Highest Rated Browns in Madden Video Game History

It was recently announced that Myles Garrett will be joining the 99 club for the next Crazy 23 game and he deserves it, but it got me thinking, what other Cleveland Browns have been rated this high?

A few things to keep in mind as you go through this list. I only use the release notes. I thought it was fair to use the rankings used when the game was released, as players like Jamir Miller, Tre Johnson and Courtney Brown didn’t benefit from the mid-season updates online.

It is also important to note that although the mad game has been released every year since 1988, I only used ratings from 1999 and before. There are several reasons for this because the first is that something before this year is very hard to find, honestly, Crazy 2000 the notes were almost impossible to find online, but the second reason is that the first game notes were crazy. The players didn’t have a general, they just had a few traits and they only went up to 15. For reference, Bernie Kosar didn’t have a general but had an 11 in passing range and 12 in passing accuracy.

Also keep in mind that the mad games are named for the year the season is over, so Crazy 23 is actually for the 2022 season. Here are the 11 highest rated Cleveland Browns in mad video game history i will only name each player once based on their highest rating so joe thomas despite being highly rated for his entire career will only be listed once time :

Fun fact before we start, the Browns have never seen a quarterback hit the 90 overall range since returning.

All Cleveland Browns fans will remember Courtney Brown, who was the first overall selection in the 2000 NFL Draft. Most will remember Brown as a bust, but people forget he was a freight train his rookie season, earning All-Rookie honors, so it would make sense for the 2001 season to be rated so highly.

Brown was also the only Brown above 90 overall in Crazy 2003 at 93, but he never reached those heights of excellence in a mad game again.

10th (tie) – Shaun Rogers – 94 overall, Madden 2009

Shaun Rogers had lasting power as he was rated over 90 overall in the three seasons he was in Cleveland, with 2009 being his best. Rogers was 94 in 2009, 92 in 2010 and 93 in 2011. Rogers was a huge addition for Cleveland when they traded to the Detroit Lions and he didn’t disappoint, earning a Pro nod Bowl his first season for the Browns in 2008.

6th (tie) – LeCharles Bentley – 95 overall, Madden 2007

LeCharles Bentley was the 2006 award free agent and Bentley signed with the Cleveland Browns after dominating with the New Orleans Saints, where he was an All-Rookie and a two-time Pro Bowler. His time in Cleveland was derailed by injuries to the point that he never took a snap. Bentley tore his patellar tendon, which led to a serious infection that cut short his entire career.

Virtual LeCharles Bentley, on the other hand, was a revelation for the Browns. Bentley earned an overall rating of 95 in Crazy 2007 and 90 in total in Crazy 2008.

6th (tie) – Braylon Edwards – 95 overall, Madden 2009

Braylon Edwards was expected to be a star after the Cleveland Browns selected him with the third overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft and in 2007 he showed exactly why he was selected too high as he was an All-Pro this season. The team at mad apparently thought the fun would continue as they gave Edwards an overall rating of 95 for next season. Edwards would not crack 90 overall for the rest of his career.

6th (tie) – Eric Steinbach – 95 overall, Madden 2009

The Cleveland Browns signed Eric Steinbach in free agency before the 2007 season after dominating with the Cincinnati Bengals. The Browns made Steinbach the highest paid offensive lineman in NFL history and he proved to be worth every penny. Steinbach was a constant beast in mad as well as sports ratings of 94 overall in Crazy 200895 in total in Crazy 200993 in total in Crazy 201091 in total in Crazy 2011.

The Cleveland Browns selected Joe Haden seventh overall in the 2010 NFL Draft and he had a glorious career in Cleveland winning All-Rookie honors, All-Pro honors once and Pro Bowl honors three times . Haden was equally phenomenal in mad with overall marks of 92 in Crazy 201391 in total in Crazy 201495 in total in Crazy 2015and 90 in total in Crazy 2016.

5th (tie) – Odell Beckham Jr. – 96 overall, Madden 2020

The Cleveland Browns acquired Odell Bekckham Jr. in a blockbuster off-season trade from the New York Giants in 2019 and as you can see from his noble mad note, Beckham was to continue his elite career. Unfortunately, injuries took their toll on Beckham and he was released in 2021. It was the only season Beckham went over 90 overall with the Browns.

5th (tie) – Nick Chubb – 96 overall, Madden 2022 and Madden 2023

The Clevland Browns drafted Nick Chubb in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft and he was a three-time Pro Bowler and named All-Pro once. Chubb is on the verge of becoming a Browns legend and his mad the grades reflect that with a 92 overall in Crazy 2021 and 96 in total in both Crazy 2022 and Crazy 2023.

3rd – Kellen Winslow II – 97 overall, Madden 2009

Kellen Winslow II was selected sixth overall by the Cleveland Browns in the 2004 NFL Draft and, like Braylon Edwards, had a phenomenal 2007 season that the creators of mad thought he would enjoy next season as evidenced by the overall rating of 97 in Crazy 2009. Winslow was also highly ranked in Crazy 2008 to 94 in total.

2nd – Joe Thomas – 98 overall, Madden 2015

Garrett was devastating in mad since Crazy 2020 when it was a total 91 and every year it has increased. In Crazy 2021Garrett was 93 overall, Crazy 2022 Garrett was 98 in total and of course this year at Madden 2023 Garrett is joining the 99 club.
