The folks at EA Sports have rolled out their top ten quarterback rankings for Madden NFL 13 today in a video that features correspondent and NFL Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk. Which NFL quarterbacks came in at the top of the list?
It is really no surprise that Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers came in with a perfect rating of 99. He was followed closely by Tom Brady and Drew Brees who each received a 98 overall rating and then Eli Manning came in fourth with a 97. After the top for ratings is where we will surely get some controversy.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger came in at fifth with a 95 rating. Throughout his career Roethlisberger has shown that he is an elite NFL quarterback but he has not received the respect he deserves from the fans. EA Sports acknowledged his on-the-field success and rewarded him with a top five rating.
Rounding out the top ten is Peyton Manning (93), Philip Rivers (92), Matthew Stafford (91), Tony Romo (90) and Michael Vick (89).
