With the NBA season now over and free agency taking the sports world by storm, it’s almost time to hit the gridiron once again. The 2019-20 NFL season is quickly approaching, and that means Madden season is upon us. With the arrival of the latest game in the famed football video game franchise, it’s time to see how this year’s crop of NFL rookies reacts to their in-game ratings. As expected they were not too pleased with them and hilariously responded.

It should come as no surprise these upstarts believe they have tremendous potential but after seeing their cyber versions ratings in the game are quite humbled and honestly surprised issuing rebuttals to what Madden’s ranking experts assessments of their on-field skills.
While we understand why they are upset with their rankings, they’re definitely gonna have an opportunity to show why their rankings could be higher on the field.
