Ok, so, I'm insanely bored and felt like blogging. So, I decided to give you a look into my Madden NFL 08 Superstars. We'll go from draft day all the way to retirement. First up: Bryant Jones. (I'll only be covering some in this one, and not much, I don't want to give you the whole thing yet.)
So, Bryant Jones is this stud QB, kind of like Andre' Woodson. He attended the University of Michigan and in my pretend world, won a Heisman there. I create his attributes, his build, and reach my apartment.
I do his individual workouts (even though **** at the QB ones), and I earn three points awareness from the individual workouts. In the combine, I earn a point towards throw power.
Draft day. I'm asked if I wish to be drafted by my favorite team, the Jets. I say no, preferring to be surprised. The draft begins.
I wait a bit. I'm a bit shocked to see that Im not picked in the third round. I usually am picked somewhere in the third round.
Fourth round, nothing. The fifth round comes and I'm the second pick by the Rams. Im just relieved to have finally been picked. But this worries me that Jones isn't a very good player.
As soon as I'm back in my apartment, I change my hair. Bryant Jones is African-American. I change his hair to blond dreadlocks. Lookin' sharp, Bryant!
Then, I get some tattoos. One tattoo is a Hawaiian band, the other is the letter J. He's all set.
His requested number was 13. He receives 13. Now, I check out the depth chart. The moment of truth.
I'm not surprised to see that he's number 1 on the depth chart. It always does that, automatically put your player number 1 when he really shouldn't be. I put Marc Bulger in his place. What I'm looking for are his ratings. They are...drumroll please...
Here are the key ratings for a QB:
Throw Power: 86
Throw Accuracy: 84
OVERALL RATING: 79
I'm off to a pretty good start. Stay tuned for Volume 2.
