Madden retires, Pat White takes over.

Remember this?

Now see this:

This is an actual Wild-cat play designed into the new Madden '10 game. Sure, the actual human player does not run the play properly, running White out on a sweep before throwing the pass, but it's still the Wildcat (notice the unbalanced line). Also notice they gave the number 20 to Pat White.

Below are some more looks at the Wildcat in the new game. EA sports says the package will not be exclusive to the Dolphins.

And if you're wondering who gets to design these games and do the real-motion stuff, it's former Florida Gator QB
Larry Richart who backed up Jesse Palmer (someone please give him a promotion to the NFL) about 10 years ago. Since then, Richart has been THE guy behind the NCAA and Madden franchise quarterback gameplay and playbooks for EA Sports.

The new game will include gang tackling, fighting for fumbles at the bottom of the pile, and perhaps a 2nd round draft pick wearing a running back's number instead of a QBs. What do you guys think? By the way, these videos were created either just before or a day after the draft. It could be pure coincidence that EA had Pat White in a Dolphin uniform....
