Madden NFL 13 Conference Championship Upcoming Roster Update Discussion

Posted January 21st, 2013 at 10:45 am


The two road teams pulled off dramatic victories to advance to the Super Bowl as the Baltimore Ravens will face the San Francisco 49ers for the Lombardi Trophy. The 49ers enter the game as favorites having opened -5 but the public has already bet the line down to -4 in most places.

Players likely to see an upgrade based on performance in the Conference Championship games include Joe Flacco, Julio Jones, Vernon Davis, Tony Gonzalez, Dennis Pitta, Haloti Ngata, Bernard Pollard, and Alfonzo Dennard. As always leave your thoughts in the comments on what players deserve to go up or down in ratings with the next Madden NFL 13 roster update!

  • Arni

    Im just excited to see a bunch of Patriots slapped way down!

  • UnBourne

    I predict that a random player with no connection to any of the teams who played will be decreased.

  • Nick

    Julio Jones need to be bumped up 1, maybe 2 points. The dude is one of the best WR’s in the NFL.

    • Julio needs to be a 93, at least. Has needed that since the Giants game.

      • Whogivesashitaboutthefalcons

        Man he was a beast during the NFC title game! single handedly won the game for the Falcons and got them to the SuperBowl!!!

        • 49ersfan1

          nope the 49ers won the game.

  • userpicks

    Billy cundiff and Brandon Jacobs are both cut from 49ers….yet both still there in madden. Can EA fix this already??

  • DRT

    Denver Broncos

    WR Andre Caldwell – Helmet change to Air XP / Robot
    WR Trindon Holliday – Helmet change to Air XP / Robot
    CB Omar Bolden – Facemask change to Robot
    RG Chris Kuper – Facemask change to REVO Speed Full Cage (Straight)
    LOLB Von Miller – Visor change to None

  • Dandidon

    give Dez a boost 4 staying out of jail

  • Harbowl

    Kaepernick (87)should be rated higher then Alex smith (88)! Brandon Jacobs should of been long gone off the roster! Michael Crabtree should most definitely be rated (90) he has great hands and catch in traffic abilities. Frank “the tank”gore should be (95) and lemichael James should go up a point or 2 maybe (76). The o-line all need an upgrade. Best o-line and most athletic in the entire NFL. Vernon Davis enough said there. We all know he is a freak of nature. And lastly I would like to see Chris culliver get an upgrade! Oh yeah and Delanie walker should definitely be rated higher than Jacob tamme and Joel Dressen. Lets be serious!!

    How about now that the season is over adjust the Denver Broncos player ratings based on the season they had. they got dropped after 1 bad game against Baltimore. Demaryius Thomas finishes the season with 94 catches 1434 receiving yards and 10 TD’s so how does that warrant only being an 88 overall? He should be atleast a 92. Again Wesley Woodyard has 117 tackles 5.5 sacks and 3 picks but is only an 80? should be atleast an 85 based on how he played this year. to be fair EA needs to adjust the players based on their season play now that the season is over not just their usual 1 or 2 point boost or decrease.

    • JJ

      Please. The Broncs choked.

      GAME OVER.

    • Khadeem

      ill go out on a limb and say he needs to be a 90…he finds the ball, hes can tackle, cover, and comes with a good amount of sacks 4 a linebacker that rarely pass rushes

      • JJ

        Had the Broncos won that one game you guys would have demanded increases across the board. But now because you lost one game and got dropped you want take backs?


        • Khadeem

          its not about winning or losing its about this individual’s skill level…if they took von miller, peyton manning, and rahim moore i wouldnt be mad…but wesley woodyard is a beast

  • Highpriest333

    Kaepernick needs to be faster than Charles Woodson, who he made look like he was running in quicksand.

  • Highpriest333

    Kaepernick’s deep pass accuracy needs an increase.

  • GZ

    Any word on when an online franchise roster update will be out?

    • The update came out about a week or two ago. Called the end of season update when you’re starting up a new career.

      • GZ

        Cool. I appreciate it. I haven’t had the chance to get online to see it.

  • True Ratings

    Atlanta O-Line especially RG Konz need to be increased, WR Jones, WR White (Speed 93),TE Gonzalez and ROLB Weatherspoon. Down should go: LOLB Nicholas and the D-Line as a unit! DE Biermann should get slight increase.

  • 49ersfan1

    where all the haters at?

  • Amad A

    joe flacco: increase by 2
    Anquan Boldin: increase by 2
    Torrey Smith: Increase by 1
    Offensive Line: Increase by 2
    Pernell McPhee: increase by 1
    Ray Lewis: increase by 3
    Cary Williams: increase by 1
    Bernard Pollard: increase by 2
    Ed Reed: increase by 1

    • GZ

      – Ellerbe needs some love. He had a key fumble recovery and a key INT.
      – I’d like to see the O-line re-shuffled too. Put Osemele at LG and Oher back at RT

  • Quis
