Rodgers bumped up to a 99 overall which I don't totally disagree with, however how can he only bump Bree's up to a 97? Donnie must be a huge Greenbay fan....

im a skinsfan but im not sure how he gives reed doughty a boost when he played horribly

Some of the bumps to overalls are definitely suspect. Pasta Padre pointed out the Cowboys who lost actually received the biggest benefit in ratings changes with Greenbay coming in second.

I think donny just watches sports center and looks at stats. I think he does a pretty good job with the big name players though

Grrr, Whats danny moore problem with practice squad roster players. safety Andrew Sendejo is still on the jets team as a practice squad player. hope the guy doesn't get removed from the game. All in all it looks like a good update to me.

Wish he would have bumped Thomas Davis up to an A potential for Carolina. He was always an A potential until he got hurt, and he's played pretty well so far.

Just managed to get hold of the 2nd update, the one that came just before cut day that is loaded with players. Going to check the latest update tomorrow and if it's still in bad shape in terms of players that have been taken out/there's still a ridiculous amount missing, I'm skipping the updates this year and will be spending some serious time putting together rosters from that pre-cut update. Never been one to trash Donny but last weeks update was kind of ridiculous, really poor job.

How did Chris Houston get a decreased rating? He's the leading tackler and he had a pick.

It's amazing that he gave Tate a 4 points boost, but still can't seem to grasp the concept his number is 44!

Please bring up Ray Rice's speed. no defender should be able to catch him in open field.

Love the updates to my Ravens... but why did Tyrod Taylor get an increase? He didn't do anything
 
# 12 mkharsh33 @ 09/15/11 10:46 PM
yet another reason i'm glad i traded this game in...

I'm beyond exasperated with the ridiculous decisions being made with regards to rosters in Madden.

I mean, of all players to get a decrease, why isn't it Tony Romo? He singlehandedly cost his team a game, including a 14 point lead.

I don't agree with changing anyone's ratings, except for ones he obviously had wrong in the first place (e.g Randall Cobb's speed) but if you are going to make such wholesale changes to the rosters and decrease players who played well, WHY oh WHY isn't Romo decreased?

Firstly, these updates are the most stupid thing to happen to Madden.
Ratings and rankings of players are based on consistency, and to boost and lower players after 1 game is just an indication of poor basic understanding of the sport.

Secondly, what happened to hot streaks? I mean, they were supposed to act as an in game mechanism that are triggered after a good and bad game. Now why does Cam get a 4 point boost, when he could just be put on a hot streak?

I'm sorry but there seems to be a clear example of a lack of common sense or rudimentary football IQ over at EA Tiburon, especially with regards to these rosters.

Furthermore, why are FS and SS being switched over every week? It's pretty apparent OJ Atogwe has always been a FS, and Laron Landry is clearly a better fit for SS. Why were they swapped?
Why is Quintin Mikell now a FS?

Safeties roam around the field and swap sides all the time. Just leave them be.
It's tinkering for the sake of it, to make it appear something is actually being done when in fact, nothing of use comes out of these changes.


Weekly roster updates should reflect injuries (and please, make sure your information is correct, Robert Quinn is not injured at all, he was only deactivated vs the Eagles because he wasn't ready) and signings, as well as equipment, numbers and appearance.

Should there be any desire to update ratings? They should only be done onc every 6 weeks, to actually reflect a body of play, instead of one good performance.

Please, is there any way we can make EA understand that this one man system or roster control is failing MISERABLY???????

this why i never download roster updates . its like DM never watches football .also they shoulds be working on patches and tuners

Why did Braylon Edwards get a ratings decrease? We were playing very conservative that involved very little passing. Plus he drew a Pass Interference call and caught everything that came his way. Yet he gets a 1 point decrease -__-

And why hasn't he changed Josh Morgan's name to Joshua? He wished to be called Joshua back in preseason but yet he changed Carnell Williams name back to Cadillac just because Steven Jackson is out?

To all the haters out there STFU. Just be happy that we get roster updates every week back in the old day we did not have roster updates and we had to use what roster came out of the box and if i remember correctly you couldn't even create a player in Madden 64 on the Nintendo 64. I hope all this hate danny moore is receiving makes him stop doing updates one of these day and he comes out to say that he'll never do another free roster update again for now on you'll have to pay EA 14.99 for a roster update every week. What would you guys do then?

@ mkharsh33 Lol I hope you enjoyed getting ripped off by gamestop. I never trade in any of my games hack i still have Duke Nukem forever and we all know how bad Duke suxed

True, we should be thankful that he spends so much time just changing ratings each week and not working on actually getting the rosters fully right.

We have all we need to do rosters ourselves, and I'm sure most people would be happy to go without updates if EA let sharing rosters and save files easier.

Plus, weekly updates are a joke because Cam gets bumped to 81 for a great game, but what if he stinks it up next week or lights it up again? Maybe if the Czar was "good enough to be a scout," like guys at EA have said, why doesn't he come out with ratings that don't have players jumping 4+ OVR weekly.

The "haters" spiel has become the quickest and easiest way to dismiss any kind of logical or factual criticism.
