Madden 11 Final Roster Update Details

by
Posted February 17th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

With the upcoming NFL season in question the 20th and final roster update for Madden 11 potentially holds more importance than the typical end-of-year update. The player ratings will not only be the primary baseline for Madden 12 but if no collective bargaining agreement is reached the rosters would remain largely the same minus free agents.

This final update concentrated on getting remaining players off the IR, adding players to teams and free agency, and adjusting the ratings to best reflect how teams and players are positioned heading into next season.

Aaron Rodgers joins elite company as a 99 overall which could position him as the ideal cover athlete for Madden 12. Nnamdi Asomugha and James Harrison fall out of the 99 club however. Continue on to check out all the changes coming in the update which is expected out on Friday and leave your thoughts in the comments!

  • smart person.

    you’re stupid. why is rodgers higher than peyton manning? think about what you do before you do it. manning has 4 mvps. rodgers has never even finished with any votes whatsoever.

    • Doc_Gon

      My guess would be cuz Rodgers is better then Peyton at this point in their careers. Stop living in the past. Manning isn’t gonna be a 99 forever. You’re stupid

    • sad

      Hurray for Peyton Manning, he’s won more popularity contests than Aaron Rodgers! Being MVP proves who the associated press thinks was the best QB or RB on a playoff team. 36 MVP awards have been won by QBs, 17 by RBs, and *four times* in 53 years by any other position: Alan Page, Jerry Rice, Laurence Taylor, and a kicker in a strike year. (There are more MVP awards than have been seasons because there have been co-MVPs a few times.) Now you can tell me that means that a QB or RB has been head-and-shoulders above any other player 92% of the time, but you’d also be saying the same thing about a placekicker in 1982.

      Maybe you want to blab something you heard on ESPN about how this ‘proves the modern NFL is a quarterback’s league’ or etc, but again, this is going back to 1957. “Peyton Manning is better because he has more MVPs” is straight of the “Trent Dilfer is better than Dan Marino because he has more rings” school of analysis. Who is better is determined by how well they performed, what level of competition they did it against, etc not how many times a bunch of idiot sportswriters said so.

  • ESisthebest

    You can put the best CB with 90 speed on a WR with 97 or so speed and the WR beats the CB everytime…..speed is the only thing that matters in this game

    • sad

      Look at the SB play where Woodson got hurt. Uses positioning and anticipation to break up a deep ball thrown to a guy he doesn’t have a shot of running with anymore. Good luck replicating that in Madden.

  • Soultrain165

    I wish they would make it so that you could change the potential of the players in the Player Management. Honestly, these ratings dont piss me off that much because I just go and change them to what I feel is appropriate but there are some players that deserve A potential and dont get it.

    • Soultrain165

      Apparently you can bump up a players ratings to where you think they would be at full potential and then they will be an A, save it and then put it back down to their original ratings but I dont know if I could fairly rate a players full potential. Yeah I can adjust a players ratings based on what I think they should be but I dont know if I can reasonably determine what they will ultimately be.

  • sad

    Great. So now according to the Madden rating system Rodgers is as good as Manning, Brady, Montana, Unitas, Young, or anyone else who ever has or ever could someday play the game. I’m a Packer fan and Rodgers is my boy, but this is an idiotic approach to ratings. They’re saying he’s as good at QB as any human being *could ever be capable of.* So what do they do if he has an even better year in 2012?

    Look, the ratings are pretty much worthless. I can sub in Matt Flynn and do just as well, but that’s a separate issue. Even if the ratings made serious differences in the way guys played, the “best (player at position X) in the league at this moment is as good as anyone who ever played the game” approach is still flawed.

    • Redskincity

      WTF is Donny doing. His ratings are random and inconsistent. How does he raise Kolbs rating and decrease McNabb. One played all season and the other only played 4 games. EA should fire Donny for being dumb.

    • Tommyfrom253

      i couldn’t agree anymore i like Rodgers but hes not better then manning hes worst then manning for example like you said you used if montana was still playing he would be a 99 so rodgers is just as good or better players like montana rice manning every1? there was to much over reacting on ovrs this season if a player had a good season he would be in the 90s wich is just stupid

  • sad

    Peprah was solid except for one play where he would’ve got beat if Roethlisberger hadn’t overthrown Wallace. Peprah was already pretty low and has never been particularly good in coverage. How perfect of a game does a guy in the low 70s need to have to avoid being penalized? Are they grading Peprah on the same curve as Collins, or what?

    Same with Shields: makes one mistake early, gets hurt on that play, gives up a TD later on because he can’t play press against Wallace in the red zone. So if you’re a rookie or low-quality journeyman and you’re in the 70s you have to have a perfect game or Donnie will drop you.

    Colledge, Raji, Crosby did nothing to deserve increases.

    Bishop is significantly better than Hawk. Hawk is slow, bad in coverage, can’t shed blocks and is a poor blitzer. His only positive contributions are a) doing good job of making the calls on D after Barnett went out, and b) never getting hurt.

    Williams is now a better CB than Woodson by a significant margin. Woodson does S/LB hybrid stuff a lot and is better at blitzing and run support, but Williams is better at coverage to a degree that isn’t even close.

    • Carl

      Hawk led the team in tackles and both him and Bishop are better than Barnet. Also Williams is great but when it comes to coverage Woodson has him beat. Woodson is the only current if not ever cb in terms of slot coverage. You must also remember how Woodson is in his mid 30s is not as fast as he once was yet he still manages to keep up with everyone. He doesnso by a little thing called awareness, posisiting and how he is so great at knowing where the ball is. Williams is great and I’m not saying he isn’t but Woodson just has a sense for the ball that Williams will never have.

      • Thunder

        yea, some of woodson’s individual ratings are a disgrace…. he’s got like 86 MCG, really, The guy that can cover anyone in the slot and still run with Fast outside WRs, get’s the respect of a average joe in man coverage.

        oh and shields has 2 most ints in playoffs covering guys like Maclin, Jenkins, Knox, and Wallace (while hurt) and he deserves a 77 or w/e??? He’s basically a starting corner…

    Editors: Not a big deal, but you mis-spelled “Eric Weddle” as “Erid Weddle” for the Chargers.

    Now, as for the decreases on the Chargers, I simply wonder why…?

    Holy crap! 20 player upgrades for the packers in the last week of the season? Did they not get any upgrades throughout the reg season or playoffs? Or did that many players actually get better in one game? Is Rodgers really any better now, attribute wise, then he was in week 9 or 10? Just my opinion, but I think the whole roster update system is in need of a rework. Now, nearly every madden gamer will be playing with the pack online whether they are a fan or not. Yuck!

      The packers went 3 players deep on the depth chart in some position’s. 3rd string safty charlie peprah played most of the year) Which means they basically had a team of 70+ players, most of those changes are to guys like that. which also make the super bowl win that much more impressive.

    WTF is Donny’s problem with hating on old players? Dude downgrades everyone just because they get one year older, and It’s always BEFORE their play even slips. And usually he just ends up looking dumb because they will have 2 or more great seasons or something and then he will barley bump them up so they are completely underrated anyways. LET THEIR PLAY SLIP BEFORE DROPPING THEM, INSTEAD OF TRYING TO PREDICT.

    Chargers should be higher, considering they had the number 1 offence/defense in the league. just sayin :P
