This is not so much a session report as it is one long whining!
Today the overrated Rockets came to face my mighty Cobras and here's what happened.
Having won the coin toss and chosen to receive, my return specialist had a land and made it to the 29...only to fumble the ball.
The Rockets quickly tried to take advantage of that mistake, but due to a heroic goalline stand were held to 3 points.
Next kickoff return ended on the 21...and in another turnover. Once again the D manned up and sent the Rockets off with another FG.
Having wisened up, on the ensuing kickoff the rturner took a knee and my QB orchestrated a beautiful drive ending in a TD when he found the WR in the corner of the endzone. Special teams mishaps continued as the PAT was blocked.
Still, with only two more turnovers (one on the red zone) I made it to the half time in one piece.
Unfortunately in the second half, with my defense tired and some iffy play calling by the headcoach I gave up an early FG, but unfazed came storming back before facing a 4th &1 on the opponents 38. This being no-mans land I went for it and with a receibver wide open what else would happen but a dropped ball ( yes my die showed an X with a yardage of roughly 13.15 yatds). My defense did not give up, but an amazing 3 turnovers later I had to surrender to a devastating 6-18 loss (including a late game safety).
I know Lady Luck is not your most loyal mistress, but 8(!!) turnovers in one game...come on!!!!!
BTW I love the game, but start to hate the dice.
