HTTR, thank you so much for finding that. I look all the time to see if there is something posted somewhere. The Skins are going to be great in the game, McCants at a 79 for a third receiver. You can immediatly trade brunell and one of the safeties fo ran end. its going ot be awesome.

what makes you think they got the shaft, I thik both of those are extremely generous. Dockery was quite possibly the worst guard in the league last year, bar none. He was stepping on people, loosing game. He showed signs of not messing up towards the end of the year, but nothign great. To give him a ranking in the 70's isnt bad, they are assuming that bugel teaches him how to use that monsterous body of his.

And 79 for a third receiver is pretty good. McCants caught the ball in the redzone last year, and was clutch for us at times but he wasnt out there breaking tackles and out running people. you pretty much didnt get much out of him unless he could score. Im also glad Jacobs is ranked as a 74, thats pretty good considering he didnt plya at all.

Wow, I forgot about thrash, hes ranked as an 81, so that means technically McCants is a 4th string receiver at a 79, with a fifth at a 74. Plus McCants and Jacobs can both go up in preseason. Acutally, im not sure how old McCants is. But I tell you guys that you should start Jacobs as your number 3 guy, and trade Thrash. Jacobs can go up for three preseasons still. Gardner can still go up for the first preseason. Between Thrash, mabye McCants, a safety and Brunell you should easily be able to pick up a good end.

or you can play cheap and sign guys like Jason Guildon taht are going to be ranked in the 90's and are still free agents in the game, then trade them. But my friend and I dont do that type of stuff. We are good enough at the game that we need challenges. Its tempting to not trade any players and run with the actual roster, which I might to. But there is so much depth at some positions that you really dont need. Apparently madden fixed it so palyers dont drop like 14 just because they didnt start. Its hard to get backups a lot of stats in the old maddens.

man, look at those numbers for Rock. Hes liable to be the best full back in the game. In terms of running atleast. Not great blockign numbers but there no reason why you cant hand the ball to rock on 4th and 1 instead of portis. Rock even has an 86 broken tackle rating. awesome.

only way he is that high is becuase he did well as a halfback, so at fullback, which are normally slower and not as good of runner, he excells.

Hes an excellent running fullback, but not a good blocker and his numbers do reflect that.

It's cool to hear all the ratings, thanks illdefined! The ratings seem so high that I may have to raise the difficulty level a notch. Finally, let me just say one more time, 'Rock Cartwright rated 86: mindboggling!!

well if you dotn do franchise mode of course you dont trade. Trading is a big part of franchise mode, becuase you are building dynastys, not just a one game team. You take a young guy over an old guy becuase he can go up more, and wotn retire anytime soon. The fantasy draft is fun, and essentially puts the whole league on par with each other, but I dotn do that until ive already done a few franchises with real teams.

Do you just do head to head games? I dotn ever play head to head, its a waste of time for me because if im going ot play a game i want it to count towards my season.

what level do you usually play at? I always play on all Madden, ill probably start madden 05 at all pro just to get used to the new things about the game. Im so glad Madden did so many things to make franchise mode better this year, because playing the game got kinda old. Recently, until 2k5 came out, all I did was simulated franchises because it was more gratifying. I knew if i played on all madden i wouldnt lose and win the super bowl. But with a simulated franchise you dont know anything. you have to have depth incase of injuries, becuase you dotn control anything. You hvae to set a playbook that fits the talent on your team. When you win superbowls on simulated franchises you are really proud.

Of course Madden this year also made it special to get to teh superbowl, and added special animations and whatnot for the'big game'. So thatll be neat to.

I just bought NFL2K5 for XBox. The skins are not that good, but Sean Taylor is unreal. I threw at him 3 times, and he made 3 picks in franchise mode.
