  3. Well I'm on my 5th & 6th actual players in this league, which seems kind of crazy at this point, really. It's come full circle now, I had a RB and LB back in S1 when I first started in the EFL. Now, I'm back to RB and LB created together but starting in the NCAA. So my players have done a lot, each of them playing 10 seasons at least except one. So I thought, why not rank them, how I feel anyway. 5. All my fillers I immediately break what I was gonna talk about. I was moreso ranking my real players, but I thought, why not? I'll chuck my fillers here. I've had 3 fillers now hit the EFL level. Shin Malphur, Bellamy Blake, and Vontae Mack. Mack was drafted this season, but I think Malphur was pretty solid, and I'm not sure what Blake has done so far. I think he should have a pretty alright build, but I don't really know. 4. Casey Archer My youngest player to retire, Archer did hit regression this season, he'll retire after playing 8 seasons at the end of S21. All things considered, he really had a pretty good career. Depending how it goes this season, he could end up top 10 in interceptions and passes defended. That's pretty good, but it does kind of lend itself to how well my other players performed. Archer was always solid but never spectacular. I almost put him 3rd, but it just wasn't quite enough to be maybe top 10 in CB stats. If he played 3-4 more seasons, maybe he'd be #3 or even #2. 3. Curtis Drake This one is kind of interesting. For a while in the earlier days of the league - before anyone ever regressed - Drake actually had the highest TPE in the league. Unfortunately, Drake was perpetually held back by being a Workhorse archetype - meaning his speed was capped at 90. It was several seasons before it really became noticeable that that was a massive detriment. And equipment didn't come out until somewhere around S6 - by which time Drake was already hitting regression. He ended up playing 12 seasons or so, and at the time of retirement had the career lead for rushing yards. Despite leading in yards and carries, he wasn't really spectacular, which is why I think it's a lot closer between Drake & Archer than maybe it would seem. There's a definite separation though between 3 and 2 in these rankings. 2. Logan Crawford This is an interesting choice between 1 and 2. Crawford leads QBs in every stat, almost 10,000 more yards than anyone else (though Rose is still going strong to close that gap), and could reach 50,000 yards before this season. 350 TDs. But, QB has been a very difficult position to hold down long term, which might surprise some people. Crawford has played 140 games, and will finish with 156. Across 20 seasons, only 5 QBs have played more than 100 games. So while Crawford would still have the advantage, there'd be a much smaller gap between Crawford and other QBs if not for the games disparity. That difference between competitors I believe make the difference between 1 and 2. 1. Marcus Holloway Holloway is my greatest player, I feel. Holloway leads all players in career tackles, 2nd most coming from a player who played 30 more games. Holloway is the only player to reach 1300 tackles, and Ray Ray Foster the only other player over 1200 (in 198 games). There's a few other players who might close the gap, and have a good chance to finally sniff Holloway's record. But that record has stood for about 8 seasons now. The players who might reach the legendary 1330 tackles would need to play more games than Holloway did. 113 sacks is 5th most. These career numbers are far more prestigious than Crawford's, IMO, given how players have the same/more games than Holloway but nowhere near the tackles. That is what I believe makes Holloway my greatest player ever. And now he has 2 sons in the ECFA.
  4. Nah, when I announced them as potential next players here and here, Luke was a year older, but they started college at the same time. I needed something that explained that. He's a real player now

  6. Luke Holloway went through most of his schooling in Seattle, but in the summer before starting high school, the Holloway family moved to New York City and Luke was enrolled at Erasmus Hall High School, the top school in the city. Luke didn't see much playing time as a freshman, given how short notice his transfer to the school was, the coaching staff didn't feel he was prepared to see much of the field. Luke learned from the best though, his father Marcus being one of the best EFL linebackers of all time. Luke took his time, made sure his work ethic and attitude were right. Luke was constantly talking to the coaches, watching video, or working out. The coaches raved about how well Luke took to limited playing time. He was given a lot more snaps late in the season, as the coaches were blown away with how well he did picking up the playbook and calling out what he saw from the sideline. After a full summer of work, Luke came back as the starting MLB, commanding the defense. He was eating up tackles, collecting 204, which was just enough to land him in the top 10 of the country. He's been learning the linebacker position since he was a kid, and spend a boat load of time learning this team's strengths, weaknesses, and plays. That intelligence is huge, combined with his incredible athleticism, led to him being one of the most dominant LBs even as a sophomore. Erasmus Hall had a top defense thanks largely to Luke. As a junior, Luke backed it up with an even better season, with 222 tackles. Erasmus Hall was a strong team and the defense was top 5. Senior season was a big one for Erasmus Hall. They started 7-0, dominating everyone. They were the #1 defense and #1 offense through those 7 games. When Luke's brother Xavier was injured, the offense struggled quite a lot. Luke continued to lead the defense, but they still lost 3 straight games with the offense struggling. When Xavier returned, the team didn't lose again, Luke finished the season with 251 tackles. In the state championship, Erasmus Hall was leading the whole game. Unfortunately, Luke tore his ACL, being unable to finish the game. Even still, it energized the team and Erasmus Hall went on to win. For Luke, it put into serious question his college prospects. He would not be ready to start a college season in a few months. This led to the decision where Luke would take a year off, rehabbing the whole time in top medical facilities. With high school seasons winding down, Luke would have to wow college recruiters even without playing for a full season. It has put some teams off, however it gave him time to be 110% healthy. Luke doesn't feel teams will be too worried anymore once they see him in action. On the bright side, it's given Luke the opportunity to begin his college career at the same time as his brother Xavier.
  7. Xavier Holloway attended Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn. When Marcus moved his family to New York when he took the head coaching job, it was not long before his kids were set to start high school. Luke was about to be a freshman, while Xavier was still in junior high. Marcus took his kids to one of the best schools in the state, Erasmus Hall. When Xavier started, he was a star player almost immediately. He was sharing a lot of snaps early on in the season, but as games went on, even as a freshman he was dominating. That led to a dramatic increase in touches by the end of the season, and then as a sophomore he was getting almost all the carries. That continued through junior and senior seasons, with the exception of a few games as a junior where he struggled with a sprained wrist. Xavier Holloway was absolutely dominant. Over his high school career, he averaged 211 yards per game. As just a senior, it was 312 yards per game. Holloway had multiple games over 300 yards as a senior, including one with 401 yards. He finished his career with over 10,000 rushing yards, over 4000 of those as a senior. In terms of touchdowns, it was 5 per game as a senior, amounting to 40 TDs, just eclipsing 140 in his career. In terms of wins, Erasmus Hall went 45-7 in Holloway's career, with 3 of those losses coming in the 4 games that Holloway missed, and 3 more coming as a freshman. Holloway was an absolute force that led his team to back to back state championships. Those championships game on a pair of "undefeated" seasons, as Holloway didn't lose a game he started in either of his final 2 seasons. In all Holloway won the last 22 games he played. It was an incredible career for Holloway that saw him named a 1st team all-american twice. Holloway is certainly the best running back to ever play for Erasmus Hall, and one of the best running backs in high school football history. It certainly painted an interesting recruitment period for Holloway, cementing him as one of the next great college running backs.
  8. Casey Archer has announced his surprising retirement from football. Playing football at home has been a dream scenario for him, but it's also led him to think more about it's effects on him and his long term health, and wants to be home with his kids now. Carryover TPE 1244 * 0.07 = 88 TPE
  9. jesus, 66 pass attempts, all miami's points were on FGs
  10. C is decent but a little too crazy, and the gif doesn't perfectly loop so you can see it reset before everything fades away. B is the way to go. Static banner
