    Unless you have been living under a rock, with no wi-fi or signal, and in Siberia…you know that the Q has a future…but that future is slightly different. To everyone's advantage it will still be helmed by the peanut gallery's favorite duo since Batman and Robin, since Romeo and Juliet, since when Harry met Sally…Doug and Jim have an undeniable energy and focus and passion. They are the heartbeat of the league…and I'm happy to hear it still beats strongly and loudly. This year the field was cut in half from 32 to 16 and we lost plenty of friends, regrettably so and wish them well and will still see them on the gridiron I'm sure. There will now be 16 teams that are controlled by owners (2 from each division), and the remaining teams will be computer controlled.

    Is it a coincidence that we are operating with 16 owners and the title of the latest Madden will be Madden 16? No of course not, the Madden gods have formed together to make this full eclipse, once in a lifetime convergent of numbers. See Davinci Code…but think more Madden

    In this thread…I will predict what TEAMS will be selected this year by human owners…and conversely will also be selecting what TEAMS will be turned away and controlled by the computer.
    Yes this is opinion…and it is mine…but shoot even my opinion could change greatly from the time of this posting to days or weeks from now. I'm not predicting what owners to what teams…there will be a time for that. This is simply predicting the 16 NFL teams that will be user controlled in this upcoming Q season.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Bills - This will be a highly sought after team this year. LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin…thats a pretty sick tandem…and the cherry on top TE Charles Clay the versatile weapon. YIKES… I think the Bills could go top 5 easy.

    Jets - This Defense is so so so stout. With Revis back their secondary isn't a glaring weakness. The CB tandem of Cromartie and Revis might be the best in the NFL. The defensive line also rivals any in the NFL. This team added rookie WR Devin Smith which should prove to be a productive substantial rookie on offense. The Jets also added Brandon Marshall who should add a dependable target for at least a couple of years.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Dolphins - The Dolphins are always a fan favorite, but I just don't believe they will be picked ahead of the Bills/Jets…Suh would be tempting…but not tempting enough, in the end. IF we were picking players wives…I could see the dolphins and ryan tannenhill getting picked first.

    Patriots - The Super Bowl winning team…on the sidelines and unpicked…that is my prediction at least.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Steelers - This team has some studs point blank. Hopefully Madden makes WR Antonio Brown one of if not the best WR in the game…b/c he deserves it. This team has some fun young pieces on both sides of the ball…never thought I'd say that about the geriatric Steelers.

    Ravens - No Nagta…It's Ngata problem. The Ravens still have Suggs and Dumervil and that is a beastly combo. Their secondary is solid as well. They have QB Flacco and he gets to toss the pigskin to rookie WR out of the University of Central Florida B. Perriman…who is sure to be one of the fastest WR's in the game.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Browns - We all know there is lots of love for the Browns in general and in this league. I think they will come very close to being plucked by someone, but in the end will be computer controlled.

    Bengals - Another very solid team. I love the RB/RB/WR combo of Hill/Gio/AJ Green. They have some players on defense as well.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Colts -
    I don't think you could want any QB for Madden and the future save maybe Aaron Rodgers. Andrew Luck will be a fun QB to have when targeting WR Andre Johnson and fast rookie WR Dorsett not too mention T.Y. Hilton. The defense could use a few parts, but this team is solid. Some defensive notables are FA pickup Trent Cole, Robert Mathis. The CB combo of Toler and more importantly Vonte Davis is a better combo then most NFL teams.

    Texans - The main gripe about this team is there is absolutely no QB. You almost don't need one though b/c this defense is plain scary. JJ Watt should be the best defender in the game. Hopefully highly touted DE J. Clowney, can actually make an impact on the field. Just remember if you take this team...you are drafting a QB next year.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Jaguars - Everyone loves to say how they love this team, and they might pick them. But they don't, and they won't. The Jaguars do have some fun parts...but those parts are not enough to void out the Colts or Texans. Bortles to Julius Thomas would be a fun connection...I hope the computer has fun with that.

    Titans - I do think this team has a better chance of getting plucked then the Jaguars...but I see the Titans falling short. They have some nice young pieces, and they have some defensive players that are appealing especially Jurrell Casey. Mariota will be a fun QB to watch in the upcoming Madden 16 season.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Broncos - Enjoy playing with Peyton Manning while you can...b/c he will be gone soon enough. The Bronco's defense and offense are fairly well balanced. You have a studly WR in D. Thomas that you can depend on for the length of the game. On defense, the highlight has to be Von Miller…he is one of the best young defenders in the game. The secondary I like b/c of these three chaps: TJ Ward, Chris Harris, and A. Talib. The main thing i DIS-like about the Broncos, is that they sold away their whole offensive line.

    Chiefs - I think this team is a solid choice b/c of HB J. Charles and DE Justin Houston. This lineup isn't bullet proof but it has some parts that would make life a little easier. On offense you are working with Alex Smith and his main targets: Charles, Maclin, and Kelce…and you can definitely work with that. They have FA Safety Tyvon Branch who could be a solid addition.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Chargers - I would love to get the chance to play with rookie RB Melvin Gordon. QB Phillip Rivers is a QB that can give you solid play for the duration of the franchise. This team doesn't have as much as other teams, but like all NFL teams they do have "some" parts. Safety Eric Weddle is a stud and is one of the best at his position.

    Raiders - I could see them getting picked over KC or SD. They are stating to have some nice young parts with young QB Carr and rookie WR Cooper. Remember they still have Khalil Mack from last year.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Giants - NY teams are usually fan favorites. Not many players last year got more hype then Odell Beckham Jr. , and pairing him with Victor Cruz...is a fun madden pairing. The Giants received great value and picked up Alabama rookie safety Landon Collins in the second round. Hopefully the young rook can step in and replace the departed Antrel Rolle. Jason Pierre Paul is still in town, and that is great news for whoever picks this team. Their corner-back combo of Rodgers-Cromartie and Prince Amukamara is a nice pair.

    Redskins - Many owners in this league are smitten with the Redskins. They are a no brainer pick for this league it sure seems. I think myself I might have to go with the Cowboys (America's team? hardly…I never had a vote in that). I just seem to think the Redskins will be plucked by some happy owner. On offense you are dealing with RG III , Alfred Morris, Desean Jackson, and Pierre Garcon…thats a pretty tight squad. Sprinkle in TE targets Jordan Reed and Niles Paul and I think the have a bonafide stud offense if you can get RGIII inline.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Dallas Cowboys - If this team still has Demarco Murray, that might have made the difference in these guys getting picked. The grouping of Romo/Witten/Bryant and now RB Mcfadden is a solid combo. One of the bright spots of this team is their beastly and very deep offensive line. I think the defense has some pretty big holes and needs some work.

    Philadelphia Eagles -
    Chip Kelly is a mastermind…at least you think so if you pick this team. I don't see the Eagles making the cut this year..


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Green Bay Packers - I think the Packers have the best QB in football in Aaron Rodgers. I thought WR Randall Cobb might test the free agent waters but he stayed in town, and his QB will be happy…b/c him and Jordy Nelson make for a fearsome duo. On defense you have the old wiley veterans in Julius Pepper and Clay Matthews. The Packers should be a top 5 or at least a top 10 pick easily.

    Minnesota Vikings - This could be up for some debate, but from my angle the Vikings are the second team taken out of the NFC North. The Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater could be a fun player to play with, especially when you have the leagues best running back in Adrian Peterson. The WR's are looking good to with FA pickup Mike Wallace. If WR C. Paterson could get it all together he would be a nice part to play with. TE Kyle Rudolph should be a nice dependable target for the young QB. The defense has some young studs like Anthony Barr, Sharrif Floyd, and Xavier Rhodes. The Vikings drafted UCLA LB Eric Kendricks and if he pans out that makes the LB core a nice young unit.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Chicago Bears - Jay Cutler has taken a beating as this teams QB, and I think this team ends up being computer owned. It's a shame b/c I'm sure rookie WR Kevin White is gonna be beastly even in his first year.

    Detroit Lions - Calvin Johnson is such a dynamic WR. I have loved Calvin since his days at Georgia Tech. He is the reason the Lions have a chance that they get picked this year. The loss of Suh and Fairley on defense has a huge impact on their Madden ownership. I see this team being a computer owned team.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Atlanta Falcons - Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are still both relatively young…and in the third round of the draft this year they selected highly touted running back Tevin Coleman. He now pairs with speedster running backs from FSU in Antone Smith and Devonta Freeman. The Falcons have some parts on defense but could still use some help as well. Safety William Moore is a pro bowler. The young corner-back Desmond Trufant is a star in the making. The Falcons drafted speedster DE/LB Vic Beasley and he should provide a nice jolt for the defense. I have bias… I refuse to believe someone doesn't want to wear the black and white, the black and red, the black and grey…the Falcons logo.

    Tampa Bay Bucs - This team has some young parts to play with. The most glaring change is that FSU QB Jameis Winston will now be the QB of the Bucs for the future. He has some scary good WR's to throw to with young Mike Evans and the tall Vincent Jackson. The defense could use some work, but Lovie Smith could probably whip them into shape…and so can you. DT McCoy is probably top five at his position. LB Lavonte David is a tough cookie and a young leader. They Bucs should be a solid team if chosen this year.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Carolina Panthers - In this write up the Panthers are sitting on the sidelined and computer owned. QB Cam Newton makes this team very desirable for many people. Their defense is getting older and taking some hits, they have lost DE Greg Hardy. The still have LB Luke Kuechly and he is a beast among beasts, I'd love to him over any other LB I believe. The DT's are the bright spot as they have Starr Lotuleilei and K. Short, who are both young studs.

    New Orleans Saints -
    This team has aged and is now stripped of many of its memorable parts of years pasts. I think the Saints are headed for computer selection this year.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Seattle Seahawks - This has to be the most stacked team in Madden. The list of studs goes on and on and on and on: Russell Wilson, M. Lynch, Jimmy Graham B.Wagner, R.Sherman, Earl Thomas, Bruce Irvin. This team will be one of the first 5 teams hands down.

    St. Louis Rams - This team has a defensive line that boasts some very strong names: Chris Long, Aaron Donald, Michael Brockers, Robert Quinn AND even Nick Fairley for good measure. On offense you have some fun parts with first round pick HB Todd Gurley and their new QB Nick Foles. Tavon Austin plays the speed game quite well at WR and TE Jared Cook provides another target for receptions.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Arizona Cardinals - This team is solid, and Mugga would love to tell me he is going to pick them…but…I think this team will be a computer team. Carson Palmer is aging just like Larry Fitzgerald…but they are a solid tandem. The defense has CB Patrick Peterson and Safety Honey Badger…those are some fun parts to play with. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Cards make the owners list…but I'm thinking no.

    San Francisco 49er's - How far the mighty hath fallen. The 49ers were once the no brainer pick like the Seahawks. They now are on the top of the list of teams not going to be picked this year (or are they?). The loss off Justin Smith, Patrick Willis, Ray McDonald and young promising LB Borland. They still have LB's Bowman and Smith. The offense has a some building blocks with young QB Kaepernick, and they also picked up WR Torrey Smith. When you factor in they have TE Vernon Davis…that is a pretty decent offensive squad.
