Re: Madden 10 reviews

anyone make it to the second year yet? i have huge roster salary cap problems. luckily i signed JC to a modest 3 yr 10 mil K right before the 09 season.

to make the cap in 2010 i had to resign a ton of players (AH wasnt willing, actually wanted a ton more money), cut as much depth as possible then sign the lowest asking salary price of FAs to fill the required roster spots.

kinda sucks to have to gut your roster of all the quality depth. luckily i didnt need to sign any top 10 draftees, i dont even want to know what they are askin.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

Yupp I got to my second year. My friends and I did a franchise year, in one day lol. We each took a team in the NFC EAST. They got a bunch of decent players and were F'ed in the cap the next year. I took a more balanced approach and i was still kinda f'ed.

I basically had to do the same things.

1. Resign some players to longer, cap relieving contracts. (If it don't help the cap don't do it)

2. Take out the trash and cut every depth position player not worth the money you are paying them.

3. Re build your depth with low budget, but quality free agents.

4. Get what you really want in the draft.

I began my cap saving moves in my first season though. I traded away CP for a 1st rounder and cut ARE. It hurt a little the following offseason, but I got my salary cap back under control by doing the things I mentioned above. Next offseason I might have to extend some contracts again for cap relief, but eventually I will free myself of this cycle.

Wow you guys have a lot of time on your hands. I just don't have that kind of time to devote to the game, back in the day, maybe but still there were other things I wanted to do.

ya know, the all caps, i might get that, you being excited and all, but WHY in the WORLD would you spell out FITTY? clearly you know where the 1, 2, and 3 are on the keyboard, the 5 and the 0 are so close to there, it's like you could reach out and touch them.

I play 1 game a day on weekdays. An hour a day isn't that much. On some weekends I may play a few games if I don't have any plans, then other weekends like the one that just passed I will not even touch my games.

On a side note. I cannot wait and see how well the player development plugin works.

Is this coming out in the update? Is there a link I can read about what it's all about?

I don't keep my PS3 connected to the internet, I usually plug it up about 1-2 times a month to get the updated rosters and then take it back upstairs to the HDTV.

Don't the PS3's have built in WiFi? You could keep it connected upstairs.

Also if it doesn't, you could use your laptop as a wireless adapter. Search on YouTube, there are a ton of easy instructional videos. I do this for my xbox 360, and it works great.

It's actually an add on that you have to pay additional for. It is supposed to help your players progress faster and better ala Adrian Peterson. You can only use it in Franchise modes.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

Anyone notice in the week 1 update they have Mike Williams on the roster but the pic is totally not him.

Anyone have an online franchise with any openings going on the 360?

Re: Madden 10 reviews

played against teh colts and peyton manning for the first time last night and wholly hell does the game make him just like he is in real life. freakin no huddle offense at any time, adjusting his lineman and TE blockers after he reads your blitz, ability to get the ball off a split second before he gets tackled, i won barely but he had me in fits for the first 3 quarters. he would even do fake snaps with the screen suddenly pulling up as if the ball was snapped, or sit there and not hike the ball at the same count, sometimes we would be at teh line forever.

it was alot of fun.
