Wow, does anybody that makes this game even like the Texans? To me, they think we arn't cable of doin anything. Always putting us low on anything, just can't wait till we stun everyone.

The Skins might be the most overrated team but Rogers is the most overrated player. And Roy Williams and Tai Streets are 83s....

If you look at Madden 2004 rosters youll see that Rogers is rated 84 as a rookie, so was AJ. I guess they decided to keep Rogers the same sense they have nothing else to judge off of.

Oh and I think Carr should be at least an 87 because though he may not have the stats of an elite QB he has the arm strength, accuracy and he even has a little speed. His awareness or injury might be low, that would be the only thing to pull him down.

/\ double teaming a player should be more effective this year. I like to jam them at the line, then control one of my ILB's and double up.

Here's an excel spreadsheat that's much more convenient than flipping through each web page per team...

From: ShhDaGreggSpeaks
Nothing new here but I put all of the NFL ratings IGN has released in a neat Excel format. There's a spreadsheet for each team and one spreadsheet for the entire NFL. You can sort them by all of the categories (overall, speed, break tackles) for easy comparison instead of opening each individual team page. You can view it online in the link below. It may not be much help to some but I'm a statistics buff and love comparing things so it's money for me.

http://members.cox.net/gtabot/madden.xls

By the way I'll update the spreadsheet as more teams are released by IGN. I know theres gonna be another four today so I'll get that when it happens. Check it out guys.

Breaking News from ign.com

http://sports.ign.com/articles/536/5...html?fromint=1

EA Sports announces online leagues for Madden.

And the good news is, I know a lot of gamers are concerned about having to pay for features, but this year, they're free. They're being paid by Dodge. So you'll be able to sign up, drop in your credit card number as another way to verify your identity, put in your name and register, and there's no cost to the user this year. We've gone out and signed a deal with Dodge where they're going to be providing everyone's subscription free of charge."

"The best analogy to this is the eBay Power Sellers. What we find is, right now, the EA Sports Nation is largely anonymous. Anyone can register a bogus e-mail address. We have guys with 500 personas on there. As a result, if you're losing and you pull the plug, and your DNF rating goes up, you just switch to another persona and it's no big deal. What we found is that the more we can get people to build up a single account, something that's backed by a validated e-mail address and backed by a validated credit card, the more seriously they're going to take the games being played on that account. That's the general concept.

We are pretty good on Defense
Payne - 87!!!!!
Walker and Coleman - 90
Glenn and Sharper - 94
Foreman - 86
Smith and Wong - 85 (I thought that Smith was going to be higher then Payne and maybe Walker)
D-Rob - 81
Peek and McCree - 77 (Peek has 80 speed!!!!)
Babin and Brown - 74

Steve McKinney is a 89 but Wiegert is only an 84 and Wade is only an 86. Wiegert and Wade should be higher then McKinney IMO....

Bradford and Gaff are both 80s

Glenn and D-Rob are both faster then AJ???

DD has 91 speed and Hollings 90.

Default Madden 2005 Houston Texans

This is how the home team will look on the new Madden when it comes out.

Oh and I just wanted to mention that the top two rookies in the game are Miamis Sean Taylor and Kellen Winslow, both are rated 85.

I think they underrated Carr's speed. I guess you can't give everybody speed especially if they aren't supposed to be running.
