Every year EA sports sends out the ratings of the players for Madden and this year was no different.  Players and fans learned of the ratings of the players and as expected some liked their ratings and some didn’t.  While EA has tried to scale back on the number of players who end up having a rating in the 90s there were a few players who actually got a 99 overall rating which is the highest rating you can receive.

Christian McCaffrey RB

Some ratings have left players and fans upset because they feel they are way too low.  Especially with Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers with their ratings being 90 & 89 respectively.  Aaron Rodgers has consistently been in the top 5 statistically for the past 10 years.  Deshaun Watson’s rating was a sham also, he was given an 86 overall rating where I feel he should have at least been a 90.
