The Cardinals may have lost their last game, but that doesn't hurt the team in the eyes of Madden. The only changes to player ratings were increases this week, along with a couple of players being added and a jersey number that was finally changed.
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.For the increases, Jeff King continues to shoot up with his unexpected solid play as a receiving Tight End, going up from 72 to 74 overall, and he was a 69 going into the season.
Boosts were also given to Dan Williams, Beanie Wells, and A.J. Jefferson. Big Dan is now a 75, Beanie is at 78, and A.J. has gone from 66 to 71 after his solid play over the first two weeks. No word on if he is moved into the starting lineup though, in the game Richard Marshall who has also played well over the first two weeks is also listed as a starter alongside Patrick Peterson.
Also, Crezdon Butler has been moved to the Injured Reserve list. Jaymar Johnson (WR), Mark LeGree (S), and Ronald Talley were added to the roster. Ryan Williams also finally had his number changed from 32 to 34.
I am surprised there were no changes to Kevin Kolbs rating, but I guess that since he is rated 84 overall in the game he is playing as well as they thought he would going into the season and it will take some more really big games for him to get a boost to his rating.
Here is the full list of changes, and feel free to leave your comments after the jump.
