My comments on the colts team on madden


Recommended Posts

We can stop the run when you choose to blitz

They get burned easily

Fleener,Avery,collie, Hilton, Brazill have a habit of dropping balls

Hilton and Brazill are above average returners

Luck is ridiculously good

But gets sacked a lot

We can't play man

We can pressure the QB

We aren't consistent running the ball

Mollie takes up double teams

Collie is ridiculously easy to injure

Zibi can force fumbles

I said this elsewhere, but Collie's injury score is only 15 pts higher than Bob Sander's. Collie is very prone to injury, so be warned if you're playing a franchise mode. My opinion?... Use proven old veterans, like T.O., Chad Ochocinco, and Randy Moss. All three in my franchise were cut by their respective teams by week 1 of the regular season and were all available via free agency. Yes, they're a locker-room menace, but it's a video game, so it's a non-issue.

I added John Henderson in Free Agency and made the trade for Vontae.

Week 4 vs Jacksonville Avery out with a broken colar bone.

Fleener is a beast and can run away from anyone on the fly route.

I am enjoying the quick play call option, it is keeping me from just going to the money plays that madden always has.

The tackling is a JOKE, this new Engine is pure Benny hill with people just running into each other and falling down.

My friend called me last night and was telling me about how Reggie Wayne can barely catch anything. He said Wayne drops 1 or 2 passes almost every game he plays with the colts. He said one time Wayne dropped 3 passes in a row. That is pretty ridiculous.

Anyone know when the Roster update is coming today? I have already heard it will be today, but I was hoping it wouldn't be until later, after all the cuts are made, so hopefully all the teams will have the correct players heading into the season, by tonight.

But honestly I think I may be expecting too much from the people at EA/Madden. They probably don't care that much about it, seeing how their game has made little improvement over the past 7 years.

I was wondering about when the Roster update is coming out too. I was told tonight but can't find anything anywhere that confirms this. I don't want to get to carried away with my "connected career" untill the update comes out so I have Vontae

Ya exactly. I just got the game but I don't want to start a season until i have the real Colts. Otherwise you just short sell yourself.

When I've played , just about everyone has good hands, not many drops at all.

The Oline seems to be better run blocking than pass blocking. Don't unnecessarily move Luck around unless its necessary. Always look to throw first.

I've been getting great pressure with Mathis, Freeney, Redding, Nevis . In that order.

Angerer is a tackling machine. I've caused some nice fumbles on run stuffs with him.

Bethea blitzes very well in the right situation.

Watch yourself when the opponent runs to the outside, if that DE or OLB don't get passed their blocker, it could be very bad news. That's seems to be a particular weakness with our personnel in a 3-4 at times, not always.

Play to the whistle, don't assume someone is down, after they fall ON someone.

Our DBs do very well in man coverage. But they can get beat deep if you don't have safety help.

Fleener is Not as good as Clark running the straight up the field. He doesn't beat his defender like DC used too. he still has good hands but crossing routes,slants are his strength. He run block well upfield, not as well at the line.( I used to hot route Clark and he'd beat his man and get inside the safety almost every time.)

Allen clears running lanes very well, good hands, not very fast though.

Sub in Hilton or Avery for Return duties.

The default scheme is power running team but there is a lot of great pass plays, 5 receiver plays.

Davis should be a Colt very soon via updated roster.

I suggest reordering the RB depth, ignore the ratings, put Brown, Ballard, Carter.

On running plays , try to run to Allen's side

My take on the M13 Colts:

Luck is awesome! He puts the passes exactly where they need to be using Total Control Passing.

RBs are weak, but Brown, while weak receiving, is serviceable with good blocking.

OL is mediocre, but serviceable if you adjust blocking.

WRs are FAST!

Avery drops too many balls.

Reggie catches everything.

Fleener is a beast in the seams.

Our secondary (with Davis) plays very well.

Mixing up blitzes & coverages is necessary to bring heat, but it works fairly well.

Our LB's are fast!

We are a stud NT & ILB from having a top 5 D.

We need a few quality OL, a good RB and a couple years experience for our receivers to be a very good Offense.

    • I'd say divide everyone into two groups. Those who want a shot at the Colts, and those who want another team. If only one person wants another team, they get it. That way you at least have a few that are vested in non-Colts picking.   After you clear as many non-Colts folks as possible, do a lottery for everyone (lottery with team selection order).   Purely my opinion, but I think first come first serve hurts interest level. And I think it's important to try and be fair, but also match folks to a team they are interested in. 
    • I'm going to believe this tweet over the one you posted. Just seems too far out of character for Ballard to offer MORE than 15.5 per year for Watt.   Charles Robinson @CharlesRobinson Unless the #Colts, #Browns and #Titans are straight up lying, this is not what I’ve been told. I’ve been told by multiple Watt suitors that the $23 million guaranteed in Watt’s Arizona deal was near ceiling for their total $. Teams were trying to get Watt for roughly $12 mil per.
    • I agree but I’m starting to think it’s inevitable. Guard market is a little younger and cheaper in free agency. So we go that way or draft a guy that can start day 1. I would draft if him regardless of LT plans
    • My "in general" thoughts on Oke....  He's a great kid, hard worker, but average traits. He was a slightly above average ILB at Stanford. IMO, he was/is undersized for an ILB/MIKE. He was the best Stanford had to fill the middle, so I understand why they had him there. Stepping up to the NFL though is a challenge in the middle. He succeeded when his scope was limited to passing downs LB. He was given more snaps, and played earlier downs last year, and simply struggled. He's never really been a "fast processor" (like Leonard is), but his bigger issue IMO is simply vs the run, and especially in traffic. He's not been physical enough to shed a lot of blockers, and isn't fast enough processing or agility wise to avoid the blocking in the first place.   Maybe the game slows down for him in year 3? Maybe he picks up good weight and strength? IMO, he'd have to significantly improve in both those areas to grow into a 3 down guy. May sound simple, but it's a lot to ask though. If he can't, we need to look at going back to a MIKE by committee situation. I know it doesn't sound ideal, but the Walker/Oke combo in 2019 was pretty darn good. Both did well at their limited rolls. Walker was a tackle machine, and Oke did much much better focusing on the passing game. That said, the fly in the ointment though is the rip/liz stuff added to the D. I think that impacted a lot of guys in pass coverage including DBs and LBs. Good for some, bad for others. Year 3 will be interesting.   As far as FS, I'm cautiously optimistic there. Good the first half of the season when playing downhill vs what was in front of him. Very poor the second half when QBs started testing him. IMO, same weaknesses he had in college. He's a monster hitter, but get's burnt on the back end. I do think he can take a step forward this year so long as he's committed to re-working his game, and being more disciplined. That said, FS is a wildcard to me. And back to the rip/liz impact, if we continue to play more C3 single high, traits like Hooker's will be missed. 
    • In support of East Streets view...    what I’ve read about Williams since he joined the Giants is...   disappointment.  Underachiever.  And when his play started to tick up what I read was...    sure, he’s playing better now...   it’s his contract year.    Personally....   not a big fan of players like this...   Clowney too.   There’s a term for players like this....    coach killer.    They're paid to be great.   And they flash greatness from time to time.  It’s a tease.   But not nearly enough to be worth their money.   They’re paid on their reputation, but ultimately they rarely give you enough bang for the buck.    Pass.
