Ratings Up

HB Matt Forte - Bears - 85 to 87 - Ran hard and showed great promise behind a mediocre offensive line and a seemingly bad passing game.

DE Alex Brown - Bears - 85 to 86 - Made some big plays but consistency is still the biggest problem with him.

CB Leon Hall - Bengals - 80 to 82 - Had a better year after getting abused by offenses in his rookie season.

S Chinedum Ndukwe - Bengals - 80 to 84 - The Bengals best player in the secondary this season. Looks to enter next season entrenched as a starter.

HB Fred Jackson - Bills - 81 to 83 - Backup back to Marshawn Lynch who outplayed him most weeks.

LT Ryan Clady - Broncos - 87 to 90 - Elite LT for the Broncos. Everything you heard about how good he is is true.

WR Brandon Marshall - Broncos - 94 to 96 - Has taken the next step as a dominate #1 WR. The numbers are only going to get better.

WR Eddie Royal - Broncos - 82 to 84 - Undersized receiver who proved most critics wrong about the Broncos drafting him too early.

WR Larry Fitzgerald - Cardinals - 97 to 98 - Made more circus type catches vs. an outmatched Falcons secondary.

DE Antonio Smith - Cardinals - 84 to 85 - Has played big all season for the Cardinals.

LB Karlos Dansby - Cardinals - 88 to 89 - Was showing big hitting ability and in the right place at the right time in the 1st round vs. the Falcons.

CB DRC - Cardinals - 81 to 85 - Matched up with Roddy White and came up big. Made a nice leaping INT in addition to solid man coverage.

HB Darren Sproles - Chargers - 82 to 84 - Could be the start of a huge offseason contract. Looks much better than Tomlinson down the stretch.

CB Terence Newman - Cowboys - 95 to 96 - After shedding off injury concerns locked down opposing receivers the rest of the season.

DT Jay Ratliff - Cowboys - 87 to 88 - Racked up 7.5 sacks in impressive fashion for the Cowboys.

LB Bradie James - Cowboys - 88 to 89 - Played pro bowl caliber this season (just ask him).

CB Andre Goodman - Dolphins - 76 to 79 - Was miserable in Detroit in a Cover 2 scheme, played extremely well in man for the Dolphins.

LT Jake Long - Dolphins - 86 to 89 - Dolphins made a good pick and got a solid LT for the next 10 years.

LB Channing Crowder - Dolphins - 86 to 87 - Played kind of like everyone thought he would at the end of the season. Is up for a new contract.

QB Chad Pennington - Dolphins - 85 to 88 - Didn’t get it done vs. the Ravens, but played near mistake free football all season with free agent caliber WR’s playing a big role.

S Yeremiah Bell - Dolphins - 86 to 87 - Emerged as the best player in the Dolphins secondary after showing promise last year before a knee injury.

QB Donovan McNabb - Eagles - 91 to 92 - Has been rolling since the benching. Continues to play with receivers that can’t beat press coverage.

S Quintin Mikell - Eagles - 86 to 89 - The strength of the defense has been the safeties, big reason is Mikell.

S Brian Dawkins - Eagles - 93 to 94 - Whispers of his demise were exaggerated, has been as good as ever this season.

QB Matt Ryan - Falcons - 87 to 89 - Played a shaky rookie playoff game with some rookie throws, but he will be an elite QB in the future.

LT Sam Baker - Falcons - 83 to 85 - Had back issues this season and was banged up in college, but was a fine pass blocker when healthy.

WR Roddy White - Falcons - 93 to 94 - Looks to keep rolling next season with Matt Ryan.

CB Corey Webster - Giants - 90 to 91 - Has really turned it on this season playing excellent football consistently.

CB Rashean Mathis - Jaguars - 96 to 97 - Was an All-Pro before an injury to his knee ended his season. Likes to take the offenses best WR which can’t be said about all elite CB’s.

S Gerald Sensabaugh - Jaguars - 81 to 83 -

HB Thomas Jones - Jets - 90 to 91 - Looked very spry despite Jet beat writers saying otherwise. Ran very hard and was very elusive in space.

WR Calvin Johnson - Lions - 92 to 94 - Was the best player on the field Week 17 vs. the Packers. A QB and a competent staff could produce something never seen.

HB Kevin Smith - Lions - 79 to 81 - Was 24 yards short of a 1,000 with 8 TD’s on the Lions.

HB DeAngelo Williams - Panthers - 86 to 89 - His last half of the season was silly. Looks to keep rolling vs. the Cardinals.

QB Aaron Rodgers - Packers - 86 to 88 - Played an excellent season showing mobility and a cannon arm (and better than Brett).

FS Nick Collins - Packers - 89 to 91 - Was in the QB’s head for the first time in his career this season. Game is slowing down for him.

CB Charles Woodson - Packers - 94 to 95 - The Packers MVP this season.

RT Jeff Otah - Panthers - 79 to 83 - A beast in the run game.

LB Jerod Mayo - Patriots - 84 to 88 - Defensive rookie of the year. Mayo and Guyton could be special on the inside.

QB Matt Cassell - Patriots - 81 to 85 - Granted his receivers did all the work, but made smart decisions and passes all the way until the end.

CB Chris Johnson - Raiders - 71 to 79 - Paired with Asomugha to dominate opposing WR’s when both active. The other Chris Johnson replaced DeAngelo Hall and was better.

G Robert Gallery - Raiders - 85 to 87 - A bright spot on the Raiders offensive line. His shift to guard has helped out his career.

WR Lance Moore - Saints - 80 to 84 - Closed out the year with a big game and led the Saints in all receiving stats.

CB Ike Taylor - Steelers - 92 to 93 - Wide receivers can’t seem to see him lately. He just bats it down and lets them know.

HB Steve Slaton - Texans - 85 to 87 - My vote for top rookie back (Slaton/Forte/Johnson)

WR Andre Johnson - Texans - 97 to 98 - Dominated Charles Tillman and Al Harris to end the season. Is just better than everyone else.

HB Chris Johnson - Titans - 85 to 86 - Has flourished playing behind an excellent line. We’ll see what he’s got in the playoffs.

WR Justin Gage - Titans - 81 to 83 - Played big in games where the Titans had to pass the ball.

CB Cedric Griffin - Vikings - 83 to 85 - Was bad the first half of the season, but the last half and playoff game was the best corner the Vikings had.

WR Bernard Berrian - Vikings - 85 to 86 - Lead the league in YPC in a bad passing offense.

Ratings Down

CB Charles Tillman - Bears - 92 to 90 - Took a beating by opposing WR’s down the stretch.

LT Levi Jones - Bengals - 85 to 82 - Was pretty bad in pass blocking before ending up on IR.

LT Jason Peters - Bills - 96 to 94 - Made the Pro Bowl. Gave up a league high sacks at the LT position.

CB Dre Bly - Broncos - 89 to 87 - Was awful in Denver this season with no pass rush.

DE Elvis Dumervil - Broncos - 87 to 85 - Offered no pass rush in Denver this year.

HB LaDainian Tomlinson - Chargers - 99 to 97 - Closed out his 8th season with his lowest yards (1,110) and second lowest TD total (11). Averaging 4.4 YPC for his career with 126 TD’s.

WR Marvin Harrison - Colts - 92 to 89 - Is a shadow of his old self. Looks slow and can’t beat press coverage anymore (he still gets deep because corners underestimate him).

HB Joseph Addai - Colts - 91 to 90 - A bad and dinged up season this year for Indy. The health of the offensive line was a big factor.

WR Terrell Owens - Cowboys - 98 to 96 - The party is over. A 35 year old receiver who doesn’t get open anymore won’t be given such leeway.

WR Roy Williams - Cowboys - 92 to 91 - Was not able to get open in Dallas.

FS Reggie Nelson - Jaguars - 92 to 89 - Suffered from Sophomore slump and injuries. Was beaten several times very badly and had few INT’s to show for his gambling and lack of physicality.

QB Brett Favre - Jets - 94 to 89 - Played the Jets out of the playoffs. While guys like Leon Washington were winning the Jets games, Brett was losing them and keeping them out of games.

TE Ben Watson - Patriots - 87 to 84 - Was on the field a ton, but not part of Matt Cassel’s plan.

G Jacob Bell - Rams - 92 to 88 - A big bust acquired by the Rams in the offseason. Didn’t do much.

WR Torry Holt - Rams - 93 to 92 - Looks to be out of St. Louis and its time. No longer an elite #1 WR.

DE Jason Taylor - Redskins - 97 to 96 - Was banged up all season and didn’t do much, although looked better at the end of the season.

DE Andre Carter - Redskins - 88 to 87 - Combined with Jason Taylor to underachieve at the end position.

DE Will Smith - Saints - 90 to 89 - Did nothing except water pills this season in New Orleans.

TE Jeremy Shockey - Saints - 93 to 91 - Is a shell of his former self and not worth the crap that seems to follow him.

CB Marcus Trufant - Seahawks - 93 to 91 - Had an awful year this year after a very good one last season.

C Matt Birk - Vikings - 93 to 90 - No longer an elite Center and likely out of Minnesota.

S Darren Sharper - Vikings - 90 to 88 - Hasn’t been the same and probably will be phased out of Minnesota. Can still start somewhere but isn’t the player he was.
