Tyrann Mathieu Goes On Twitter Tirade Over Other Star Players' Madden NFL 20 Ratings
The much anticipated player ratings for the Madden NFL 20 video game were released on Monday and set the NFL Twitterverse ablaze. From fans to coaches to video game connoisseurs and, most importantly, NFL players let their opinions be heard loud and clear. Most of the sentiment on Twitter was negative, but that's become the expectation over the years.
But one player in particular, Kansas City Chiefs' safety Tyrann Mathieu, decided to log on Twitter and go on a rant for the ages, about various players' ratings, firing off a slew of tweets conveying his opinion on certain players' Madden NFL 20 valuations.
He began with the defense of his former starting quarterback, Deshaun Watson, the third-year signal caller for the Houston Texans, making the claim that his rating was way too low.
On top of Watson, Mathieu also pointed out a couple of other quarterbacks' ratings that he felt got the short end of the stick. First, with a future Hall-of-Famer, New Orleans Saints' QB Drew Brees.
And then Seattle's Super-Bowl winning QB Russell Wilson.
He also backed up Los Angeles Chargers' WR Keenan Allen's displeasure with his Madden rating, something that the receiver claims will cause him to boycott this year's game in protest.
Mathieu didn't only stick to the offensive side of the ball, also voicing his displeasure with the ratings of Chargers' CB Desmond King and Denver Broncos' CB Chris Harris.
While lots of players have some complaint about their own Madden rating, it's rare that you see another NFL player be so critical of other players' ratings. But, then again, the Honey Badger likely knows what he's talking about.
