It may be 2013 already, but in the NFL it’s the start of the 2012-season playoffs; don’t forget, it’s win or go home. On Saturday the #6-seed Cincinnati Bengals travel to the #3 Houston Texans, who want a big performance (on top of the win) to regain early-season confidence (2130 – Sky Sports). In the late KO the #3 Green Bay Packers will be looking to avenge their loss to the #6 Minnesota Vikings in a repeat of last week’s game (0100 Sun am – Sky Sports). On Sunday the surging #5 Indianapolis Colts play the off-form #4 Baltimore Ravens (1800 – Sky Sports). Baltimore have some added impetus as legend Ray Lewis has just announced these playoffs are to be his ‘retirement party’ Finally the #5 Seattle Seahawks play at the #4 Washington Redskins (2130 – Sky Sports); will RG3 have enough fitness back to be as much of a threat as he has shown he can be?… (1 hour highlights package late Monday on BBC2 – 0010 Tues am).

    Wildcard weekend should be good - especially as the Patriots have a bye!

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:02

    I saw somewhere that the Vikings were unsure about whether Ponder would start tonight or not. Anyone know about that?

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:02

    It's strange how the Vikes-Packers game is now soo much more interesting than last week.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:04

    All the games are showing as blacked out on Gamepass :-(

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:04

    Ponder is questionable (elbow) - on NFL Gameday NOW.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:04

    I saw somewhere that the Vikings were unsure about whether Ponder would start tonight or not. Anyone know about that?

    He has been limited in practice all week... I've heard nothing concrete. (I guess he'll start as it's such a big game.)

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:05

    All the games are showing as blacked out on Gamepass :-(

    Can you use a 'helpful' proxy?

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:05

    Webb *may* start, Webb likely to come in at some point if he does. So it's run run run for the Vikings...

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:05

    I'll use one of those sites where you need to turn the JavaScript off.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:05

    The Pack can just bring all their safeties into the box.

    I am really looking forward to the playoffs.

    Vikings might not be a passing team, but if you can't run and pass, you can't win in the playoffs. Big problem for them.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:08

    You do need the threat of one to help facilitate the other.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:08

    Time before KO for everyone to make their picks for this week. ^^

    And also read my Playoffs Preview http://sidepodcast.com/post/nfl-2012-post-season-preview (if you've not already) ;) #pluggage

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:10

    Warren Sapp says Webbis a more than capable backup, but the issue is, coming in at the start of the playoffs, is a really tough time to come in when you've thrown 1 pass for -1 yards all season...

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:12

    Nice group we've got going there, glad we went with it!

  • Steven Roy05/01/2013 at 21:14

    Nice group we've got going there, glad we went with it!

    It's just a shame we didn't do it sooner. That would have given us tiime to get more people involved and maybe get them watching some games. Any time we get involved in a fantasy competition we get more entries than you think possible. When we did fantasy racers F1 competition we had a few hundred people in our league

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:15

    I didn't think I could be bother, then Playoff-fever hit me, so in the future we can be more organised :) (Like real fantasy next year?)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:18

    If you've not got tickets for the NFL games in London next year, individual game tickets go on sale on Thursday at 10am.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:20

    Interesting fact about Bengals at Texans: Andy Dalton has more QBing experience in the playoffs in this stadium than Matt Schaub.

  • Steven Roy05/01/2013 at 21:21

    I didn't think I could be bother, then Playoff-fever hit me, so in the future we can be more organised :) (Like real fantasy next year?)

    It has to be worth a try.

    I wonder if there is fantasy Crashed Ice :)

    Breaking: Webb is starting for the Vikes later.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:32

    Breaking: Webb is starting for the Vikes later.

    Breaking: Webb's elbow after two plays!

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:35

    Everybody pick AP, all the offence (and so fantasy points) will be going through him.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:36

    (Any fantasy players in this game have been revealed.)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:36

    Everybody pick AP, all the offence (and so fantasy points) will be going through him.

    Wasn't not going to pick him! But he'll need replaced next week.

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 21:36

    I bet mr. C is is cheering for Cinn, because he got confused and actually thought they whre the Bangles!

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:37

    Wasn't not going to pick him! But he'll need replaced next week.

    I've not picked him for exactly that reason. I fancy the multipliers.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:38

    I've not picked him for exactly that reason. I fancy the multipliers.

    Me too, but if you pick bye week players for the multipliers, and they lose next week, you can end up looking really daft!

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:38

    Texans 3-&-out

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:38

    Me too, but if you pick bye week players for the multipliers, and they lose next week, you can end up looking really daft!

    Oooo good point. But you'll still get 2x their score.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:39

    Anyone with the Bengals' D? It's early, but looking good.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:39

    Oooo good point. But you'll still get 2x their score.

    Yes, but potentially 2x not much doesn't beat 1x good :-)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:39

    Anyone with the Bengals' D? It's early, but looking good.

    Broncos' for me :-)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:40

    Bad drop on 2nd down

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:40

    Broncos' for me :-)

    Yeah same.

    Yes, but potentially 2x not much doesn't beat 1x good :-)

    2x an average Moreno will probs be better than 1x AP (I hope).

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:41

    2x an average Moreno will probs be better than 1x AP (I hope).

    Hard to tell - especially having not seen the scoring system

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:42

    There is a menu on the top right of the page Rules & Prizing which explains it all in great detail and length.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:44

    Cam Newton's in a Windows Phone 8 ad :-)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:44

    There is a menu on the top right of the page Rules & Prizing which explains it all in great detail and length.

    Yeah, I'll pass :-) Too busy to read that nonsense ;-)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:44

    PS, had Crashed Ice round 2 happened yet?

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:45

    Yeah, I'll pass :-) Too busy to read that nonsense ;-)

    Let me paraphrase: The better the player plays, the more points he earns, and the more games they play for, the bigger the multiplier.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:45

    and we have a first down!

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:46

    Woohoo. LB was flat-footed.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:46

    Let me paraphrase: The better the player plays, the more points he earns, and the more games they play for, the bigger the multiplier.

    is emphasis on yards, or touchdowns? On D, is it all about turnovers?

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:47

    the end around was so obvious there. Can't believe the Bengals fell for that.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:49

    is emphasis on yards, or touchdowns? On D, is it all about turnovers?

    TDs (6 for scoring, 4 for throwing), 1 per every 10/25 yards (run/pass), -2 for TOs.

    D is all about TO and def-TDs, and then losing points for allowing huge scores against.

    (etc)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:49

    Texans come up short on 3rd down

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:50

    48year FG?

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:50

    48year FG?

    Don't think anyone can kick one that far ;-) FG good, 3-0 Texans.

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 21:51

    Yay! I already have 5 pts on my fanstay team....

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:51

    Don't think anyone can kick one that far ;-) FG good, 3-0 Texans.

    48-year hangtime, wow!!

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:55

    The Law-Firm, Benjarvis Green-Ellis

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 21:55

    Whew! Glad I did not pick the Texcans defence....

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 21:57

    Oh! Sacked!

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 21:57

    Whew! Glad I did not pick the Texcans defence....

    Early days. They'll create turnovers and create plenty of pass rush.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 21:57

    Sure there are points for sacking Schaub

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:01

    Commentators asking why the Texans struggled at the end of the season. Saying it's ok - last four games were against playoff teams. That's all well and good, but now they have to beat those teams. That'll be their problem come next week.

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:02

    Come on Johnson!

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 22:02

    I'd agree completely. And now they have no bye and no momentum.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 22:06

    3rd and inches

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:06

    QB Sneak time....

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:07

    Wow, Schaub just ran for his first 1st down of the season.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:07

    He's no Brady, clearly...

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 22:07

    Either a v good or v poor stat - I can't decide.

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:08

    Easy FG range so let us run that ball!

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:09

    Either a v good or v poor stat - I can't decide.

    Houston have started well, making plays on pass and play action pass. Bengals did well to keep them to a FG. Honours even so far.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 22:11

    Houston have started well, making plays on pass and play action pass. Bengals did well to keep them to a FG. Honours even so far.

    I mean Schaub running for his 1st 1st down just now - either offence hasn't needed him to, or he's failed to manage even one.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:11

    FG time again...

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:12

    I mean Schaub running for his 1st 1st down just now - either offence hasn't needed him to, or he's failed to manage even one.

    Maybe they gave it to Foster most of the time?

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 22:12

    Defensive game = low-scoring. Anyone with the HOU kicker?

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:13

    Defensive game = low-scoring. Anyone with the HOU kicker?

    Yup, I have Graham on my team for now....

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:18

    Texanshave great coverage on pass at the moment.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:19

    Pick!

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:20

    Oh, incomplete?

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:20

    Well, they're pretty much where it finished anyway.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:21

    Looks like the correct call from the replay, to me. Bad throw though.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:22

    I think the Bengals will struggle if they go more than 1 TD down. I don't think they have enough offensive threat to trouble the Texans from far back.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:22

    Oh, pick 6!

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:22

    That was a great play, undercut the route.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:23

    Commentators are calling it a bad throw now, but that was just a great play.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 22:23

    I'm behind and now watching closely :D

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 22:23

    Great read by the CB

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:23

    I'm behind and now watching closely :D

    Oops, sorry. Let me know where you're up to for syncing comments :-)

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 22:24

    Not a problem. Just call it when you see it.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:24

    Great read by the CB

    My thoughts too. That was all about the CB making the play.

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:25

    crap! Bengals INT TD.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:28

    Tell you what, that Bengals TD was the best example possible of why people always say defense wins Superbowls.

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:28

    That better start moving those sticks....

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:32

    Have we been checking our Fantasy Team scorces, out there?

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:36

    Have we been checking our Fantasy Team scorces, out there?

    no, too early for that!

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:36

    Bah, TO Houston....

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:38

    Bengals' redzone defense is good, but that was all about a missed catch.

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:38

    Oh, for crying out loud, only a FG?

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 22:39

    Oh, for crying out loud, only a FG?

    yep :-)

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:40

    Like really, I am of the believe that once you get past the 5, always go for a TD early in the game. So what if the other team gets athe ball deep in their own end if you screw up?

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 22:46

    I am off to hunt down some quiestionable food. Bye everyone.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 22:47

    I am off to hunt down some quiestionable food. Bye everyone.

    Enjoy.

    Problem is, you can end up with 0 points on the board instead of 9.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:10

    HOU are steamrolling the HT stats board.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:12

    I thought offsides on a kickoff meant a rekick, not a 5 yard penalty?

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:13

    Oh, looks like Noelinho 1, NFL refs 0 on the NFL rulebook there :-)

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:13

    I thought offsides on a kickoff meant a rekick, not a 5 yard penalty?

    I've not seen one before... but would've guessed at more than 5. Hardly any discouragement/punishment. Maybe TB changes the penalty?

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:13

    Ah, Mike Pereira helpfully confirms they have the option of either enforcing the penalty after the kickoff, or to rekick.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:14

    It's the same on punts - you can take the five yards, or opt for a second punt.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:14

    And starting on the 25 is a reasonable place to go from.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:15

    Texans' defense is too good for the Bengals today.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:15

    flag

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:16

    That's a flag all day. That's as unsporting as you can get.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:16

    Fair-catch?

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:16

    Big hit

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:16

    That's two penalties really.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:16

    Fair-catch?

    Are you asking what that is?

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:16

    No I know, asking why they didn't.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:17

    He was hit before the ball got there, plus he called for the fair catch.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:17

    Like you say, 2 infringements.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:18

    Like you say, 2 infringements.

    Technically you have to catch the ball before the second penalty can be called, so it's just one, but it doesn't matter - both are 15 yards. Bengals should be made to pay for that - Texans will start around midfield.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:19

    Yeah, I'd agree that you can't commit the 2nd until he has possession :)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:22

    Bengals have given the Texans 20 yards and a 1st down on this drive - and that was a 3rd down penalty. Ouch.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:22

    If anyone picked AJGreen they'll be spitting feathers. No targets in the 1st half.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:25

    Wow, Foster already was 99 yards on the ground. Think he's my second RB :-)

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:26

    Grumbles. I put him back.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:27

    Wow, Foster already was 99 yards on the ground. Think he's my second RB :-)

    100 yards plus a TD should be 16 points.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:28

    Ponder is inactive.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:29

    My arm just had a really weird spasm. My whole right side had a little momentary fit.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:29

    Maybe an unknown QB will be like unveiling another Kaepernick - no film...

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:30

    My arm just had a really weird spasm. My whole right side had a little momentary fit.

    Sympathy pains for Ponder?

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:30

    Maybe an unknown QB will be like unveiling another Kaepernick - no film...

    Hmm. Don't think he's as good tbh!

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:31

    Dalton makes the deep pass this time. Wasn't double coverage, which helped.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:31

    Hmm. Don't think he's as good tbh!

    Me either. At least Kaep ran the WildCat at times. I've nothing on Webb.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:31

    Me either. At least Kaep ran the WildCat at times. I've nothing on Webb.

    Think he's got -1 yards this season.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:31

    Think he's got -1 yards this season.

    Ha. #GameOver

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:32

    Ha. #GameOver

    To be fair, I think that's on one play, which is always a really bad indicator!

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:32

    Dalton has finally realised that he's Green's on the field

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:33

    To be fair, I think that's on one play, which is always a really bad indicator!

    True. (The Chargers never even used their backup... He just wore a headset and relayed the plays.)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:33

    Challenge: Houston think pass was complete.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:33

    Wait, no, it'll be a fumble?

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:34

    Meh, wasn't paying enough attention. Defensive challenge.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:34

    Looking at his arm motion... Fumble or no. I wasn't looking closely enough either.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:35

    It'll be a FG attempt.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:36

    Correct calls on the field and from the under the hood.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:36

    It's a one-possession game again.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:38

    Last night I was wondering what the difference between a screen and a bubble screen was, and then worked it out in my sleep.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:38

    (I say worked it out so that it doesn't sound like I dreamt up the answer)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:42

    Bengals nearly lost the ball there.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:43

    Butterfingers`

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:47

    Pick.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:48

    Can't see the Bengals getting a result here. They just can't do anything against the Texans' defense.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:49

    No real production to speak of... Texans should win this.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:50

    ah, man, I've got AJ Green, and I haven't got Foster. Swapped him for Lynch.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:50

    I have Peterson and Walsh in the late game.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:51

    I've Rodgers and Nelson later... Predicting the Packers.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:52

    I've Rodgers and Nelson later... Predicting the Packers.

    I've got Manning.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:52

    I thought about that, then thought that Green Bay could well get to the Superbowl (so have played an extra game to score points in)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:53

    I thought about that, then thought that Green Bay could well get to the Superbowl (so have played an extra game to score points in)

    I reckon they'd have to beat Seattle to get to the Superbowl :-)

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 23:54

    Hi guys, I am back. Nice to see the good guys are still winning....

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:54

    I reckon they'd have to beat Seattle to get to the Superbowl :-)

    I was also thinking that the Pack only have Rogers' arm to get them there :)

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:55

    Dalton is 8/20 for 67.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:56

    I was also thinking that the Pack only have Rogers' arm to get them there :)

    Which could be a problem as time goes on. But we'll see. They're strong.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:57

    Which could be a problem as time goes on. But we'll see. They're strong.

    I've doubled up with Nelson as WR. Eggs and baskets come to mind.

  • Noelinho05/01/2013 at 23:58

    I've doubled up with Nelson as WR. Eggs and baskets come to mind.

    Well, if Rodgers scores well, it follows that Nelson will too.

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:58

    Well, if Rodgers scores well, it follows that Nelson will too.

    Exactly. Go big or go home. (Crosses fingers)

  • Jordan F105/01/2013 at 23:59

    Another FG for Hosuton. I am certain that I picked the right kicker....

  • Will^05/01/2013 at 23:59

    HOU 19-10

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:01

    Dalton having serious trouble hearing the playcalls.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:02

    B. Green-Ellis: Two receptions, -9 yards. Longest: -3

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:02

    B. Green-Ellis: Two receptions, -9 yards. Longest: -3

    Those numbers should be illegal.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:03

    B. Green-Ellis: Two receptions, -9 yards. Longest: -3

    They are awesome numbers if you are playing golf!

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:03

    Of Dalton's 10 completed passes, he has 1 pass for 45 yards, and 9 for 36...

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:04

    They are awesome numbers if you are playing golf!

    Longest drive of -3 yards? But that's backwards

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:05

    Longest drive of -3 yards? But that's backwards

    It's Monty Python-esque

    "Run Away"!

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:06

    Oooooo

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:08

    Block that punt!

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:08

    Block that punt!

    no punt

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:08

    47yarder

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:08

    no punt

    *&*^^& FG! *&*

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:09

    1 possession again.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:11

    What do the sidelines use those parabolic mics to try to hear? Their team / the opposition / other?

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:12

    *&*^^& FG! *&*

    Relax. What have the Bengals managed tonight? One pick six, and pretty much nothing else.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:13

    Relax. What have the Bengals managed tonight? One pick six, and pretty much nothing else.

    It is still too close a game for my lking. The Bengals are too close to beating the spread....

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:13

    What do the sidelines use those parabolic mics to try to hear? Their team / the opposition / other?

    They're for the broadcast.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:14

    Beating the spread is different to winning the game ;-)

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:14

    They're for the broadcast.

    Ohh ok. I was thinking they were to try to catch the playcall from the opposite sideline, even though it is hidden byt the coaches' playsheets.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:14

    Beating the spread is different to winning the game ;-)

    Not when you put your money down on the favoured team.....

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:16

    Not when you put your money down on the favoured team.....

    Ah, betting. Bookies make a profit. Therefore, betting's a mug's game ;-)

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:16

    Walters takes out the chain gang! 10 points!

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:16

    That's always my favourite play :-) I always used to do it on Madden, every play I could :-)

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:17

    I think Houston was thinking of faking that punt.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:17

    That's always my favourite play :-) I always used to do it on Madden, every play I could :-)

    Mine is the TD dive, holding the ball out so it skims the pylon and knocks it over.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:18

    Mine is the TD dive, holding the ball out so it skims the pylon and knocks it over.

    If you don't dive into the endzone, it's not a TD. #MaddenFact

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:19

    If you don't dive into the endzone, it's not a TD. #MaddenFact

    I often spin the last 10 yards.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:19

    A sak, fumble and TD would be nice right about now....

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:20

    I often spin the last 10 yards.

    Why don't you try showboating the last 10 yeards and see the ball get scripped out of you hands like that one guy had in real life - twice....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:21

    ...only when I'm soo free from trouble - I seem to break the coverage enough and then off to the races.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:22

    ...only when I'm soo free from trouble - I seem to break the coverage enough and then off to the races.

    Wish I could ever get that free, but then I play Brady-style :-)

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:23

    Dalton didn't glance back, so had no clue the defender was coming back at him.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:23

    Wish I could ever get that free, but then I play Brady-style :-)

    Montanna / Young style. back 5 yards, throw 15 yards. repeat until game over.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:23

    Sure that music in the stadium just then during the TO was actually on a Madden recently.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:24

    Montanna / Young style. back 5 yards, throw 15 yards. repeat until game over.

    I'm almost always in the hurry-up offence - and regularly put heftypoints-0.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:25

    Montanna / Young style. back 5 yards, throw 15 yards. repeat until game over.

    I throw screens all the time. Screens, curls and crossings. Rarely anything else, runs aside. Sometimes go for an empty backfield, ready the coverage and take an easy vertical route.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:26

    I have all my audibles, presnap adjusts and change of routes so that I find the miss-match, then give him a simple streak to beat the coverage, unless i'm running to the outside.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:26

    So, it's either Houston @ New England, or Cincinnati steal it and travel to Denver.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:27

    I have all my audibles, presnap adjusts and change of routes so that I find the miss-match, then give him a simple streak to beat the coverage, unless i'm running to the outside.

    I never audible. I can always find something :-) But play action always = sack. Play action is broken in Madden 10.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:28

    One yard shorter and that's a TD.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:28

    I never audible. I can always find something :-) But play action always = sack. Play action is broken in Madden 10.

    They take too long to develop.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:29

    One yard shorter and that's a TD.

    Makes a change on the overthrows of earlier in the game.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:29

    They take too long to develop.

    It's more that the o-line crumbles and the pass option hasn't come up by the time the QB is sacked. He's always sacked after about 0.5 secs.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:29

    That was an awful play on 4th down. Didn't give the receiver any hope of getting to the marker.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:30

    It's more that the o-line crumbles and the pass option hasn't come up by the time the QB is sacked. He's always sacked after about 0.5 secs.

    Get a real o line then. You need men, not baby girls....

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:30

    Get a real o line then. You need men, not baby girls....

    No, the game's just broken for play action.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:31

    Turns out you can switch Fantasy players until the start of the game they play in.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:31

    Frig, I hired a Sumo wrester to be my centre. I get 5 yards just by using him on 3 and 3's.....

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:32

    That's the game.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 00:34

    That's the game.

    Not quite over yet...

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:34

    There is the 2minute warning...

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:37

    It was done :-)

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:38

    No passing TDs in the game.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:39

    I can see the next game being rather different

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:39

    I won't be around for the late game - have to be running things at church tomorrow morning.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:40

    Me either, sleep is still needed, so I'm glad tomorrows 2 are in the earlier slots.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 00:43

    Me either, sleep is still needed, so I'm glad tomorrows 2 are in the earlier slots.

    I won't be around for the early game tomorrow, will be in about half an hour into the second.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:45

    I won't be around for the early game tomorrow, will be in about half an hour into the second.

    Coolcool. I'll man the fort. At least you can catch the second. That looks like the game of the round.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 00:53

    Turns out the Bengals' D earned one more points than the Texans in that one.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 01:04

    Cheese please, for the win.....!

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 01:41

    Nice, 2nd & 1 for the pack, 0.- 3 for the Good guys....

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 01:44

    Wow. Looks like GB won a challenge and got a 9 yard in for a TD on the next play. 6 - 3 GB.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 01:45

    XPT good. 7 - 3 GB.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 02:10

    3rd and 5 from the MINN 34 yard line and GB throws a 32 yard pass awesome!

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 02:11

    1st and Goal from the 2 and GB gets a FG.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 02:23

    TD GB!!! (16 - 3 GB.)

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 02:23

    X PT is good. 17 - 3 GB.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 02:58

    24 - 3 GB.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 03:08

    Minn Fumbles the ball at BG 35. it is recovered by GB.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 03:51

    Vikings just dropped a 50 yard bomb on GB for a TD. score now 10 - 24 GB with 3:39 in the game....

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 04:05

    Final Score, 24 GB - 10 Minn.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 18:10

    The IND-BAL crowd singing the 7 Nation Army loop for ~5mins before KO - not just English football fans then.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 18:12

    Hmmm, I wonder why I am awatching this game. Nobody's in my Fantasy League, and I need to get some things done around the house...

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 18:17

    I'm listening to Colts radio (brilliantly biassed) while I make dinner. They keep referring to Luck as Andy which is really off-putting as I'm not used to it.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 18:17

    Rice Fumble? Colts ball?

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 18:19

    Rice Fumble? Colts ball?

    The Game Tracker has yet to be updated from the 1-10 at the 15. Oh, it just got called a fumble....

    I'm listening to Colts radio (brilliantly biassed) while I make dinner. They keep referring to Luck as Andy which is really off-putting as I'm not used to it.

    Hmmm, does that cost you any money?

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 18:27

    Sounds like Luck is clicking on this one.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 18:30

    Sounds like Luck is clicking on this one.

    You where saying?

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 18:38

    You where saying?

    *coughs*

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 18:39

    You where saying?

    Well, at least he did not get stripped of the ball this time around....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 18:40

    How is this happening, the live radio is being beaten by GameCentre?

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 18:41

    YOu should see how long the it takes for the plays to be updated on the game tracker.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 18:43

    Will, lucky for us this is not the NHL, both of us would have been in the Sin Bin for 2 minute minors for "Highshticking".... :p

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 18:55

    :) This Ray Lewis guy looks long in the tooth. He should consider hanging it up some day soon.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 19:42

    Ravens 10-6 at the half.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 19:48

    3rd Quarter action now...

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 19:51

    Wow what a play for the Ravens! 50 yard bomb on 3 - 19 at their own 9 yard line!

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 19:52

    They do love converting from 3rd-&-long this season

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 19:54

    A little bit too much. I wonder what are they going to do on 4-19? [joke]

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 19:54

    A little bit too much. I wonder what are they going to do on 4-19? [joke]

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 19:55

    Probs call Flacco for a QB-sneak

    funny, I called that too, but changed my mind....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 20:00

    Useless snap, no chance.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 20:00

    Tough luck for Andy .... :p

    Zing!

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 20:26

    Ravens 17-9 after the 3rd.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 20:30

    Uhoh Ravens, another Ray Rice fumble.

    @ESPNStatsInfo: Ray Rice: 2 fumbles today. He had only 1 fumble(which the Ravens recovered) in regular season

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 20:32

    Uhoh Ravens, another Ray Rice fumble.

    No amount of Luck can recover a win from all these fumbles.....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 20:32

    And now they're out of Luck with that missed FG.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 20:33

    And now they're out of Luck with that missed FG.

    This is getting way too easy....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 20:34

    We're Luck-y, the Colts play is why it's easy.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 20:37

    3rd and 1 and the Ravens call a timeout? like, do not they have a RB they can hand off to?

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 20:39

    That guy managed not to fumble.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 20:39

    3rd and 1 and the Ravens call a timeout? like, do not they have a RB they can hand off to?

    Apparently not....

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 20:39

    That guy managed not to fumble.

    Luck of the draw, I guess....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 20:40

    TD Ravens. Colts look to be (as well as out of Luck) out of time.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 20:44

    Flacco now topping the Fantasy-QB-scoring

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 20:49

    Flacco now topping the Fantasy-QB-scoring

    Proff that a good QB needs a decent O-Line instead of Luck? ;p

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 20:52

    Come on Colts, you have Luck on your side.... :p

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 20:54

    15 points, 06:35... Tough ask.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 20:56

    15 points, 06:35... Tough ask.

    1 TD, 1 x pt, an offside kick that the Colts recover, another TD and a 2 pointer.... all for a tie game... and there still might be time on the clock.....

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:00

    INT Ravens, and that the game - apparently you need more than a name on your jersey to have Luck on your team....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:00

    Not with that pick...

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:10

    Good call Colts going on 4th down. It was their last shot of a chance of winning this game....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:11

    Can't fault them there either

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:12

    They just need more Luck, does Andy have a brother?

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:13

    They just need more Luck, does Andy have a brother?

    If he's anything like the Colts last QB's brother, he'll not be as good.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:34

    Cool, I am currently 1st in the NFL Sidepodcast Group, and I an nobody in the last game....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:35

    I've only had 2 play so far, with only 1 more in the next game, hence languishing down the bottom.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:37

    I feel dirty. I have picked the Skins QB, RB and def in this game. Does this make me a awful Cowboys fan?

    You could hardly pick Cowboys players. It is the Cowboys fault the Redskins made the playoffs

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:38

    I picked players from teams that would progress / ones that will likely win next week. I've only got Marshawn Lynch left today, hoping he gets a lot of touches.

  • Kai06/01/2013 at 21:44

    Scoops of each?

    Both is usually a good answer when it comes to ice cream.

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 21:44

    Scoops of each?

    Did that before. Didn't work too well.

    I think it is only fair I go with Will's choice since he got in first

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:45

    Hello hello

    Greetings Kai.

    So it's not all sunshine and roses between these teams, huh?

    Between the NFL teams or the SPC teams?

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:45

    I think it is only fair I go with Will's choice since he got in first

    Mint is never a bad choice :) Or just compromise and have 2 mints and 1 cherry.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:46

    Did that before. Didn't work too well.

    Do Tell, Shaggy (From Scooby Doo)

  • Kai06/01/2013 at 21:46

    Between the NFL teams or the SPC teams?

    I got to the game as they were shoving each other around. NFL.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:47

    RG3 is the reason I'm not up on the Seahawks' D.

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 21:48

    Mint is never a bad choice :) Or just compromise and have 2 mints and 1 cherry.

    Interesting idea. Work on the basis that there must be a ratio that works so try every ratio until I find the right one. I now have mint choc in front of me though so I am not getting back up

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 21:51

    Hi everyone

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:51

    Hi everyone

    Grfeetings.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:51

    Hi everyone

    Evening there. Good timing.

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 21:51

    Seahawks D not helping my score

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 21:51

    Evening there. Good timing.

    Just caught the TD :-)

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 21:52

    How was the first game?

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:52

    Qiuck 6 for the skins....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:52

    Saving the best game of the w/e for last :)

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:52

    How was the first game?

    Terrible. Will^ and I had a field day macking bad puns about Luck. Kai would have loved it...

  • Kai06/01/2013 at 21:53

    How was the first game?

    I thought it was boring, but I had other stuff I was getting done at the same time, so maybe it was me.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 21:53

    85 offensive plays from the Colts, and only 9 points? Wow.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:54

    Terrible. Will^ and I had a field day macking bad puns about Luck. Kai would have loved it...

    They were awful, so the game was clearly worse.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:54

    I thought it was boring, but I had other stuff I was getting done at the same time, so maybe it was me.

    You where Luck-er than the Colts, Kai......

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 21:57

    That sack has to help my score...

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 21:58

    Come on you 'Hawks.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 22:03

    Move those sticks, skins!

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:06

    Seahawks' D getting taken to pieces somewhat.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:06

    Griffin fell really awkwardly there.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:07

    At least he didn't take the hit.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:07

    Reckon they might go out of shotgun more if he's like that.

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 22:07

    Seahawks' D getting taken to pieces somewhat.

    They are determined to cost me points

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:08

    That was a real cheap shot.

  • Kai06/01/2013 at 22:08

    Whoa, what in the hell was that hit on RGIII all about?

    Unnecessary, yes.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:08

    They are determined to cost me points

    You might be looking at negative points

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:10

    If they can knock him out of the game and only cost them a few yards here and there, then that is one tactic, a dirty one that is.

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 22:10

    Whoa, what in the hell was that hit on RGIII all about?

    It was the fault of the other player who shoved RG3 into the player who hit him. He was stumbling after contact with another player

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:12

    RG3 heading to the locker-room. Bet he hopes the D doesn't do too good a job.

  • Kai06/01/2013 at 22:14

    The USS Enterprise just flew by.

    Either that or the camera close to the field.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 22:14

    hey, another sack for the skins!

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:15

    Some decent YAC on that play.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:15

    Esp on the underthrow

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 22:20

    The Hawks QB must hav been lucky on that last play.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:21

    he was in

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:21

    good on the line judge for overruling. It was a clear catch the first time you saw it.

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 22:28

    Gook work guys, we still have an 11 point lead...

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 22:29

    Seahawks D has scored one point for me

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:31

    Seahawks D has scored one point for me

    Broncos have scored none for me ;-)

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 22:31

    Seahawks D has scored one point for me

    Skins D currently sit on 9. was 12.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:37

    Woohoo. Lynch is up to 1pt on the day.

  • Kai06/01/2013 at 22:37

    Seahawks D has scored one point for me

    I picked them, too.

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 22:38

    I picked them, too.

    I am looking for them and Marshawn Lynch to rescue my score

  • Kai06/01/2013 at 22:39

    I am looking for them and Marshawn Lynch to rescue my score

    he just may do that...

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:39

    That counts as a run, yes?

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 22:39

    he just may do that...

    Recovering a fumble is points

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 22:40

    darn D does not get points for making a fumble....

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:40

    ...It should do

  • Jordan F106/01/2013 at 22:41

    ...It should do

    looks like one lousy pt. up to 10 now...

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:41

    That'll be 1pt for the sack, and only the recovery scores 2.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:42

    That'll be 1pt for the sack, and only the recovery scores 2.

    Fumble is worthless if not recovered.

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 22:42

    Looks like it may not be a one sided game after all

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:43

    That was a brilliant running pickup by Lynch, btw

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:43

    Fumble is worthless if not recovered.

    Yup. So a D has to come away with it in order to score.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:44

    That was a brilliant running pickup by Lynch, btw

    Btw - that Lynch pickup doesn't count for stats.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:44

    Yup. So a D has to come away with it in order to score.

    Exactly. So it's not as daft as it might seem at first look.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:44

    Btw - that Lynch pickup doesn't count for stats.

    Yeah, but who cares about stats? ;-)

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 22:45

    Btw - that Lynch pickup doesn't count for stats.

    Doesn't seem to count for fantasy points either. He is still showing as only having 1 point

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:45

    Seattle have an injured kicker?

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:46

    Yeah, but who cares about stats? ;-)

    When the stats dictate the points, then a lot of us.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:47

    That was never going to end well. Double coverage all over it.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:47

    He just didn't see the safety.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:57

    Punter to kick?

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:57

    Kicker is #4

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:57

    Punter's out

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:57

    Kicker's practicing.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:57

    Kicker to kick

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:58

    Punter is the holder as well

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 22:58

    So new kicker and new holder or not

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 22:58

    FG good

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 22:58

    Original kicker

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 22:59

    10 minutes in I would never have believed that there would only be one point in it at half time

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 23:04

    10 minutes in I would never have believed that there would only be one point in it at half time

    Seattle D definitely took a while to settle, Wilson took a while to get going, I'd say Seattle are on top at the moment though.

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 23:06

    Seattle D definitely took a while to settle, Wilson took a while to get going, I'd say Seattle are on top at the moment though.

    It looks that way and they get the first possession of the second half. Washington could be 6 points down before they get the ball

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 23:07

    No chance of me going to bed in the middle of this one :)

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 23:11

    I'm staying up until it's over.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 23:12

    Did someone just say they are worried RGIII might be hurt? #obvious

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 23:13

    How did Lynch even get past the line of scrimmage there? Good cover from Wilson!

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 23:17

    Might like Lynch to carry it in please.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 23:17

    Wow. Big turnover.

  • Steven Roy06/01/2013 at 23:18

    Wow. Big turnover.

    That is huge

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 23:19

    That is huge

    Wow. Big play. Now watch RG£ under pressure inside his 5.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 23:33

    That was like the parting of the red sea.

  • Will^06/01/2013 at 23:33

    Nice run, even if he missed the read before

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 23:41

    Can't see Washington winning this now.

  • Noelinho06/01/2013 at 23:49

    Griffin limped for 9 yards.

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:00

    Nice blocking on that play!!

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:00

    QB blocking for the TD. I knew it was going to take something odd to get another score in this game

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:02

    Marshawn Lynch is up to 16 points. My highest scoring player of the weekend

  • Noelinho07/01/2013 at 00:03

    It's a TD game.

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:03

    Made the two point conversion

  • Noelinho07/01/2013 at 00:03

    Can you really see Washington scoring though? Griffin's too hurt.

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:03

    Marshawn Lynch is up to 16 points. My highest scoring player of the weekend

    He's seriously helped my tally as well.

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:04

    Momentum with Seattle.

  • Noelinho07/01/2013 at 00:06

    That sack was coming. Should have thrown it the first time.

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:07

    Bad sack for RG3

  • Noelinho07/01/2013 at 00:07

    Seattle ball

  • Noelinho07/01/2013 at 00:07

    Game over.

  • Noelinho07/01/2013 at 00:07

    There really wasn't much point having him in the game.

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:07

    RG3 is outta there. Shame.

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:08

    His knee shouldn't bend that way

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:16

    Griffin back out. That has to be a bad idea

  • Noelinho07/01/2013 at 00:17

    Griffin back out. That has to be a bad idea

    Not on the field.

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:17

    From Twitter: RG3 can’t walk, run, or throw right now. He’s basically Mark Sanchez

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:18

    I've had to get some stuff done for tomorrow. Should I check back with the game?

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:19

    I've had to get some stuff done for tomorrow. Should I check back with the game?

    It's as good as over. Seahawks are 10 points up and RG3 is out injured

  • Noelinho07/01/2013 at 00:19

    And turnover on downs too

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:20

    Big hit on Cousins. Ouch

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:20

    Good news is Marshawn Lynch has scored us 16 points

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:20

    It's as good as over. Seahawks are 10 points up and RG3 is out injured

    boo. :(

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:20

    Good news is Marshawn Lynch has scored us 16 points

    bad news is I had RG3.

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:21

    Good news is Marshawn Lynch has scored us 16 points

    And now they'll be running down the clock on the ground

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:21

    bad news is I had RG3.

    I wentt with Aaron Rogers at QB and he scored 15

  • Journeyer07/01/2013 at 00:24

    Morning all. What did I miss?

    I went with Aaron Rogers at QB and he scored 15

    Me too. Doing surprisingly well in the league, actually.

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:29

    I went with Aaron Rogers at QB and he scored 15

    So far I am scoring 24 points in this game. Should move up a little

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:30

    I've only got 3 players playing this weekend. Will remain midtable.

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:32

    So far I am scoring 24 points in this game. Should move up a little

    I've never done a fantasy league before. My first instinct was to go with Rodgers but I wanted to support RG3. Oh well. I don't have many points, but I'll just play along and see what happens. When can we pick for round 2?

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:32

    I think it might open soon after the final whistle.

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:33

    I've never done a fantasy league before. My first instinct was to go with Rodgers but I wanted to support RG3. Oh well. I don't have many points, but I'll just play along and see what happens. When can we pick for round 2?

    No reason for them to delay long. Tonight or tomorrow at the latest I expect

  • Noelinho07/01/2013 at 00:34

    Seattle to beat Atlanta.

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:34

    No reason for them to delay long. Tonight or tomorrow at the latest I expect

    Are we locked in or can we switch our players as we go?

  • Noelinho07/01/2013 at 00:34

    Are we locked in or can we switch our players as we go?

    can switch, but you lose your multipier

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:35

    Are we locked in or can we switch our players as we go?

    We can switch every week. Under your choices there is a row of slots for each round of the playoffs but if you keep a player he scores double points next week and triple in the third week you have him

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:35

    can switch, but you lose your multipier

    every switch you make will lessen your overall points?

    So pick wisely?

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:36

    We can switch every week. Under your choices there is a row of slots for each round of the playoffs but if you keep a player he scores double points next week and triple in the third week you have him

    ah, ok. Thanks.

    We can switch every week. Under your choices there is a row of slots for each round of the playoffs but if you keep a player he scores double points next week and triple in the third week you have him

    Nice! So basically as long as I'm confident they'll keep winning I can keep them.

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 00:38

    Nice! So basically as long as I'm confident they'll keep winning I can keep them.

    And the problem is people who get lucky week 1 could be impossible to beat

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:38

    Nice! So basically as long as I'm confident they'll keep winning I can keep them.

    Yup, although best to switch early (if they're going to lose), so you can get the multipliers later

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:38

    Nice! So basically as long as I'm confident they'll keep winning I can keep them.

    But we get to choose new players for teams that are out now, like I choose another QB instead of RG3.

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:39

    But we get to choose new players for teams that are out now, like I choose another QB instead of RG3.

    You can have a whole different team each week, regardless of who gets knocked out (etc), but then of course you don't take advantage of the multipliers.

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:40

    You can have a whole different team each week, regardless of who gets knocked out (etc), but then of course you don't take advantage of the multipliers.

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:42

    ew. Just saw replay of RG3's knee. *rubbing my own knee out of sympathy*

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:42

    The block by Wilson was a highlight for me

  • Journeyer07/01/2013 at 00:45

    ew. Just saw replay of RG3's knee. *rubbing my own knee out of sympathy*

    They pushed that knee way too hard. But assuming it'll make a complete recovery, he will be a force to be reckoned with next year.

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:46

    They pushed that knee way too hard. But assuming it'll make a complete recovery, he will be a force to be reckoned with next year.

    Yes. And now he has plenty of time to rehab.

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 00:47

    Yes. And now he has plenty of time to rehab.

    An extra few weeks than he might've had. But no Pro Bowl for him then.

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:47

    An extra few weeks than he might've had. But no Pro Bowl for him then.

    Amazing he's a rookie.

  • Kai07/01/2013 at 00:50

    BTW, thanks for the post-season post, Will.

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 01:01

    Just checked the best roster tab on the fantasy game. Maximum score available this weekend was 144

  • Will^07/01/2013 at 01:08

    BTW, thanks for the post-season post, Will.

    You're welcome. I take that the lack of comments means that no-one had any objections ;)

  • Steven Roy07/01/2013 at 21:33

    You can now choose new selections for next weekend's round of the fantasy competition
