As much as we like to talk about what we wish EA would put into Franchise Mode for Madden 13. As much as we might even complain about the silly nature of some of the things that happen in Madden 12… This game is almost addicting to the point that Madden 2005 was and that is a good thing if they continue to build from this solid base.
That said, this is how Season 2 panned out.
Amos High was drafted by the Bears in the first round out of Georgia Tech. He was highly rated but still managed to fall to the Bears after they traded down. That would prove to be their best decision yet… Amos High went on a tear in the second half of the 2012 season and finished with 1900+ yards and 15 TDs rushing. He would then bring home Offensive Rookie of the Year and League MVP (with RB of the Year as well).
To go along with this amazing season – Jay Cutler won QB of the Year, Mike Williams won WR of the year and Henry Melton won DLineman of the Year!
The Bears have tremendous talent on their team and are built to win and contend for the Super Bowl. The question isn’t if they can get there, because this is the second straight year they were within one game of the Super Bowl. Both years we have seen Lovie Smith’s team get outclassed late in the game and that isn’t a good sign for the Chicago’s Head Coach. It is widely speculated that 2013 might be his last if they don’t break this trend.
We will be posting recaps of the Draft and some of the off-season moves as well.
Some of the needs going into 2013 are -
- #1 TE
- #2 CB
- #1 LG
- Future MLB (Urlacher is on the decline, but will retire a Chicago Bear…. No Question About That)
- Future RE (Julius Peppers is starting to age, albeit while still getting double-digit sacks at 33 years old, but the Bears need to be honest with themselves)
- #1 RG
