  1. if we were in contention

    Exactly. If we were a borderline team with a need at either DE, then I would be absolutely gung-ho for it. However I think that we need to develop our young guys, and leave ourselves some cap room. At his age and with our core, i think it would be a perfect match in 3-4 years (minus his age).

  2. Alright it is hard to be the falcons, but you have to know their problems and how to avoid them.

    Lets start with the offense. Their line sucks, so don't think about going deep. The first plays of the game I always run, just to find out what the defense will do. Most teams will stack the box against us, and throw their DE's out for a pass rush. An easy way to counter this is to put out 3-4 WR's and throw short passes. Look for slants, hooks and in/out routes. After a little bit they will try to adjust and sit in a tight zone. This is where you look for the small gaps in the middle of the field and pick up nice amount (8-15) of yards. Run sparingly just to throw the other team off.

    If they throw the DE's out, do not do play action pass. Neither of our T's are fast enough to cover that deep of a drop. Also make sure your drops are 3-4 steps. This will make the short passes hard to defend, and hard to get sacks on.

    Use Jenkins. Remember, this is a video game, and he is 6'5. If needed have him do curls and throw high passes to him.

    Defense is also hard for a couple reasons. 1. We suck. 2. We have no depth. So to counter our suckiness, I try mixing Cover 3 (unless they have a deep threat and will use him) and Man up cover 2. Using the Co-2 bring Milloy up in the box to help the run support. Have him play the run first, then target their #1 wr or open man.

    Also in this offense I need more accuracy rather than a cannon, so I stick with Redman.

  3. I think he means that last year was the first "year" for madden on the ps3. Just like 07 was for Xbox. That was their first full year and therefore first full attempt at madden cycle, instead of scrapping together what they could for the new systems. If you remember, both 06 for x and 07 for PS was horrible at best.

  4. Why don't you check this out.


    Note how it is dated November 16th? Sure they were losing a lot of money then, that is obvious.

    or this: http://www.pcworld.com/article/127906/sony..._hardware.html#

    Umm same exact story

    or this: http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/technology/200...sing_money.html

    and how about this: http://news.cnet.co.uk/gamesgear/0,39029682,49285330,00.htm

    Same as 1 and 2

    I think thats enough proof.

    The only story that warrants some attention in the third link. Even though it is dated in May, it shows some consideration. The link implies (when you research more) that while the ps3 is not quite making money on the system themselves, they are from software.

    No companies should be producing major profits 1.75 years into a 7+ year cycle. The PS3 was losing huge amounts, as your time machine posts told us. Now they are almost making money off the systems, but are making money overall. By the end of the year, they will have some huge profits and those should continue until the PS4 comes out.

  5. It may sound radical


    Losing competition is never good for the consumer. Of course Microsoft would make some money if they stole the PS brand away from Sony.

    Think of this in the long run though. Why would Sony sell their brand off now that they are not only making money, but beating the Xbox. Worldwide The PS3 is finally hitting its stride and is selling very many of their products. They have a online service (free) that is comparable to the best in the business (not free).

    You say that Sony's division has lost money...well that is obvious. You don't expect to have all of this research and development and then make money the first day, month or year.

    Another thing said that is if the PS brand fails, then Sony's blu-ray will as well. Last I checked, HD-DVD failed, and Microsoft is still kickin. Not to mention now that HD-DVD is out, there is no Hi-Def competition for Sony.

    Is this possible? Yes. Plausible, absolutely not. Microsoft would not have enough money to get rid of playstation that would benefit them in the long run. They pulled something like 44 billion out ready to hand to Yahoo. I would expect about half that just for a gaming division.

  6. true, but its also the little things. for example, this is a little thing, but a huge thing at the same time. When I turn on my 360 and check into live...I feel connected. It lets all my friends know i'm on and vice versa. and usally within a minute or so I get a game invite to a gears game (yeah people still play it) or cod4. with the ps3, I just don't got that feeling with ps3, and that pretty much sets the tone for me from here and out with the ps3. The ps3 clearly wins for me with some things, but when it comes to online, 360 is the way to go. people are just more social there. and yeah there is some kids who can be annoying....but thats what the mute button is for ;)

    Good point, I'm just too cheap (poor) to pay for live and for that matter, get a second console.

    I think the PS3 finally has these points though, except the one thing you noted first, connected. Sure you can do all the same things (get invited to play whatever game, see who is online, but I really think the whole color scheme (Bright, Vibrant colors vs. Black white and gray) make a huge difference.

  7. u get what you pay for. ps3 is pretty crappy, everyone is too quiet, and thats if you can get your bluetooth to work in the first place. ...live is great, nothing wrong with it, except for the fact its $50 a year.

    I don't quite think I get what your saying.

    BT headsets are extremely easy to connect I thought. I've done 2 with ease so far.

    Everyone too quite could be justified by the people having to buy something extra but I can't say that people with the headsets are quite.

  8. A man stumbles up to the only other patron in a bar and asks if he could buy him a drink.

    "Why of course," comes the reply.

    The first man then asks: "Where are you from?"

    "I'm from Ireland," replies the second man.

    The first man responds: "You don't say, I'm from Ireland too! Let's have another round to Ireland."

    "Of Course," replies the second man.

    Curious, the first man then asks: "Where in Ireland are you from?"

    "Dublin," comes the reply.

    "I can't believe it," says the first man. "I'm from Dublin too! Let's have another drink to Dublin."

    "Of course," replies the second man.

    Curiosity again strikes and the first man asks: "What school did you go to?"

    "Saint Mary's," replies the second man. "I graduated in '62."

    "This is unbelievable!" the first man says. "I went to Saint Mary's and I graduated in '62, too!"

    About that time in comes one of the regulars and sits down at the bar. "What's been going on?" he asks the bartender.

    "Nothing much," replies the bartender. "The O'Malley twins are drunk again."

  9. I don't think that there should be a rookie cap. However, I do believe that the Salary Cap should not be increased in such proportions that it is. Instead let a system of checks and balances equal out a rook's pay.

    If there was a fixed cap around 100 Mil.(with slight increases yearly) The pay would even out. If someone went crazy spending on their young kids, they would be in a lot of trouble finacially. The rookies aren't the problem, the whole cap is.
