Because EA only want money, they don't care about making a good football game. they farm out a new version of the game with a new gimick each year, and all they do is mess around with the game settings to make it seem different. Ie: better AI defending = worse AI for team mates. If they spent half as long on the actual gameplay than they did on the player likeness' the game might amount to something.
