You can create historic players at create-a-player, the commenatators will call their names and not their numbers.
The ones that I discovered are Dan Marino, Warren Moon, Steve Young, Phil Simms, Herschel Walker, Joe Montana, Roger Craig, O.J. Simpson, Barry Sanders, Gale Sayers, Michael Irving, William Perry, Deion Sanders, Art Shell, Mike Singletary, Jackie Slater, Howie Long.
I suspect that these players are unlockables upon getting gold at mini camp. If I discover anymore I will post them.
By the way I just won the Super Bowl (ALL-MADDEN DIFFICULTY) using Miami, of course I should mention that I did not use Fiedler, but I used Marino (created).
I beat the 49ers 31-9, So it is not impossible to win at all madden level, further more my record was 14-2. So there is hope, so keep practicing and get to know your playbook and players.
