At the end of August, everyone's favorite virtual football game is once again due to be released, in EA's Madden 13. I'm not sure if I'm going to purchase it this year, mainly because Madden hasn't been that great for years but also it features virtual tweets by Skip Bayless, and I'm not about that life.
With the release of the game on the horizon comes with the trickling out of ratings for players. One list of ratings that have just now been released is the quarterback ratings.
Surprisingly, Blaine Gabbert is not the worst rated player in the history of the Madden franchise. In fact, he's even rated higher than some other quarterbacks.
Gabbert's overall Madden 13 rating is a 74, one point lower than both Jake Locker and Christian Ponder, which undoubtedly means that Gabbert is a total failure. Gabbert also ranks one point lower than backup Chad Henne and two points lower than Tim Tebow.
