So they wrote a blog about what they will eventually write blogs about?

Hmm... I wonder what an X-Book is.

Dynamic player performance sounds interesting.

^^ At least it's a blog that gives everyone a time table to look at. At least we won't be hearing, when is the franchise blog coming or when is the game play blog coming?

Or will we?

10 years of the leagues audited financial records.

Looks like we are getting CBA Negotiation Mode! Too bad DeMaurice Smith and Jeff Pash will only be available in platinum packs.

Hope Dynamic Player Performance is player slumps intragame and throughout the season at all positions... or inversely, hot streaks. Only signs of this we've ever seen in Madden I think are rookie/young QBs in a hostile environment, with squiggly lines for routes, and missing passing icons pre-play? Completing passes upped your confidence and this slowly went away. Throw a pick and it's back to being frazzled again.

I think player "composure" has only been in the NCAA series.

I think it was a smart move saving MUT and Online for last... I feel the hardcore people who pay attention this early would rather see the franchise and presentation stuff a lot earlier

I think x-books are what they had in head coach where you can adjust plays on the fly. and save them to your playbooks.

Does this have to do with superstar mode? I sure hope so.

Nice. Sort of sets expectations for when information will be coming out. I imagine there will be info trickled in between the given dates though.

REALLY EARLY to say this, but it already seems like there will be more bang for the buck this time around as it relates to features and enhancements.

Oh lame, thought that was in Madden too, well maybe some form of it will be now. I bounce between both titles every year, my bad.

Yeah, they added a feature where once you're a star player, you can try to start a strike...

Seriously though, I hope you're right about it too.

Yea that sounds about right. I kind of doubt they will give us create a play this year. But I could be wrong.

Well aleast this year they have given us a timeline when they will do their blogs and stuff. So people want be asking so much over the next few months are so. Good move on the Madden staff part on this idea. Looking forward to blog on franchise mode. To see what they have done to improve on it this year. Also can't wait to what they have to improve presentation aswell. This is going to be a exciting few months coming up. Can't wait.

Wasn't stirring anything up... I have no clue what an "X-Book" is!

I assume it just means Playbook, as in "Xs and Os" book.
