in the position. The FB should be an all-around player: good running ability, decent hands, great at blocking. In my Tulane dynasty Fred Roach was the greatest at this. He's since graduated; here's his career stat line:


FB Fred Roach:
292 rush, 1582 yds, 21 TD
43 rec, 498 yds, 3 TD
151 pancake blocks

WR: Speed guys are preferred. Especially the slot receiver. The slot receiver is arguably the most important receiver, as he may receive the majority of the jet sweeps & motion option pitches. Nevertheless all receivers must possess decent strength, as they will have many blocking assignments. In the past I've used bigger receivers on the outside to block, with a speed demon in the slot. But all big guys or all speed demons can work, if they all have good running ability & decent strength. If you throw it as much as I do however, they won't catch a lot of passes.

TE: Like the FB, the TE position can be a wild-card in this offense. A big TE can be a great mismatch down the field, while a smaller TE can play in the backfield as a FB sub. But this one fact is important: ALL TIGHT ENDS MUST BE ABLE TO BLOCK. For this reason I recruit primarily "Blocking" TE's, as I personally don't throw it enough to consider recruiting a good receiving threat. A typical TE in my offense may average between 10-30 catches a season, but over 50 pancake blocks. Great strength & blocking ability is a must, but good hands are a bonus.

Offensive Line: The skills of your O-line will greatly depend on how much you like throwing the ball. If you're run-heavy like me, you better recruit "Run Block" O-linemen. Guys who can dominate the trenches at all times are a must. They need to get great push to have success on dive runs, but must also be athletic enough to block downfield on sweeps, outside run plays and screen passes. As I said with HB's, if you're using this playbook in a dynasty the offensive line would be one of the first positions I'd consider when recruiting, because they too can make-or-break the offense. For guys who throw the ball more than I do, "Balanced" lineman will do.


Key Plays:
The playbook has a fair amount of passing plays, but it's a run-first offense. Use the power running game to set up either the play-action pass or the option game. Most of the passing plays are either short patterns, inside routes or screens, meant to catch the defense napping. When they commit to stopping the run, throw a deep one over the middle. Short pass should be the majority of your passing, which is why passing numbers will typically be low. I treat screen plays as extended running plays, so the passing plays I call most frequently are Slants, Curls, and HB Slip Screen. Ideally most of the deep-ball passing will be done out of play action.

The option plays are important too, as it's all about deception in this offense. You always want to keep the defense guessing on every down. Run a few HB/FB dive plays with your HB or FB to start, then have your QB pull out the read option & gash the defense for a big gain. Every now & then throw out a jet sweep or motion option run with a speedy WR, or a speed option with the HB. The defense should never know what hits them. THIS is the primary reason why my playbook has a whopping 26 formations. Though most formations will contain only 9, 12, or 15 plays, you always want to throw many looks at the defense to keep them on their toes.


Recruiting Recommendations:
QB: Scrambler
HB: Doesn't matter (depends on your preference)
FB: Receiving
WR: Speed preferred (though a fast Possession guy can work)
TE: Blocking
OL: Run Block preferred (though Balanced can work)

This offense can also work well with great ATH's. Depending on their skill set they can find many roles in the system. For example, Bryan Higgins was an ATH when I recruited him, and my HB Josh Williams was also an ATH at first.


Strategies:
The base alignments of the playbook are the Ace, I Form, Pistol and Shotgun. These four alignments I feel link together really well, because they're really 4 offenses wrapped into one. You could go Ace-Pistol combo (since a lot of formations overlap between the two), Ace-I Form (for a heavy dose of power football), Ace-Shotgun (for you Pro Style/One Back enthusiasts), or Pistol-Shotgun (for those who love the Spread offense). Ideally you can use any combination of the four base alignments, but I feel those four mentioned work best as a cohesive unit. I run Pistol-Shotgun combo the most, but you should really play to the hand of the defense. In my Tulane dynasty I could run a lot of Pistol-Shotgun one game, then run Ace-I Form the next. Just take whatever the defense gives you. DON'T FORCE ANYTHING. The best way to run this offense is to play "situational football."

On a per-game average, my play-calling is typically about 70% run, 30% pass. I run 9:00 quarters in my dynasty, and I average between 60-80 plays a game. As far as stats are concerned I aim for over 300 yards a game rushing, while only 100-200 yards passing. If I hit my quota it's a good game; if not I need to tweak my playcalling. This offense CAN work out of hurry-up/no-huddle, though I prefer not to play that way. I like to take time & mix up the formation look, sending out a different combo of players every few plays. That being said, if you want to run no-huddle the offense is perfectly set up to do that. I love to utilize match-ups. In the dynasty my current feature back is a Power back, but on some plays I will bring in a smaller, quicker HB. The Speed back is best fit for the 3- or 4-WR sets where I could run option, or throw a screen pass to him. When I want to go full-on power, I'll sub in a FB at RB, and perhaps substitute a bigger power QB for my typically smaller speed QB. Sometimes I'll put a WR or TE in the backfield, sometimes I'll have 2 FB's. Like I said, it's all about match-ups.


Additional Notes: Not much more to add here, everything's pretty much been explained. You can run this offense however you like, and have fun with it. I know it's a large playbook, but it's meant that way. The point is to be able to run whatever you need at any time. With this offense my Tulane team has enjoyed much success. The team won the national title this past season, and is set to defend the title this season. I try to tweak/update the playbook every offseason, so I'll update the above SimSports link as needed. The playbook will also be posted in my "arena." If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. Enjoy!

Despite a huge day from Max DeLorenzo (240 total yards, 3 touchdowns), the Huskies couldn't keep pace with the Cougars. BYU's up tempo offense had the Huskies looking gassed, and head coach Bob Diaco wasn't pleased.

"Obviously, this isn't how you want to start a season," he said after the game. "But, there were some positives. I thought that we ran well, and I think that we were fairly safe with the ball."


On the flipside, Bronco Mendenhall was proud of his team. "The guys played well, but we gave up some big plays. Next week [against Texas], we can't do that because they'll take advantage."

The Cougars go to 1-0 on the year, while UConn falls to 0-1. BYU hits the road again next week to take on the Texas Longhorns
