Laurence Maroney Upset With Madden ’11 Rating

Laurence Maroney thinks Madden '11 should have made him a better back. (imageshack.us)

While talking with the Boston Herald, Laurence Maroney expressed dissatisfaction with his player rating in the Madden ’11 game. According to Maroney,

”Oh man. They got me terrible on Madden, man. I want to tell Madden that, too. You know what’s crazy? I had my little shoulder problem, and I was 93 speed, 94 speed on Madden after my shoulder. Then I came down to 88. Man, what’s my shoulder got to do with my feet?

I ain’t that slow. (Madden) be trippin’ on my speed. I ain’t no 88. Then they got Fred (Taylor) and them faster than me. I know they ain’t faster. No, but I don’t trip, man. That’s a video game. It’s just cool to be on it.”

Maybe the problem is Maroney’s feet always running directly into defenders when there are many open routes all around him. He’s not the best running back around for a reason. Or maybe he’s just upset he’s not in the 90s for overall rating like Tom Brady (95), Logan Mankins (95), Randy Moss (95), Vince Wilfork (95), Stephen Gostowski (91), and Wes Welker (91). Even Sammy Morris (80) did better than Maroney (78).

One problem I see is Tom Brady being ranked so high; his injuries have got be slowing him down and depleting his value somewhat. And Logan Mankins is holding out, so his rating should be zero. Beside’s, it’s only a video game. If I thought it was prudent to complain about unrealistic video games, I would’ve complained about the old wrestling games where Debra could suplex the Big Show.

  1. I think Madden realized he was never a 94 speed. It’s hard to run fast down field when you’re always dancing in front of the line…
