Madden Doesn't Like Donovan McNabb's 'Cardiovascular Endurance' Either

One of the coolest things about Madden is how it has roster updates every week that are detailed, specific and current. For example, it already has Randy Moss on the Titans. That's pretty sweet for those who want to experiment with Moss in an actual game setting before the Titans do.

Here's the problem: these roster updates take Mike Shanahan quite literally. Shanahan, of course, claimed he benched Donovan McNabb in Sunday's game against the Lions because he lacked proper "cardiovascular endurance" due to a nagging hamstring injury. It was a ridiculous phrase that even his brother didn't think he meant. Madden, however, clearly assumed Shanahan actually was making sense, because they've dropped McNabb's "conditioning" rating from 95 to 87.

↵↵In reaction to his benching and the reasoning given by Mike Shanahan the stamina rating for Donovan McNabb has taken an eight point hit.

No word if his "puking" rating has risen.
