Am I to take that as you are still playing the 2003 games? The 2004 draft works the same, and they shouldn't touch it except to make some minor improvements, like scouting. Who only scouts 15 players?

I've got both 2004 games and I've played about 1 1/2 seasons of Madden and 2 1/2 seasons of NCAA. I was able to shore up my RB situation by drafting Anthony Davis from Wisconsin with my late 1st-round pick, and I just played (and beat) the Oakland Raiders, beating their new rookie QB, Eli Manning, 23-3.

Yeah, I like to play a year behind, for $$$ reasons. I'm going to get my friends 2004 for like 15 bucks, and I know I can find NCAA 2004 for under 20 when the 2005's come out. That's how I got my 2003's, by waiting until the 2004's are out. Everyone throws their copies on eBay.

NASCAR fans can drool too.

From: http://sports.espn.go.com/ espngamer/story?id=1797314

NASCAR&174; 2005: Chase for the Cup -- Fight to the top in a groundbreaking new story mode to achieve NASCAR stardom. Start from humble beginnings by earning Modified, Truck, and NASCAR rides before grabbing million-dollar purses in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series. Develop your racing skills and intimidate your rivals on the track with all-new controls. Off the track, force the action with post-race confrontations, and settle disputes with NASCAR stars by racing America's top production cars through city streets. Fans react to the drama, idolizing both NASCAR heroes and villains with every move. Owners and sponsors recognize talent and reward success. It's up to you to show 'em what you've got. NASCAR 2005: Chase for the Cup is scheduled to ship this fall on the PlayStation 2 console, Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube.

Time outs aren't used for looking through your playbook. Time outs are used for stopping the clock. You call at time out and the play clock goes to 25, but the game clock is halted. If you want to peruse your playbook, pause the game, go to the Coaching Strategies menu, and pick the Select Audibles option. You don't have to change your audibles, but you can look through all the plays available. And you can do this more than three times each half.

Geez, I guess all that pausing really slows down online games.

Yeah, I think calling a timeout should get you 30 seconds before the full playclock starts ticking again. I'm always annoyed that if I call a timeout I end up having less time to pick a play than normal.

Pat Tillman, rest in peace.

I don't think you understand how hard it is to drive a brand into the ground, and erode the popular support that has flourished for over thirty years. I get up early. And I don't go to bed until I've made some very poor decisions.

I'm already dying for the next NCAA game. I didn't even bother buying Madden last year because I was so into NCAA.

That must be sad, Vikings fans. After all, those soccer moms are twice as tough as most of your players since you went into a dome....

GO PACK.

I wonder if the Create-A-Fan thing actually adds to the game, or if it's just a glorified way to waste time.
