Buffalo Bills: Madden team overall ratings through the years
In Madden 09 the Bills got their overall back to a 82 which was a huge improvement from the 67 the previous season. LT Jason Peters led the team with the highest team rating at 97. This was the year that the Bills took CB Leodis McKelvin in the first round with the eleventh pick. McKelvin had a 82 overall rating that year. This was also the season the Bills acquired DT Marcus Stroud from the Jaguars via trade. Stroud was the second highest rated Bill on the roster this year with a 94 overall. The Bills finished the year with another 7-9 record which was 4th in the AFC East.
Madden 07 was my first Madden and one that I will always cherish, but Madden 10 was the beginning of where I bought every Madden right when they came out. We signed Terrell Owens and Ryan Fitzpatrick and drafted Eric Wood, Andy Levitre and Jairus Byrd. Marcus Stroud was still our highest rated player at 92 with Terrell Owens right behind Stroud at 91 overall. The season started with Dick Jauron as the head coach until he was fired after a 3-6 start where Perry Fewell was named the interim head coach. The Bills finished the year 6-10 even with having a 78 rating in the game.
That 6-10 last season didn’t heal the Bills’ overall in this year’s game with the Bills having another overall rating of 67. Brian Moorman was the highest rated player on the Bills again this year only having a 90 this year though. After Jairus Byrd impressive rookie season he was rated with an 87. Chan Gailey was named the head coach for the Bills in the 2010 season. This was another rough year for the Bills with a 4-12 record with their only Pro Bowler being Kyle Williams who’s rating was only 79 in the game. This was also the year the Bills drafted C.J. Spiller who was rated 79 overall in his rookie season, in what was a lackluster draft class.
