If they waited, they could assign more accurate ratings and get the majority of the rosters right. I'd be willing to wait an extra couple of months to get the game at it's best.

Just my two cents.
To EA Sports it's all about the Benjamins. Like CKW said you can always update the roster.

Even though it's just one point I think that AJ should be a 97. I'd make Demeco a 96 and Mario a 95. Like the others have said, Greenwood higher than Dunta?!?

I think Greenwood is deserving of high 80s rating. He is super consistent, and the coaches love him.

For some reson, the TT crowd is down on him because of his contract (legitimate gripe)

Madden 09 will be the first time I've played Madden on the most current platform, so I guess I assumed that those two consoles had all kinds of online updates constantly. Is that not the case?
Unfortunately, not everyone has an internet connection hooked up to their gaming system. It would be far more considerate to just not release the game until the roster is at its most correct. Rather than just dumping out the half assed version and telling everyone: "Oh well. Buy more crap for your gaming system".

While it would be 'considerate', it is by no means practical. One of the joys of madden is playing from the beginning of the season along with your team. With the plethora of roster changes, the game would never be released.

True, it would never be perfect. However, they could at least wait until past the trade deadline...which would make the rosters fairly accurate upon release. As for playing the season along with your team, I would rather just get caught up with an accurate roster than be irritated by a roster that is about half screwed up. Then again, it seems that I am the only one who will be purchasing Madden 09 for the PS2, which I do not have connected to the internet.

Default Re: Respect for the texans in Madden 09

From those screenshots , it looks like they are going with the NFL Network style scoreboard on top right in the middle of the screen !! I'm not too sure how I feel about that . I could also tell that the field surfaces no longer look like carpet .

i thought mario would be a 93 overall, but hey, i aint complaining

but apparently i heard from sports gamers that those aren't the final ratings, EA may change them, so don't be suprise if mario falls to a 93 - 94 range

speaking of over rated.... i think calvin johnson is over rated in madden (just a tad), he's a 92 overall, higher than dewayne bowe who had the better season between the two, i know calvin johnsons a beast but he didn't do anything to be a 92, imo he should be a 87-88, same goes to amobi

The problem is that madden develops its rankings based on physical stats + awareness.

So if a guy is a speed demon, can jump well, has good accel and good hands, etc, he is going to have to have an awareness of 40 to keep him out of the 90s

Its like Reggie Bush. He may not be productive, but based on Madden style ratings, he is highly rated

In order for them to make it more realistic, they'd have to include ratings like work ethic and football knowledge, etc, which would probably get sticky with the players union

They could add something like MISCELLANEOUS or INTANGIBLES and then they don't have to say what actually goes in there.
