   Niners Strike Gold in Carolina!

          Charlotte, NC. In the NFASL Game of the Week 8, The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Carolina Panthers 30-27 after a tumultous two weeks. The Niners saw their record go from 3-0 the Talk of the town, to 3-2, and equally the Talk of the town for different reasons. However this week in primetime they got their swagger back as the Niners using the right arm of Jimmy Garoppolo throwing for 368 yards, and two touchdowns was nothing short of special. The Niners scored in every qtr, and put up 30 points in the win. The Niners were devoid of offensive talent a year ago, and made big changes in the offseason. Those changes came into fruition as Travis Kelce, and Tyreek Hill both contributed mightily to the Niners win. The only negative in this game for the Niners is that Matt Breida trying to do his best LE'Veon Bell impression didn't have many yards, but what able to score two touchdowns in the win. 

   The Carolina Panthers tried to match the Niners score for score scoring 27 of their own. a goose egg in the first qtr for the Panthers proved to be their undoing and allowed the Niners to win at the Panthers home stadium. Cam Newton played great throwing for 323 yards, and two touchdowns was distraught after the game, knowing they let one slip away.

             The San Francisco 49ers will take on their bitter rival, and leading the NFC West Arizona Cardinals in week 9. With the smack talk going back and forth all season long, this game will have the full attention of the footballl world. The Carolina Panthers will lick their wounds as they have a much needed bye week to make improvements to their team. Until Next time this has been a Sim Athletics Network Production.

   Rams Get Rolling on the Ground!

          Agoura Hills, CA. In the NFASL Game of the Week 5, The Los Angeles Rams steppped into a positive direction defeating the Baltimore Ravens 10-3. The Rams after a tumultous start to the Season going 0-3 out of the gate the Rams have now won 2 games in a row, and have got back to what they have done well in the past. That is give the Ball to All Pro Back Todd Gurley II, and playing shut down defense. That formula has worked for years in the NFL, and has a championship Pedigree behind it. The Rams tried it the 21st century way, and have not had the success that many believe a team with this much talent should have. Well that might have just changed as Gurley finished with 24 carries for 150yards, and a touchdown. Check one. The Rams then played stellar defense behind 2 interceptions of Baltimore Quarterback Lamar Jackson, and shutting down the Baltimore Offense to just 3 points. Check two. 

   The Baltimore Ravens will be kicking themselves when they look at the film of this game as they were very unbalanced in their approach to this game. Lamar Jackson the Teams quarterback had the most carries on the team with 4, and checked the Ball down to Chris Thompson to the tune of 8 catches and 58 yards in the loss. With the Ravens unable to make the big play the Rams were able to control the clock having the ball for 22:48, to 13:12 in time of possession. 

             The Baltimore Ravens will look to get back on track in week 7 against a tough as nails AFC South opponent the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Los Angeles Rams will look to keep the streak going, making it 3 in a row, and moving their record to .500 in their next game against their rival the Arizona Cardinals.   Until Next time this has been a Sim Athletics Network Production.

Overview: The Oakland Raiders are the first team in quite sometime to Grace the cover of the NFASL, in Team Spotlight. hteT this week in the Team Spotlight. At 3-1 The Raiders don't have the leagues best record, and it's still early. However what they are doing defensively in the early parts of the season has to be looked at. The Raiders are dominant on defense, with no other adjective being able to grasp what is happening. The Raiders are first in Sacks (31), Interceptions (17), First in points allowed per game (13), and first in rush Defense (167). The Black Hole is where opposing offenses come to die! At the start of last season the Raiders traded Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears in a move that baffled the entirety of the Raider Nation. However it seems they knew what they were doing as they have hit a level that they never have with Mack. The Raiders Rookie Heath Hilgenberg out of Boise State has been nothing short of amazing wracking up 8.5 sacks in 4 games. With that sort of Pass rush it's no wonder the Raiders lead the League in interceptions. The Raiders Defense is even more impressive, when the league has done everything in it's power to make sure offenses are never stopped.

    With most of the credit going to the Raiders defense for their start, the Offense has been overshadowed. 5th Year player Derek Carr is not having his best statistical year. Carr has a QBR of 86.7 literally middle of the pack at 15th overall in the league. Carrs 51% Competion percentage which is near the bottom portion of the league will have to be brought up if the Raiders expect to do what they want to do this season. Couple in the Fact that Carr has 6 interceptions to only 10 touchdowns, you can see where their may be a hiccup. The Raiders may have to lean a little more heavily on Halfback Tevin Coleman whose 307 yards is 8th in the league. However the Raiders have so many weapons with Amari Cooper, Marcedes Lewis, and Travis Benjamin who all have game breaking abilities that you want to use them. Problem is when you have a what looks like a all time great defense, you want to make sure you play to the strengths of your team. Coach e30zack is a Super Bowl winning coach, winner of Super Bowl XIII, so I'm sure whatever short comings this team has he will rectify them. Congratulations on your Team Spotlight, the league, and I will be looking to see what you do this season.

ESPNEWS Trade Rules Change

ESPN Breaking News The NFASL Trade rules have been changed. Read further to see what's changed.

     

        On this edition of ESPNEWS We will Discuss the new trade rules in the league, and basically speak on the state of the league. As the New season starts, or second season as it were we are going at a pretty quick rate. As in all things I like to keep everyone up to date with what is going on. Commissioners, JD, and Shooter have come up with a trade rule that could add a touch more excitement in the league allowing for one trade to be made during the regular season. Now if any of you jokers know me you know that I am resistant to change because I just know how things are going to go =) however as long as the case made makes sense, changes sometimes happen. This time is one of those times.  The New trade rules are as follows.

  • One trade allowed per season, per team.
  • No injured player can be traded
  • Trades are done by Normal NFL Deadline
  • Trade Points still need to match
  • Trade Center will not be re-opened because someone was injured or for any other reason.
  • You can only trade one season ahead IE: you trade player "A" in season 2 which is the 2019 season, and you want to trade for a draft pick. That draft pick can only be a player in the upcoming draft(2020), not a Draft pick in 2021

   You still have to follow the No Trade list of course with the caveat that if a player is on the No trade pist you can trade him if he is on the last year of his contract.

The List of non-tradeable players can be found for the AFC/NFC here -----------> http://nfasl.spruz.com/pt/AFC-Non-Tradeable-List-Madden-2019.9-3-2018/blog.htm http://nfasl.spruz.com/pt/The-NFC-Non-Tradeable-list-Madden-2019.9-3-2018/blog.htm    If you any questions regarding the list please direct them toward Hunter Clark the coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers.   Good Luck to you all Moving forward.

   Niners are Back!

          Santa Clara, CA. In the NFASL Game of the Week 2, The San Francisco 49ers renewed their Rivalry with the Seattle Seahawks defeating them 36-26 in primetime. The Niners were embarrassed a year ago with the Seahawks sweeping them in the regular season, and the Niners finishing up the season 3-13. With the Niners feeling as though they were devoid of talent they made several big moves in the offseason to give themselves what they believed would be a fighting chance in the incredibly loaded NFC West. With both the Los Angeles Rams, and the Seattle Seahawks both finishing with double Digit wins 14, and 15 respectively the Niners knew they couldn't just rest on their Laurels. The Teams general Manager Kaliko made several big signings during the Free Agency period, and made two major moves via trades acquiring Speedster Tyreek Hill from the Chiefs, and Le'Veon Bell from the Pittsburgh Steelers.  So far so good as the Niners are 2-0, with both those players contributing in major ways. Wide Receiver Tyreek Hill finished the game with 3 cathces for 127 yards, and touchdown. And Le'Veon Bell finishing the game with 20 rushing attempts for 79 yards, ,and 5 Receptions for 70 yards with two Touchdowns.

         The Seattle Seahawks had a game to forget with the Leagues MVP picking up where he left off at in the Super Bowl throwing 5 interceptions. The Seahawks are in danger as Most teams are after having won the Super Bowl hit a lull, and find it hard to get up for these games in the regular season. The Pheonomenom is called Super Bowl Hangover. So not only are they playing every team eager to measure themselves against the best, they are also trying to stave off that feeling.

 The Seattle Seahawks will look to get back on track in week #3 and will be facing a team in the New York Giants that are 2-0, and playing incredibly well. The Giants will be looking for revenge as the Seahawks are the team that sent them packing in the playoffs. The San Francisco 49ers will look to continue rolling as they take on the Detroit Lions in Michigan.    Until Next time this has been a Sim Athletics Network Production.
