Madden

How many of you guys play Madden?  What year?  On what platform?

I don't have any gaming consoles so I play Madden 08 on my Macbook Pro. 

Some thoughts...

1.  Players progress way to fast.  Jason David, in 3 years, became my top corner.  

2.  It's fun trying to create the same offseason moves in the game.  I tried to trade for Vilma and they wanted more than what they got in real life.  I did get Shockey though. 

3.  When you play long enough (18 seasons) you can eventually get your players to become coaches.  I obviously got Brees to be the head coach. 

4.  If you defense is too good (as a group) the inviduals don't get recognized.  Because my defense has mutated over the many seasons into a supernatural group, they defend a lot of passes and create pressure situations where opposing offenses can't connect for a lot of passes.  What happens is, individual tackle totals go WAY down and highly ranked players end up with only 40-60 tackles for the year, and I can't get any of them on the ProBowl teams. 

5.  I wish the real Saints defense played like monsters.  In the game, my defense is more highly rated than my offense. 

Well, just felt like ranting while I wait for the clock to wind down at work.  Cheers!
