The PB does a terrible job of that and it is a continuing issue in Madden.


3-4 pass rushers rarely make the PB. 3-4 DE's rarely make the PB because their role isn't recognized like that of a DT or interior defensive lineman. Slot receivers and CB's never make it in Madden.


Why does Madden not include PB alternatives? Only 2 MLB's can make the PB from the AFC and NFC every season.


In real life players voted to the PB that are in the SB don't go. And as a result don't get a PB on their resume. Yet those players often make the AP teams.


How hard would it be to group voting for edge rushers, interior linemen, flex offense, and flex DB? For edge rushers all 3-4 pass rusher OLB's would be included and all speed rusher, balanced 4-3, and 4-3 run stopper DE's. All DT's and 3-4 DE's would be included in the interior linemen category. Flex offense is simple - include the best remaining offensive player from the RB/WR/TE pool. Flex DB simple as well.
I like the PB voting idea, especially in a 32 man franchise.

I'd love this. I also love how the NBA 2k games have different power rankings from different sources, different analysts doing mock drafts, etc. It really adds to the depth of the universe that there's more going on than the games you play on the screen--there are different fans and analysts with different opinions on what is going on in your league.

Could you imagine if, just for kicks, Madden incorporated all-pro teams? Or released a yearly "Top 100" list with an NFLN logo? Or a PFF All-Pro team? Or if Bucky Brooks, Todd McShay, and Mike Mayock all had different mock-drafts?

I honestly don't think stuff like that would break the bank for EA in terms of implementation. It's not even like they need to pay ESPN or Fox a licensing fee--if IP is a problem, I'm sure NFLN would be happy to let Madden use their logos and a few of their sports personalities.
