    Madden '06

    Frick punt returns ARE pain in the ***. But if you take your returner and bump one of the gunners you get 15yd penalty on them.

    Oh after you bump them you have to get the ball too.


    Running is soooo easy too. Its amazing how you can watch the lanes develope. Henderson is a friggin stud!!

    Re: Madden '06

    i love the new features, but at the same time i hate them...

    it was easy for me, a madden freak, to get accustomed to them in the first few weeks...but a lot of the non-regular madden players had such a hard time getting used to the passing scope, last year we had huge tournaments in my dorm, 10+ people would be down on any given night, i went the entire second semester without a loss in head to head...with my team, the washington redskins, yes, they're my madden team...i'm undefeated this year so far too, but only with a record of like 7-0 against people who were still trying to grip the new passing features

    Re: Madden '06

    The button changes have me wooped. I'm not used to the limited way you must have them.

    My record as the Packers is 12-2-1 my first ever tie in madden vs computer lol.

    Same roster as packers except Ty Law and Dan Neil.

    Went undefeated my first franchise year. Drafted a stud CB in the first round, he as 5-6 picks in my 4 preseason games. Probably starting the regular season tonight.

    Re: Madden '06


    My losses and tie came from being cocky trying to rack up points to Walker. What bad could happen, did! but it made the game a lot of fun


    i haven't finished mine yet to do the draft. i got one more game left

    Re: Madden '06

    Do you guys actually play the preseason games or do you just simulate them?

    Re: Madden '06

    I play them. Only for the fact that I think if I control the team my rookies and other not so great players will have a better progression than if the games area simulated. I can force them to play, make the throw to my rookie WR, take control of my rookie DB and get the pick etc.

    Now if it really helps or not, I don't know. I usually get +2 to +4 over all on each of them.

    Re: Madden '06

    i change the quarters to 2-3 minutes and play them...somewhat for what Ryan uses them for, try and get some rookies stats--which leads to overall rating boosts...but also because people rarely get hurt when i play the games--however when i simulate, the CPU tries to disembowel my whole roster

    i can't do franchises with the packers, i get too anal--for example, on '06--no coston, whitticker, poppinga...in '05 i always tried to find a team that would trade me a 2nd for mckenzie to be realistic, etc.

    Re: Madden '06

    Yeah I just traded Martin's no run blocking TE azz last night for a 4th round from the bears. Then picked up a FA that had a higher over all (like +4 higher) and a MUCH higher run block. Now when I run out of the i form or one back I can run to left SO much better. Clifton is on my sh!t list lately which his terrible blocking... smell a trade and FA aquisition coming soon.

    Note: I have merged both "Madden '06" topics together for easier reference. Let's keep all madden 06 chatter in this sticky.

    OMG, see what I have to put up with here?! :roll:

    Users...

    Yeah I have been able to get some 10-15-20 yard runs if I put them in full on punt block. Usually they can fend of the punt coverage at the line long enough for me to catch it, make a move and head up the side line for a few yards.

    One up from rookie, (pro?) not all madden. I guess I should bump up to that though. These undefeated seasons can get a little lame after a while. Still is hard to "lose" a game if you don't have to :p

    Haha lightweight indeed. I am getting too old to be pulling the Madden until 4am and then get up for work at 7. Plus one of the two brats usually wakes up and needs something anyway, so sleep is becoming more precious!

    I have a hard time on All-Pro. My passing game sucks a big one so I am looking for tips. Like I can barely complete 49-50% of my passes. I think rushing is easy with a really speedy back, but passing is so damn hard. BTW, I'm still playing Madden '05, but I would think it's mostly the same (except for the vision cone thing).

    I used to play Pro all the time and I was always undefeated, big blowouts, etc. but then I wanted something more challenging (but I hate it so damn much when I lose!).

    If anyone has any tips for the passing game on All-Pro that would be nice. :)

    I'm in my second season. Went 16-0 in the regular season then lost Brett in the NFC Championship and lost the SB throwing 5 INTs vs. Baltimore with Rodgers at QB. I'm through three games and have already returned 3 kickoffs for TDs (using Chris Johnson as the return man) but I can't seem to get more than 8 or so yards on a punt return.

    Z2C glad to hear about your daughter, that's very cool.

    Z2C has been here from the get go, he's a good poster (and a pain in the...), and likes to make more work for me, but I appreciate the suggestions - most of the time :p
