The Patriots are going to be unstoppable in this game! basically all their TE's and WR's are in the high 80's and high 90's

You know, I have to say...I love how highly Vernon Davis is rated this year; however, I don't know how EA could possible mark him as a non-clutch player.

In player traits, under Vernon Davis' profile, clutch is selected as "no." I would argue that Davis is among the most clutch pass catchers, regardless of position, in the entire league.

Very, very poor form, EA.

Welker is so overrated, 99 route running yet he can only run simple routes. And a 98 catch yet he's average at catching the deep ball. EA needs to put in short, mid , and deep catching ratings. It's a big difference to catching a slant compared to a 15 yard out or a fly route.

Glad to see Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson get some love.

Just looking at route running alone does anyone see anything wrong here with the players I have in the list?

C.Johnson RR 95
W.Welker RR 99
H.Nicks RR 92
Vicor Cruz RR 90
Jason Whitten RR 93
A.Gates RR 88

I'm personally fixated on this ability of players. I study this ability and admire it tremendously. When I watch a game I always look at how a receiver will execute running his route.

When I look at the following these players do not really distribute great route running ability but due to their strength deceptive speed or speed, and awareness of coverage they know how to get open.

Calvin Johnson, Hakeem Nicks, and Jason Whitten.

While these individuals distribute great route running.

Wes Welker, Victor Cruz, and Antonio Gates.

According to the ratings the order for these particular players RR is

1. Wes Welker RR 99
2. Calvin Johnson RR 95
3. Jason Whitten RR 93
4. Hakeem Nicks RR 92
5. Victor Cruz RR 90
6. Antonio gates RR 88

This order is extremely way off. While I would not argue Wes Walker at number 1 I definitely have a problems with the rest.

There is no way Johnson, Nicks or Whitten run a better route than Cruz. It's not even close. Now I just grabbed these players because they are easy to recognize by the masses, but do you agree?

I find route running to be extremely important and wish it was the main factor why a WR would get open in the game over speed. Hopefully next gen Madden will reflect that. Now maybe it does in Madden 13 , and if it does I think it is very important that this rating is distributed properly.

I would have had it this way.

1. Welker 99
2. Cruz 97
3. Gates 94
4. Nicks 90
5. Johnson 90
6. Whitten 88

I have watched these players in particular since they get a ton of TV time, and Whitten has always amazed me on how he gets open. He route running is so vanilla, but his speed is deceptive and he is very smart in zone coverage, but Gates can run a route. He executes a double move nicely. Victor at times hits you with a variation of moves, and even makes defenders fall when covering him.

I'm really baffled how they came up with these RR ratings for these players.

no offense, but the amount of dropped balls from the rams last year was hard to watch

Thanks to the dude who posted the chiefs wr ovr rating chiefs wr core looks better then yes past Baldwin
2 points better then last season still sucks that Donny Moore continues to underrate Steve Breaston and boss for like 3 years now both started the year at same overall seems,like,pure laziness from Donny moore does this clown even watch football IM not saying breaston should get a big boost but he better then a 79 ovr I would not go higher then an 83 ovr right now but that's where Breaston should be rated same with boss no higher then an 83 right now but both are vary underrated Breaston is hands of glue should have like 92 catching 87 route running and higher awarness 93 speed vary underrated guy career per catch avg is 15.5 how can he not steady have.83 rating big play guy catches everything hardly drops a pass a vary good route runner but gets snubbed go figure someone at at ea needs to either get on to Donny or fire him go chiefs

Just looking at the overalls for Washington. I think the gap between Josh Morgan and Leonard Hankerson is to big. Either lower Morgan's OVR or raise Hankerson's or both. But I don't think there is that big a difference between them.
 
# 14 bucknut88 @ 08/17/12 01:21 PM
Not a huge deal but I think AJ Green should be a little faster than 89. He's deceptively fast. Maybe like a 91 or 92. Like I said, not a big deal but just an observation.
 
# 15 Bengals28 @ 08/17/12 01:25 PM
Gresham at 81 is pretty sad. Some of the guys they have ahead of him is ridiculous.
 
# 16 Nerox23 @ 08/17/12 01:28 PM
I really dont know what to say about DeSean Jackson ratings. I just dont understand why 98 speed and his awareness so low. But why am i so surprised, They have Tebow's higher then Vick's -_-
 
# 17 jwhezzy2003 @ 08/17/12 01:31 PM
danny coale cowboys 94 speed...
james hanna 89 speed and 90 acceleration oh yeah he is a 6'4 TE

if only the oline can hold up
Tony Romo 90 deep ball accuracy.
We already had dez 90 speed, 95 acc, 96 agility, 97 spec, 94 catch.
Miles and his 93 speed, 90 catch

I agree. 91 or 92 would look good on him. He beats alot of people deep. He is almost Moss like tracking Deep balls.

I have to admit i thought he was going to be a bust but boy has he changed my mine. He is a beast.
Dalton to Green is going to be fun to watch.

A few problems with this list. Baldwin is too low at 74. He should be high 70s based on the rating scale that EA uses. He got better as the season went on last year and will start this season.

I'd like to see Moeaki a bit higher, but I know he didn't play last year so I understand why he didn't get a higher rating.

Why is Gafford, the LS, so high? All the other LS are in the 40s and 50s and he's a 66.

Not being able to edit ratings is really going to frustrate me this year.

Marcedes Lewis- 84
Laurent Robinson- 83
Justin Blackmon- 80

It's been a long long time since I have seen three Jacksonville receivers rated in the 80's (well three counting Lewis who does more dropping than actual receiving)

Blackmon only has 88 speed though.. I wonder if that is going to cripple him in this game. I am sure he is a little faster.
