The (semi?) Weekly Weddle

It's been a while, but we are back with all the Eric Weddle news and updates you can handle. Some of the overall team and player ratings have been released for the Madden '09 game (via PastaPadre.com), and things are pretty jam-packed at the top with the Patriots a 97 overall, the Cowboys second at 96 (WTF?), and the Chargers and Colts both at 95. But all we really care about here is Eric Weddle. How does his Madden rating stack up against other players at his position?

With an overall 79 rating, E-Weezy is placed in the middle of the pack of free safeties, behind the likes of Chris Hope and Brian Russell. However, as a first year starter, look for E-Dubs to raise his stock throughout the season and be more highly rated once the in season ratings updates are available for download.

In addition, here are some rookie ratings of note:

Destined to suck

Darren McFadden (OAK)-85
Dominique Rogers-Cromartie (AZ)-82
Rashard Mendenhall (PIT)-81
Jacob Hester (SD)-77 (RB), 83 (FB)
Antoine Cason (SD)-79
Glenn Dorsey (KC)-84
Felix Jones (DAL)-80
Jake Long (MIA)-86
DeSean Jackson (PHI)-78
Jerod Mayo (NE)-82
Dan Connor (CAR)-78
Matt Ryan (ATL)-83
Sedrick Ellis (NYJ)-83
Kenny Phillips (NYG)-80
