Madden 2007 Has Arrived

Madden 2007 has arrived, and while I still hate those low-lifes at EA for their cowardly exclusive NFL deal (which crushed a superior game, ESPN Football), I'm happy that it's football season and I get to turn the Jets into a winning team for a change, if only in a virtual world where Chad Pennington can manage to stay healthy for an entire season. And be sure to check out this amusing article from ESPN.com on Madden's player ratings. My favorite tidbit:

99 -- Ego rating for 16 players deemed the most arrogant in the NFL. And not surprisingly, five of the 16 players -- Jeremy Shockey, Kellen Winslow Jr., Clinton Portis, Warren Sapp and Ray Lewis -- are from "The U." (So called, of course, because football players who received their "education" in Miami are often unable to remember the actual name of their institution of higher learning.)
You know T.O.'s Ego rating has to be a 99, too, but he wasn't mentioned because he didn't go to Miami. He's a way bigger jerk than Jerky McJerkerson Jeremy Shockey.
