Two guys rushed for 2,000 or more yards, including 2,100 by Larry Johnson. I just thought that was a little ridiculous. THe developers should have balanced out computer controlled offenses a little more.


wow, 498 ....he should be dead. LaDainian is winning the rushing title in my franshise, Peterson is ranked #4 with 1 more game to go so I doubt I will get it but at least I have 22 TDs! :P

BTW, anybody have any decent passing playbooks or plays they use? Cause I throw like 2 INTs a game and I only found out that screen passes work.


I usually find that most crosses/drags/posts(posts are only when the MLB is in coverage/blitz and not zoning that area) work for me especially if you line up your #1 WR in those spots(or fastest). I used to do a lot of hooks, but the latest play style has led me away from them. Fades and Flag routes work for me about .00000001% of the time and that's only if I do PA and they're wide-open.

:-b :-b

I don't like the Eagles playbook, but they are the team I play with in my franchise. Also, I'm working on an Eagles sig with the season starting up, it's just not finished yet. Marvin is holding it's place for now. ;-D

A couple really annoying things I've found so far (this is all for Madden 08 on the Wii, might not be on the others)...

You can't edit players' equipment. A minor thing to some, but I really liked being able to add/remove visors/armbands/eyeblack/and just other cool looking equipment to my players.

You can only scroll in one direction when scrolling through players on defense. Really annoying if you go past the guy you want to control and you have to go all the way back. Normally the other team has hiked it by the time I get back to my guy.

For some of the screens you can only scroll in one way though I can't remember which off the top of my head. I also haven't been able to figure out how to sort stat categories, like to figure out who has the most tackles or sacks or rushing yards or whatever.

Maybe it's just me but I'm having trouble connecting to other players in the online lobby. Half the time when I get in, I end up getting disconnected pretty soon. Haven't yet completed a whole online game and I can never get into one most of the time. Doesn't run so great when online anyway.

thats all I can think of for now...its an okay game but really not all that great for Wii.

I just found out about the skill games, very fun and cool addition. (I am probably the last to find this out, but just in case you havent :-) )

Also how the #$# do you run screes. EVERYTIME, the dline gets to me before the RB opens up. This is on all pro.

I can't remember ever being able to run screens successfully in Madden, at with least their specific "screen" plays. It's like the offensive line just totally craps out and if you even manage to get the ball to the running back there is hardly ever any space.

A few years back I used to use screens all the time, I believe it was '04, basically had about a 3500 yard season from my RB :-b
