Does anyone miss the NFL 2k series?

I played NFL 2k way back when it came out on the Sega Dreamcast! The internet has consistently told me that NFL 2k5 was the greatest football game ever made. I'm inclined to believe them after being extremely disappointed going from Madden 09 to Madden 12. It was just more the same and my team (Indianapolis Colts) sucked that year and it was sad watching there overall rating slowly slide down via updates as the season wore on. (Although I did enjoy putting Peyton Manning back as the starting quarter back.) All in all Madden has never really down much of anything more quite a few years. If only 2k sports football could come back.
