Madden sucks now. It went downhill after 2004. They can only add some new features to SStar mode. Maybe a Practice Squad as well and shoe endorsments.

These are my main gripes with Madden:

1. I want an expansion team mode. Similar to the one with the Texans in Madden 2002, except you could create a team and have an expansion draft when you start the Franchise Mode. It pisses me off that a team and all of its players just disappear when you want to play Franchise with a created team.

2. I want more realistic simulated stats. My favorite thing to do with Madden is play Franchise mode and simulate the seasons, and basically just run the team. Cornerbacks starting all 16 games and getting less than 20 tackles? Defensive ends starting all 16 and getting more sacks than tackles? Tight ends very, very rarely averaging over 10 yards a catch? That's just not realistic.

3. I want more realistic contracts; especially rookie contracts when you export a draft class. I should not be paying my third round pick $12 million over 4 years.

4. Why is it, when you're 5 or so years into a franchise, EVERY big name talent is a free agent? Come on, guys!

I'm not a stickler for gameplay, I think the gameplay is just fine. I want them to pay more attention to detail.

Good Pointers especially #4. Its also way to easy to sign big name guys if you are a good team. And Mini Campp can turn any crap player into a supestar. I once made Musa Smith an 87 in year 3

If its not Brees, LT, Taylor, Manning or a few other guys i will be upset. Maybe they will pick the best player on the SuperBowl Loser like 06 and 07. In this case Brian Urlacher. Unleess they think Hester is the best bear.

I've only dabbled in it since I don't have a console but I hear it's pretty good. That said, I don't think you can denounce the fact that Madden has consistently been a great game and it keeps getting better year after year. It's not perfect, but it's far more polished and realistic than the vast varities of titles out there. I wish I could play an NBA game other than NBA Live 07 but I'm stuck on PC unless I feel like shelling out $500 for an XBox 360 plus another $1000 or whatever for a HDTV.

True but if only They could take a few ideas from me. But I thin if Madden didnt pull a bi*ch move and buy all the rights to the NFLPA. "NFL 2k7" would be better.

Well i heard they are adding gang tackling for sure this year in the game so maybe im thinking it will eb a defensive player on the cover....if they add anything or even fix the Db controls and AI i think Champ is a shoe in for the cover and if not...maybe jason taylor or brian urlacher...the homer in me wants aaron schobel on the cover:)

Sadly the CBs are idiots in Madden Games. Thats why i always try to control my Mid LB or FS so that i can follow the blown coverages that CBs miss.

The madden games still need to rework the screen passes and swing pass routes, no receiver is going to run out of bounds on their route, and throwing a pass into the ground isn't a good idea for a screen.

Also i hate the way in X360, you can draft a #1 Overall Guy and he will be rated like a 70 oly. He will also be projected as top 5.

I hope in 3 years, or whenever that stupid agreement of exclusivity expires that 2K Sports comes back with MONSTER NFL games and maybe even an NCAA College Football game if they can find a way to implement the College Hoops recruiting method(one of the best ever), and maybe even a dynasty mode with the same idea.

Madden just isn't doing it for me anymore, but I play it because NCAA Football is just amazing and I'm a huge dynasty/franchise geek.

Okay so i know there are some madden buffs out there...and hten theres the casual madden players...but regardless how much you play there is something you hate or would like to add. Here is some of my ideas of features or things that could be put in to make the game more entertaining and pleasing..looking for as much input as possible.

1) Clutch/Choke rating - This would help the game extremly i think...say you have a great Qb during teh regular season(cough cough manning) and he alwayass chokes in the playoffs...say maybe this would affect his vision cone or maybe how the defenders read his passes or something along those lines..much like a guy liek tom brady..it hits the 4th quarter or the playoffs role around, he only gets better and i think there should be a rating to show that.
2) Expansion mode = I wanna be able to creat a new team..build a staduim and do all of that stuff. i want teh expansion draft and all the things just to give it an expansion feel
3) ANYTHING TO IMPROVE THE DB AI!!! - Champ bailey does not get burned by drew bennet he just doesnt... the ai is abismal and they have no idea what they are doing...the reciever has teh advantage and its impossible to play as both corners so your ****ed regardless... i dont wanan see my cornerback going for a catch 15 yarsd back form the widereciever...there should be a noticable difference between champ bailey and ahmod carrol!

i have a few more but im am currently having a huge brain fart, so ill post when i remember haha

All i want is fantasy draft. I use to love grabbing the low 70s high 60s that are young and try to win a super bowl. Its harder that way plus its more fun/insane. Fantasy draft was great cause you get to make your team your way. Also i wish there were more indepth with possitions like Slot Reciever and WLB compaired to a SLB or 3-4 OLB like a rating or something, its just TOO basic.

Yeah, I once got a guy with 99 speed, 48 acceleration, 99 throw power, and like 71 throw accuracy. He never saw the field after the 1st game because it felt rediculous playing with him. If they fix this problem I would be very happy because then I wouldn't have to be like the redskins and trade away almost all my draft picks in fear of getting unrealistic players.

Im not sure if you guys care or not, but I post at this forum which is formerly (maddennation.com) and they usually get information about the upcoming NCAA & Madden games really early. They have a article there about the first details about NCAA 08. Anyway you guys should give it a look. I've been posting there since 2003. So it's a pretty cool site. Alot of the guys from over there post here.
