    I love it! CJ is a beast on the screen pass. I traded for Chad Johnson! VY is the man. Kearse is back as the Freak and White sucks on the game.

    I simmed the first season to try the draft and free agency and it sucked.

    Typical boring free agents, nobody really worth anything as usual, all the good players are always resigned. That's always bugged me. I think LeCharles Bentley was the best FA for me. I think it was Madden 04 where the players would get disgruntled and want to be traded, I wish they would do more with that.

    The draft has very poor AI as usual. I think I had 8 QB taken in the first round, mostly by teams who didn't need one (Sea Hawks, Jaguars, Dolphins, Browns, and Broncos) and honestly why is Tebow a 98 overall as a rookie? I mean NFL Head Coach has draft AI, why can't Madden? It's just so stupid, it's so easily fixable, just do it. Hey I love the new additions but I'd rather they fix the dull and stupid off season modes first. I mean players wanting to be traded and big free agents leaving teams happens multiple times in an off season but never in Madden. And seriously just because a teams backup QB only has a 79 overall doesn't mean a teams going to draft a QB in the first round! I mean this has been going on for years now and it's never been fixed, it's just so stupid to me.

    As for the gameplay I only played 1 game on All Pro and that was actually a little to hard for me. The gameplay is a lot faster than normal and you can't really draw back 10 yards with Young and run around like you used to. I like that because it should keep people from playing cheap online. But the gameplay is going to take some getting used to. The buttons you push during the game seem cool but again it's going to take getting used to. I also like the rewind feature because sometimes there's plays that I hit the wrong button on.. or a pass that was poorly thrown when it shouldn't have been.

    I only played 1 game online and one against the cpu last night. I have to admit that the gameplay was pretty good. It's not perfect, but seems to be a step in the right direction.

    I need to work on my running game for sure.

    They really did a nice job with the violent collisions this time around. You can almost feel them.

    Channing Crowder was the best free agent I had. Nobody big really changed teams. Every now and then in other Madden games you'll get a big name but it's not an every year type thing like in real life.

    I'm still in my first season. It's hard for me to get sacks.
