EA Sports was Wrong with Madden NFL 25 Super Bowl XLVIII Prediction

 

 

Cordova, TN; February 3, in the year of our Lord 2014--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is pointing out EA Sports was Wrong with Madden NFL 25 Super Bowl XLVIII Prediction. You might have noticed the story on January 27, in the year of our Lord 2014 - “BRONCOS CAPTURE LOMBARDI TROPHY IN MADDEN NFL 25 SUPER BOWL PREDICTION.” This is what EA Sports claimed would happen in Super Bowl XLVIII. Boy were they wrong. The Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43 – 8. It could have easily been 50 – 8 if Seattle had kept the pedal to the metal at the end of the game. But Seattle did the classy move, and put in the second stringers. They just ran the ball, and worked on running the clock out.

I am normally not a: “I told you so,” kind of guy. How exactly did EA Sports make this messed up prediction? I mean after all, the Seahawks totally dominating the Denver Broncos ties for the third largest point differential in the history of the Super Bowl. Meaning this Seattle Seahawks team won so impressively that it was the third worse shellacking in history of the sport. EA Sports not only missed the dominate number one defense stiffling the number one offense in a victory; but in a victory where the game was never in question. Denver got taken behind the tool shed, and never recovered. EA Sports missed this, and that calls into question their predictions.

Sure EA Sports has a high percentage of getting predictions right. Sure it is only a 50/50 shot at being right. Meaning they could get lucky quite a bit. But in the past EA Sports was much more accurate. They have been not doing so well in the past four to five years with their predictions. Why is that? Why does EA Sports have egg on their face? What kinds of tweaks do they need to make to the Madden NFL franchise to accurately predict Super Bowls? If Seattle remains a dominate force in football will EA Sports accurately reflect that in their Madden NFL football games?

When I saw the EA Sports story on January 27, in the year of our Lord 2014 I knew it was wrong. Not just because I am a Seattle Seahawks fan, but also because it felt wrong. Their scenario did not match the history of the number one defenses playing the number one offenses. Their scenario did not match how Seattle has played all year long. Their scenario did not recognize the “it” factor in Russell Wilson. Their scenario did not acknowledge how hungry the Seattle Seahawks are and were. Their scenario ignored the 12th Man entirely. Hopefully EA Sports will recover from this embarrassment.
