I believe his rating this year will reflect that.
That's probably fair it's just weird that he actually went down from his end-of-year madden 18 rating

Re: 7 Players Are Rated an Overall 99 in Madden NFL 19, Your Thoughts?

The rosters are always going the be broken because they rate them according to hype as well as "right now"
Someone could be given 99 elusiveness. If we take Barry Sanders as the most elusive running back of all time, it would realistically mean that a player given 99 elusiveness should be on a Sanders level. Which just isn't the case in today nfl. It should be based on all time.
But the hype is the biggest issue in the game. If I remember correctly, there were glaring issues on the Bears taking Tribusky, as there were concerns on his arm strength being too low to make the throws in the windy city and that Mahomes big arm made more sense. But M18 rates MT as a 93 THP? (I think) and Mahomes a 94? (again I may be wrong, but they were much closer than they perhaps should have been)
The fact that these 7 are rated 99 OVR is just, yet again, the biggest reason that we need roster editors and XP sliders

No player in the modern day NFL should be rated a 99. Looks like I'll be editing my own roster again this year, that is if I even buy 19.

Okay I'm gonna run from angry Packer fans now.
LOL. I'd put him ahead of Favre and by a ton on interceptions alone. Favre get's kudos for being an ironman.

Can't blame Rodgers for Ted Thompson. lol

I hate these debates, so subjective. lol

All it means is they're the best in the game at that position. Making someone a 99 in Madden doesn't make him "the best ever." It just means the standard by which OVR is calculated is different.

A player's OVR is 99... if I change 1 number in the DB, I can turn that into an 89 without touching the player's attributes at all. I could turn a 65 into a 99 that way as well. You could rate every player in the game 25 in every attribute and I could make them all 99s by tuning the OVR. OVR has no effect on gameplay, and it isn't even a real reflection of the guy's ratings. That's tuned to make sure someone's a 99, even if his attributes don't compare to some retired Hall of Famer. If I'm being honest, we wanted to get rid of it in '13 and replace it something less fine and transparently relative, but marketing was afraid people will freak if they didn't get their precious 99s.
Quoting again.

I'm going to start #refer to AJ's post and ask people to make sure to read before posting.

Key point in post above: OVR has no effect on gameplay, not a reflection on the players ratings!

So, in other words, who cares?

a lot of position ovrs are impacted by inj and tgh, gronks certainly should be. if i update a PS players tgh from 79 to 85 it increases their ovr. gronk has an injury history so to my mind cant be 99.
Adam, whilst i understand OVR doesn't affect gameplay, it affects everything in roster management though, i pay more if ovr is higher, not if production is consistent or on the up or enables the team to work better as a unit.
udfas get more money, not the league minimum, if get signed as a fa in the season and wow the moeny they get is linked to their ovr, even comparing a 68 wr with a 71 wr

Aside from Brady I'm cool with all of these. Brady has never had elite arm strength and he's regressed a tad in his zip on the ball. Plus, as you can see with that awful QB screen from the superbowl, he can barely move in the open field. Other than that...no complaints here.
