Madden Moments: Too Late

The 2007 NFL season left fans with countless memories. Who can forget Brett Farve's Play-Action Bomb which gave the Packers an overtime win in Denver? Or perhaps the tight end post route which led to the Dolpins' lone win of the season.

Now, imagine playing those moments yourself. Not excited yet? But... But you could win a game as the worst team in the league! You could, throw a touchdown pass! What's that? You do that already, multiple times per game? And as a team of your choosing?!

If this doesn't sound like a useless enough feature, the rosters used are the 2008 season. So Farve isn't in his own moment, instead Aaron Rodgers is the quarterback. And the Dolpins have Ronnie Brown, who was out for the season by this point. These cutesy moments are hardly a selling point for Madden. Why not just include video highlights of these moments?

Why do we even call it Madden anymore, he's not even a commentator! The game could just as well be called Collinsworth 09. Since they are the lone NFL licensed game, at least they could call it NFL Football '09: The Officially Licensed [Inaccurate] Roster Update Edition.
