LIONS SOLD!

Today has brought big news regarding the Detroit Lions. The franchise has surprisingly been sold to a financial mogul known as the BritPitbull. Naturally, Lions fans will be concerned with the new owner’s intentions. In an interview with the Detroit Lions Radio Network early this morning, Brit spelled out his vision for the team:

Quote:
What this franchise is crying out for is a change in philosophy. I want to build a team that is the scourge of the league. A team that plays a smash-mouth brand of football, that will hurt you physically when they have the ball and when they don’t. Personally, I favour a power running game and a 3-4 defensive scheme – which is a radical change to the current system. The important thing for me is that we have less star individuals on the roster and more team players who will dig deep and fight to the death for each other”.
These are words that are sure to alarm the current coaching and playing staff. Brit went on to hint at his possible future plans for the franchise;
Quote:
I think the market for an NFL team is just not there in Detroit and hasn’t been for some time. Maybe there are greener pastures elsewhere. As an Englishman, I know that many of my countrymen would love to see a franchise in London”.
Could Brit be serious about moving the franchise or is he simply trying to stir up the interest of the fans and motivate the team. Only time will tell?

Welcome to what I hope will be an interesting and fun franchise with me at the helm as owner of the Detroit Lions.

My Background
I started playing Madden in the early-1990s on the Commodore Amiga. I used to be a regular slider set creator on the old MaddenMania forums about a decade ago where myself and another user (SM27) compiled a full slider and 32 team gameplan set that became known as the Madden Manifesto. This revolutionised Madden 05 (in which the CPU didn’t run the ball until the Manifesto was implemented) for many of the community and we were both offered jobs as testers by Tiburon. Exasperated by the state of the game I stopped playing Madden for many years, only to return for the improved experience of Madden 25. Now Madden 15 is here and for the first time since the 1990s, I’m thoroughly enjoying the game once again.

The Detroit Lions - History
In 1929 the Portsmouth Spartans were formed. Joining the NFL a year later, they were immediately successful but were soon sold due to the Depression and were moved to Detroit in 1934.

The newly formed Lions, as they were now to be known, won 4 NFL championships during the next 23 years but since 1957 the team and its fans have been strangers to success.

The Lions have not won their division since 1993. The franchise has only been to the playoffs 9 times since 1970 and has never reached the Superbowl. In 2008 the Lions “achieved” notoriety as the first team in NFL history to lose all 16 of their games.

The Lions might be a poor team but they have always had good players. The names of Dutch Clark, Dick “Night Train” Lane, Bobby Lane, Dick LeBeau, Doak Walker and Barry Sanders are legendary in the game of American Football. Despite suffering yet another losing season last year, the current roster is bursting with talent such as the dominant Calvin Johnson, the irrepressible Ndamukong Suh and the explosive Reggie Bush. The Lions would seem the ideal franchise to pick as a project for this year.

Game Notes
The Seahawks are 26-23 all time versus the Chargers, with a lot of those games coming back in the old AFC West days.


Players to Watch

Offense:


Philip Rivers - QB: Rivers had a resurgence in 2013 lifting the Chargers to the playoffs on the back of one of his more impressive seasons. Like Rodgers last week he will have no problems going right after the LOB in this one.

Defense:


Eric Weddle - FS: Weddle is one of the best in the game at safety. He will be coming up a lot to stop the Beast mode train from running over the Chargers in this one.

Prediction: The Chargers are an exciting young team with a good quarterback, and an opportunistic defense. They will make this one exciting for the home town fans, but in the end They don't yet have the horses to overcome the reigning champs. Seahawks 24, Chargers 21

Jadeveon Clowney goes down




Texans number one overall pick Jadeveon Clowney had an inauspicious start to his career on Sunday as he had to leave the game with a pulled groin muscle. Doctors expect the phenom to miss 2-4 weeks with the injury.

Chandler Jones injured in Pats loss




Patriots pass rusher Chandler Jones suffered a gruesome looking dislocated ankle in the loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Doctors expect Jones to be out 3-4 weeks with the injury.

Seahawks run over Packers to start defense of crown




Percy Harvin scores on a 20 yd TD pass

Seattle - The Seattle Seahawks opened their title defense in impressive fashion on Thursday night with a 34-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers. Marshawn Lynch was dominant on the ground racking up 163 yards, while the defense was able to sack Green Bay quarterbacks seven times, twice sending Aaron Rodgers to the sideline in pain to regroup. While Rodgers statistically ended up having a decent day, it was in vain as the Packers had to abandon the run early after falling behind 20-0 in the first half. This allowed the Seahawks to keep pounding Lynch and working the clock. The Seahawks will now have an extra few days off to prepare for their trip to San Diego where they will face Phillip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers next Sunday.

My goal with this dynasty is to as closely replicate the NFL as possible. I am using 32 team control on this franchise, while playing all games as the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. I am following all real life supsensions/and injuries to start off the dynasty and will adjust rosters and depth charts from there. So without further ado, lets get the season started, and we know who's kicking it off this year...


The Seattle Seahawks welcome the entire NFL to kickoff 2014 in the Emerald City. There will be many great pregame festivities downtown, including a concert by local rock legends Soundgarden, and Pharrell Williams, but those are just appetizers for the main event that will be taking place in CenturyLink Field Thursday night. The defending champion Seahawks will welcome in the Green Bay Packers, a team many feel will challenge them for their throne this season, as well as a team that no doubt still has a bad taste in it's mouth from the infamous "fail mary" of two years ago. Will Aaron Rodgers be able to figure out the Legion of Boom? Or will another team fall victim to the 12th Man in primetime in Seattle?

Game Notes
Seattle is 6-10 all time against Green Bay, and had lost three straight before the "Fail Mary" game. However Green Bay is only 2-3 in games played in Seattle as the majority of this series has been played on the frozen tundra.


Players to Watch

Offense:


Aaron Rodgers - QB: If there's a QB in the league with the swag to go right after the LOB it's this man. Aaron Rodgers has never lacked for confidence and flair, and will have no problems going right after the Seahawks strongest link.

Defense:


Clay Matthews - OLB: This is a potential matchup nightmare for the Hawks on Thursday, Matthews is an elite rusher who can switch sides. Expect him to do that a lot in this one to get himself matched up with Hawks rookie Justin Britt.

Prediction: Make no mistake about it, the Packers are more than a worthy challenge for the Hawks to kickoff their title defense. I wouldn't expect a blowout like night games in the past, but in the end, the 12th man's energy once the Super Bowl banner drops will be too much for Green Bay to overcome in this one.

1990 LA Raiders at 1981 Cincinnati Bengals



The Raiders with their two headed attack of Marcus Allen and Bo Jackson travel to the cold air of Riverfront Stadium and a stout Benagals team. Forrest Greg has a team that may not play nice all the time but rarely gives a game away. No word on the weather, but the Raiders haven't exactly been the best team on the road in big games.

It took a while for the Raiders to wake up in this encounter and by then it was too late. The long passing game was in full effect as Ken Anderson threw three touchdowns of over 30 yards all in the first half to build a 20-0 lead at the half. After the wakeup call the Raiders turned things around and scored on their opening drive while a Dan Ross fumble set up another score. When the Raiders defense made a stop on the next drive, Tim Brown fumbled a punt and the Bengals recovered and scored through Pete Johnson. In the 4th a Willie Gualt touchdown cut the lead to five but again special teams would play a role after Eddie Edwards blocked a Jeff Gossett kick and converted three points. In the end the first half cost the Raiders too much and their desperation in the second half lead to a number of mistakes.

2010 New England Patriots at 1986 Denver Broncos



It will be Tom Brady against John Elway in what could be a shootout at Mile High Stadium. Denver was a much better team then they showed in the Super Bowl loss in 1987 and can play in the clutch as this is the team that pulled off the "drive". The Patriots are sure to have a good gameplan in this one and won 14 games in 2010 while still having Randy Moss, Rod Gronkowski and an explosive offense.

Suffocating Tree-fense put the Ducks to the sword

It was a home opener to be remembered. The homecoming of Coach Broad was one for the ages, as Stanford shut down Oregon in a way that the Ducks haven't experienced in a number of years.

Franklin and the offense started off slow, throwing a bad pick in the first drive, but the defense was on hand to bail them out. From then on, Britton and O-Line took over, dominating the time of possession and keeping Hudson and Perry on the sideline.

But the real story here was the defense. Bowen dominated the middle of the field, and bottled the Oregon HB up all game. Clearly DC Todd Blackmon had a specific gameplan for the Ducks, and it didn't fail. Leaving FS Greco to roam the middle of the field, the Cardinal Defense came with a base 3-3-5 look, allowing the Trifecta to roam the midfield and make plays on the fringe.

The game was clearly over, but the play of the game came during the 4th Q, with Stanford completing a goal-line stand, keeping Oregon out and taking over, leaving the Duck without a TD.

Game Notes
First Pac-12 match up of the year pitches explosive offense against stout defense

The keys for the game for Oregon are to get the scoreboard moving early and to not allow Britton and the Cardinal to control the clock.

For Stanford, the keys will be keeping that explosive Oregon offense off the field, and holding them to 3 in the Red Zone

Cowboys Defense Shows Up in Preseason Opener
Defense holds Chargers to 268 Total Yards

Dallas, TX -- If there was one question mark about this Dallas Cowboys team coming into the season, it was definitely on the defense. Last season the Cowboys had one of, if not the worst defense in the NFL, ranking 32nd in yards allowed, giving up an average of 415.3 yards per game. Granted it's the preseason, but in the first true test of the year, the defense stood tall and shut down a dangerous Chargers offense in a 13-9 victory.

Dallas only allowed a total of 268 yards, while forcing one turnover and allowing just 3 field goals on the night. Off season acquisition Rolando McClain led the way with a total of 9 tackles on the night, while recently signed free agent Jabari Greer was able to pick off Phillip Rivers in his Cowboys debut.

On the offensive side of the ball however, the Cowboys seemed to struggle a bit. Only managing to amass a total of 293 yards themselves, and were only able to score one touchdown, along with 2 field goals. Josh Freeman played well in his debut for the Cowboys. Freeman, who will be battling with Brandon Weeden for the primary backup spot this season, threw for 133 yards and the games only touchdown. He did however struggle with his accuracy, only completing 13 of his 25 passes, along with an interception. Freeman was also constantly under pressure from a relentless Charger defensive front, and was frequently trying to avoid pressure.

All in all the Cowboys played a well rounded game, even with the struggles on offense. While it was refreshing to see a defense that was actually able to stop someone, it is only week 1 of the preseason after all. We will hold off on getting too excited after this game, but it does at least bring a little hope to the situation.

1971 Baltimore Colts at 2004 Pittsburgh Steelers



In his rookie season Ben Roethlisberger lead the Steelers to a 15-1 record and all the confidence in the world. Still in the big game against the Patriots the team faltered and the bad taste of that loss is hard to forget. Now the Steelers come back again in an even bigger game and face the Colts and their balanced defense in this early round game.

1988 Cincinnati Bengals at 1960 Philadelphia Eagles



A team that won the NFL championship will battle a team that came just about as close as you could to winning one. Norm Van Bronclin and the Eagles will be out to prove that old time football was more physical and more fierce in what the modern game has with all its rules. The Bengals lead by Sam Wyche will hope that Boomer Esiason will be on his game and that Ickey Woods can find some room to spark one of his shuffles.
