NFL Madden 2009: Really Bad Madden Ratings for AFC Edition

Greg TrippiediCorrespondent IJune 27, 2008

IGN has the 2009 version of the Madden Ratings available for public viewing. I'm going to take it team by team and pick one player that EA clearly has overrated, and one player who is clearly underrated. Let's face it, coming up with deadly accurate ratings for 1600+ entries is an impossible task, but one could assume that EA always has room to improve.
