2019 Midseason Report

by the Owners of The 220 Reloaded

 

QUIETSTORM – REDSKINS

Redskin are still fighting to remain alive in the NFC East race. Made moves to get younger and faster on the front seven. Feel we are one year off from being serious contenders in the east.


PATSMICK – PATRIOTS

Midway through S2, the Patriots find themselves on the bye at 4-3. The bye couldn’t have come at a better time for the banged up Patriots. New England lost Brandin Cooks for 8 weeks in week 1, and then Dont’a Hightower for 8 weeks in week 3. The team managed to get to 4-3, despite the odds against them. Sensing some urgency, Mick brilliantly traded Phil Dorsett for Zach Cunningham to fill the void at MLB, a first round pick for Denver rookie WR Todd Romanowski, an upgrade on Dorsett, and then flipped 4 year back up QB Jimmy Garropolo for a first and 5th. This helped the Patriots plug up the immediate leaks while not sacrificing much of anything toward their future. Coming off the bye in week 9 with a healthy Brandin Cooks, and a favorable schedule over the next 4 weeks, the Patriots look to return to the top of the AFC East.


CONCEPTKING – BENGALS

I think the bengals have taken a step forward this year. Sitting at 4-3 with a key win and 2-0 in my division with a statement win against the ravens early in the season. I’ve had the opportunity to build my team how I want to and it’s paying off. If We can get more consistent on run defense and stable qb play I think we can make the playoffs


FEDZ – PACKERS

Green Bay is on their way.  Packers have played solid defense through the first half the season while limiting their turnovers. Each game has been a battle but the defense is what has been saving the packers. With a 3 headed WR corp its tough to stop the packer offense. We have 4 guys on offense that can score at will.

With that said, we look forward to the second half of the season. Gotta tweak the defense as the the new patch made offense all powerful again. Its time to buckle down and get prepared for the playoffs.


VD – BILLS

The water in Buffalo NY has a 10% proof.After last game it is apparent that Bills are the first team to likely bring the infamous butt-fumble to EA. Think EA can handle it?

Blame the coach, VD, which my sources have identified stands for Vito Dung. Back to you Commish..

 

GERONIMO – EAGLES

The acquisition of WR D.Hopkins was a commitment to get C.Wentz the best tools around him to help his development at QB. Wentz battled a serious shoulder injury but returned a week early showing how tough he is. Overall he has played better this season compared to last year and the team hopes to continue see him grow in one of the better QBs in the league. At the age of 24 and in his second year the pressure is on for him to show what type of leader he can be.

D.Hopkins leads the league in most WR categories and combines with K.Allen and Z.Ertz to be the best 1-2-3 punch at WR/TE in the league.

The trade of OT B.Brooks made room for our 3rd round draft pick at RT who has a lot of upside with his size and strength. He just needs to improve in his technique so the FA pick up M.Schofield has been a nice addition while the rookie improves.

The HB position has 4 capable guys who all excel at different things. Ex Redskin R. Kelly has been getting more playtime but the youngest of the group, Mack, has been the most consistent of the bunch and has been rewarded with the most carries so far.

Defensively the unit is playing well, ranking in the top 3 in total defense. The trade for the Honey Badger has been well worth it. He is a super versatile player who can play any position in the secondary and has elite ball-hawking skills.

The team has had some injuries at DL, notably losing DT T.Jernigan for an extended period and placed on IR. But this injury has allowed us to play our 2nd round draft pick DT M.Akins. He was buried behind a very deep DL group but now has a chance to show the coaching staff what he can do.

DE D.Barnett looks good in second year of play coming off an injury shortened season last year. DE D.Ford has played well and gotten after the QB in his first year as a starter. The underrated CB tandem of S.Jones and R.Darby continue to grow and both hope to become elite corners sooner than later.

There has been ongoing changes at the safety position opposite Mathieu. So far there has been a rotation of guys (M. Jenkins, Hall, and CB convert J.Joseph)…. Seems as if the best combination has been Jenkins and Mathieu but the decision who plays could be game by game depending on the opponent.

Overall, playing a challenging first place schedule while being in the best division in the 220 is tough. Sitting at 5-2 and staying in first place will be a challenge considering the non-forgiving schedule ahead with the Saints, Packers, Panthers, and Texans on the horizon. Not to mention we haven’t played the Cowboys yet and still have one more game vs the Redskins and Giants. Every week will be test of our teams ability to be a playoff contender and win the NFC East.

T220R SEASON II | LEAGUE OFFICE ADDRESS

THE 220 RELOADED

MADDEN FOOTBALL LEAGUE

November 2, 2017

 

Dear Owners,

I would first like to take this time to thank all of you for another great season and encourage you all to stay as active and positive as possible.  As we continue throughout this cycle the league office will do its best to provide a fair league that will be enjoyable and competitive for all 32 owners.

With that we had requested some feedback of ideas to discuss during the off-season and I appreciate those who did send some in.  It was interesting to see how some of the feedback was the same from a few of you.  I will highlight each item below, show a rule that applies if possible and the decision made.

 

DL Line Movement – Many have complained about the excessive left to right movement of some owners defensive lines. It was suggested that we do away with these shifts.

RULE APPLIED:

DECISION MADE: We will not add an additional rule.  We will be heavily enforcing excessive line movement.

 

Play-Call Diversity – It was suggested that we enforce minimum Requirements for pass/run attempts and limits on screens per games.

RULE APPLIED:

DECISION MADE: We will not add an additional rule. We ask that owners make sure they are calling plays in a balanced way to avoid having to add limitations in the future.

 

Player Movement – How many players can be moved at a time

RULE APPLIED:

DECISION MADE: We will not change this rule.

 


TRADE COMMITTEE:

The Trade Committee has been expanded.  We have added two additional owners and we have separated the conversation into it’s own chat.  The committee now consists of:

  • Windy
  • Fedz
  • 55
  • Krulmichael
  • Smilez

 

That is all I have for now.  We ask that all owner read the rules of our league and provide feedback at any time.  Please do not wait to make comments on something that is bothering as that may cause negative reactions and conversations that are detrimental to our league.  Thank you and enjoy SEASON II…

FEDZ POWER RANKINGS WEEK 8

The FEDZ POWER RANKINGS
Power rankings week 8

*Side note, you don’t like em, do your own !

1. Chiefs – First time ever at number 1 on my rankings….gotta since he is undefeated. Why is this happening, well according to DL , giving up 8 pts per game on defense. Number 1 defense will do that for you. Will he get that elusive 2nd ring though?

2. Bucs – hmmm ….He is doing something right, but can he get through the playoffs, still a dead wolf until he gets that ring. But as of now he is killing the league with a 7-0 record. His defense is giving him the wins. But again can he make the bowl or is he just a regular season champ

3. Bills – Surprise here….what’s going on? Well looking at DL it seems like he just out scores everyone with 32 points per game on offense. Rushing for 165 a game… that will give anyone wins…can he continue this pace in the playoffs ?

4. Giants- ALNANO is BACK! Woa …another shocker in the rankings….what is going on in season 4? Well, the Giants are hot and ready to make some noise in the playoffs. According to DL it’s his pass defense, 2nd overall. He is only giving up 152 yards per game. Defense wins championships, is this ALNANOS year?

5. Cards – yet again another surprise, there have been some grumblings about PA-Munkey going on…but whatever he is doing it is working. Is this the year that KN DOES not win the west? I think so….SM could sneak up on some people in the playoffs. Gonna be fun for sure.

6. Colts – Could be higher and probably should be higher since he is the defending champ but with all these shockers happening I simply had to bump him. He is still good, he has a decent record and again should be the favorite in the playoffs.

7. Fins – another shocker? Or no? 5-2 record is not bad but the second half of the season will show if he is a pretender or contender.

8. Bengals – With 31 points per game average he should not have as many losses…but giving up 24 a game is killing him. So he needs offense to win games and in this madden that’s a bad formula. Either way, I think he can make some noise in the playoffs.

I could put more teams but figure a top 8 is good enough. Let’s do a bottom feeder here for a quick second

GAME OF THE WEEK – Pack vs Vikes — Winner of this game wins the NFC NORTH. (Yes Windy winner of this game wins it)

Get ya game up , whats up with you guys?
Browns ( 1-6 )
Falcons ( 2-6 )
Hawks ( 2-6 )
Broncos ( 2-6 )
Pats ( 0-8 )

FEDZNAKEZ POWER RANKINGS | S04W01

Note: Published late due to Commissioner brain freeze

These are going to be short but figured we needed a preseason power rankings.  Short one liners, quick and easy :

  1. Colts: Defending champs … great offensive line and obviously can play since he won the super bowl against knight. Can he repeat?
  2. Rams: Blah…this guy…how does he do it ? Well making back to back super bowls is pretty good so I gotta put him here in number 2…which fits him perfectly….#2. He will not get to the Super Bowl this year.
  3. Chiefs: Lost to colts but had a good record last season….did he improve his team? Does it matter?
  4. Vikes: Good record made a decent run in the playoffs….is this his year to make super bowl?
  5. Bucs: Choke artist of the year, #slowgate killed his chances at winning it all. Dead wolf
  6. Jags: Made the playoffs, was a contender…can he beat the colts and chiefs?
    #franchise
  7. Niners: Has a decent team now, can he continue the trend and get better?
  8. Lions: I dunno , this guy….he seems trashy but starts off 5-0 …can he maintain his streak. Space ghost will be back again this year I’m sure.
  9. Saints: Made a playoff run….snuck up on people, now the test is can he do it again knowing people will no longer take him lightly?
  10. Packers: I can put myself here, right?
  11. Bengals: Always playoff bound, are the ready to make a run at the title?
  12. Bears: Can beat anyone and can lose to anyone….can he win the North this season?
  13. Panthers: Can someone please stop BB from winning another division title? Panthers can…right?
  14. Steelers: WR speed cheese please…oops I dropped my wr, can I get him back.
  15. Cowboys: He beat me so he should be higher but with that team he should always be in the playoffs and is not……

This could all change of course. So stay tuned as we will update these in week 10 or 11. Depends when I have more time. Enjoy…..

KNIGHTNOLES NOTES II

REVISITING THE SEASON 3 STORYLINES

  • AFC EAST
    • PROJECTED: Bills, Patriots, Dolphins, Jets
    • FINISHED: Jets, Bills, Dolphins, Patriots
      Gordow took over the division, Horne is still finding his stride while dahook and Mick struggled this season. This division will probably be turned upside down next season.
  • AFC WEST
    • PROJECTED: Chiefs, Chargers, Raiders, Broncos
    • FINISHED: Chiefs, Chargers, Broncos, Raiders
      Primo and his cheap, stat padding game took over the #1 spot in the AFC. Money Matt ended the season on a 6 game losing streak, allegedly to a broke middle finger. Gero is blastin foolz in chat while Kaz is being busy.
  • AFC NORTH
    • PROJECTED: Ravens, Bengals, Browns, Steelers
    • FINISHED: Bengals, Steelers, Browns, Ravens
      Scro showed he wasn’t fake news. Shayn found his groove, while Kro did decent in his first 220 season. Stone Cold was just downright disappointing.

 

  • AFC SOUTH
    • PROJECTED: Colts, Jaguars, Texans, Titans
    • FINISHED: Colts (new ownership), Jaguars, Texans, Titans
      Projected this one right on point, and we saw whatever his name was booted from the CFM. Smitty has walked into a gold mine and just has to go ball, Brye is good enough to make a run. Gangsta and Bigg finished with respectable records as the whole division was .500 or better.
  • NFC EAST
    • PROJECTED: Cowboys, Giants, Eagles, Redskins
    • FINISHED: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins
      A pretty weak division which saw the Eagles change owners and all they need to do was win one game but they skidded on a 5 game losing streak to end the year and Dallas took the playoff spot. Al finished 6-10 and Skins went 4-12.
  • NFC NORTH
    • PROJECTED: Vikings, Lions, Packers, Bears
    • FINISHED: Vikings, Packers, Lions, Bears
      Darden and Co. control the North and have put a stranglehold on the rest of the division as they play for second place. Another division where everyone is .500 besides the Vikings at 11-5.

 

  • NFC WEST
    • PROJECTED: Rams, Cardinals, Niners, Seahawks
    • FINISHED: Rams, Niners, Seahawks, Cardinals
      Rams ended as the #2 team in the NFC, while Realist won 7 in a row to get into the playoffs and something telling me that he wouldn’t make the playoffs with stuff happening around him. Seahawks went 5-11 while SM went 4-12 and playing at the last possible moment every advance.

 

  • NFC SOUTH
    • PROJECTED: Buccaneers, Saints, Panthers, Falcons
    • FINISHED: Buccaneers, Saints, Panthers, Falcons
      BB had a superb season as he locked up the #1 team in the NFC. Blake and the Saints came on strong to get into the playoffs while epi finished 8-8 and Rhude struggles and crawled to a 3-13 year.

FEDZNAKEZ POWER RANKINGS | Week 16

The FEDZ POWER RANKINGS
Power rankings week 16

This is being written with games still need to be played in week 16.  Two things I want to do in this small short report, MY OWN power rankings and MY OWN sim rankings. Sim is a weird term; it means one thing to one and something totally different to 31 other people. So these are my thoughts only and what I think sim is. So take it with a grain of salt, make your own if you like, either way, love’em or hate’em I’m gonna rank the TOP 6 sim players in my eyes. But first, The Power Rankings:

1. Bucs: It’s his to lose, I am in the minority on BB’s offense. Spam the RB …why not ….give the ball to your best guy …but his offense is deadly enough …will he choke in the playoffs ? Who knows but he is number 1 as of now

2. Chiefs: I never give this guy no love,( fag ) but I guess his record makes me do it this time around. I haven’t played him in a while but his record speaks for itself. He is winning games and getting ready for that SB run. Can he win 2 in one cycle in 220?

3. Vikes: Even though he is on a slight skid …..I think he is still on top. Tough defense with a good run game he will make the SB or be one and done.

4. Rams: Mr. control the safety himself comes out as the big head everyone loves to hate. Why is it that way? Who knows….but his record speaks for itself and he is the defending chump. Can he make a run? Doubt it ……but he gets lucky so who knows.

5. Colts: Hmmmmm tough one…. new owner but record is still decent. Lets see what happens once the playoffs start. (Never played him so I am going off nothing at all)

6. Bengals: Played him once a while back, at 9 wins so far seems to be a lock for playoffs…. can he get past primo? That will be the key. You can do it!

7. Jags: Never played him …seems decent with that record….can he make noise in the playoffs? Again primo is the guy to beat…….

8. Eagles: Sliding all the way down with a new Coach…. see what I did there…. oh oh will he choke it all away.

9. 49ers: Sneaking up on people. He has always been decent but now his team is set and ready to make noise in the playoffs. Its either one and done or SB winner …yup SB winner.

10. It’s tough for this one …Jets or Chargers…ill go with JETS since Gordow beat me. Can he finally make the playoffs??? I think so…. Welcome emo Jets after he is one and done !!!

 

  • Bottom feeders: Cards, getting a grove back
  • Falcons: Cmon bruh….you are giving us old guys a bad name. Get ya game up (wanna trade ?)
  • Ravens: SC – you are killing me, you are better than your record
  • Pats: Sup with 3 wins…you are tough on offense and surprisingly sim in my eyes. Tank maybe?
  • Raiders: Kaz you were so good last cycle, what happen man ?

 

Ok now SIM RANKINGS:

  1. Realist
  2. Bigbucs
  3. DjRhude
  4. Smilez
  5. Mick
  6. Scrotal recall

I could defend this list but eh, ill just say whenever I play these guys its tough. They mix it up enough and call plays diversly on both offense and defense, didn’t see any abuse or trick gimmicks from any of these guys. I could also add Krul and Windy since we play all the time but I am bitter since I lost to both of them. But these guys, in my mind mix it up so much that it’s hard to call a good 3rd down defense.

Again sim is a unique word. If you don’t agree with this list …make your own. If you think you deserve to be on this list…lets play and ill give you my honest opinion….also am I SIM GOD…nope…not at all but I do try and play a sim style without resorting to trick gimmicks. I will also never run Cover 4 a whole drive either. But I am not perfect and will gladly take shots at my game. Go ahead I’m a big boy, do it.

Well hope you enjoy these …and if you didn’t…. well fuck it don’t read’em next time.

Disclaimer: There are a few guys I have not played… also a few guys I have not played since season I and my old memory can’t recall all of my games.

 

PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS:

Not even sure who will be in it …but ill list my Conference champion game:

  • AFC Title game: Chiefs vs Colts
  • NFC Title Game: Bucs vs Vikes

Of course these teams could play before the title game since I have no clue of seeding’s but I will be too lazy to write up another prediction one later. Please note these were done before week 16 was finished and updated.
