View Full Version : Detroit Lions: "What the Ford is up"? Madden Franc

09-09-2006, 08:44 PM
I have chosen the Detroit Lions as the franchise I would like to rebuild after conducting a poll which ended in a 9 way tie.

Now that I have chosen the team, I wish to continue to keep this franchise interactive by allowing you guys the opportunity to choose one player 85 overall or better for me to trade for. Some areas we may want to look at are Free Safety, Quarterback, Right Tackle, or a good linebacker(ours are average). I will post a poll, if you feel like you have a better idea select other and state the player you want.

Favre4
09-09-2006, 08:49 PM
If you think I should trade for a player other than the ones listed, please just post your opinion.

Reggie, Vernon, or Sean, all are young so you can build around them, what kind of offense are you going to run, because Vernon is good in a WCO.

Vince Lombardi
09-09-2006, 08:53 PM
what are you trading?

Favre4
09-09-2006, 08:54 PM
well I would be trading whatever it takes within reason to get the player that is selected. I will be looking to run a Play Action offense based off of a strong running game.

well I would be trading whatever it takes within reason to get the player that is selected. I will be looking to run a Play Action offense based off of a strong running game.Based on that, I would pick up Vernon Davis as he would be the perfect target in a pa offense and would fill an area of need.

You should get a QB then, as that's one of Det's biggest needs. Get Eli Manning

Favre4
09-09-2006, 09:12 PM
well im going to let this go for a few minutes then if there is still a tie, i will break the tie. im writing down the eli manning vote. i will only be trading for one player above 85 overall, i will then let you guys post on what player below 85 overall i should trade for.

Reggie, hands down. He got over 3500 yards for me as a rookie. Also 34 TDs.

draftguru151
09-09-2006, 09:34 PM
This could have gone in the madden thread.

Sean Taylor or DeAngelo Hall, but Reggie is tempting.

ccB
09-09-2006, 09:36 PM
You got a young back with Kevin Jones so i wouldnt go reggie. VD or Deangelo would be my option because you can draft Laron Landry at FS. When importing draft classes theres not usually any great TE's and Deangelo is just a beast. Since your the lions id think about going QB.

Well if he is doing a interactive franchise in this thread it wouldn't have made sense to put this in the official madden thread.

Twiddler
09-09-2006, 09:46 PM
Since you are going with the play action offense I think you gotta have a stud TE and that's why I voted for VD.

Favre4
09-09-2006, 09:49 PM
please just vote, im sorry for wasting a thread.

vernon davis is a beast in madden, i know as i am a niners fan and i play with him all of the time.

Favre4
09-09-2006, 10:02 PM
well im gonna finish my pizza and barring a big push for someone else it looks like i will start my franchise and trade for vernon davis.

Favre4
09-09-2006, 10:09 PM
well now that i am going to trade for my player above 85 overall what one player should i trade for under 85 overall. i can give you guys a few names but first let me trade for davis to see if we need to fill any holes.

Favre4
09-09-2006, 10:18 PM
well i have made the trade and this is what it comes out to:

Lions Get:

TE Vernon Davis
3rd round draft pick


49ers Get:

LOLB Boss Bailey

rainbeaukid2
09-09-2006, 10:21 PM
you should have tried to get pary haralson and a draft pick along with vernon davis for boss bailey, that way you dont have a big gap to fill at LB

Favre4
09-09-2006, 10:26 PM
well we could sign jaime sharper, he is a free agent

ccB
09-09-2006, 10:36 PM
I did a franchise with the 49ers. Vernon is a beast. Faster than alot of WR's.

rainbeaukid2
09-09-2006, 10:52 PM
manny lawson is a beast also, the greatest thing was when my corner got beat deep and manny came out of nowhere to save the TD, of course they scored later that drive but that is beside the point :D

He is a freak. He is dominate in madden, DROY in my franchise when I don't even use him, had like 110 tackles and 8 sacks, 3 ints. Pretty nasty.

VD is pretty much guaranteed to be a 99 after like 2 seasons on madden, he may be overrated but he has like 92 speed, you don't trade a TE like that away. You are nuts.

And he is sure is overrated in real life, I mean he only scored today while breaking like 3 arm tackles. :roll:

And his blocking isn't bad, just unpolished.

Favre4
09-11-2006, 05:47 PM
i think for me to really start this i need about 5-10 guys to follow and vote on the topics i post. like what players i should trade for, trade away, and draft. if i can get 5-7-9 or 10 guys to follow i will really put alot of time into this.

Crazy to trade him away. He is not overrated at all....sub 4.4 40 deserves over 90 speed. Like DG said yesterdays game showed how overrated VD is........ :?

i am still looking for a few more guys to join but we will be starting this now.

draftguru151
09-11-2006, 08:43 PM
Hmm cards are a young team but have a good amount of talent, I would go with San Fran if you want a real challenge, and VD and Lawson are two good players to build around.

09-12-2006, 02:44 PM

try for a DT, OLB, CB or maybe RB cuz barlow and gore arent very good in the game

Favre4
09-12-2006, 03:59 PM
sweet. as you guys may know barlow was traded so gore is our only good runningback.

ive got a crazy idea, try to trade eric johnson for brandon jacobs and a draft pick. just an idea. probably not a good one. just let me know one way or another.

we might also be able to trade for a guy like reggie bush. we also have a center that can be traded. he is high 80s, but hes old and we have one young guy who nearly as good, and david bass who is very young and could be a good developmental guy.

If you do my trade, you could live with your Starting Cb for this season and draft one during the draft with one of your two 1st round picks, and do the same with FS. then sign a speed back, till you can draft one later on.

09-12-2006, 09:42 PM
Trade Eric Johnson, Jeff Ulbrich, and your 3rd round pick for the lions 1st, 5th, and 6th.

thats true.

Favre4
09-13-2006, 10:12 AM
Heres The Deal:

so we are trading Johnson, our center(depending on how long hes injured) and our 3rd round pick for detroits 1st,5th,and 6th round picks.

so do we want to pick up anyone from free agency. i will post some likely cantidates at about 12:30 when im done with class. one would be will peterson i think his name is. hes a corner whos 27 years old and like 85 overall but i will have the real numbers for you at around 12:30

Build a 3-4 defense around Joey Porter. They made him real good, and you start with a pass rusher. Your 2nd pick should be Casey Hampton. Then you have pass and run on lock.

Build your D first, then your O. On offense, just build a strong oline and have a good power back with speed like a Fred Taylor, and the rest will take care of itself.

But remember, pass rusher first, NT second to stop the run, Rb 3rd. Thats how you build a good Madden franchise.

looking back on this list i dont think it would be a bad idea to pick up veterans like:

FB Fred Beasley(we have no starting caliber FB)
DT Dan Wilkinson(our current DTs like to get pushed around)
LOLB Jamie Sharper(hes a stud in a position that we are below average)

with that said i think we could add a few other guys as young depth to develop, or a few to step into a starting role. here they are:

LG Fred Matua,73,22(depth)
MLB Chris Claiborne,83,28(especially if we are trading Smith)
CB Williams Peterson,85,27(starter)

Tyrone Calico as a slot Wideout could be nice, also if you are planning on still running 3-4 defense Dan Wilkinson would be a good pick up, and another decent and cheap vetran MLB if you do the trade. Also adding Fred Matua would be nice, but IMO you should sign a vetran FS, instead of a CB.

i would sign a veteran FS but the best one is only 82 overall. our secondary is slow so they keep getting beat when i play with the 49ers in play now games so i dont think it will be much of a different story in a franchise. peterson is a strong cb that could add some aggressiveness. he is a better upgrade over our current starter at corner than a veteran FS would be, he is also younger.

should i stay with the 3-4 or should i go to a 4-3 or 4-6. i get a great pass rush with the 4-6 but get beat deep on occasion. with the 4-3 our defense is probably most consistent and in the 3-4 occasionally i get slashed with a 10 yard run up the middle, but am unable to consistently get a pass rush with our current personel. dan wilkinson should help that.

Who we want to sign:

DT Dan Wilkinson
LG Fred Matua


i think another solid addition for our young and below average starting back would be fred beasley. let me know what you guys think. chris claiborne would be a good upgrade over tj slaughter if we do decide to trade ulbrich or smith.

heres the questions i have for you guys:

do we trade erich johnson, ulbrich and a 3rd rounder for detroits 1st, 5th, and 6th rounders?

do we sign fred beasley?

do we sign williams peterson?

do we sign jamie sharper?

do we sign tyrone calico?

I think you should do that trade and run a 4-3 defense, and just sign Dan Wilkinson. Calico would be a good slot wideout, i don't know about beasley, i don't think you need peterson, you can live with your starting CB till the offseason and the draft.

depending on the cap room, sign Wilkinson, and Sharper to one year deals, cause they are old...

alright i guess we will go without peterson. i think we will be throwing about 50 times a game if we dont sign beasley. we do have brandon williams from wisconsin who is a rookie and already better than calico. hes fast too. i will probably wait til tonight to do these transactions cause i have to work in a little while.

09-14-2006, 06:27 PM
i would sign sharper wilkinson and beasley
