Why does the player's overall rating change when I start my career?

I really do not understand this. I downloaded the new roster update, saw the ratings for my favorite team, and was okay with it. Now I just started my Connected Franchise in Owner mode and nearly every single player on my roster has a different rating. It really makes no sense and I'd like someone to answer this for me. The same thing happened in Madden 13.

Don't quote me on this, but the ratings you see before you start your career are ratings used in Play Now. Ratings are changed for playing in CCM.

I will see if I can find the article or thread that explains this.

It has to do with the coaches scheme. Coaches scheme doesn't effect play now. I believe.

Thanks, I'd really love to know the reason. Because honestly, it doesn't make sense to me. I thought it was a glitch in Madden 13. It appears not to be apparently.

it has to do with your player schemes that you pick. Different player schemes can raise and lower their OVR.

Re: Why does the player's overall rating change when I start my career?

I should also note that some of the players that were updated with their real current positions, are back to their old positions once I started the franchise. Like for example- Desmond Bishop was listed as a MLB, but currently he's playing OLB. Now, when I downloaded the EA roster update, it updated him to OLB. I saved it, and I'm using it for the franchise, but now he's back to MLB! WTF. This is infuriating.

How does that explain the positions being automatically switched back then for some players? That shouldn't affect it whatsoever. And why in the hell am I unable to edit a player's position? I thought they changed that this year? You can switch player's positions to whatever you want, even defense to offense if i wanted?
