Awareness will mean more then ever this year. It should effect the overall rating of each player.

Weapons were put in for the casual gamers, people that don't know much about all the NFL teams. Do not forget the fact that many people on this forum, mostly Americans, were against the weapons icons, and in Madden 10 weapons will not be showing up on the field (as default).

I would love it if this were implemented. Personally I don't think they should get rid of the overall, but if they wanted to make it an option I see no problem with that. But to take it to the next level and have the overall change depending on the system would be great.

Re: Get rid of the "Overall" rating.

I've long been a proponent of scrapping the traditional OVR ratings (optional). It's absolutely ridiculous to see a free agent list sorted by an imaginary OVR rating... how about stats? In real life, yes, scouts do give players grades in some way, so it's realistic to have numbers... but in Madden you could see the "best" receiver on the market having virtually no stats, with several "worse" players having productive careers. That should factor into the decision making process of computer controlled teams, and IMO it should also factor into player decisions.

I realize the overall rating will never completely disappear, but I do think it should be an option available for those who wanted to eliminate it. I also think it would be nice to get rid of the OVR rating during free agency. Players could be sorted initially by productivity, then you could then sort them again by whichever attribute you wanted. It may take a little time to figure out who the ideal FA acquisition would be, but I really don't think it would add that much time to it.

Maybe you could try expressing (in an intelligent and respectful manner) why you like it, and why the OP's idea of removing it is a bad one.
