Madden NFL 12 Upcoming Roster Update Discussion Coming Off Week 13

Posted December 6th, 2011 at 1:00 pm

Three quarters of the NFL season is now in the books. Injuries continue to take their toll around the league – Sidney Rice and Marcus McNeill will be headed to the IR and Matt Forte could miss the rest of the regular season. The Redskins may also take a hit as Trent Williams and Fred Davis are expected to be suspended for the remainder of the year. The next roster update for Madden NFL 12 will also see Donovan McNabb dropped from the Vikings and on no team’s roster for the first time since entering the league along with Madden 2000.

Look for Marshawn Lynch to rise – no running back in the league has performed better the last 5 weeks (591 yards) and he has a league-leading 8 straight games with a TD. Chris Johnson may finally be back as for the first time this year he put up back-to-back 100+ yard performances (343 yards combined). Rob Gronkowski now has 13 TDs which sets the single season record for a tight end while Cam Newton set the mark for rushing TDs by a QB.

Roy Helu, Percy Harvin, Matt Moore, Justin Houston, Aldon Smith, and Ray Rice are all likely to receive positive attention as well. Headed downward will be Vince Young, who on passes that travel beyond 15 yards now has 0 TDs to 8 INTs – he can be joined by DeSean Jackson who continues to damage his perception in a contract year. Cedric Griffin and Caleb Hanie are just a couple others who are likely to fall a bit in this update.

As always leave your thoughts in the comments on what players and/or teams should get ratings boosts or downgrades in the upcoming roster update for Madden NFL 12!

    How about a ratings boost for Tennessee’s Colin McCarthy? The guy has been an absolute wrecking ball over his last 3 games. So far this season he has 42 tackles, 2 forced fumbles & 1 interception. Sounds worthy to me.

    victor cruz is in the top 5 of yards this year so far… out of the top ten in yards he is 2nd with the highest avg per catch…behind steve smith(carolina)…tied in first with 6 40+ catches tied in 4th with CALVIN JOHNSON with 17 20+ yard catches…5th in adv/g and 10th with 62 catches…i just think its an insult to him on madden that he’s still a 82 rating which a resume like that to back it up

    • Brotherzee101

      All of u bumms never ever even mention the texans and every team in the NFL is scared to play them even with a rookie QB. They’ve sustained injury after injury and still pull of wins even against teams like the steelers. Give them some love and stop sucking on the packers, steelers, giants and ravens nuts for a change. They are 9-3 this year 2nd in defense and 7th in offense. Y’all can say nothing bad about them because they are sound in all phases of the game running, passing, run defense and pass defense.

      • Brotherzee101

        And in special teams we are 3rd over all, get a clue and recognize the Houston Texans baby…lol.

      • itslike that

        Its good that YOU [brotherzee] stepped up and mentioned HOU.  Don’t rely on anyone else to do it. Hardly anyone here puts any thought worth posting usually  I love seeing worthy fresh info on teams no one mentions.

        I’ll be CLEAR on what i mean by that:
         
        Watching sportscenter highlights of some good plays made by top players,then coming on here and RE-POSTING the same guys over and over [like brothezee said, “Get off their nuts!”

        Can’t anyone else be original?  Maybe it’s easier for me because i don’t have a favorite team. I’ll be honest i do favor the AFC though. That’s probably due to the fact people I talk football most with have AFC teams. Naturally the conversations gravitates in that direction.

          POINT IS:  Watch tape/games, find the guy away from the ball making plays week after week at their position. Find the player that isn’t on SC highlights. Try to shed some light on the guys no one is respecting or seeing. Find the scrappy team that is getting ripped off by BS calls and losing games week after week. Things like that.
         
        Instead of re-posting the same guys,go reply to the comment already made.

        Looks ridiculous posting the same top 10 NFL players on a team over & over.
        We DON’T NEED  PATS FANS PUTTING TOM BRADY NEEDS 99.  Yeah we see the other 10 posts. Go reply to one or stop being lazy and add something worth posting.

        Find the guy that isn’t getting national attention & STOP REGURGITATING THE SPORTSCENTER INFO YOU JUST WATCHED.

        DOING THAT SHITS WEAK!!

    Ryan Mathews… averaging 5 yds + a carry. Guys a beast, deserves way better than that 82 or whatever he’s at, and his catching rating should increase too, he’s a threat out of the backfield.

    enough said

  • Amont04

    Victor Cruz and Eli need to be higher, also Jaquain Williams should be a 74

  • beast mode

    Dashon Goldson needs a hit power increase badly!! He destroys someone every week

  • Anonymous

    Tebow has an 87.9 passer rating…his deep accuarcy needs an increase..nothin monumental but it needs to be increased…and his other areas of accuarcy need to be increased…awareness needs a boost too…he has improved his pocket presence….shown by the steep decrease in his sack totals despite playing teams that had capable pass ruhs

  • Aristtso

    marshawn lynch needs go increase to a 88 with another beast mode profomace and another 100+ yards rushing

  • Stillerz

    Jeremy Kapinos +

  • Efrancis4ever

    Can anyone give my boy Aaron maybin some love for pretty much clinching the game???? Also shonn Greene scored 3 tds

  • Mackmoney

    Yeah VCruz needs to be 84 at least with an A potential. Jason Pierre Paul should also be increased the guy is 3rd in sacks with 10.5 and is an absolute beast. Jordy Nelson needs to have his potential changed to an A.

    • Logic

      Both Jordy and Cruz need speed increase as well.

  • Dcorbell03

    Titans need a major upgrade. McCarthy needs a big increase as he is challenging Rudd for his starter spot when he gets healthy. griffin Verner playing good the WR core has shown that it can play well Chris Johnson should be in 90s can’t believe he had dropped so much overall this season…. Smh but seems to be on track now. Anyways yah update the titans! Go titans!

  • Hotrog3000

    Matt Moore needs some love. i dont see why they cant give him a 81 at least, but of course they will bumb him from 78 to a 79
