Was just thinking about that.  In madden Vick is a monster so I get it.  If you were going best qb for atl I think Matt Ryan takes that crown.

Yeah, he wasn't close to the best QB that Falcons ever had.  Weird.

If you are going by single year then Vick is the ATL King. For Buffalo the surprise guy might Bryce Paup because that one year he was awesome.

Bills vs Jets shouldn't be that big of a contest. Their best QB is a guy who threw more interceptions than TD's and lost more games than he won.

Vick is like the best player in Madden history, but are they basing it on Madden ratings and not real life? How do they include guys from before Madden was a thing?

It really doesn’t matter.....does it?

 

edit:  this is something to pass time during a quarantine.  It’s not to be taken so seriously.  Very soon, no one will remember this

Bills are going to be a very fun team to play with. Several players should get bumps in ratings. Diggs is a 93 now.

Asking this question is serious enough.  I don’t think they even have the answer for this.   How do they include guys from before madden was a thing?  They just put them on the teams and don’t think twice about it.  
 

its madden. Vick is the QB for the all time falcons team.  Stipulations and rules need not apply

I wasn't criticizing their methodology, I was asking actual questions because I was curious and interested. I wondered if someone who knew more about what they are doing knew the answers.

If we beat the jets, its going to be Bills v Pats in round 2.

Charles Clay is our best TE ever? He's ranked 84.

Would prob pick Cribbs over McGahee, but I'm sure there's a bias towards players who played when the game existed (and player already instantiated in game)

I started thinking of all of the TE's over the years and man it would be nice to have Knox develop into a stud.

I'm too old for Madden but this does seem like a fun thing to follow for those staying at home.

 

But, man, I have a lot of problems with the player ratings.

I know. 

He definitely has flashed the potential. We'll see .

 

Hope Kroft can do anything.  I don't remember him catching a ball besides the Pitt game (huge catch nonetheless)

Here's the Bills roster they are using. I think there's some questionable inclusions (Willis McGahee!?):

 

Jim Kelly, QB (91 OVR)

OJ Simpson, RB (97 OVR)

Thurman Thomas, RB (94 OVR)

Willis McGahee, RB (86 OVR)

Andre Reed, WR (92 OVR)

Eric Moulds, WR (87 OVR)

Lee Evans, WR (86 OVR)

Elbert Dubenion, WR (85 OVR)

Charles Clay, TE (84 OVR)

Joe DeLamielleure, OL (91 OVR)

Kent Hull, OL (90 OVR)

Ruben Brown, OL (89 OVR)

Will Wolford, OL (88 OVR)

Howard Ballard, OL (87 OVR)

Bruce Smith, DL (98 OVR)

Pat Williams, DL (89 OVR)

Kyle Williams, DL (89 OVR)

Jerry Hughes, DL (83 OVR)

Takeo Spikes, LB (89 OVR)

Cornelius Bennett, LB (87 OVR)

Sam Cowart, LB (82 OVR)

Butch Byrd, CB (92 OVR)

Nate Clements, CB (87 OVR)

Tre'Davious White, CB (85 OVR)

Micah Hyde, FS (86 OVR)

Jordan Poyer, SS (80 OVR)

 

Players I particularly don't think belong include: Willis McGahee, Lee Evans, Sam Cowart, and Jerry Hughes. Some notable players not included, in my opinion (not sure how they would get Madden ratings for some of these, but they have OJ somehow): Tom Sestak, Fred Smerlas, Mike Stratton, Nate Odomes, Billy Shaw. Even Mario Williams should be in over Jerry Hughes. Hughes has never had double digit sacks.
