Why should EA make the rookies have a good rating, you can't tell if their going to have a good season or not. Last year McFadden had a 85 rating, which is descent. But he only got 444yards. Adrian Peterson had a 80 rating but had a phenomenal year. So stop complaining about the starting season and wait for the rookies to prove themselves.

is it just me or is madden's gameplay and stats becoming more like ESPN 2k5? i'm pretty sure that close chain feature and route running were from ESPN.. step it up madden we've seen these features 5 years ago!!

You can't be serious, 68 route running for Jeremy Maclin, and the next guy drafted is a tight end who has 72 route running? /facepalm

Darrius Heyward-Bey got screwed... He is faster than Harvin and they are both 97's... he should be a 98 speed...and his other attributes should be tweaked as well.

Hey listin up if Ea sports allows the gamer to import their face in tiger woods why cant they allow you to do it in madden i hope that changes in madden 10 it would really bring more people to play the game and experience it in a different way it would be really good for superstar mode... comment back if you agree DHB

It's amazing. I played against Percy Harvin in when he was at Landstown High now look at him...it's always good to see all of the athletes from VA doing well.

Steelers had the hardest schedule last year and still dominated. I see no reason why they can't repeat.

Wells ran a 4.59 and a 4.37 at his pro day. Granted he obviously doesn't run a 4.37 and its a proday but it shows the 4.59 was a little slow. Moreno ran a 4.6 at both combine and his proday.... Honestly besides the pass catching wells is much superior as a back lets be honest. And you want to talk about speed being screwed...how about Malcom Jenkins? Ran a 4.51 combine and gets an 86? Or Crabtree... ran a 4.5 on a healing broken foot come on.

Nicks will blow everyone away who has a good or bad defence... Go Gaints. Eagles got nothing. A WR who is the same on the other side whos not great (not bad). You'll see. Your screwed when you play a real team like the G-men... All teams are screweeeeeed.

Lil_Wii_MVP_13

Mark Sanchez, Knowshawn Moreno, Malcom Jenkins, and Micheal Crabtree will be da best this year 8)

Yeah, how the hell does beanie wells have 89 speed and brown has 88 and moreno 86, there's no way he's faster than either of those two

parhar67

@ ravspdr That may be true but remember this is the big league now. You have to compare him with all the other receivers out their. He hasnt played yet and people want to give him a high rating. Compared to people like Randy Moss Marvin Harrison and Larry Fitzgearld he is nothing yet. Until he proves himself.

EA should fix the franchise mode the franchise mood 4 05 is way better than the in madden 09

crabtree is a great route runner thats ridiculous to have him at 79

I must say, Harvin on the same team with Adrian Peterson is pretty scary.

Most of this crap is bogus. Crabtree isn't that slow and Knowshon is waaaaayyyy faster than a 86.
