For those who are interested, There is an article written about the process that EA has in selecting player ratings.  There is 1 person who does ALL of the ratings, known as the "Ratings Czar."  It's a fun read, and it has sliders so you can see what some of your ratings would be in Madden.

Look at the first picture of Moore - Over the phone in the top right corner there's two framed photos. In the right-most picture it appears there's someone wearing a UM helmet.

For some reason this reminds me of Ethan Albright's letter to Madden after being rated the worst player in Madden 2007. For those who are not familiar, it's hilarious:

"It’s also pretty wonderful that my awareness rating was 59. You make it sound like I wake up in the morning, helplessly shit and piss myself, then lose three of my teeth before I discover that I am trying to eat a rock for breakfast."
