The 10 Commandments According to Madden
1. Play 11-man Football. "Hey, if there aren't 11 players, it isn't real football."
2. Use real players. "I want the All-Madden Team. The big boys. The flakes. The crazies...my guys."
3. Call plays from my offensive and defensive playbooks. "I'm the coach, we use my plays. 81 plays in each covers the basics."
4. Design your own plays. "If I pop in the right plays at the right time -- POW -- 6 points."
5. Give me realistic gameplay. "There's a ton of goofball things that can happen on any given play like missed blocks, jukes and pancakes."
6. Select Player Controlled Action or Computer Action. "Sometimes I want to take a handoff, hit the Umph button and jam it down your throat!"
7. Don't forget gameplay conditions. "Some guys aren't mudders. Some guys can't hold a block on grass. That's real football, that's in the game."
8. Call audibles. "If I don't like what I see when we line up I have to get out of it. One wrong play blows the whole game or costs the coach his job."
9. Put in all the other stuff that happens. "Injuries, penalties, time-outs, turnovers, interceptions, situation substitutions -- they're all part of the game."
10. Make your own league. "When I build my own teams I need every pro player, player rating and key stat. I l-o-v-e being the commissioner."
