As noted, the demo for EA Sports' Madden NFL 13 is officially live on the Xbox Marketplace, and will be coming to PS3 users later on in the day (this afternoon). You can Tweet us at @sbnbayarea or @JamesBradySBN with your thoughts on the demo for a chance to win a free copy on release day, but until then, we've got some ratings for you.
It's been tough to hold on to these ratings without posting them, but I haven't been allowed. Now that the demo is out, I can share the full ratings for the 49ers. There are some negative surprises, like Alex Smith dropping in rating and Bruce Miller getting the short end of the stick, but there's also some positives. Ray McDonald being in the nineties is a great sign and there's plenty of 49ers that get their fair shake.
There's also Randy Moss at 84 - the highest-rated 49ers receiver. So there's that. Anyway, make the jump for the full list of 49ers player ratings and be sure to get at us for your chance to win. We'll have updates throughout the season as EA releases roster updates, as well.
