Random Vikings Madden Note: I was able to get Bollinger up to an 87, but his arm strength was still 81, lol.

Not gunna lie to ya, if T Jack is above 75 the game is flawed imo. I think the Vikings are good team, but I think T Jack is not even remotely decent.

Bollinger progresses quick in that game
I never touched him and he was up to 85 in 3 years

Icon status would go to Hutch, then Kevin ...no one is really deserving beyond that.

And Mike Vick is a dynamic playmaker, who was on the cover of the game
a few years ago. PLUS he has lead his team to the NFC championship in
2 of his first 5 years in the league....you may hate him, but when he's had
a defense he's been pretty good.

No way Jackson is an 80. Last year JP Losman had a 77. It will be around that.

Birk, Winfield, the Williams brothers, and Hutch are the only players who should be above 90.

Udze sucks, shouldn't be over a 75, and Williamson should be around 77.

VikesRule
04-14-2007, 01:49 PM
He shouldn't get an 80 overall (Jackson), but there's no way that Devin Hester should have 100 speed, which he will, so I wouldn't be suprised if Jackson was rated a little high, especially since they usually give most teams their starter in the 80s.

olinemen dont get the icon status and atlanta's defense isnt the ones stopping vick from throwing for the standard benchmark 3,000 yards or completing 60 percent of his passes. even with as terrible as carr has been in houston, he's still met both of those

Yeah, but wasn't he like a 71 last year? They will bump him up a bit, eventhough he hasn't really shown much, but 9 points!?

Jerome Mathis should get 101

I wouldnt mind if they leave T Jack where he is, with his speed and arm strength after one camp for a bit of acc he is easy to make unbelievable.

Byrant McKennie should be above 90, Tony Richardson should be close...Darren Sharper too, he didnt have a good year last year but he shoul still be above 90 even if its only 91.

Tough to throw for 3000 when your team runs for 3000
Your hatred blinds you from seeing that Vick is a decent starter.

decent starter doesnt mean he should be over a 90, yet he constantly is. ej henderson is a decent starter, does that mean he should be over a 90? vick is a great athlete, that's it. he's got a strong arm, but cant read defenses and cant consistently put the ball where he needs to. michael vick is the most overrated player in the nfl.



plus that 3000 yards rushing really got them pretty far in the playoffs didnt it? oh wait, my bad. their original draft spot was only a few farther down than us.

hahahaha...you're trying to justify the performance on the field as it translates to a VIDEO GAME ?? wow, get out and enjoy the day.

Severe Punishment
04-15-2007, 01:39 PM
btw, Atlanta has made more playoff trips over the past 5 years than we have. In fact I believe Atlanta (over those 5 years) is one of very few teams to have multiple trips to the playoffs (and have wins there)...while the Vikings are picking 7th in the first round for the 3rd time in 7 years.
Clearly they're a team that's "closer" to achieving a goal.

russie
04-15-2007, 02:59 PM
1. get out and enjoy the day? who's the one that's had close to 1000 posts since february?

2. one of those 7th over all was due in part to a trade

Madden needs a potential rating. Player progression is way too primitive without one.

how does tavarius have high acc. He.. has a strong arm but no acc.

and isn't sharper a fs?

and the vikings aren't a good team. w/ a receiver core like that, they shouldn't be in the nfl.

Crazy_Chris
04-17-2007, 02:36 AM
im guessing he means accuracy in the low to mid 80's... and yea Sharper is a FS but he played the SS position for us last year

04-17-2007, 05:33 AM
You know, at least we arent wasting money on WR when we dont have a QB and vice versa. We could be like the Raiders paying millions for a bunch of guys they cant get the ball to.

Until we get a franchise QB, whats the point of having any decent recievers? Hell, its not like we actually try and pass anyway.

Byrant McKennie
Steve Hutchinson
Matt Birk
Tony Richardson
Pat & Kevin Williams
Darren Sharper
Antione Winfield

they should all be above 90, with E.J Henderson on the verge in the 87-89 area and chester taylor will be on the verge of 90 aswell

Alright now that the draft is over what do you think some of our newest vikes will be rated?

Adrain Peterson will get 85(future star)
Sidney Rice will get 80
Marcus McCauley will get 77
Brian Robison will get 74
Aundrae Allison will get 75
Rufus Alexander will get 73

or even coach?

hmmm Cower gets the cover the steelers sucks and cowher retires. not bad

to coach the purple.

I don't think o-linemen can get icon status in that game.

I agree with Vick being a playmaker. He runs for as many first downs as a lot of teams starting RB's do.

Just looked at the ratings and have to say i am very upset. Our team never gets any love! http://sports.ign.com/madden08/vikings.html

Erasmus = 82 ovr???
Doss = 79!?!
Williamson = 74?!?!
Udeze = 80?!!
TJax = 76 i guess that's expected. but i'm bugged his speed is only 79

Those are my quick gripes.

Whay are you upset about Udeze? He kind of blows.

Yea but everyone only focuses in on the fact he had no sacks this year which is bad but in all reality he is a very good in run support and what a lot of people fail to mention is that he lead this team in Tackles for a loss. . . considering he was at 84 last year i would split the difference and say 82 is a appropriate for now

once again 'Severely Pathetic' joins us again. well, all I can say is your return is not long awaited.

on another note, on your comment about vick, he is an outstanding athelete. I will give you that. probably one of the top 10 all around atheletes in the NFL. HOWEVER, puely as a QB he is a joke. He is is one of the most inconsistant QB's in the league, and has only been able to get by because of his running ability. I know everyone says he has 'changed the qb position for the future' because he is a so called 'dual threat', but to me that is a joke. if you were to take away he running ability, and let him fend for himself as a pure passer (like most of the other qb's in the league), then he would have been booted from the starting role years again. he would just be another 2nd/3rd stringer somewhere and nobody would even know his name.

with that said, that is why I feel he should be utalized better. he could be an explosive specailty position. maybe a WR/HB. put him in the slot and let him roam free. let him return kicks and punts. ANYTHING but be a QB would be better.

The sliders definitely need some adjusting. Seeing as the sharing carries thing doesnt work at all i'm gonna play with the subs so I can start Taylor but get AD a bunch of carries.
