Madden 09?

7 posts in this topic

How many people play franchise mode on Madden? Just wondering if anyone has ever gotten a steal in the draft? Like a late round pick who ended up being a starter with a high ranking. I have been playing forever. I am in my 10th season on one and 3rd on another, and I have never gotten a steal. If they are not in the game it should be something they do in the next version. The closest I ever came was a WR in the 6th round who had a high ranking in everything but catching. He was like a 60 somthing. After 4 years of beefing up his catching raiting I gave up he only made it to the high 70s I think.

Yeah I've had similar problems getting value out of the draft, and I also have it on 360. Franchise mode in the PS2 version of Madden '07 was the best.

franchise mode sucked for me. it was so easy to draft some people and suddenly their rating shot up. i hated the balance of franchise mode b/c it was too easy.

I hardly ever use the draft. Since the AI is stupid, I can normally trade my first round pick from someone in the 90+ range. Sometimes it takes a 1st and a third.

Then, with my second rounder and another pick and can normally get someone in the 80s.

Most players you can draft arent as good, in my opinion unless you import your draft class from NCAA.

    • Glad you can point to 1 off season to hang your hat on, when it comes to your opinion.  Doesn't give you much to stand on. What exactly are we crowning him anyways?   
    • I'm sure he's learned his lesson not to have a conversation with our fan base because of the way this way blown out of context. He didn't ask a question. He didn't imply anything. However, the same fans that only read headlines and then share posts on Facebook (without reading the article) decided to make all kinds of accusations and assumptions about this. So yeah....Bill should be more clear because we aren't very smart.  Edit: FYI...."if picked up" is not a question it's a statement. Should he have just assumed instead?
    • Nate Silver did an analysis on this, and not sure which party it would benefit more but what he did say was that it would likely hurt GOP more to pass it than for it to fail That is how unpopular this bill was
