Playing as the 49es, with their exact real life roster.

Week 1:
Beat Carolina 19-16 in the most NFL realistic experience I've ever had with Madden. It's lowish scoring, but it wasn't the 3 and out fest you get on old Madden's in low scoring games. Instead, there was some movement of the ball by both teams, including a few big plays, but stellar red zone defense kept the score low. I didn't completely dominate time of possession like what would have happened before; there were moments when receivers were open down field but the pass rush got to the QB and forced errant throws; etc. Over all this was the funnest Madden game I've ever played.

Week 2: Got absolutely destroyed by Seattle, and it felt exactly how the Seahawks have been abusing the 49ers the last couple of years. The Seahawks were able to run the ball decently, but the real issue was Russel Wilson escaping the rush and making plays both with his legs and his arm. He ran for some 40 yards, and also threw some big time passes down field after dodging sure sacks. And of course, their defense owned my offense for most of the game. By half time it was 31-0. I managed to score some points in garbage time and brought the score to 34-17, but this was a Seahawk blow out (note: the exact same thing happened in 2016 in Seattle when these teams met: at the end of the 3rd quarter it was 30-3, but the final score was a more forgiving 37-18).


So far this game is easily the best they've made.

Playing with the Rams. All pro/Sim

In second preseason game, Gurly goes down with a serious shoulder injury. I was so upset, I restarted the game. on try 2, He goes down with a Knee injury. restarted. tuned injuries way down. On 3rd try, He tears his shoulder again!!

it's like he was meant to get hurt in. so upset.

I picked up Keith Marshall from Washington (and my high school ). was ability to run effectively with him. he has a bad rating but is so fast.

Re: How is your franchise going? Madden 18

After getting off to a surprising start the Jets have come back to earth after losing their 4th straight game putting them at 6-4. McCown has thrown 6 interceptions in during their losing streak and got injured in the last game against the Bucs. The only bright spot during the streak is halfback Matt Forte who is currently leading the league in rushing. If the Jets want to make the playoffs this year they are going to need Forte to keep carrying the load and have McCown cut down on all the mistakes he's been making.

Re: How is your franchise going? Madden 18

First post and question for everyone. Has anyone done an online owners only Franchise? Seems like the only ones I find by searching are private and/or not active. Do most leagues like this sim the games or do you watch your game? I love the sim aspect of Madden and think it would be awesome to do a Franchise like this with other user owners. It's a little too easy to dominate trades and the draft when it's just CPU controlled opponents. Thoughts?

Re: How is your franchise going? Madden 18

Started an online CFM with the Bills, and we're 1-2 after the third week of the preseason. Tyrod Taylor will be out until Week 2 of the regular season, and we signed RGIII to fill in for him who has looked decent thus far running a west coast offense.

We also brought back Jairus Byrd and moved him to SS. Also signed a couple of OL for some depth.

Loving the sliders I have posted, and man...McCoy is a beast!
