    Are you serious? You need to watch more football, it happens a lot.

    There are glitches that should have been fixed, especially with blocking, or having a receiver run out of bounds on a pattern. There is of course the amazing awareness a CB has to knock down the ball at its highest point (while jumping 3 feet in the air and 5 yards long) without looking on deep patterns, but cannot even pick up a WR entering his zone.

    Still I like the new passing game, with the controls changed it is annoying to run and throw the ball away quickly but the precision passing actually makes it possible to complete outs and posts/flags under coverage.

    Re: It's all Madden's fault...

    I see it, but not too often when the receiver is wide open. Also, occasionally the WR runs out of bounds for no reason w/o the ball even being thrown his way. The CB thing is kind of annoying, although it comes in handy when you're playing D. While, I do think diving was far-fetched on the early NFL2K games where you could catch a guy by diving if you were 10 yards behind him, I think Madden is the exact opposite, you dive and just seem to float in mid air w/o going forward, while I know you won't dive 10 yards, it's not unrealistic to see a player dive for 3 yards. Also, the challenges are terrible on Madden. I challenged a play the other day, b/c the RB hit the pylon diving out of bounds, but they marked him out at the 1, and they 'overturned' the call, but I didn't get a touchdown, they placed it on the 1/2 yard line. I also know that it's rare in real life, but is it even possible to return a punt or kick for a TD on that game. I think I'll eventually break a kickoff, but punts are ridiculous, I end up faircatching almost every time, b/c if I don't I get trucked and fumble. The punter has to boom it 50+ yards in order to get enough clearance to catch the ball and start moving before you're trucked. As for controlling the receiver for reception purposes, that's been an option since at least 98, if not before, as I remember on Madden 98 for Sega Saturn, I had to break routes to dive for the ball on occasion.

    Re: It's all Madden's fault...

    Challenges do suck in Madden. I have no problem with the wrong call being made occasionally, but having the wrong outcome to a challenge is stupid. Diving depend on a players jumping ability, so some player can dive about half as well as others.

    Occasionally you'll return a kickoff for a TD if you use a player with a good KR rating (they seem to block better for those players for some reason) and decent speed. Punt are a little trickier, especially in 06 since your player rarely seem to block, they just run towards you and let the defender by them.

    Superstar mode is a huge waste of time though, it is so boring.

    I love when I'm playing Madden and I bomb one deep to Moss, only to have like Denard Walker leap 80 feet in the air without turning around and bat the ball down.

    Re: It's all Madden's fault...

    Another thing about Madden I cannot stand is the line, I'm sure all of you have heard this one, "Look at this one here, he had him all lined up for the big hit and then, he just missed. There's a lot of that going on in the NFL today, players looking for the big hit, instead of wrapping up the ball carrier." This is most annoying when it happens accidentally as you're scrolling through defensive players to get to the player where the ball is, and he still says it.

    Re: It's all Madden's fault...

    This verison of madden really isnt to top notch becuase the developers have been focusing on the Xbox 360's launch of madden 2006. That verison will be amazing.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!
