Bleacher Report’s Madden 25 Simulation Predicts Bears as NFL’s Worst Team


For all of the preseason hype of a new offensive scheme and an influx of young talent to the Chicago Bears, Madden 25 isn’t buying it.  At least the 2013 NFL Season simulation that Bleacher Report ran isn’t buying it.

I received a notification on my TeamStream app with Madden 25 Simulation for the 2013 NFL season.  Since I had just published the official Bear Goggles On team’s NFL and Bears predictions, I was naturally curious how Madden 25 predicted the 2013 season would play out.  I should have kept my smartphone in my pocket and paid attention to the meeting I was sitting in.  

The results were not good for the Beloved.  At least they weren’t good if you were planning on actually watching winning football.  Here are the NFC Final Standings, as churned out by B/R’s Madden 25 sim:

Team Final Record
Seattle 13-3
Philadelphia 11-5
New Orleans 11-5
San Francisco 10-6
Atlanta 10-6
Detroit 10-6
Tampa Bay 10-6
Minnesota 9-7
Green Bay 9-7
Carolina 8-8
New York 8-8
St. Louis 7-9
Washington 7-9
Dallas 5-11
Arizona 5-11
Chicago 2-14

Yup, that’s right. They have the Bears alllll the way at the bottom of the NFC with a 2-14 record. To make matters worse, the worst AFC team according to this simulation is the 3-13 Jacksonville Jaguars.

Doesn’t Madden 25 know that the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings reside in our division?  Don’t they realize that Marc Trestman is going to revamp the offense and the defense will actually be better without Urlacher and his bad wheels slowing them down?

If this result is anywhere close to accurate, you had better believe that Jay Cutler will be gone and the biggest question for Phil Emery will be whether to take Jadeveon Clowney or Teddy Bridgewater with the first pick in the NFL draft.

What do you think?  Is there any way this Madden simulation is anywhere near accurate?  Could the Bears possibly flop this badly in 2013?  Let’s see you comments.  You can log in using your Twitter, Facebook or Google accounts.  Go ahead and post a Comment.  DO IT!!!

    There must have been a catastrophic injury bug going around the virtual Bears

      I actually reached out to the B/R author, who’s also a FanSider, and he’s going to get me the info on how they arrived at that simulation result. Stay tuned…

    If it were to happen that way we’d be taking teddy cause cutler would be gone

    • BearGogglesOn

      Don’t forget, we’d have the top pick in Rd. 2. Brees was taken in that spot. I don’t know if they could pass on a once in a decade defensive player like Clowney.

    This is complete crap. Is it possible this scenario plays out like this? Sure. Is it likely? Oh heck no! The Bears are more likely to win 14 games than to lose 14 games.

  • Teddy Boyd

    That seems about right. I can see Cutler raging and complaining about Marshal and Forte not breaking 300 tackles a game. He would then probably kick a Gatorade cup and break his ankle tearing multiple ligaments done for the season. Forte then demanding a trade and going to New England and Marshal going AWOL leaving Jeffery to leave.

    I’m not buying the madden game!
