Like most gamers out there, I got my copy of Madden 09 early yesterday morning and went about the business of breaking down the virtual roster. After downloading the EA Sports rosters for X-BOX 360, I immediately came to this conclusion.
Joe Flacco needs to start.
The server has Troy Smith as the starter, and while he’s not bad, he’s no Joe Flacco. Flacco’s accuracy and awareness are terrific on the game, and he can move pretty good out of the pocket as well. And he has a higher overall rating than Smith and Kyle Boller.
Smith is rated 73, while Flacco just barely outpaces Kyle Boller, 79 to 78. I haven’t tried to make moves with Boller on the game, but Flacco has already proven himself worthy. With an overall 4-5 record against random online opponents, I’m 3-1 with Flacco and 1-4 with Smith.
Is it a sign of things to come? We shall see.
