Kurt Warner Returning To Madden 10

Late last week I posted a poll regarding the removal of a few players in the final Madden 10 roster update who had retired following the end of their season but before the NFL season was officially over. Kurt Warner, Bertrand Berry, and Junior Seau were completely taken out of the game in the update. The poll and accompanying comments were heavily in favor of keeping players on the rosters given that they finished off the seasons with their respective teams. Lead producer from the Madden series Phil Frazier has sent over the following statement:

Over the last few days we’ve kept an eye on the poll in your story about our final roster update. Due to the overwhelming response, we are going to release another update that adds the retired players previously removed back into the game. Our fans have spoken and we’ll do our best to have this update done before the weekend. We also plan to push this update to Online Franchise shortly after it’s ready.

This is a good move by EA Sports not just in how they are responding directly to community feedback and taking action on it but also just in terms of consistency. There have been more transactions that have taken place and the final update even missed some players such as 49ers LB Jeff Ulbrich who had retired and accepted a position on the Seahawks coaching staff. Then there are players such as Brett Favre who may retire, but because of the timing Vikings fans would have had him in the game for the next six months regardless while Cardinals fans wouldn’t have had their starting QB. Madden 10 was meant to represent the 09-10 season and off-season transactions are meant to be held for the upcoming year.

    I remember them leaving Sean Taylor in Madden 08. It was pretty awkward. I guess they learned from that…

    As soon as I saw Pasta’s post about the final roster update I noticed Warner was taken out. The movement quickly picked up steam, and soon everyone provided feedback. So I just want to say thanks to everyone who cared. I decided not to play online and update the rosters after Warner was removed and instead just played Madden Ultimate Team. Now I can play online again, or at least update the rosters

  • kevin_da_vikings_all_pro

    see i think this is a great idea cause the fact kurt berry and seau played all season long they deserve to be in their last madden

  • kevin_da_vikings_all_pro

    o ya sean taylor is the reason i want madden 08 back my favorite free safety the best i ever played with but now i use reggie nelson and daniel manning every great once and a while madieu williams

    Jason Peters TE in college one of the best LTs now
    Brian Urlacher SS in college now a top MLB
    Trent Cole about a 230lb LB but now around 250 and a top DE
    Thomas Davis FS in college and now is one of the fastest and hardest hitting LBs
    Devin Hester in college and his rookies season a CB now a decent WR
    Jairus Byrd was around 180 and a CB now about 200 and the ball hawk FS
    Dexter McCluster is a RB in college and will most likely be a WR in the NFL
    Basically the training should be put back in the game to change players speed, strength, catching, ext.
    And a new aspact should be added weight loss and gaining it happens all the time in the NFL
    With players to help their position or speed or strength it should be made to where you cant
    Go overboard. But if someone wants to spend the offseason making Tom Brady faster lol let
    The my favorite part about 09 was building players up. I tried this year with Darnell Ellerbee
    But no matter how many years or tackles pics and sacks I got he never got faster or past a 69
    Rating I don’t want to just change it in edit roster I want to pick a player and work on him.
    The progression could be a lil better too I hate running for 2000 with my RB that’s a 70 and he only
    Goes to a 74 next season. Not to many complaints just things to make it more realistic and have
    Me play the same season till 2030 I haven’t went past 2013 on Madden 10 its just not the same
    As 09
    Thanks hope you guys take this and use it

    on the latest update for madden 10, they put kurt warner back in when he retired already.i think they should put him out of the game becuz he already retired

  • Kevin

    Will pasta update the Madden 10 rosters after all the big free agent moves? can he even do that?

  • np03

    I thought it was dumb@$$ move in the first place and EA looks like idiots for it. I've owned this game the last 10 yrs in a row and NEVER have they let offseason (postseason) moves reflect on a roster update. Makes no sense unless you're gonna keep the updates coming till next season starts, which of course they will never do because it forces us to buy the game every year. Inconsistent bunch of morons. Good job dude
