Madden NFL 20 Ratings: Colts Veterans

Recommended Posts

Also, for those curious, the Colts are rated an 86 OVR as a team.

 

7th best in the game, and the offense (91) is tied with the Pats for 2nd best in the game, behind only the Saints (92).

Jack Doyle I would downgrade from 86 to 82.

Darius Leonard upgrade from 84 to 88.

Jabaal Sheard upgrade from 82 to 84.

Pierre Desir and Kenny Moore more like 81-84, instead of 79 and 80.

 

Denico Autry at 76 is a joke, last year had him at 80, what did he do to lose the ratings?

Rigo Sanchez at 74 is a joke.

Mark Glowinski should be 78 or so, not 74.

Jacoby Brisset at 71 is a joke.

Anthony Walker at 69 is a joke, minimum 75.

Le'Raven Clark at 56 is a joke, if he was that bad, we would have a highlight reel of his bad moves *cough* Austin Howard *cough*

they have our kickers pretty low for some reason. they were good last year but madden rated them 74 and 78?  

 

Autry was  shafted too, no way he should be below geathers 

 

Nelson and Leonard were better than those ratings too, but thats a nit pick

Some of those ratings don't make sense.

 

How did Nelson not improve?

 

How did Leonard drop?

 

How did Glow drop 4 points?

 

How did Walker drop 7?

 

I love the Madden games, they are still fun to play, but their ratings cause me to scratch my head a lot of times.

To all those wondering about the players who dropped in ratings, the Madden team mentioned that they were "expanding" their rating system.  Where it pretty much used to be 99 to 60 (ish), it'll now be 99 to 30 (ish).

 

I'm not saying our LBs aren't rated lower than they should be, but there will be plenty of teams with starters in the 60s this year.

So many questions...

 

How do you know that a game is a "pile of dumpster trash" if you haven't even played it yet?

 

What's the difference between "dumpster trash" and regular trash?

 

Madden has been around since 1988, so how is it "courtesy" of social media?

 

How is social media "all seeing, all knowing"?

 

What are you on, and can I have some?

I understand that the rating system was changed this year and more players will be in the 60-80 range, but I question why Darius Leonard is an 84 OVR when Derwin James is 87 OVR and Leighton Vander Esch is 86 OVR.  I think James and LVE are both phenomenal young defensive stars, but they should not be higher than Leonard after Leonard wins DROY.  They should all be at 87 or Leonard at 87 and those two at 86 OVR.

Were you trying to insult Madden and social media in the same post?  Like there's some sort of correlation?

 

I've never seen someone whose posts require this much explanation.  haha

they have a new system where there’s a rating gap between the best and worst players. so it’s a revamping of logic where a players 19 rating isn’t equal to a 20 rating.

 

if yu play madden yu would knw this 

 

glow dropping 4 rating points isn’t a sign he declined, it’s a recalibration to put him into perspective w the entire league. 

 

i do do have a problem w LVE being ratted higher than the DROY tho

Thanks for the explanation.  I do play Madden with my kid, I don't research it and keep up with their grading system outside of what I see here.

 

That being said, their ratings still leave me scratching my head and have very little to do with a players ability.  And if they recalibrate to put him into perspective then that means their system before was flawed, which also means there is a good chance their current system is flawed which means the numbers don't make much sense.

It's all subjective.  Quenton Nelson is probably the best guard in the NFL, but he barely cracks the top-10 guards according to Madden...  :dunno:

You have some serious issues my friend.  If you want to believe Madden ratings are gospel and above reproach then by all means be my guest.  Personally, I will continue to think for myself.  Flaws and all.

Mahomes has only played one season, yet he's already the best QB in the game with a 97 rating.  Barkley was also a rookie, yet he's the #5 RB with a rating of 91.

 

While Nelson was voted to the Pro Bowl and All-Pro, but is like G #8 with a rating of 87, behind guys like Ali Marpet and Kevin Zeitler...

 

How is that consistent?  Again, it's all subjective according to EA game developers.

qbs and rbs have tangible abilities yu can see throughout a game (speed, throw power, accuracy, elusiveness)

 

Mahomes had one of the best seasons All Time and Barkely literally does everything yu can do as a rb as good or better than his piers. yu can see it, it flashes 

 

Nelson is a guard, madden is skill position driven. it’s common sense. ppl don’t look en the trenches and say this lineman’s technique is AMAZING. yu want him rated highly bc he is a colt and yu want what yu see reflected i get it. 

 

As a guard he has to consistently show he is improving and maintain his elite level. everything isn’t created equal why yu can’t grasp this fact idk

then why does madden also include attributes such as run blocking power, pass blocking power, run blocking footwork, pass blocking footwork, impact blocking, etc?

True.  I'm a super-homer.  haha  Because of that, I've always felt like EA slights Colts players every year, except for maybe a handful of players (mainly Manning).

 

I was expecting Nelson and Leonard to be at least 90 OVR after being voted All-Pro.  I figured if Mahomes and Barkley are in the conversation for top-5 at their position, then our two guys should be too.

 

Especially after the season they had.  I thought Leonard had a great all-time season for a LB.  And Nelson was smothering elite defenders from Geno Atkins in week 1 to Clowney and Watt at the end of the season.  :dunno:

Madden 20 at launch ratings 

 

Quenton Nelson

82 awr 

97 strength 

65 speed 

86 pb 

88 rb 

85 rbf 

82 rbf 

88 lbk 

 

Zack Martin ‘20 

93 awr 

93 strength      

70 speed 

pb 95 

rb 97 

pbf 92 

rbf 95 

lbk 94 

 

All the numbers are thresholds. Martin is an established lineman that has proven his ability to earn and maintain these numbers. As Nelson progresses and establishes his name the ratings will reflect that. OLineman isn’t a glamour position. 

 

i’m already speaking too much about what is really common sense. Martin was rated a 78ovr (83rb/84pb/89str) as a rookie and through his play combined w league wide recognition earned a a current 96 ovr. it comes w time due to the position.

Darius being rated under LVE is my only issue. LVE should only have strength over Darius that’s it. but don’t get me wrong LVE is 6’4” 255lbs he’s good

madden tends to under rate rookies and young players, and its been that way forever. 

 

i dont think they should have to "establish" themselves when its a year to year game and these guys are playing great right now but thats how it is.  awareness is almost irrelevant for guards in madden too, doesnt make them any more likely to block the right guy.

well, all of the skills will increase a player's overall, but some will increase the overall quicker than others.  awareness does usually have the biggest impact on a player's overall rating though.  also, i don't think you're using the word "threshold" correctly.

    • I rewatched the game as I thought this would be pretty strange as well.  He did not play in the fourth except for his usual special teams slot.     I was confused as well by those who say he had a bad game.  He gave up one completion where he got turned around.  Other than that he was glued to his man as usual.    I think he's still having trouble living down his reputation from his rookie year. 
    • depth wise, S, OL, and iDL are my biggest concerns. if folks were grading positions ( starters and depth), i'd be surprised if many graded safety in the top half.  outside of Hooker, lots of questions, at least to me. i definitely don't agree with Venturi. ESPN doesn't either. Hopefully the starters stay healthy, and Willis grows into a stud.
    • lol... you wrote a novel. while i didn't read it all, i did skim. the mock draft stuff, it wasn't a poll. it was a well defined systemic grading. if you're mom can do well on the 1st round, why didn't your favorite guys? lol. on the wide receiver study, it was laughable. no defined parameters, no comparative cross position stats, etc.. not even Busch league stuff.  like i said, legend in your own mind.   in terms of who can dish it out, but can't take it, look at your reaction above to a "sad".... what a rant/tantrum.....  self awareness is obviously not your strongest trait. feel free to "crush" me anytime... gives me a good laugh.
    • very astute observations!!
    • You live your life like the Coyote chasing the Road Runner....    and you keep running into the mountain side,  or running off the cliff....     OK....    you're not going to change....   So, I'll take apart your nonsense --- again.    This will be the longest post I've ever made,  trying to answer all your nonsense.    Doubt you'll read it.    But here it comes....     Of course we know if Luck's injury, whatever it is,  ISN'T minor.   What minor injury do you know lasts four months?    He barely participated in any off-season program.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    The Colts have NEVER, EVER called it minor.   Not once.  The only thing they've said is he hopes to be back by certain deadlines,  and he's missed almost every one.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    This paragraph may confuse you.   It's full of common sense and logic.   I don't know how you got the nerve to try to argue that no one knows.   Unbelieveable!   Nope.   No Tantrum from me.   Just pointing ot what should be obvious,  but apparently the obvious isn't obvious to you.     By the way,  while you were giving me a sad on my post to my friend CBE,   do you know who was giving me a "like"?    CBE.    I criticized his post and he still gave me a like.    He know while we may not agree,  he knows I'm not trying to pound him.   I'm  trying to be as honest and factual as I can.    No wonder you can't see for yourself.   What triggered me, was your latest attempt to sound like you know what you're talking about.   You judged Willis on half of the first pre-season game.    That's all you've got.    That's it.   Doesn't even occur to you that that is.....   NOTHING!    Hello?    And you present it like it should be taken seriously,  when it should be laughed at.    Goodness gracious, you want to go back to the media draft comparison?    I was hoping for your sake that you wouldn't.    But since you insist.     Did you ever really look at that poll?   Seriously,  did you look at the four category breakdown?    Did you see what was actually involved?    If you did,  you shouldn't have been crowing about it.    First,  what I care about from guys like Kiper and McShay and Jeremiah and others isn't just the first round.   My  momma can do a decent job on the first round, and she's been dead for nearly 30 years!    I care about their view on ALL ROUNDS.   And your survey was only about the first round.   That's it.   There were four categories.    In three of them,  the leader got no more than 50%.   That's it.   The best person in three of the four categories scored no more than 50 percent.   When the top guy is scoring no more than 50 percent and everyone else is close behind,  then no one really knows anything.    And the one category that the winner did well in --- one category --- he scored in the 90's.   And everyone else was right behind him.    So, most everyone did well in ONE OUT OF THE FOUR categories.   Big stinking deal.    I tried to tell you this silly survey didn't support what you believed but you wouldn't listen.   No surprise there.  All you cared about the results.   The fatal flaw.     Finally,  without a single fact,  you offered this opinion in that post.    I remember it like it was yesterday,  that your new age guys were doing a better job than the more traditional scouts.   Based on one poll.   One poll of one round.    And you said the older guys like Kiper and company were resting on their laurels and not working as hard.   Nope, the old guys were covering all seven rounds.    Most of your guys,  covering one round.   You have no facts to support that, but that's your view.    When logic and common sense would tell you that the guys I prefer make a ton more money and have their reputation at stake.    They have more to lose.    There's no way they're resting on anything.    But you'll say ANYTHING to try and prove a point.   There's no argument you won't twist to try to win an argument, no matter how foolish the argument is.   I've told you publicly and privately,  you're not interested in honest debate.   You're the least honest poster here.  You're only interested in winning and you'll do anything, say anything to do that.      As to the WR study.    You got crushed.   I'm talking about a bank safe fell on you and your response was to talk about cherry picking stats.    Either English is a second language or you don't know the meaning of the words.     I made two links for you.    One was almost identical to yours.    Yours covered 25 years dating back to a time when passing rules were dramatically different so comparing a receiver from 1990 to one from 2018 was silly.   We're playig a different game now.    My first link covered 20 years from 1995 to 2014 .   There was great over-lap in the two studies.  But the conclusions were entirely different.   The only reason I used it was your post said roughly 60% percent of 1st Round WR's were successes.    Mine said roughly 40%.   Guess which one you preferred?    Surprise!   Then the second link was one of my own making.    I listed every 1st round WR since Luck came into the league in 2012.  That's 7 years.   The last 7 years.   I put into bold each 1st Round WR who was clearly a success.   It came to 41%.   It also showed how few WR's have been taken in the last few drafts.   That's the NFL talking, in case you weren't paying attention.    You didn't dispute one WR.    Not one.   But you called it cherry picking.   Clearly you don't know how to use that expression correctly.    And now you throw out a list of criteria as if you're making the rules here.   Here's another free tip.   You're not.   Never have.   I'm not surprised you don't recognize the facts I put into posts.   You don't use them.   You're all about the opinion.   Most posters here are.   Because that means every single poster can simply say.....    "I'm entitled to my opinion."    Yes, they are.   Everyone is,  even you, who has no need for facts.    But what you're not entitled to is your own facts.    Just like you stated Funchess was a terrible signing based on your facts,  and it never even occured to you that Ballard and Reich had other facts that showed DF could be useful to us.    You actually thought you knew more than they did?!?    Again, unbelieveable.   You had no facts to support your nonsense about Reich being a poor play caller.   You had one game.   And I called you on it.   You've been doing a very bad back-peddle ever since,  but that's your view, with no facts to support it.   In fact all the facts support the exact opposite view.   Yet, you still try to claim victory.   It's so intellectually dishonest that it's nauseating.   And so I observed,  that with almost nothing to base it on,  you thought Willis has inconsistancies.    Thanks, Capt. Obvious.    Tomorrow will likely be sunny during the day,  turning to widely scattered darkness at night.    Anymore obvious insights?   Funny, how you now publicly call for me to ignore your posts,  when a few days ago,  in a thread I was barely even in,  you took a completely uncalled for shot at me.    Or does the phrase "legend in his own mind" not mean anything to you?      Bottom line....    you can dish it out,  especially when you think no one is looking.....   but you can't take it.   Glass ego.   I call a fraud a fraud.
