Yeah, I think they could do a lot more with a draft board situation as others are mentioning. In fact, I imagine that could be a nice spot for smart glass, actually. Having to switch back and forth in some of the menus to see different team items has always been a pain. Throw some part of it on smart glass, in particular, a straight up draft board would be fantastic.

So scout players go to the draft and search through the phone book.
The game automatically creates your big board of every guy you scouted. I take it a step further though, I bought a notebook and some colored pencils. I go through my depth chart and I rank each position by needs: immediate, future and none. I assign each one a different a color. I then assign each one of the recruits I scouted a color grouping based on how long I project it will take them to be starters: immediate, 1 year, 2-3 years, never (special teams). It takes me an extra 15-20 minutes but it helps me feel like a real armchair GM. I go into a little more detail than this but won't bore with you the rest lol.

EA could stop all of this speculation if they would let us know what happened or put out another stream. Instead in typical fashion they just let it go unresolved for us to figure out ourselves. At least the EA Access guys should be able to let us know about this before the 26th.
You mean like in a matter of one season the Tampa Bay Bucs cutting Josh Freeman, Tiquan Underwood and Carl Nicks and trading Jeremy Zutah and Lagaratte Blount? That's just the offensive side of the ball that doesn't include cutting Revis the best CB in the NFL.

It sounds fish when you see it in the game but when you compare it to the real NFL you just never know what a GM will do. Maybe the Bears finished 3-13 and the GM decided he wasn't going to win anything with the current roster and decided on a wholesale rebuild, we have seen that plenty of times in the real NFL where teams have a fire sale. It could be EA messed up the logic or it could be they actually made it like the real NFL. Either way they will never please everyone.

So basically you can make anyone a superstar as long as you apply enough points. Do we know this?
This is the reason why it costs so many hours for the drills so that you can't make your entire team into superstars. You have to pick and choose how you want to go about it. Do you want to turn Manziel into a 95 OVR and completely ignore the rest of your teams development or do you want to turn Manziel into 85 OVR and spend time developing a young RB, WR and OL as well. It's all about balance in this new mode. Hopefully the days of making your entire team All Pros with XP are over.

Re: Madden NFL 15 Livestream: Connected Franchise

lol - A stat pop up Banner before kickoff stating Hester's Madden Return Ratings, then the Kicker and his Madden Kick Power Ratings.


How about his previous season or Career stats at that point?




Anyone know if they toned down players coming out of retirement?
