    I'm curious how the ratings are created; power ranking per ESPN analyst have different perspective. It will be interesting to see what really manifest in game.

    The Packers Made the playoffs in the Wildcard round how are they the best team in Madden 12 please tell me…Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Greg Jennings,n Charles Woodson shood be the only players that shood b 90 overall…no one else…i wood understand 87 overall but not 92 bcuz they cant beat the jets or patriots…we all kno that…the steelers are at the correct overall bcuz they dominated that season and playoffs…the packers got lucky…honestly

      Wow u obviously really didnt pay attention last season the packers were riddled wit alot of injuries n they get all those players back they made it as a wild card but fully healthy they r clearly top 3 team in the league…n im a giants fan

      … Really? As many have pointed out already… The Packers played with half of there starters on IR and still did very well. Not many teams could ever fathom overcoming that much damage to a teams roster. By the way… the Jets Fan? The Packers can't beat the jets? They shut you out on your own turf. How easy it is to forget an ass kicking. The Packers may not have a roster of 10 guys 90+ but they sure have more then the jets, and they have plenty of strong depth behind that. Oh, You forgot Nick Collins in your Packers above 90 ranking.

      Packers beat the Jets last year and lost to the Patriots in a close game with there 2nd string quarterback in. They never were down by more then 7 points in any game last year. Not to mention, they lost a handful of key starters, Ryan Grant, Jermichael Finley ( who should be above a 90 overall along with Nick Collins, who makes the pro-bowl every year), Morgan Brunette, Brad Jones, and Nick Barnett. You obviously didn’t watch the Atlanta game if you think it was lucky the Packers won the superbowl.

    • pack is back

      Aug 19, 2011 at 7:56 pm

      i wouldnt be talkin because the pack shut u out on your turf

      I'm a Bears fan, and I believe they are a 92 overall team. They can easily beat the Jets or the Patriots. The Packers should be better than the Steelers because the packers dominated that game, and most of the playoffs.

      • MANJ

        Aug 29, 2011 at 12:31 am

        If bears are a 92 Overall team…Patriots should be a 99.

      • Dick from Derry

        Aug 29, 2011 at 6:27 am

        Hey JBA,,, where were you last season when the Patriots kicked the crap out of duh bearz? Sleeping I guess,,, “WAKE-UP”

      • FootballFanatic

        Aug 29, 2011 at 5:43 pm

        They really didn't dominate it. At all. It could have gone either way.

    • Franz Dumke

      Aug 23, 2011 at 9:54 am

      Actually they did beat the jets last year. They WON THE SUPERBOWL with more players on injured reserve than any other team in the league and now have most of those players back, how could they not be ranked # 1.

    • asdasd

      Aug 23, 2011 at 12:16 pm

      i somewhat agree put the only good steelers are the LB's and palamolu rothlisburgers is a scrambler and the makings for a good qb

    • steven

      Aug 23, 2011 at 10:54 pm

      hahah packers beat the jets…9 to zip last season!…do your homework before you post stupid things, pack lost to patriots by like 4 and may i remind you rodgers was not playing in that game. jermichael finley is over 90….ryan grant is over 90…raji possibly…..PACK FOR LIFE!!

    • FootballFanatic

      Aug 29, 2011 at 5:41 pm

      The packers are #1 because they won the super bowl.
      The steelers are #2 because they lost the super bowl.

      Its pretty obvious why they are the top teams.
      I wouldn’t say the Packers are the best team in the league (but right up there with Pit, NE, IND, BAL, PHI) but they won it all and deserve it.

    • Collins91

      Aug 30, 2011 at 12:42 pm

      Packers can't beat the jets or patriots?? shut out the jets last year and only lost to NE on the last drive of the game and that was with no Aaron Rodgers playing not to mention all of the other injuries. Packers beat the top 3 teams in the NFC all on the road and deserved to beat the Steelers in the SB, but for WR drops they could have pulled away early.

    • Jests Suk

      Sep 1, 2011 at 1:35 pm

      Apparently you forgot GB coming into New Jersey and shuting out the Jets at home. They cant beat them but they did beat makes no sense at all

    • packallday

      Sep 3, 2011 at 8:59 am

      u dont get lucky when u win a title and loose over half ur starters during the run, dont hate homie, packers are the best in the league and we have the ring to prove it. step down to reality kid

    • Manfred

      Nov 30, 2011 at 1:49 pm

      this is an old comment but i must say this, the packers are now 11-0, so i think the 92 may be pretty accurate

  3. Aaron

    Aug 8, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    Add to that, Josh Sitton, Tramon Williams, Nick Collins, AJ Hawk, Jermichael Finley, Chad Clifton, BJ Raji. They are number 1 cause they won the superbowl with 15 guys on IR. Callin that lucky? They are the team to beat this year. They beat the jets last year (shutout) and almost beat the patriots with Matt Flynn at QB. Watch the games.

    • casey stratton

      Aug 11, 2011 at 3:38 pm

      Totally correct.. the jets fans is a complete moron. if he watched games or even payed attention to football. he wouldve relized that the packers were by far the best team in football

    • Hallo

      Aug 15, 2011 at 3:10 pm

      I don't want to live in a world where BJ Raji is a guy that "should" be rated 90 in a Madden game. That's just bonkers.

    • RellJetsAllDay

      Aug 30, 2011 at 5:27 am

      im a jets fan and even i knew that about the shutout and the matt flynncuz i watched both games n we couldnt even move on their defense!

  4. WGA

    Aug 8, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    How are the Jets and Falcons rated equally?? hahahahha…Matty "Not-so-Ice" Ryan and crew? Did they reach the NFC CHAMP game? I thought that was Bears vs Packers last year.

    • Scott

      Aug 22, 2011 at 4:45 am

      Are you kidding me? I think the record speaks for itself (13-3), they played an incredible regular season and got shut down by an "On Fire" team that went on to win the super bowl. The Jets' rating is the one that is to high.

    the vikings got a 74 rating how are the cowboys rated higher then vikings

    • Yanman

      Aug 16, 2011 at 5:40 pm

      Cuz cowboys are the shit

      • das

        Aug 25, 2011 at 11:30 am

        but the vikings beat the cowboys and have more talent than them. adrian peterson best running back in the league percy harvin one of the bessst if not the best kick returners in the league, jared allen a great defensive end, sidney rice even though he was injured and winfield remeber the nfc north defensive player of the year twice

        • Jon

          Aug 28, 2011 at 5:24 pm

          They only beat the cowboys beacuse of the over celebration touchdowns the cowboys did and 2nd string quater back jon kitna was in and wade philips was coaching… haha


          Aug 29, 2011 at 3:25 pm

          pssst they on't have sidney rice. shows how much you know. Im glad ur not the one in charge of anything.


          Aug 29, 2011 at 3:26 pm

          The Cowboys beat them just the other day. Looks like you don't have a leg to stand on heheheheheheheheheheh

    • Jack

      Aug 21, 2011 at 10:52 pm

      not as a coyboy fan but as a football fan it is becuase of the talent on the coboys than on the vikings

    • mich

      Aug 24, 2011 at 5:05 am

      cowboys suck!!!!!!!! so i don't know.

    • HowBoutDemCowboys

      Aug 29, 2011 at 3:23 pm

      The only reason why they are rated higher is because they are better. I can't think of a better reason.

  6. justin

    Aug 10, 2011 at 6:40 pm

    jets fan your retarded the packers are the best team in the nfl because of the talent they have and the fact that we almost beat the patriots with a backup quarterback do you actually think that we would have lost if we had rodgers in there.

    • asdasd

      Aug 23, 2011 at 12:17 pm

      without rogders theyd suck teriblely

  7. gary

    Aug 10, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    Greenbay is rated at the top because they play in the most competitive division in all the NFL.

    • Wes

      Aug 22, 2011 at 8:29 am

      GB moved to the NFC South? Was this in the news!?

      • jeff

        Aug 29, 2011 at 9:53 am

        NFC East is the most competitive hands down. Cowboys, Eagles, and Giants. one wins the devision, and usually the other two fight for one of the wildcard spots.

    • GoRodgersILUcutie

      Aug 29, 2011 at 3:29 pm

      I'd have to lean towards the NFC east as the most competitive division in the nfl. I'm a die hard Packers fan always and forever. We might have the a good division but not the best. Im just an honest man.

    • Ravens4Life

      Aug 30, 2011 at 9:05 am

      Really? The most competitive division? With a beat down Vikings team, A young Detriot team and Bears team that can't generate offense no matter what they do..NFC East has been the most competitive for years my friends. Stop playing so much madden and actually do some

    • bertis

      Sep 1, 2011 at 12:51 pm

      look at this guy hes telling jokes now. the most competitive divisions are the afc north and east and the nfc south.

  8. chaz

    Aug 10, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    all of you are stupid 1 the packers do not play in the most competetiv division 2 they wont even be the top team after the first update the eagles will be then u guys will be on here complaning about them being over rated when there not and 3 the packers are not that good if they were they would not had a wild card to get into the playoffs

    • casey stratton

      Aug 11, 2011 at 3:40 pm

      they won the superbowl you fucking moron

    • guy

      Aug 19, 2011 at 7:59 pm

      well the packers had 16 players out for the season including one of the best TEs in the league

    • Chad Ward

      Aug 28, 2011 at 11:22 am

      i think your the one that is stupid. you might wanna do some research before you make idiotic comments like packers are not going to be the top team. For one they won the superbowl last year and they lost nobody from that team. Oh ya, and about why they were a wild card team, it might be because they didn't have ryan grant and jermichael finley, their starting tailback and tight end. And who played in the NFC Championship game last year? Green Bay(NFC Central) and Chicago(NFC Central). So maybe the NFC East is not as good as everyone thinks.

  9. Steve

    Aug 11, 2011 at 12:33 am

    Chaz the packers should be the top team bc they won the superbowl with many starters that were injured including grant, Finley, burnet, barnett, and jones. Clay also played with a fracture the second half of the season and still got 13.5 sacks. The eagles have yet to play 1 game so idk how they can have the best overall even after the update just bc they got big name free agents. The eagles also did not improve any of their weak positions which were their oline and linebackers. The eagles had trouble stopping the run allowing 111 yards per game and adding pass rushers to their d line with awful linebackers is not going to help improve their run defense. I'm not saying the eagles r bad they will obviously be one of the top rated teams and should be but they should not be the top team without even playing 1 game.

Adding pass rushers with awful linebackers is not going to help. I’m not saying the eagles r bad, they will be a top rated team but I do not think they should be the top team without even playing 1 game.

    Team Ratings don’t really matter anyway. So the argument is pointless. The patriots were rated the highest in Madden 11 by the end of the season but when you look at the individual player ratings it doesn’t come close. Its about how the teams are performing. Also vikings have a bad rating cause they still have no real Quarterback.

  12. chaz

    Aug 11, 2011 at 10:03 am

    they will be because that is how the rating system works and did you not watch the nfl draft 2 linemen 2 linebackers they are defintaley improving as a unit @ steve

    • Steve

      Aug 11, 2011 at 5:21 pm

      Rookies usually do not make any impact at all the eagles need to win now

  13. chaz

    Aug 11, 2011 at 11:22 am

    gary the packers were the highest rated in madden not the patriots and your right the only rating that matters is speed thats why the raiders are a top team every year

    • huejac2

      Aug 21, 2011 at 1:04 pm

      That depends on whether you play from the neck up or the rist down. For those of us who play from the neck up its not just about speed.

  17. if your mother only knew

    Aug 14, 2011 at 6:41 am

    I think its funny when the jets fan said the packers got lucky!!? I guess u weren’t watching the Superbowl this year……in all honest the Steelers got lucky they didn’t get blown out the packers were winning the game easily until both there top two CB go down………I seriesly don’t know of its jets fans r ignorant or this Guy dosent no football

    The fact is the Packers beat Atlanta, Philly, Chicago, and the Steelers in the run to win the Superbowl. If they don't belong as the top team how can you argue any of the formentioned teams do when they didn't win when it mattered most to win the biggest prize. Yes the the Eagles and NE added some vets to help themselves be that winner this year but it is yet to tell if it is enough to do so. Until another team proves their the Campions by winning this years Superbowl the Packers are the best team period. How can you question a team with over 10 guys on IR with one of the hardest shedules whos biggest defeat was by 4 points. THATS JUST HATIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Wes

      Aug 22, 2011 at 8:32 am

      So what your saying is until February 2011, the NO Saints were the best team in football? I don't think anyone subscribes to the belief that last years SuperBowl winner are the best team in the league until the NEXT SuperBowl.

  20. lions

    tim so basicly your saying like every one else does because they won with ten players on ir they are the team to beat wrong there barley made it into the playoffs to begin with they had to fight thru a wild card just to get in how many great teams do u here of barley making it to the playoffs not many and how big were the pepole that they lost only two big names ryan grant and jermichale finly im not taking away from what they have done but im just tired of pepole over hyping them cuz they had pepole on ir

  22. eL_b3anZ

    Aug 17, 2011 at 8:39 am

    dont they rate teams based on their personnel? for example the patriots are always one of the top rated teams but they havent won a playoff game in a minute. but im assuming ratings are all subject to change

  23. Nitendo guy

    Aug 18, 2011 at 12:12 am

    Bradys overall should be 12 hes an old fart aaron rodgers is way better

  24. Pop1_Drop1

    Aug 18, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    Not arguing any of the ratings until the new update happens, and I won’t lie I DO Hate the Steelers, but with the ratings as they are right now, how are the Ravens 4 pts behind the Steelers when they have absolutely no Offensive Line? N I know u can say that we lose to them all the time in the playoffs but that’s bcuz Flacco hasn’t matured at all n is scared under pressure. Steelers still have no line but the Ravens main problem was at Tackle cuz Yanda who is our Guard had to play Tackle but now we have upgraded our Tackle spot n also went out n got couple more Wr’s n Boldin has had a full year playing in our system so Ravens should def be ranked same or NO MORE then 1 pt behind em!!!!

  25. Henrey

    Aug 21, 2011 at 6:37 am

    Coming from an open minded bucs fan, whoever is argueing against the packers should just stop. the packers won this arguement hands down. they listed down all the facts. read them and stop embarassing yourself

  26. Liam

    Aug 22, 2011 at 11:04 am

    the packers in this are the number one team (im a jets fan) but if you talk about an actual MADDEN team then after the update the eagles should be number one. theres no chemistry in madden so the best team with the most playmakers for MADDEN is the eagles

  27. They need help

    Aug 27, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    I wonder how EA Sports comes up with their ratings because it sure as hell isn’t from stats. They need to get their heads out of their asses and put together some realistic ratings. Players with big names but shit stats get awesome ratings while lesser known players with great stats get the shaft. A few ratings seem to be right on IMO but the vast majority seem to be poorly thrown together trash that is derived from lack of research.

  32. Andrew

    Aug 31, 2011 at 8:53 am

    The Lions should be atleast an 82. They have an incredible pass rush and a top WR. As for the other teams, the Ravens need to be ranked atleast an 89…

  33. elijah

    Sep 4, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    Honestly, the Packers were lucky to make it past the Eagles in the divisional game. Not taking anything away from them they did shut down the Philly offense, but David Akers isnt-well wasn’t known for missing FG’s, and he missed 2 in that game. And Riley Cooper made the rookie move by not coming back to the ball on that Tramon Williams pick. But there’s no sense crying over spilled milk what’s done is done. The Packers won the Super Bowl so they are the #1 team to beat. Period.

  34. Cole

    Sep 5, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Eagles are topped ranked team in the game followed by the packers everyone chill. The pats are higher than the steelers so stop freaking out. As the article clearly states those are the rankings BEFORE free agency. i know its hard to read the only sentence under the picture, but i assure you those arent the actual rankings anymore

  35. Texans23

    Sep 22, 2011 at 9:10 pm

    I just have 3 suggestions, and im a texans fan so they're completely unbiased, the cardinals being the worst rated team at 70 isn't right, theres definitely some worse teams than the cards (panthers? seahawks?) they should be up around the 76-78 area w/ the rest of the division, and the lions are a little underrated at 76, and the chiefs a little overrated at 84, other than that no problems

  36. Ike

    Sep 28, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    What about the lions? Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford, Jahvid Best, Suh? Lions will win this year!

  37. matt

    Oct 7, 2011 at 5:33 am

    agreed packers should be the best
    rodgers` top 3 Qb
    ryan Grant-top 12 Rb
    g. Jennings top 10 Wr
    driver top 15 WR
    finley top 5 TE
    woodson Top 3 CB
    t. Williams Top 10 Cb
    plus bj Raji, clay matthews, aj hawk, ETC
    heck I live in chicago so im kinda bears fan and i know when the packers got us beat
    the ONE team i like that can rival them is the EAGLES

  38. dont believe

    Nov 15, 2011 at 3:28 am

    Mostly i say the ranks mean shit they aint nothin. i put it like this if you cant play wit yo team then shut up. i dont care if packers are 92 that means nothin because the next time they will get lower. who ever makes this crap ass over alls dont know anything about football. most of these teams did better then most and for those ppl who turn from one team to suck on the packers balls then shut up because they aint all that good why dont they play a team thats good instead of getting lame teams to have a undeated record last i check maimi didnt have a easy season when they won there undefeated streak. packers are doing a pats remembering get all the games and lose where it counts. remember ppl have hurt ppl who are good that will come back and there ppl will get hurt soon. dont forget only the dolphins did it and won the superbowl. it never happens twice. best of luck to all teams that make it to the playoffs
