That site took a little while to load.

Not sure about the new passing, will def take some getting used to...graphics may have topped out until PS3, not bad though.

Can't wait to see what else has changed. B-)

That passing cone idea sounds awful. :-/ Peyton Manning can see the whole field whilst Carson Palmer can only see a few yards? If anything it makes it more unrealistic.

I feel mixed. While it does make the impossible idea of running with your back to the LOS and then bulleting one immediately, it might overcomplicate the game.

Maybe I'm the minority, but I think this passing cone thing will be a plus. I hate the fact that you can just take Micheal Vick, and while scrambling right, you can just blindly make bullet throw completions. Now you actually have to pause a second, face left, and then throw. More realistic IMO. I think that this passer cone will be an imrovement.

And yes, a vet QB like Peyton Manning is going to see the field A LOT better than a new QB like Carson Palmer or Eli Manning.

it definately over-complicates things, however dont fear for carson palmer because madden will always overrate him...

I'm with Meshawn on this one I like this new Passing cone. To me I think it will seperate alot of players the days of you're buddy who barely plays madden but can still compete with you because he has Mike Vick running all over the field then throwing perfect passes are gone. This will just take more skill to be a petter passer. Im looking foward to this

I think the cone will be cool. I always hated the guy who would just scramble around and make a break like he was going to run for it. Then once he got over the LOS, the cover people would start to come off their guys and then the guy would just run backwards over the LOS and toss one up to whoever. I also hated that people could just keep scrambling around deeper and deeper into the backfield while your slow ass linemen try to track them down. Then 35 yards deep into the backfield he could just heave it to an open guy after like 15 seconds...completely ridiculous. This should even things up a good bit.

The big question is though, who will be the goat on this year's Madden cover? I don't think you can really say the curse was broken by Ray Lewis because he's not an offensive player.
