Crazy that they have Malcolm Butler rated at a 92 - higher than Sherman, Peterson and of course Jack Rabbit & DRC

LOL. Exactly how I felt when looking at the ratings.

Every time around this year I think about what 2K would be releasing...

Admit it, you're hammered and you saw Roethlisberger quickly and digested it as Osweiler. ADMIT IT
seems like they have an antipathy

towards players whose first name is Eli.
Amazing..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 8/8/2017 1:37 pm : link
that Sam Bradford continues to get the benefit of the doubt as being a good QB. He should explode immediately upon impact with any defender in Madden.
The most surprising things to me...  
moze1021 : 8/8/2017 1:44 pm : link
beside Eli..

OBJ at 93 vs Julio at 98 and AB at 97

OV and JPP at 88 vs Brandon Graham at 95
LOL  
santacruzom : 8/8/2017 2:08 pm : link
EA thinks Brandon Graham is a better player than anyone on the Giants' roster?

That's just goofy.
I'd love to see...

Back in 1998 my buddies and I played a season in Madden where I randomly drew the Detroit Lions as my team. I resolved to give Barry Sanders the ball an inhuman amount.

So a bunch of us are hanging out and I'm getting a game in with one of the other guys. As I'm reaching for my beer after Barry's 25th run of the first half I hear someone say, "He's not getting up." In horror I look up to see a broken Barry Sanders lying motionless on the field. Over everyone else's laughter someone else says, "Bring out the ambulance!" You'll remember that the ambulance was usually the indicator of the severity of the injury...

Out the ambulance came. In all my years of playing video games that's as horrified as I've ever been by a single moment.
GT..

I never realized until getting this pic that the NFL made EA remove the ambulance!

The Madden games are PR for the league, and its licensing rights are so valuable that it can strongly control its portrayal, so why wouldn't it? But that sensitivity bordered on the absurd with the release of Madden NFL 11, which introduced "dynamic attendance"ójust like in the real world, certain teams sold out and others didn't.

"We incorporated accurate attendance for all the teams, and Jacksonville always had these terrible turnouts," says one producer. "The Jags owner got all pissed off when he heard there were empty seats when you played as his team in the game. The team called the NFL and we had to fix it immediately."

Speaking of John Madden - where is he these days? Don't him interviewed anywhere ... quoted?
Madden's had hip replacement...  
FatMan in Charlotte : 8/8/2017 3:12 pm : link
and I know he's slowed down, but I think he's still considered to be of sound mind.

He was very vocal about the Raiders moving to Las Vegas. Here's an article from a couple months ago:

The dumb Eli and OV/JPP/Graham stuff aside. Catch this.

Eli Apple was a rookie and was labled an 83 (or 82). After a solid rookie campaign, no he wasn't great, but he drops six points? Is there a thoughful algorithm here or just slapping anything that sticks?

Oh and Eli was a low 80s last year too coming off a 35 TD season.
to be fair to Madden

Eli Manning should easily be the lowest-rated QB who has more Super Bowl wins/MVP's than the combined total of

Ryan
Luck
Carr
Newton
Stafford
Prescott
Cousins
Rivers
Dalton
Palmer
Bradford
Tannehill
Tyrod Taylor
Alex Smith
Winston
Mariota
