Brandon Fields (92)
Reshad Jones (92)
Mike Pouncey (89)
Brent Grimes (89)
Tyson Clabo (89)
Randy Starks (88)
Philip Wheeler (87)
Mike Wallace (87)
Paul Soliai (85)
Dannell Ellerbe (84)

Also, on a side note, here is a hilarious commercial for Madden 25:

I did a google search and it took me to a message board where a guy makes them by request.

http://www.operationsports.com/forums/m ... ad-26.html

There are other similar places with people making them. I will look around for more, or you could post a pic on that board with a request.

Operation Sports is the #1 source of anything Madden... or sports games in general.

Great strategies there too.

That Tannehill cover is sick.

We all went over this about a month ago. There was debate about the NFL Ticket part of the package. Some argued that you were only eligible to get a discount IF you purchased the NFL ticket. Others thought you could get NFL ticket for the extra $40.

The description was quite vague. I'm in the camp that Amazon and EA are opening themselves up to false ad and fraud lawsuits if the product is not a legit combo of the game PLUS 1 year of NFL Ticket on your computer.

We'll see.

Since Madden has released, anyone buy it yet? I stopped buying after Madden 12, it's just freaking awful. You have no choice of where the QB throws the ball besides pressing some letters and letting it fly. Is Madden 25 any better?

I received my copy of Madden 25 in the mail today with the DirecTV pass and everything works fine! It just sucks that it requires flash which immediately gets rid of my iPad which was what I was hoping to use!!!

Received it yesterday and all systems are a go for DirecTV. First time in my life I'll be able to watch every single Dolphins game live.

Regarding the game itself, seems like a bit of a downgrade in graphics and play control. Passes are easier to complete but its also easier to get intercepted. Going to take some getting used to.

Our Depth Chart is all sorts of whacked out... and of course Madden still doesn't allow you to change a darn players position soooo yeah.

We have Thomas as our starting RB with a 75 (?), and Miller behind him with a 72
Charles Clay is our starting FB.
The TE's are: Dustin Keller, Dion Sims, Evan Rodriguez, Kyle Miller, John Denney
Tyson Clabo is the starting LT... thankfully.
John Jerry is not very highly rated... high 60s I think.
Jared Odrick has a 61 overall at DE ... and only a 72 at DT
Vaughn Martin has a ridiculously high overall at like 81
Richard Marshall is still on the team and the 2nd CB with an 81 or something like that.
Dmitri Pattersons overall is terrible.
Reshad Jones and Chris Clemons make a nice combo.
Dan Carpenter has a much higher overall than Caleb Sturgis... though I still cut Carpenter.
Marcus Thigpen is our only return option... so dont get him hurt... and hes rated higher than Gillislee at RB
There's some WR on the roster I've never heard of and he's better than Tyms, Fuller and I think one other guy.

Is that only available if you play online?

If you don't update the rosters the biggest question is whether or not to play with Keller (fanatsyland) or trust your other guys. They actually make Egnew and Sims decent receiving targets.

It's unfortunate that there are no other games out there with an NFL license to produce football videogames. Madden blows. Garbage.

I was wrong... you DO NOT need an Xbox Gold membership to update your roster... you can do it with just a regular internet connection.

Madden is a fantastic game... while I wish they had competition so they'd work to improve it more each year... saying it blows is just a jaded view of an otherwise amazing franchise.

It could be a lot better though. No real improvement year to year.

FIFA blows it away.

Everyone says that but I find Fifa to do the same thing... I bought Fifa 12 and Fifa 13... not a huge difference. It's a fun game, yeah, but I'm not seeing anything mind blowingly different that would make it that much better than Madden.

ps - love the new team relocation feature in Madden. Did a fantasy draft with the Browns and relocated them to LA to become the Aftershocks!
