Rookie, the guy was offering you legitimate advice. Set your own rules and just don't do it. If you want to play the game that way, go nuts. But don't bite at the guy for suggesting something that makes sense.

That doesn't always work out well, though you could always edit them now.

Potential doesn't always mean they'll be superstar players. It sure helps the player progress but if I have a guy with an A potential at 64 and have two vets on my team 85+ I'm not going to start the guy and by the time he sees the field he's lost that early on progression and the A means nothing.

I get what you are saying as far as how it kind of kills scouting. But in a franchise (if you play more sim style) if a guy is great as far as potential but doesn't fit your system then you don't get him (unless your my boys and draft Tebow... lol). But I know that since my buddy and I run a 3-4 offline coop franchise that if we saw a de that had an A potential but only weighed 242, we probably wouldn't draft him.

Madden is still not smart enough with their moving of players to other positions. I know players have to learn a different system, but in the game there is no way you should have a DE at that weight with A potential and 83 overall fall to like a 70 or 72 when you convert them to outside linebacker.

Anyway, yea this kind of stinks but keep that in mind about potential. You still may have one of those 5th or 6th rounders become a lower overall when they start. They might just have some of the high core attributes. Your current starters still may be better.

Maybe it's just me trying to look around it... either way, the game is still fun in franchise.
I actually drafted a guy with a 57 overall and A potential in Madden 11. Tried to develop him for like 5 years but he never made it above a 74.

No, more like b/c I don't think you even read my entire paragraph before responding with a snide comment?

"Ok, I know I can't be the first one to notice this? Does EA care at all about this? Nothing like sucking the fun out of scouting when all you have to do is >>scout players>>highlight player potential>>hit x once (sorts with lowest potential at top)>> hit x again (sorts with highest potential at the top). Now you can see every single high potential player that will be a late round sleeper, etc. I know, I know, I just should avoid doing it but kinda kills the fun once you know it is there.."

C'mon thats like 4 sentences lol.

That might be somewhat true but I think you guys are missing the point.. there is a numerical value that you can't see so the guys at the top of the list ARE going to end up being 95+ (top couple people in every draft maybe?) Again.. all I'm doing is pointing this out. I guess right now I can choose between this and scouting my guys kick accuracy ratings.
