Re: Madden NFL 15 - Top Strong Safeties

#1 Troy isn't over the hill yet
#2 There just aren't that many good safeties

Maybe Troy was a tad high but again who are you going to put in his place??

Why do we have to put someone in his place? The other safeties are irrelevant. Troy does not deserve to be rated higher than 90.

There's no way you can give Polamalu the attributes he deserves, yet keep his rating under 90. No way. If so, you're purely gypping him of attributes just to keep his overall down so it "looks good" and "pleases the public". However, if you want him to have the abilities he does in real life, and play anywhere close to remotely like himself, than a 90+ overall rating is justified.

Do you guys care about gameplay or purely numbers?

You're right, with the EA ratings structure there is no way you could rate him what he should be rated but have him play the way he really plays. And that, my friend, is a big problem with Madden. They need to redo the way ratings are handled from top to bottom.

A better question would be, what safety CAN make that change, yet still be able to make plays and force turnovers and positively influence a floundering defense?
I knocked his coverage ability - that is where he is a liability.

Stuff the run all you can - if your secondary is shaky: you need a safety valve in coverage!

Troy is not a 90+ ballhawk; he used to be well rounded and that vetsatility shows in his move to the box (Berry reps heavily in box too for KC as a S) but Troy is basically an undersized LB now - as you put it.

I've always been a huge Troy fan since USC. At #2 IMO is too high, not the same Troy which isn't his fault, age catches up to us sooner or later.

Re: Madden NFL 15 - Top Strong Safeties

Troy was excellent in coverage last year. There's a few too many guys here looking for simply the big plays or basic stats which aren't telling enough. I guess because he's getting older calling him overrated is the cool thing to do.

Really? What games were you watching? He was horrible in coverage he was roasted plenty of times last hear. It was laughable.
