  1. Honestly, I prefer the lower ratings for most of the league because I feel there’s a noticeable talent disparity between players. If we had everyone’s favorite team/player go up then it’s arcade all over again.

    So Brady went up +2(99ovr) because he beat his former team by 2 points and a missed FG at the end.
    These ratings are a joke.

    This is only a temporary "record breaker" boost, like Tucker last week.
    There a much better things to gripe about like Zach Wilson getting no boost, the Diggs thing.

    There are 62 CB's rated higher than Trevon Diggs in Madden right now lol.

    Techinally there's only 54. And if you start a franchise he probably picks up a bunch during the season. By the end of the season he's probably in the top 30-35 which I think is fair for a 2nd year player.

    No, he is temporarily a 99 because he owns the career passing record in the history of the NFL.
    Folks, you can't have it both ways.
    A lot of us complained in the past that Equipt Guru was biased because
    you felt he was giving Cowboy players more increases vs other teams. Now,
    Diggs has 4 Int's and he was rated low starting out the gate and people are complaining
    about that. Ironic #1 By the way, Revis Island had as high as 6 int's in one season.
    Int's don't make a total shutdown corner. They are definitely good at ball hawking.
    Ironic #2- A lot of us complained in the past that all the #'s were too high. Recently, the #'s have leveled off and now folks want higher #'s.

    These roster updates are terrible for Franchise.
    This is manually editing players still, which begs the question, is NG Stats even being used in Madden?

    They would be fine if they would just make sure the teams have their minimum requirements so the computer doesn’t make 800 moves.
    I understand Baker Mayfield’s ratings taking a hit. But we know that he’s Playing injured so wouldn’t it make sense to just make him injured in the game? His ratings would then drop from the injury.
    It is an option to have players play through injury in franchise mode already. Or is there some limitation to them doing this with a roster update?

    This is the kind of trash that is annoying. EquipmentGuru is all about "injuries don't affect ratings" he preached it before the season with tons of dudes. Especially McCaffery. Now McCaffery is hurt and his INJ rating is super high and his ratings have not gone down, but Baker's have.
    The "credibility" of the ratings isn't part of the equation. They proved that there's 0 credibility last year with Crapernick being rated as a top 15 QB. But consistency and legitimate rationale for the ratings would be nice.

    Shock and awe, I say, shock and awe.
    I don't get how you could justify defending his rating after four straight weeks of being a great corner. He's not a shut down corner but no one in the league is, that's how the game is played in modern times. He's shown tenacity, great coverage skills in both man and zone reads and outright has an impact on every game Dallas plays. His rating should reflect a much better player than a 77.
    Who cares if you grind his XP in Franchise and he's an 84 by the end of the first season? You can do that with literally any player in the game and that's not the point.
    I wouldn't argue that he deserves a 92 overall but how is he not in the low to mid 80s by now?

    They won't make a player injured if he's playing and not on IR and they already said that if a player guts it out and plays through an injury and plays poorly they will still lower their rating because of their play. Everyone may hate it, but that's the methodology that they use. I would image that they would deviate from that policy for Brady and a few others though.
    I am all onboard with consistency all across the board with ratings, but I think rationalizing it is up for debate.
    Take for instance, Swami today.
    He was mentioning that whenever Mayfield misses a pass, people are all over it, but when Rodgers misses a pass, he is given a pass.
    It's simple, Rodgers has earned it, Mayfield hasn't, yet.
    Same thing with Diggs. 4 games is a small sample size, let's see if he can keep bringing it for a whole season week in and week out like the one's listed below who have already earned their stripes. To say there aren't any lockdown corners anymore is a bit off. Jalen Ramsey, Marlon Humphrey, Xavien Howard, Jaire Alexander, and Tre'Davious White are all considered lock down corners in the league off the top of my head and there might be more.

    It hasn't been just 4 games though, he was thrown into the fire his rookie year and improved a lot by the end of the year. He finished with 3 interceptions in the second half of the season (reasons why he should have been higher rated out of the box to begin with).
    I don't think anyone wants to see him rated as a 99 or even 92 overall CB but he needs to be rated higher than slightly above a really good rookie that you can draft in Madden. Football is a very fluid sport and it's silly to to say that you have to wait an entire season to change ratings (especially when they do this media release each and every week). Players can and have broken out in every single week of the season, why wouldn't Madden want to reflect that?
    The days of a shut down corner like Revis or Asmougha are over. The rules and offensive schemes make it ridiculously difficult for CBs to always eliminate opposing weapons. Yes, there's obviously better CBs, that's not what I'm saying. Here's a highlight of Ramsey being beat by Metcalf literally last night:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jed6CoQXUUU
    I'm sure you could do that with every CB you listed (including Diggs, I'm not saying he's better than any of those guys) because that's the nature of the modern game.
    Madden wants to embrace weekly updates and temporary super boosts yet can't even recognize when a CB is having a break out season and adjusting his rating accordingly. It's like a microcosm of what's wrong with the game overall.

    I will just quote this part because we could go back and forth on all the other reasons why you feel Diggs should be low to mid 80's.
    The ratings people have stated over the past 4 or 5 years, they will not just bump people that have good games on a week to week basis, they will look at the past 4 games and see if there is consistency of good to great play with a player like Diggs. Over the past 4 games, he did receive a good bump. If Diggs continues to play like he is, I am sure he will be rewarded and his stock will keep rising.
    And, we need to go back to consumers complaining for the last several years about players OVR's being too high across the board. Over the past few years, the ratings have leveled off to a certain extent.
    I see there were some player faces changed in this roster update and I have a question …. Does the guy even look at the players pics to find similar faces ? Lol like why is a dark skin player light skin or a guy with hair just bald

    Ints aren't usually a sign of good DB play. If a guy is a liability in coverage then he gets more passes thrown to his zone or assignment and gets more opportunities for picks. It's why elite corners often have less ints because qbs know to not throw their way because the corner has their guy locked down. You also have to observe the receivers he's played against. Dallas was and is in weak division which makes up a large part of the schedule so he doesn't play against elite talent as often.

    Dallas has played one division game so far. In the past 4 weeks he's matched up against scrubs like Mike Evans, Keenan Allen, and DJ Moore.

    To be fair, Trevon Diggs’ effort against Mike Evans in Week 1 - Evans had very few targets or catches, I don’t remember the exact numbers - is horribly skewed by the Cowboys’ ineptitude covering Antonio Brown that night. In particular, Anthony Brown was getting cooked repeatedly. Chris Godwin also dropped like three kill-shot sure-fire touchdown receptions which would have made that game less close than the final score ultimately indicated. Dallas caught a number of breaks in that game and was lucky to have held the lead at all in the final stretch, honestly (and I’m a Cowboys fan saying that).
    I’m okay with Diggs’ rise in the ratings being slow-rolled a bit. If he keeps up his current level of play for the whole season and offensive coordinators start instructing their offenses to avoid throwing at him, he will get there.
    Honestly, I don’t know if Diggs is or ever will be lock-down good like some people are hyping him up to be right now. I do think he is physical, aggressive, relentless, and opportunistic. He obviously has good hands, and good athleticism for his size. I don’t think he has the short area quickness or long speed to be the next Darrelle Revis, and he stylistically doesn’t play the way Richard Sherman did (prime Sherman was a master at baiting QBs to throw his way). But maybe Diggs can be the next Aqib Talib? Which would still be plenty good.

    I don't even think I can justify an argument against the point that INT's aren't a sign of good DB play. Diggs was literally step for step with Keenan Allen and stole the ball right from his chest. He floated into a zone and read Darnold's eyes perfectly to snatch an INT in zone coverage. He had the wherewithal and ability to react within seconds and grab balls out of thin air against Tampa Bay and Philadelphia.
    I never claimed he was lock down by any means but he's absolutely having a break out year, winning matchups more than he's losing them and has had an impact on every game for Dallas.
    As already stated maybe you need to look at the receivers he's opposed. Some of the top in the game today. He played nose to nose against Keenan Allen and Mike Evans. He dominated one of the most hyped rookie WR's in Devonta Smith. DJ Moore got him a few times but again, hard to shut anybody down in the NFL. I don't buy a "he hasn't played anyone good" argument at all.
    Regarding Eric Stokes, R, CB Packers:
    Per PFF:
    Eric Stokes: 33 targets, 18 catches allowed, 193 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
    Jalen Ramsey: 33 targets, 21 catches allowed, 210 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
    Tre'Davius White: 33 targets, 20 catches allowed, 199 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT
    Not saying Stokes, as a rookie, is the caliber of Ramsey and White, but for a
    rookie, not bad after 5 games and 1 game without Jaire. Stokes is impressing me.
    His Madden rating is 71 and started with a 71 and I have no problem with a slow climb.
    Herbert better get a 90 rating this week.
    Stop penalizing the man for his age. Dude threw for the second most yards for a rookie in history last year and is playing like an MVP lately. He’ll be 99 soon enough but IMO he should be a 93 now.
    Some things never change:
    Swami's account is locked on Twitter, why?
    group of Cowboys fans upset about ratings trying to cancel me
    psst- It's still just a video game folks, not real life matter priorities.
    tru11
    Nah man.
    Others had to proof for seasons to get a boost.
    Lets diggs do it for a full season or 2 before he gets bumped alot.

    He got bumped up by 3 in the WK4 update - he's a 74 now. Unless this week changed anything. Maybe he received another bump, I'm not sure.

    Thanks for the heads up, he is still a 71 in the franchise I am playing.

    Yep, already noted in the thread.
    Honestly a fair rating for Diggs right now would be like an 88. He's been a 99 all season, but I get that the ratings don't really work like that. He was almost at this level towards the end of last year and he started getting picks (even when he was getting burned as a rookie he was right there on his guys hip, a lot of contested catches against him.) Now he's getting everything. Toney burned him once on a zig zag route but I don't even know if he was in man coverage he might have just had the middle of the field. Either way, he's baiting QBs left and right and staying on his receivers. Aikman said that the only true shut down corner he's ever seen is Deion Sanders and that Diggs is close to that level of player. Realistically he should have one step ability and really shutdown as well. 87 acceleration is also insane. CJ Board has the same speed and 93 acceleration and Diggs displayed a second gear on that play that Board just doesn't have. Probably like a 95 acceleration realistically.
    On another note, I wish madden would get some more scans. It's bad how in 2021 multiple players on the same teams have generic faces. Especially when it's key players.
    Jags not getting any updates again.
    Dan Arnold played great, and Shatley and Bartch have both played fantastic.
    Shatley has always been almost as good as Linder. But Madden has him at like 65 OVR. He just only plays Center and is not better than Linder, who is top 5 in the league.
    The Jaguars Oline has played great this year.
    With Shatley and Bartch in at C and RG Robinson just had a 150 yard game against a stacked box.
    Part of why they were rated bad was Bortles and Minshew got themselves sacked all the time.
