In Madden19 they introduced player specific emotions, for example Ray Lewis and his signature dance. You can clearly see notice the difference. And the point of the names is the whole point of being a Football fan and not just a gamer.
Oh yes, and that is where they waste their resources when they should be putting more effort into gameplay. Put a pretty bow with a Ray Lewis dance on a pile of crap and you still have a pile of crap.
The players are stats with a name attached... who the hell cares what name they use? The player's name is the most useless thing on the card. Think about it the next time they drop a NTL or Aaron Donald card that is worse than previously released cards but are in more demand.
