The fine folks at EA Sports have released the official player rankings for the newest installment of the highly popular Madden NFL football series, Madden 10 (evidently not Madden ’10, as I would’ve expected). As we all might have anticipated, the Vikings‘ own Adrian Peterson is ranked #1 among running backs with an overall 97. Among Viking defensive players, Jared Allen scores the highest rating, a 98, followed by Kevin Williams who is a 97. Of course, if you’re like me, you immediately fart with the rankings to make all the Vikings players better than they would ever be in real life. And then you play them against the Mummies or Sugar Buzz. Yeah, I haven’t bought Madden since they still had the Mummies and Sugar Buzz. Or maybe they do again. As I indicated, I haven’t bought the game in several years. It could have a ballet mode by now for all I know.
