With there not being much news about the Cards I started looking at some of the other stories from fellow SB sites and came across the Broncos blog Mile High Report which had a story on the 2010 player ratings for Madden NFL. It got me curious on what the Cards ratings are on the game and so I went and looked them up and got some mixed feelings on the them.
With a team that went to the Super Bowl and through out the playoffs played awesome I expected to see a lot of respect for them. Was actually excited to see what kind of respect they would get on Madden because lets face it they haven't really gotten a lot of it from the game in the past and who can blame them we did not win games. Well we finally started winning games and were the 2nd best team this past season in the NFL and I figured, finally some respect and in some ways we did but several of our players did not.
Looking at the evaluation of talent on our team by the game creators I would have to disagree with that evaluation and I bet most of you will too. Sure we are not one of the worst teams on the game anymore in fact we cracked the top ten at 8 and saying that we should be 5 or 6 is not really that big of a difference but the rating that some of the player got were kind of troubling. Player like Steve Breaston, Karlos Dansby, Neil Rackers, Bryant McFadden, Antrel Rolle, Tim Hightower, and even Chris Wells got the shaft on their rating.
Neil Rackers has had the same rating of 81 the past few years but I thought he played very good last year and would warrant a higher rating. Wells has not played yet and it is understandable that he got a rating of 79 because of it but from video I have seen of him this guy is a beast and definitely should be mid 80s. Breaston is probably the biggest one that stumps me as he just got a rating of 79. The guy has over 1000 yards receiving as a 3rd receiver and all he gets is a 79? He is probably the most underrated player on our team based on the ratings. As for the others, well you can judge for yourself and state you oppion on the rating posted below.
