1st and goal
 
Hopefully I wont be expunged from this website for posting a silly thread such as this... But I wanted to try and deviate from all the pessimism floating around lately and couldnt resist. What do you think about using different personel in goal line situations? (ie. the Patriots, Bucs) I think we could get creative here. Maybe using a linebacker as a reciever on a bootleg pass or handing the ball off to Cooley and let him smash his way in? What do you guys think? Maybe I've been playing too much ESPN 2K5.

What are thinking, running the ball or catching it. I think that we would have better chance of throwing a pass to someone. Maybe Lavar or even Sean Taylor. It has to be a sick athlete for it to really be effective. Im concerned that we dont use Clinton the way we should at the goal line. I mean, for crying out loud, someone tell Joe that this boy is an athlete, and can catch the ball too.

The fact that you mentioned ESPN 2K5 should ban you from this site. That's what silly. Dude, if need be, I'll refund your $20 for the game if you can muster up the other $10 to buy Madden 2005. As far as goal line personnel, I don't think it's necessary to play around with that. Especially since the offense sputters before we get into the redzone. :oink:

I agree Monksdown, we should throw to Clinton more. I am suggesting pass or run...Sean Taylor would be a good option, he's tall, physical and aggressive. I could see him coming down with the jump ball.

Yes, Portis can catch the ball too. But we need to work on getting him closer to the 1500 yd mark. :oink:

BossHog...Madden was $50 when it came out. 2K5 was the best budget game ever created, not just sports-budget game. I also favor the logistics in ESPN, instead of Madden where you can drop back 40 feet from the pocket and throw an 85 yard touchdown. That's silly.

I can see him getting knocked on his ass as soon as the ball is snapped. I just love you 'all-pro' gamers! That like having Dante Culpepper returning punts and kickoffs (I know you use Randy Moss because I've sent him out on a stretcher many times). I don't care how big, strong, and fast his is unconventional thinking isn't always smart. :oink:

I'd like to see Taylor at running back on the rare occassion.

Honestly - I'd just be happy if we didn't run it up the middle three times on goal line situations.

No offense. Literally. Seriously though. You can cop Madden now for under $35. And yes 2K5 is a quality game and thus a steal. It's like opting for generic prescription drugs or store brand can goods. It's up to you. :oink:

Who- Sean? Are you kidding. He's 6'3 230 lbs and he's faster than 98% of the linebackers in the entire league. Im not saying he should run the ball. He is most definitely not an elusive runner. but he is a ball hog when it's in the air. He's built like a small recieving tight end, but faster than any of them.

BossHog...how did you go from Taylor catching a first and goal pass to Daunte Culpepper returning punts? I started this thread for some positive feedback, not to upset you "serious gamers".

And his hands are better than 98% of WRs and TEs in the league right? No coach in the history of the NFL would entertain this nonsense. :oink:

The only coaches that would entertain this "nonsense" win superbowls. Like Chicago with the fridge. Tampa Bay with Sapp. And oh yeah, didnt a defensive player score a touchdown on offense this super bowl. And wasn't the game only won by 3 points. Good try.

Bosshog - when I acheive my dream of coaching the Cardinals (low expectations) you'll be my first call! We'll show them!

And im sure that the two of you would turn around that storied franchise with your conservative offense.
