Not sure how the "Superstar" mode works into Franchise mode yet but....

I will input my Heisman Trophy winning Daniel Marino (had to make him 3 years older and added on 3" and 40 lbs) from NCAA 2006 and groom him to be our new superstar QB.

Other then that, I limit myself to one trade per season, other then making the correct Roster changes to update the FA market.

Oh yeah. And cut almost every draft pick Wanny had a hand in choosing. The years of 2001, 2002 and 2003 were awful. Except for Chambers in 2001, Randy in 2002 and (arguably) Taylor Whitley in 2003 they have all been busts. So those three can stay. Although Bell is impressing in TC, but with Jones and Schulters, I am sure i can change one to a different position.

Did you say Whitley wasn't a bust? You sure you didn't mean Hadnot? ;p

Yeah. Sorry. My bad. Hadnot is showing some promise.

I think 89-90 max would be more appropriate with his top speed.

If you update the roster, you can't get Rob Konrad since the update will have him retired.

I'm waiting for the update before I start a franchise. Until then, I'll be importing Chris Leak into Superstar Mode.

I'm not going to play a season unless I can do it online against 31 other HUMAN opponents. If not, I guess I'll just play online games one at a time. Playing the CPU is GAY!

Superstar mode sucks. IMHO.

YOu can play it sure. Daniel Marino (the twice I tried) got drafted by Oakland first and then the Jets. Can you imagine, the Jets. I played until training camp. It sucked ***. Interviews are a no brainer (A) it was an honor to be drafted B) You guys are lucky to have me C) How can you afford to pay me is an example of your three choices in one interview. If you wanted to succede, which would you pick.

Screw Superstar and stick to franchise. Ronnie rocks ( but watch the madden training camp drill, in all madden under rushing attack 1 blocker 4 people attacking!!!) and, finally, Zach is the rated in the top three MLB;s of the game. JT fell too the top 6 but still, I like our team.

After I modified the roster to reflect our O line changes, and signed Schulters, we are ranked an 85 overall. Equivalent with the Falcons. GO AQUA!!!

Upgrade Hadnot and Carey, correct place the current starters, probably upgrade one of the Qbs, (whichever one I am not pissed at during the season) upgrade Boston to last years stats, same for booker, and make the ACC on welker pretty high.

Depends on who you play. You may play people that play like what they see on TV and there are people who only care about wins and will play cheaply to do so.

Well what i did was i signed Schulters and Middleton. They both cost ya some big money because i did have almost 6 million left, now i have like 1 million.

All i wished they would fix is the stupid salary cap that increases 3x as much as it should every year, the DB inability to adjust and bat down a ball. Constant pocket movers (semi fixed with the qb cone). Improve on the create a stadium mode. Then add in some new animations (done) and add in a whole list of maybe 10,000 maddenisms (or take them out all together). Can anyone who has played the game yet tell me if any of these are fixed?

Tackling animations are alot better, thers alot of variety. When i play CB i go for the pick not the swat and its good, its not like NCAA where they don't jump they jump pretty good. Salary cap still sucks. U have to stay in the pocket behind your blockers b/c it takes longer to get the ball out so u need the proteciton, b/c when a guy is near u in 05 u can just wing it but now it takes liek 2 seconds to aim to the guy and throw it.
