    I like the new kicking style.

    Titans OVR might suck, but the players work well for me. I'm deadly with Locker, CJ, Britt, and Cook. Defense struggles a little.

    Yea I have huge problems with our d line... Cook sucks in the game IMO. Drops all passes that are well defended no matter what. If he takes a hit as he catches the ball, he drops it. Everytime.

    I play with Hasselbeck. You think I'd be better off with Locker?

    I have been using both Hasselbeck as well as Locker. Depends on the way the defense is playing me and how our O-line is holding up. Plus if you switch halfway through the game it tends to open up the playbook a bit and confuse the opponent.

    Cook has been a beast for me. He is pretty much my safety blanket while playing. I can run him on short routes or spread him out wide and he dominates. My only issue with Cook is that he isn't that great at blocking for CJ but I'm having much better luck running CJ up the middle instead of having to go to the outside a lot like in past games.

    Our D-Line is horrible in this game. Cant seem to stop a solid run game unless I stack the box and blitz everyone. I have some luck with Jones just pushing people over but that can open a big hole for their RB to run through.

    Overall I am loving it though. Hopefully after we work the Jags in week 1 they will improve our team and some player ratings...

    That's not really saying anything. Ratings are obsolete, it's about whose using the controller.

    Let the sheep flock to the "best teams" as always --- an above average player can destroy them with a sub 70 team every time.

    I dunno man, I can't count how many times I have thrown the ball to a receiver and it gets dropped on 3rd down. Or a nano blitz that will cause your QB to fumble.

    I agree most of the time the player will win, but as long as that guy has played one season of Madden, he is going to have a clear advantage.

    I can assure you playing against Eagles even against a mediocre player is insanely difficult... And not because of Vick and Jackson. It's because they have three top 10 corners and passing on them is flat out tough.

    I'm not saying it's easy... just that a skilled player can pick one of the "worst" teams and still beat the idiots who play with the "cheesing" teams. And most people who choose those teams, suck at the game.

    That's the very reason I only play Madden with friends offline. I'd guess 5% play with their favorite team online? Everyone else just flocks to the all star teams. Philly, GB, NE will be the go to teams for now... last couple of years it was NE, Minnesota, Dallas, Indy... :sad2: Never ending cycle.

    If you want to run a dink and dunk Checkdown Charlie offense Hass is your man. His short accuracy is pretty good while his medium and long accuracy are not.


    Jake Locker has the more powerful arm and a good deep throw accuracy, so hes who i've been using with pretty decent success. I couldnt take playing with Hass and anything i throw over 10 yards hangs in the air forever leading to too many picks.



    I have the titans in a pretty competitive Online Franchise at another site i post at. Im going with Locker from Day 1. Im excited about that since this is about the 10th franchise ive been in with this community and its been since 05 ps2 since i had the titans.


    Britt and to a lesser extent Nate Washington are the only hopes you have of catching a ball in traffic with the Titans. Gage was slow as christmas but he made the tough catches. Ive been trying Mariani in the slot and unless he's wide open the catch isnt being made, you sneeze on him and he drops it. I guess its time for Damian Williams there now that Gage is cut. I just cant bring myself to make Hawkins anything more than 5th wr, hes small and slow not a good combo.

    Got screwed over by Madden last night. It was a tie game with 1:50 left and I held the other team to a punt. Their punt was going to land at my 3 yard line so I pulled all my players away from the ball and had no one even near it. Next thing I know it says "Oh and he drops the ball!" and the Jets take over at my goal line. Had zero players near the ball and didn't call for a fair catch or anything was just going to let it go out of end zone take it at the 20 and then make a drive for a field goal to win the game. Instead I got screwed over and they won. Not a huge deal I don't really care that much about my online rating just annoying after playing a good game for an hour to lose like that. Because it was under 2 minutes couldn't challenge or anything attempted to use a timeout to see if the booth would review but they didn't. Anyone else had this or something similar happen to them?

    Still a great game just the first time I have ever been screwed over that bad in any Madden game since N64...
