I finally had enough time to sit down and get my franchise going last night after watching the Ducks almost get roasted by Houston. So anywho with difficulty settings on a notch below the max setting these are my results:

(Note: I signed Freddie Mitchell & Ty Law to a 5-year and 1-year contract. Promptly traded Price back to the Bills for a 2nd & 5th round pick. Then sent Duckett/Dunn to Chicago for Benson and a 3rd & 4th round pick)

Vick: 14/20 for 220 Yards & 3 TD's (46 rushing & 3 sacks)
Benson: 185 yards rushing & 2 TD's, 15 yards receiving & 1 TD
R. White: 158 Yards receiving & 1 TD
Patrick Kerney: 5 Sacks, 1 FF, 1 Fumble Recovery for a TD
Ty Law: 2 Interceptions both returned for TD's

Held McNabb to 56 Yards passing, 1 INT, and 6 Sacks
Westbrook & Buckhalter managed a whole 11 yards rushing

Final Score: 68 to 0 Atlanta

Wouldn't that be nice?

*I did notice one major difference in this years game. If you get the run game going Vick is unstoppable in the play action play. In most cases, assuming half the defense didn't come free I had a good 5 to 10 yard gap after rolling out of a PA.

I must first ask what difficulty setting was this on? Doesn't seem like an All-Madden situation to me... :wink:

The best move you can make on Madden is to trade Brady Smith for Shawn Merriman and make him a DE. Out-of-the-box Merriman is a 95ish overall as a DE. I used him for an entire season at end (before I switched to a 3-4) and he got 28 sacks, on all-madden difficulty. Also I went out and got Igor Olshansky whose been a beast at DT for me. I think I actually got both of the for Smith and maybe a 2 or 3 pick.
