Tyler Palko will be making his first start at quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs Monday night against the New England Patriots. Expectations are not that high, but its anyones guess when it comes to Tyler Palko and his ability to move the Chiefs offense. I thought it would be fun to do a Madden 12 simulation with Cyber Palko running the show.
Simulation Formula :
As most Madden fans know, sometimes the game can be a bit unrealistic. So we will take the average of 5 simulations to come up with our final analysis. The roster that we will use is the current download made available by EA Sports. The weather forecast is predicting light rain, so we will also use that in our simulations. The difficulty is set to All-Madden and the quarters will be set to the traditional 15 minutes.
I’m afraid the results do not bode well for the Chiefs. The Chiefs only won 1 out of the 5 simulations. 3 of the games the Patriots won were complete blow outs. Here is what the simulation has concluded.
Palkos Numbers: (average of 5 simulations)
14 completions on 32 attempts, 196 yards passing, with a 44% completion percentage, while averaging 1 touchdown pass, 2 interceptions and a qb rating of 52.4. He carried the rock 5 times for 32 yards and had 1 touchdown run in each simulation.
Final Score Average: New England Patriots 31 Kansas City Chiefs 10
The folks at EA have Ricky Stanzi rated at a 68 overall to Palkos 65 overall rating. I simulated 2 games with Stanzi just out of curiosity, he averaged just one more touchdown than Palko but did not throw any picks, while averaging 242 passing yards. The Chiefs lost both simulations but the scores were closer than those with Palko, but a loss is a loss. We will see tonight how close our sim reults match the actual game, let’s hope the simulations are wrong.
