Are these meaningful or significant other than game playing? This is not meant to be disrespectful, just curiosity.

OK, apparently some players take this very seriously. But then again, some people just want to have a chip on their shoulder.

Next up, the 100 best players in the NFL. Another chance to complain.

Madden gaming has become an important portal to NFL fandom for many young people. Like you ricky, I mean no disrespect to the many who love gaming - my son and grandsons love playing, and all three are great athletes who play/played and love football.

As for the guys who rate players in Madden NFL - Andre Weingarten, a 23 year old who took scouting classes to augment his tech background and Dustin Smith 34, who ten years ago was a game-tester for Electronic Arts, searching for bugs in the game and ways to make the player likenesses more accurate.

These two guys deserve respect for their impressive accomplishments, but worrying or taking too serious how they rank players might just be a waste of time.

just sayin'

The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game.
They just ran out of time.
