Madden 25 Review

So far I would go as far as to say it's the best Madden I've played since 05. The hit stick works correctly receivers run routes that make since. Also precision passing work correctly. Kick returns are a too easy is the only real flaw I've noticed so far. There are some extremely good offenses in the game. Defense basically so for for me has been keep them in front then try to stop at red zone unless they make a mistake. I'm not giving out tips this year since no one ever commented on my old tips. So far with my new scheme I've been pretty dominate hopefully it will win me a free copy of Madden 25 Monday night. Defense will be tough to invent this year to slow down potent offenses. I do see some new stuff on D though that is giving me hope for the time being.

NCAA 2014 Review

So far I like the new NCAA there is no defense but there has never been defense in NCAA Football. I like how the receivers interact with the side line and how defenders are allowed to adjust receivers routes. Running is tough because your blockers really get in your way. That is realistic but hard to learn to adjust too. Overall I would rate the game better than last years Madden but I dislike last years Madden on offense. It just did not fit my style of playing football video games. Hopefully NCAA 14 is a precursor to some improvements we will see in Madden 25. I love some plays I saw in defense in the game. I don't by NCAA because the last one I bought I never played again the day after Madden came out. I like where the game is headed. Hopefully Madden headed that same direction when it comes to receiver route running.

Fantasy Football Thoughts For 2014 About Jimmy Graham and Others

I do not believe in drafting tight ends early in drafts however one man is a exception this year. Jimmy Graham with Gronk being injured and Aaron Hernandez in jail his value becomes amazingly high in my mind. I would be willing to consider picking him up at the end of the first round. Fantasy football in 2014 will be entertaining my sleeper pick last year that kept me alive in all my leagues is not at the least a solid second rounder Trent Richardson. I'm undecided who my sleeper is this year. Do too living in Jacksonville and most of my draft parties being with Jaguar fans; Dernard Robinson who I would love to pick near the end of my drafts; may already be gone. Back to the Saints I love Rob Ryan as a defensive coordinator and what he did in Dallas. I know he lost his job but he threw a lot of confusing looks at Offenses and that's why the Saints picked him up. I expect the Saints to contend for the NFC next year and at the least make the playoffs. Daren Sproles may have inflated value in drafts but Sean Payton likes to run more than  that offense ran last year so all the Saints running backs intrigue me. Which puts Graham on the field blocking and freeing him up for more receiving yards. I do not see any way barring injury etc. that Jimmy Graham does not have a huge year.

NBA Free Agency and Dwight Howard are a Joke

Lebron James should talk to Dwight Howard about forming a new super team with him and Chris Paul. Because no player in the modern NBA other than Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan are able to win with a team built around them. Don't get me wrong the Lakers have tried Miami's approach a few times back with Karl Malone and Gary Payton at the end of their careers and were not able to pull it off. Then again with Dwight Howard and Steve Nash last year. The Heat could simply trade Bosh for Howard and pick up Chris Paul and make a true free agent dream team. I'm so tired of the BS of free agency in the NBA. At least in the NFL the cap actually works because you need 53 players. In the NBA you need 12 players. A player should have to stay with the team that drafts him if that team is willing to pay that player league maximum pay and end this Bull Crap of players forming there own teams which creates no league parity.

Aaron Hernandez In Jail, Out Of The NFL

Aaron Hernandez In Jail, Out Of The NFL

After a lengthy murder investigation, law enforcement has now collected
enough evidence to officially arrest Aaron Hernandez. With the arrest,
the New England Patriots quickly released the standout tight end,
moving on from a tricky situation.

As far as Hernandez goes, his problems are just beginning. No one knows
for sure what happened on that night that semi-professional football
player Odin Lloyd was killed, but the Patriots now have at least some
closure months before the start of the NFL season.

With Hernandez now officially gone, the focus turns to the other
standout tight end on the roster, Rob Gronkowski. After battling injuries
last year, he was also forced to have some offseason surgeries that will
probably keep him out of the first few games of the season. New England
went from having too many tight ends to not having enough proven
talent in a hurry.

The good news for the Patriots is that they will have a few months to try
and prepare their backups for a bigger role. They might not be totally
prepared, but Tom Brady has a knack for making the most out of a sticky
situation and you can expect him to find a way to put up some numbers
in fantasy football 2013. He has only had a few star pass catchers in his entire time in
2013</a>. He has only had a few star pass catchers in his entire time in
the NFL, yet he has put up impressive numbers each and every year.

Losing Hernandez hurts, but the Patriots have a stronger running game
these days that takes a bit of pressure off. They are no longer forced to
throw the ball on every big down, so that will help them most likely win
their division and still get into the playoffs. What happens after that is
anyone’s guess.

The loss of Hernandez definitely stings, but it is something the
organization was prepared for. They will bounce back eventually,
especially when Gronkowski is ready to go.

NCAA Football 14 Demo Review Continued

I really like the demo especially for a demo. I've saw very little line flaws. Much like Madden 13 overload blitzes work well and a few others but there is descent protection with proper adjustments. Alabama is very though to beat with Virginia Tech on heisman difficulty. I almost won but my receiver fumbled to lose the game. The seams and edges are very difficult to guard. Much like every NCAA the offense has a clear advantage when two good players are playing. The only thing the defense does well, probably too well is react to balls in the air. Much like every football game ever created the corners react to the ball while the other receivers run around oblivious. One nice change is there are less fumbles than in last years version which was a fumble fest I caused a fumble almost every game I played last year. This year the recievers fumble more often than running backs probably stat related to their carry ratings but I haven't saw player ratings so unsure. I will buy or rent the game for sure and play some until Madden 25 comes out which is what I do almost every year.
