This is where I'd really like to see the 'fog of war' lifted a bit.

I put a fair amount of draft capital into my DL yet my top 2 DEs have 3 sacks between them. It's obviously a bit frustrating but oh well.

What I am getting is a TON of pressure. My squad's getting pressure on 40% of the opponents drop-backs. Now if Garrett and Ngakoue are heavily responsible for that 40% then I'm pretty satisfied w/ what I'm getting from them because I believe that's been largely responsible for my defensive success.

But if that pressure's only coming on blitzes (which isn't impossible given that Anzalone, Brown and James - my MLB, Will and SS) are leading my team in sacks...well that's frustrating.

Because Clay is right in one regard - you can't scheme pressure from your down linemen. Either they get it or they don't.

Oh well - I'll have to keep plugging either way. The boys just skull-fucked Canton with a 38-12 win that ended with me taking a knee on 1st and goal so there was almost certainly even more to be had there. They scored their only TD on a 4th and 4 pass with 8 minutes left in the 4th so the game was never in doubt.

Vail's the deserving owner of the #1 spot in the league power rankings but the Cards are the clear #2 right now.

Sadly, I get to play Matt Moore at quarterback this week (I believe his name is misspelled as 'street free agent' in the sim) but it's a one-off and Fitz will be back to continue his MVP caliber season for before turning the keys over to Tannehill for the playoffs.

I tried to take Vail out, but I failed. Robert Woods fumbled the ball on Vail's 22 yard line as we were ready to kick the game winning FG. Losing 32-31. I went full Andy in the 4th, I was up by 2 scores and still lost.

I tried. Vail came from behind after Andy showed up to coach my team in the last 9 min of the game. Up 2 scores... couldnt hold on, literally, Robert Woods fumbled on Vail's 22 yard line with seconds left. 32-31 loss hurts. Im out of the playoffs right now, lost 3 games in a row, spiraling out of control.

Saw that.

Robert Woods went full Chief on that one. This team and their !@#$ing fumbles is the most absurd thing I've seen in a long time.

Vail was trailing the whole game, usually by more than one score. I figured for sure that they were headed toward their first loss. But you can't underestimate Andrew Luck's ability to .... (flashback, goes and sits in a corner for a while) ... come back.

I think I am going to look back when the season is over, and this might have broke my team. (Mahomes broke it the week before)

Denver is on a roll now with three straight wins. This one was a nail biter where we needed a little luck. But we're figuring out how to utilize our offensive tools now.

The defense is still underperforming, though. I guess they're middle of the pack, which matches my 3-3 record. My problem is that we're not making plays on defense.

It's funny how tinkering with personnel can change stuff up.

For whatever reason, JuJu just was not working as my Z receiver. Moved him over to X, promoted Davis to Z and the offense ticked up. Kirk wasn't moving the needle much out of the slot so when Samuel came back he got the immediate promotion and has been a huge addition to the passing game; averaging nearly 60 yards/gm out of the slot.

Granted I've shuffled my tendencies around each week and that's probably made a difference as well, but I do think there's an element of 'skill-sets' involved in getting your guys in the right places to succeed.

My defense hasn’t forced a single turnover yet! Pretty crazy this far into the season, especially with how well they’re performing otherwise.

Sooner and later we’re going to start getting some lucky breaks. If we can go .500 with a -6 turnover margin on the year, I think we can do some real damage once things start going our way.

Well, I guess we're better than that. We've got one interception and two forced fumbles, but we're ahead of the game because we've lost no turnovers this season. I teach my team about ball security, and they listen.

I believe Fat Andy runs this sim time management. It drive me crazy every game. Both teams burning time outs even before the 2 min warning. Then the last 2 games I've noticed if I have a lead in the 2nd half of the 3rd qtr it goes super conservative like its in Run Out Clock mode in middle of 3rd qtr. Run, Run, Run, punt. Up to that point I had been passing more.
This was an intense read. I almost punched my monitor when Cam threw his second immediately-after-a-fumble-recovery pick. Game ball goes to whoever tackled Keenan Allen in bounds on the last play. Good game.

Its 3 Division Winners
2 Wildcards

I think right now tie breakers are not handled by H2H, but by Net Points For -Against based on the rules section of the website.

On a side note, what's the protocol for replacing inactive owners?

Just have a hunch that may be an issue with the second league and would be happy to help find replacements for owners who neglect their teams.
