"If we didn’t have a cap on it, Watt might be rated somewhere north of 105 OVR"

Then reduce all ratings to reflect that skills gap. Why is this so difficult?

Re: Madden NFL 15 Top Defensive Ends

Hmmm I wonder if Greg Hardy is getting the Josh Gordon treatment here and being held off the list due to the legal problems.

Re: Madden NFL 15 Top Defensive Ends

I know they haven't revealed all of the ratings yet but I'm hoping that they separated the elite players from the ones that are not that great. There shouldn't be a lot of guys who are in the high 90's since I think that is only meant for the absolute best.

Re: Madden NFL 15 Top Defensive Ends

Madden rates players based on their ability to current players meaning 99 is the best in the league, not the perfect player.

As everyone says, they NEED to make it 99 is the best player ever. 90's would be elite, 80's great, 70s starter, 60's borderline starter, 50's and under.

They shouldn't do it. The guy guilty verdict is temp. He is going to court next off season in front a jury. Until then there is no way EA should give Hardy a middle finger. The guy had back to back double sack seasons. Last season he had 15 sacks and 56 tackles. Wilkerson shouldn't even be on the top 6. Hardy at the very least should be number 5 or 6 on the list. I don't understand why EA screwed Hardy out of the top 6 spots.

Side note : Why should Hardy off the field problems have to do with the ratings in a Madden game. It shouldn't period. Ratings only should have to do with on the field work. And he is one of the best DE in league right now. And if he has another 10+ sack season and is not found guilty next off season. Be sure by next year whether it is the Panthers or any other team. Hardy will be the highest paid DE in the league by this time next year. You can take that to the bank.

I agree that, assuming the legal stuff has no factor, Hardy belongs on the list big time. I think it goes beyond even sacks. He is super disruptive. A lot of people just look at sacks and that's it, those are the people who think Shaun Phillips was as good a player as JJ Watt last season. There is much more to it than that. I think BOTH of Carolina's ends are superb, I've watched them consistently wreck havoc on almost a play-by-play basis in multiple games.
