The return of the NFL regular season is upon us, which means players in the league will react – normally in shock and with great disappointment – to their ranking in the latest installment of the Madden video game franchise.
In descending order, pave the way for The Washington football team is made up of Kyle Fuller (89 total), Terry McLaurin (89 total), Jonathan Allen (88 total), Brandon Scherff (87 total), Da’Ron Payne (87 total) ) and Chase Young (86 in total).
Impressively, the football team saw several other players fall into the 80-89 threshold, including Matthew Ioannidis (86), William Jackson (86), Curtis Samuel (83), Tress Way (82), Antonio Gibson (82) and Sweat Montez (82).
We could take a tangent on how some players deserve higher ratings – where’s Logan Thomas? – but let’s focus this conversation on Jamin Davis, who turned 73 in total, just below Erek Flowers and just above Steven Sims.
Needless to say, Davis thinks better of himself than a 73, and the rookie delivered a perfect answer when he heard the news.
LB football team Jamin Davis is not happy with his Madden rating.
Look what you did, Madden. Davis’ comments prove that he is going to cast his frustration on his opponents, for whom we must now pray.
Cincinnati is the lead on Saturday, so it’s up to them to decide whether to bench Joe Burrow ahead of time. They must have had a preview of the notes before they were posted and responded accordingly. I’m just kidding!
It should be noted that Davis scored superb in the athletics department, receiving 90 in speed, 92 in acceleration, 84 in agility, 87 in endurance and 86 in pursuit. He also received a respectable score of 85 tackles.
However, it’s clear Madden has questions about his other intangibles, as the first-round pick got 68 in game recognition, 66 in block shedding, 61 (!) On men’s cover, 69 in zone coverage, 73 in force and 74 in change of direction.
We know Davis is far from a finished product, but we’re talking about a player who recorded 102 tackles (four for a loss) 1.5 sacks and three interceptions in his last year at Kentucky. It’s as ready as it gets for the NFL, guys.
It helps that Davis is tied with fellow LB Zaven Collins and top rusher Kwity Paye, but it’s still insulting that he finished just ahead of Kadarius Toney (72), Rashod Bateman (72) and Mac Jones (71) .
We already know Davis had an elite mentality, but these comments only hammer home that point and prove that he’s going to use it as bulletin board material.
Come back later in the season when Davis flies all over the field to play and become a star in the midst of Washington’s defense. At this point, Madden will know better than to underestimate overall pick # 19 again.
