LB Dontarrious Thomas Signs with Vikings
HB Matt Forte Bears 82 to 84 In the top 2 for most impressive rookie running back.
QB Kyle Orton Bears 79 to 80 Im sure the Bears couldnt even have even expected Orton to be as poised as he has been at QB.
LB Dhani Jones Bengals 81 to 82 Your NFL leader in tackles after 6 weeks.
CB Leodis McKelvin Bills 79 to 80 1st corner selected in the draft also stars on special teams in the kick return game.
HB Michael Pittman Broncos 81 to 82 Might not be another back that runs with as much urgency. Was impressive in a start last week vs. the Jags.
K Matt Prater Broncos 78 to 82 This year has drilled 13-14 field goals. Before that he was 1-4 in his career.
LT Ryan Clady Broncos 81 to 82 - Committed his first holding penalty vs. Jacksonville, might be the most athletic offensive lineman in the league.
LB Nate Webster Broncos 79 to 80 Was thumping Jags players last week. Starting MLB for the Broncos.
RT Ryan Harris Broncos 79 to 81 Solid pass blocking RT for the Broncos.
HB Earnest Graham Bucs 84 to 85 Averaging 5.6 YPC and lined up at fullback last week due to injuries.
LT Donald Penn Bucs 80 to 82 Has excelled in taking over for Luke Petitgout in Tampa.
DT Gabe Watson Cardinals 80 to 82 Run stuffing DT for the Cardinals.
LT Mike Gandy Cardinals 89 to 92 - Underrated left tackle who played a great game vs. DeMarcus Ware. Surrendered 1.5 sacks last season.
DE Bryan Robinson Cardinals 74 to 77 In the rotation at DT and DE in the Cardinals hybrid 3-4 defense.
WR Steve Breaston Cardinals 78 to 82 Showed he has the complete game at WR in the last few weeks picking up the slack for Boldin. Caught the ball better than expected in a crowd.
DE Antonio Smith Cardinals 83 to 84 Not producing the gaudy numbers, but he is a handful at end.
LB Derrick Johnson Chiefs 93 to 94 Starting to come into his own as a future elite NFL linebacker. Playing in KC wont help, but he is all over the field.
DT Jay Ratliff Cowboys 85 to 87 Trouble maker for offenses in the middle of the Dallas defense. Can line up all over the defensive line and create problems with pressure.
S Courtney Brown Cowboys 67 to 69 Saw time on passing downs the past couple weeks due to injury.
DT Jason Ferguson Dolphins 84 to 85 Offseason acquisition from Dallas has helped sure up the run defense in the middle.
LB Joey Porter Dolphins 88 to 89 Only has 12 solo tackles, but 6.5 of them are sacks and countless other QB pressures.
T Vernon Carey Dolphins 87 to 88 Neutralized Mario Williams every time he has matched up opposite him, extremely impressive showing vs. Houston.
DT Broderick Bunkley Eagles 84 to 85 Beast of a man in the middle for Philly.
S Brian Dawkins Eagles 92 to 93 Has returned to being all over the field at safety after whispers that he had gotten old.
HB Correll Buckhalter Eagles 82 to 83 Showed again last week he is a more than capable running back when called upon.
S Quintin Mikell Eagles 85 to 86 Leads the team in tackles with a pair of INTs.
CB Brent Grimes Falcons 77 to 78 Has emerged as Atlantas best corner after being called up off the practice squad end of last season.
DT Grady Jackson Falcons 80 to 82 The Atlanta run defense was once a gaping hole up the middle, now the run defense is a somewhat respectable 20th.
LT Sam Baker Falcons 79 to 80 Pass blocking left tackle who has the feet and head to be elite.
QB Matt Ryan Falcons 83 to 84 Was extremely impressive firing the ball on a banged up Chicago secondary. Does not look like a rookie QB.
RT Tyson Clabo Falcons 78 to 80 Has stepped in at RT and has neutralized opposing ends.
DE Justin Smith 49ers 89 to 90 Never stops going and has been pressuring the QB quite often. Also has 32 tackles from the end position.
CB Corey Webster Giants 86 to 87 While Aaron Ross was falling all over his self Webster was playing solid man coverage displaying great instincts.
HB Brandon Jacobs Giants 89 to 90 Now 99 trucking with Barber. No back has as much power as Jacobs when he lowers his shoulder in a defender.
CB Rashean Mathis Jaguars 95 to 96 Brandon Marshall had 9 for 98 vs. the Jags, but none of them were vs. Mathis - Mathis locked up Marshall .
S Brian Williams Jaguars 87 to 88 Versatile safety for the Jags. Plays a lot of man coverage and is active in stopping the run.
DT Kris Jenkins Jets 93 to 94 Jets currently sport the #3 rush defense in the NFL at 2.9 YPC. The reason is the middle being contained allowing the LBs to make plays.
WR Laveranues Coles Jets 91 to 92 Tied with Cotchery at 26 receptions. Leads the team with 328 yards.
WR Jerricho Cotchery Jets 90 to 91 Leads the team with 4 receiving TDs. Has developed into a very good WR.
CB Dwight Lowery Jets 77 to 79 For my money the best rookie CB so far except for a few hiccups.
WR Randy Moss Patriots 98 to 99 Sorry Randy. Proved over the last couple games that even if the QB cant get him the ball and his effort is terrible he still can beat anyone deep. Beat the Charger defense deep at least 3 times and the QB couldnt get him the ball.
DT Kedric Golston Redskins 80 to 84 Has moved into the starting lineup on one of the better defenses in the NFL. #6 rush defense in the NFL.
CB Carlos Rogers Redskins 89 to 90 Is all the way back from a knee injury. An impressive season so far.
LB Jonathan Vilma Saints 92 to 93 Also looks back from a bad knee injury. Displays top notch instincts.
WR Lance Moore Saints 79 to 80 Appears to be a legitimate NFL receiver and not some product of Drew Brees.
QB Drew Brees Saints 95 to 96 Received a boost in arm strength in how the Saints have been airing the ball out the past couple seasons. Does not have the weak arm some suspected from his career in college and his start in San Diego.
DT Craig Terrill Seahawks 76 to 78 Only good thing to say about the Seahawks in Week 6, relentless in trying to get off blocks.
HB Mewelde Moore Steelers 78 to 80 Extremely versatile player in his first year in Pittsburgh. Filled in for Willie Parker and might have to do it a few more weeks.
HB Steve Slaton Texans 80 to 82 Got some more speed after he displayed his burst a few more times vs. Miami.
G Mike Brisiel Texans 77 to 78 Came out of nowhere last year to finish the season at RG, continues to start there and does a nice job run blocking.
T Eric Winston Texans 85 to 87 Locked up Matt Roth and whoever else lined up against him. The Texans gave him a contract extension and its easy to see why.
HB Chris Johnson Titans 82 to 83 Recovering in his bye week after not faring as well vs. grown men in Baltimore.
DE Kyle Vanden Bosch Titans 93 to 94 One of those high motor guys. Never stops in trying to get to the QB.
DT Tommie Harris Bears 96 to 94 Bears run defense isnt what it was, and whether its injuries or what he isnt either.
WR Earl Bennett Bears 76 to 74 Cant get on the field in Chicago. Very polished product coming out of college.
HB Chris Perry Bengals 81 to 79 For my money the worst running back so far this year. Averaging 2.6 YPC with 5 fumbles. Bring on Cedric Benson.
G Andrew Whitworth Bengals 86 to 84 Got a nice contract extension and has got lazy maybe. The Bengals cant run or pass block.
LB Kamerion Wimbley Browns 87 to 86 Has done virtually nothing since his promising rookie year. 6 sacks in his last 21 games is unacceptable for a player whose job is to rush the QB.
LB Willie McGinest Browns 85 to 84 Heard his name once in the Monday night game but this guy is old and shouldnt be counted on for too much production.
HB Edgerrin James Cardinals 91 to 89 Behind Chris Perry this guy is in the conversation for most unimpressive at HB. Hightower looks twice as quick, James is incredibly slow at this point in his career.
CB Antonio Cromartie Chargers 92 to 91 Still a work in progress in man coverage. Can be beaten easily cause he is so eager to make a big play.
G Kris Dielman Chargers - 92 to 91 The famed left side of the Charger line isnt blowing people off the ball like in years past.
TE Antonio Gates Chargers 98 to 97 Injuries have cost this guy the ability to get open. Takes forever to get going and to change directions.
DT Ron Edwards Chiefs 83 to 78 Completely out of the rotation at DT in the favor of going young in KC. Played pretty well last season.
FS Jarrad Page Chiefs 83 to 81 Habitual tackle whiffer leading to big plays.
LB Donnie Edwards Chiefs 92 to 90 Is banged up and has been out the past few weeks. Not a stretch to say his time in KC is up after this season.
TE Tony Gonzalez Chiefs 98 to 97 We cant remember how good you are because of the ineptness of the Chiefs passing game.
TE L.J. Smith Eagles 85 to 83 Wants to be more involved in the offense? Difficult when LJ is usually hurt.
CB Chris Houston Falcons 78 to 77 Extremely raw still trying to play man coverage which is supposed to be his strength. Very similar to his speedy predecessor at corner at Arkansas Ahmad Carroll.
FB Tony Richardson Jets 90 to 88 Thought something was up with Minnesota made no attempt to resign him, appears to be old.
C Dominic Raiola Lions 87 to 85 Part of the giant mess known as the Detroit offensive line.
CB Brian Kelly Lions 82 to 80 Is in and out of the starting rotation in Detroit which says enough. Cant really be counted on in man coverage.
G Stephen Peterman Lions 80 to 77 Has been out with injury and didnt do a whole lot when he was in there.
S James Sanders Patriots 86 to 83 Has not been involved at all in pass coverage.
S Michael Huff Raiders 87 to 85 Is apparently a candidate to be benched in Oakland. Has not made any big plays in his time in the NFL.
DT Rocky Bernard Seahawks 84 to 83 Seahawks cant really stop anyone on the ground or anywhere else for that matter.
CB Kelly Jennings Seahawks 87 to 86 Solid corner who has beaten deep too often this year. Now benched and plays in nickel situations.
QB Charlie Frye Seahawks 80 to 77 His lack of poise was startling for a QB that has been in Seattle for over a year now. Looked bad vs. a so so Green Bay defense.
S Deon Grant Seahawks 87 to 85 Has not been good this year in pass coverage.
S Brian Russell Seahawks 86 to 85 No INTs on the year and hasnt teamed up with Deon Grant to be the safeties people expected.
DT Amobi Okoye Texans 92 to 89 Might be in a sophomore slump after big things were expected of him. In and out of the lineup.
C Matt Birk Vikings 95 to 93 The holes arent there in the middle for Peterson.
G Anthony Herrera Vikings 88 to 87 Has struggled so far, especially in pass blocking.
RT Ryan Cook Vikings 87 to 84 Has not been playing very well, and looked completely inept vs. Detroit and Jared DeVries.
P Mat McBriar Cowboys IR
HB Brian Leonard Rams - IR
S Gerald Alexander Lions IR
QB Jon Kitna Lions - IR
G Marshall Yanda Ravens IR
LB Tavares Gooden Ravens - IR
T Drew Radovich Vikings IR
WR Roy Williams Cowboys 7 years

Re: EA Sports Madden 09 Update # 8
Whom ever does these updates should be fired.
Tony Ganzalez, the best tight end of all time goes down a point because his team sucks, yeah that makes sense. If he had been traded to the packers would he have gone up a point?
