By looking at these ratings it appears they still have the stretched ratings from last year. At first glance these ratings look very good IMO.

What is the "SWG" rating? Is it swagger or something? Brandon Marshall is high in it, but I dunno what it stands for.

It must me that 85 swagger rating that's tilting the scale.

Just off first blush, Ricky Williams 71 toughness - 78 Injury. Damn, I know he had a bad streak of injuries but I thought he held up pretty well last year.

Bart Scott -73 Swagger??? Um, NO, he should at least be in the high 80s. He was a Raven for seven years for goddsake.

Jim Leonhard 45 Swagger rating... LOL!

I really want to know what this rating does. And does Rex Ryan one?

At the bottom it says that it is swagger. What will this rating do? Maybe they will do more celebrations after a play or something?

I really, really love that the stretched ratings were brought back this year. There is so much to criticize about this game but the devs deserve credit for a fantastic decision and execution here.

Lol Swagger rating, I will be pissed if it has lil effect on the game.
# 7 bo4345 @ 06/28/10 01:27 PM
@RayAllen20 Oh thanks, I'm impatient and usually just skim stuff and miss little details.

Swagger might be one of those ratings that don't mean anything, like toughness.

From what I understand, toughness is how fast the player is able to come back from an injury.

Only in Madden is 12 td's and 20 ints better than 12 td's 14 ints.
# 11 ComfortablyLomb @ 06/28/10 01:37 PM
Maybe swagger is like an animation trigger? Just a guess but it would see some cooler catches, stiff arms, sacks, etc. from guys with a high rating.
# 12 PantherBeast_OS @ 06/28/10 01:45 PM
Nice ratings. I see old panthers DT Kris Jenkins is a 92 overall. Nice. I might have to trade for him and bring him back to carolina.

This screen shot looks sick

Shonn G. has an awareness rating of 68? That's absurd.

And the whole swagger rating thing is the dumbest arcade-ish thing I've heard in a long time. Your potential is your potential. If Chris Johnson is a 99 for speed, then he is a 99 for speed. I thought we were beyond this "turbo boost" thing. Your rating is what it is. If he can get to a 110, then that should be his rating.

It's kind of like a confidence rating. I'm reliably informed that players with any 99's can rise as high as 110 (eg-C Johnson speed can go from 99 to 110 for a short period).
This kind of sounds like the composure thing that NCAA had. I remember NCAA 08 had a "motivation" system where if your top player was tearing it up, it would raise the level of play of everyone on the field with him. I like out of the box thinking. This might be interesting if it's not overdone.

What a joke, the ratings guy should be tarred and feathered. Missing players, illogical ratings, and player to player comparisons that make no sense.

Henne > Sanchez is fairly obvious if you bothered to watch one game.

Greg Camarillo - 50 catches ZERO drops - catch 83
Braylon Edwards - 35 catches 4 drops - catch 77
That makes complete sense. Not droping any passes is only a little better than being stone hands.

Will Allen, Davis, Smith > Cromartie and Bell > Leonhard.

Not that any of this matters as most of the ratings will continue to do nothing.
# 17 angels eclipse7 @ 06/28/10 02:48 PM
I would take Sanchez over Henne but they are both way overated. And yes, the ratings are still stretched but not near as much as intended. EA posted a blog (when first announcing the new rating system) about how 85+ is a pro bowl caliber player. Well according to that and EA's 2011 ratings, the Jets have 3 pro bowl caliber WRs. Holmes should be the only pro bowl caliber wide out they have. Oh, and while just about every single player is overated, Bess actually needs to be a little bit higher. Somewhere from 75-79.

edit: and Sanchez should be rated anywhere from 71-79. But his potential should be A. He is rated way to high right now, but the guy does have a lot of potential.
# 18 Cobra84 @ 06/28/10 03:06 PM
Sanchez doesn't have "A" potential. Taking the #1 rushing and defensive team to a 8-8 (Colts game is a loss if they actually tried) record is nothing to be proud of. Stafford had nearly the same QB rating and he has to play for the Lions!

I don't think you know how bad Cromartie really is. Allen didn't and didn't play enough to get burned a ton.

Playoffs? Bengals are overrated, Colt defense sucks and Sanchez sucked against the Chargers. Sanchez had no chance without the best OL, rushing, and defense.
