Very interesting. Steve over at Operation Sports tweeted Ian and Donny about this. Hopefully we can get a description about what this rating means.

Well, "swagger" is how someone handles a situation. So that probably means 4th quarter play?

This might have something to do with it.

I believe that there is no shame in 18-1, only pride.

I can't say for sure, but it appears as an individual rating. I can't imagine that if you trade Ed Reed to the Rams that he loses his swagger of 97 (actually the Ravens didn't list among the 15 teams). His morale will take a hit though.

2011: 49ers lose in NFC Championship Game on two special teams turnovers
2013: 49ers lose in NFC Championship Game on three Colin Kaepernick turnovers
Who's got it better than the 49ers? The Giants, the Ravens, and the Seahawks. And the Chiefs.

I like Old Spice's thing. All those things you need to have swagger is awesome. That, or it's just a marketing ploy. Hopefully, they successfully work this in Madden 11.

Go, Seahawks!

I hate the sound of it. "Swagger." Dumb. But besides the name, I think it's important to note that the emotion some players bring to the game will make the difference between a win and a loss. Some players lack the confidence to play defense in the red zone, and their indecisiveness and hesitation costs them plays they would most likely make at midfield. Similar things could be said about players who can catch balls in the flats all day, but can't catch a ball in midfield where they might get hit. If you can infer "swagger" from stats, that could be a pretty cool mechanic.

they had time to get endorsements from Old Spice on a useless rating but no time to upgrade Offline Franchise....

still trying to figure out what this means because it confused me but the 15 teams.... wow. I know for Madden all teams will have that rating but the 15 teams on that list... Seattle & KC at 12 & 13, um ok them over the Ravens in which even though they don't have all of them they do have that one stat, the taking it on the road requirement as they have won pretty big Road Games the last couple years:

Taking It on The Road: Ravens beat Dallas in 2008 at Texas Stadium, they went into SD(who is # 6) and beat the Chargers at home last season, they beat Miami and Tennessee on the road in the playoffs in 2008, they went into NE and smashed the Patriots last season.... Check!

The Ravens are 20-12 the last 2 seasons with a 3-2 post season record while the Chiefs are 6-26 the last two seasons and are at 13.... I can see Seattle being on the list but KC over the Ravens? Wow, those Old Spice people need to really do their homework because if they did KC wouldn't be on this list.

Was I the only one who laughed out loud at this? I don't see anything wrong with the rating, but I just think it's funny that my video games are now advertising my deodorant.
