"Notes: The madden team has stressed that the player ratings have been adjusted to meet a grade school systems...which i like..if you are average for the NFL you will be a 70. If you are good you will be an 80, and if you are great you will be a 90..."
"I like that, it will make a bigger difference between the haves and have-nots though. ...Now, in years past 84 speed wouldn't have gotten you out of the back field, but when you look around the other teams and see the speeds of LB's and DE's it works..."
Take a look at the offensive line (minus Jansen)... Also- catching ability of our WRs... the D doesn't look like it would be the 4th best D in the league.
