Default Player Ratings

I was bored, so you know what, I’m going to do some player ratings. I will rate each player on a scale out of 10, and explain each rating as in depth as I can. You can do so or try to correct me if you want.

QB: Joey Harrington R: 8.0

Analysis: Joey is a player that really understands the game of football, but his ability was just not able to translate to the pro level. He has a decent arm, and puts good accuracy on it most of the time, but like Byron, struggles releasing the ball under pressure.

Byron Leftwich R: 7.8

Analysis: Has an absolute gun for an arm, but along with that comes a shotgun type release that leads to too many sacks. Often over-throws open receivers, and not able to escape the pocket.

RB: Warrick Dunn R: 8.4

Analysis: Still has the ability to get lower than the defender and escape, not as fast as he once was though and not able to run through tacklers.

Jerious Norwood R: 8.8

Analysis: One of the top players in the league when it comes to the open-field, 90% of the time will make at least one defender miss and can bring it to the house any play. Needs to work on reading his blocks, and although he can break a tackle or two, he isn’t exactly a bruiser.

FB: Ovie Mughelli R: 9.3

Analysis: To be honest, I haven’t paid too much attention to Ovie, but from what I’ve seen, he is a crushing run blocker. Can’t say much more. (one of you can help out maybe?)

WR: Roddy White R: 8.8

Analysis: A deep threat at receiver, White can run by most defenders. He struggles with his concentration, and is known for dropping easy balls, to his credit he has really improved.

Michael Jenkins R: 8.1

Analysis: A big tall receiver who can out-jump most, but like most of the receiving core struggles with concentration. Once he has the ball in his hands it’s uncommon for him to make much out of it.

Laurent Robinson R: 7.8

Analysis: Has shown flashes of greatness and tons of potential, but he has to put it all together. Doesn’t make much after the catch, but usually has reliable hands and will reach up and grab it. Concentration again.

TE: Alge Crumpler R: 9.2

Analysis: Once considered one of the top tight ends in the league, this season has struggled with both injuries and his hands. Drops the catches that you would expect a player of his caliber to catch. Great run after catch and when he gets rolling in a game tough to stop.

To be honest haven’t paid attention to the offensive line other than Blalock so if you guys want you can add here.

LE: Jamaal Anderson R: 8.0

Analysis: Until he proves otherwise in the NFL, I can’t consider him a pass-rusher. He gained weight to reassure NFL teams he could stop the run at this level, he has, now he has to re-learn to rush the pass.

UT: Rod Coleman R: 9.2

Analysis: One of the more established pass rushing tackles in the league, when healthy is a force and has to be watched.

NT: Trey Lewis R: 8.0

Analysis: Stepped up in the place of Grady Jackson when he was released, and did an outstanding job until he was placed on the IR. Will cause a lot of pressure, and has shown he can stuff the run.

RE: John Abraham R: 9.5

Analysis: Is one of the top pass-rushers in the league, and if not double-teamed he WILL get to the QB. An absolute force, but tends to focus more on the pass-rush and sometimes will get run by.

LOLB: Michael Boley R: 9.3

Analysis: An up and coming linebacker in the league, Boley is our most ferocious hitter, and undoubtfully our best LB. He seems to always sniff out the plays and is just an all-around great player.

MLB: Keith Brooking R: 8.8

Analysis: He is a great leader for the team, and has great awareness of the game. Is too slow to catch up to players, and a tendency to be eaten up by the blockers.

ROLB: DeMorrio Williams R: 8.7

Analysis: One of the more undersized linebackers in the NFL, but he makes up for that with his speed and quickness. Seems to always be around the ball and flies around the field. Being undersized, is easily blocked, and can be run over.

CB: DeAngelo Hall R: 9.6

Analysis: Easily one of the fastest players in the NFL, and is not easily burnt deep. Often too aggressive and can be beaten on pumps (see Joey Galloway) but makes up for that with his closing speed. Good ball skills and run after catch ability.

Chris Houston R: 8.3

Analysis: Looks like a steal in 2nd round and has the speed along with ability. Struggles sometimes playing next to DeAngelo, and often picked on. Has shown he can step up to the challenge (see Carolina game) and great at knocking the ball down. Couldn’t catch a cold.

FS: Chris Crocker R: 8.5

Analysis: Big hitter, will step up and challenge any ball carrier. Often beat in coverage, and can be read off.

Jimmy Williams R: ???

Analysis: Haven’t seen enough of him to make a fair assessment. I know he has the tools to big great, has to put it all together now.

SS: Lawyer Milloy R: 8.9

Analysis: In the box type safety who will lay anyone out. Can struggle in coverage, but has a vast understanding of the game.

Ratings are too high. For example Joey Harrington is probably about a 4.5

I don't know, that's a bit generous.

If every player on the Falcons was a 7 or better out of 10, they wouldn't be as god-awful as they are. Hell, not even all the Patriots would be 7/10s.

I know the ratings were a bit too Madden-esque if you know what I mean. Just used to seeing those so unknowingly went towards that direction.

Almost all overrated. Especially Brooking, DeMorrio Williams, Rod Coleman, and Jerious Norwood.

I don't think White and Norwood should be the same ranking. White should probably be right with Boley, Abraham, and DHall.
