The Tale of the Week – Originals Season 1 Week 1

FINALLY, after months of waiting for the game to be released, and then for EA to actually do some substantial QA, OOH Madden Originals is kicking, the fuck off!



Each week we will provide a preview of the week’s slate, focus on a few of the developing storylines and division races and try to identify who will come out on top.


CAR vs DEN                         CAR

MIN vs TEN                         TEN

CLE vs PHI                            PHI

CHI vs HOU                         HOU

BUF vs BAL                          BAL

SD vs KC                               KC

Basket case of the league, but controlled by the Grandmaster vs. a roster built to win now and an owner with no track record of success. Heart says KC, Head merely laughs at such idealistic dreaming.

OAK vs NO                          OAK

#BeliveinGlyn starts here. After a torrid 16 thanks to plumping for a young, development project in the draft, Glyn has this time gone for a young, developme…. Oh, erm…. Well it cant be much worse than last year CAN IT NOW! Much better starting roster, wand the chance to do over his real life team will inspire him on. DJ requires a masters in accountancy to manage that expensive Saints roster but his time will come in a few years.

TB vs ATL                             ATL

CIN vs NYJ                           CIN

GB vs JAX                            GB

MIA vs SEA                         MIA

NYG vs DAL                         DAL

DET vs IND                          DET

Battle of the league heavyweights comes slap bang in the middle of the Week 1 slate. Two rosters in need of some work in the whole, but plenty of sparks of talent at WR and with two cannons starting under centre, this should be some Air-show. Detroit to just edge the victory due to its better defence.

NE vs AZ                               AZ

PIT vs WAS                          PIT

STL vs SF                              STL

All that now leaves me to do is wish you all the best of luck for the forthcoming, play fair, Aaron please read the rules more often, and, most importantly, don’t be a dick!
