Ian and Donny vs. T.J. Houshmandzadeh

Give 'em hell boys!

OK, this is something that I admit never crossed my mind when I was first told about the stretching of the Madden 10 ratings.

Players being openly pissy about how some dudes at a game company rate them as players. This is a multi-millionaire dollar athlete who doesn't like being told that hey -- guess what--you aren't winning a medal in the 100.

Houshmandzadeh is rated a 91 OVR with top shelf ratings in various (important) categories but because Donny gave him less than sound shattering speed he's a sad Seahawk.

My favorite part was when Donny dropped some stats and he basically blamed the entire Bengals offense. Hating the Bengals like I do, I smiled.

TJ averaged 9.8 per catch last year with a bad QB.

What about when he had a healthy Palmer?

13.3; 12.4; 12.0 and 10.2

So, what is Donny supposed to do? HINES WARD averages more per catch.

If TJ averages 17 yards per catch in Madden X then asshats like ME will say, "Donny, WTF man. TJ is a possession receiver."

Too funny.
