Sam Bradford, Vikings – 83
Sam Bradford, one of the most fragile QBs of this generation somehow has a higher overall rating than the likes of Eli Manning, Joe Flacco, Marcus Mariota, and Jameis Winston, to name a few. We are very confused as to how anyone could think Bradford earns the rating that he has in Madden 18. In what was one of his better seasons (mostly just because he physically played in it), Bradford threw for 3,877 yards (good for 16th) and 20 TDs (good for 20th).
Sure, Bradford did a decent job of protecting the football with only 5 INTs, but does one season where he wasn’t a complete embarrassment mean he gets to leapfrog some potential future hall of famers (that still produce mind you) and two of the best young QBs in the league? I get that he’s a former number 1 pick, but that was a long time ago. This rating doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
