Wheres LT? Want he a 99 last year?

what a rise for Jamaal Charles - madden purposes hes the number 1 back in the game with great speed, elu, and cth ratings

all these guys are deserving of top 5 material

i think we might be seeing the fall of MJD and the rise of Arian Foster after this season

MJD has some scary knee injuries last year and if Foster can keep it up watch out.

Dang, Jamaal Charles?!? I know he was doing work in KC last year, but really?

Where's Arian Foster???

Should put Foster on list at 94 overall and make Charles a 92 overall.

I agree.

Im thinking there needs to be an attribute that separates an every down back like Peterson, Foster, Thomas Jones etc, from a spot duty back like Charles, Reggie bush, and Dani Woodhead.

Like if you run Woodhead over a certain amount of times in a game his ratings start to drop and they get hurt easier. It would let their talent stand out without making them easily abused. Durability rating if you will. Cause thats really what separates Charles from Chris Johnson.

Please don't put Reggie Bush in the same category as Charles, I almost puked on my laptop. That is all.

Wow. Foster is not in the top 5. I'm a little surprised by that. I, at least would've expected a tie for the 4th or 5th spot.
 
# 13 ANDROMADA 1 @ 08/05/11 04:44 PM
Um, Deangelo where are you???

Michael Turner??
 
# 14 Kanesville @ 08/05/11 05:17 PM
The overinflation of ratings is getting ridiculous.
 
# 15 Chrisksaint @ 08/05/11 05:35 PM
Solid list that I agree with for once

Regarding Foster, he was great for one season. He's prolly rated decent, but I don't think he's top 5 material at this exact moment. These all change week to week so if he's good this season he'll get there

he was not rated that high last year, and his skills are unfortunately diminishing
 
# 17 mrclutch @ 08/05/11 05:50 PM
I think we'll see Stephen Jackson decline this year. Even based on history I this he's a little high. Pretty sure Foster will catch him after a couple updates.
 
# 18 Aggies7 @ 08/05/11 05:53 PM
I'm a little shocked that Charles is that high.

But overall looks good.
 
# 19 BleacherBum2310 @ 08/05/11 05:54 PM
No Problems with this list. Looks pretty accurate.

I understand your hesitation to give Foster too much praise seeing as it was only one season, but it was an OUTSTANDING one season. I mean this dude came outta nowhere....and I'm not even a Texans fan.
