Major Madden 2005 issue

Well, not major.

Has anyone given thought to the idea of playing with a left-handed quarterback in the game? The scrambling is different, I'll have to watch a different blindside...

I wish someone had consulted me before making this deal.

I've used Vick here and there and having a lefty takes a little getting used to.

If, for the purpose of authenticity I start Brunell, it's going to affect my awesomeness. I demand answers from Cerrato!

I've been playing Madden 2004 since Nov. 03 & I've just started my 4th season. So many players have retired, moved on, or just got to pricey.

Skins still on the team:

QB - Ramsey
HB - none
FB - Bryan Johnson, ROCK!
TE - none

O-Line - Samuels, Dockery, Jansen

D-Line - Zellner, Upshaw
D-Back - Bailey, Smoots, Ohalete, Bowen, Bauman, & Arrington.

Key F/A signings:

QB - Brad Banks (great speed with his feet, poor strength in his arm)

HB - Travis Henry, Dominick Davis (Traded Trung & a 2nd rd pick for Henry, got Henry at his rookie low price salary. Resigning is gonna be impossible ($30 mil 6 yr asking. So I drafted a HB (Pleasant) with my other 2nd rd pick I collected in another veteran move.)

WR - Calico (It's his 1st season in DC & in Preseason he really turned some heads with his blazing speed & great hands..!) Otherwise, I have kept the same WR that OBC assebled. Jacobs has developed nicely, & Mccants has become my slot monster. Coles burns almost any DB on a post. Usually run him on curls & slants, LB can't cover his cuts.

O-Line - Woody (He's was a tough player to acquire, but he's been worth the price. I was just about to deal him off after 2 seasons, but I realized I had no real backup to fill his position, so I drafted a true center with my 3rd pick in the draft & when Woodys' contract is up 'Lopps' will replace him, thus saving money & cutting cap costs.

D-line - no one really special (3-4 D only requires 1 DT)

D-Backs - Trotter was dealt due to salary cap issues, so I picked up Al Wilson who has been incredible against the pass, against the run he's been okay. Armstead was released this last offseason & replaced by a 2nd year player Lee Robinson (Madden 2004 generated player) Robinson has talent, but is still developing. His ability as a run stopper thrusted him into my starting line up. So far he's living up to his abilities.

K - Hall (he just gets better season after season Thanks Jets)

P - Hanson (I brought him in during F/A signings & he's great, but age has started to deplete his power & accuracy.)

There's my Madden 2004 experience so far, loving every min, hour, & day my wife doesn't bitch at me to shut that damn game off..!! LOL

Questions I have:
Has anyone had to deal with major HoldOuts yet...? (I have had a few & they have really screwed up my cap usage.)

Also, has anyone had to deal with Cap penalties yet...?
I screwed up last season & got nailed with a 5.24 mil cap penaly. OUCH!! Luckily I was rebuilding a few positions so I was signing backs & rookies, so the blow caused only minimal damage. I'll have to wait till next season to sign a F/A 5 star DT.

To be cont......

what about Ray Lewis or has he been the cover player before or how about tom brady? I bet there is a slight chance though that it might be Portis 2 unfortunately.

Yeah. I've been hearing Lewis or unfortunately maybe even Portis. Gil Brandt of NFL.com says that Larry Fitzgerald has been offered a bunch of money to be in the game, http://www.nfl.com/draft/story/7104324, but I don't think he means on the cover itself?

What about McNair?

does anyone else who has played or owns madden 2004 hope they make signing players more flexible? where as players are willing to restructure contracts or contracts that r back loaded, you can't do any of that in madden. plus some of the crappier players demand starter money especially qbs, rbs, and wrs.
