I have been down memory lane and looked into my two franchises using madcat, 7 seasons with my Bills franchise, http://www.clrdkmaddenchise.dk
and only season with Chicago Bears, http://allpromaddenchise.dk/index.php?year=2007&skin=Alp
and now my first season with Tampa Bay Buccaneers, http://www.allpromaddenchise.dk
It took some time for me to understand how great a tool Madcat was and how easy the program was to use, I began to use Madcat in the 3. season (2009) and in Super Bowl game in the 2011 season I began to also write weekly story on my website and in the last season (2013) I also began make youtube films.
But the very first season with is still very clear to me, with a very bad start and Bills lost their first 4 games and halfway through the season Bills had a record of 2-6, but Bills ended up with a chance to get a playoff spot if Bills won the final game against Eagles, But Bills got out played against a great Eagles offense.

The next season Bills went to the playoff, but was sent out very quickly when Bills rookie QB was intercepted 5 times by a great Ravens defense.
In the he 3. season (2009) Bills won the SUPER BOWL against Eagles (My slider was getting to easy for me, and I began make some changes to sliders the folowing season)
The 4. season (2010) I used alot of time to get my sliders back on track. I started Buffalo Bills 2010 season by changing sliders
CPU Offensive line Run Blocking to 30 (+5)
CPU Pass Blocking to 25 (+5)
Human Receiver Catching 45 (-5)
Human Running Ability 45 (-5)
I played one game with Human Running Abillty with 40, but it seem to unrealistic, when I play with CPU Defensive Awareness = 99 and I went back to 45.
I got some inspiration from ColtFan journal: Jacksonville Jaguars 2011-Onwardhttp://www.footballidiot.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3519#p14852I made a change in week 10 : CPU QB Accuracy to 63 (+3)
Another change in week 16: CPU Running Ability to 67 (+4)
The great moments in 2010 season was the 3 games against division rival Patriots, the 3. game was the AFC championship Bills lost to Patriots, a great rivalry.
The following season 2011 Bills reached the SUPER Bowl with a backup QBs, that was another great game, Bills lost the game against New Orleans Saintshttp://clrdkmaddenchise.dk/index.php?year=2011&skin=default
In the 2012 season, in week 5 I made another slider change, CPU QB Accuacy to 65 (+2)
Bills reached the playoff again, but lost the division title to Patriots. Bills won their wild card game and in the divison round meet Colts and amazing Peyton Manning was ready for them. Bills was outplayed and lost 31-20 and Colts won the SUPER BOWL that season.
The last season (2013) with my Bills franchise. Bills QB Nate Watters was outstanding until he got injuried in week 15, http://clrdkmaddenchise.dk/player.php?id=2022&skin=defaultI made a change to my sliders in week 11, Human Defensive Awareness down to (-1) and in week 12 I change CPU Running ability down to 63 (-4).
Bills offense set a record of 6241 total offensive yards in 2013 season and Bills won the division title. In the playoff I played the most exciting madden game I have ever played against Steelers in the AFC championship and won 30-27 in the last second, http://clrdkmaddenchise.dk/
Bills closed a great season and won also the SUPER BOWL against Saints 17-7, http://clrdkmaddenchise.dk/gamecenter.php?year=2013&skin=Alp&gamelog=Saints%20at%20Bills%20-%20w21.txt
I started up my new franchise project up with Chicago Bears, which had one of the best defense in Madden,There was some changing to my sliders during Bears 2007 season
In week 1, change Human tackling down to 33 (-2).
In week 14, change CPU Pass blocking to 27 (+2) and Human Interceptions down to 3 (-2)
In week 15, change CPU Pass blocking to 30 (+3), CPU Running ability went up again to 67 (+4) and Human Tackling down to 30 (-3)
Bears won a division title and reach the division round against Panthers, it was a epic game, which Bears lost 44 - 42 http://allpromaddenchise.dk/gamecenter.php?year=2007&skin=Alp&gamelog=Panthers%20at%20Bears%20-%20w19.txt
I then decided to change my team to worst team in NFL, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and build up dynasty. I included one more little rule, in the 2008 offseason all Buccs players, which are above 25 years old and with a OVR Rating above 80 will be cut from the team before the first FA stage
Their have been alot excting games in first season with Buccs, and it have very surprising that Buccs have a positive record of 10-6 and won the NFC south division title. but 5 of the 10 victories was SUPER close.I made one change to my sliders during Buccs 2008 season: week 12, Human interceptions back to 5 (+2)
Buccs won the wild card round against Dallas Cowboys and reach the divisional round, where their lost to St. Louis Rams.
It have been great fun so far and I expect to play a lot more season with this franshise and with the my lastest slider setup, which these sliders is seems to be spot on with my playing style.
That was just my 25 cent
