this should keep people entertained until TC. these are the madden06 player ratings for the dolphins. ricky isn't in the game since he was only reinstated this past week, but should be in the 1st roster update.

actually looking at these ratings im rather surprised. Kevin carter got a 90. and so did sam madison. im surprised they gave vonnie what they did. and ronnie got an 84. thats really good for a rookie. (alex smith got an 82, for anyone who cares)

Aj, Gus, and Rohan Davey are all 78's. Branch and Givens are both better than Chambers. They are very interesting rating to say the least.


EDIT: Nevermind about Branch and Given, I'm an idiot.

PhinSoldia
07-22-2005, 11:36 PM
Cedric is more of a bruiser....he would most likely walk in Jamaal Lewis' path....Not the "greatest" speed you have seen but he is pretty quick and he can blow through tackles

All three of those receivers should've been lower, probably Booker too. Madden overrated receivers & QB's big time this year. I've never seen this many receivers over 85 before. I hate the fact that there are like 5-10 players rated a 99. I don't think anybody should be higher than an 98.

For the person who said the 4-12 Dolphins got raped, you're one hell of a homer.

madden ratings are first and foremost based on skill...THEN production from the previous year....thats why Chris Chambers have been a 88+ the last 3 years....Case in Point Marty Booker is a great reciever...dont pass judgement on him because he didnt produce...like he should have

PhinSoldia

Yep....you only need to worry about awareness from your WRs and your DB's...there ability to go after a ball when they are led in a certain direction when it is thrown to them....and Probably Linebackers to read Play Action passes and to get into running lanes quickly

Interesting....

Some guys were ranked higher than I expected like Brown at 84 (thats real high for a rookie), Zach at 96, Roeth at 79, and Zgonina and Traylor at 85.

Then some were way lower like Jeno James only at 78, Will Poole at 70, and McMike at 90, and Taylor only a 95.

Jeno's rating probably suffered from the Oline sucking as a whole....I agree he should have been at a 85-88 range, McMike is fine at the spot he is...and Taylor is fine....Will should have been a 78 or so....Madden will start Reggie Howard probably

Wes Welker's KR ability is a little bit low, he's one of the Phins players i'm getting excited about for the upcoming season. But oh well. I'm really going to have a horrible time with this game. With the new passing system they have, and the Dolphins o-line looking miserable. I'm going to have a horrible time throwing the pigskin.

Freeney is a 98 and Seymore is a 97. Personally I don't think either are better than Taylor and it can be argued that I am right. Either way they are not that much better if they are better at all. Abraham is a 95 and Kerney is a 95 and I don't think either is in Taylor's class. As for McMike I think he should at least be 92. Heap is a 94 and I think he is right there with him for the third best TE behind Gonzales and Gates.

because Freeney and Seymore are both YOUNGER...and they both were more productive than Jason last year, I disagree with you Kerney is up there..probably not 95..but after Mora switched to 4-3 he has been a beast....Heap is in a more productive offense, and quite frankly he did better last year the Randy i agree mcmike should have been a 91 but 90 is pretty accurate...dont let the homer in you get the best of you.

One big thing to keep in mind in respect to Madden ratings:

They have to make sure bad teams will be bad in the game. I think had Madden rated our guys more in line with actual talent, we woudn't be too bad at all. There is no way for the game to make a group of talented players play bad, so Madden must make bad teams less talented teams.

The same goes for good teams. You look at the Pats and Maddens got some fairly lackluster players rated highly because the Pats have to be good in the game. Not saying that the Pats aren't a great team, but some of the ratings for their guys are definitely suspect.

PhinSoldia
07-23-2005, 12:26 AM

So are you saying that all the Madden personell should be burned like all other media who talks bad about Miami...McMike was in a non-productive offense...and besides ronnie brown he is in the SAME offense regardless of who the coach is....(DISCLAIMER- I AM A FIN FAN AND EXPECT BOTH RANDY AND THE TEAM TO DO VERY WELL THIS YEAR 9-7 MINIMUM..LOVE SABAN AND THE CAOCHING STAFF) you have to remember that this is all ON PAPER....

I agree, but it's the only way to make the game work. I would love it if they could come up with a way to make the team not necessarily equal to the sum of the parts, but it seems like it would be hard to do.

As far as Barry a 70 that would never happen. I think they sorta try to stay fairly accurate to the top notch guys, the ones that suffer are the good to decent players.

i'm going to use the 4-3 defense, use JT at RE, manually switch Roth to LE, traylor and Carter in the middle, Seau and Crowder at OLB(till zach Retires) Zach in the middle, and use the rest as trade bait for some DB help

The Patriots got jobbed.

There's some real head scratchers in these rankings. Not to mention a lot of players missing altogether.

The Patriots are missing Matt Chatham (a valuable backup LB), Izzo, Klecko, Don Davis, Ellis Hobbs (rookie), Nick Kaczur (rookie) as well as my boy Tedy (which is understandable I guess). I wonder what they would've rated him. If Zach is a 96 what's Tedy? A 120??

The strange part is that while they're missing all these players, they included a few training camp fodder types who have never and will never make this team.

I'm curious why after all these years Madden hasn't implemented the official rules governing NFL rosters. I mean, 53 man rosters, 5 man practice squads, and 45 man active game day rosters. You'd think after all this time, they'd have that in the game by now.

Traylor at an 85 is about right when you notice his stamina is 50. Which means you gotta learn to sub him in and out a lot. If you don't your going to get eaten alive up the middle. Anyone would have to be daft to make him a 3 down starter. In fact I only plan to have him in the 3-4 package if it's included.

Is anyone suprised with Ronnie's agility? 88, that's a bit over for me, I think his agility and Break tackle should be switched. BTK is 82 btw

Most of the ratings are right in my mind and we got a few good ones in there like Zgonia at 85. I think we got a bit jibbed on Crowder's speed and ratings though. He was a 1st round prospect until all of the attitude and injury questions popped up and now he is suddenly a 3rd round rating and only average-good speed.

They should have given him 100% kick accuracy, he's never missed one afterall :D

What's really stupid is that they rated him below Minor for kick returns. What the hell? Welker is WAY better then Minor for returns, he finally brought a little spark to our special teams.

I'm so happy to have Welker on the Phins :D

Caddy Williams over all 83 with 92 speed & 95 acceleration.

wes welker was given "slow white-boy" status
I believe he was second in punt return avg last year. so he might have some wheels.

yes, the topic creator neglected the gaming forum. There was already a thread there, but he started another one here

Thats nothing, Check out Clinton Portis...96 speed? & that went down from 98 last year.

Caddy Williams over all 83 with 92 speed & 95 acceleration.

heh, Fiedler rated 77 Worse than both Feeley & Ferrotte.
Hey, what's with Miami & all these "F"-ing Qb's?

Ya Carter at 90 is a surprise.

Losman is rated higher than both aj and gus.

It's because Losman was a 1st round pick last year.

Probably cause of speed too.

Our secondary has 3 of the four guys over 90.

Our LBs are 88 , 93, and 97

Our DL has two guys over 90


Our D is gonna be sweet.

Yeah, the only player that they really rated too low on the D was Chris Kelsay.

Nice to see McMichael finally get his due. Some of you are saying 90 is too low for him, but remember that in ESPN 2K5, he was like a 77 :shakeno:

Welker below Minor for kick returns is ridiculous.

I think Boston at 84 is being very generous. With our top 3 receivers rated as they are, I'd expect most Dolphins franchises to have all three of them at 90+ in year two.

Matt Roth at 79 is a nice surprise. He'll be in the mid 80's and starting by the end of the first franchise year.

Kinda odd to see that Reggie Howard is rated at 85. I wish Daniels was a bit higher... it'll be an uphill climb to get him into starting form.

Feeley at 78 kinda sucks, but it's workable. You'll be able to pick up at least two points for him in drills, and then if you play him conservatively through the first few games and get some high QB ratings, he'll be up to an 82 or 83. From there, it's cake.

Other observations: David Bowens got completely screwed... the best season of his career gets him a 77; Larry Chester takes a year off and only drops one point... weird; if we can believe Houck, Rex Hadnot will be severely underrated; Yeremiah Bell seems a bit low, but then again, he did get hurt; no Alabi or Vickerson, but they'll probably end up in the game somehow.

he's OK...

He improved toward the end, but he was inconsistant.

I hope he can play well every game next season.

I think they underrated McGee a little, but he was kinda in the same boat as Kelsay

The ratings given by EA sports are nice, but I prefer to adjust them anyways.
Chambers catching should be much better than 86, and he's atleast a 90 overall.

95 is low for JT, because he's in no way near 94. Alot of guys got slightly generous ratings, and some just got plain robbed.

that really makes the game unfair for homers....while you at it why dont you just put all of New England to under 60 to where we "feel" that she should be....the ratings are fair...leave them

Is anyone suprised with Ronnie's agility? 88, that's a bit over for me, I think his agility and Break tackle should be switched. BTK is 82 btw

Most of the ratings are right in my mind and we got a few good ones in there like Zgonia at 85. I think we got a bit jibbed on Crowder's speed and ratings though. He was a 1st round prospect until all of the attitude and injury questions popped up and now he is suddenly a 3rd round rating and only average-good speed.

The good thing about that is that BTK can go up through just good game performance where as agility only goes up in training camp ;)

ronnie only got an 82 at tackle breaking though, that sucks... hes the 4th best pass blocker though which is good...

Um no I don't remember that. McMike was always ranked high on 2k5.

When they update it, do they only add/drop players? Or do they also tweak the numbers as well?

yeah, they tweak thoughout the season....


as for the people complaining about Bua and Pope not being there....so what? Its possible they may not even make the team, and if they didn't, would you still care if they were missing?

Lionel Turner isn't on there, and I fully expect him to make the roster....any player not on there right now that makes the 53 man roster will be there on the early September roster update

Dolphins got raped in the ratings department.
That's EA for you.


wait a second, at one point we were one of the best teams in Madden along with Tampa Bay...(it was the year Tampa Bay won the Super Bowl)...and we never lived up to our hype....you can't exp[ect them to make us one of the best teams especially coming off a 3-13 season...no way, can't blame 'em.

this should keep people entertained until TC. these are the madden06 player ratings for the dolphins. ricky isn't in the game since he was only reinstated this past week, but should be in the 1st roster update.

I am going to use my ncaa 2006 game to get all my help i will trade for all draft picks and draft matt leinart and d'brickashaw ferguson

so lance shulters on the FA is an 88, so that'll be nice for our secondary... and frank middleton is an 85, which is big for our Oline (if he really starts at RG and rex moves to center)
