Pasta, I noticed that they Crabtree is listed as the #2 WR (X-WR) but eventually he will be moved to the #1 (Z-WR). My question is really related to the proper positions related on the field. The flanker and split-end positions are two very different positions and require a different skill set. Pasta, do you think that EA will properly implement this in future installments by taking a rating hit when switching positions?

Good point on Newman he should have received a huge decrease as he is basically letting WR's score at will. The entire secondary of Dallas is among the leagues worse. I'm not just saying this as I go by the film that I am required to watch daily. He has WR's who are not even known for speed running past him.

The whole Dallas defense should get a downgrade as they have a total of 0-sacks, 0-interceptions, & 0-fumbles recoveries in 2 full games against a bad TB team and a NYG team without any true WR's.

DeSean Jackson on that punt return looked like the fastest man alive lol. If he is a 98 then I wonder who gets a 99? A lot of people run fast on a track but under pads they don't have the same ability i.e. Heyward Bey

Jason Avant run good routes but what makes him special is that he catches anything that touches his hands. He has a hard time getting to balls but if it hits his hands he will bring it in.

Celek looks like a beast. I don't know if it's his contract year but I expect to see a huge improvement in statistics for him this year. He still is a little on the weakside in regards to run-blocking but maybe he can fix that issue throughout the season

O.Gaither issue is that he has to put too much emphasize on run stopping as he is undersized. He was never a good pass defender so he will always be exposed to playaction until he learns to read plays better.

Brown is a great corner and exceptional at the jam. IMO the Eagles play better with two jamming corners playing man. Samuel is a good player but his gambling on zone coverage cost way too many TD's. The person the eagles should have targeted was that stud out in Oakland

A.Jordan shows a lot of promise. I don't know how good he can be but he seems to have a knack for the ball and big plays. I will enjoy seeing how he plays out the season.

Q.Mikell is a great safety. If he was allowed to roam the field instead of picking up everyone else's slack he would put up Troy.P numbers.

Here's my take on some of the ratings:

1) Mario Manningham has become the #1 target for Eli so his rating should go up but an 11 point increase is a bit much I think 3-5 is more in his range.

2)Antwan Odom is a good end but not a great end. He got his 5 sacks because the 2nd most important man on the field got injured. Most teams only have 1 legit LT and if they go down the passing game is basically screwed. GB had to move the entire line around to fill the void and had 4 people playing out of position.

3)Drew Brees & Darrelle Revis are very deserving of their upgrades as they have dominated the early part of the season.

4)Hakeem Nicks shouldn't have a drop in ratings as he has barely even played yet.

5)Patrick Crayton I think we all saw this a mile away as EA love them some Cowboys. This guy dropped about 3 ball last Sunday but somehow is entitiled to an upgrade.

6) Dallas Clark should have received a bigger upgrade as he looked like Usain Bolt out there on Monday running by himself

7)Where is the downgrade for Tony Romo? At what point will EA put their feelings side for the Cowboys and adjust that team with a decrease in ratings in bad defeats like they do when they adjust their ratings higher after huge wins?

Just my take fellas

Pasta, I haven't heard anyone mention this yet or maybe I just missed it but I still see one issue with Madden franchise.

Some of the statistics are way off for RB's and WR's. I see a lot of starting RB's averaging less than 2 yards a carry and speed WR's averaging 10 yard a catch. Is anyone else having this problem? Does EA know about it or plan to fix it within the 2nd patch?

Pasta, I was just playing with the Dallas Cowboys in the new stadium using the *new* broadcast camera but had a hard time seeing the field due to the oversize projection screen. Is EA going to fix this issue?

I stand corrected. I was under the impression that you had to start a franchise after the patch for it to take into effect.

Thanks Halosniper52 for clearing that up and I apologize for any confusion that I may have caused.

Yes, for any changes from the patch to be implemented into your Franchise you would have to start a franchise after the patch update.

That is one of the reasons I have waited so long to start my franchise. Now after this weekend's roster update I will begin my long awaited franchise.

To help clarify the stop clock on the out of bounds issue here is an earlier posting:

The rules are perfectly displayed in this game. I think what you are referring to is when a player gets tackled near the boundary line all the way out of bounds and the clock keeps running. In the NFL when a player is tackled in the field on play with any portion of his body remaining in the field of play the the officials can not stop the clock For the clock to officially stop within the 2 minutes of the 1st and 2nd half the ball carrier must have his body completely out of bounds.

This is implemented well in Madden.So if you want to stop the clock within 2 minutes of the 1st and 2nd half when you have the ball then you have to get the ball-carrier's entire body out of bounds.
