Source: EA Sports

Nothing signifies the beginning of football season like the release of the new Madden game and gamers out there have had to wait almost a month longer than the usual early August release date. But Madden is finally here and we can all start obsessing over the multitude of playbook inaccuracies and player rating injustices. Let’s take a look at how the Jaguars players look this year…For a full look at the Jaguars (un-updated) roster and player ratings, click here.

    I won against Tenn in the opener and from there Garrard went on a massive cold streak and we went 1-4, I benched him in favor of Gabbert, and now I’m 4-4, beating the steelers, ravens, and texans.

    and its also really hard to run.

    @Rhett_Chrystal Garrard is tricky. You have to play carefully. He stunk in the preseason for me and Gabbert shined, along with McGowan haha

    So, I decided to try and build Garrard up for trade value, then realized it was week 7. I was pissed but now i’m 8-2 still with Garrard and he is second in Pro Bowl voting. You have to lead wr’s and stick with the run.

    Loved the style, Hof

    @bctitansized its hard to run, it gets stuffed a lot, and Garrard misses everything deep, Gabbert is good deep, Marcedes will be open running a fly, He’s 5-10 yards from the LOS, and i throw it with Garrard he overthows it 10-15 yards, and safety picks it, Gabbert hits im in stride.
