My time with Madden NFL 11 was in the cooperative team-play booth. On the floor, someone managed a video peek at this year's ratings and piece together the eight best players at all positions, and overall, when the game ships.

There are six 99-rated players in this year's game - Tennessee running back Chris Johnson; 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis; Jets corner Darrelle Revis; Vikings defensive end Jared Allen, and quarterbacks Drew Brees and Peyton Manning, Saints and Colts. Seven quarterbacks are rated 90 or better, including Brett Favre at 92, should he return to Minnesota. Among runners, Adrian Peterson is a 98 and Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew is a 96
