Madden NFL 18 Roster Update For Week 1 Available Now

The week 1 roster update for Madden NFL 18 is available now. It is about as accurate as one can make it, under the circumstances. Fans need to realize EA closed down the studio, because of hurricane Irma coming in. Obviously, rosters can take a back seat when lives are at risk.

Feel free to discuss the rosters, but keep everyone in Florida in your thoughts and prayers.

    Sweet, time to go nerf all those overrated Cowboys players and start my CFM.

    Last night's game has no bearing on this comment, but Tommy boy is getting his ratings corrected before I start. Tied with the likes of Cam Newton for second strongest arm in the league? Riiight
    I can't recall this happening, but should we expect portrait updates at any point? Two drafted players on the Bengals are missing portraits, those being Joe Mixon(2nd round) and Jordan Evans(6th round). Both Oklahoma players.. I wonder if that's just a coincidence.
    Y'know, I'm going to be forgiving for any mistakes for this first roster... I'm thankful that they were able to get it out, because there's a historic, deadly hurricane bearing down on Florida within the next 24 hours.

    I don't recall them ever adding portraits in the past. I usually go in and edit them in CFM and give them the closest face I can find.
    I despise the silhouette.
    Personally, I'm going to cut them some slack for any roster errors.
    Living in San Diego, I've never had to prepare for major natural disaster that puts my important family at risk. On top of that, meeting the demands of the consumer every single day.

    Yeah, disappointed to see the Steelers missing two players, RB Terrel Watson and CB Mike Hilton. Hilton may actually be the teams starting Nickel CB, despite coming out of absolutely nowhere as a rookie free agent and having an outstanding training camp.
    I get it though, its tough for them to add all of the guys who surprisingly make the rosters. A great solution to this:
    Allow you to import/export players with practice squad eligibility from new updates to current franchise practice squads. So if someone gets added in week two or three to the roster update, you don't have to restart your franchise. Rather, you could just import them into your current practice squad, then sign them from there.

    You can edit basically anything in the game as a Commissioner now. But yeah, the week 1 roster never gonna be a 100% accurate.
    I'd be nice to get a full list of mistakes or missing players going on this thread.

    But this happens every year. I understand the situation and appreciate the guy making sure the update got out - but I don't think guys are missing from the rosters because of the hurricane.
    i can officially report the Jets are missing there FB Howsare hes in the FA pool however to add him ... also J. Kerley isn't on the Jets I think .. hes not listed on the official depth chart on Jets.com. also missing WR Damore'ea Stringfellow the 5th or 6th WR. not huge but still a missing player.
    No Patrick Ricard or Jaylen Hill for the Ravens. Not having Pat hurts the most because he is the starting FB, just looked at the depth chart and Ravens have no FB at the top of the chart, it just says "NO PLAYER"; THE RAVENS of all teams. The team converting a DT to FB for Greg Roman's run scheme. One of the few teams still consistently using a FB. Not even gonna get into not being able to play him two ways and EA taking out the Iform Heavy DT.
    This is beyond disappointing. He's been with us all summer and played in all the preseason games.
    I guess I'll chalk it up to the hurricane and see if I can get at least Ricard created in my online league that's starting soon. I doubt they will go for that though.

    Kerley is on jets and other 2 are in FA pool.
    If you guys will keep posting these I'll try and keep a list going today. Or you can copy and add to this.....
    Giants missing: Shane Smith, Calvin Munson and Chad Wheeler
    Steelers missing: RB Terrel Watson and CB Mike Hilton
    Ravens missing: FB Patrick Ricard and Jaylen Hill
    Has anyone used these to start a CFM yet? For some reason, when I chose to "use real nfl rosters" to start my CFM, it didn't use the most updated rosters. It used the preseason rosters, and didn't include any of the Steelers trades or signings of the past few weeks. Very odd.
    I was under the understanding that if you start the franchise week one, there is some bug where the rosters are 75 men deep, not 53, so I wanted to start in the preseason. However, I also wanted to use the new rosters when I start my franchise.
    Clearly, I'm doing something wrong here. Any help appreciated.
    I'm at work all day. Could someone check and telling me if Bridgewater is injured or not? Wanting to know if I should get excited to start my franchise or not. I really hope he is, it's kind me of been a wide known thing that's he was probably going to get put on the PUO list. Check I'll definitely cut and some slack if not. Hope everyone stays safe.

    Howsare was waived to sign Kerley. Stringfellow was released and resigned to the practice squad in the past 24 hours.

    No he's not on the IR.
    Just out of curiosity, can a player like Bridgewater be stashed on the Practice Squad so he doesn't take up a roster space until he's ready, or is he ineligible for the PS?
    So if i want to start in preseason week 1 with the new rosters how do I do that? Do I press custom roster and then start in preseason and that will use the new update one? Because I noticed if I press the live roster then I start with the launch roster. Or do I have to press live and week 1?

    The option for practice squad isn't there when a player is injured. Instead it's Place on IR. Plus he'd be snatched quick! Unless you turn off stealing.
    Someone can correct my memory.

    I've talked with KANE on PUP and NFI guys... He doesn't place them on IR.

    IIRC last year, only rookies and maybe 1 year guys can go on the PS.

    Hasn't he accrued too many seasons to be on a practice squad? Because if he can, I could just drop his ratings to make him a 40 ish overall and then practice squad him. Then bring him back next year and manually edit his contract back to the proper length.

    IIRC last year, only rookies and maybe 1 year guys can go on the PS.

    Did he give any particular reason that he doesn't put the PUP guys as injured? I can't think of any reason not to.
    Sorry if this is a dumb question...
    Being that it was a rush to get the update out before this crazy weather, is the update just personnel? Or, did certain players ratings actually get changes?
    Kwarren3
    Did he give any particular reason that he doesn't put the PUP guys as injured? I can't think of any reason not to.

    No, but probably because we dont have a PUP list in the game... PUP is different from IR.
    I took a quick glance through the Panthers roster and the guys did a great job. The Panthers aren't keeping a fullback this year (I'll be interested in how their formations look). Daryl Worley has been correctly placed as the No. 2 Corner behind James Bradberry and Mario Addison will be starting with Julius Peppers backing him and/or Charles Johnson up.
    The team also did a great job with each players' equipment. They seem to put a lot of time into this with each roster update to try to get things as accurate as possible.
    Julius Peppers still has the odd face/facemask thing going on, but hopefully that gets correct soon as well.

    I'm wondering the same.
    Is the Bengals practice squad populated correctly?

    So if i want to start in preseason week 1 with the new rosters how do I do that? Do I press custom roster and then start in preseason and that will use the new update one? Because I noticed if I press the live roster then I start with the launch roster. Or do I have to press live and week 1?

    I would also like help on this. Another poster had basically the same question as well. I've been waiting to start a franchise till the rosters are updated after the 53 man had been announced.
    How do you get the silhouette portrait to change to a generic one that matches the players face? I've seen it on some created players, but can you do it to a player that is already in the game? I would like to fix the Giants PK.

    Players on PUP are out for 6 weeks, while IR guys are out for the season and can't come back, unlike PUP and NFI guys.
    The only option for an IR'd guy to come back is through IR-Designated to Return, which isn't an option in Madden. The player has to make the initial 53-man roster, and then be placed on IR the next day(this past Sunday).

    U can't do it to players already in game and they just added the pic to CAP this yr.
    Now if the players a rookie u could just recreate him and then he had a pic instead of blank picture.

    You can do it in CFM. Just go in and edit them. Choose a new face and it'll show up in the menu screens. Or, if you like the face they have, switch it ti anything else, then switch it back and save. Boom. Done.

    Really? YOU could last year. I did it with several Vikings players. That's odd.
    For 49ers these guys aren't on the Madden Update:
    Active 53:
    WR Kendrick Bourne
    C Erik Magnuson
    Practice Squad:
    QB Nick Mullens
    WR DeAndre Carter
    C John Flynn
    LT Darrell Williams Jr.
    On IR:
    WR B.J. Johnson III
    OLB Jimmie Gilbert
    MLB Donavin Newsom
    DT Chris Jones (In FA Pool)
    CB Will Redmond (in FA Pool)
    CB Prince Charles Iworah (in FA Pool)
    FS Don Jones (In FA Pool, also Injured in game, weird that they'd not have him on the 49ers as he was placed on IR)
    SS Chanceller James
    Everyone else is correct, I hate the Practice Squad in the game, because DeAndre Smelter, and Asa Jackson, who are on the 49ers, aren't eligible in the game.

Kerley isn't on the Jets I think .. hes not listed on the official depth chart on Jets.com. also missing WR Damore'ea Stringfellow the 5th or 6th WR. not huge but still a missing player.

    I think Stringfellow is in the FA pool, he appears in FA in CFM mode for me.
    If u guys are looking to add certain guys u can do like me and couple roster makers do look in FA pool for guys who look close enough to player missing and just change names.
    I just did that and now have 53 plus the 10 PS players on browns.
    Just a thought
    Cowboys update.....
    53 looks intact. Missing from the roster are:
    QB-Zac Dysart(IR-in FA pool)
    TE-Connor Hammlett(listed on Cowboys offical site as IR, listed on NFL.com as cut so unsure of his true status-in FA pool)
    CB-Duke Thomas(IR)
    WR-Lance Lenoir(P.Squad)
    OL-Mate Theaker(P.Squad)
    Also.. WR Brian Brown is still listed as practice squad on the Boys website however they cut him to resign Nzechoa. They are both listed. So if they resigned Brown and have yet to make a corosponding move then he is missing as well. If they just haven't updated their website then its fine.

    Started a franchise with the Cowboys with these new rosters. For some odd reason Joe Mixon got cut by the Bengals. Started a new franchise 3 different times and he gets cut everytime. Find that extremely odd.

    I mean, how friggin hard is it to look at the lists of 53 man rosters and make sure ALL 53 PLAYERS are included in your roster update!?!?
    EA - please fire your roster guy and find one of the dozens of guys, on this forum alone, that do a better job than your guy - while doing it in their spare time!!

    I mean, how friggin hard is it to not act like a dick toward a dude who stayed in Orlando to knock these out with 4 fewer days than he has in a normal update week, not to mention the busiest roster week of the season while a 400 mile wide cat 5 hurricane is inbound.
    Kane IS from this forum. He has been voluntarily making equipment fixes for years. He's been scratching and clawing his way through the QA ranks as a damn near minimum wage contractor since 2011 when he was part of the original community day, before there were Game Changers. And now he does a job it took the last guy a decade to get good enough at he could reliably put out a weekly roster. He is our guy.

It happens when you start in both Preseason and when you just skip to Week 1. This issue was not present when I used rovert22044's Sim Rosters for PS4. Seems like sort of a gamebreaker. Thanks!
    So, how much should Brady's ratings be changed after last night? I mean his ratings were off anyway IMO, 97 throwing power my ***. No way he's got the same arm strength as Rodgers, Cam and Mahomes.
    For the guys who are complaining about the roster accuracy, Grow up.
    There is a freaking category 5 hurricane about to hit the whole state of Florida.
    One guy (EquipmentGuru) stayed in the studio so we could have mostly accurate rosters for week one. Be grateful for what you get for once in this damn forum.

    All do respect, did you watch the game ? His accuracy was off. Yea, bad game. But he threw some bombs. A 40 year ols throwing 60 in the air? Cmon 95 maybe. But it isnt weak he proved that. Had a bunch of long throws.

    Yep same thing happened to me. Now i guess we gotta wait longer to start a franchise because thats so stupid, nobody releasing these rookies. I understand they rushed the rosters out for everybody but hopefully well get a fix to this sometime soon. Its impossible to get a real sim feel for a franchise.

    I wish enough people still wanted to play just one SEASON.
    Too much of this unrealistic stuff happens in CFM.
    I miss the days of just being able to start a SEASON with a roster - as you set it.

    Please don't take anything I said as disparaging of Moore. I remember I got a subscription to some scouting service back when I worked at NDSU and had the credentials to get them, and I tried making my own Madden roster (this must have been '06-ish) but the more I looked at it, the more I realized the changes I was making were pretty small. I was actually able to create a chart that would give you a SPD and ACC if you had his 40-time and 20-splits and it matched up almost perfectly to what Moore's inputs were. He had stacks on stacks of propriatary scouting documentation from NFL pro personnel departments, and it didn't go to waste. He was a lot better than people give him credit for because people know their own guys so intimately.
    Example; I could probably produce more accurate ratings for 49ers backups than anyone here or at EA. Give me the Colts, I can barely name three guys on the whole roster. These guys gotta do every single player in basically a SQL query export.

    Oh no.. please don't let this happen to me. My week 1 game was soooo good. This has been an issue for years. They really need to try to put some kind of coding in where 1-3 round picks CANNOT be cut for the first 2, maybe 3 seasons. We rarely see it in the real world, if ever.

    I don't know I mean he looked bad like really bad only a completion % of 44 and up in till the last like drive the Chefs had zero pass rush and yet he still couldn't complete pass. But I remember back in 2014 I thought he was finished done has he sucked for the first like 5 games or so and looked old and washed up. I am expecting him to suck really soon being 40 but considering he looked done for part of 2014 only to turn it around I would say it is to soon and I hate the guy. But I also think the weekly update thing is kind of silly has guys are going to have a bad game or 2 during a season.
    Rosters are pretty damn good considering what Kane is going through. He listens to requests and is as dedicated as anyone I know in his profession. Dude stayed in Miami at the last minute to get this stuff out for you all. Not to mention the gridlock of people trying to get out of Miami. Now he's prob in traffic praying he gets out in time. Instead of complaining, you should be praying for his health and safety. Not only him , but to all of the devs that are in that area. This is real, madden is a game. If you guys are so blurred by the difference , than I suggest you seriously take a hard look into enlightenment and life.
    Best of luck to Dustin , Rex, Clint and all of EA through this horrendous time.
    Prayers are with you and your families.

    Yea...your gonna have to edit the ratings for rookies to where they are "uncuttable"...in Mixon case, I would rate him as the best RB on that team, place him 2nd in the depth chart, and ultimately in cfm the cpu will start him. It will likely happen in real life anyways. For other rookies, just rerate certain thing to where they are 2, or at worst 3 on the chart and they won't be cut

    i wanted NE to win but come on KC beat u fair and square what about NE frout 7 on def

    I never said they didn't. They won the game in just about every facet and NE had no answers for them. But like I also said, it's week 1. KC kicked our asses in 2014 too and everyone said "Brady is done", "the dynasty is over" etc. What was the end result? But I don't want to hijack this thread any longer, so we can continue this in PM if you would like.
    Started Bengals CFM and noticed JuJu Smith-Schuster was cut by Steelers too.
    With that said, amazing EA got this out and kudos for doing so. Thoughts are with them as Irma approaches and will patiently await fixes once they return.
    Players missing from Browns Roster
    Active 53 man Roster:
    #50 BJ Bello LB
    #93 Trevon Coley DT
    #11 Reggie Davis WR
    #43 Kai Nacua S
    Practice Squad
    #74 Travis Averil OL
    #88 JP Holtz TE
    #36 Najee Murray CB
    Good job overall with the rosters! Nacua, and Bello were signed off the practice squad Friday morning after the Browns cut QB Woodrum, and S Pryor.
    Thanks to EA for getting this out and I hope they (and everyone) are all safe.
    One small thing, Steelers CB Cam Sutton on the Week 1 roster is on IR and listed as out for 40 weeks with a torn achilles. In real life he actually hurt is hamstring and is eligible to come off the IR in 8 weeks.

    why using official EA roster? are the community rosters not better and more accurate (ratings, traits, transactions etc.) ? just wondering!

    Another thing worth mentioning. If you don't like the official rosters, and you're on X-Box One, there is the community roster which is damn good in its own right. They're probably more accurate and up-to-date, though I'd say Kane does better ratings work (to be expected considering resources; it helps to have the all-22 at your fingertips) and body forming/equipment (again, better resources/tools to work with), but the community rosters are fantastic as well.

    Also it could be completely unrelated but using the community rosters, I haven't seen as many of the rookie cuts in my CFM. Mixon is still with the Bengals in week 5 of my current CFM.

    Yep same thing happened to me. Now i guess we gotta wait longer to start a franchise because thats so stupid, nobody releasing these rookies. I understand they rushed the rosters out for everybody but hopefully well get a fix to this sometime soon. Its impossible to get a real sim feel for a franchise.

    I don't think it's a matter of the rosters being rushed, CFM roster management is completely screwed up for non user teams. I just started a test CFM with the newest rosters and not only did they release Mixon, they also traded Jeremy Hill to The Colts, then The Colts released him, The Bengals re-signed him for $3.7 million then released him and then The Colts signed him again for $3.3 million, all within a span of two weeks. There is no rhyme or reason for them releasing Mixon, he was the second highest OVR RB on the roster when he got released, he's on a rookie contract and I even looked at Marvin Lewis' scheme preference for running back and it was balanced and Mixon is balanced in the game
    eastcoast49ers
    49ers are missing a few practice squad guys but the main issue is not having WR Kendrick Bourne who made the 53 man roster.

    Exactly. I understand the Hurricane situation, but how we missing players that actually made the squad?

    Just finished week 2 of my preseason and I saw the Jeremy Hill trade to the Colts as well.
    Downloaded the latest roster update this morning (9/9) for the Jets...anyone know why the Jets don't have the 2nd round pick they got for the Richardson deal? Pretty frustrating to not have him on the roster, but all not get anything in return in the eyes of madden.
    Anyone have an idea of when this might change? If ever?

    Cowboys update.....
    53 looks intact. Missing from the roster are:
    QB-Zac Dysart(IR-in FA pool)
    TE-Connor Hammlett(listed on Cowboys offical site as IR, listed on NFL.com as cut so unsure of his true status-in FA pool)
    CB-Duke Thomas(IR)
    WR-Lance Lenoir(P.Squad)
    OL-Mate Theaker(P.Squad)
    Also.. WR Brian Brown is still listed as practice squad on the Boys website however they cut him to resign Nzechoa. They are both listed. So if they resigned Brown and have yet to make a corosponding move then he is missing as well. If they just haven't updated their website then its fine.

    As an update: Connor Hamlett was in fact cut loose via injury settlement.

    I have no idea if/when they'll fix the draft pick, I'd just take control of Seattle in a CFM and trade the pick to the Jets and then relinquish control of Seattle

    Thanks. I was afraid I might get in trouble for that one, but I had to stick up for him.
    Please don't take anything I said as disparaging of Moore. I remember I got a subscription to some scouting service back when I worked at NDSU and had the credentials to get them, and I tried making my own Madden roster (this must have been '06-ish) but the more I looked at it, the more I realized the changes I was making were pretty small. I was actually able to create a chart that would give you a SPD and ACC if you had his 40-time and 20-splits and it matched up almost perfectly to what Moore's inputs were. He had stacks on stacks of propriatary scouting documentation from NFL pro personnel departments, and it didn't go to waste. He was a lot better than people give him credit for because people know their own guys so intimately.
    Example; I could probably produce more accurate ratings for 49ers backups than anyone here or at EA. Give me the Colts, I can barely name three guys on the whole roster. These guys gotta do every single player in basically a SQL query export.

    its very hard to do my comment about moore was about the fact he called hisseif the czar that rubbed me wrong
    and i am can do the same with the broncos spearking of SF they should be good in a few years

    Yeah they need to add OG Danial Mama,Marcus Kemp,Grieg Deiter & Isaiah Williams & roster should be good to go though they will need to add Steven Terrell back to team now with Berry out..

    Seahawks roster is wrong. It has no FB, when Madden is their FB, and QB Boykin is still on roster. He was cut. Also DT McDowell should be on IR.

    Boykin is on the practice squad, so he is correctly on the roster. McDowell in on NFI, not IR
    Chiefsfan881129
    Huh what rule?? They have always added Players to Rosters on PS even created players
    I do wonder if they didn't get them all in due to them closing early for Hurricane Irma guess we will find out soon..

    It used to be two, it's up to four now. I was surprised to see that they actually added veterans and guys that wouldn't normally be eligible to the practice squad in the week one starting point. Only problem was a bunch of guys were still missing.
    NOTE: Obviously this is not a complaint. Assuming everyone is okay after the hurricane, these suggestions are there waiting for when things get back to normal.

    For 49ers these guys aren't on the Madden Update:
    Active 53:
    WR Kendrick Bourne
    C Erik Magnuson
    Practice Squad:
    QB Nick Mullens
    WR DeAndre Carter
    C John Flynn
    LT Darrell Williams Jr.
    On IR:

    DT Chris Jones (In FA Pool)
    CB Will Redmond (in FA Pool)
    CB Prince Charles Iworah (in FA Pool)
    FS Don Jones (In FA Pool, also Injured in game, weird that they'd not have him on the 49ers as he was placed on IR)
    SS Chanceller James
    Everyone else is correct, I hate the Practice Squad in the game, because DeAndre Smelter, and Asa Jackson, who are on the 49ers, aren't eligible in the game.

    Yeah they are missing a lot of 49ers for some reason.
    I wonder why. Are these players not part of the NFLPA?
    eastcoast49ers
    49ers are missing a few practice squad guys but the main issue is not having WR Kendrick Bourne who made the 53 man roster.

    I tweeted to them about this two weeks ago and a few days ago. It seems they don't want to put him in, because other tweets I've done regarding players have been quickly fixed (they fixed the defensive line positions of the 49ers almost the next day, and gave C.J. Beathard a slightly closer face- although they clearly don't have his scan).

    If you guys will keep posting these I'll try and keep a list going today. Or you can copy and add to this.....
    Giants missing: Shane Smith, Calvin Munson and Chad Wheeler

    Ravens missing: FB Patrick Ricard and Jaylen Hill

    Kendrick Bourne, WR for the 49ers... lol he was the first one mentioned in this thread.

    So, how much should Brady's ratings be changed after last night? I mean his ratings were off anyway IMO, 97 throwing power my ***. No way he's got the same arm strength as Rodgers, Cam and Mahomes.

    He made a throw from one twenty to the other in that game. He has an arm, even if not as big as theirs, it's up there.

    Thanks - that's what I ended up doing. Do you know if there's a way to delete the coach from your profile when you hit R3 (PS4) after the trade? Not a huge deal, but pretty annoying I'm now 'technically' also a coach of the Seahawks.
    Thanks in advance.

    Can't u retire him?? Go all way over to right on menu...never done it but just a tthought.
    DoubleZ_3
    All do respect, did you watch the game ? His accuracy was off. Yea, bad game. But he threw some bombs. A 40 year ols throwing 60 in the air? Cmon 95 maybe. But it isnt weak he proved that. Had a bunch of long throws.
    Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk

    Throwing the ball 60 yards is not impressive for NFL QBs man lol
    And when you do throw deep the impressive aspect is the elevation in the pass. Does it have a lot of arc or does it come in on a rope? Any NFL QB can throw deep with enough air under the ball to allow his receiver to run under it. Not every QB can put it on a rope 40 yards down the middle of the field.
    Madden attributes are not assigned on a age scale, 97 THP is 97 THP.
    The main thing THP does is control velocity. No way in hell does Brady's passes have the same zip as guys like Newton and Rodgers.
    Brady is severely overrated in just about every attribute. It illustrates the major flaw with Madden's QB ratings and play. The thing that makes Brady so good is his mastering of his offense, pocket movement, and ability to go through his reads. None of those are accurately modeled in Madden. So instead we get Brady having the same arm strength as Cam Newton and better at throwing on the run than him.

    There should be an option to retire as the Seattle coach. I'm pretty sure it doesn't retire Carroll, it just takes control away from you
    I'm not at all familiar with coding etc, but something in the week 1 rosters has thrown off CFM
    Just loaded game up with Week 1 rosters and forgetting the Rookie Releases for the moment, if you look at other transactions, the game has gone weird. Players being signed, releases, signed and then released again in weeks 2 to 4
    Loaded a game up with pre-season rosters and although only few odd releases, no stupid signing and releasing going on.
    With everything going on in Florida, I'm happy to wait for a fix etc, but if this information gets passed on, I'm sure the would appreciate it.

    So a 40 year old QB throwing 60 yards in the air iant impressive ? Regardless of arc? Hes ****in 40 Lmaoo okay man...not even gunna try to argue thats absurd to say. Find me 38+ year old doing that. Ducks. Manning near the end could hardly throw 40 in air with no ropem Bradys short- medium passes do have zip. As much as cam or rodgers? No but go watch some tape from last year and tell me he doesnt have zip. Hes lost some over the years of course but lets stop acting like he throws ducks like manning was his last couple years.

    Yeah I saw that too when I did my test with the Bengals, they had released and signed Christian Ponder multiple times within a few weeks. I'm assuming every team made moves like this

    Doesnt mean he has a 95+ throw power arm. Sure it's good for someone who is 40, but ratings aren't relative to age. He does not have one of the strongest arms in the NFL.

    This is not new unfortunately, it happened all the time last year if you checked the transaction log regularly. Easy to observe if you look at the league wide transaction list every week. Sometimes it is the result of injuries, sometimes it just seems random. No real impact on overall roster management in CFM though. The rookie stuff is much more concerning.

    No its not impressive. Besides, Brady's age is irrelevant. We were talking about whether or not his THP was overrated in Madden.

    You have a very weird way of agreeing, especially when 1) I never said his passes have no zip, and 2) never implied he throws ducks.
    Or maybe I did say that, but since I cannot read maybe you point to where I said it.
