Tamme's a bit high. I don't think he's just one point worse than Gronkowski. Maybe a 79 for Tamme?

Santi is a 70 and he's done what in the NFL?

Blair White deserves low 70s as well.

Colts ratings aren't good, but there is one problem that stands out form the rest. Our 2nd round pick, OG Ben Ijalana, was completely left off the game. This is inexcusable to leave a 2nd round pick off the game.

It's about freakin time to see the Colts anywhere near Madden '12. I find it amazing that there hasn't been not one single madden vid with the Colts.

I don't see how Tamme Time and Garcon are rated higher than Austin Collie. I can't wait for the season to progress because I think Jerraud Powers could make the Pro Bowl. Yea I said it lol.

Well Garcon has put up better numbers than Collie (granted he's also played in more games), and Tamme is a completely different position. He did put up good numbers last year though.

It's all good, Collie's ratings are only going to go up.

Ryans does need to be a little faster, maybe an 80.

I'm not sure why Andre dropped in his rating either.
Mario should be listed as an end regardless of scheme.
Schaub needs better deep throwing, afterall rookie Cam Mewton is 85. No way that rook throws better than Schaub out the gate.

Why did the best receiver in the league drop? Instead of dropping him 1 overall rating it should have been raised. Best receiver in the league should be a 99.

Uhhh... Clint Session is no longer on the Colts... And where is Ernie Simms?... They need serious roster updates already.

Oh and how does Freeney have more strength than Mathis?

I do like seeing some halfway decent corners on the Colts as well. Definitely something to work with in Franchise mode.

Pretty sure these were done before most of the cuts/moves.

Problems I have with the Colts ratings, and I'm doing my best not to be a homer here.

-Collie Should be better than Garcon
-Brown though he hasn't been great, should be a 75
-I'd say Saturday is a bit over rated, put him around a 90? He's getting older.
-Castonzo should be a 79, I know he's a rook but I think a 79 would be fair.
-Where is Ijalana?
-Angerer and Connor are under rated, badly
-McAfee is under rated, should at least be an 80, his kick power in camp has been unreal.
-Muir is rated higher than Antonio Johnson
-Powers should be an 85
-Francisco (though he is no longer here) being within 3 points of Bullitt is a joke. I'd say bump Melvin up to a 81.


Anybody agree with me?

Yeah Andre speed is underrated. He should be a at least a 97. Afterall he did run a 4.35 at the combine. Sure its been some years btu he is a wr NOT a running back. Jamaal Charles ran a 4.4 but gets a 98 rating in speed. Where is the logic in that? At least make the speeds match like they should. Some guys get rated too fast and some too slow. Ben Tate should be a little faster too. his speed should be about 90.

Schaub is not a great deep ball thrower, he has a noodle for an arm. Go watch Andre's highlight real and watch how many times he literally has to stop running and wait for the ball to come down.

Most of the inaccurate ratings I see are middle of the pack players that maybe not everyone knows about. It's like Donnie just takes a guess and goes with it on players he doesn't know about.
Noodle arm huh, Um okay..... There IS something wrong with a 290 pound All pro defensive end suddenly morphing into a linebacker. He will be playing Pass rusher you can label that whatever you want but his rating should stay over 95 overall regardless of where Wade decides to put him. He is NOT Demarcus Ware. I wonder how long this Wade experiment lasts anyways....

Considering all but one of your comments were a bumb up in OVR, i'd say you didn't suppress the homer-ism enough lol.

The thing I don't get is how Dallas Clark (96 OVR) and Antonio Gates (99 OVR) are rated so high and TE's like Heath Miller (85 OVR) and Owen Daniels (86 OVR) or so far behind.
Miller is easily in the top 3 blocking TE's in the NFL and has great hands. He will never put up the stats of Clark and Gates due to the system run in Pittsburgh, but come on.

arian, andre, and jacoby should all be faster
kevin walter should at least be around a 83
chris myers should be in 80's
whether or not mario is categorized as lb or de he should still be around a 95 ovr
demico ryans should be faster
everything else looks fine im eager to see how this defense progresses throughout the season being coached by wade phillips
