What’s up PlayStation nation!
Madden 17 is right around the corner and I want to speak on a slight but noticeable Easter egg within the game. Lets think back everybody to September 9, 2014. The Seattle Seahawks played against the Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers purposely did not throw towards with the Sherman that day. Jordy Nelson had around 14 passes thrown his way but none of them were on the side where Richard Sherman was covering. What is even worse, I don’t even remember Jordy Nelson lining up on that side of the field at all. Now here we are on Madden 17 and I have the luxury of using the Seahawks against the Green Bay Packers. And to my surprise the Green Bay Packers avoided Richard Sherman again. Funny thing I noticed is, Jordy Nelson is the number one receiver on the depth chart, but is lined up on the left side of the field away from Richard Sherman.
Now I know some number one receiver’s can line up anywhere on the field on any given play, but Jordy Nelson never comes to the right side of the field. What I’m wondering, is that by play designed or is that an Easter egg that EA left for us? So that the Seahawks versus the Packers in the regular season can be accurate.
I don’t know about you guys but check it out and let me know what you think. Madden 17 is set to release on Tuesday August 23rd, 2016, see you all there.
