Being Pumped For Madden Is Sooo 10 Years Ago

Before I get into the saddening fact that Madden might not be for me anymore, let me bring out some gems from our timeless, potential zombie friend, John Madden. Our friends at Manofest lined up some his best and brightest quotes over the years:

1) "The best way to gain more yards is to advance the ball down the field from the line of scrimmage"

2) "When you have great players, playing great, well that's great football!"

3) "Whenever you talk about a Mike Shanahan offense, you're always going to be talking about his offense."

4) They're either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

Gems. Absolutely obvious gems. That's what John Madden was always good for. He was going to let you know something that was so blatantly known that you forgot it was a possibility--like that quote about the team that was either going to run or pass it. Classic John.

Well needless to say, I will not be getting this game. Madden has scorned me pretty good the last few years with random fucked up features and they simply don't simulate Mark Sanchez's perfect release like it should. Plus they definitely took off roughtly 180 El-Bees from Rex Ryans enriched frame. I'll dabble again in 2012, but this year's version is certainly a wash.
