EA Sports has been revealing player ratings for Madden NFL 13 in weekly announcements leading up to the game’s August 24th release. On Friday, they announced complete running back ratings.
Denver’s Willis McGahee saw a +6 rating jump from 2011, going from an 79 overall rating last year to 85 overall in 2012.
Ranked 19th overall among running backs (24th overall including fullbacks), McGahee is the highest-ranked back in Denver and features ratings of 93 (trucking), 86 (speed), 85 (acceleration), 83 (strength) and a brutal 58 (elusiveness). Seven backs who rushed for fewer yards than McGahee in 2011 are rated higher than the veteran in this year’s Madden.

We’re reading increased reports of big Orlando Franklin‘s possible shift from right tackle to a position in the interior of the offensive line, with right guard (somewhat surprisingly) being the most-discussed destination. The idea: move Franklin to right guard, then shift Chris Kuper over to left guard, replacing Zane Beadles. The move would put the Broncos’ strongest offensive...
Here was Peyton Manning's final stat line by the end of the Broncos' first preseason game in Chicago: 4/7 for 44 yards, 1 interception and a 36.3 passer rating.
If you read that stat line without watching the game last night, you'd think that Manning had an off game. In fact, you'd probably think he had a terrible game.
From watching the tape, Manning did look...
For veteran cornerback Champ Bailey, the 2012 preseason will be anything but easy, even if he does feel like he is 23 years old again. The Denver Broncos‘ exhibition schedule features several of the greatest wide receivers to ever play the game.

Peyton Manning was back in action for the first time in a long time and he looked pretty decent as he knocked the rust off. He only showed off his arm on a 19 yard gain to Eric Decker (my favorite Broncos WR this season), but he was picked off in the redzone on a ball he threw behind Stokely. I will have to see more to give him a full endorsement, but this was...
Denver was a great host city for UFC 150 with athletes and stars alike out to watch the rematch of Henderson/Edgar. Here former safety of the Eagles and Broncos Brian Dawkins hangs with Mr White.
