I just had a great game(!)

I was just about to give up on the game because I've been fiddling with settings more than I've been playing and haven't been able to get it right. Playing on All-Madden now with something that resembles Bill's settings, but are modified to suit me better.

I'm playing the Cowboys against the Redskins, it's 10-10 after the 3d. In the beginning of the 4th, the Redskins take the lead with a short pass that turned into a 37 yard TD pass to Moss. I come back with a field goal and then a long drive up the field to eat up as much time as I can and with 15 seconds to go, I finish them off with a 3 yard TD pass to Johnson. 20-17. Woohoo!

Of course, then they come back with a 80-yard pass down the field and tie the game with a FG. At this time I was cursing about Madden-rubberband technology. EA Bastards.

OT. I get the ball. Being pissed off, of course I throw the ball away. INT, Redskins get the ball, drive down to my side of the field and on first down(!), they attempt a 34 yard FG.

Now for the weird part.

They *miss* the FG. Let me rephrase: They *MISS* the FG!

It hit the crossbar. It's the first ever missed Fieldgoal I've seen in this year's Madden.

I get the ball back and a counterplay and 63 yard run by Julius Jones later, I win the game in OT.

Betts 24 Yards, 8 attempts
Jones 147 Yards, 22 attempts

Receiving (top 4 of each team)
Patten 4 rec. 162 yards. (Bastard. He's too fast for my starting CB)
Moss 2 rec. 47 yards
Gardner 2 rec. 42 yards
Trash 2 rec 27 yards

K. Johnson 14 rec. 142 yards.
Witten 8 rec. 99 yards.

Re: I just had a great game(!)

I had the CPU miss a field goal in a recent game. Not as pressurized a situation as this though.

The only thing here is that you had 74 plays compared to their 42 plays.

Very true. Although I do value the short passing/running game a lot. And I mean a lot. Not sure how to make that change with sliders. Any ideas?

on another note, the game after was a less dramatic, but still a good 20-17 win against the Whiners...eh..Niners. I did increase the time to 12-minute, accelerated clock.
