Simply wow...The economy has really turned for the worse when franchises play video game (EA video games no less) to figure out whether a player will have good chemistry with their current team.

Rule of thumb: If you have to dig that deep to figure out whether a player will be a good fit, then he's probably not a good fit....

This is really cool ... I hope other games start doing this. Especially MLB The Show. Very innovative.

Maybe Matt Millen should have taken over the Lions in Madden to see if he could turn it around lol. I bet he would have been fired sooner!
