Jacksonville Jaguars 2007 Madden Ratings

New, comment

This has nothing to do with the game against Miami but everything to do with the Jaguars.  You see, Tuesday is "Madden Day" where thousands of NFL fans begin to fill their heads with how the 2007 will play out through the 0's and 1's of computer simulations.

Personally, I enjoy the game, particularly the "franchise mode", where I attempt to prove Jacksonville's dominance through shrewd moves.  But I'll be the first to admit that I'm not much of a "sticks guy".  I'm not particularly good at catching passes or anything beyond basic running moves, yet I still love playing.

That being said, the most frustrating thing about Madden in my opinion is the downright shitty way they evaluate talent and player ratings.  In most cases, it's as though they spend 15 seconds estimating who's gonna be on the roster and how to rate them.  The Jaguars 2007 roster reflects that.   The Wide Receivers are wacky, Byron is underwhelming, and I don't think they even considered our linebackers.

That being said, here are the ratings.
