Madden simulations are all based off of team and player attributes from the previous season. Hence why a Heath Miller TD is unlikely. I'm pretty sure Miller's ratings will increase significantly come Madden 07.

All I know is they predicted a Raider victory in the Tampa/Oakland SB.

And in my game, the Steelers were down at half so I "helped" them out. In the end, Steelers won 108-10

But when I did actually let the whole thing run the Seahawks kept winning... 26-17 once, 17-3 in another.

LOL I figured I would take heat for that. I honestly don't believe what happens in a computer simulated football game will have any effect on the outcome of a game. I'd say that if EA was saying the Hawks were winners.

However, I do have some looky-loo part of me that is curious about how lucky the past simulations have been. I figure not so good, because they would have said something like "EA's simulations have accurately predicted the winner of the superbowl 5 out of 6 times or something like that."

actually, they are updated monthly, not weekly. And the last roster update was from the beginning of December.

I actually like to consider myself to be pretty good at Madden, and my friend is too. We try to play real NFL style football with no cheese. I just couldn't stop his running game last night. The Seahawks O-Line was killing me all game long, no matter what formation I was in. It was getting to be pretty frustrating.

I am going to let my Madden 2006 for PS2 with updated roster and information simulate a game and I will post the picture of the results in a little while.
