Edwards worst AFC East starting QB in 'Madden'


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

While watching a recent practice at Buffalo Bills training camp, some of the reporters were joking that punter Brian Moorman might not have the team's highest Madden rating anymore.

Over the past several years, Moorman regularly has been Buffalo's best player on the popular video game. But Terrell Owens figured to top him.

EA Sports officially unveiled AFC East player ratings for "Madden NFL 10" this week on ESPN.com's video games page. The Bills were posted Thursday, wrapping up all 32 teams.

Moorman actually was surpassed by two teammates: defensive tackle Marcus Stroud and Owens -- but not by a whole lot. Stroud was given an overall rating of 92, while Owens registered a 91. Moorman rated an 89.

Running back Marshawn Lynch scored an 87, but backup Fred Jackson came in with a respectable 77.

The overall number that surprised me most was Trent Edwards with a 76, making him the lowest-rated starting quarterback in the AFC East. New York Jets rookie Mark Sanchez sports a 78.

For the record, since I know you're curious, Madden evaluators rated left tackle Langston Walker a 78. They rated Jason Peters a 95.
