The New Orleans Saints will kick off the regular season on Sunday September 7th, but there’s another big debut that is coming out before then that we’re excited about.
Later this month EA Sports will release the latest edition of its mega-popular NFL video game series, Madden. If you’ve never played Madden then I can’t express how sorry I feel for you. Watching games is great, but Madden is as close as it comes to experiencing the pro game in your fingertips.
It’s not a fast learning curve, either. If you don’t have a pretty solid understanding of the way football works, you’re going to have a really hard time playing. Playbooks are elaborate, and the defensive schemes mirror what real NFL teams do. Mashing buttons won’t fly here.
There’s no better tool for learning the game and indulging your NFL addiction on a spiritual level.

We were curious to find out which New Orleans Saints players would be rated the highest in the new game. Thanks to Fansided we now know. Here is a list of the top 10 best of the Saints:
1. TE Jimmy Graham – 97 overall
2. QB Drew Brees – 96 overall
3. FS Jairus Byrd – 96 overall
4. DE Cameron Jordan – 93 overall
5. P Thomas Morstead – 93 overall
6. RG Jahri Evans – 91 overall
7. LG Ben Grubbs – 91 overall
8. WR Marques Colston – 90 overall
9. CB Keenan Lewis – 87 overall
10. RT Zach Strief – 87 overall
So what do you think of the ratings? Is Brees too low at 96 or just right?
