Saints on Madden '06

Just got Madden '06 today and I have a major beef with EA Sports. Here in no particular order are my gripes:
1)Aaron Brook's passing cone looks like a baby slice of pizza, while other QB's look like a half a pie.
2)They have Duece ranked as a "92". Complete BS and again shows the media's complete lack of respect for Duece's ability.
3)Our top rated player is Berger with a "93"
4)They have Spencer Folau ranked in the low 80's and starting at left guard for us and Montrea Holland ranked in the mid 70's and riding the bench. Oh, really. Does anyone do any research over there.
6)They have Derrick Rodgers as our starting ROLB although he has been cut now for weeks.
7)No Alfred Fincher or McKinnon, but when I picked McKinnon up he ranked in the mid 80's and becomes the starter over Watson who is ranked in the mid 70's
8)They have Jammal Brown ranked as an 80 which seems a bit low, but I could be nit picking at that.

Just some of my gripes. I like the game on the whole, but for $53 bucks with tax I figured I could get my complaints in.

Yeah I was upset that Bockwolt and Watson were ranked so low. I was also suprised that they didn't have Fincher. What about Mayberry starting at RT instead of G? I thought it was going to be a little more accurate.

They have a roster update. I did mine today. Adds Fincher. HE is a 59 overall. You still have to pick up McKinnon though. They add Ty Law to the Jets, and move Mayberry to guard with Brown starting. Pretty cool once you do the first update.

Got bit by karma today. Started A-Mac week 3 verses the Vikes, and he was holding his own, until he got put out for 8 weeks with a broken ankle. Glad I didn't trade Brooks right off like I started to. I did trade Sullivan and a 4th for a 3rd rounder, Joe Horn for Braylon Edwards and a pick as well. Having fun, except my PS2 decided now it wants the lens to go out, so I have to buy a new one tomorrow.

I don't like superstar mode, but only cause it's random what team you go to, and I only play with the Saints.

Yeah I was drafted by the cards backing up Warner. The fun part is going to be able to hit FA and get to the Saints in a year or so... also I just read up on Francise mode. You're able to save the file and send it online... others can downloaded and play other teams and you can end up playing against one another. This Sounds great to me. Sucks if everyone wants Saints but seems fun. As soon as I get my PS2 online I'll set something up and we all can just pull a team out of a hat I guess.

Geez....to all of you guys that are mad with the Saints roster....chill out. If the team does well then the ratings will change. I actually think this is the most accurate roster rating of us in the past few years. I'm surprised that Stallworth is still in the eighties, and they slighted him on his speed, but other than that it is a fair team rating. They are still good enough to win online. I'm rated 20th onlinie right now because i can win consistently with them, because they are a relatively low rated team.

yeah i only put AMac in when im blowing someone out. His deep ball is inaccurate as hell, but has a strong arm and is agile, of course.

Am i the only one here with XBox?????
