Two of the Philadelphia Eagles’ most underappreciated talents are even underappreciated on the game.
Brandon Graham is one of the game’s most underappreciated players. We’re talking about real-life stuff here, not just in Madden.
Who cares if he was playing one of the league’s worst teams? What he did in 2019 versus the New York Jets should have earned him a Defensive Player of the Week Award. It didn’t. He should have been voted to the Pro Bowl after last season concluded. So far, he hasn’t been named to any Pro Bowl roster ever, and now, look. The Madden rating team just gave him an overall score of 87.
He’s better than that. He may not be in the class of guys who are 90 or better at this stage of his career, but he shouldn’t be too far off.
Wouldn’t you know it? We’re over halfway done with this top ten list, we’ve dipped below everyone who earned an 85 or better on Madden NFL 21, and finally, we get to one of the game’s best superstars, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.
Of course, he’s graded too low. Why wouldn’t he be graded too low?
Sure, we could talk about 20 or more touchdowns and seven picks or fewer in the past three seasons. We could also bring up the fact that he threw for more than 4,000 yards despite not having any of his receivers top the 500 receiving yards plateau. We can talk about what he had around him. All we know is this.
One, we’re not going to stand for higher rankings for Matt Ryan and Dak Prescott, and second, it’s going to be interesting to see what his injury rating is.
