View Full Version : Madden 13 to Support the Read Option Offense

It just occurred to me that with the popularity of Denver's new "Read Option Offense" the programmers working on Madden 13 (for the 2012 season) are probably burning the midnight oil adding code to support Denver's version of the Florida Gator's playbook.

You know what this means, don't you? Next year, you'll be able to see how Brady or Orton or even Big Ben would look running the Read Option!

Call me "Old School", but I can't wait for Madden 13!

(EDIT: Added my prototype cover art below.)

EA also makes NCAA Football 12 btw. As for them burning midnight oil for Madden. They've not given a **** about real innovation since EA purchased a monopoly on NFL games and killed off NFL 2K. The current deal extends through 2013. Hopefully it ends there.

Well, I'm hoping that in Madden 13 it will be renamed as "Tebow Time" or "Denver Read Option".

Unfortunately, if the programmers stay true to reality, the first time you call an Option Read, it will work brilliantly for 12 yards. But from that point on, all you'll get will be straight ahead runs with the QB lining up under center.

:facepalm

Yea in 11 the Broncos O "kinda" has it... in the Bronco heavy you can read option on a couple of plays . You hike the ball and if you want to hand it to Royal you hold/hit the hike button again once you have the ball and to keep it you dont hit anything... But they don't have any read plays that you can give it to the HB that I know of yet.


THE better way if you really want to run the read option is to pick the Titans or the Eagles play books... They actually have a ton of read option plays that go to the HB or others that you do what I said above and is basically the read option like we have ran with Tebow.

You assume they actually do anything in between versions other than change a few name strings....

You're underestimating all the hard work that goes into Chris Collinsworth's playful banter and deep football insights after a sack, turnover, blocked kick, or other pivotal moment in a virtual game.

EA sucks! I originally thought Madden 12 was different than others. The more i played it the more i realized nothing much has changed. Playing guys online pick 2-3 plays all game long. Computer guys never figure it out. Tired of Champ dropping ints that hit him right in the hands. They have no competition so if it sucks, oh well, no one else is making any other NFL game.

You have to but the game once every 3 years cause they really change very little it just keeps peeps buying it yearly **** them just wait till they make the real changes then buy it.

QFT !! Madden has been a train wreck ever since they switched from xbox to the xbox 360 version. champ drops 2 or 3 picks and the new madden is extremely slow on xboxlive

I just put together what I think the next cover art should look like. What do you guys think?

Yeah, the passes are something that get to me. The DBs have that awareness to get into position, but so many times it just hits them in the hands and they drop it.

Statistically, it's realistic - if it weren't that way DBs would be getting 2-3 pics a game. But they need to change the gameflow.

Yeah, on second thought...with the Madden Curse and the number "13" looming, maybe this isn't such a great idea for cover art after all.

...unless EA Sports decides to skip "13" and jump directly from 12 to 14.

Word on the street is the the EA programmers have just finished coding up a "Tebowing" module for Madden 13. But only Tebow or D-line players from the Lions can use the new maneuver.
