    The individual writing the segment runs the 40, throws the football etc .. to gain his stats in madden. Dude's the farthest thing from an athlete so naturally his stats blow.

    Using the 40 outside of anything except for acceleration is silly IMO. You can see game speed and players pulling from those who shine in the 40 yard dash. Shit look at Melvin Gordon & LeVeon Bell's tape. Players bench 10-12 reps of 225 are still plenty effective in the NFL at positions where you think "STR" would be overwhelming.

    in surprising solitude."


    "Moore looked relieved during the scrimmage. My abysmal performance was proof that Madden really is a simulation of the NFL: A player who somehow lucks into the league without any skills really doesn’t have a chance."

    Looks like it's part of the OVR calculation... dont know what it actually "does" though.
