This is my connected career mode in which I will be playing as a coach. I will be Ken Whisenhunt and will try to win the superbowl with the Arizona Cardinals.
1st Season in Franchise Mode:
The season objective is to make the playoffs. I started the season with Kevin Kolb at QB but he was terrible throwing for 1,628 yards with 10 TD's and 18 INT's so decided enough is enough and put john skelton in. I think our record at the time was 2-6.
Enter Skelton and we go 7-1 inlcuding a week 17 thrashing of the 49ers 35-20 to clinch a playoff spot with record of 9-7. season objective achieved.
Skelton threw for 2,456 yards with 22 TD's and 13 INT's with 60% rate. Skelton is now the QB of the future definetely for the cardinals.
Larry Fitzgerald made the prowl bowl and had his highest receiving TD total of 14. He had 110 receptions, 1,424 yards and 14 TD's.
1st year RB Ryan Williams was a sensation as he rushed for 1,288 yards with 13 TD's and a 5.0 per carry. He is now the teams starting HB but Beanie Wells will still be part of the team as he will be needed for tough yard situations in future.
Rookie WR Micheal Floyd suffered a wrist injury which ruled him out of the season but he finished with 37 receptions, 619 yards and 3 TD's. He is primed for a breakout season next season.
Breakout Star of the Season: TE Rob Housler had a mini breakout season snatching 38 recpetions, 753 yards and 5 TD's. He is now a featured part of the offense.
END OF SEASON AWARDS: 2012 NFL MVP AWARD:TOM Brady and Andrew Luck and RGIII won both the AFC AND NFC ROOKIE OF THE YEAR AWARDS.
PLAYOFFS AND SUPERBOWL:
The Arizona Cardinals lost in the wildcard in the playoffs to the Dallas Cowboys. SUPERBOWL 47 was played by the New England Patriots vs the New Orleans Saints. The Saints won their second Superbowl this time with no controversy given the suspensions the team endured during the 2012 season with suspension of their HC Sean Payton and MLB Jonathan Vilma. This is a remarkable achievement and now Drew Brees has won two SB MVPs and cemented his status in the Hall of Fame for sure.
[font="Arial"]BREAKING NEWS OF THE OFFSEASON[/FONT:
Former Arizona Cardinals, New York Giants and St. Louis Rams QB Kurt Warner has had enough of the studio life and will dust off his cleats and has decided to return to football. the 40 year Old QB feels he can still play and is not satisfied and wants one more shot at a SB.
