Post Building the Dolphins in Madden
Just got it Saturday and have gone through the initial first season a few times and found some things that have worked.

First off the game still has not learned how to properly deal with player ratings in a 34 defense and is very annoying. To get the most out of the Phins defense you HAVE to run a 43. The moves I made

Wake and Charlie Anderson to Defensive End
Langford, Odrick, and McDaniel to Defensive Tackle
Dansby to OLB
Reshad Jones to SS and Clemons to FS
Nate Garner from Tackle to Guard
Traded Ronnie Brown for a first and second round pick and maybe a 3rd or 4th
Traded Langford, Will Allen, and a 2nd or 3rd for first rounder
Traded a group of second and third round picks and maybe a player for another first rounder

Also a little trick to use if you ever need trade bait is to sign linebackers and change them to DE some of them improve dramatically

Changed my coaching philosophy to pass 70 percent of the time and I went 9 and 7 without playing a game and beat the Colts in a Wild Card playoff

During the offseason you have 4 first rounders and probably a second rounder to fill spots. This is what I did

Changed Misi to DE to upgrade Anderson
Drafted a Linebacker, Defensive Back, Offensive Line, Running Back, and WR

Both Clemons and Jones develop nicely so you don't have to draft a Safety. I usually take the best available either Safey or Cornerback if its absolutely necessary Smith can be moved to Safety.

And there you go your young talented team is ready to go!

Post Re: Building the Dolphins in Madden
yeah it's amazing what is possible in Madden... here's my moves on my new roster:

Trade Pennington to the Cards for a 1st and 2nd round pick.
Trade Ronnie Brown & a 7th Round Pick to Tampa for a 1st and 3rd round pick.
Trade Ricky Williams, a 5th round pick & a 6th round pick to the Patriots for a 1st and 3rd round pick.
Trade Will Allen and a 4th round pick to the Titans for a 2nd round pick.
Trade Yeremiah Bell and two 3rd round picks to the Bears for a 1st round pick.
Trade Jake Grove and a 3rd round pick to the Steelers for a 2nd round pick.
Trade two 2nd round picks to the Bengals for a 1st round pick.
Trade two 2nd round picks to the Jets for a 1st round pick. (multiple teams available)
Signed OLB's C. Brown and D. Burgess, converted both to DE
Traded D. Burgess to the Falcons for a 2nd round pick.
Released C. Geathers and Q. Moses
Signed WR Antonio Bryant, Center J. Hartwig, CB Shawn Springs, RB Willie Parker, RB D. Frisch, TE Ernest Wilford (everyone but Frisch signed a 1 year deal).
Traded three of my 1st round picks to the Packers for QB Aaron Rodgers.
Traded Chad Henne to the Packers for 2nd and 3rd round picks.
Signed QB Nate Davis and FB Tony Richardson.
Traded FB Tony Richardson to the 49ers for a 3rd round pick.
Signed FB O. Schmitt to a 3 year deal.
Released Roberto Wallace and signed WR Troy Williamson (KR & PR's)

So now my roster is extremely jumbled up, but I did a lot of moving around in the positions so here are my starters:

QB - Aaron Rodgers
RB - Willie Parker
FB - Lousaka Polite
WR - Brandon Marshall
WR - Antonio Bryant
WR - Davone Bess
TE - Anthony Fasano
LT - Jake Long
LG - Richie Incognito
C - Joe Berger
RG - John Jerry
RT - Vernon Carey

LE - Cameron Wake
RE - Jared Odrick
DT - Randy Starks
DT - Kendall Langford
LOLB - Karlos Dansby
MLB - Channing Crowder
ROLB - Koa Misi
CB - Vontae Davis
CB - Shawn Springs
FS - Chris Clemons
SS - Reshad Jones

I only have 3 people on the roster over the age of 30 (Springs, Hartwig, Wilford) and I now have the following draft picks as well:

Cardinals 1st Round Pick
Patriots 1st Round Pick
Bengals 1st Round Pick
Jets 1st Round Pick
Falcons 2nd Round Pick
Packers 2nd Round Pick
49ers 2nd Round Pick
Packers 3rd Round Pick

So 8 picks, and an already young team. Should be a great season! :)
