EA sports has released their week 14 roster and rating updates today, overall the Saints team rating have stayed the same but a few other changes were made.
Linebacker Kawika Mitchell (79 overall) has been added to the roster after signing with the Saints yesterday. Mitchell is a diverse linebacker that can play both the outside or middle positions but should see a role at a weak side linebacker and may unseat current starter Danny Clark.
Ladell Betts has been removed from the roster because of injury (kneck). Betts was placed on injured reserve yesterday after missing the Saints last three games.
Running back Reggie Bush saw a rating decrease from 80 overall to a 79. Bush has missed eight games this season after breaking his fibula in week 2 and so far has not been able to get back to form after such a long absence and his decrease is certainly a reflection of this.
Rookie runnign back Chris Ivory has been runnign the ball well for the Saints as of late leaving Bush to watch from the sideline as he continues to rack up the yards and touchdowns.
After the shellacking of the Jets by the Patriots, New England has become the highest rated team in Madden NFL 11 after a two point boost to 92 overall. Meanwhile the Jets took a dive after the loss to 89 overall.
