Apparently they’re still making those Madden football games for the high-tech video consoles the kids enjoy so much.
As a public service, or something, I am happy to relay the player ratings for the Vikings in the new game, Madden ’11.
Or, at the very least, link to the place where you can find them.
Yes, Brett Favre is the quarterback. He’s rated a 92 overall, with a 99 for toughness. That means he can get cheap-shotted in the ankles all day and always come back.
The Vikes’ highest-rated player overall is Jared Allen, who gets a 99. Adrian Peterson is a 98, Kevin Williams and Steve Hutchinson are both 97s, and Ryan Longwell is a 92.
Sidney Rice takes what I assume is a huge leap up from last year, receiving a 90 overall.
Among rookies, Toby Gerhart received the highest rating, a 71. Everson Griffen and Chris Cook are both 70s. Chris DeGeare scored a 63.
As for guys who got the shaft…Anthony Herrera at only 70 overall? And John Sullivan got a 77? Sorry, but Herrera is a better player than John Sullivan. Also, 69 is too low for Benny Sapp. Unless he’s getting docked for being a knucklehead. Then, okay.
So there you go, the Madden ’11 rankings. Game on, gamers.
