Madden NFL 12: Arizona Cardinals Week Eight Roster

After another loss for the Cardinals, this one to the Steelers, a bunch of ratings went down again for the team.

Today, EA Sports released the ratings that will be available online tomorrow morning for those of of who own the game to download. We will take a quick look at some of the changes after the jump.

First, lets look at the positive ratings just so we can start off with good stuff. Daryl Washington, Alfonso Smith, Sam Acho, and (for some reason) Levi Brown all saw slight increases to their ratings.

Now on the other side, Chester Taylor (for being unable to see the field since the Seattle game), A.J. Jefferson, Stewart Bradley, Kevin Kolb, Adrian Wilson, and Larry Fitzgerald (why?) all saw slight decreases.

I really don't get why Larry's rating went down. He is still in the top 10 for receiving yards this year, and he is on pace for over 1,300 yards this season. I just don't see how four catches for 78 yards is enough to drop his rating, he is constantly double covered, and when the ball gets close enough to his hands he catches it.

Also, there are a couple of depth chart changes, with Alfonso Smith moving up because of the Beanie injury, and Doucet taking over Roberts' spot.

Here is the list showing all of the ratings changes, and if there is anything you think should be changed in the ratings, tell Donny Moore the guy for EA Sports who handles the ratings changes. This is his Twitter account and he does listen to what fans tell him about who should go up or down each week.
