PM Me some of your GIF codes and I'd be happy to write it up for you.

This also applies to AZ/ Grr, I know you guys can edit people's posts, so if tyty can't get around to replying, you could go into one of the old gameday threads and at least give me the code for our little baby bear friend who has a thing for legs Smile

I thought you were kidding! I thought it was a joke! I even wrote it down in my diary - Tyty had a very funny joke today. I laughed about it later that night!

My 3 Keys to the game…

1. The health of the defence…Urlacher has been getting most of the press but there are issues on all 3 levels of the D…can Conte play only weeks after dislocating his shoulder? Will Urlacher’s knee hold up in game action? Has Paea fully recovered from his ankle sprain? And even is Okoye’s knee as good as he says or as bad as Greg Schiano says?...all these questions will have a big time baring on our D as each player has a very defined set role.

2. The Oline…still an issue but for different reasons…the pass pro wasn’t bad throughout preseason but the run blocking was terrible…when you consider this group missing Carimi for a large portion of the season paved the way for over 2,000 yards it was a surprise that they struggled so badly…as much as we have added weapons on the outside I still feel we will be dedicated to the run as long as it’s effective.

3. Pass Rush…in this D pass rush will always be key…Peppers will be his usual dominant self…but we need Melton to continue to improve and become a consistent threat…we need McClellin to bring it off the edge every snap he player…we need the Okoye from last season to return as well as the rest of the defensive rotation to step up…and watch out for Idonije this season…he played all of last year banged up and against the redskins looked stronger and more explosive than he did all of last season…McClellin pushing him and at the same time giving him more rest & the opportunity to line up inside on passing downs…he should be good for 8 sacks.

Not just a roster update, this one is a complete reboot. I'm not a fan of the new career mode, just give me franchise.

I actually like the changes they made to it. I absolutely love the new draft format, I love being able to scout players throughout the year, and I like that they tell you bits about college players during the season. I don't, however, like the format of the "my actions". I like being able to simulate a game and then click on it and see how my players did in that game. Also, people talk about how players progress so much just from preseason but I haven't seen that yet. My players maybe gain one or two points per year overall.

I like the new format of the franchise mode and like you said scouting and the draft are much better but the fact you can’t use a custom roster or even an official update of the roster is pretty weak.

Yeah but after you download the first roster update you can play an exhibition with it…but when you go into career more it is still the original roster than came with the game.

I'm probably way behind the times, but I've never seen that "final countdown" jpg before. Incredible, my friends are so screwed

It’s not that good but it’s an improvement over the last few efforts.
