We are less than a week from the release of Madden 2008. In case anyone wants you for meetings or anything else that might waste your time next week.

The official player ratings have been released, and even though we don't have Ethan Albright's rating, we still can play around with them. The top position guys are obvious โ€” Manning, Tomlinson, Chad Johnson โ€” but some guys are higher than they should be (Randy Moss) and some guys are lower (Thomas Jones). And yes, Favre is still in the top 10.

Matt Leinart is less than pleased with his rating.

"Last year I had a fumbling problem where if you breathed on my character he dropped the ball. This year my strength rating is awful. I'm going to get my butt kicked in the game."


Well, this is what you get for hanging out with Robin Williams.
