What time today?
Also, lemme take a few guesses...
Best players on offense.
Brady 99
Ochocinco 93
Gronkowski 92
Welker 91
Hernandez 90
Green-Ellis 90
Think maybe Mayo will have around a 95 overall.
McCourty should be around low 90s.

I'm guessing the same time they released the team ratings, so I'd look around 2-2:30 pm et.

They are doing 2 teams a day for the next 16 days

The only player out of that group that will hit 90+ on offense will be Brady and maybe Welker.

You're going to be very disappointed when the ratings come out.

BJGE, Hernandez, and Gronkowski will be nowhere near those ratings. Ocho will probably be high 80s. Mayo will be a little lower also.

@BJGE was a thousand yard rusher last year, w/ 13 TDs. He could get a 90.
@Ochocinco Last time Madden made that mistake with Moss, then his overall jumped up 5 points in Madden 08.
@Hernandez and Gronk they were the best duo this year, and potentially could be one of the best duo of all time.
@Mayo he also led the league in tackles last year.
@McCourty he led the league in interceptions for CBs in his rookie season. He was also 7th in PDs.
Brady's overalls already been released :D.

They got their chances and I gotta dream.

08-01-2011, 07:31 AM
I guarantee Gronk will be 89 at the highest. By themselves and w/o brady throwing to them, they are average tight ends.

08-01-2011, 07:44 AM
the ratings have been out for a while now........... they just havnt been updated.....


eDIT FOUND IT

AFC EAST

Buffalo Bills: 73
The 28th-ranked team in the game, and it's really no surprise when you only have two players on your roster rated an 89 overall or higher and one of those is your punter.


Miami Dolphins: 78
Having two studs at tackle should give Chad Henne plenty of time to hit Brandon Marshall in the open field. But with Henne's 75 throwing accuracy, he might not always find the target.


New York Jets: 87
Tied for the fourth-highest overall rating in "Madden 12," the Jets defense is a force to be reckoned with thanks to Mr. 99 overall Darrelle Revis, not to mention three other defenders rated 90 or higher overall.


New England Patriots: 88
The third-best team in the game, according to the ratings, thanks in part to Tom Brady's 99 overall. But the "Madden" love doesn't stop there as the Patriots feature 21 players rated 80 or higher overall.

AFC WEST


Denver Broncos: 74
It's all about who you want as your starting quarterback in Denver. Tim Tebow is 77 overall with 80 speed and 76 throwing accuracy while Kyle Orton is 82 overall with only 64 speed but 85 accuracy. Really depends on how you like to play "Madden." As a guy who likes mobility, I'll take Tebow.


San Diego Chargers: 85
With Philip Rivers clocking in at 96 overall and Antonio Gates at 99, the Chargers are going to be tearing up defenses through the air. The fact that they have three running backs with 90-plus speed doesn't hurt, either.


Kansas City Chiefs: 84
Jamaal Charles was one of the surprises of the "Madden" cover vote, showing strong support throughout his campaign. His reward? EA Sports makes him one of the most feared backs in Madden with 98 speed.


Oakland Raiders: 76
Darrius Heyward-Bey blazes the virtual field with 97 speed but only has a 68 catching rating. That pretty much sums up the team right there. Oh yeah, Shane Lechler is a beast at 98 overall.


AFC NORTH

Cincinnati Bengals: 71
The second lowest-rated team in "Madden 12," but that shouldn't stop gamers from playing as Cincinnati as this is a team built on receivers who can fly with A.J. Green, Chad Ochocinco, Jordan Shipley, and Jerome Simpson all rated 88 or higher in terms of overall speed.


Cleveland Browns: 74
Peyton Hillis is not only on the cover this year, he's a beast in the game with a 91 overall, 99 toughness and 99 trucking. Talk about a one-man wrecking crew.



Baltimore Ravens: 86
Led by Ed Reed (98 overall), Ray Lewis (95 overall), and Haloti Ngata (97 overall), the Ravens have one of the hardest-hitting defenses in "Madden 12." Ray Rice and his 90 speed should be able to carry the offense, when you're not throwing across the middle to Todd Heap, that is.


Pittsburgh Steelers: 90
The second highest-rated team in the game thanks in part to the dangerous combination of Ben Roethlisberger's 94 throwing power and Mike Wallace's blazing 98 speed. Add to that the 99 overall of former cover athlete Troy Polamalu and you have a team that can do some serious polygonal damage.


AFC SOUTH


Houston Texans: 80
This team might not be able to get over the hump in real life, but in "Madden 12," they're definitely one of the more dangerous offenses to deal with. Houston's Big Three: Matt Schaub (88 overall), Arian Foster (92 overall, 91 speed), and Andre Johnson (97 overall, 94 speed) should make them a popular team online this year.


Indianapolis Colts: 85
Peyton Manning drops to a 98 overall in "Madden 12," but the offense is still deadly thanks to weapons that include Dallas Clark (96 overall), Reggie Wayne (95 overall), and Pierre Garcon (95 speed).


Jacksonville Jaguars: 75
Maurice Jones-Drew leads the way with a 95 overall and 94 speed (not to mention, 89 trucking), but when your leading wide receiver is only an 80 overall, you might have some problems throwing for too many yards, even if with a stud tight end catching the ball over the middle.


Tennessee Titans: 73
People who play as the Titans typically do so for one reason: Chris Johnson. The back looks like a blur running down the field with 99 speed and 99 acceleration, and is pretty much impossible to stop in the open field.

NfC EAST

Dallas Cowboys: 82
Year after year, the Cowboys are a beast in the "Madden" community. This year, look for more of the same as not only do they feature three running backs with 90+ speed (Felix Jones: 96, DeMarco Murray: 93, Lonyae Miller: 90), but three wide receivers with 90+ speed (Miles Austin: 94, Dez Bryant: 94, Roy Williams: 90). Throw in two huge tight ends who seem to catch everything in the game, and you can see why the team is made for "Madden."


Philadelphia Eagles: 86
EA's love affair with the virtual Michael Vick continues as the quarterback looks to reclaim his spot on top of most dominant virtual athletes in history thanks to his "Madden 12" ratings. 91 speed from the quarterback position is just sick, and when you factor in his scrambles could turn into long bombs to DeSean Jackson (99 speed) or Jeremy Maclin (95 speed), I wouldn't be surprised if the Eagles are the most played team in the game.


New York Giants: 83
Justin Tuck is a "Madden" sack master, and the ratings across the defensive line should make things tough for opposing offenses. Look for gamers using the G-Men to hand the ball to Da'Rel Scott as the halfback's 96 speed, 94 acceleration will make him a "Madden" star no matter what the seventh round pick does in the real NFL.


Washington Redskins: 74
Expect custom playbooks to come into play big time with the Redskins as the team features six wide receivers and two running backs with 90+ speed. I'm intrigued to play with this roster myself just to see what I can come up with to utilize all of these weapons.

NFC WEST

Arizona Cardinals: 70
If you have the Cardinals in your "Lowest Rated Team in 'Madden 12'" pool, congratulations, you're the big winner. Playing as Arizona, your best bet is throwing to former cover star Larry Fitzgerald and getting the ball to LaRod Stephens-Howling in space. With 93 speed, Stephens-Howling can make people miss and take it to the house on any play.


San Francisco 49ers: 77
The 49ers just signed Alex Smith to be their starter in real life, but in "Madden 12," the Colin Kaepernick era has already started thanks to the rookie's impressive 85 speed, 81 acceleration, 92 throwing power, and 75 throwing accuracy. Gamers can definitely find ways to win with a quarterback like that.


St. Louis Rams: 78
With fast receivers like Donnie Avery (96 speed) and Laurent Robinson (92 speed) stretching the field, Steven Jackson (94 overall, 87 speed, 90 acceleration) should have plenty of running lanes opening up underneath.


Seattle Seahawks: 76
Marshawn Lynch went into beast mode during the playoffs, and his numbers reflect his effort as the back boasts 96 trucking power. Look for Mike Williams to also make an impact as he's the type of big receiver that has dominated "Madden" throughout the years (and his 95 spectacular catch rating doesn't hurt, either).


NFC NORTH

Green Bay Packers: 92
No surprise here as the Super Bowl champs are the highest-rated team in "Madden 12." Aaron Rodgers falls just one point short of "Madden" perfection, with a 98 overall, while Charles Woodson (93 overall) and Tramon Williams (92 overall) will keep the corners on lock.


Chicago Bears: 85
Combine Jay Cutler's 98 throwing power with Devin Hester (98 speed) and Johnny Knox (97 speed) going deep, and you have a very fun "Madden" team. Throw in the running of Matt Forte, and you have an offense to be feared.


Detroit Lions: 76
The overall team number is a little low, but I can see the Lions being a popular team this year for the simple fact that this defensive line is going to give people headaches. Suh (95 hit power) and Fairley (88 hit power) are going to abuse virtual backs so bad, "Madden" might need to bring back the old ambulance.


Minnesota Vikings: 74
Ever since Adrian Peterson stormed the league, the Vikings have been a popular pick to play as in "Madden." But if you're still playing as them this year, it's really only because you want to run the ball down your friend's throat as All Day. And why not when the back boasts a 97 overall rating with 97 speed, 97 acceleration, and 90 trucking.


NFC SOUTH


Atlanta Falcons: 87
Roddy White (96 overall, 92 speed) and Julio Jones (78 overall, 94 speed) provide Matt Ryan with plenty of firepower from the outside, while Michael Turner (93 overall) and Jerious Norwood (95) are just the type of one-two punch from the backfield "Madden" gamers live for.


New Orleans Saints: 85
Drew Brees has three receivers with over 90 speed to throw to, and a rookie runner in Mark Ingram who struts onto the field with 95 toughness and 87 trucking. Talk about a team that can drive a defense crazy.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 84
When I got the ratings, one of the first things I looked up was LeGarrette Blount's jump rating (84), but it's his 98 trucking ability that will make him a "Madden" favorite up the middle.


Carolina Panthers: 72
Cam Newton is going to be a handful for virtual defenses. Check these numbers: 83 speed, 94 acceleration, 97 throwing power, 81 throwing accuracy. Should make Steve Smith a happy man.

No he's not. He currently has the title of best receiving TE, but he'll be losing that shortly if Jermichael Finley can stay healthy.

Jason Witten is the best tight end in football because he does it all. Receiving + blocking.

08-01-2011, 08:06 AM
My impressions on Buffalo:

Ryan Fitzpatrick is an 81. Seems fair. Fred Jackson 80, CJ Spiller 75. Fair for each, but is Jackson really that better than Spiller? The gap seems a bit closer than last year. Also, Spiller's speed is a 95, should be around a 97.

Steve Johnson is an 86 (fair IMO). Lee Evans 81 (should be lower, this is probably based off of reputation, his 96 speed helps too.) But oh my the rest of the receivers are awful. Roscoe Parrish is a 71 and everyone else is below 70.

Best O-Linemen are Levitre and Wood at 82. The rest is bleh.

Kyle Williams is a 93. wow. Dwan Edwards 83 and Dareus an 82. Everyone else below 70.

Paul Poluznzy is an 87 (these arent updated obviously). Merriman is an 80. Andra Davis 76. Never heard of any of the other linebackers.

Secondary is nice. Whitner is an 85, Byrd an 84. McGee 83, McKelvin 80. One problem will be that besides McGee, everyone's awareness sucks

grizz101
08-01-2011, 08:14 AM
Dolphins:
Well good luck with your QB goals. Chad Henne is a 77. Matt Moore won't be any better.

Ronnie Brown is an 84, Ricky Williams 80, Daniel Thomas 70. Brown has 91 speed. Now let's see where Bush is.

Brandon Marshall 92 with 96 catching. Good luck finding anyone else to throw too though. Fasano is underrated at a 75. Bess is a 78. Hartline 74.

Jake Long 97 (beast) Vernon Carey is a 90, everyone else is below 80.

Karlos Dansby 90. Cameron Wake 89 with a 98 pursuit rating.

And WOW! Langford is rated higher than Randy Starks. Whaattt? (88 and 86)

Solai is an 86, Odrick a 78.

-How the hell is Davone Bess only a 78? He's right now a top 3 slot receiver in the league. How is he not an 84-85+?
-I wish they showed blocking rating for WRs/TEs. Really interested to see what Marshall's, Fasano's and Clay's blocking ratings are
-lol at Edmund Gates only having a 94 speed. He had a slow combine time and it was a 4.37. Should be closer to 98 speed.
-Are they going to update the rosters now? I don't wanna see R&R up there anymore and I wanna see Burnett/Bush
-Vernon Carey a 90? He's still a top 5 RT in the league, but he was pretty shiitty last year because of injuries. Surprised it's not around 85.
-Incognito/Pouncey will be in the mid 80s by season end
-Berger should be no higher than a 70
-Thought Dansby/Wake should be higher, but that's still solid
-Strong power move Koa Misi (88 lol-higher than Langford and Soliai)
-That D-Line is nasty. So deep.
-McDaniel only a 69? I understand they can't make the 6th best D-Lineman that great, but he finished last season with a 74 rating...Surprised it dropped 5 points like that
-Surprised Bell is that high. I expected low 80s
-Surprised Clemons is that high. He is downright awful and will lose his starting job at some point this season
-lol how the fuk is Benny Sapp a 70? How is he not a 55?


Damn, I was pretty solid with my predictions.

Langford- 86 (88)/McDaniel- 76 (69, BS)
Soliai- 88 (86)

No he's not. He currently has the title of best receiving TE, but he'll be losing that shortly if Jermichael Finley can stay healthy.

Jason Witten is the best tight end in football because he does it all. Receiving + blocking.

when it comes to madden nobody cares about blocking, but i do agree witten is a more well rounded tight end. still would rather have gates on my team.

This is gonna be long. Cliff notes are bolded. Packers fans will enjoy it though. In b4 math nerd

In 17.5 games..

17 Sacks, nearly 1 per game
55 pressures, over 3 per game
6 take away plays, and 6.5 tackles for loss
Dropped back 135/398 (34%) pass plays, thats a quite a bit.

But the most impressive stat? He was double teamed 35.2% of the time.

So

398 pass plays against the packers last year, where Clay was in.

135 he dropped into coverage (this doesn't include spying which he did a lot of in the playoffs)

So that's 263 times he rushed the quarterback.

Sacks- 17/263= 6%
Pressures- 55/263= 21%
= 27% of plays Clay is in the Qb's face

BUT THIS INCLUDES DOUBLE TEAMS

Just for fun, what about when Clay is NOT DOUBLE TEAMED?

263-35.2%=170
We are down to 170 plays where Clay rushes the QB, with just one guy to beat. This is where the fun begins!


Clay Matthews 1v1 stats on passing plays...

Sacks- 17/170= 10%
Pressures- 55/170=35.2%
Combined- 72/170=42.3%

TOTAL IMPACT 1v1= 42.3% of passes!!!

*Disclaimer*
these numbers may be slightly exaggerated, as he made plays when double teamed. But this could be negated for times he is a spy, since hes at the LOS thats not considered "coverage" (I think)

So yeah, go ahead and compile some stats on Cameron Wake, I'll even crunch the numbers for you. Doubt he could hold Clays jock, though

Oh yea one more tidbit, he played all year... WITH A BAD SHIN!!!

Clay Matthews was robbed of DPOY, and everyone knows it.

There were 398 pass plays against the packers
Clay doesnt rush all the time, he dropped back 135 of those times

Does that not sound right? Lets look at someone they play twice per year, Cutler. Last year Cutler threw 432 passes. Packers had 398 pass plays against them (that clay was in) thats pretty close.

2. LOL at 557 pass rushes. That means, even if Clay rushed EVERY PLAY, and played EVERY SNAP, he would have 38 pass rush attempts per game(not icluding playoffs). That number is so far off its not even funny. No QB averages 38 attempts per game.

Actually, I have found exactly how our numbers correlate.

Your numbers are basically snaps played on passing downs, but they do not take into account "pass rushes" even though its labeled that way. They are retarded.

Math to prove it.

NFL.com says 670 passes against the Packers (including playoffs)
Clay dropped back 34% of the time=670-227=457.

That means 457 attempts against the Packers, minus the game and a half Clay missed, plus various snaps here and there, and you are probably left with my original number, 398 pass rush attempts by Clay

Because he shouldn't be 7 points higher than Wake lol. What are you getting at?



That's retarded. Let's look at all plays in general.

Cam Wake: 445 pass rush snaps, 14 sacks, 66 QB disruptions (12.02 PRP)
Clay Matthews: 557 pass rush snaps, 13.5 sacks, 74 QB disruptions (10.73 PRP)

7 points higher in Madden? lol

Cam Wake is a one year wonder from the CFL as of right now.

Clay Matthews was 2nd in voting for DPOY, an All Pro, two time Pro Bowler, and a defending superbowl champion.
herp, derp.

Matt Cassel-87

Brandon Flowers- 90
Tony Moeaki- 85

McCourty's play was unreal last year. 7 Interceptions and 24 Pass deflections led the league for Corners. Definitely one of the best out there, just a smart, athletic player.

Beliedat
08-02-2011, 02:39 PM
What time today?
Also, lemme take a few guesses...
Best players on offense.
Brady 99
Ochocinco 93
Gronkowski 92
Welker 91
Hernandez 90
Green-Ellis 90
Think maybe Mayo will have around a 95 overall.
McCourty should be around low 90s.


@BJGE was a thousand yard rusher last year, w/ 13 TDs. He could get a 90.
@Ochocinco Last time Madden made that mistake with Moss, then his overall jumped up 5 points in Madden 08.
@Hernandez and Gronk they were the best duo this year, and potentially could be one of the best duo of all time.
@Mayo he also led the league in tackles last year.
@McCourty he led the league in interceptions for CBs in his rookie season. He was also 7th in PDs.
Brady's overalls already been released :D.

They got their chances and I gotta dream.


In my defense Gronk should be ranked higher. He would have broke Ditkas rookie TE TD record easily if he was the primary TE.


McCourty's play was unreal last year. 7 Interceptions and 24 Pass deflections led the league for Corners. Definitely one of the best out there, just a smart, athletic player.

McCourty also 28.00%
Berry had 28.57%
Of his teams interceptions.

It's tough to compare two different positions as you said. I still don't think Berry showed that he should have any higher overall than McCourty.

Broncos and Chiefs are out!

Broncos:
Orton 82. Tebow 77. Really though Tebow is probably the better QB to use in Madden.

and WHAT? Knowshon Moreno is an 85....really? Are you kidding? What has he proven in the NFL so far??????? I mean he's rated better than Ronnie Brown! He has 97 agility.

other HB's: Buckhalter 76, White 73, Maroney 71

Brandon Lloyd is an 88...fair IMO, maybe should of been an 89/90 ish but lets face it he's only had one great year. Is rated a 99 in spectacular catch. Eddie Royal 76 with 95 speed, Gaffney 73. Demariyus Thomas 73.

O-Line: Ryan Clady's a 92.

D-Line: Elvis Dumervil is a 91. Sucks, probably would have been higher without the injury. 98 rating in finnese moves. Him combined with Ty Warren (84) is gonna be SICK!

Linebackers: DJ Williams 89 (95 pursuit and hit power), Von Miller 79

Secondary: Champ Bailey is a 97...ok he should be a little lower. Still in the 90's, but really? He's like 34. Great great player, but 97 is pushing it. Maybe like a 95. Brian Dawkins 87 (proof that Madden gives players rating boosts based off of reputation). Goodman 86, Hill 80.

Chiefs:
And Matt Cassell is........an 86. Fair, someone predicted earlier that he would be an 87. I think 86 is fair. No ratings even stand out he's just very good at everything.

Jamaal Charles 95, with 98 speed and elusiveness. Thomas Jones 84 (91 awareness.)

Bowe is a 91. Higher than expected and I like it. I think he is a great player. 98 rating for Catch in Traffic. Chiefs fans bout to get mad though....Moeaki is a 76. Wow, he should be like an 80 at least. Baldwin is a 71. Breaston added in here will make them a lot better.

For what its worth, Waters is a 91. They're gonna miss him. Albert and Lilja are both an 86.

Glenn Dorsey and Edwards both 81. Tyson Jackson a 76. And WTF at Wallace Gilberry being a 64?

Tambia Hali a 91, Derrick Williams 86.

And Eric Berry is....an 88. Thought he should of been a 90, but oh well. Brandon Flowers is a 91, Brandon Carr 81.

I hate this logic. Champ has played as good as any corner in the nfl the past 2 years he's been healthy. Just because he's older doesn't mean his play shouldn't speak for itself.

Tebow should still be a lot of fun to play with. Sucks Doom is so low but as mentioned his rating should go up as the year progresses.
