Drew Brees rated lower than Manning, Rodgers in Madden 15


Just a few hours ago EA Sports’ website released the ratings of the top 5 quarterbacks that will be featured in Madden 15 and Drew Brees will be the third-highest rated QB in the game. A couple of days ago EA also released the ratings of the top 15 rookies but Saints’ first-round pick didn’t make the cut.

Here’s the list of the top NFL signal-callers:

1) Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos 98 ovr

2) Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers 98 ovr

3) Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints 96 ovr

4) Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks 93 ovr

5) Tom Brady, New England Patriots 93 ovr

Donny Moore, the creator of the Madden ratings, added a brief analysis for each QB. About Brees he said:

"Brees is ranked second in Short and Medium Accuracy ratings. He falls to 81 Deep Accuracy (ranked 17th in NFL) after a rough 2013 season where he hit only 40.3% of deep passes according to Pro Football Focus."

It’s hard to argue against Peyton Manning’s rating and Aaron Rodgers was having a fantastic season before the injury (and after too!) so I think the ratings are fair so far. Russell Wilson might be a bit overrated because of the recent Super Bowl title and the fact that he’s a dual-threat quarterback.
