Hello gamers, and welcome back!

We had our Twitch Tuesday on a Wednesday this week due to sickness, but we still had a great time figuring things out with our all-MAC Madden 19 squad, the Columbus Aviators!

We established our offensive philosophy (run and shoot, using Sean McVay’s playbook) and defensive philosophy (base 4-3, using Frank Reich’s playbook,) and established our starters at every position.

Without further ado, the rosters!

Our offensive line-up:

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Logan Woodside Copper Rush
Running back Branden Oliver (PWRB) Thomas Rawls (3DRB) Bronson Hill
Wide receiver (outside) Antonio Brown Corey Davis Jr. Willie Snead IV
Slot receiver Julian Edelman Kenny Golladay Tajae Sharpe
Left tackle Joe Staley
Left guard Josh Sitton Jon Greco
Center Josh Kline Greg Mancz
Right guard Brandon Brooks Isaiah Williams
Right tackle Eric Fisher Chuks Okorafor Willie Beavers
Tight end Michael Roberts Tyler Conklin Mason Schrek
Fullback Roosevelt Nix Nick Bellore (MLB)

Our defensive lineup:

Left end Khalil Mack
Defensive tackles Leterrius Walton (LE) Cap Capi Casey Sayles
Right end Muhammed Wilkerson Richard Ash (DT) Pat O’Conner (DT)
Left outside linebackers Jayrone Elliot Freddie Bishop Justin Currie
Middle linebackers Nick Bellore
Right outside linebackers Jatavis Brown Justin March-Lillard Keion Adams
Cornerbacks Rashaan Melvin TJ Currie Darius Phillips
Slot corner Quinten Rollins
Free safety Jahleel Addae Mike Mitchell Rolan Milligan
Strong safety Jimmie Ward (FS/SLCB) Kavon Frazier (SUBLB/SLCB)

And finally, our special teams:

Kicker Matt Prater (KOS) Brett Kern
Punter Brett Kern Matt Prater
Kick returner Darius Phillips Branden Oliver
Punt returner Julian Edelman Darius Phillips
Long snapper Ryan Smith (TE) Isaiah Williams (RG)

Thankfully, we suffered no injuries in the preseason, so we carried a 53-man roster going into the first game of the season! We played two games in the regular season: one player-controlled, and one on full simulation, to watch and see if there were differences. (Spoiler alert: there was.)

The games were hard-fought and wrought with drama, to say the least. Here’s the entire, unedited episode for you to see the results of our little experiment get off the ground:

We’ll also cut up a 30-minute review for later exclusively on Twitch in case you need to catch up quickly.

Next week, we face regular season games #3 and #4 and scout our imported draft class, which is filled to the brim with real-life MAC stars! Be sure to follow us on Twitch to get a push notification whenever we go live. If you miss us live, we’ll be sure to have a recap up the following day here on Hustle Belt proper.
