I’ve written before about small glimpses we got into the Madden 2011 rankings, both team and individual, but now we have the complete player rankings for the New York Giants. IGN has a complete and ridiculously in depth list of every player and his ranking in every area.
I will leave you to pore over the rankings yourself if you so choose, but I wanted to highlight a few things myself.
Chris Snee, with an overall 96, is the highest rated player, followed by Justin Tuck at 92 and Shaun O’Hara at 91. Corey Webster and Eli Manning both tie with 89. The player rating team in Madden 2011 didn’t seem to know how to handicap the race opposite Tuck for Defensive End, as both frontrunners for the position, Osi Umenyiora and Mathias Kiwanuka both scored 83 overall.
Derek Hagan and Ramses Barden have beat out Sinorice Moss as the roster’s last two WRs. After Domenik Hixon, Antrel Rolle, Aaron Ross, and Steve Smith all tie for the highest Return rating on the team. Matt Dodge, the punter currently tasked with taking over for the retired Jeff Feagles, is at 66. Manningham and Hixon both have Jeremy Shockey disease according to the game, which much higher rating for their spectacular catches as opposed to catches in traffic.
Antrel Rolle, Brandon Jacobs, Hakeem Nicks, and Mario Manningham all have 88s in the all important swagger rating, the highest on the team.
There’s lots of other meaningless other ratings on there that are fun to look at (Eli is a better run blocker than pass blocker, evidently), so take some time out of your day and look around.
