    Predicting Rookie Careers With Madden '09

    It turned out that Joe Flacco had the most successful career of any of these three players, even if his ratings weren't as high at times. Flacco got to start immediately and put up very solid numbers, leading the 2008 Ravens to 10 wins and the AFC North title, picking up the AFC Rookie of the Year trophy in the process. The Ravens struggled in 2009, but made the playoffs in 2011 and 2012, with Flacco making the Pro Bowl both years. He left the team in free agency, moving on to the blue skies of Kansas City, where he'd spend the rest of his career.

    Flacco didn't break down till the end of his career, but when he did, it came fast. His best year was 2016, when he won the NFL MVP award for leading a 14-2 Chiefs team to the Super Bowl. He fractured his patella the year afterwards in the first series of his Week 2 game, an injury that appeared to haunt him for the rest of his career. He spent one more year as the starter with uneven results, before he was replaced by a 36-year-old Vince Young, still going strong at a 94 overall rating. Flacco saw playing time from the bench when Young went down, but by 2021, he'd had enough and called it a career.

    All in all, Madden seems to predict that Joe Flacco will have the best career of these three players. We'll have to check back in 15 years and see if that was really the case.
    Flacco to leave us in 5 YEARS!!!! Ilmao!!!
