This week, EA Sports and everyone behind the Madden franchise will begin revealing their ratings for the top players in the NFL. Each morning will bring with it the top-10 ratings for a new position group before culminating in the complete release of their entire database at a later date.
This year’s Madden includes a number of highly-anticipated updates, including a revamped franchise mode.
So with the company ramping up the hype for their August release, expect some Madden content thrown in this week along with your usual training camp coverage.
For today’s discussion, I just want to know if any of you are planning to grab the latest edition of Madden when it drops. Are you taking the leap this year or will you reserve to unleash your emotions on actual game days? If you choose to do the latter, I do not blame you at all. Both Madden and the Chargers can put some real stress on you, so mitigating that is very understandable.
And now for today’s links.
