The Broncos just went from a 70 OVERALL team to a 77 OVERALL! Wow! Biggest jump I think I've EVER seen in madden!

Good news. The stat was ridiculously low. Notice any particular players that got a bump (Knowshon and Buck, perhaps)?

Knowshon actually went down from 81 to 80 (he got slowed down, guess they're ****ing him cuz of his knee...) but Buck went from 78-80 and got more power.

Doom has been getting massive boosts, up to like a 97 now I think (was like an 85 to start the season, his finesse moves 97 and acceleration 93 and block shedding 90+ own), Stokely went from 72-74, same with Jabar. Orton went from a 73-75 (Medium Throw Accuracy up is the only thing I noticed?), our DB's are all better by like 1-5 points in all stats too. Dawkins up from an 89 to 91 (back to where he was last year on Philly lol). Hill from 72 up to 75. Haggan up from 68 to 72 (I think, I always used Barrett in that spot)

That is a pretty damn big jump for an ENTIRE team to get.

I dont know what the bump for Knowshow was, but I played online against the steelers and he ran all overthem breaking tackles and such. Needless to say I wont in Overtime with a pick from Champ for a gamewinning TD.

Naw, just what I'm reading and off memory (I have a pretty good one when it comes to stats as I spend a while setting up my rosters weighing strengths and weaknesses, e.g. why Barrett starts for me at ROLB in my 4-3 Over lol)

Until Haggan or Andre and our Dline get better I cant effectively run a 3-4 on Madden yet... We need to keep winning.

Dumervil has gone up in his overall at OLB from a 65 when it first came out to an 81! Dawk started at 90 went down to 88 but now is back up to a 90. Clady went up from an 87 to a 91 and is now a 94. Harris was a 74 is now an 85. Kuper was a 78 now an 81. Hamilton is an 85 too. Mcbean went up to a 67 froman 63. Woodyard is a 55, pisses me off. Haggan was added to the game he's a 72. Marshall went down from a 92 to a 90. Also Royal was dropped to an 80 from an 83. Ortons overall is now a 75 and they bumped up his arm strength from 74 to 77. Dropped Moreno from an 81 to an 80. Buckhalter up to an 80 from a 78. Ronald fields is a 75. Prater is up to 65. That's all the changes.

Has a new roster update been released today?

I'm still pissed EA isn't releasing it on PC.

Sure, don't release it with the consoles to limit piracy lowering console game sales, but put it out by week 8 dammit.

Agreed. PC's just aren't the market for sports and football games.

Ya, I was the Broncos against the steelers, the guy could have easily beaten me with better play calling, but chose only to pass and Champ Bailey made him pay with 2 pick sixes.

I hate Madden but yes, it sucks because it's the only football game out there and I'd like to have a new one.

I have a PS3. Do you have to pay for the update? There is some Accelerator stuff available for purchase from the PS3 Store. What is up with that? I don't remember it from last year.

Anyway I think 2009 was better, I miss the ability to chose an Olineman to cut block when running. In 2009 if you had the back side tackle throw a Cut block I was almost guaranteed 5+ yards a carry.

Yea, same here. The LBers are just horrible. Ayers is much better as a DE in the game as well. I also put Barret in at LB. I like to use the Philly D play book or NE D play book.

So you send a rocket to space but ya can't update the roster on madden?:D

To get a updated roster all you have to do is play a game online. Just go to the Ps3 live or network link on the madden menu, there you should see a option of playing a ranked game now. Hit the play now and the roster will update. You can then play the person online or just back out of the game.

Indeed, I've been playing some real idiots lately. Yes, blitz everybody every single down while I hit Stokley or Jabar in the slot and march down the field. After me running the same play a few times, you'd think these idiots would learn. I've beaten all the good/great teams at least once. Not that I'm anything special, I get beat too by kids who know what they're doing, but the number of retards never ceases to amaze me.

I don't get the hate for Royal..he's a hell of a WR. Prater should be at least a 75!

Unfortunately it's justified at this point. He has like 47 receiving yards to this point in the season. He is talented, but especially for something like Madden, you have to bring stats.

Last year? 91 Catches damn near 1k yards recieving. He has some pretty good hands but you wouldn't think so based on this game...imo he should be around 85 with better hands.

Well I agree that he had a great season last year, which will be the baseline for this year. But as far as the in-season updates go, he needs to produce this season.

I don't play online obviously.

I just create a Franchise and play the PC when I have the time.

It's probally the best option to just play the PC in franchise. Too many onliners are using cheats, running no huddle and abusing the game to runup points into the 90's.

There is a guy on the EA forum (Versuz2) that came up with a level that offer great gameplay and challenge. It's Pro-Level with the PC sliders set 100 and the speed threshold set to 0.

Allows the pc to challenge you without having to cheat/dumb down/slow down your players.
