I can try and force trades for anyone that super wants off their teams, cant guarantee where you go though

ScareChan posted...
so the Saints signed 3 QBs to replace Brees and then went with a rookie they drafted after me?

I am actually super down for that. Hot rookie to rookie chemistry coming up.

Probably one of my favorite stories of AI panic

The 2020 Outlook

NFC North first

@@@Chicago Bears
2019 Record: 6-10
Coach History
2019 - Matt Nagy
2020 - Paul Ranson
QBs Started:
2019- Mitch Trubisky
2020- Mitch Trubisky

In this universe Trubisky is a middle range QB so instead of dumping him they dumped the coach. But the real tragedy here is they dumped Ekeler who was pretty much the entire offense for the team last season. They are defense heavy, really the defense is kinda nuts but the offense looks to go nowhere

Prediction: 7-9

@@@Green Bay Packers
2019 Record: 8-7-1 (Won Division)
Playoff Record: 1-1
Coach History
2019 - Matt LaFleur
QBs Started:
2019- Aaron Rodgers
2020- Aaron Rodgers

The Packers lucked into a division win, then they crushed me in the playoffs before losing a shootout with SB champ Dallas. So things look decent? They do, Packers gained 3 X Factor players and have a total of 5 now. They picked up a stud CB and well didnt really do much in free agency. The only negative Aaron Jones is gonna miss the first quarter of the season, but he missed all of 2019 so who cares!

Prediction: 11-5, Division win

@@@Minnesota Vikings
2019 Record: 5-10-1
Coach History
2019 - Mike Zimmer
QBs Started:
2019- Kirk Cousins
2020- Kirk Cousins

Whats new with the Vikings? Well they swapped X Factor WRs, Thielen out and Diggs In. And uh their big off-season acquisition was a backup QB in Ryan Fitzpatrick! The Vikings will not have Dalvin Cook for 2 games and their defense is mostly banged up. I don't see great things here

Prediction: 5-11

@@@Detroit Lions
2019 Record: 6-9-1
Coach History
2019 - Matt Patricia
QBs Started:
2019- Matthew Stafford
2020- Matthew Stafford

Lions had the honor of drafting the first bust of the draft, and they also made 0 free agency moves of note. They also let a lot of their 2nd stringers walk in free agency. I just don't see many positives coming out of this especially when Stafford was flat out one of the worst QBs last season

Prediction: Bottom 5 team

===========NFC East==========
@@@Philadelphia Eagles
2019 Record: 10-6 (Wildcard)
Playoff Record: 0-1
Coach History
2019 - Doug Pederson
QBs Started:
2019- Carson Wentz
2020- Carson Wentz

I lost around 12 players due to some insane madden financials of starting with a week 11 roster. I think I didn't take too many hits though losing Kamu Greiger Hill probably wasn't ideal. I also made a trade in the draft of trading down to get 8 players onto the team to even make my 53. In said draft I grabbed a Day 1 Starter Strong Safety (moved Malcom Jenkins to free), a starting ROLB, and a Slot WR with a hidden dev trait. So 3 hits of 8 picks is pretty good. The issue is I really have very little to throw too, and I have trash CBs....so no idea

Prediction: 9-7, wildcard?

@@@Washington Redskins
2019 Record: 6-10
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Jay Gruden
QBs Started:
2019- Case Keenum
2020- Dwayne Haskins Jr

So props to the Skins they let Keenum go, even if Haskins doesnt work this is an improvement. The Skins signed two corners to secure their CBs, Ryan Kerrigan had a ridiculous year last year, and they drafted more young WR talent. I think this really all boils down to QB play and I air on the side of doubt

Prediction: 6-10

@@@New York Giants
2019 Record: 9-7 (Wildcard)
Playoff Record: 1-1
Coach History
2019 - Pat Shurmur
QBs Started:
2019- Eli Manning
2020- Devlin Hodges

A weird situation here! Eli Manning played great considering what I kinda expected. The Giants even won a playoff game, but he retired. So instead of starting Daniel Jones, the Giants swooped up Devlin Hodges after free agency and that sounds bad but he did have a crazy year with the steelers finishing ranked #2 among QBs. The Giants still need WRs and are gonna try an aging Emanual Sanders. There is a lot of good questions here

Prediction: 8-8

@@@Dallas Cowboys
2019 Record: 11-4-1 (Won Division)
Playoff Record: 2-0
Superbowl Record: 1-0
Coach History
2019 - Jason Garrett
QBs Started:
2019- Dak Prescott
Relief: Cooper Rush (1 Game)
2020- Dak Prescott

Hate to say this but how does this team take a step back? Well they did make some errors here and there. They let Amari Cooper go only to pay Nelson Agholor?! They made a bad 1st rd draft pick...but it was #32 so thats not as much of a miss. Then they drafted a B8 player 5tarscream and suddenly their safeties look terrifying. I beat this team once last year and it was by the skin of my teeth.

I mean the X Factor is the AI can be wacky

@@@Atlanta Falcons
2019 Record: 8-6-2 (Won Division)
Playoff Record: 0-1
Coach History
2019 - Dan Quinn
QBs Started:
2019- Matt Ryan
2020- Matt Ryan

This is it. Matt Ryans regressing, he may lose his X Factor any week now. The Falcons are also starting without Julio and Calvin Ridley for 2 weeks. Much like the real Falcons, I've been fooled enough

Prediction 8-8

@@@New Orleans Saints
2019 Record: 6-10
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Sean Payton
QBs Started:
2019- Drew Brees
2020- Jake Fromm *R*

Saints had quite an offseason just at QB. 2019 was a failure despite them doing well irl with that roster. Brees retires, and the Bucs sign Josh Rosen, Brandon Allen, and Colt McCoy in a panic. Then in the draft take Jake Fromm and go with him. But the LT just got X Factor and they drafted Quick Fastbreak to pair with god tier Michael Thomas. If Fromm can be even a middle ranging QB they got this???

Prediction: 10-6, Division winner

@@@Tampa Bay Bucs
2019 Record: 7-8-1
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Bruce Arians
QBs Started:
2019- Jameis Winston
2020- Jameis Winston? Jucker Jukkie?

This is a tough one, because I dont know what QB is playing. Winston? 0 shot, B8 Jukkie? A shot! But the starter is listed as Winston and uh good luck? They also drafted Maniac64 who has a storied history of just always being on the Bucs lol. Kamu Grugier Hill who was my former linebacker went here, he did well enough to elevate himself to Star status last season

Prediction: 9-7 with Jukkie, 6-10 with Winston

@@@Carolina Panthers
2019 Record: 5-11
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Ron Rivera
QBs Started:
2019- Kyle Allen
2020- Cam Newton

This is the alternate world where Rivera stays and Newton returns as the QB. This is not a bad team on paper but uh Madden has taught me it hates the panthers

Prediction 7-9

============NFC West============
@@@San Francisco 49ers
2019 Record: 7-8-1
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Kyle Shanahan
QBs Started:
2019- Jimmy G
2020- Jimmy G

49ers probably get an A for offseasons. They got my old starting Free safety whose now literally a backup as they draft KCF, they also drafted TE JC Gamer so they have 2 stud TEs now. They also grabbed a starting left tackle. Is there any reason the 49ers lose? Just madden luck they are a strong strong favorite

Prediction: 12-4, Division Winner

@@@St. Louis Rams
2019 Record: 7-9
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Sean McVay
QBs Started:
2019- Jared Goff
2020- Jared Goff

I think Rams made positive moves but losing Kupp for the first half of the year? rough. Nothing splashy on defense made move wise but they already were really good. I just wonder why you don't consider upgrading from Goff when he was bottom tier?

Prediction: 7-9

@@@Arizona Cardinals
2019 Record: 7-9
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Kliff Kingsbury
QBs Started:
2019- Kyler Murray
2020- Kyler Murray

Madden thinks very highly of Murray, literally just missing the top 10 QBs last season. The Cardinals lost Larry Fitz to retirement and made the smart move they loaded up with a star HB, drafted a prospect WR, and signed a stud TE. And then the HB Ekeler got injured and is out for the year but they still have a fading David Johnson. The real question is, hows that Def?

Prediction: 9-7

@@@Seattle Seahawks
2019 Record: 14-2 (Won Division, #1 Seed)
Playoff Record: 1-1
Coach History
2019 - Pete Carroll
QBs Started:
2019- Russell Wilson
2020- Russell Wilson

Tyler Lockett is now an X Factor! Woo. Oh what? Hes out for 5 weeks, yeesh. Who else they got? A DK metcalf that didnt reach his real life potential? oh boy. Yea the Seahawks are in for a rough offense again, but at least the defense got WarTha...oh you traded him for a draft pick? Why?

===========AFC North=============
@@@Baltimore Ravens
2019 Record: 9-7 (Won Division)
Playoff Record: 1-1
Coach History
2019 - John Harbaugh
QBs Started:
2019- Lamar Jackson
2020- Lamar Jackson

The Ravens are flawed in Madden. Why is that you ask? Well they dont understand how to replicate what Lamar does in this game. Which is weird since they knew how to do Vick 16 years ago? Lamar runs a little but mostly just passes and scrambles slightly, its a much less scary team in Madden AIs hands. But the defense is still legit, new X Factor players and an Arti on the end to make it scarier.

Prediction: 10-6 Division Winner

@@@Cincinnati Bengals
2019 Record: 6-10
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Zac Taylor
QBs Started:
2019- Andy Dalton
2020- Justin Herbert *R*

Biggest misstep here was holding onto a fossilized geno atkins, who then just gets injured leaving them down and with no real successor. But Daltons the backup now as he hands it off to first round pick Justin Herbert. Oh and joe mixons banged up. I don't have quite a lot of faith about this team, they might be the worst but the mystery of their QB will determine their future

Prediction: 3-13

@@@Pittsburgh Steelers
2019 Record: 9-7
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Mike Tomlin
QBs Started:
2019- Mason Rudolph (5 Games)
Relief: Devlin Hodges (11 Games)
2020- Ben Roethlisberger

Devlin Duck Hodges was 7-3 as a starter and they didn't resign him? Ben Roethlisberger is back, but his 2019 injury has set him into advanced regression and we know Mason Rudolph the backup cant play. 0 free agency moves of note, bad draft picks too....Yeah I don't see this being a good year

Prediction: 5-11

@@@Cleveland Browns
2019 Record: 8-8
Coach History
2019 - Freddie Kitchens
Playoff Record:
QBs Started:
2019- Baker Mayfield
2020- Baker Mayfield

Browns focused on the defense in the offseason and got a new X Factor power for Denzel Ward. The Offense? No odell for a bit is troubling. Here is an upside, Baker Mayfield was much better than real life ranking #10 last season

@@@New York Jets
2019 Record: 8-8
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Adam Gase
QBs Started:
2019- Sam Darnold (10 Games)
Relief: David Fales (6 Games)
2020- Sam Darnold

Hard to say what this team was last season, hard to do much with a very bad backup. Darnolds 10 games were enough for 19th in comparison to the 11 from Devilin Hodges with the Steelers that got him 2nd in the QB ranking. Jets drafted FS Menji but hes out for the year so they won't really see him yet. The Jets Def isnt great but it has upsides? The jets offense is drying up, but they did get an upgrade at TE even if Jack Doyle is molasses. Still I don't think this is enough

Prediction: 6-10

@@@Buffalo Bills
2019 Record: 9-7 (Wildcard)
Playoff Record: 1-1
Coach History
2019 - Sean McDermott
QBs Started:
2019- Josh Allen (15 Games)
Relief: Matt Barkley (1 Game)
2020- Josh Allen

This team was flat out the most aggressive in free agency for better or worse. They overpaid on Jay Ajayi, but also landed Amari Cooper at WR, Chris Jones at DT, Ngakoue at RE, Hilton at CB, and uh I guess they signed the Titans #1 draft pick bust QB? This team was very close to the division last year and smashed the patriots in the playoffs, its their time

Prediction: 11-5

@@@New England Patriots
2019 Record: 10-6 (Won Division)
Playoff Record: 0-1
Coach History
2019 - Griffin Murphy
QBs Started:
2019- Tom Brady
2020- Tom Brady

I have nothing but gloom here. Brady is getting worse. He was #14 last year and regressing even more. Edelman lost his X Factor, Michels hurt, they traded McCourty away, and just have a lot of Defensive injuries. All hope relies on B8 rookie Mysterious Stan.

Prediction: 7-9

@@@Miami Dolphins
2019 Record: 5-11
Playoff Record:
Coach History
2019 - Brian Flores
QBs Started:
2019- Ryan Fitzpatrick
2020- Teddy Bridgewater

Fitzpatrick was tragic for the dolphins in madden last season. Teddy Bridgewater is untested in this franchise so hes a mystery. But they got him a B8 Rookie HB in Shattered Elysium although hes missing the first 3 weeks. I think this teams a bit farther away from being good but they should get a little better
