Those who know me know that I am a Madden freak.
I’ve loved football video games since my dad put Tecmo Bowl in my hands in 1988, and still bust out Madden ’96 now and then when I’m at the family house and the Sega Genesis is readily accessible.
So now, with the release of Madden NFL ’11 on the horizon, I’m doubly excited.
Of course, I’m looking forward to the new features…but after seeing the rankings, I’m also pumped to see how I can take what’s apparently a gigantic collection of stiffs and turn them into a dynasty.
That’s right, stiffs. The Eagles, according to EA Sports, have four players who rank above 90—and one of them is a fullback. And the kicker is that the kicker is tied for fifth with the starting left guard.
But hey, I turned Jason Avant into a 2,000-yard receiver by using the wheel play to perfection in Madden ’07, so let’s see what I and the rest of Eagles Nation have to work with this fall.
