So I'm curious about what everyone thinks about Madden 2013. I know this fanpost is 7-8 months too late but I will be picking up the game soon to give it a try. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending how you look at it) I was teaching a lot of challenging classes in the Fall semester so I wasn't able to spend much time on watching the Bills or playing Madden.
Here are my questions:
1.) How are the Bills in Madden 2013? Good, Average, Weak? Are they comparable to the real life Bills?
2.) Who are the "beasts" in the game? Would you consider any Bills to be beasts? I have to imagine CJ is a beast in the game. Is Mario Williams a beast?
3.) Who are your most undervalued players in the game? Meaning players that you can pick up for cheap (typically have low awareness) but have incredible physical skills? Maybe you can switch some players to other positions (like the Reggie Bush to WR trick last year)?
4.) What's your best draft pick you ever made? I remember drafting a TE in Madden 2004 that turned out to be unstoppable. I remember thinking...wow this guy is just like Antonio Gates (2004 was his breakout year) and I think I drafted him in the 5th or 6th round.
5.) How do you play GM with the Bills? My first step was to resign the valuable players, focus on acquiring draft picks and then target some talented (but undervalued) WRs in free agency. My drafting style was to ALWAYS go BPA but I would go crazy for the FAST LBers and CBs with good man coverage skills (that was my Al Davis vice). I'd try to get pressure using lots of blitzing to force mistakes. Unfortunately, I can't play offense worth a dime with the Bills so I used to admire how Chan could actually get offensive production from these guys.
