    Are you frustrated from a perceived lack of respect, or because you like playing them on Madden, and lower scores makes it tougher to win with them? Either is justified. I mean, Roddy White is a great receiver, but he's not better than Dez.

    Their rankings are fine. The rankings are based off of each players skillset. Harvin will be a little high because speed and agility are heavily weighed. I had no problem with the Cowboys ratings.

    Only one I did was Dunbar. I had Demarco get hurt and Dunbar came into the game and was slow....REAL SLOW. I think Miles was a little low with 84 rating but I guess that's the season he had so I won't complain.

    I have only played the demo I don't have the game yet. I thought I would be more into it but after a few games I have not gone back to it, but that is partly due to the fact I am stuck with the choice of only 4 teams and not the Cowboys. I will pick up the game pretty soon.

    Yea I had Dez, Murray, Carter all go out with at least 12 week injuries the first 2 minutes of the game. Free went out with a 4 week injury as did JJ Wilcox and Lissemore. I am getting the injury bug big time and just the first couple games. Overall though I think some players are too low and some are too high. The game itself isnt too bad but the injuries are crazy. I lay the wood to the other team and they just get right back up, I get injuried just tackling. Killed the Giants but lost to the Chiefs by 3 points.

    I was referring to the non-cowboys that are the comparators.

    As far as Will Allen too low, he's started only a few games in the last 6-7 years. What would you expect?

    Wow, this game looks like crap. Glad I'm gonna get $45 in credit when I trade it in after activating Sunday Ticket.

    I saw videos of an online game of Cowboys NYG and all the Dallas guy did was run the read option and the mentally dead Giants linebackers got sucked in by the fake and out ran by Romo the vast majority of the time.

    Tired of the EA Tiburon team taking a yearly duece on the current gen systems, I have no hope they will figure it out for the next ones.

    That's hilarious because I don't know what I am doing at all so I was button mashing through some of the tips and menu screens and accidentally picked a play that ended up being Tanner running the Wildcat.

    I think they are being a little generous to Justin Durant and Danny McCray tbh.
