Hey gamers, here ishow our beloved Bills are broken down in terms of individual ratings.
Before everyone freaks, EA as a whole lowered ratings across the board over the last few years. Where 95+ was elite and 85+ was pretty average, now low 80's are average and 90's are elite. They really dropped pass defense and OL rating across the board while boosting the athletic ratings for QB's and really dropped the ratings of K/Ps.
Outside of Woods (73?!) and Cogs RBL rating, I'd say the roster is very fair.
Anyone planning on getting Madden 18? I think I'm sticking with 17 for a long while... the franchise has just been in strong downward spiral that would make Blake Bortles blush. I've always been an offline guy, and unless you're willing to spend hours in the settings/sliders menu the days of fair AI and realistic gameplay is long over.
On a side note, I've always found adjusting the ratings week in and week out to be rather fun, and I've always enjoyed creating the rookies. If anyone who is sticking with 17 is interested, I may start uploading my rosters. I'd say the Bills are EXTREMELY updated and fair, and many of the offseason roster moves from around the NFL are updated. Some teams even have other rookies (Mostly 8-10 top prospects).
