After being signed by the Miami Dolphins August 7th, EA Sports announces the Madden NFL 18 player ratings for quarterback Jay Cutler.
When QB Ryan Tannehill re-injured his ACL in training camp, Dolphins’ playoffs hopes this year became a distant memory. The success of an NFL franchise relies heavily on the person under center. Matt Moore is not the answer to compete with the New England Patriots in the AFC East. Dolphins head coach, Adam Gase, reacted swiftly and asked his friend Jay Cutler if he wanted to take his talents to South Beach.
Tannehill is a viable dual threat in Madden NFL 18. The former wide receiver’s Throw on the Run in Madden NFL 18 is an 86. He can also make accurate short to intermediate passes. Hence, why all his throwing ratings are in the 80s. Jay Cutler brings a different style of play when used in Madden. While he can improvise and make throws on the move, Cutler prefers to stay in the pocket and show off his cannon of an arm.
While we do not have the specific details, EA posted in a blog that The Vanderbilt alumni was given a 97 Throw Power rating. Cutler is second behind Lions QB Matthew Stafford with a 98. However, his accuracy numbers are lower than Tannehill. Teaming with his long time friend and now head coach could change that. Cutler threw 21 TDS and just 11 INT in 2015 with Gase as his offensive coordinator in Chicago. This touchdown to interception ratio was the highest in Cutler’s 11 year career. His new offensive weapons Jarvis Landry, Julius Thomas and Jay Ajayi also played well under Gase. So look for those numbers to increase in the next roster update.
