Madden 2006 was a half-assed game that EA tried to pull out. Luckly i rented that game and hated it. Anyway let's get to the point. Madden 2005 continutes to dominate with it's franchise mode and even adding Storyline Central to mix things up a bit which is great. The mini-games and camp are loads of fun. The gameplay is good, can use improvements but it is good and wayyy better than Madden 06. Madden 06 added pointless features like the QB vision, Vision Cone, and even superstar mode which can use loads of improvements. So with that go with Madden 05 as it is better and cheaper and u will enjoy it more than Madden 06 even though it's a bit on the easy side.
