Breaking Madden

How you can be in the next Breaking Madden


The season finale of Breaking Madden is coming, and for the first time ever, we're going to use it as an instrument for good instead of evil. Donate to a charity of your choice, and you'll have a...

The BEEFTANK Trilogy concludes


Clarence BEEFTANK is the hero of Breaking Madden, and the lovable little man who started it all. After a three-month absence, he returns for the NFC Championship Game to humiliate the Seahawks, and...

An offense of all Tom Bradys


This Saturday, the Patriots will need Tom Brady as never before, so we fired up Madden, made copies of Tom Brady and put them all on the New England offense. It was terrible, and then it was...

Tony Gonzalez, cranky old man of destruction


Tony Gonzalez has not fumbled since 2006. The Redskins' special-teams unit is abjectly miserable. Let's smash the two into each other in Madden, see what happens, and accept that we will create...

Let's make offsides legal, that sounds fun


Fumbles are glorious, but over the last few decades, they've been on the decline in the NFL. Let's bring them all back. All at once. And let's destroy as many rules of man and God as we need to.

Bo knows Breaking Madden


The legend of Bo Jackson extended to video games. His Tecmo Bowl self remains arguably the greatest athlete in the history of gaming. In this episode, we recreate Bo in Madden NFL 25, and watch him...

Pat McAfee, Destroyer of Worlds


This season, Colts punter Pat McAfee has emerged as a cult hero. In this episode of Breaking Madden, we push his ratings as high as they can go, and find out whether a punter can win a game all by...

1 team, 46 Johnsons


In recent weeks, guys named Johnson have lit up the scoreboard. In this episode of Breaking Madden, we put every Johnson in the NFL on the same team, and we have the GIFs to prove it.

C'mon Favre, join the Rams and give it one more go


The Rams reportedly asked 44-year-old Brett Favre if they could talk him out of retirement. Tragically, he said no. Let's create him in Madden, experience his Gunslingin' majesty in GIFs and...

How to download and play as BEEFTANK


It wouldn't be fair for me to keep BEEFTANK to myself. If you have an Xbox 360, a copy of Madden NFL 25, and an Xbox Live Gold subscription, you can download the rosters you've seen in Breaking...

44 Greg Schianos meet their doom


Bucs head coach Greg Schiano is off to an 0-6 start. Clearly, he does not have enough of his esteemed "Schiano Men" on his roster. Let's release everyone on the Tampa Bay roster, replace them with...

Vince Young and the 90-second rushing play


Houston native Vince Young wants to play football again. The Texans are mired in the dumbest quarterback controversy of the season. Let's put the two together in Madden and see if one man can kill...

Jaguars 42, Broncos 0: The return of BEEFTANK


This Sunday's Broncos-Jaguars appears to be the most one-sided match-up of the 21st century. But not in Madden, where Knowshon Moreno takes the snaps, Peyton Manning is a running back, and human...

One game, 32 touchdowns, 2,400 rushing yards


The Giants' running game is one of the very worst in the NFL. Let's give them Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch, trash the defensive ratings of their Week 5 opponents, and make Madden NFL 25 so...

Geno Smith goes to Football Hell

It's time to see what Jets rookie Geno Smith is really made of. Let's make Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow his wideouts, create an opposing secondary of seven-foot monsters, and cast him into a Madden...

Let's give Peyton Manning the worst O-line ever

For over a decade, Peyton Manning has been a Madden god. Let's destroy him.

Meet BEEFTANK, the Jaguars' 400-pound quarterback
