Do you believe in Matt Leinart? Neither do the producers of "Madden NFL 11" as the Arizona Cardinals overall team rating in the game has plummeted to just a 79 only one year removed from having one of the more dynamic offenses in the game (and being rated an 87). The quarterback unit of the Cardinals has also dropped to 30th in the league now that Kurt Warner has retired.
The plight of the Cardinals was revealed by "Madden NFL 11's" ratings czar Donny Moore in an interview with video game Web site Gamespot.com. Other numbers of note include the Super Bowl champion Saints as the top-rated team with a 92 overall, and the Vikings clocking in at 88 with a virtual Brett Favre under center. I wonder how much that number would fall if Favre retires.
As you ponder that (my guess is they'd drop to at least an 85), check out the ratings for the rest of the teams.
