Madden NFL 15: Eagles players best and worst ratings

New, comments

Just for fun.

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Madden NFL 15's ratings have been released and last week Bleeding Green Nation took a closer look at them. Today, in more of a fun/random/meaningless activity, I'm going to do two things with these ratings: 1) Look at the players with the best/worst score in an individual category and 2) look at each player's best and worst category.

Let's get it started.

Best/worst score per category

Overall: RB LeSean McCoy and OG Evan Mathis (97), "TE" Jon Dorenbos (48)

Speed: RB LeSean McCoy (94), OG Todd Herremans (54)

Acceleration: RB LeSean McCoy (98), OT Andrew Gardner (66)

Agility: RB LeSean McCoy (99), C Julian Vandervelde and NT Beau Allen (54)

Awareness: OLB Trent Cole (94), S Keelan Johnson (45) -- Is someone poking fun at Keelan's arrest?

Catching: WR Riley Cooper (88), OG Todd Herremans and P Donnie Jones (12) -- OK, maybe Madden really is trolling. Cooper had the infamous drop against the Saints in the playoffs. Herremans used to be a tackle-eligible tight end in the redzone. He has two touchdowns on two career catches. I've watched Donnie Jones catch throws in practice from QBs and his hands are actually pretty solid.
