Ravens Madden 2010 Player Ratings


Madden 10 is out.  Or maybe it’s Madden 2010.  Whatever you want to call it.  And with a new Madden game comes new player ratings.  The only reason I found this blog last October was by searching for Joe Flacco’s Madden rating, and now I’m the lead blogger on the site, and I’m sure other people have stories about how Madden has changed something about their fanhood.  It’s the world’s best selling video game, and in England, once I mentioned American Football, people asked if I played “that Madden game.”  Now to the numbers…

The Ravens have an overall team rating of 82, which is good for 11th in the league rating-wise.  The top 5 players are Ed Reed (99), Ray Lewis (97), Le’Ron McClain (92), Terrell Suggs (90), Haloti Ngata (90).  I’m really excited to see Ngata at the 90 rating mark, because believe it or not, I know people who think that the league’s best players are the ones with the highest Madden ratings, so to see Ngata up at the top of DLs would maybe get him his well-deserved recognition.  Here are the ratings by position:


  1. Joe Flacco (82)
  2. Troy Smith (59) ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
  3. John Beck (48)

  3. Samari Rolle (75)
  4. LaDarius Webb (71)
  5. Chris Carr (65)
  6. Frank Walker (49)


  1. Ed Reed (99)
  2. Dewan Landry (71)
  3. Tom Zbikowski (63)
  4. Haruki Nakamura (61)


  1. Steve Hauschka (59)


  1. Sam Koch (86)

My impressions of the ratings are as follows: Fabian Washington should be the #1 corner, but as he says: “I dont’t control that”. Sam Koch is one of the league’s best punters and should be rated above 86, in my opinion as a huge fan of his punting.  I feel that Hauschka’s rating is about right, as he is yet to prove himself.  Troy Smith is incredibly low at 59, and so is John Beck at 48, but their is a quite different ratings system this year, where players are rated much lower than in other editions of the game, with an average player rating of 70.  Ed Reed definitely deserves his 99, being the best safety of his generation.

Also, an update on the four receivers trying out: Along with Drew Bennett and D.J. Hackett, Joe Horn, best known for pulling out his cell phone after scoring a touchdown with the Saints has also been revealed as another receiver working out with the team.  I don’t know if any of them will be able to replace Derrick Mason, but it’s worth a shot, right?
