Stat projections according to Madden

Postby bagobonez » Tue Aug 17, 2004 10:12 pm

This is just for craps and grins. I played the 2004 season on Madden 2005, and here's how the stats came out. Of course they mean nothing, it's just for fun. By the way, I didn't include the Cowboys' players stats because I used them and they were slightly inflated.


QB's
Player Name - Yards - TD's - Int's

Manning - 3428 - 29 - 10
Brady - 3986 - 33 - 28
Bulger - 3150 - 19 - 10
T.Green - 3250 - 25 - 23
Hass - 3107 - 25 - 18
Penning - 3105 - 19 - 13
Brees - 2804 - 20 - 13
Brad J - 3257 - 22 - 17
E.Manning - 2634 - 18 - 16
Leftwich - 2426 - 17 - 13
McNabb - 2868 - 21 - 17 (220 rushing 1 rushing TD)
Delhomme - 3240 - 18 - 15
Culpepper - 3420 - 18 - 19 (369 rushing 1 rushing TD)
Vick - 2652 - 21 - 17 (898 rushing 4 rushing TD's)
Brooks - 3015 - 21 - 25 (118 rushing 1 rushing TD)

McNair get hurt for the length of the season in pre-season, and Favre broke his elbow in like Week 6, that's why they're not on the list.

RB's
Name - Yards - TD's

Tomlinson - 2009 - 16
S.Davis - 1912 - 10
J.Lewis - 1655 - 13

Portis - 1568 - 6
Deuce - 1526 - 9
M.Faulk - 1501 - 11

Henry - 1425 - 11
Shaun - 1361 - 12
Barlow - 1322 - 6
Tony Fisher - 1304 - 6 (Ahman missed most of the year)
Barber - 1297 - 11
C.Perry - 1236 - 6 (Rudi missed most of the year)
Edgerrin - 1152 - 7
Domanick - 1092 - 4
W.Green - 984 - 10
Dillon - 947 - 13
K.Jones - 935 - 10 (didn't start until Week 4)

Dunn - 731 - 3
Bennett - 729 - 6
T.Jones - 714 - 5
Q.Grifin - 704 - 1
B.Westbrook - 635 - 6


WR's
Name - Yards - TD's

Harrison - 1138 - 14
Troy Brown - 1205 - 9
McCardell - 1093 - 6
Boldin - 1016 - 7 (obviously not gonna happen)
J.Smith - 1034 - 10
R.Moss - 1273 - 8

Let's hope the final stats look nothing like these.

i think all video game designers are in love with troy brown. he always seems to be incredible in my ESPN football game as well, and here he is with 1200 yds and 9 td in madden...

I think it's probably because they have Brady ranked so high, and all that yardage has to go somewhere, but the game doesn't take into account how Brady spreads the ball evenly between like 10 different people.

I'm not sure to be impressed or worried that you took the time to enter all that stuff.

I am sure that the programmers are just giving love to the defending champs. Brady isn't even on my list of QBs to get. Probably not even as a back-up. He is a good real-life QB (and apparently a good video game-QB), but he never floats my boat as a fantasy QB.

After that season, the Eagles traded and acquired Ahman Green, and Jamal Lewis set a single season rushing record with 2,480 yards rushing.

Madden inflates stats of their coverboys. And with the mathematical algorithms they use to determine a player's ability, speed, recognition, etc. it's extremely unreliable to even begin to speculate from their game. If anything, get the game, edit the roster to how YOU feel it will be, and try to get it similar to last year's numbers. You may have to manipulate a lot of players, but if you're bored, it could be a fun challenge.

We all realize that Brady getting significantly more yards than Manning is unlikely, as unlikely as him getting 28 INTs. Holmes with only 6 TDs is conservative by ANY respect, he's the focal point of that offence and gets huge carries in the red zone, things like this require an AI that Madden is unable to calculate, or they decided to not put the effort in putting it in effect.

Entertaining, but altogether useless, especially with people being injured seemingly at random.

interesting at least to see...impressionable made some good points. it would be tough to put the AI in to try and come up with reasonable..but for that matter we all have our own ideas on how players 'should' do this year barring injury. so it was neat to see how EA sports thinks it too.

I played a season in Madden and TO will have 2200 yards receiving with 24 TDs while Brian Westbrook will have 1200 yards rushing and 1200 yards receiving with 33 TDs.
