In Superstar mode in Madden 06 I was drafted by Washington Redskins. It was painful beating the cowboys in week two. I don't want to demand a trade because the skins D is tremendous. I haven't had an opponent score on me yet this season. What should I do?

You should start over, and get drafted by a new team.

Then hope that we never bring this up again.

It could haunt you forever! Cool

First, become friends with Clinton Portis. He likes defending his teammates no matter what the issues are.

Second, fire your agent for forcing you to sign a subpar contract that obviously doesn't reflect your value to the franchise, nor "true market value". Hire Drew Rosenhaus (the Poston Brothers will suffice as well) and threaten to hold out for the rest of the season unless you get a better deal with more guaranteed money, or press for a trade. We call this manuever the "Terrell Sean Taylor-Owens". And no matter the bad press, Portis will stick up for you saying that you "have your reasons" for this, and that you're a "class act".

During your pending holdout, cause as many problems as you possibly can, making a public spectacle of your talent, insulting salary, and faulty ownership of the organization. The more feathers you ruffle, the quicker Snyder will respond (the greasy wheel gets the most oil).

Once you're traded (you're too young for Daniel Snyder to overpay to keep...he only does that with over-the-hill veterans), sign a modest, cap friendly contract with your new team to add insult to injury. Make sure to mention in the pending press interview that the Washington Redskins organization is worthless and you were merely doing whatever it took to leave. Make sure to praise God, Allah, Jesus, Buddha, a fig tree (for the pagans and druids) and your agent for the miraculous opportunity to prove yourself on a team the appreciates having you on it....unlike the Redskins.


That's my take on what you should do....but I don't think video games allow that to happen yet.

Plan9misfit, that was great, I really did LOL on that one.

Daboys2005, I would demand a trade. As many times as it took to get the hell out of Washington. What position are you playing?

I'm Playing QB. I was thinking about demanding a trade but I don't want to get traded to the Giants or Eagles then I would really hate life. Plan9, I love you idea. I try it when I get home tonight after work. On another topic concerning Madden, Tedy Bruschi is my middle linebacker on the Skins. How does this happen? Also Peter Boulware is the outside Linebacker for the Boys? That is crazy. Has anybody who has the game been drafted by the boys?

I started my Superstar as a QB and got drafted in the 3rd round by the Dolphins. After I got to see my stats and I had an overall of 87. WTF? Alex Smith was the first pick and wasn`t so high.

LOL...BoysfanfromOttawa, I know I am disgrace to all Cowboy fans. Actually I did start over but I got drafted by the Broncos and I didn't like that either so I figure I would play with the skins until my contract(which now I will demand a trade) ended and try to get with the boys.

I had the same thing happen, and I just simmed as many games as it took before I could request a trade, and I got traded to the Patriots. Of course I didn't feel like playing as my guy as Brady's passing cone was about 3 times the size of mine.

i ended up bein' a 5th rounder to the Chargers, came in as an 87 over-all with 93 speed at LOLB. though i may retry as many times as it takes to land on the 'Boys, i'm assuming i'd have to be a fourth round pick for that to happen

I played the foreskins in Franchise mode and they had Bruschi too. It really didn't matter though, I lit it up on those scrubs.
