Just saw it over at Ea on their blog. I'm on my sidekick at work or I'd post the link. It also has three pictures of Ronnie in the wildcat. I will post the link when I get home

The logo on the helmet looks weird, and Ricky looks odd too.

Ronnie looks great in shotgun though!

oops, didnt actually read it before posting.

Yea, one of the comments was they were going to fix the logo, they knew it was too big..

Still, the logo is actually pretty different than our current one. Looks like the late 60s-early 70s version. I might be reading to deep into this, but still, it got me wondering...

By the way, did anybody notice the logo on the helmet? Looks like a modified version of the late 60s-early 70s helmet logo.

Hmmm....

Ya it does, maybe we will go that direction as well, either that its a **** up/still to early before they fix little things like that.

i wonder if we will be the only team with this option? I know some other teams started trying to copy our wildcat last year too.

I think the logo looks pretty frickin' cool :d-day:

Yep that's the article. And now that you guys mention it the logo does look a bit different. Are the jerseys a different color or is that just how it looks on my phone?

Either way I'm amped!!

I hope we are the only team that uses that, i like it cause it will give me an edge in madden, I win mostly using the fins with a crappier rating so adding confusing will make it all so much easier.

I love that it's added, but I also hate it. If it is as "unstoppable" in the game as it was in real life, it will suck to play against. You just know that people will use it all game long, especially for teams like the Titans, where they could probably sub in VY.

Similar to the Full House formation, it sucks, even against blitz's it almost always gets a good gain. Or the HB Direct snap, qb sneak, fb dive. Wildcat could be a cheeser's dream.

Or it could be simple to stop with a decent blitz. Who knows.

But I do hope Miami is the only playbook to have it in it. With that said too, I hope singleback - bunch will still be in our playbook.

Sneak Peek: Wildcat in Madden NFL 10

by EA_IanCummings (http://www.finheaven.com/forums/?authorId=EA_IanCummings) 04/20/09 4:53 PM


Hello Madden faithful! This week marks a very big week across the Madden Nation in terms of news - gameplay footage, the cover athlete, and some feature / technology releases. What you might imagine is that is that we (the development team) are extremely busy trying to get the game in good shape for everyone to see. So since we don't actually have a ton of time to spend on the blog, and the marketing / PR folks will be releasing a ton of news about the game anyway, we thought the least we could do was just drop a few quick screenshots to showcase some new stuff we've added.

After our official gameplay footage is released on GameTrailers this week, our playbook gurus are going to follow up soon after that with a full blog detailing the Wildcat in Madden NFL 10 - its realistic implementation, it's usage, and even footage of it being run. So we hope this holds you over until then. :)
(P.S. we already are working on the Dolphins helmet logo being too large)

With the phins drafting Pat White and the wildcat such a huge part of the phins offense now, does anyone feel the wildcat will be inserted into madden??

04-27-2009, 05:33 PM
Yes, a recent EASports blog entry already has screencaps, it was going in regardless of Pat White.

Should be really cool.

Hopefully it can't be used in online play. If so, cheesing will be unbearable in Madden 10. Some cheeseball picks Tenn, and uses Miami's playbook. Then uses Wildcat plays the whole game with Young at QB, with Johnson and White.

Is it just me, or does the logo on the side of the helmet look bigger? The sun part I mean.

The wildcat wont be Cheesy......

When I first heard that EA Sports was adding the Wildcat formation to the game this year, the first emotion I felt was panic. If anything will break the game this year and become the most overused formation at the Madden Challenge, the Wildcat is it.


Not to worry, Frazier promised. "I understand the concern, and if we were adding it as a part of downloadable content or something after the fact where we didn't have the time to fix the AI [artificial intelligence] to go with it, then the Wildcat could be a real problem. But the fact that we're adding it during our developmental cycle and we have a chance to take a look at those AI issues that you're concerned about, I don't think it's going to be a problem.



Just as we're adding the Wildcat, we're also making sure our defenses are ready for the Wildcat.
-- "Madden NFL 10" Senior Producer
Phil Frazier

"Just as we're adding the Wildcat, we're also making sure our defenses are ready for the Wildcat. Just as you saw with the Dolphins, they had great early success with it. Ronnie Brown was putting up huge numbers with it. But then throughout the season, teams started to adjust and they figured out ways to stop it. We had to program that same logic into our defense as well, so you don't see the same five-touchdown performance out of the Wildcat like the Dolphins had early on.


"We have a guy by the name of Anthony White, and he does all our playbooks. He is kind of a playbook hobbyist and he buys coaching books, coaching schemes, and he tries to get his hands on black-market copies of playbooks. All he does is watch NFL tape and read playbooks, and he really nailed the Wildcat."
