Barry was great in the open field, but O.J. was the best slasher.

No Subby, it just means the game will suddenly stop working after the 10th time you play it.

jdetweiler: is the QB you are referring to Scott "stone shoes" Mitchell, Andre "i won the heisman" Ware, or maybe Rodney "my wife is hot" Peete?

Mitchell had a couple of damn good years, with damn good receivers. Herman Moore is a borderline Hall Of Fame receiver, and there were other thousand-yard receivers on that team, like Perriman and Morton. Even Peete got the ball to Richard Johnson for a thousand yards one year.

Who did the Bears ever have catching the ball - Bo Rather? Ken Margerum? Brian Baschnagel? Dennis McKinnon? Willie Gault? As for quarterbacks, the best one in the first half of Payton's career was...there wasn't one. They were horrible. Every single one of them. From '75 until McMahon (who was average) it was Shiatting-The-Bed Central at QB for the Bears: Avellini, Huff, Phipps, Evans. It was beyond brutal to watch. You knew that if it wasn't Payton getting the ball it was either going to be an incomplete pass, a sack, a 1-yard dumpoff on third-and-10, or Payton having to chase down whatever defender picked off the pass.

Imagine a Bulls team consisting of Michael Jordan, three traffic cones and a one-legged blind leper. Watching the '75-81 Bears was something like that.

From Twitter: In career mode, just when you reach the peak of your powers, your player automatically retires.

/You guys realize that this means in the last three years, it's been a Cleveland Brown and two Detroit Lions on the cover of Madden, right? HAHAHAHAHAHA
