Madden 2011 Season: They Might Be Giants?

This year or all you gamers I thouhght Id post a simulated Madden Season. I won’t play any of the games since he’s easy to inflate stats or do things the way I would want to do them. These games will be posted  based on Madden’s predictions of the games. I won’t control who gets injured on here so if Nicks goes out for the season in the real game things will go differently, but I thought it’d just be a fun little experiement to see how closely Madden’s simulations could come out to the real Giants.

Game 1 vs the Panthers.

This game according to the scoring summary started out poorly for the Giants, even though they scored a touchdown on their first drive when Manning connected with Steve Smith from37 yards out the Panthers would answer with  a field goalfollowed by a Jonathan Stewart 87 yard gallop.

Tynes started the scoring in the 2nd quarterwith a 54 yard bomb of a field goal (way to go Tynes) before Kasay answered with a 41 yard field goal. Not to be outdone, Tynes hit another field goal: this one from 31 yards out.

In the third quarter Kasay and Tynes exchanged Field Goal to end the third quarter tied at 16.

Then the Giants came to life. Scoring 17 unanswered points.

Tynes hit another field goal and then Jacobs furious about losing his starting running back job took it out on the Panthers.

Jacobs recived a 30 yard pass from Manning, and the following possession finished off the drive with a 3 yard run.

The game was over after Jacobs 2nd touchdown as the Giants were up 33-16 (the final score).

Box Score

Eli Manning started the  season with a bang. completing 22 of 32 passes while throwing for 300 yards two touchdowns and not INT 119.2 QB rating.

Jacobs nor Bradshaw ran the ball well. Each player averaged less than 3 yards per carry, though Jacobs did have a touchdown.

Steve Smith had 9 receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown. Jacobs caught 3 balls for 42 yards. Hakeem Nicks Managed only 2 receptions and 10 yards.

Defensively Jonathan Goff proved the naysayers wrong having 8 solo tackles (2 assists) and a sack and a pass defensed.

Barry Coefield chipped in a sack.

Mathias Kiwanuka told Osi Umeniyora to stay off the field registering 6 solo tackles and 2 sacks.

JPP! started off his N.F.L. Career with his first sacks.

In this game the Giants had 5 sacks.

Tynes was a perfect 4 for 4  including his 54 yard bomb and Matt Dodge averaged 44.7yards per punt on 4 punts bombing a 63 yards and placing two of his other three inside the twenty (If that’s who Dodge is Welcome Aboard!)

For the Panthers  Matt Moore was only able to complete 50 percent of his passes with no touchdowns and an INT.

The Giants kept Williams In check as he had 21 carries and only 51 yards. Stewart on the other hand had 103 yards rushing on 6 carries and a touchdown. Steve Smith 89 had 80 yards receving.

Everette Brown had 2 sacks.

I would definitely love to see all this happen this weekend with maybe Hakeem Nicks catching a few more balls, but everything else went beautifully.

What do you guys think: realistic?

    i think John goff has his breakout game as a pro, creating a tunrover and garnering just under double digit tackles 9tckl 1FF and the giants Run Stopping DUO of Cofield and Linval shut down the middle, and JPP who don’t get his first sack, holds the edge well, a couple times when Carolina try’s the outside running, and JPP gets his 1st Tackle For Loss.. As for Sacks, Justin Tuck gets 1, and Osi shows, hes back, with a 2sack game, and add 1 for the giants get there 4th on a corner blitz by Terrell Thomas.. Basically, the defense as a whole shuts Carolina down, with there 4sack 1ff 1fumble recovery performance, holding matt moore to 179yds passing 1td 1int, and neith deangelo or stew go for 100..

    As for offense, Bradshaw is my key, he beasts his way, with the rare blend of power and speed from a smaller back, and he torches the panthers Suspect from line, going for 20carries 110yds 1td, while jacobs chips in for 10carries 40yds…. As for passing, ELI shows Nicks will be his Num 1, as he targets nicks 7times, hitting him for 5recepts 87yds and 1td… Steve Smith chips in with 4recepts 39yds and Big Boss Man, grabs 3recepts 30yds 1td… Eli for the Day, goes for 16-23 modest passing yds, 190yds 2td 0int… Giants win this one 21-13!!

    If you actually simulate the season you’ll see that the Giants end up in the final 4 teams alot more then not, Madden likes the Giants even if our overall isn’t the best because of last year

    • Jason C. says:

      Madden LIKED the Giants, then they dropped half our players by HUGE amounts, while not raising Goff and Bradshaw’s overall AT ALL, and rating Kenny Phillips below pedestrian safeties. Madden likes the Chargers, Jets, Saints, and believe it or not, the Raiders (they’re almost unstoppable).

      • Jason C. says:

        Also Zack DeOssie (a probowler) is rated ZERO as a long snapper. Why even have a long snapper position available on the depth chart, if you’re going to take a probowl snapper and rate him ZERO!?!?

    Very cool…Its a pretty cool teaser before the game. Keep it up i will be checking in every week.

    You guys always have some great reads, good amylases and it always gets me thinking about where the Gmen are.

    If only If only

    Does anybody remember the NFL Sunday Ticket commercial with the Giants fan down in Dallas? Their spiel that year or so was “don’t travel around the country to see your team – get Sunday Ticket.” I can’t find it on youtube. Can anybody help?

    I know this is off topic but last nights game made me think about NY and how they use their TE. We are all happy that NY has TE that can catch and block but NY doesnt seem to value TE that can catch. Last night I watched two teams with Great TE’s who can be dangerous receivers, both of which use to be Giants. I think the TE possition is completely underutilized by NYG and Gilbride…Can anyone shed some light on how we get rid of Shaincoe and Shockey then decide we want to pick up someone who can catch better than boss?

    • Jason C. says:

      Well Shockey pretty much begged to be traded and we obliged, there was no way we could’ve gotten anything better than what we got for him either (a 2nd and 5th round pick, a good haul). Shiancoe is another story, the guy was blossoming and for some reason the Giants decided he was no longer needed, now look at him. It almost makes you sick.

      • Russo757 says:

        Yeah well shocky felt underappreciated by the way the coaching staff treated him after his injury prompting the trade request. Even still he wasn’t used nearly enough while part of the team IMO. I’m not a huge gilbride fan tho. I think he lacks vision and the ability to use people to their potential.

    Madden 11. They updated the rosters and Derek Hagen is on instead of duke Calhoun, and Bradshaw is only rated 81!?!?! That’s BullShido. + they haven’t improved online gameplay since madden 10. EA sucks! Let’s go NYG!! I’m from Montreal and I’m a G-men fan. Let’s get it done!

    • Jason C. says:

      Also if you win the Super Bowl as the Giants they say “after missing the playoffs the past two seasons”, last I checked it was ONE, but hey maybe EA uses “new math”. The Bradshaw rating is a joke, there’s rookies rated higher, I haven’t looked since the new roster update, is Goff still rated 64??
