Damn...did anyone notice they gave Bruce Irvin (Seahawks' first round pick) 90 speed? Freaking insane for a DE....and the Seahawks even have another 90 speed DE but he's like 53 OVR or something lol. Irvin also has 93 power moves and 86 pursuit...low block shedding, but if you spend all your XP raising his block shedding, he's gonna turn into a BEAST!! I'm jealous...might have to start planning my first trade!

Can't wait to see the rest of these rookies...

The Buffalo Bills are going to be a force in the AFC (in this league)

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...

Does anyone want to be gay lovers with me in Fable 3?

This may be a dumb question, but last year, I had my controls set to where you could highlight a player on defense, press A, and then select his specific coverage. But in the demo, it seems pressing A just switches you to another player. Is there a setting to change that? Or is that one of the things they remapped?

Also, has anybody noticed the CPU logic being noticeably worse than last year? Both on All-Pro and All-Madden, they just completely mismanage the end of the game. I was ahead 10-3 with just under a minute to play and the CPU just got the ball back (and they had 1 timeout left). They ran the ball for 3 yards on 1st down, ran a hurry up, and spiked the ball to bring up a 3rd and 7. Then, they ran the ball again, hurried up to the line, and had an incompletion on 4th down.

Then, when I got the ball back with like :33 left in the game, gameflow is calling for PA passes. I realize these are small things that can be avoided, but how difficult is this stuff for EA to grasp? It's basic football sense...and it doesn't change year to year. Eventually, you'd think they'd get it right.

They were #2 on my list, should have a beast D-line among other things. I'm glad I got the Eagles but it would have been fun beating Widdow twice a year with Buffalo.

We'll see! Though, I can see you doing some damage with the FJax/Spiller combo and that front 7. Good luck getting anything through the air on me though. 8-)

I guess I should download this demo and preorder the game, huh?

Right now I would say the AFC is a hair tougher than the NFC based on everyone's performance last year, but you never know what will happen.

And you never know about personal and how people want to play. I feel the Bears match what I want to do. Run the ball and throw to one guy! haha

Well with the three-time incumbent champion in the NFC. I think we can call it even. The NFC Championship is our Super Bowl.

All of last year's Super Bowl winners are in the NFC except for Mr. Perfect Season. Plus we have MA with his home squad.

I pre-ordered my Madden from Best Buy. Got some codes for Andrew Luck and a $10 gift card/certificate when I pick up the game at a local store. Is that the best deal out there?
The Titans are the new Eagles, meaning I'll represent them poorly. 8-)

Amazon did the same thing but with $15 credit. Then again you have to pay for shipping (assuming you don't have Prime or you don't mind waiting the 5-8 days), so it probably evens out.

Here's Amazon's deal.

Spoiler


Also in this league the AFC is definitely more stacked than the NFC.

CAGFL: (187-31)

Best Buy also gives a $20 credit if you're an Unlocked member...so total of $30. Of course it costs $15 a year to be an Unlocked member, but it's more than worth it since you get $20 for a bunch of preordered games.
