Week 1 vs The Jacksonville Jaguars
I don't know if it was just the fact that it was week 1, the fact that the Giants offense is really starting to age, or if god himself played for Riot, but this game was not a good one for The G-Men. We actually did have a lead and 1 point in the game, but the offense just could not do anything right and the defense gave up big 3rd down conversation after big 3rd down conversation. lag didn't help either. Giants fall 17-27 in large part to Danny Dimes 4 INTs.
Week 2 vs The WFT
With The WFT's owner on vaca, we had the pleasure of trying and playing the CPU for the first time in quite a while. Word on the street was that the CPU sliders were lowered so that having to play the CPU would be a little easier. I can promise this is not the case. The defense constantly stalled against the super human CPU defense and wasn't really able to get anything going. Luckily, we were able to get some stops of our own and also force a extremely rare CPU INT. Giants bounce back and win this one 13-7.
Week 3 vs The Tennessee Titans
TBH, We weren't really looking forward to playing the Titans. Grantly, we haven't lost to them at all this cycle, but playing them is always a grind. Luckily, we were the last scheduled matchup for week 3 and out of the goodness of our hearts we decided to force sim for the league (we get user points for this right?) Game looked pretty friggin boring according to the box score, but we did in fact come out with the W, keeping pace with the rest of the cycle. G-Men win 17-14.
Week 4 vs The Indianapolis Colts
Long time XCFL owner Shawn... errr... Sean.. errr Shaun? anyways, DeSean finally stepped down after being one of the longest tenured members of the XCFL. Hopefully he returns next madden because he's one of the good guys and those seem to be lacking nowadays. Anyways, we played the CPU in this game and also started to wonder if we were ever going to play another actual team owner the rest of the season. The game play itself was much like our week 2 game against the CPU as it was a grind, boring, and infuriating all at the same time. Luckily for us yet again, we were able to hold on to a sim margin of victory and move to 3-1 on the season.
