Link (Note that these rosters are post draft and pre-free agency so Hasselbeck and Tatupu are still on the team and Rice, Miller, etc. aren't. Also note that the ratings may very well change in the first roster update prior to the season) I know at least some of you play the Madden series, so I thought it'd be fine to take a look at a few of the ratings: First of all it's interesting to note that the Seahawks have no 90+ overall players on their roster, they're the only team with their player ratings revealed so far that doesn't. Their highest rated players are Tatupu and Mare who are both 88 overall (Zach Miller is 89 overall but isn't technically on the roster).
One of my biggest gripes is that Earl Thomas, despite his great season last year, is only rated 82 overall. That's lower than Hasselbeck, Lawyer Milloy, Jon Ryan, BMW and others. It's six overall points lower than Eric Berry who arguably didn't even have a better year. Meanwhile, Okung is only rated 83 overall despite the fact that when he played last year, he absolutely dominated the competition.
In other news, none of their draftees look very good either. Carpenter and Moffitt are rated a respectable 76 and 74 respectively, but none of the other drafted players are nearly that good. In order of ratings: Durham, 64 overall, Maxwell, 63 overall; LeGree, 59 overall; Levingston, 57 overall; Sherman, 52 overall. Malcolm Smith, it seems, doesn't even exist in the game. Basically the rest of those guys outside Moffitt and Carpenter are absolutely useless in the game and, again, it's somewhat irritating to see the lack of actual research put into the ratings by EA. I know I'll end up buying the game anyway though. I know that the ratings don't make a huge difference, but it's still frustrating that EA doesn't put the research into making the better Seahawks p
