Madden NFL 10 Ratings (Madden 2010)

Experience first-hand what it's like to Fight for Every Yard in Madden NFL 10. With the all-new Pro-Tak™ animation technology, players have more control over the outcome of each play. Whether driving a receiver towards the first down, or battling for a fumble at the bottom of a pile, the play won't end until the whistle blows.

Add to that the most immersive broadcast presentation and online innovation to date, and Madden NFL 10 captures the authenticity and emotion of the NFL like never before.

The Madden video game has taken on a life of it's own. Madden video tournaments are held all over the nation on Xbox 360, Playstation 2, and Playstation 3. EA Sports is constantly pushing the bar for innovation in a football video game.

Always controversial, the Madden ratings and rankings are a somewhat accurate description of where professional football players and teams rank among their peers.

In terms of Chargers player ratings, this is what we know so far. Note: Shawne Merriman is not one of the top 10 defensive players in the game. Also, Jason Witten is rated 2 points higher than Antonio Gates.

Philip Rivers, #7 QB
Overall = 88
TP = 81
TAS = 96
TAM = 94
TAD = 79
AW = 91
SP = 63

TP: Throw Power; TAS: Throw Accuracy Short; TAM: Throw Accuracy Mid; TAD: Throw Accuracy Deep; AW: Awareness; SP: Speed

LaDainian Tomlinson, #3 RB
Overall = 94
SP = 90
AG = 92
TR = 87
EL = 90

So football fans, do you plan on purchasing Madden football video game this year? If so, what system will you buy it for? Also, do you generally agree with the rankings/ratings or do you find issues with the way EA grades the NFL teams and players?

yea this years rating system is flawed.....last year Rivers was a 90 rating, can someone please explain to me how his rating went down to points after posting career bests and led the league in touchdowns. Its really sad because i am a long time fan of the chargers and madden and to see this really upsets me. I think the worst rating they posted up was, Deangelo williams from the panthers, a one year wonder is rated above veterans such as clinton portis, frank gore, steven jackson and thomas jones. This years rating system, shows that the madden designers no nothing about football

I agree Rivers should be in the top 5 of QBs. This is totally b/s a 105.5 QB Rating 34 TDS throwing 100+ less passes then Brees and he drops 2 points his throwing power is a 81? for real? You'd think after 20+ years they'd get some people in there that now something about football. UNBELIEVEABLE!

Madden your retired now go smack the crap out of these morons. You got the time! If Rivers is a 88 then means Eli Manning better be a 82 at best. I swear to GOD these people at EA must be living under a rock. How dumb can you be.

theres a new rating system and they wanted to make sure the elites were really the elites of the game this year and i looked at the top 10 qb and they were almost picure perfect in terms of order, but i do agree that rivers shoulda been at least an 90 mayb a 91 or 92. i love the new system, jus because its alot different than of last year where everyone even the likes of tony romo was a 95 doesnt mean u should bash on it. they making it realistic where the best stood at the top

You guys are retarded. They made more statistics and made everyone's ratings Teams/Players ratings go down. Gosh quit complaining. If they do such a crappy job then why don't you either make your own or buy the company. Either way you can't afford it idiots. They do a superb job and this madden will be the best madden ever and top last years addition in every way possible. And besides who cares that much about ratings anyway? You people should care if the game is all around good. Otherwise just get NCAA 10 then dumbasses

Good Lord, it's only a computer game, it's not (I repeat, NOT) real life!! Please understand this basic irrefutable premise, Madden 2010 is not real football, not real life, and no amount of playing it will may you or others one speck better at football. And as a possible nerd safe haven to enjoy indulging barbaric urges and competitive juices without any real risk, it's very existence is an insult to the reality and history of a truly great game; NFL football.

You can have your opinions about the ratings but yeah, it's just a game. The full Madden 10 season preview can be found over on the Madden website, don't get too upset though, lol.

Philip Rivers is a decent quarterback i think you guys give him too much credit in the first place. When LT takes all the pressure off the passing game you should be able to put up some good numbers. You guys should be worrying if the game is actually gonna be decent this year where linebackers dont have 50" verticles to pick off a pass or get super speed when they need that extra yard to pick it off.

Can everyone just calm down and wait for the game to come out. they do make Live updates and believe me if they see that enough people are complaining they will change the ratings. Secondly, this isn't exactly the fault of the game makers for I am sure they know not to have biases like us when choosing rating for people and I can assure you that they have a much far accurate way of rating players than all you Charger lover fans can ever have.

This is why I always go in and update the ratings myself, anyway. And not just for the Chargers - I do it for the entire league. Because these roster maker guys just simply get it wrong a lot of the time. It's my/your game, you can go in and change things around. Unless you play solely online, and even then it doesn't really matter since they update the players as the season goes on.

WHAT THE FK? Philip rivers is a 88?. ARE U SERIOUS? He had a great year and i think he should of won MVP instead of Manning. I seriously believe Rivers is the best QB in the league right now.

I think that they have to change philip river rating HIGHER THAN TOM BRADY CAUSE philip riverS GOT THE CHARGERS FARTHER IN THE SUPERBOWL THAN TOM BRADY DID.
