Madden 11 HOF

Post by undersc_re on Mon Sep 12, 2011 1:35 pm

With our time with Madden 11 come to its end soon. I feel like we all need to nominate some of the players from our respective teams (and others perhaps), to compile a list of Hall of Fame players. I bet many of them will be players we drafted that are near and dear to our hearts. But there is a special place for the Pat White(experiment)'s too.

I'm not sure where exactly to go from early nominations... But let's just see where this goes.

Let's let everyone induct 5 guys from their teams: 2 on offense, 2 on defense, and 1 First Ballot DTD player.

I think the 5 player idea would be good.

-4 from your team
-1 from another team

Ideas?

Re: Madden 11 HOF

Post by radioheadhead on Mon Sep 12, 2011 11:00 pm

I'll start:

TITANS OFFENSE
"Fuckin'" Vince Young
Yep, I've actually made Vince Young a serviceable QB. Somehow. Once LM gets back up and running for M11, I'll show the difference between this season and last, but he is bad enough to not be considered a 'major' threat, but good enough to scramble for 15 yards on a couple of 3rd and 10's, after throwing 2 incompletions.

So far this season, 190/344 for 3249 yards, 27 TD's, 12 INT's and only sacked 15 times. And 58 rushes for 382 yards, 5 rushing TD's. And a soon to be superbowl champ.

My other Offensive player is actually a CB.

Brian "Where'd He Go" Witherspoon
A complete baller when shown the ball, Witherspoon eludes most special teams better than Devin Hester, Ted Ginn Jr & Jamon Figurs combined. Again, without the benefit of LM, hard to get the stats, but Witherspoon has taken it to house far too many times to not be a M11 Hall of Famer.

So far this season: Kickoff Return TDs in Week 1, Week 13, Week 15, and a key Return TD against Todd's Broncos in the Playoffs, and Punt Return TDs in Week 13 and 17. 6 Special Team's TD's. That's awesome.

TITANS DEFENSE

Akwasi Owusu-Ansah
One of, if not THE best CB this season in the league. Underrated, over-performing, and never burnt, A.O-A is a straight up baller. 10 INT's this season, 2 FF's, 1 sack and 24 tackles. And he got plenty last year too. Goddammit LM, fix yourself so I can toot A.O-A's horn!

Tyson Alualu
Proved himself as one of the top DT's in the league each and every season, and ended up being one of, if not the only, untradeable player in the Titans defense, aside from AOA. Not as impressive this season as last, but with 14 tackles for loss, along with 5 sacks, Alualu's consistent busting through the Offensive line has forced passes for many years.

TITANS IRRATIONAL HOF ENTRY
Brandon "Beeeeeastman" Jones
A 81-overall rated rookie HB, standing at 6'7", 271lbs, Jones is a forced to be reckoned with, who only enters games to ice Chris Johnson's cake. Drafted #2 overall by the Cardinals, The Beastman failed to impress in crumby Arizona as starting HB, only managing 151 yards in 58 attempts (2.6 ypa) with 2 TD's and a longest rush of 12 yards in the first 6 games of the season.

In the first game after the trade to the Titans, Jones whipped out his DTD straight away, with a 3-TD 101 yard game on only 4 rushes for the Titans. Hall of Fame worthy. The newly blossomed "Beeastman" stats dramatically improved with the Titans, with 376 yards on 56 attempts (6.7 ypa) and adding 8 TD's.

He may not see the ball in the playoffs, but the Beeeeeastman will live forever in the eyes and heart of Titans fans.


4TH STRING FIRST BALLOT DTD
Austin Collie's Broken Fuckin' Back
The one and only player to be so fucked up he couldn't return, Austin Collie deserves a spot in the 4th String HOF, if for nothing else, for his unique ability to be broken in half. RIP Collie.

Katskins Offense:

WR Miles Austin

The terror that flaps in the night. Winner of Wide Receiver of the Year in Season 2. Currently enjoying a terrific postseason with more than 300 yards receiving and 3 TDs in two games. When he went down and missed a game in the Season 3 postseason, the Redskins fell apart and got eliminated by the Eagles.

Katskins Defense:

CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Yes, he's technically a Texan now. But during his two season with the Katskins, he was the heart and soul of the defense. In Season 2, he finished second only to Antonio Cromartie with 14 picks. His combination of speed, size and catching ability made him one of the most coveted cover corners in the league. If he were to go into the HOF, he would go in wearing a Katskins hat (no offense to the Cards or Texans).

MLB Paul "The Poz" Posluszny

The Katskins defense revolves around the middle linebacker. After the departure of London Fletcher in Season 2, the Poz joined midway and immediately became a sensation. He finished second in defensive player of the year balloting that year. The next year, he was even nastier, recording multiple interceptions and once against finishing the Top 5 of Defense Player of the Year balloting. In Season 4, he was slowed by injuries, but his presence was felt whenever he made it to the lineup. In a defense that consistently leads the league in takeaways and redzone defense, the Poz is the guy.

Another Team

FS Antoine Bethea -- Cowboys

That guy constantly made my offense miserable. Best moment: Jeff trying to trade him and failing, only to have him be better than Darelle Revis

Raiders Offense

Louis “Dropkick” Murphy
A dude so dedicated to his craft, that he illegally purchased Viagra so that he could be the hardest wide receiver on the field. Sure, he’s a mediocre receiver, but he also has the most solid member on the field of any player at any given time. You can’t play bump and run on this guy…unless you want the “bump” of a DTD up in your grill!!!!

Zach Miller
The heart and soul of the Raiders’ offense; this motherfucker is the definition of a receiving tight end. He’ll run a post route in triple coverage, make a leaping catch, break all of your DB’s collarbones, piss on your safeties, and defecate on your defensive coordinator’s playbook.

Raiders Defense

Jeremy “Who, What, When” Ware
No one knows ware this son of bitch came from, but after the Raiders dealt Nnamdi, Ware stepped it up with 3 picks in one game while leading most of the league in picks for the season with 7. He single-handedly (although he used both of his hands to catch the ball because of his measly 12 Spectacular Catch rating) beat the powerhouse Chiefs and he also made Brian Cushing shoot fruit punch out of his nose when he dressed up as a torn shoulder labrum for Al Davis’s annual team Halloween Party/Singles Mixer.

Gavin “So Right, I don’t Wanna Be” Swanson -
With over 5 picks and dozens of crucial tackles in his rookie season, The Swan Man is not only the back bone of Oakland’s defense, but he is also the drummer for the hardcore straightedge punk band that he started with Tyvon Branch and Robert Gallery’s beard. They call themselves, The Malt Liquor Shits. The Shits can be seen touring across the country, appearing at Flying J truck stops all over Amerka.

Other Team - Chargers

Michael “The Missing” Lincoln -
Every time that prick was in the slot, I knew he was getting the ball, but it never mattered. Cushing couldn’t cover him, Swanson couldn’t cover him and he made it so that every time the Chargers were down at the end of the game, they could drive the full length of the field on bombs, slants and posts to this speedy motherfucker. The Raiders wanted him as their first pick overall, but it was the Chargers who grabbed him up, and his name will be forever etched into fake Charger history.

Seahawks Offense -

Joe Flacco - Without this guy I would have been 4-12 every season. I can not wait to use him with better weapons in League #2

Chris Cooley- I never really had a great reciever and it shows with Cooley being my guy in '11

Seahawks Defense -

I pride myself on Defense as I never have been great throwing the ball in Madden. So these choices were hard.

My secondary - It took four years but at the end I had two of the best Safeties in the game(Thomas and Woodson). Two great corners(Trufaunt and Ross) . I probably had the highest paid secondary in the league.

Brandon Mebane - This guy was a beast in seasons 2-4 He actually gets my DTD award as he plugged the middle up so well it let me mix in dudes around him as needed.

Other Team - Whoever controlled the Ravens when I got Flacco. They were WAY over the cap and I talked them into trading Flacco and some other expensive backup for Matt Cassel(Who I traded Hasselback for) and Trent Green. I essentially got Flacco for Hasselback and a first round draft pick. I dropped Green and the rest is history. Flacco will proudly play under the new Terror Banner with old teammate Ray Rice in League #2

Somehow? You mean your usual 20yrd rollouts out of the 2wr set, looking to throw deep to anyone who's free thanks to the busted coverage, and then scrambling when they're not? I really hope you're going to try that again in '12.

Wow - way to hijack a thread.

Sidenote - league: look here at exactly NOT the way to deal with the way somebody plays. Dan had a problem with a few things the last time we played, but rather than talking to me about it he went straight to the SC. I even sent him an e-mail to discuss, and a few xbl messages, all unanswered. Anyway.... Back to the HOF'ers.

You raised the fact that somehow Vince Young has become brilliant while in your hands - I contend that it's down to the way you play the game over, and over, and over again. You exploit the busted coverage in the game, and that's why he's got the stats you posted.

As regards to Brandon Jones, let's be clear here. You had the game won, and you needlessly ran the ball in the attempt to boost his stats. It was unneccessary, and yes you did apologise for it (in my opinion, halfheartidly) after sending me a note saying that "he wanted revenge".

And I did not reply to you, because I wanted to take it up with the SC, because there were a number of incidents in that game where I believe you played against the spirit of the league. For example, trying to rush my PAT attempts causing offside flags.

I want it on record that I dont enjoy playing you (something I've never said about anyone else in this league), I dont intend on playing you again in this league, and I am also very disappointed that the SC did nothing to address this. There's talk of the new owners being vetted, well there's existing owners who need to think about the way they conduct themselves.

Bengals HOF:

"The" Pat White "Experiment":

Pat started out as a 64 OVR QB in year one when I picked him up on the FA draft. With a B potential, I knew I had found a possible diamond in the rough and he eventually rose to a 76 OVR. He sat on the bench for a year, learning under the wings of Carson Palmer. I barely missed the playoffs that year. I traded Carson Palmer to the Vikings the next year and rode the Dolphins offense all the way to the AFC Championship game where I lost to the Colts.

In his four years (only one year where he started the whole year), this is what he compiled:
275/519 (53% career) for 4,408 yards (16 YPC avg), 34 passing TD's, 28 INT's, and a lot of rushing stats (14 for 81, 2 TD's this past season - can't look prior to that).

Not gawdy numbers by any means, but he got the job done on multiple occasions and could be known as one of the best game managers in the league.

WR Broderick "Pickin'" Cotton

Cotton was a late round draft pick in season 3. With D potential and a 68 OVR rating, he was pretty maxed out. But I liked what he offered. 6'4", 207 lbs, and all the speed, agility and spectacular catch one could muster. I originally had Lincoln in my sights, but he was taken a couple picks ahead of Cotton. Cotton was the Mazda to Lincoln's Mercedes.

Over two years in the league, Cotton compiled:
80 receptions for 2,054 yards (26 YPC average) and 17 TD's (which is a TD every 4.7 catches).

CB Earlzo Kyaunn

Also taken in the same draft as Cotton, Kyaunn was drafted because of his speed. The AFC North had at least one WR that was fast and needed covered on each team and my CB's were slower than all of them. Kyaunn boasted 98 speed and 98 acceleration, able to keep up with Reggie Bush, Mike Wallace and Golden Tate. Despite having an A potential, Kyaunn went from a 75 to a 77 OVR in his 2nd season and was highly underestimated by team scouts.

In two seasons, Kyaunn's stat sheet looked like this:
90 tackles (WOAH!), 2 sacks, 1 FF, 9 INT's (6 in his rookie season)

He was a pretty great shutdown corner right out of college and continued his dominance the next year. I'll be sad when he's retired this year. Sad

LE Andrew Snow

A rookie just this past season, Snow moved from DE to DT(D). At 6'0", 276 and with 95 Strength, 87 accel, 82 power move and 84 block shedding, Snow was a force to be reckoned with. Just a 76 OVR with B potential, I'd love to know the direction he's headed.

In one season, Snow compiled 28 tackles (14 of which were for a loss - 50%) and 6 sacks as well as a pass deflection and FF.

My other team:

After facing Jamarcus Austin like 6 times, I can seriously say that I hate that motherfucker. And that's why he deserves to be in the HOF.

The 4thString Hall of Fame Committee recognized that whilst his stats are not the greatest on offer, Earlzo Kyaunn is a first ballot HOF'er basaed on name alone. Congratulations Earlzo, and may you bear many children with f'ed up names (in Madden 12)

Pittsburgh Steelers

I'd like to follow the formula that I proposed, but when it came down to it, I feel like I won most games in spite of my defense. My offense was the heart and soul of my Steelers. With that said and done... Here's my guys:

Jamarcus Austin - QB #7 - My first draft pick. Second overall in the first draft. Day one starter, iron man who never missed a game. A scambler that prefered to stay in the pocket. Jamarcus got better every year. Throwing for more yards, TDs, and fewer INTs of each of his three seasons.

Mike Wallace - WR #17 - A 6'0" speedster that played the game like a 6'8" machine. I didn't discover Wallace until the preseason before season 2, but after that, the rest was history. Number 17 was all over the field, coming near 100 receptions in 3 seasons even with injuries and constant #1s and double coverage all over him.

Deon Butler - WR #11 - In lieu of a first defensive player, I need to vote in the game changer that saved the Steelers season in season 3. Following roughly 4 trade offers to John (at one point telling him I am going to make an offer every week until he trades me Deon), Butler joined the Steelers following the start of a 4 week Mike Wallace absence and flourished the minute he stepped on the field. Butler was a secondary threat that ate up defenses that were too focused on Mike Wallace to keep him in mind.

Thomas DeCoud - FS #20 - While there were probably many players that could have been picked for the Steelers D. DeCoud always found himself in the right place at the right time. Sealing the deal on many games, and changing the momentum of a game with big interceptions and forced fumbles.

Other 4thSL HOF

Miles Austin - He's basically "Mike Wallace-light." I appreciate that.

Taking a nod to the Steelers, The Chargers were an offense machine and the defense had no standout player, so here are my four.


Philip "DT Penis" Rivers - Although traded this last season to experiment with re-tooling the Bolts, Rivers was a legend for the Chargers. All-pro for every season he played for the Chargers and always up there in the top QB stats every season. Although his playoff performances were filled with interceptions, during the regular season Penis Rivers was excellent.


Antonio "Fuck! Who can cover him?" Gates - Most likely the bane of most defenders existence, Gates managed to make so many clutch 3rd and long grabs and even some 4th down catches to keep the offense moving down the field. Gates, another pro-bowl regular was River's mainstay and even slowly became Nile Turner's favorite target.


Michael "MKZ" Lincoln - I know this guy pissed of a ton of teams out there. Even if he was half a step ahead on coverage, if the ball went to him he would speed on in to the endzone. His career began with controversy as a 78 rated c-potential player being grabbed in the late 1st round. Many owners scoffed at the pick, others pissed they didn't grab Lincoln sooner thinking he would fly under the radar.


Nile "The Tide" Turner - Although his one and only season wasn't that great, he should great promise. Turner had giant phallic-shaped pink clown shoes to fill as Rivers was booted out of San Diego for a change in the team make-up. Turner came out shining on his debut, beating the Steelers, but struggled after. Turner slowly settled in and his mobility helped keep drives going. Given another season or two, Turner could have become the DTD Rivers was, but we will never know now as we move to Madden 12.


4TH STRING FIRST BALLOT DTD
Ray Rice - More for the controversy he caused than his actual game performance. Since the first "up for grabs" trade scandal trade, Rice became a journeyman back in the 4thSL. Ray Rice I salute you for causing everyone's email boxes to assphaplode with flame wars.

I remember how excited you were when I said that I would be drafting a defensive player that day you got him Smile

Still - Storm Williams - no regrets whatsoever.
