On Friday, EA Sports revealed ratings of wide receivers and tight ends for Madden NFL 13. Denver’s Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker received considerable rating jumps from the 2011 version of the game.
Among receivers, Thomas was ranked 62nd, with an overall rating of 81 (+8 from last year). Thomas’ speed (96), acceleration (92) and catching (85) are all rated relatively high, while his awareness (70) and strength (77) did not fair as well.
Decker is ranked 87th, with an overall rating of 78 (+9). Decker’s rating is a large jump from 2011, when he was rated 69 overall going into his second season. Eric’s speed (88), acceleration (86), awareness (78) and catching (78) all topped 75, while his strength (68) was feeble.

AROUND THE WEB
I think any wide receiver who managed to produce numbers with Tim Tebow launching fluttering ducks across the field deserves a pat on the back or a bonus.
Fortunately for Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas, their bonus came in the form of Peyton Manning bringing his talents to the Mile High City.
Now that Manning has arrived, training camp is wrapped up, and a couple preseason...
The Denver Broncos are saying that QB Peyton Manning will get plenty of snaps in tonight’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, as he and the rest of the starters will play the entire first half.
We should get a good glimpse of Manning and how his arm (and neck) holds up for a complete half. Manning made news this week after admitting that his arm is not a strong as it was when...

Denver Broncos News
One writer puts together a seething fake letter from John Elway to Denver Broncos fans regarding Tim Tebow. Much of it rings true, but the fading Tebowmaniac in me would have responded with, “Yeah, but he wins. He took a team that lost 20+ games in two seasons and went deep into the playoffs.” 2011 is a season I’ll cherish forever. [New York Times...

Expectations for Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker immediately increased with the addition of star signal-caller Peyton Manning over the offseason.
Coming off a solid second season, will Thomas join the ranks of third-year receiver breakouts?
