'Madden 10' analysis of the Steelers

The good news: The defense looks unstoppable.
An amazing five players have overall ratings of 91 or higher. Good luck driving down the field against this group.
The bad news: Not much bad here. Even tailback Willie Parker has (95 speed, 95 acceleration) great ratings despite coming off a down year. William Gay (63 overall) could have been rated higher, but he's unproven so that might be nitpicking.
Overall: Where I'm from, a team like Pittsburgh is off limits. The defending Super Bowl champions usually own extremely high ratings to where it's not even fun playing with or against them.
You won't find the Steelers getting much run in the Walker household this year.
By the way, I'm thinking of opening an AFC North blog "Madden" challenge this summer. But I'm on the road a lot in August during training camps, so it could be tough.
