    Well, as we wind down our first full season of HK for Madden 13, I first want to thank all of you for a fun season. It has been rough for me but I have enjoyed pretty much all my games and I have a great time everytime I link up and play with you all.

    Looking over the stats, in my personal opinion there are 5 guys that stand out from the rest. I first must say I elminated any player for teams who are not in the race and/or will not make playoffs (ie, my stat whoring players). Here is my take, let me know what you think and who you think I left out!



    #1
    CHRISTIAN PONDER QB Vikings
    [​IMG]
    118.8 QB Rating 3288 yards 29 tds 13 ints
    #2
    AARON RODGERS QB Packers
    [​IMG]
    112.8 QB Rating 2971 yards 29 tds 14 ints
    #3
    TRENT RICHARDSON HB Browns
    [​IMG]
    1150 yards 4.4 ypc 10 touchdowns
    #4
    JIMMY GRAHAM TE Saints
    [​IMG]
    82 Receptions 1,005 yards 11 touchdowns
    #5
    TRAMON WILLIAMS CB Packers
    [​IMG]
    25 tackles 1 sack 11 ints 13 pass deflections
    Thougths:
    The first two selections here are easily explained. They have been the best quarterbacks in the league this year.
    It has been a rough year for running backs in HK. Still, T-Rich leads the league in rushing as a rookie and is the Browns best offensive player. The Browns are still in the hunt and I think that catapults him to near the top.
    Jimmy Graham leads all recivers in receptions, and all tight ends in touchdowns and yards, ranking in the top 10 in the pass crazy NFL in both. He is a legit MVP candidate for his 1st place Saints in my opinon.
    Tramon Williams has been the shutdown corner of the year for the Packers. First in the league with 11 interceptions is good enough, but 13 pass break-ups? Best defensive player arguably in the league this year.

    less ypc and slightly less yards. I almost put him up but i can't nominate a hb for mvp with only a 4.1 ypc. Richardson is up there more because he is the only weapon Cleveland has + he leads the league in rushing + he is a rookie.

    Gore is having a solid year though.

    I almost voted for Tramon, surprised no one else did. 13 pass break ups and 11 ints + a sack is a great year!

    I'm pretty sure half of those stats all came against me. That's why I didn't vote for him, lol.

    that was me with the first vote...he was harder to stop than Ponder and Rodgers, those guys were good, just Graham is tougher to plan against

    I know we do this for content but it is pointless.......We have auto game were guys play vs the cpu and disconnects at a high rate plus simulated games.

    :) to all the responses to my post........all i was trying to say is stats are not what hk is about especially ones that arent 100 percent accurate based on users. My bad fellas didnt mean to spark negative interest.
