Thoughts?
Tuck Rated higher that Cole ?

Really ?

Why, because Tuck had a sack and a half more than Cole in 2010 ? What about 2009 ? What about the fact that Cole and Tuck have been in the league for the same number of years, but Cole has more total sacks and tackles than Tuck ? You also have to take into account that with Osi playing on the other end, Tuck gets a lot more one on one opportunities.

It's one point.

Ngata doesn't even play the same position as the rest...learn to 3-4, EA.

I wonder why the DEs are rated so much lower than the LBs who were consistently around 98-97. Not that I'm complaining; mid 90s is about where I think every position should top out at.

The list does highlight what I thought about the linebacker group, that they should have at least been separated inside from outside, because Ngata isn't playing the same position as Tuck and the rest. But if we are going to mix 3-4 and 4-3 ends, then where is Justin Smith?

my biggest sleeper at DT is Terrance Cody.

His ratings last year were unreal for a DT.

97 strength and 97 block shed

(might be 98 for both)

guy is a monster in stopping the run

Cole might be the most complete 4-3 DE.

Why is EA including Ngata with defensive ends? He plays inside the vast majority of the time including obvious passing situations.

He plays more snaps inside than he does at end. Everywhere you look he's listed at defensive tackle even on the Ravens web site.

They had this list on sportsnation today and when Ngata was one everyone was like uhhhhhh wtf? kinda funny actually
 
# 12 cmehustle @ 08/05/11 06:02 AM
I wish EA would learn to differentiate a 3-4 end from a 4-3. so funny when in your season pittsburg signs some end that weighs like 230 to play end in their scheme....not trying to rant tho

Yes I kept him for all eight seasons in an online franchise. Straight beast. They need to get Arthur Jones up.

Dwight Freeney needs to be higher by a few points and Jared Allen a few lower, my only complaint
