Madden 21 - Patriots Franchise Real Roster Download

As MUT has died down, at least in terms of gameplay fixes and updates (which next-gen really never got), I have found myself playing Franchise a lot more than I usually do in Madden this year. I have gotten bored with playing MUT, even though I do enjoy building the Patriots theme team. With that said, I have updated the Franchise rosters to match a lot of the off season moves that not only the Patriots have made, but, also the other 31 teams in the NFL in Madden 21. Including Draft Picks for up to the 5th round for some teams, and the 4th round for all teams.

If you are interested in downloading this roster for your franchise, and you play on the PlayStation 5, you can search my PS5 user name: NEPlaybook in the File Sharing Section of Settings, where you download Rosters at. The file name is NEPlaybook22, you can search by that keyword as well. I thing it is easier to search by my name though, as I only have file uploaded.

If I make any changes to the roster, or if the Patriots make any moves before Madden ’22 drops, I will update it. I will update this post, as well as my video on YouTube with the file changes.

MUT Heroes Julian Edelman

MUT Heroes has returned to MUT in Madden '21, albeit a little later than normal, but here nonetheless. The Patriots theme team got two new players; Julian Edelman who is a 95 OVR, and Kyle Van Noy who is a 97 OVR. Both cards look fantastic on a Patriots theme team, espeically the Van Noy who might be the best LB on the Pats theme team; although he doesn't get Lurker, so Sam Mills might still hold that crown.

The one aspect I like about Edelman is he is currently the only wide receiver who gets the Playmaker ability, and he also has 98 speed, which is great for a slot WR who I will mostly use on curl, drags and flat routes to utilize the Playmaker ability when needed!

Here is the video review of both players:

The end of Madden

This is not the news the Madden community deserves. I know this was about FIFA; but EA does the exact same thing with Madden. EA basically paid lots of money to get this to go away, so they can continue to control the sliders during competitive online gameplay so you'll be encouraged to buy more packs to build a better team.

DDA is terrible and shouldn't be anywhere near any online competitive game mode. Leave it for offline games against the AI; that is fine. This is why MUT has come to an end for me personally. DDA on next-gen is even stronger; I feel like it is a testing bed for what they're going to do (and further ruin) with Madden '22 and beyond!

This is why Madden '19-'21 have been the worst Madden's ever. Rex left, and now we are stuck with a bunch of do-boys!
