As a Packers fan, I hope Bridgewater just skips the field and focuses on Madden completely to get ready fro next season.
LOL! That's hilarious, but I bet the guy was dead serious.

EA Football is now turning out nuts into our society.

Bridgewater makes me lol.

The real playbooks look nothing like the ones in Madden, in fact if you used Madden for plays then you would be calling plays simpler then the ones they use in high school.

I don't like the Vikings, so I hope there's some truth to this...LOL

On a side note, did anyone else notice the kickoff animation in the Madden '08 video clip looks suspiciously close to the "new" animations touted for M15 out of E3? I don't so much mind EA re-using old assets as much as I wonder why they have not been doing so all along and kept all the things added over the years instead of retiring them one generation only to bring them back as "new" in the next...very hard to NOT be cynical about them...

I wish I knew what Madden the article was talking about. Apparently in this mysterious Madden you can create plays and look off the DBs. Best of all the AI is realistic it seems!

That is very true, and really doesn't help any player learn a team's playbook. I'm pretty sure for the most part every team in Madden has the same plays.

If he is using Madden to learn the Vikings playbook, they probably should stick to Cassel for a year or two so he can learn the real playbook lol.

Re: Teddy Bridgewater using Madden 25 to learn playbook

This is like when they said NASCAR drivers were using video games (in the PSX days, mind you) to get familiar with the race track.

With the exception of Sears Point, there would have been zero reason to do this, ever. Nowadays, I'm not sure. Since there are wheels about and the tracks are damn near pinpoint accurate with proper car physics, I'm sure it can get you psyched up a bit, in a virtual way. Otherwise, there is just no comparison.

All of these sayings are promotional. All of them. However, I would not be hit hard at all by saying that I know more about baseball and baseball players with how many baseball video games I play. Same with trading cards (or MLB Showdown, for that matter).

You are correct, EA doesn't custom make each playbook, they just remove formations that aren't used by each team. So all the playbooks are the same plays but different formations and sets.

Re: Teddy Bridgewater using Madden 25 to learn playbook

I don't know why this doesn't make sense to you. Norv Turner's playbook has been pretty much in madden for a long long time. He can also test specific plays versus different coverages. I don't really understand what the big deal is. You guys are acting like mental reps mean nothing as well. The only difference between a mental rep and madden is added randomness. He can still practice read progressions and he can still test his terminology by translating madden play names into his language; both very important parts to playing QB. That isn't to say he wouldn't be better off at a QB camp doing it irl but if he is recovery period I don't see what the problem with this is. Madden defenses aren't as complex but at the same time they possess superhuman capabilities which could be advantageous
