  1. #4-10 all seem high lol. Maybe we're seeing a swing back on the ratings spread to overrate guys again. I am an Eagles fan and even I wouldn't rate Goedert above the 78-80 range.

    He only had 500 yds and 3 TDs last year... I don't see how that justifies mid 80's. Unless they're going back to the old ratings system where average starters are rated in the mid 80's, bench players in the 70's, etc... For a year or two though they did a great job of spreading the ratings out.

    They are probably assuming a big leap with the lower role of Ertz.

    CMac who played 3 games in 2020 rated higher than Henry who rushed for 2,000 yards is just rough lol.

    Swami and Equipt Guru have been pounding it pretty hard the last few days that injuries are not considered a part of the ratings, it's based on performances on the field only.
    As much as I am a homer for Tonyan, Swami explained his rating is lower because he isn't a good blocker and his route routing isn't good.
    Good enough for me.
    More from Swami on Henry
    Henry has 9 fumbles the past two seasons (still 94 carry due to carry numbers)
    - He doesn't face more stacked boxes than other top players (or greater blocker disadvantage)
    - He was second in yards after contact per attempt (behind Chubb)
    - 13th in MT forced/A
    - Henry's agility/change of direction hurt his OVR for obvious reasons.
    - He is a one track runner (only 10% of his carries change in point of attack, which is 48th among RBs) which speaks to his excellent blocking.
    - He offers nothing in the receiving game

    I have no problem with CMac at 97 but Henry deserves to be elevated above that. I also have no idea at all how CMac misses nearly the entire year with multiple injuries and ends up with a 96 injury rating? At some point missing an entire season should drop you down.

    I am afraid until they change their thinking, injuries won't be a factor for ratings.
    Swami gave a pretty detailed explanation why they feel CMac is a smidge higher on the field vs Henry.

    Injuries should at least affect the Injury rating though. He was 96 for launch of M21 then he misses 13 games and he is a 96 again?

    Agree with that.
    People caught up on OVR as usual. When playing the game will players perform stylistically like they should or not. I love how Swami calmly breaks everything down and folks just go, "NOPE, these 3 stats and my feelings are the real truth".

    Breaking down stats is the way it should be, BUT, being able to be on the field is probably the biggest part of football.
    Madden needs to incorporate Injury Rating way more, especially for Franchise players. I wouldn't disagree at all about CMAC being a better all around RB than Henry...but I'd rather have Henry knowing he will be on the field every Sunday, almost every down.
    Madden has to fix the Injury/Durability Rating for it to be more accurate. If you're going to do Ratings based on true Stats, then you have to do Injury Rating based on how healthy the player was the previous season.
    But if you had 1 year where a RB should start at #1, or a 99 rating, you'd think it be when he just had a 2K year.

    I don't understand how is CM is rate better than Henry, Chubb & Cook.. give me some of what ur smoking.*

    The explanation is in post #7.
    LOL Swami:
    People are going to LOVE the QB rankings, I can already tell.
    They have a methodology and Swami articulates each decision well, but of course that doesn't matter to most of the folks who are put out.
    My only issue with the ratings is when they have a player rated much higher than another player on the same team at the same position, but the lower rated player ends up being the clear winner for playing time or as a starter at the position and they choose not to reevaluate the two players factoring in the teams evaluation into the equation.
    Teams aren't infallible of course, but I feel like they should give their decision making a little more weight than they do.
    Even though a lot of other players at other positions who are one dimensional but just really really good at that one thing don't seem to suffer from a rating limit like Henry does, and let's not pretend if Henry was on the Cowboys racking up a 2000y season and two back to back rushing titles he wouldn't be 99, the OVR isn't really a big deal. I just hope he is as fast to use as he is in real life, where he often outruns DBs after getting to his top speed.
    So Jalen Ramsey INJ rating is an 86... he has missed 6 games in 5 years and 4 of those were from a holdout with the Jags. So that's 2 games missed in 5 years through injury and that = an 86 INJ rating.
    Meanwhile CMac has a 96 INJ rating after missing 13 games in 2020 alone with multiple injuries.
    It's a small thing to get hung up on but there seems to be no method to it and injuries are a huge part of the immersion in franchise.

    Lol at least we do have the option to change Ratings ourselves, imagine if we didn't?
    I didn't get to try the Beta, but everything I've read, and especially Armor's enthusiasm for 22, has me ready for it.
    I may just do a deep dive in to changing ratings myself. CMAC having a 96 INJ Rating is just a no go for me. I don't even get the justification for that.

    For whatever reason, excepting DL they seem to be rating defenders lower than their offensive counterparts. Not even 10 safeties in the NFL rated over 90, for example.

    If I'm not mistaken only WR has had at least 10 players over 90 so far.

    The average NFL snap is 3wr vs Nickel, so 3wr vs 5 DBs. So we're talking about 96 "starting" wideouts and a minimum of 10 guys over 90+ vs 160 "starting" DBs (safety and corner) and 14 guys over 90+. So at the top end WRs already have the ratings edge, and that assumes an even distribution below it (which I doubt). I imagine the spread would get bigger when you start comparing #2 wideouts vs #2 DBs.
