    i bet when people see the RAVENS on their schedule they start licking their chops!!!!!

    I know i need to be more POSITIVE however it is very hard when u start a game all happy and ready for fun and by the time its the end of the 1st quarter you are down by 3 scores it sure takes a lot out of you. I by no means am writing this for sympathy, simply stating how i feel. I know i was allowed back in GRINDERS and needed to get better and take a loss better, well i feel i am taking losses better however i don't know why but i seem to be regressing in my game play. I play more now than I have ever played. I just seem to turn the ball over every time i am driving really well. I wish I could figure out what I am doing wrong and change it. I so love this game and league and want to get a WIN.I think i am just rambling now...

    I really want people to know how much I am trying to improve, it just is not happening. I get so frustrated in my games and when I get down i usually try and work on a part of my game, then BOOM i throw a pick or fumble...i dont think anyone fumbles as much as my team...LOL

    Drew i completely understand how you feel i've lost more games than anyone in this league. Dude one thing is you gotta know your offense and plays , also get players that fit your style if you've been playing madden for a long time then you 'll know. when you play users play your game don't try to match them . if your a runner then run the damn ball. I lost alot games cause i fell into the trap. Know what would really change your team. for me I knew since madden 12 eagles needed a good qb with deep acc. and big tall wr. along with shady and rest recievers i got the offense i've dreaming about . statistically best i've ever done

    Most of all be patient these mfers are good. the thing with me is that i don't suck its just i manage to find ways to lose. I'm the toughest guy you'll beat. my records are not the story of my game.

    STAY THIRSTY MY FRIEND!!!!

    SIN,

    THANKS....this is exactly why i posted this, to get feedback like this and know i am not alone in this..
    I am a RUNNING offense so i do run a lot and usually i get into offensive trouble when i try and throw to much....i also force way to many throw and that ends in PICKS...i know i do this i just get impatient...

    I AM THIRSTY BRO FOR SURE

    Drew, let it go. Most of this league is pretty tight knit and even for as long as I've been here I'm still just scratching the surface compared to the time some of these guys have put in. At times, we're all assholes.

    Urb, I was at work all day. I texted you back, but if we can't go tonight then I'll be able to play sometime tomorrow, but I won't know exactly when. The girl's mother decided to have her Thanksgiving get-together tomorrow instead of actually on the holiday for some reason.

    I think Ive been here long enough to get a feel for the league. Its been a fun league to be in because of how active it is, and building your team. Im decent in Madden, but not great, but I still play and play to win. Sometimes however, that dont work out, and I get blown out. It already happened against Urb this season, and I took a few big losses last season. Ive never complained about any of them in terms of what my opponent was doing, but last night against Muck is different.

    He was up 28-9 on me heading into the 4th quarter. I dont mind the first score in the 4th because it can be seen as icing the game, but his next two scores are what I have problems with. Im not telling anyone to stop running their offense, but when you still keep passing at a high rate with the lead, I dont think its right. Im not saying run the ball every down, but at least attempt to kill clock. Which leads to the last score of the game,which was a run after the 2 minute running.

    That score honestly pissed me off, because he continued to run up the score. I punted the ball right after, and he starts to QB kneel, I found it hilarious. I know the rules, but apparently he didnt, and Im not gonna just let this slide easy because every one that Ive played who has gained a big lead, stops trying to score once they know the game is theirs, Muck missed that message.

    NO i am not gonna go and beat anybody up, obviously. Marco, i feel you are truly wrong when u said no one cares if people are nice or mean. i guarantee if every time i was in chat or the posts i did i was a complete disrespectful jackass i or anyone else would not last long. and if JOEY feels he needs to act like a child towards me thats his right, i was just commenting how silly it is that it seems OK and people just look the other way. my intention with what i originally said was to get some POSITIVE feedback regarding my game play and then it turns into a counseling session on how JOEY needs to gain maturity. and i WILL NEVER stoop to his level however i still will say what i feel and think its WRONG that it is overlooked how JOEY acts.

    THANKS to those who gave me feedback , especially Joker and Marco i thought we were kool and here you are sounding like you are defending JOEY, he must be your boy or something...this is the last message or any mention from me about JOEY.......
