Taking a break from traditional NFL analysis, I thought it would be fun to look at the Madden NFL 11 Ratings for the Jets and see how accurately the virtual players match up with their real-life counterparts.
For over 20 years, the Madden franchise has wowed gamers across many consoles, and the Madden 11 version for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 (sorry Wii, I love you, but Madden doesn't) is sure to be a big hit again as it is almost every year.
One thing that Madden has never, ever featured before that it will in this year's game is very exciting for Jets fans. For the first time in the history of the Madden franchise, the Jets are a top five ranked overall team, with an 89 overall rating that is fourth overall, behind only the Saints (92), Colts (91), and Ravens (90).
Another fun addition to the Madden 11 is a new attribute called Swagger, presented by Old Spice. That's right, Swagger will have a numerical rating from 1-99 along side Speed, Awareness, Strength, and Overall among others.
Without further ado, let's dive into these rankings and see how the Jets stack up in Madden NFL 11, which is in stores August 10, with the demos hitting PS3 and Xbox on July 27.
