Let's shift gears here while we have a moment to catch our training camp breath. The end of the NFL lockout didn't just mean the return of football. It also ensured the debut of, yes, "Madden 12."
ESPN.com's Jon Robinson has been rolling out exclusive rating previews for the game. This week, he hit on team ratings in the NFC North. Here you go:
Chicago Bears: 85
Detroit Lions: 76
I've noted a time or two that I don't get the gaming thing, but I fully recognize that many of you do. So to whet your appetite, here are some other NFC North-related ratings notes that might interest you:
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has a 95 overall rating.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler received a 98 rating for throwing power.
Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh rates a 95 in hit power
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has a 97 overall rating.
May the best animation win.
