Earlier today, the 8th Circuit decided to grant the owners with a stay. That basically means that the lockout is still on, and that we will have to wait even longer to watch the Rams go 16-0.
Through all of my tears, I saw that Madden franchise blog was finally uploaded. Of course I read the details, and said damn this is going to be the best Madden ever. I know I said this last year too, but hey we have to have some reason to shell out $60 for a game nowadays.
Now after I read the details of the blog, I saw a picture of nine players on the Rams roster and their ratings. I know how popular madden is today, so after the jump lets look at some observations, I made when looking at the picture.
I would also like it to be known that we don't know if the ratings will change. I doubt it, but it could happen.
Jason Smith is rated an 89, with Bell and Brown as 88s.
I don't know why these three are so highly ranked. I would think Saffold would be higher then at least Bell, but hey this should make playing offense a little easier.
James L, and Chris Long are the Rams highest rated defenders.
I would agree with that statement. I'm just surprised that EA rated them this high. Good job with that EA.
Steven Jackson is the highest rated player on the Rams with a 93.
I think this is in the ball park. Steven Jackson didn't have the best season, but I would still put in the top 5.
Sam Bradford has an rating of 85.
I love this rating. Bradford had a great rookie season, and he is getting his just due. I would like to see how he ranks compared to the other quarterbacks in the league also.
Ron Bartell wasn't better than an 85 last season?
Damn talk about a big snub. Ron Bartell was probably ranked lower then an 85, because he didn't get an interception. That makes since, but he is a better player then whatever his ranking will be.
The Rams don't have a wide receiver over 85.
I know this doesn't surprise anyone. It will be interesting to see who they gave the Rams as their highest rated receiver. It should be Danny Amendola, but we will see.
