Update Alert- Banner Creator Update

Welcome to another announcement of just some more things being updated here at Daddy Leagues. Today we will be looking at the updates and improvements to the Banner Creator . While some people already use other programs to create their banners for their leagues, many find trying to figure out how to save images, upload them to the web and then add them in code to be more than they want to handle. So Daddy Leagues is once again trying to improve things to make them easier to use to help you with customizing your league in many ways without having to have a degree in coding.

The Banner Creator was already there but today some updates have been done to give you more options to customize your league the way you like it. Now there are more templates to choose from for your banner background. As well, the old player cut outs were removed and over 150 new player cutouts were added to give you even more options to choose from in customizing your very own personal league banner. In order to access it go to your admin page , then find the words "Banner Creator" and click it to get started.

You can choose your league name you wish to display on the banner as well as the size, color of the text and its position in the banner. You also can choose up to 3 different players and adjust their size & position as well. Once you have selected your options simply click "Generate Banner" for it to generate what the banner will look like based on what you selected. If your unhappy with it, you can simply adjust the settings again and then click "Generate Banner" again to fine tune your settings to get it just right .

Once you feel like you have the banner looking just like you would like it , there are two options on ways to put it in your banner for your league page. For those who do not feel like having to mess with the coding , you can simply click "Download". Once the downloaded banner is complete, you can then go to your admin page and click "Banner and Background". Here you have an option to upload a banner found by clicking " Choose File" option for File Input. Simply click "Choose File" and select the banner you just created and downloaded. Once it is complete , scroll down and click "save changes" and your done. For those that prefer to do it thru coding , you can simply click "Imgur" . Once you click it , it will take a minute but once its done a URL for your image will appear below the banner. Simply copy that url and enter it in your code for your banner in the correct place and your done.

This is just another way that Daddy Leagues is continuing to try to add new things and new updates to make things quicker and easier for you to use on your sites. Easier customizations has always been one of the top things people have requested and Daddy Leagues will continue to work on updating things to make them easier for you to use. As always please continue your feedback on new features that have been added for improving them as well as your ideas for things to add to the site. Your feedback is valuable to making the site better for everyone involved. Thanks again for your continued support of Daddy Leagues.

New Feature Alert - The Daddy Leagues Draft Recap

Today Daddy Leagues is announcing its 3rd major upgrade for the Madden 21 season. In case you missed it , previously Daddy Leagues announced that you can now set which notifications your bot sends to your chat and which ones you may not want it to send- Notification Options Post . Also Daddy Leagues announced the new Trade Console - Trade Console Post that is meant to really help streamline and speed up the process for those leagues that require trades to be approved by admins. These were two highly requested features .

Today Daddy Leagues is excited to announce a new Draft Recap Section to your league pages.

**VERY IMPORTANT**- In order to get this recap to work you must send league info and rosters together, also send weekly stats(pick all weeks) separately while in week 1 of the preseason after your draft. This is when the data for the recap will be pulled. You can find the recap in new section in your Nav Bar labeled "Draft". When you click Draft you will see a few options as this recap offers several breakdowns.

The first option you will see is Recap. Here you will see a breakdown of each round , who was picked in picks 1-32 of each round . What team made them , the player they picked, their dev, age, overall and a link to take you quickly to their player page. So you can get a quick view of how the draft went exactly in order by each round.

The second option is a "Top Ten" list that will list the top 10 players drafted ( by overall) and who drafted them.

The third option of the Draft Recap is the labeled Top Tier. This section tells the Number Of Players Drafted in the "Top Tier" of players from the draft. The "Top Tier" players are based on the top 25% ( by their overall rating) of players drafted. This section will show a list of how many of the "Top Tier" players each team drafted.

The fourth option is labeled Best Draft Award . This award is given out to the team who had the best draft based on how many of the Top Tier players they drafted along with a formula that adds on points for each player a team drafts thats above normal dev. This is just an extra way for bragging rights in your league when you see your team logo listed as the winner of the Best Draft Award. So even if you cant win a lot of games you still might be able to win an award .

The fifth option is labeled Best Picks. This section will show ( in order sorted by overall from highest to lowest) the top rated player for each position drafted along with what team picked them, the round picked in , what place in the round they were picked, age , dev and overall rating. This will give you a quick list to see the best players picked at each position in the draft and when they were picked.

Daddy Leagues hopes you will enjoy this new feature to add a little more extra to your leagues. Many leagues already manually have been trying to keep track of much of this info, this will hopefully make it much easier to keep up with. As well you will be able to go back and see past draft recaps as you progress thru the years. Just another way Daddy Leagues is trying to find new things to add within the limitations allowed due to the limited options given with the info from the app. Thank you all for your continued support over the years and welcome to all the new 1st time users and Leagues. Daddy Leagues hopes you enjoy your league pages. As always feel free to post suggestions for new features in the forums . Hope you all have a blast for Madden 21.

Jags Coach Tizel Mulling Options

The Jags season seemed to be off to a good start going 2-0 in the first two weeks. However the last 3 weeks already has fans in Jacksonville calling for the team to find a better QB. To say that Blake Bortles has struggled the last few weeks , would be a huge understatement. He has thrown almost a season worth of ints in those 3 weeks - 13 . While for 2 weeks he has thrown none, in 1 week he threw 1 , then has thrown 7 and 6 in the other two games.

Tizel seems rather frustrated with his QB at this time "Look Blake knows good and well his job is not secure here.I would like t o see him succeed . But if he keeps putting our team in bad situations, we may have to figure out something else. I dont care how much money he is owed, if he is hurting the team too much or causing issues on this team, he will be riding the bench or getting shipped off. He knows he needs to practice more and stop forcing throws. Of course some of his ints he has thrown , were super plays made by the defense who seemingly jumped from no where to get them, an int is an int at the end of the day and they hurt our team. We must strive to get on the positive side of our turnover differntial."

Both games , they still somehow managed to still be in the games and keep it close. Of course its only because of their stout defense. But some are starting to wonder , if this continues thruout the year, how that could effect the locker room unity if the defense has to keep being called upon to try to save the team only for Bortles to give the ball right back to the opposing team and keeping this defense on the field too much.

The Jags already made a big trade moving a couple of really big pieces from this defense. Mainly done as a way to free up cap going forward for the teams future, they still will be missing Bouye and Jackson on the defensive side of the ball. When asked about the trade ,Tizel had this to say "Managing a team is tough. You have to try to win now, but at the same time you need to keep a focus on the teams future. Maximizing everything you can, to make sure you have enough money to resign as many guys as you can. Bouye and Jackson were for sure staples here for many years. We had to make some tough choices to try to help open cap for our future.We had younger guys who need to get some experience on the fields as well in order to help them improve. There is no teacher better than experience in the moments. We hope these guys can in future years make up for the loss of those two guys."

In week 6 they face the 1-4 Cowboys, but after that, their schedule is not a pretty one. Facing the 4-1 Texans, 4- 1 Eagles before their bye week. They are looking like a very unlikely .500 team at their break in week 9. So they know the struggle to make the playoffs looks slim right now, they also know they must just stay focused, one game at a time right now. Still alot of season left to go . "Look , we are not happy about the last 3 weeks, but they are behind us now. We are focusing on the Cowboys whom is in front of us tonight. We have always had close games against coach Finn. We expect this to be no different. We just have to protect the ball and if we do, I think we stand a chance to bring us back up to .500 this week. One game, one opponent at a time is what we are looking at. Bortles needs to be better. Our oline needs to play much better as well in pass protection and the run game. In all honesty , our defense is not doing that great by the numbers, but they are on the field so much the last few games, its wearing them out. We must protect the ball to keep them fresher longer in the game. This week is a clean slate and a time we need to turn this ship around before we dig ourselves in a hole we cant get out of . Nothing kills the morale of your players spirit than having almost double the mount of losses as wins standing at week 10 .We gotta fight to keep that from happening." said Tizel .

MBC Early Season Predictions

With a quarter of the season down so far, here are my early season projections for how the season will play out;

NFC North Champ: Minnesota Vikings - The Vikings are atop the MBC power rankings and after their trade for potential MVP Carson Wentz, they will have too much talent for the upstart Lions to overtake for NFC crown. The Lions will continue their hot start and do enough to snag one of the two NFC wildcard spots.

AFC North Champ: Cincinnati Bengals - The first domino of this race will fall week 6 when the Bengals/Steelers face each other. The winner of this game will have a leg up on the other team, but I feel it will ultimately come down to their week 17 matchup where the Bengals will upset the Steelers and take the AFC North crown sending the Steelers to be the top wildcard team.

NFC East Champ: Philadelphia Eagles - Too much talent for the Redskins to overtake despite getting off to a fast start for Washington. Despite missing out on the NFC East, Washington will grab the last wildcard spot in the NFC.

AFC East Champ: New York Jets - The race between two teams(Jets/Buffalo) that most thought would be irrelevant for the first few years. Ultimately, the Jets have been 2-0 under Lamar Jackson and will start to pull away from the Bills for the division. I do believe for the second year in a row, the Bills will do just enough to squeak into the playoffs.

NFC South Champ: Atlanta Falcons - Falcons are off to a slow 2-3 start but I think there is just too much talent for them not to be able to overtake the division.

AFC South Champ: Houston Texans - Texans are off to a fast start and are starting to pull away from the rest of the division. The Jaguars have a chance in week 7 to pull closer in the division during their head to head matchup, but will have to continue to improve to turn their week 17 matchup into a division title game.

NFC West Champ: Los Angeles Rams - Seattle has done a good job hanging with the Rams during the earlier start to the season, but the Rams have too much talent and in week 5 came away with a 22-13 win to put them in great position to start pulling away in the division.

AFC West Champ: Kansas City Chiefs - The Chiefs have already beaten the Chargers and Broncos this season. I don't see any of the offenses in the AFC West improving enough to keep up with Mahomes and all of his weapons.

NFC Wildcard: Detroit Lions, Washington Redskins

AFC Wildcard: Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills

MVP/OPOY: Todd Gurley, RB, Rams - Gurley is the workhorse for the Rams and will get the ball more than any other playmaker in the league. Hunt and Bell are off to great starts as well, but just don't get the ball at a pace to hang with Gurley. Wentz at QB is the only one in position to challenge Gurley, but will need to limit his interceptions while maintaining his big play ability to have a chance.

DPOY: Myles Garrett, DE, Browns - It's hard not to go with hometown current sack leader, Kerry Hyder Jr, but Garrett has much more talent and is more likely to consider his success in getting to the QB.

OROY: Lamar Jackson, QB, Jets - Now that Jackson is starting on a new team he will have a chance to showcase his talents. Josh Allen, Derrius Guice and Calvin Ridley have the best chance to challenge Jackson.

DROY: Shaquem Griffin, OLB, Seattle - Shaquem has carved out a role in the Seahawks defense and already snagged 3 interceptions. No one has really established themselves as a front runner, so this is probably the hardest one to pick.

Coach of the Year: Coach Bird - They will be the top seed and top team in the power rankings.

Chiefs Ink a Huge Trade with Jags

The Kansas City Chiefs and the Jacksonville Jaguars finalized a blockbuster trade this morning involving star cornerback A.J Bouye and defensive tackle Malik Jackson. The Chiefs gave up their 2019 1st and 2nd round pick along with their 2020 2nd round pick in this deal to the jaguars.  This deal shows the chiefs are in win now mode and their willingness to mortgage their future for immediate results.  Coach Kiki is excited about this trade. When talking to the media, he said “ I am thrilled  and very excited to add Bouye and Jackson to our team. This improves our team tremendously. Adding two high caliber players like Bouye and Jackson will instantly improves any team. Bouye is a star corner and one of the very best in this league and Jackson is one of the best tackle in the league as well.  I can’t wait to incorporate them both into our game plan and get them going”.  Though the chiefs were able to add two great players, they paid a steep price. Giving up a 1st round pick along with two 2nd round pick is huge. But that’s what you have to pay to get a shutdown corner like Bouye and a stud tackle in Jackson. 

After this move, the Jacksonville Jaguars is a team to watch for in the upcoming draft as they have loaded up with picks. They currently have two 1st round picks and two 2nd round picks in this draft. It’s hard to say who won this trade since one team is building for the future and the other one trying to win now. We have to see how these draft picks pan out for jaguars. One thing is clear; the Chiefs defense is vastly improved from yesterday. They had to upgrade the defense in order to be a contender. Through the first four games, they were giving up way too much yardage and points. The week 5 matchup with the jaguars should be interesting as Bouye and Jackson will be lining up against their former team.

Week 3 Seahawks Bounce Back

After #SLEEPGATE, the Seahawks found themselves in a must win position. Coach Who Cares was overheard saying to his All-Pro OL: "We need two wins boys... Rams are in two weeks! If you can't block Eddie Goldman how are you gonna block (Aaron) Donald and (Ndamukong) Suh on the same damn play?!"

Unsurprisingly, Who Cares is looking forward to his conference rival as a test to see where this team stands. "Last season when the Rams came to Seattle, Petey Boy 'pooped the bed' per se. This year after some major shakeups I want to see where this new look team stands against a fully loaded, win-now Rams team."

Coach set a high bar for the Hawks to reach before their test against the Rams, but first they had to face a very very strong Cowboys team.

After a strong first quarter and playing with the wind the Seahawks found themselves quickly in an offensive slump, with two back to back drives ending in FGs inside the 2 yard line. When asked what caused the RZ struggles Who Cares cited the rainy conditions: "With how the weather was going, I just felt like being more conservative down there. All credit to the Dallas defense they stepped up to the challenge but I hope to see us bounce back down there next week."

Upon regaining the wind, the Seahawks took advantage by picking off two Dak Prescott passes late in the game. The first coming just one play after DangeRuss Wilson threw a RZ interception was by OLB Shaquem Griffin who returned the "lurk" to the 33. The ensuing drive was led almost exclusively by HB Rashad Penny who ran for 28 of 33 yards and the final TD of the game.

Finally the next drive the Cowboys had a chance to make it a 3 point game with a TD and plenty of time left on the clock. After a semi productive start to the drive, Dak threw a post route into Earl "Deuce" Thomas' zone and immediately regretted it. (Video below)

The Seahawks are sitting at a comfortable 2-1 and hope to continue the momentum into their next game vs the Cardinals and more importantly their game against the Rams.

Go Hawks

Lions Cut off Resiging Talks With Several Vets

So far this year, the Lions have given contract extensions to newly acquired Frank Clark, Brett Hundley and NFL sack leader Kerry Hyder Jr but they have informed several veterans that they will no longer be negotiating contract extensions until the end of the year. The long time Lions veterans looking for extensions have came away disappointed with the decision, but understand that it is a new regime in town that wants to bring in it's own players and they know they have to finish the season strong to impress Coach Chetty Twelve or one of the other 31 teams in the league. Veterans Golden Tate, Legarrette Blount, Ezekial Ansah and Tavon Wilson were among the players informed that contract extensions would be cut off. With the Lions off to a fast start, Coach Chetty Twelve is banking on players wanting to continue strong play in contract years over being upset about not getting the extensions they feel they deserve.

Week 2 GOW Preview: Lions vs Vikings

 

Rarely does a week 2 matchup carry so much importance. But with the Vikings, Lions and Packers all with opening week wins and a division that is projected to be close until the finish, the Packers/Vikings week 2 matchup was set to give one team a leg up on the division race.

In a back and forth game that came down to who had the ball last, the Vikings pulled out a 3 point victory despite losing their star running. Coach Bird after the victory said "The biggest surprise was the play of HB Murray, coming in after the injury to HB Cook, he finished with 13 carries 195yds and 2 tds. WOW! However, the biggest surprise was the play of the oline who paved the way for Murray. We thought our oline was going to be a weak spot for us this season, but they really had a gutsy performance this week. We are hoping this will be their normal play and not just an anomaly".

Not only was Coach Bird complimentary of his offense but he also issued a warning to teams playing the Packers in the coming weeks "We discovered that if you want to slow the Packers down, you are going to have to gameplan to stop TE Graham and WR Cobb. They were both nearly unstoppable, so watch out for them".

Despite being very complimentary about his team and excited for the win, Coach Bird still wanted to stress their team had to clean up some stuff before he would be happy and said "We have won our first 2 games and feel good about that, but both of them were close hard fought games. The biggest issue for us is cleaning up our turnover issue. If we can do that, then I feel really good about our season".

Looking forward at the Vikings next couple of weeks they can really cement their status as the dominant team in the NFC. In week 4 they play the ultra talented Rams and in week 5 they will have a chance to get revenge for their embarrassing NFC Championship loss. Here's to hoping these two games will be as good and close as this Packer/Viking game.

Lions off to a fast start despite roster turnover

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the Lions ended pre-season by replacing a quarter of their roster with new talent, everyone thought their roster was set for the year. After starting 2-0, Coach Chetty Twelve is still not satisfied with where the team is at and has traded veteran TJ Lang and struggling rookie Teez Tabor in two separate transactions that happened shortly after their week two game.

"In the off season, I said no ones roster spot is safe and we will continue to look to improve. We appreciate what Lang and Tabor brought to the table, but we felt it was necessary to get our best athletes on the field. I also want to make sure my team knows that the roster will have more changes in the coming days and they will have to keep working to keep their spot on the team".

With the practice squad signing period opening up next week, anticipate the Lions to continue to be very active with trying to improve their roster.

As for their week 2 game, the Lions got off to a fast start but turnovers by Matt Stafford helped let the 49ers sneak back into the game. Chetty Twelve when asked about his QB's performance said "There was some good, but all of that is thrown out with the turnovers. We can't keep having our team put us in great position only to have turnovers let the other team back into the game".

With the talk of the turnovers and roster changes by Coach Twelve, it's hard not to read between the lines that Stafford's seat is starting to get hot.

Texans vs Pats Week 1 Recap

The Houston Texans led by QB DeShaun Watson and DE J.J. Watt, met the New England Patriots led by QB Tom Brady this Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts. DeShaun Watson threw for 216 yards and 1 touchdown and Lamar Miller rushed for 193 yards and 2 touchdowns to lead the Texans to a 33-9 victory over the Patriots.

Watson completed 18 of 25 passes for 193 yards and connected with TE Ryan Griffin for his lone touchdown. Watson said he wasn’t satisfied with how he performed. “I don’t think we played anywhere near where our capabilities are” he said. “All of us probably look at the game and realize we could have done things better”. Watson, who missed the final 9 games of last season with a torn right ACL struggled to move the team in the first quarter but bounced back in the second half with the help of a strong running game and a stellar defense.

Lamar Miller ran 23 times for 193 yards and 2 touchdowns while D’Onta Foreman added 28 yards and a touchdown on 5 carries. It was a career game for Miller, as the veteran didn’t go over 75 yards rushing in any games last year. “Our O-Line did a tremendous job blocking all day and that created huge space for me to do my moves” Miller said. Coming into the season Offensive Line was the biggest concern for this team but they did a good job run blocking while allowing 4 sacks.

It was a quiet day for star WR DeAndre Hopkins as he manged only 10 yards on 1 reception. WR Bruce Ellington was the lead receiver with 87 yards while WR Will Fuller V added 51 yards. TE Ryan Griffin scored the only receiving touchdown in the game. Asked if there is any particular reason Hopkins was limited to just 1 reception Coach Born said “simply the game flow dictates that”.

On the Defensive side DE J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney both recorded a sack each and DB Tyrann Mathieu was a beast in the secondary. He finished the night with 4 tackles and a force fumble while playing a key role in limiting star TE Rob Gronkowski to 11 yards on 2 receptions. Newly acquired LB NaVorro Bowman also shined with 4 tackles and an interception in the red zone.

Next up for the Houston Texans is an away game at the Tennessee Titans before they come back for the home opener against the New York Giants.

Chiefs Week 1 Post Game Press Confernece

Coach , you got your 1st win as an NFL head coach. How does it feel?

It feels great. Anytime you get a ‘W” it’s a great feeling. And I am glad the first victory is out of the way and now I can just focus on just playing football.

Kareem Hunt had a career game with over 200 yards rushing and 4 touch downs. What do u think of his performance?

He was phenomenal. He was able to find holes all night, and even times where there weren’t much space he was able to bust thru for positive yards. It was a great show from the sidelines for sure

There wasn’t much of a passing game that was seen in this game. Was that by design?

No it wasn’t by design. It was dictated by the game. We were able to find holes and had success pounding the ball early on and we stuck with it. The passing game was just secondary to keep the defense honest.

Your defense was pretty good tonight, and few of the players especially Eric Berry and Chris Jones had a huge game. Can you elaborate on their performance?

Yeah I am pretty happy about our defense tonight, though we made some mistake and we need to improve. But its week1 and I am not worried. Yeah Eric had a huge game with 2 interceptions and he made several other key plays. Those interceptions were timely as well. We needed it to break their tempo. And Chris was phenomenal tonight. I mean, he put pressure on rivers all night and his 4 sacks were the result of that. The sack fumble and the recovery he made were tremendous as well. Forced turnovers will win you games, and tonight was an example of that.

You guys will be heading to Pittsburg for the week 2 matchup with the Steelers. What do you think of this match up?

Steelers are a great football team. They are extremely talented and well coached and I envision a really tough game. They play well at home and they can put up bunch of points in hurry. So this will be a huge test for our defense. But I am confident in our team and hopefully we can come out of there with a win.

Texans Preseason Report

Texans Head Coach Born – Week 4 preseason press conference

Preseason games are in the book. I think the guys played hard every game even though we lost some close ones. So, there’s plenty of things to learn from. Like i just told the team, I said any mistakes that we made during these games may show up three weeks from now in New York, or two weeks from now in Tennessee , so we’ve got to make sure we’ve got it all cleaned up so that we don’t make any of these mistakes again. Fortunately we escaped this preseason without any major injuries. This caps off training camp, and now we’ll get to the business of finalizing the roster. I’ll take your questions now.

Q. On that point about picking the roster, what can you share about your process?

We’re going to go cleanup tomorrow as coaches. We’ll have a meeting with the players and then typically, this is not new, the players will have some time off this weekend, and then we’ll get to the business of making cuts. That will happen this weekend.

Q. Justin Reid made a couple of really nice plays this preseason. What do you think about his performance?

He did a really nice job. I think he did a really good job when the ball was in the air. His first interception along the sideline shows his good awareness and the second one he undercut the route and did a nice job. He also had some big tackles. I would say he helped himself this preseason.

Q. Deshaun Watson looked rusty throughout this preseason. Is he 100% healthy?

I think he fell victim to some drops that would’ve made things look a lot better. He had some nice scrambles that kept drives alive. He was aggressive with his throws down the field, which we wanted to see. You can see he got good arm strength, which is good, and i thought he was pretty poised throughout the preseason.

Q. How do you think your team has adjusted to the new helmet rule?

I think we had adjusted well. We’ll just go back and look at each one and see why it happened. When we went through this helmet thing, it was said that these were the certain plays we want out of our game and those are pretty obvious. Some of the plays now, we’re getting flags that if those aren’t part of the game, I don’t know if we have a game. So, we’ve just got to see. We all want what’s right and what’s best for the players.

Q. With the preseason over now, do you feel pretty good about this team’s readiness for the regular season?

Absolutely. I feel like we’re on the right path. We played all the players through the preseason, so we’re not going to be guessing as to whether a guy can do it or not. We’re in a position now to pick that initial 53-man roster. We’re in a position to keep moving forward, and i feel good about the work we’ve done to this point. We need to keep practicing and hopefully we can stay healthy and continue to improve and be in a position to be in the playoffs.
