• ANDY DALTON IS BETTER THAN TONY ROMO, AND ALSO OTHER SURPRISING 'MADDEN 17' QB RATINGS


Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is one of the most polarizing players within the NFL.

Somehow, Dalton has generally grow to be the Rorschach inkblot test of quarterbacks: For those who assume Dalton's excellent, then you know practically nothing about NFL quarterbacks. In case you feel he's bad, then you know practically nothing about NFL quarterbacks. In case you consider he's exactly average, then you happen to be a quarterback guru.

Dalton is so polarizing that the guys over at NFL.com developed the "Andy Dalton scale."

Basically, in the event the quarterback on your team is superior than Dalton, then you have franchise quarterback. Alternatively, in case your group features a quarterback who's worse than Dalton, then you definitely require a brand new quarterback.

Based on that facts, I have some horrible news for 23 teams around: You need a brand new quarterback. A minimum of, you will need a brand new quarterback in line with the most recent ratings from Madden 17.
The complete ratings for the game had been released on Wednesday, and let's just say that the programmers over at EA Sports consider very extremely of Dalton. The Bengals quarterback was offered an 87 general rating, which ranked above Tony Romo (86), Philip Rivers (84), Eli Manning (81) and Joe Flacco (81).
Clearly, Flacco's not elite if he's not even around the proper side of your Dalton scale.
Dalton was the ninth-highest ranked quarterback within the game this year, which arguably tends to make sense since he's coming off a career year. Even so, a number of people weren't amused by Dalton's ranking.
