    Hehehe. Many people.

    Hey, want to see McNair in action on the Xbox 360? I did a video for our site of the QB's that moved to different teams. Of course I had to get McNair in there:

    Scroll down to the Xbox 360 videos and click the one called "New Quarterbacks".

    And yes I edited that video myself.

    I'm probably not going to make it to the midnight release but I do have the game reserved. I'm really looking forward to the game this year.

    Stinger, do you have any idea of when the demo will be out?

    I have not heard any word of a demo yet. I am going to hazard a guess it's going to be likely Friday or Monday if it's at all before the launch. Otherwise you might have to wait a week afterwards. EA seems to do demos after the games ship unfortunately.

    Nice work.

    You play XBOX live (360)?

    Must say, first impressions are not good so far. Looks same as last year with a few minor things added.

    Re: Madden '07?

    I find it very difficult to play.

    I have been beating my friends ass for the last 4 years.

    I have played 4 games against him, and 5 online.

    I am extremely ashamed to say i have only 1 win. and that was 7-0.

    the precision passing is horrible compared to last year. You can't lead WR's as well.

    i suck at defense I can't stop anything. I have trouble running the ball and I throw multiople picks a game.

    I am going into severe depression.

    I am not used to sucking at games.

    someone please help

    Thats funny, I found it the exact opposite. I played the Steelers for my first game and were beating them with ease. On '06 it would always be a close game. I am consider myself good but not great at the game.

    Many of the same artificial intelligence problems I found in the last one are in this one as well. Sad really.

    I also think the graphics might have inexplicably taken a step backwards for '07.

    Hey stinger I took a little video of an Ed Reed INT when I was playing today, think you can host it on your site? Only problem is its like 17.8 mb so I dunno how I am going to get it to you.

    I'm loving this game so far. Last year was a very bad year for video game football. This game is far from perfect though. It plays just like last year. They did add new features which makes it better though. It's a shame there is no other NFL game out there. EA sports needs another company to push them. Now that they have the official license, they don't have to worry about making their game better.

    Exactly, competition always brings out the best product. Unfortunately the commies that run the NFL don't feel that way. I am waiting for them to market their own religion soon and start packaging and selling that.

    I beat the Bucs 56-7, the Raiders 42-14, and the Browns something even more outrageous, I finally found some good sliders though that give you about 120 snaps combined and realistic games.

    Also Marcus Demps is a good signing...at least for me. He's a 75 which is better than any of the safeties other than Reed on our roster. He has three INTs with 2 of them returned for TDs through three games. I don't know if Demps got drafted by another team but I also signed Ryan O'callaghan who I believe was drafted by the Bucs.

    In the end though I will probably just fool around with this franchise and start a new one once the roster update comes out.
    ''You'd love to go on the first day but I'm glad for the situation I'm in,'' he said. ''Baltimore knows how to play defense.''

    Is there any place you can put it temporarily that I can grab it from? I'd be happy to host it.


    I found the 360 version of Madden better than last year, but still lacking in some areas.

    Can EA figure out how to do 60 fps yet? The current gen Madden is twice as smooth.

    Re: Madden '07?

    Ok, I've played for a couple days now. I play only for the online play, I'll mess with the franchise and superstar a little, but my thing is playing online.

    The next year is going to be very very painful for me and online football. I know EA has now taken to basically pulling stuff from the 2K series to make their product seem fresh but if any of you played 2K3 you'll know what I am getting at when I say that the running game in 2007 is just horrible. Just like 2K3 every single running back in the league over the last year obtained the amazing ability to break the first tackle no matter who it is coming at them. In 2K3 everyone (but me I guess) played as the dolphins cause all you had to do was run with Ricky all game cause no one could tackle him. Well fast forward to Aug. 22nd 2006. I pick up my game, get home, start playing a regular offline game and I'm noticing that Jamal is breaking like a ton of tackles, then I notice that Willie Parker is just breaking tackles left and right. Hmmmmmmm, so I get a feel for the new kicking game and find that much is the same as last years edition. I exit the game, jump online and find a game pretty fast. I'm playin my usual game which consists of a good amount of running the ball, and man am I just killing this guy, I could seriously just run the ball the whole game and never have to pass it was so bad. Just a bad omen of things to come.

    The pinnacle of this whole mess came last night as I'm playing a game against some guy who is using the Bengals. I wont get into to many specifics as it ended up being a pretty good game however this game showed me what the next 363 days of madden are going to be like. One play when I know he is going to be running the ball I shoot through with Ray Lewis and hit Rudi Johnson about 3 yards in the backfield, BAM! three yard loss? Nope, Rudi shrugs off Ray who I suppose can no longer tackle, and presses on running up about 10 more yards before BAM from the side, Ed Reed with the tack.......hmmm nope I guess Ed was hanging out with Ray to much as Rudi just powers through Mr. greasy hands Reed. Finally Dwan Landry hits Johnson about 7 yards after Mr. Reed failed at his mission, bringing down Rudi who must have been feeling nice that day letting a rookie tackle him. Now I'm obviously as Ravens fan and I think Ray and Ed are good players and fine tacklers but it's not like I'm some Falcons fan or something say "OMG Keith Brookings is tackle machine elite all pro god! How he miss tackle! Blah!" obviously letting my fanfair think higher of a player then he is. Ray and Ed are two of the highest rated defensive players in this game and they are missing tackles all the time.

    That just one example of this kind of thing but other similar plays have been the norm rather then the excepion. And don't get me started on why is it that my defensive players refuse to leave their feet to defend the pass, if one more WR jumps over my ass as I'm using the useless Y button I'll kill myself.

    The more I play this game the more I long for the 2K series again. Apparently they are going to be coming out with their own football game soon however it has all fake teams and players, but if the game play is as good as it was when the series last left off I'll get it.
