The lights are on
All eyes are on this year's crop of starting rookie QBs, including the Colts' Andrew Luck and Redskins' Robert Griffin III. We used Madden NFL 13 to sim forward and get a sneak peak at how these rookies are going to perform in the years to come.
Using the current online roster in an All-Pro Connected Career (with six-minute quarters), we simmed out five years to find out the fortunes of the rookie QBs currently starting for their teams.
Naturally, all this data has to be taken with a grain of salt (and more importantly with a sense of humor) since it's the product of a single sim and not the aggregation of a larger pool. Besides, all of these QBs started all 16 games each season as a starter in the sim – which would never happen in real life.
For more, check out our sim of the entire 2012 season, read my review, and take a look at my strategy guide for Connected Careers.
