With player ratings for Madden 21, the newest editions of the popular NFL video game franchise, being announced this week, fans have been reacting all across the Twittersphere. Of course, some players have been reacting to their personal ratings too.
Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White has been campaigning for a high-90 grade after a breakout season in 2019, but Madden didn't quite give him the upgrade he expected.
A bump from 89 to 90 had White laughing, crying and sighing on Twitter all at once. White has a point though. Graded out as a 75.6 on Pro Football Focus (PFF), he was one of the top corners in the league last year. Here are the other top cornerback grades on Madden 21.
By comparison, Jalen Ramsey and Jaire Alexander both received lower season grades from PFF, and Stephon Gilmore was only about seven points higher (82.8 grade on PFF) despite joining the coveted 99 Club on Madden.
Something doesn't quite add up here for White, but perhaps the slight will be corrected during Madden's first roster update. If not, Tre'Davious was just given another reason to silence any doubters in 2020, and the mark to beat is within the AFC East on the division rival New England Patriots.
Bills versus Pats, White versus Gilmore, this just got personal!
