Madden 17 butchers the Rams ratings in week one roster update

0 comment

Madden once again is proving to everyone that they don’t watch Rams games and clearly have no idea what they are doing. Every week for the rest of the season Madden will release their weekly roster update. They hadn’t released one in awhile and now that the 53-man roster is finalized the roster is out. One thing I can confirm is that Nelson Spruce was added to the roster so that’s a plus. Here are the absolute worst ratings Madden gave to these Rams players.


Coty Sensabaugh






They increased Sensabaugh’s man coverage and press coverage. His overall went up too after a preseason that was full of broken coverages and bailouts from E.J. Gaines. Oh, speaking of Gaines…It gets worse much worse.


E.J. Gaines





Yeah, told you this is just bad. I know what you are thinking. Gaines probably fell due to his injury. Nope, try apparently some guy said he was apparently unaware and struggled mightily in man and zone coverage but he actually batted a ball from Nick Foles that would have been a touchdown bailing out Sensabaugh who fell out of bounds and completely was useless on the play.


Cam Thomas





Yeah, I got nothing for this… Thomas was horrendous in preseason so the fact he is even on the roster is beyond me but this seven point rating boost is ludicrous. You can also see whoever is in charge of roster editing just gave Thomas a seven point rating boost without updating any of the ratings.


All I can say is its as if the Madden ratings guys are just trying to insult Rams fans intelligence.


Here are all the Rams roster updates:


CB Trumaine Johnson 80ovr -> 81ovr (Underrated as it is)

QB Jared Goff 77ovr -> 76ovr

RT Rodger Saffold 73ovr -> 76ovr (Not the RT Havenstein is)

TE Lance Kendricks 75ovr -> 74ovr (He didn’t do anything wrong this preseason)

CB E.J. Gaines 79ovr -> 73ovr (How does he lose 6 ovr points barely playing in preseason and playing well?)

CB Coty Sensabaugh 71ovr -> 72ovr (All he did was get beat, how does he go up?)

TE Tyler Higbee 70ovr -> 71ovr

RB Malcolm Brown 66ovr -> 68ovr

RB Terrence Magee 69ovr -> 68ovr (Not on the roster anymore but all he did was overachieve how does he go down?)

TE Temarrick Hemingway 63ovr -> 62ovr

LB Josh Forrest 63ovr -> 60ovr (picking on the rookie much?)

TE aka Long Snapper Jake McQuaide 44ovr -> 43ovr (How do you even justify that?)


I don’t know what to say about some of these ratings…What are your thoughts? Did the Rams get hosed? Let us know!
