NFASL Mid Season report

ESPN Breaking News NFASL Weekly Hosted by Tommanowns, & e30zack has kicked off, and can be found in the Audio Vault on Discord if you ever miss an episode!

     

        On this edition of ESPNEWS It's Week 8, the 1/2 mark of the Season and it's time to look at what's going on in the NFASL. With Major changes this year to personell, and major moves in terms of coaches coming in, Year one of the NFASL is always crazy! Guess what this year is no different! Several Moves have been made for season 2 with some major players playing out their contract in their respective cities. With 7 teams making the playoffs this year, a chance for a Wildcard team doing some major damage in the Post-Season is more feasible than ever. Right now some of the Major players have fell off, and the a few new comers are showing their mettle. The League is full steam ahead, with X-Factor. Something I thought I'd never relent to, however I'm always listening to reason. My Lieutenants made a case, and so far so good. I do already forsee some major problems coming forward, however the Die is set, and now it is, what it is.

   The Discord Application has been one of my favorite additions this year. The Organization is what I like about it, which helps me keep everyone informed. The Days of I didn't know are over. If you don't know now, it's because you truly don't give a F***.  With that said the Nickel 3-3-5 has been BANNED as it has become the YouTube Meta Defense Shutting down Passing attacks with only a few controller adjustments. It also does just enough against the run where you are forced to pass just simply based on dice rolls. Any One size fits all defense, is most likely going to be banned, so adding them to the league only hurts you in the long run. 

      At the Halfway point teams are starting to distance themselves from the pack, however it's still early. Taking a more realistic approach to this game will help some of these teams immensely. Especially if you have one of the more talented teams in the Game if you're throwing Interceptions like they are Bell Bottoms Jeans in the 70's you are not paying attention to the game. Actually thinking about a gameplan, picking a play to set up another play, or simply saying Hey this game is over, I lost, live to fight another day. I cannot stress that enough. I don't get the benefit of throwing 7 interceptions in the hope of getting one more meaningless Touchdown....  

  Lets take a look at the Conferences in the NFASL, and see how things are shaking out.

 

 

American Football Conference

 

 

 

 

 

    AFC North

  • Pittsburgh Steelers 5-2 W-3
  • Baltimore Ravens 5-2 L-1
  • Cincinatti Bengals 5-2 W-2
  • Cleveland Browns 3-5 L-3

AFC South

  • Tennessee Titans 6-0 W-6
  • Jacksonville Jaguars 3-3 L-1
  • Indianapolis Colts 2-5 W-1
  • Houston Texans 1-6 L-6

AFC East

  • New England Patriots 7-0 W-7
  • Buffalo Bills 5-3 L-2
  • New York Jets 2-6 L-1
  • Miami Dolphins 1-6 L-1

AFC West

  • Los Angeles Chargers 5-2 W-4
  • Kansas City Chiefs 5-3 W-2
  • Las Vegas Raiders 3-4 W-2
  • Denver Broncos 2-5 L-3

 

    In the AFC the The Patriots are the Top Dog with a perfect 7-0 record behind one of the most loaded secondaries in the game featuring 99 overall shutdown Corner Stephon Gilmore. Not to mention a solid Run game, Cam Newton at Quarterback, and a Super Bowl Winning coach in SleepingKnapp and the Patriots are becoming a serious Super Bowl Contender. The Titans are right behind them, at 6-0, and will be looking to take their record to 7-0 with a win in week 8 against a Bengals team that is on the rise. The Titans are doing it on defense, as they have the leagues 2nd ranked defense only giving up 20ppg where teams are regularly giving up 50. The Titans also have a battering ram of a running back of Derrick Henry who wails on teams until they submit.  Their coach ChocoRainReubz is in his second stint here in the NFASL, and looks like he is here to stay. 

    There are a few teams of note in the first 8 games that are worth mentioning. One of those teams are the Los Angeles Chargers leading the AFC West with a 5-2 record. They find themselves on a 4 game winning streak, Leading that division with the Chiefs featuring one of the most difficult to defend teams is nothing to sneeze at. The Ravens with 6 time Super Bowl Winning coach Tommanowns is 5-2, and of course are one of the most dangerous teams in the league. However a week 7 loss to their division rival the Pittsburgh Steelers may have signaled the arrival of coach Hac3443. The Steelers are also 5-2, and find themselves on a 3 game winning streak.  In Fact that entire Division is tight with the Bengals 5-2 with #1 Draft Pick showing the poise of a veteran, and the Cleveland Browns 3-5. The Browns have lost 3 in a row, but with a lineup consisting of some of the best players in the league they should right the ship soon enough. 

     For every Yin, there is a Yang and in the AFC I have to say to see some of these teasm struggle is surprising. The Dolphins, Texans, Colts, Jets, and Broncos have a combined 8 wins in Week 8. Now I'm no math Wiz, but that don't add up. Seeing teams struggle out the gate is hard to fathom especially for some of the long term members, who knows the ropes are unacceptable.  It's still early so a few of these teams should try to make a run, however we will see.

 

National Football Conference

 

 

 

 

 

NFC South

  • Carolina Panthers 6-2 W-3
  • Atlanta Falcons 5-3 L-1
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers 4-4 L-3
  • New Orleans Saints 1-5 L-2

NFC North

  • Green Bay Packers 6-1 W-3
  • Minnesota Vikings 3-4 L-1
  • Chicago Bears 2-5 L-5
  • Detroit Lions 1-6 L-2

NFC East

  • New York Giants 5-3 W-5
  • Washington Redskins 3-4 W-1
  • Dallas Cowboys 1-7 L-7
  • Philadelphia Eagles 1-7 W-1

NFC West

  • Seattle Seahawks 6-1 W-5
  • Arizona Cardinals 5-2 L-1
  • San Francisco 49ers 5-3 L-2
  • Los Angeles Rams 2-5 W-1

  In the NFC there are no undefeated teams, however the next best thing is to have 1 loss. There are two teams that have that distinction and they are the Seattle Seahawks, and Green Bay Packers. Both teams are 6-1, and coming off of impressive wins in week 8. The Seahawks defeated the San Francisco 49ers complete with smack talk, cheating accusations, backed up with Video Evidence, and most assuredly a stern talking to from Commissioner Newmoon, to Coach Kaliko420. The Packers defeated Division Rival, and their closest competitor the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers look like they will be coming out of the North, another one of the Leagues Newest Users. Always exciting to see new users kick in the front door, and make a name for themselves. The North is a division I thought would be one of the most competitive in this rendition of Madden, however the South, or West may just take that home with the Cardinals having a 5-2 record, and making some dangerous trades.

The South has 3 new owners, and with the Saints being the only team struggling. However I've seen coach PantherAlumni74 play, and I think he will figure things out. There's an old saying that goes it's not how you start, but how you finish. 

       Saquon Barkley is coming off of breaking, nay shattering the all time single game rushing record after Sony Michel Broke it a week prior. However at 431 yards Barkley's record should be safe from now until eternity. That run game could take the Giants, and their headcoach all the way, as The-KiiD-KennY is looking to get his first ever banner in the Hall of Champions. The NFC Least as Tommanowns calls it has pretty much become a laughing stock. Owners with 90 overall rated teams tank in week 1, and the Eagles are still trying to get his footing in the league, but I digress.

Team Statistics: In the NFL the teams with the best stats normally have the best seasons. This year is no different. It takes every aspect of a team to win games, and while you can have one do well and not the other  over a full season it will show and prove in your final win loss record. So far the tops in the league are those we are about to show here. Let's take a look.
