MickCollins: Of all the Bearsvtheycould pick, they pick Ron Rivera?


Cndn Bacon: But you're right, Ron Rivera being there instead of Walter Payton justseems like they're trolling us.


Walter Payton is one of my favorite players of all time, but I don't think he'd stand a chance against Barry Sanders in a national poll. Of course, if it was Walter on the ballot, he probably wouldn't be the #14 seed.

El Farquistador: I wish that more people realized that the Madden franchise is a totally unplayable pile of shiat.


Unplayable? How so? When you put the disc in, does it not let you play the game?

It's repetitive. They seem to add and remove features for no reason. There is rarely an advancement in the game other than graphics. Most years are simply a roster update.

I don't buy them when they come out because I don't really like them but I do occasionally buy one when I find one in the bargain bin.

But it's not "unplayable".

That but...did they really throw out the fantasy draft on last year's edition?  That was the most fun part of any Madden game for me in the last decade.

I thought this year was an improvement in game play. Movements seem much more fluid and sensitive, and your passing game definitely sees a lot more pick-offs, so you have to be more selective with it. I like the new physics engine, but I DO foresee that Madden '14 is going to be the same exact thing.

So I skipped 13, and I think I'll pick up 25.  The only thing I don't like about that is how they keep the price up until the next version comes out.  Maybe I'll get my sports fix playing last year's NCAA then.

Hell if I know. Like I said they seem to add and remove features randomly. It wouldn't surprise me at all. I think the last version I bought (07) had a Create-A-Player where you made a player based on the characteristics of your parents, and you got some hilarious combinations like, "Truck Driver father, Magician Mother" and got some truly bizarre character stats. You'd have to sit there and "roll" for good parents. Then, poof, it was gone. I've never heard of them using it again.

That game was also notable because they neglected to include AI behavior for if you took a man off the line and positioned him off to the side on punts. Every punt was a 20 yard loss and turnover on downs once you figured that out.

Wise enough move. I just got '13 cause my friends are over all the time.

Back in the day it was "buy it the year after my team was really really good so the developers will have figured it out, then never play online and don't let it update when we suck again."

Now I don't think I can keep it from updating. :/

Waaaahahahahahaha man that guy will be a perfect fit with the "receivers" there in Chicago.

Barry would initially lose votes, but then wind up with 50 more than he started.

I think Fasano got me twice in the past 5 years. Always pick him up at some point when I need a TE and he does ok for that week. Then he disappears for a month.

5 years, $65 million, $30 million guaranteed. One tier below Fitz's contract, but still very high for a WR

I guess since they signed a big name WR they can spend that 1st rounder on a QB. Assuming he makes it through the Cards and Bills, now that they've officially dumped Fitzy.

Hixon but has tabled it in search of a better opportunity, USA Today reported Tuesday.

Giant's receivers may be unrecognizable next season, if Detroit makes a better offer that is.

Shiat, lost Chase Daniel to the Chiefs.  Had the stuff to start now, though, and I hope he does great things there.

Ellerbe is now a dolphin. The Ravens linebacker core no longer exists.

Fish grab Ellerbe.  Looks like the Ravens are getting smaller.  And Leeroy is getting laaaarrrrararger

I love how Aaron Ross went from the Giants to the Jaguars for a year and is now going right back to the Giants. Actually, no. That sucks.

wtf just happened in Indianapolis?  See you Walden.  You were looking better every week.
 
2013-03-12 06:22:49 PM
The numbers I'm seeing for Ellerbe make no sense 5yrs/$35mil?  He signed for less than Kruger's 5/40?  That makes no sense at all.  Kruger doesn't even play every down.
 
2013-03-12 06:24:08 PM
I think I just heard the Ravens draft Teo.

Torgo_of_Manos: star_topology: The Muthaship: I'm writing in Fred Lane.

Tim Biabatuka

That's one name I honestly didn't think I would hear again


I expected his named to get dropped.  Then again, I expect "Biakabutuka" and "drop" to show up often together.
