Madden 2005 -- funny stuff...

I decided to start a franchise in Madden with the Chiefs and instead of playing the games for the first (2004) season, I would sim them to mimic what has happened in real life.

Right now, I'm starting week 4 at 0-3 and here's a couple of gems.

Chris Bober and Jason Dunn are demanding playing time or a trade.

But these are the funniest:

I checked my Advisors screen and amongst other things, they're saying "The sports radio shows are ripping the team new one" and "We've got cap room. Now's not the time to be frugal."

A freaking video game is smart enough to figure it out, but the braintrust at 1 Arrowhead Drive isn't?

Yep.

When I'm done cutting and paying contract penalties (for cutting players under contract) I'll have close to FIFTY percent of my cap free.

Off. Coord. -- Tom Rathman
Def. Coord. -- Mike Singletary
ST. Coord. -- Steve Hoffman (former Dallas kicking coach)
Cool. Update us on FA and the draft.

I'm assuming you'll be cutting Hicks, Holliday, Woods and McCleon?

Ahh, I just do it to mess around. I have a couple straight up franchises that I roll with, but it is fun to have an exported team to mess around with that has all the players you wish the Chiefs had.

that's what I hear--after reading a few previews of '05, there's only one or two new features that have me amped--the matchup stick, and crowd 'noise' feature---do they not live up to they hype??

I love the matchup stick and crowd noise factor. Not sure how much they affect the game, though. Also, they should improve the matchup stick in the future. As of now, it only shows the composure of the backs and linebackers. One other thing that is cool but a little irritating is that you have disciplinary issues at times. You have to take care of them. I thought I was taking care of them throughout my first season but apparently, only suspending them for a quarter or a half was not good enough. I'm now on probation for 2 years, losing 10 scholarships per year. Not good for someone trying to build a program.

This is too much fun.

Imagine how Larry Johnson felt when he heard that the Bears had offered KC the 3rd overall pick in the draft, plus the 99th overall pick and DE Michael Haynes to the Chiefs for RB Priest Holmes and the new Chiefs management ACCEPTED.

Now imagine how he felt when the new Chiefs management, with the #3 overall pick in the draft, selected a 6'1", 221lb. HALFBACK out of Pittsburgh...

The offseason was bloody. I couldn't resist the temptation to GUT this team, especially on defense.

Chris Horn asked for too much money and was not re-signed. John Browning, Benny Sapp, and Freddie Jones were also not offered contracts.

Backup linemen Brett Williams and Kevin Sampson got the axe. Johnnie Morton was cut. Several defensive starters were released, including Vonnie Holliday, Dexter McCleon, Mike Mazlowski, Jerome Woods, Shawn Barber, and Eric Hicks.

In addition to the aforementioned trade of Priest Holmes to the Bears, injured QB Trent Green (shoulder) was traded to the Cowboys for the 14th-overall pick.

I extended a 1-year tender to RFA Scott Fujita and placed the franchise tag on Greg Wesley.

The Chiefs had an outstanding draft, largely due to the fact they had 3 1st-round picks. It went like this:

1st -- #3 -- HB Pittsburgh
1st -- #11 -- RG Georgia
1st -- #14 -- LT Howard
2nd -- #43 -- FS Kansas State
3rd -- #75 -- CB Pittsburgh
4th -- #99 -- WR Bucknell
4th -- #107 -- LE Bethune Cookman
5th -- #139 -- ROLB UCLA
6th -- #171 -- LT Montana
7th -- #203 -- WR Hofstra

Next up:

Free agency. I have to find a replacement of Trent Green somewhere.

That's the fun part about these games, IMO. Offseason stuff is where we the fan get to live our dreams as GM. Personally, I would not have done nearly as much as you but hey, to each his own.

Hehe...in Madden it really doesn't matter as much what school they came from, it's all about the ratings.

I actually ended up not signing my 7th-rounder because he was so bad and I needed free agents.

Speaking of free agents, here is who I signed:

QB Mike McMahon -- will be the starter
OLB Kalen Thornton -- backup
RB Charles Stackhouse -- good run blocker, being groomed to take over for TRich
WR Aaron Moorehead -- will start at slot WR
CB Vontez Duff -- young depth
DT Eddie Freeman -- hey, what can I say? He was the best of what was left...

A couple of interesting FA notes:

Both Barber and McCleon went to the Panthers.
Hicks went to the Chargers and Holliday to the Patriots. Interestingly enough, both teams run predominantly 3-4 defenses, which many of us felt both were better suited for...

Good thing it's a game...I'd be PISSED if that was the REAL season.

Quetion about Madden. Do they allow you to keep 80 on the roster until the cutdown days in preseason like real life? Or do they make you have the required 55(or whatever it is) all the time? That is one of the areas that has always been lacking in Madden, IMO.

Funny is im in my 3rd year of my Franchise, people i have let go are, Collins, Huard, Morton, Kennison, Boerigter, Horn, Dunn, Bober, Willis, Hicks, Holliday, Wilkerson, Dalton, Jones, Maz, Barber, Bartee, McCleon, Woods, Pile, Tynes and Cheek.

T-Rich retired on me so my Fullback is Omar Easy (didnt give up on him and is pretty good, Trent and Priest are on the decline so signed them to 1-year deals and my QB and RB next season will Casey Clausen and Larry Johnson unless i draft someone else or pick them up in free agency.

Jordan Black is being groomed as a replacement for Roaf, Lilja is gonna replace Wiegmann.

The Buccanneers cut Michael Clayton so he is a chief now so is David Terrell. Will Allen is a chief and moved Warfield to safety. Billy Cundiff is now my kicker and Derrick Frost is my punter.

Drafted a guy named Andy Lee and is my starting LE and he is fast too speed of 87.

And I may trade for Bartee and move him to Safety, so but all and all its been pretty good the most money i ever had in a offseason was 43 million dollars under the cap.

Named Gunther head coach, Al still OC, Mike Singletary named DC, and Gansz still special teams coach.

But the one thing that sucks about the game is the radio show and i think it sucks big time.

Maximum 55 throughout the year. No cutdown date.

My first few times of simming the 04 season, The Chiefs won the division at 8-8, once lost in the divisional playoffs, the other lost in the AFC championship game.
