Have you played as the Cardinals yet?

They're pretty hard if you simulate everything and play by normal rules (salary cap ON and trading deadline ON)... good luck.

U do know that there is a forum for games, right? And specifically, a Madden thread that is pretty active. Not telling you what to do. Just FYI.

Arizona is a toughie, but if you draft well, and develop them, along with bringing in the right coaching staff, and a little bit of luck. If I remember right, I went 4-12, 5-11, 7-9, 6-10, before going 11-5 and lasting through the 2nd round of the playoffs. The first year I just sim through it with the crappy coaching staff to get a good high draft pick. Then I made some moves, like trading away Emmitt Smith for some picks (I think it was a 4th and a 6th). Changed my OC and DC, resigned some of the current players that was worth a shit (mostly the WR core,) and basically drafted a QB.

My son got Madden 2005 for Christmas and I tried this franchise mode and was able to take KC to the SB in 2006. Does that qualify me to be a genious (chiefsplanet spelling)?

One question, did you win the SB?

One question, did you win the SB?
And did you play or simulate games?

Yes, I did win. I did not simulate the SB game, because it was special.

YES, at least I can take some vicarious satisfaction in the realm of quantum physics that it is possible for the Chiefs at some level to win the SB!!!
