    Just some issues...

    -Heath Evans is an 84, yet he may not make the team.
    -Chad Scott at 83, making him the #2 rated CB on the roster, he'll be #4 CB at best. Put him down 5.
    -Warfield is 81, and the #3 rated CB, yet he will be competing with Scott for spot #4 behind Samuel, Hobbs, and Gay. Too high.
    -Ross Tucker at 81... whoa. This guy was competing for OL spot #8 or 9 before he was traded. Should be 5 or more notches lower.
    -Hobbs has been playing as the #1 CB in camp and should be rated the same as Samuel, 84ish.
    -Sullivan might not even make the team, and has been a disappointment completely so far. 79 is way too high.
    -Jackson was arguably the #1 WR prospect in the draft, should only be a notch below Maroney.
    -Ummm... where is Stephen Gostkowski, the Patriots starting kicker?! Wow!
    -On the same note as above... they add in Corey Bramlet and Freddie Roach, 2 UDFAs who will likely be on the PS, yet forget the first kicker drafted and a surefire starter. Just pathetic.
    -With the ways things are looking in camp, Eugene Wilson may be playing a lot of CB leaving the FS spot open. Regardless of what happens with him, James Sanders and Artrell Hawkins will see quite a bit of playing time. Sanders should be a couple notches higher and Hawkins should at least be in the game!!
    -Kaczur started 11 games as a rookie last year and is competing for the starting RT spot. Should be 79ish.
    -Marquise Hill has been a major disappointment and doesn't look like he will ever prove much, drop him down a bit.
    -Klecko may be a feel good story and all, but he is struggling to make the team and definitely shouldn't be that high. 68ish.
    -Cassel has been impressive as backup and should be a few notches higher. The fact that no vet backup has been brought in shows the coaches confidence in him.
    -Gene Mruc is a very good backup and will see some playing time this year. Should be in the low 70s.
    -Childress will be #5 WR and should see some playing time, should be high 60s instead of low 60s.
    -One of the team captains, Izzo, isn't in the game, again.
    -The Patriots 2 starting ILBs for Friday's game, Barry Gardner and Don Davis, aren't even in the game...
    -6 rookies who should all make the team... are not in the game.

    damn they dropped Coreys agility a lot..from 87-89 i believe last year to 83 :\

    poor Guss Scott at 64

    DeAngelo Williams is rated 81 and they have him faster than Maroney..such BS

    Joseph Addai faster too at 94 speed!

    i mean hes fast but i guess they took his 40 too far

    Maroney is very arguably fastest RB behind Bush but guess they dont think so..Holmes is higher than Jackson..

    Patriot haters


    just as bad ratings as the fake 1s

    The only he has to do with that game is his name on box. I would bet he doesn't do any of the ratings.

    87 is a lot for a rookie who hasnt played a down in the NFL.

    I may sound crazy, but Madden would be soooooooo much better if they didn't rate the players at all.

    Madden has probably zero input when it comes to player ratings. That is up too the dumbass producers that don't know **** about football. Year after year they leave out key features and refuse to fix bugs that are in the game. Oh well, the ratings they put out aren't going to satisfy everyone. But Maroney a 90 speed? I found that many experts that have watched Maroney say that he is a game breaker that can take it the distance, So the 90 speed rating should be around 95. Everyone has said that flat out that Maroney can fly, he is that fast. Apparently the people at EA didn't see that. For people that play Madden football, a 90 speed is really slow. Too bad my playstation broke so I can't play it.

    Maroneys speed should of been up around 93 in my opinion and agility is fine at 92

    That's always funny to me. No matter which group of friends I've ever had, there's always been one of our football fan friends that was 'too good' for videogame football.

    "It's just a GAME." He'd say.

    "So is FOOTBALL." We'd say.

    "But at least that's a REAL GAME, videogames are FAKE GAMES." He'd counter.

    Then we'd throw the videogame box at him and ask him if it FELT fake.

    They will fix these by the start of the season with the first roster update usually around week 1 after camps and the first batch of injuries.

    The way they do the ratings, is by hiring scouts from companies such as scouts inc. and other so called "PROFESSIONAL" groups. I'd always laugh my ass of when starters on the pats were left off the game, or there was that time that S. Neal was black, and when I finally saw him on T.V. I was thinking to myself "who the hell is this guy?" I was living a Madden induced lie all season long. As far as the player rankings go, who cares? Take those players and coach there asses off. It's not like you cannot improve their numbers over the long haul of the seasons. Let's just all hope this yrs. Madden is a good one.
    Also, for all of you out there with a 360 and xbox live, we should hook up and play some type of tourney sometime during the football yr.

    yeah they had Bruschi as a FA last year i think..didnt have Hobbs our 3rd rounder. i mean its pretty common sense as to who will make roster besides the 5th-6th guys
