I know, I know…. this is a classic case of authentic frontier jibberish.  News is slow.  I do this every year and it just so happens that this is my first year with BoltBeat.


By the way, these are not Madden numbers.  If these were Madden numbers I would easily blow them all of out of the water.  I have been playing Madden since it came out in 1988.  I’m pretty good.  For those of you that want to challenge me online, that time will come as well.  Let me know what your gamertag is and I will get something set up.  My gamertag is…. you guessed it, BoogaP.  I haven’t played online since last year.  No worries, I got you!


Thanks a lot for reading.

    @boogaP how accurate are you usually with this if this is acurate were gonna kill people?

       Fairly.  Last year I nailed INTs for Weddle. Pegged Spikes for 100 + tkls.  Way off on Phillips sacks though.  Rivers, I had less INTs (who didn’t) but was off by only 2 TDs. Had Goody w/ 1 KR td.
      Was off on Gates yds. Thought that he would have had more. Etc. Not bad usually.

    Nice write up Booga, ROTFLMAO at Clary! I do see Mathews with 1800+ rushing yds and a long of 80+. One name missing is Castillo, I see hi taking back the starting job maybe 3 sacks 2 FF 6 TFL. 1 question…. do these stats include playoffs and Superbowl?

    • BoogaP

       lol. No, they dont. I gprolly should have put reg. season #s. 
      I really like Liuget and Martin.  If anyone is gonna push either of those two it will be Reyes, imo.  I would LOVE to see Castillo rebound w/ a strong year!

  • RMainwaring

    Way off on Clary. He’ll have at least 2 false starts per game. Rivers will beat Drew Brees’  single season passing record and Cam Thomas will have at least one SMASH!

    Best part…..Clary penalties ha. I hope you’re right man and i hope they all can get close to these numbers. I would love to see it happen but i cant imagine every player at every position to put up there career best numbers

  • BrandonReisinger

    By my count 38 takeaways, I’ll take it!! How many did we have last year?

  • EdgarHerrera

    Love the optimism BoogaP but honestly for all these guys to have those type of numbers is unrealistic. No way Philips gets 17.5 sacks 8-9 is more realistic, that was the most unrealistic one of all. Some if not most of these players could and might get these numbers. By my count we would have 11 probowlers this season. I also think you have underestimated Meachem, Liuget, Barnes, Spikes, and Bigby. Good predictions though maybe we could turn this into some kind of competition or something also.
