Was Reggie Bush underrated in Madden 07? He certainly thinks so.

For instance, every year that I play I have players on my team that go up against the saints. I in no way root for those players to do well against the Saints outside of the Saints' victory. If they do well and the Saints win, then I am elated. If the Saints lose, I feel like at least I benefited in some way and that helps the hurt of the loss.
I am very sure that its not a question of loyalty when it comes to playing Fantasy Football. I remember at times, when I kick myself for not drafting Drew Brees last season. However, its given me an extra incentive to catch the other games. Living out here in Cali, I am not fortunate enough to catch Saints games and I end up having to catch either the 49ers, Chargers, and even worse Raider games. What it all comes down to is that we all love the game of football and even more when our Black and Gold is winning. Heck, even our own players admit to playing in Fantasy leagues.

I can’t imagine that Reggie Bush places that much stock in how madden ranks him.

On a side note…
I have a copy of madden 07 and I personally think they rated him, as he should be…

Don’t get me wrong he is one hell of an offensive back but I'm sure they could not just make him a 99 right out of the box simply because if he did suck then there reputation is on the line and considering madden has done a good job on rating the overall power of the NFL’s teams in the last few years I think they made the right call and next year they will rate him accordingly.

and I think I remember reading that someone posted...

It’s just a game anyway...

Right???????

MY wife finally gets it, and I'll say the same thing I use to tell her when she says... "football is a game"

"No... its not".

For the record, it was the 62 "Awareness" rating that pulled Reggie's rating down. I'm not sure what that rating does on a video game, but I'll bet it has a lot to do with right place/right time scenarios.

That's not always a big deal for a RB.

Fair enough
and I agree with that statement but we are talking about a video game of football not the real deal

Ya know...it felt kinda accurate to me. In my Madden he was super fast....had insane jukes...and...did fumble a couple of times. Seemed like Madden did fine as far as rating him. I'm sure he's gonna get insanely stupid numbers for '08.
