Madden 08 Power Rankings (32-28)

Posted May 12th, 2007 at 4:31 am

Over the course of the next couple weeks I’ll be posting up my power rankings for Madden 08 based on the current NFL team rosters. The first set begins with the bottom five (the weakest teams heading into the season).

32- Buffalo Bills

The Bills were a decent team last year, however their off-season has really been a tough one. Losses include Willis McGahee, Nate Clements, and Takeo Spikes. Replacing them with rookies isn’t going to get the job done in Madden. They did do a good job of improving the offensive line, despite that Buffalo has earned the bottom spot in the rankings.

31- Oakland Raiders

Through the draft they were able to start building for the future, but it isn’t going to pay off for this year. The defense is solid, but the offense is going to be significantly worse after trading Randy Moss away.

30- Houston Texans

Bringing in Ahman Green and Matt Schaub makes the Texans a more viable team. However there are just too many holes elsewhere to believe they’ve made a move to the next level in Madden.

29- Tampa Bay Buccaneers

So many QBs, yet none are that great. Actually Jeff Garcia will be an improvement due to his mobility. Cadillac Williams and Joey Galloway help to make the Bucs a sleeper choice but overall they don’t match up to most of the other teams.

28- Tennessee Titans

Having the cover athlete Vince Young is a boost of course, as he’ll get favorable ratings because of it. Outside of that, the team is worse than last year. Travis Henry and Drew Bennett are gone, and Pacman Jones is suspended for the season so he won’t be on the roster. If it wasn’t for Young, the Titans would arguably be the worst team in Madden this year.
