Madden actually looks pretty sweet this year. Looks like the finally listened to the hardcore long time fans and put all their time and effort into improving game play, AI, and quality of life stuff. New collision system with over 100 new tackle animations is suppose to get rid of any buggy nonsense and factor in players size and strength. (great for Bradford and Blount) You can make your own playbooks on offense and defense. Offline franchise got some love. Defensive AI supposedly got a complete over haul. You can pump fake to specific receivers now to draw the secondary in the direction you want. There is five different running styles to fit different types of players. The football has it's own physics, so no more going threw heads and torsos like a ghost. Bunch more too. Check it out if you haven't yet. Sounds great!

I don't go there. Too much political and religious extremist rhetoric for me.

If it makes you feel better.....I think Clayborn and Bowers will both be 80s. There, now it's Buccaneer related.  ;D

I would compare :

Clayborn to Derrick Morgan or Tyson Alualu?
Bowers to Carlos Dunlap
Foster to Navarro Bowman
Stocker to Dennis Pita or Michael Hoomanawanuwi?
Black to ???

Ahmad Black and Gaitor are both Ronde Barber clones. Not saying either will be as good as Barber has been, but it's what they should strive for. They are all built the same and play similar. I'm glad Black and Gaitor will have a year with Barber to learn as much as possible from him.

I meant to ask people to compare our rookies to rookies from last year. So we could get an idea of what their ratings could be.

oh...gotcha

They always just go by the round they were drafted, so I'm sure Clayborn and Bowers will be around 80, Foster will be low 70s, Stocker will be mid to high 60s, and the rest will be low 60s and high 50s.

If the lockout is still ongoing when Madden is released, EA should lock the game until its lifted.

Just to piss off all the gamers.

Bowers and Clayborn are going to be like 78 speed. I need at least an 84.

I wonder if they'll go off Ahmad Black's game speed in college, or his 40 time and the combine. If the go off game speed he'll have 85 speed, if they go off his 40 time he'll get 70 speed and be useless.

GMC is a stud on that game. But, I already know for me stop Vick I'm going to need some fast DE's. I already know some idiot is going to cheese the game with Cam Newton.

This is a bit off topic, but couldn't the players argue against being in Madden this year?

I've noticed before that Belicheat's image isn't in the game.  Couldn't the players pull a similar move?
