Madden 11 Week 10 Ratings Change Suggestions. Should Vick be 99?

by
Posted November 16th, 2010 at 7:10 am

After a huge week 10 the question now arises as to whether Michael Vick actually deserves to be a 99 overall in Madden 11 and the argument can certainly be made that he should be. It would be an unprecedented leap to go from starting the year at a 73 and getting incremental upgrades through roster updates only to reach the pinnacle by the end of week 10.

He currently sits at 87 and there has never been a one week jump that could even compare to going from that place to a 99. Really though where a player starts shouldn’t prevent them from either reaching a certain height or falling to a particular low when their performance warrants it.

Vick on the year has 11 TDs without having thrown a single INT and 4TDs rushing while leading the league in passer rating. He is just as dynamic and explosive as ever but has really refined his game as a passer with the patience to stay in the pocket and allow routes to develop. If he had started from week one and not been hit with the injury that cost him most of four games who knows what those numbers would be considering the level he has been playing at.

Other names that stood out in week 10 include Mike Williams (SEA), Dez Bryant, Dwayne Bowe, David Garrard, Kyle Orton, Colt McCoy, and LeGarrette Blount. Continuing on a downslide is Carson Palmer, Brett Favre, Jay Cutler, and Randy Moss. Aaron Kampman, Andre Smith, and Chad Pennington are headed to the IR.

Where do you feel Michael Vick deserves to be rated? As always feel free to also leave your thoughts in the comments on which players or teams deserve increases or decreases in ratings.

    Adrian Peterson’s carry needs to start going up a bit faster. 227 straight touches without a fumble

    Jason Snelling +

    Michael Jenkins +
    Brent Grimes +
    John Abraham +

    Mike Vick should be in the 95-97 range. If he continues to dominate boost him to 99.

    Pasta, ARE YOU HIGH? Seriously?

    Vick deserves to be whatever his numbers for his career numbers says he should be, period. You don’t adjust a players numbers radically EVERY SINGLE WEEK based on performance.

    Seriously, its arguments like that which is why I support removing the OVR rating; instead of calcuating a players overall ranking as an aggregate of their individual stats, we’re now at the point we are adjusting those stats to justify whatever OVR we *think* the player in question should be this week.

    Seriously, stop it. He’s still a below-average pocket passer, and when he faces the Giants next week, and throws 3 picks, everyone will feel foolish for having this “Vick should be 99 based on ONE GAME” discussion.

    patriots!!! spanked the steelers …o line was lights out no sacks allowed brady had time all day same with eagles o line their the reason why vick did so good he had time all day to run around vick should be a 92 for now hes gotta be consistant and healthy… pats d played good had 5 sacks mike wright played great so did guyton and mccourty…green-elis played good again and rob gronkowski had a huge game comming off a bad one had 3 td and made some nice catches

    Why shouldnt he be??
    Hes playing better than any other QB in the league right now. Key word is right now, stop trying to talk about what brady and manning have done over the years.
    Vick is out playing both of them and matter of fact he beat the Colts.
    The guy has 10 TD’s and no picks and got 6 TDs on monday.

    People need to stop acting like Vick cant throw the ball.

  • 1NFLfan

    Give me a break…Jay Cutler deserves to go down for throwing three touch downs and 2 picks. One of those picks was a tipped pass off a receivers hands. Freakin people hate the bears, I swear. And no way Vick goes to a 99 for one kick ass day.

  • Guest

    Josh Freeman, Benn, Blount, Winslow, The O-Line, Caddy (yes I know), Mike Williams (he is still the best rookie WR and got screwed over for a couple weeks in a row), Erik Lorig (the running game has improved with him as fullback). G. McCoy he had 5 solo tackles and a force fumbled, he caused problems for the O-Line. Dekoda Watson looked good, as did Rudd, Geno Hayes is still being screwed over. Talib, Biggers, and Barber need a jump. Connor Barth needs some love too.

    LOL he will eventually be a 99 once you guys realize he is unbeatable at this point of his career

  • Ugacostello

    I think he should definitely be up there but not any higher then 94. He may be having a great season, but this week was the only time that he really exploded beside week 3 vs the Jags. He hasn’t played a team with a top ranked defense at all this season. The Giants will be his first real test and if he does what he did against the Redskins to the Giants then I think you could make a case for him being 96+. But even then I think 99 is a to high for someone who has only played in 5 games and had one 300 yard game vs the LAST ranked defense in the league lol

    • Nphillyk

      Agreed, Vick is playing great right now but people are taking things a bit far with all of this 99 rating, best QB in the league stuff. smh

  • Georgeadens4

    Brandon Lloyd has been leading the league in receptions pretty much all season. When will he get some real love. His catch in traffic should be a lot higher & what about orton second leading passer in the league

  • Gvanheu

    troy smith deserves a big boost

  • BeastoftheEast

    Since dallas has pretty much been the whipping boy of the recent madden updates (with all the losing, im not arguing against it), i think after a sound victory over the g men they should finally see some players increase. jon kitna and dez bryant played lights out and need boosts. The o line did a tremendous job at keeping kitna upright and holding off one of the best front fours in football (Doug free/Marc colombo in particular). Dallas’ front seven on D stuffed the giants daunted running game for sixty minutes and therefore should see boosts there as well. Stephen Bowen, not Jason Hatcher should be moved to LE #1 in place of injured Marcus Spears. That is all

    • HaloUnion

      they are still 2-7. I agree Kitna could use a boost, but lets see them win more than that before we start giving them their old ratings back.

  • Cth

    Ok before you guys update the bucs new runningback please know that he fumbles most of the time!!!!! hes carrying should be low

  • johnnyfoosball

    A few suggestions:

    –Vick- 92(5 point increase is just fine. No need to jump the gun. Big enought jump as it is. The guy’s a beast. Needs more time for a 99 though, no doubt.)
    –Kyle Orton – 89
    –Dez Bryant- 86 being very, very conservative. Speed should be 94 at least. The punt return TD’s have been electric. Catches everything.Sounds crazy, because it is, but he’s their MVP so far with 7 total TD’s.
    –Mike Williams(SEA) – 80, if he isn’t already. I like what he’s doing, but he has to keep proving himself and has only 1 TD.
    – Terrell Owens – 92 Yea, he gave up on a play that resulted in a pick. He’s also 3rd in receiving yards and has 7 TD’s. Last year was nothing more than the result of him being on a horrible team. He’s still got it.
    – Brandon Lloyd – 88- What’s up with this guy?
    – Matt Cassell- 83- Benefitting from those running backs, but taking advantage of them and putting up damn good numbers.
    – Cameron Wake- 85

    • Nphillyk

      Agree with everything you just said except Dez Bryant having a 94 speed. With the way Madden is now (stingy with speed ratings) I would put him at a 90-91 speed.

      • Youngmillymac

        that was he is now

  • Polorainbolt3

    95-97 is my guess for Vick. Troy Smith should move up quite a bit as well.

  • MBISTYD

    As someone who has an insatiable love for the game of football, I love watching Vick defy what I have always perceived to be prototypical. Vick can be a quarterback who “changes the game forever”, that being said, fan is short for fanatic and the fans of Vick need to realize that what occurred during Monday night was a special performance that will always be remembered, but that’s it. In terms of what his overall rating should be, I find it hard to justify a 99 rating for anyone so I think he should go up to a 90 or 91 overall and we should wait and see how he does on a weekly basis. My “bone” that I pick with madden is the fact that players often are boosted to much and dropped to far based on one single game…roster updates should occur every 3 weeks so time can pass and so players have to be consistent in order to receive upgrades.

    • Nphillyk

      You hit the nail right on the head with this post. Madden needs to stop with the weekly updates and start waiting 3-4 weeks so they can weed out the flukes from the consistent performers. And yes, you are right. Vick should be a 90-91 for now….

  • Blinkcookie310

    give troy smith some more love after that great performance he put against the rams

  • Big l

    Chris Long +++ playing amazing football as of late

  • Jhutch09

    Cowboys Ratings Changes: Dez Bryant hopefully he will get his well earned 88.
    Felix Jones should have never went down in the 70′s put the man back at his 83.
    Marion Barber: The finisher give him an 80 plz.
    Roy Williams I dont know if anyone saw him run with Felix that one play but he was fast needs his speed up.
    Bryan Mccan: Zone Coverage up Speed up and Awareness great play 101yd int return.
    Matt Mcbriar: Simply the best punter in the game he needs to be 99. or at least a 95 great kicking vs Giants.

    • Sppash101

      Jhutch09= Cowboy fan= overreacts over 1 game

  • Jhutch09

    Vick hasnt had a bad Game yet. He’s been injured a couple games this season really hiding his numbers. Lets see the next couple games before we bump him that high. Also when he gets the shit knocked out of him again, expect him out a couple weeks.

  • Jhutch09

    Oh yea and forgot 1 player Jon Kitna 75 Overall that performace over the giants should give him his increase. Then next week he has his Former team come to town, maybe he will deliver another flawless game. Hopefully when the year end we will see him in the 80′s.

    9-7 to super bowl and Kitna wins it. I would shit if Kitna did that.

  • Gee-Q

    I Think Michael Vick Should be a 95 on the spot he is accurate down the field Is am the only one that notice though that he doesnt through slants and curl routes only short passes he throw is screens before he was injured against skins he played horrible his first two possesions throwing

  • Nigeriasbrightest

    I agree that Micheal new look Vick should be granted the ratings, that his play has allowed him to reserve. The fear is the band wagon of online and off-line players that will accompany this dramatic boost. I also feel 49ers QB Troy Smith ratings should increase. He has been proven to be the answer to the 49ers QB trouble and just came off a big division win against the Rams…What do you think?

    • Nphillyk

      My opinion: Vick should be a 90 until further notice. He has had 5 good games this season but that does not warrant increasing him to the pinnacle of elite status. As for Troy Smith, he definitely needs an increase after passing 17-28 for 356 1 TD 0 INT. He has been the poor man’s Vick IMO. lol

  • Nigeriasbrightest

    Patrick Willis should also be a 99 in my opinion..?

    • Nphillyk

      Hell yes.

    • Nphillyk

      Hell yes.

  • Megdemon9

    to be honest i wouldnt mind his 99 since madden is going to do it no matter what we say. BUT THAT FOR DAMN SURE MEANS THEY BETTER INCREASE SOME DEFESIVE PLAYERS ALL ACROSS THE LEAGUE and start actually giving us plays to stop the scrabling QB. PLUS how about lowering some of the other eagles players. if they are as good as they are in madden then they woudlnt be tied with like half the NFC for the second best record in the confrence. seeing as how atlanta is 7 – 2 they should be rated the best in the NFC end of story. yes they actually beat teams with winning records. UNLIKE THE GIANTS. How many teams have the giants beat that have or even have had winning recodrs this season. Their defense has been dominat against mediocre to crappy offenses so i mean how is that good. and when the play even a good team not even great they get destroyed all around so guiants are not as good as everyone seems to think. I HOPE TO GOD THE COWBOYS DO NOT GET ANY GID INCREASES. its one game for god sake. and if vick deserves a 99 he would have never went out with an injury so isay he dosent. AND please bucs fans stop saying grimm is good. please brent grimes from the falcons went UNDRAFTED and is now a very good starting corner back

  • Murdamusak

    revis cromartie up sanchez braylon needs better run block he is a beast @ blocking green up

  • Anthony

    I am going to guess he will be a 90 in the next update, simply because if he were a 99, everyone would use the Eagles online.

  • http://twitter.com/sterlingwebb Kevin Webb

    Troy Smith needs some serious ratings increased. His Accuracy and Throw power shoould be higher than Alex Smith easily.

  • Stetson

    There is no way he deserves a 99 overall rating. He’s good, but he’s only played in 6 of the 9 games so far this season. I don’t think any player in the NFL deserves a 99 rating of playing only one good year in the NFL (not counting pre-jail).

  • Redboi86

    95

  • Kc571

    please no…then everyone will be playing with hi, and running in the pocket..it’s painful

  • Jsportz2000

    vick has to be at least a 93

  • http://www.facebook.com/Shannon.KOz.Krohn Shannon Krohn

    I like the increase he is getting now lets see how he holds up but when are they going to UPDATE vicks hair he does not have cornrows anymore hasn’t had them in YEARS !!!!! and it would be nice if the game actually mentioned his damn name everyonce in a while its like he dosn’t exist in the games dialog its still talking about Kolb all the time Not VICK fix this you cheap bastards !!!!!!! YES it is THAT important to me i pay money for the game i want the realest i can get out of it

    • http://www.facebook.com/Shannon.KOz.Krohn Shannon Krohn

      they are updating the helmets and equipment now so don’t tell me they can’t change vicks hair from cornrows and i guess im the only one who wishes they would at least mention his name in the game once in a while not the old irelivent story about how Kolb is taking over for Mcnabb

    • Nphillyk

      I hear you man. I have been waiting for them to update Michael Crabtree (as well as others) skin tone since release, but to no avail. I don’t think it will happen…maybe next year. If I decide to actually buy this crap next year.

  • Xmanriv

    If michael vick goes to a 99 overall rating, i officially give up on madden. & i love madden but thats absolutely 100% non sense

  • JetsAreTrash

    Brady needs to be a 97-98, Gronkowski needs a boost abour 2pts ovr all maybe and Welker should have his speed boosted to like 90, he is so much faster in real life then in game.

    This just goes to show us that the rating system is not at all accurate. Sometimes guys have great weeks and sometimes guys have bad weeks. You can’t say that their skill level always goes up or down on a weekly basis. That’s just how professional sports are. Not just in football either but in all sports. But I do believe that Mike Vick has proven that he is an elite QB in this league. He does deserve a higher rating. I’m not sure if he deserves a 99 just yet. I think he should play a few more games to deserve that rating.
