5. Kirk Cousins (Washington Redskins) – 84 Overall
Hey Skins fans remember whenever RGIII got hurt, Cousins would come in and throw a pick almost immediately? Hell, how bout when he threw a ball out of bounds on 4th down to lose the game once. What happened to that guy? What i’m basically trying to say is for the last two seasons Cousins has been pretty good. 29 TDs and 11 INTs last year and 23 and 9 this year while being 3rd in passing yards, but this somehow equals to an 84 rating. Surrounded by the likes of the corpse of Carson Palmer, Joe Flacco and Eli Manning. Can’t keep Kirk down forever.
4. Danielle Hunter (Minnesota Vikings) – 82 Overall
Hunter is a prime example of the awareness rating nuking their overall, because when you look deeper into his ratings you notice 87 speed, 86 block shed and 87 finesse move so why is a guy with those stats and whose 4th in the league in sacks only an 82? EA really needs to show this man some love.
3. Jadeveon Clowney (Houston Texans) – 89 Overall
Now this goes back to my Danielle Hunter mini-rant. Funny that Clowney has 83 awareness, while Hunter has 75. When Clowney was hurt 99% of his rookie year and Hunter had more sacks than him last year and this year. Hell, Clowney only has 4 this season and yet he’s an 89. Yes, people are still waiting for Clowney to be great, but we don’t need to rush it giving him a higher madden rating than he deserves.
2. Vic Beasley (Atlanta Falcons) – 79 Overall
He went from looking kind of busty in his first season, to being tied for the league lead in sacks with Von Miller. Yet he’s only a 79? EA couldn’t wait to raise Dak’s overall yet are moving at a snail’s pace when it comes to Beasley. You would figure someone who’s come on as fast as he has would rocket up the ratings boards, maybe he will eventually? I guess we’ll wait and see.
1.Philip Rivers (San Diego Chargers) – 85 Overall
Now look how they did my boy Phillip, 1 point better than Dak Prescott and 1 pt worse than Andy Dalton??? Keenan Allen has missed almost two full seasons the past two years and Phillip Rivers has STILL put up numbers. As of today, he’s 4th in the league in passing yards and he’s made some dude named Tyrell Williams look like a Pro Bowler. I feel once the Chargers stopped being the hot team in Madden Rivers rating has gotten worse and worse, yet he still balls out every single year….so what gives?
The guys ahead of him have much better weapons yet he’s on par with them statistically. There is no question that he is the Chargers offense and one of the NFL’s best QBs. So, it’s no surprise why Philip Rivers is #1 on Sports Gamers Online Top 10 WORST Madden 17 Ratings list.
