Still the No. 1 quarterback in the opinion of Chris Simms
The full Madden ratings have been released http://www.bengalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-michael-jordan-jersey , and a certain player with a reputation for being a tad sensitive may not be happy with the number he received.Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who last year was one of seven players to get a game-high 99, has fallen all the way to 90. Rodgers lands at No. 7 in the assessment of the folks at EA, behind Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (97), Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (96) Greedy Williams Jersey , Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers (94), Saints quarterback Drew Brees (92), Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (92), and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (91).Other quarterbacks who may have beef with his Madden rating include Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (89), Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (85), Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (84) http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-sione-takitaki-jersey , Rams quarterback Jared Goff (83), Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson (82), and Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (75).Also, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has an 80, which could be enough to get Carr to block the official Madden account on Twitter.Others of note: Giants quarterback Eli Manning has a 72, Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles landed at only 77 Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson got a 76, and Jets quarterback Sam Darnold and Bills quarterback Josh Allen each received paltry 74s.The NFC North's quarterbacks got it particularly rough, from Rodgers' 90 to Trubisky's 75 to Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins getting an 81 to Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford earning a 79 -- the same rating as Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota.While the game designers clearly hope to create separation, the current golden age of quarterbacks justifies more players getting higher ratings than they received. Check out the full list of quarterback ratings here. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)The Carolina Panthers wasted little time naming a new defensive coordinator after Steve Wilks left to become head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. Panthers coach Ron Rivera promoted defensive line coach Eric Washington as Wilks' replacement on Monday, just hours after the hiring of Wilks became official. Rivera said after the season that had a hunch Wilks would get a head coaching job http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-austin-seibert-jersey , and was prepared in the event that it happened. Wilks' departure means the Panthers will enter next season with three new coordinators. Rivera fired offensive coordinator Mike Shula two days after the season and replaced him with Norv Turner. Special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey was replaced by former assistant coach Chase Blackburn. McGaughey's contract was up and he wanted to pursue other options. It's the second straight season the Panthers have lost a defensive coordinator to a head coaching gig. Last year the Buffalo Bills hired Sean McDermott as their new head coach. It's expected that Wilks will take a few current Carolina assistants with him, including linebackers coach Al Holcomb and assistant offensive line coach Ray Brown. Washington has served as the Panthers defensive line coach for the past seven seasons. During that span the Panthers defensive line has recorded more sacks (219) than any team in the NFL. Washington's defensive line has not only been productive in getting to the quarterback, but also fared well against the run. Carolina has ranked in the top six in the NFL in four of the past six seasons in run defense, including a No. 2 ranking in 2013. Under Washington, the Panthers defensive line has featured two All-Pro selections and two Pro Bowl selections. Since 2013, a Panthers defensive lineman has earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week three times and NFC Defensive Player of the Month twice. The Panthers defense has finished in the top 10 in defense five of the last six seasons Trysten Hill Jersey , including four consecutive from 2012-15. Washington has been a part of a Carolina coaching staff that has led the Panthers to playoff appearances in four of the past five seasons, including a Super Bowl 50 appearance two seasons ago. --
