Madden NFL 15 Top QBs: Russell Wilson Tied With Tom Brady
Madden NFL 15 continued its rating release schedule today by unveiling the top five quarterbacks in this year’s game, and while some players landed just where you might expect, others are shaking up the Madden world. In particular, Russell Wilson is tied with future hall of fame quarterback Tom Brady.
Fresh off a Super Bowl victory, there’s a lot to love about Seattle Seahawks’ QB Russell Wilson: He’s smart, he’s mobile, he throws the deep ball as well as the best in the league and perhaps most importantly, he’s the NFL’s fresh blood at the position.
But, is now really the time to put him head-to-head with New England Patriots QB Tom Brady?
Madden NFL 15 Pulls Some QB Rating Surprises
Madden NFL 15 ratings czar Donny Moore certainly noticed the relatively down year by Tom Brady this past season (no doubt due in part to one of the most jostled up receiving corps in the league), but even in a “down” year Brady still passed for 4,300 yards and 25 TDs to only 11 interceptions. While Russell Wilson’s Seahawks threw among the fewest times in the league, the Patriots and Tom Brady tossed the ball around among the most, which makes Wilson’s neck-and-neck tie with Brady a bit of a peculiar one that might be arriving a few seasons too soon.
Who else finished in the top five Madden NFL 15 QB ratings? Well, after a historic regular season by Peyton Manning, the Broncos QB sits tied with Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers at 98 overall. Drew Brees predictably pulls in third at 96 overall before Wilson and Brady finish out the top five.
