I like how Bradford is 5 points better than Stafford despite being worse in every conceivable way sans for health.

Madden getting crazier every year. Like with some of them Rbs being in the 90's isnt right. Yea I understand they had a good year or whatever but I for 1 really dont feel like they earned them ratings yet. Im not a hater or nothing like that but Foster, Hillis, McCoy and a few other backs shouldnt be in the 90's. Look at Peterson and CJ they earned it. And being a Bronco fan I really didnt like the ratings we got. Our receiving corps is way better then given credit and then the overate Brandon Lloyd. If I can recall his rating was 88. Hes a good receiver but hes not that good. Lloyd was basically a product of his environment. It was McDaniels doing to be honest. In McDaniels offense it basically singled out 1 receiver to let him shine. Look at Eddie Royal. Hes way better then given credit for

Is anyone here doing that EA Season ticket thing? I guess the game is down-loadable and playable for the next three days with all your saved files transferring over once you get the game. Just curious to see if anyone has done this and if they have played the game yet?

Here is one for you. Look at Blounts statistics from last season and keep in mind that this was done in 7 starts, now look at Peyton Hillis (cover boy, I know) and his stats. Now look at their ratings. Thoughts?

Bills
S. Nelson a 73? Guy hasn't done anything since we drafted him.
D. Nelson should be mid/low 70s.
Jackson better CAT than Spiller?
S. Merriman 80? mid 80s with low health would be right
D. Whitner 85, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
G. Wilson 75, is better than Whitner

people should really look at the individual ratings rather than overall. A guy who is a great pass rusher may be graded lower than a solid edge rusher who plays the run. Or a RB with higher trucking may receive greater value than a few extra speed yards. Awareness may also have greater impact on a player than we think, or a RB with pass blocking.

Long story short - looking at overall isn't always the best route to go.

So I'm confused, do you pay $25 plus the retail value of the game? or do you pay $25 and that is subtracted from the $60 that the game costs? I'm sure it's $60 + $25 because that just seems like an EA thing to do.
