Ramsey vs. Brunell

Just curious to see who most of you start at QB. I tried to start Brunell but have been finding Ramsey to be a little easier to play with. I am just getting the hang of madden (a converted....back....from 2k series). so maybe that has something to do with it....

Just wondering what you guys do

In my franchise, Ramsey beat out Brunell. He just played a little better. I think part of the reason is I wasn't used to playing with a lefty QB. Oh well.

Ramsey. As soon as Brunell starts bitching I trade his old cranky ass.

I simmed my first season and had Brunell set as the starter. For some reason Ramsey ended up playing the majority of the season and put up great numbers. Brunell wanted a trade so I gladly dealt him away. Ramsey is now in the high 90's.

I used Ramsey throughout my entire '04 franchise so I'm just more comfortable with him. I didn't even try a game with Brunell, the lefty thing would take some getting used too I'm sure.

I also simmed through my first season and Ramsey ended up finishing the season as the starter. We went 11-5, but lost to the freaking Giants in the playoffs. Now I just started my first offseason and Brunell was crying about wanting to be traded, so I did to Oakland. I got 3rd rounder for him and picked up a strong safety in the draft. Ramsey is now a 93 in my franchise, and Portis, Arrington, and Coles are all 99's.

simming a season with brunell leads me to 8-8 records (-/+ 1), with ramsey its usually 11-5... found that interesting (did 2004 about 30 times over)... portis seems to fracture his forearm 50% of the time too, which is REALLY annoying...

I re-signed and traded Ramsey away when his deal came up, I just got tired of playing with a QB who can't move.

I drafted a guy who has 88 speed and 85 acceleration, his arm strength is only a 77 and accuracy only a 79 but the guy can run like the wind. He's on pace for 1000 yards rushing and rookie of the year honors.

funny thing about Brunell, after my first year where I traded him away and simmed my first season, in season 2 I played against him in the Super Bowl, he took the Dolphins to the bowl and had good #'s too.

I traded Brunell and Iffy to San Fransisco for a Their 1st and 2nd round picks. Then in the offseason I traded my 1st round and San Frans 2nd round to the Bears for their 1st round pick. I signed Brackens and was able to move him in the offseason for another 2nd round pick. Then I was able to package my 2nd and the 2nd I picked up for another 1st round pick. I had 3 1st round picks in the top 20 and was able to draft Marcus Spears from LSU, a TE and a rookie CB that took over the kick return duties after I released Morton.

i've never had problems with a lefty QB...for some reason, when i create a team in NCAA, my QB is always left handed...so that doesn't bother me.

Ramsey beat out Brunell in the Preseason...my guess was against 2nd string defenses, I was able to pummel them in the air with P-Ram. I'm currently 10-0 (started the franchise back in August, but got distracted with NCAA, NASCAR and Tiger Woods to say the least), and P-Ram, Portis and Coles are 1-2-3 for MVP.

I'll most likely trade Brunell in the off-season, draft a QB in the late rounds and settle in.
