I gave up playing online year back. I think it was 09 when a QB sneak worked everytime on 4th down it got stupid. Numpties always doing it and no matter what you did (as you knew it was coming) you could do nothing.

There were just to many planks playing. So i have not since. The thing is whenever 12 comes out its not as good as 11 or if 10 its not as good as 9. I think it's maybe you get used to an aspect of play and then it's changed but once you get used to that etc etc.

it is amazing how far they can go? Can you imagine madden 20? The mind boggles!

I play full length games and ended up throwing 8 interceptions. Granted my decision making when throwing the ball can be terrible, but everything RG3 threw stuck to the defenders hands like glue.

I've started to supersim the first two quarters and then play the second half. Can make for some interesting scenarios.

And despite my moaning, I'm starting to really enjoy this!

Has anyone noticed that at the start of the game during the coin toss cut scene, of you loose the other team ALWAYS picks to receive the ball ? I've never had the cpu pick to kick first

That's what most teams do in real life though.

Yep, on NCAA they always choose to kick too.

If I win I usually let the opposition take the ball, gives me a false sense of security if I'm down I receive the ball in the 2nd half

Really ? I thought it was better to have first possesion at the start of the third ?

Either way, 100% of the time in Madden get's boring...

Teams want the ball to start the game because they want the first chance to take the lead.

Tony Sparano used to give possession away if he won the toss but he's no longer a Head Coach and I think Rex Ryan did it when the Jets defense was more dominant.
