ESPN Is Now Using ‘Madden 13’ Simulations to Preview NFL Games

Oh no… has it come to this?

After interviewing Liam Neeson on the chances of the New York Jets and shooting hockey analysis in Scott Burnside’s living room, ESPN has now resorted to having its high-paid and uber-talented pros narrate fake highlights from Madden 13. Yes, this is what passes for a PREVIEW now. Honestly, if anybody else was doing this and getting paid for it, they should feel guilty. They should feel like they are single-handedly contributing to the largest work shortage since 1933.
