    Just completed the first year of my Titans franchise.

    Hasselbeck play 10 games (went 4-6), and then he got hurt. So, I put Locker in for the final 6 games (went 4-2).. finished with the record of 8-8. I play on All-Madden, give me a break.

    On offense I was fine, actually ranked 9th in Offense. But I struggled on D, ranked 27th... Couldn't stop ANY pass attacks. I used the exact Titans roster, lost Finny for 3 weeks due to injury and replaced Hope with Babineaux Week 5. When Finny was lost I played Griff at CB, used Hope/Babineaux at safety. I also lost Damian Williams for the year, Washington for 1/2 the year, and Roos seemed to get hurt every game. Since D-Will and Washington were ALWAYS hurt, I used Mariani a ton as my #2.

    Here's some stats:
    Hasselbeck (10G): 2,004 P. Yards, 11 TDs, 6 INTs
    Locker (6G): 1,492 P. Yards, 8 TDs, 2 INTs, 158 R. Yards, 1 R. TD
    CJ2K (16G): 1774 R. Yards, 15 TDs (2 REC TDs/13 RUSH)
    Britt (14G): 987 Yards & 9 TDs
    Cook (16G): 840 Yards & 4 TDs
    Mariani (16G): 742 Yards & 1 TD. Also had 2 K. Ret TDs
    Morgan: 12 Sacks
    Ayers: 68 Tackles & 7 Sacks
    Jones: 7 Sacks
    Klug: 4 Sacks
    Ruud: 94 Tackles (team high)
    Griffin: 62 Tackles, 7 INTs (team high)

    Griffin, CJ2K, Mariani (returner), and Stewart made the Pro-Bowl.
    CJ2K won O.POY.
    Ayers was 3rd in D.ROY.

    So, I uploaded my NCAA '12 Draft Class. Titans had the 14th pick. I was scouting a ton throughout the year, and really had my eyes on a S, LB, WR. More specifically Vontaze Burfict, Blackmon/Jeffery, or Barron... all were projected 'Top-10'. Lucky for me Blackmon fell to #14 so I could pass up. His stats are legit: 79 overall, 91 speed, 94 acc, 86 catch, 98 jump, 91 spec catch, AWR is a 50. 2nd Round I went safety, and Ray Ray Armstrong was there. He's projected to go 1st/2nd in real life, was projected 2nd/3rd in Madden.. so I took him. He also is decent with a 75 overall, 81 speed, 88 acc, 70 tkl, 90 hitpower, AWR is a 55. 3rd round I went CB to add additional depth, it was just some auto-generated rookie that I didn't scout and ended up sucking. 4th and 5th round were both DEs.

    Free agency rolls around then only note worthy player I pick up is Mike Tolbert. I spent most of my money on resigning Titans. Basically everyone was resigned but Ball and Hope.

    And finally, my favorite thing happens... PROGRESSION.
    Locker: 74 -> 79
    Ayers: 72 -> 80
    Klug: 67 -> 75
    Casey: 70 -> 75
    Mariani: 70 -> 75
    Cook: 76 -> 79
    Britt: 86 -> 90
    CJ2K: 96 -> 98
    Campbell: 64 -> 71

    Basically everyone on my OL stayed the same, but Roos went down -2. Hasselbeck went down -2. Jason Jones went down 1. Babineaux went down 3.

    I now am going into Year 2. With Locker, being much more accurate with a solid WR rotation of Britt - Blackmon - Mariani - DWill (Washington was cut). He can also hand it off CJ2K and Tolbert. DL is bulking up with a nice 3 man rotation at DT with Smith, Klug, and Casey. DE depth is a little weak. Ayers is a monster now. My secondary hopefully steps up. Hopefully I'll win the SB this year!

    Why do you not have one? It came with a code inside the case.

    Probably bought it used for $50 and doesn't want to spend the extra $10 to get a new code.

    I don't know why anyone would willingly give away their code, though....

    Cook is amazing on this game. Run him down the middle and put a little air under the ball so the amazing jumping linebackers can't knock it down,(which gets extremely annoying) get about 20 yards everytime. He averages about 110 yards a game for me

    I've only had a chance to play 4 games so far. Overall I'm really liking it but it obviously still has its issues. Injuries in franchise are far too severe. I'm gonna try lowering the injuries slider. Hopefully that will help.

    Also, is anyone else having an issue with the CPU dropping easy picks? I've thrown SEVERAL bad passes with Hasselbeck that hit the defender in the chest/hands and they just drop it. These are DBs too. I have 9 TDs and 0 INTs through 4 games with Hass. I should have at least 4 or 5 INTs by now. Again, this is something that can probably be remedied with slider adjustments. But it gets old having to "fix" the gameplay year after year after year. I seriously don't know what the Madden developers do with their time.

    And the fact that we're still referred to as the New York Titans is completely inexcusable. It was inexcusable last year and it's 10x more so this year.
