While I am editing my Madden 2006 rosters, I decided to finish my Madden 2005 franchise with the Giants.
Just finished the NFC Championship game against the Carolina Panthers. I beat them 42-25. However, Carolina gave the game away with some horrible decisions. Early in the third quarter, I punted to Steven Smith and he didn't call for a fair catch. I drilled him and recovered the fumble, ran down to the 1 yard line and scored the next play. Later in the quarter, Smith doesn't call for a fair catch, I drill him again, and run the fumble in for a Touchdown. HUH???
Is the computer that dumb? Never had anything happen like that before.
Good thing my special teams came up big. Carolina was the beast. They finished 15-1, and were #1 in offense rushing. They sent 4 Offense Lineman to the Pro Bowl.
I finished rated first in Total defense, rushing defense and passing defense. So much for the old 1st in rushing defense, 32nd in pass defense.
In 2006, are the teams who play 3-4 defenses better at defending the run? I always have an easy time running the ball against these teams. Against the Steelers, I won 34-0 and ran all over them.
Anyway, can't wait to finish my rosters. I like editing them myself. Makes it more fun in my opinion.
