Blocking isn't as important for TEs any more but it is still crucial for FBs (because most teams would rather give the ball to a RB than the slower FB - I know Reece isn't slow, but he is slower than your RBs).



He did Aaron Rodgers is rated at 98 overall, if you are referring to Brady being a 93, take a look at his last 3 seasons, last year was especially down but he hasn't been the dominant QB he has been in the past. I think he's a better QB than Wilson, so I find it odd that he is sitting at a 93 with him (pulled the same overrating crap when Eli Manning won the SB too, though I think Wilson is a more solid/consistent QB than Eli).
Tom Brady's was a top 5 QB his last 2 seasons (we can all agree that like AP he had a down year in 2013) but are you really going to say 2012 and 2011 he wasn't a top QB?

2012 - completions 5th, yds 4th, TD's - 4th, QBR - 6th
2011 - completions 3rd, yds 2nd, TD's 4th, QBR - 3rd

So again why did one bad year matter for Tom Brady but not for AP? I honestly don't care that much I edit everyone's ratings myself but the hypocrisy is hilarious from the "czar" sometimes.

I think there has already been more players revealed in Madden with ratings over 90 then there is total in MLB the Show, and we've only gone through QB, RB, and FB at this point.

I believe it's how easily (quickly)you can run left,right with the left stick alone. Or something of that nature

Re: Madden NFL 15 Top 5 Running Backs and Fullbacks

Maybe it's just me but a little shocked to see Forte that high. I agree with 90s but I don't know about top 5. Just my opinion though.

Let me present exhibit A:



There will be no need for any further evidence. The defense rests.

So now players are judge based on just one player, huh? Okay.

I guess Jarius Wright should be the best wideout in the game since he completely fooled Sherman:

Or maybe Iverson was better than Jordan:

I think more goes into determining the carrying rating, as fumbles alone do not dictate how often a guy coughs the ball up. I bet that the number of carries also plays into their ratio a bit. What do you think?

That Iverson or Wright play was with the team's entire season on the line? If Kuhn doesn't get that block on Peppers, Bears win division and make the playoffs.

Of course, this is simply one small sample of Kuhn's greatness at the fullback position. Key blocks at crucial moments.

KUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHN!

The fact that he took the depleted Pats team to the AFC Championship/Super Bowl 3 Years in a row shows me that he is just as dominant as ever, if not more. Unfortunately, he's pretty much asked to carry that entire team by himself. But hey, it's easy to hate on Tom. I wouldn't be surprised if the same happens with Russell when everyone jumps onto the next bandwagon.

And RBs are not put under nearly as much criticism as QBs. That's my guess as to why AP hasn't been dealt the same cards this time around. Either way, both are deserving of top spots.
