EA Sports Doubles Down on Getting Woke with MADDEN 21

 

Proving that even sports video games have to be #woke now, EA Sports’ Madden, for the first time since 2016, has put America-hating Colin Kaepernick in this year’s edition (Madden 21) of the game and went so far as to rank him higher than half the quarterbacks in the league.

 

 

 

Ben Roethlisberger is tied with Kaepernick. Kaepernick has an 81 overall rating. NFL pundit Dov Kleiman notes on Twitter, that Kaepernick’s ranking is better than half the league’s starting quarterbacks.  Here are the people Colin’s ahead of, and their ratings:

 

  • Tyrod Taylor: 69
  • Dwayne Haskins: 70
  • Gardner Minshew: 70
  • Drew Lock: 70
  • Mitchell Trubisky: 72
  • Daniel Jones: 72
  • Sam Darnold: 73
  • Ryan Fitzpatrick: 74
  • Teddy Bridgewater: 75
  • Joe Burrow: 76
  • Jared Goff: 76
  • Kyler Murray : 77
  • Josh Allen: 77
  • Cam Newton: 78
  • Derek Carr: 79
  • Ryan Tannehill: 80

 

 

Does Colin Kaepernick deserve to be ranked above average current starter in the NFL, after missing the last three full seasons?

 

Can you say “pandering,” EA Sports?

 

And don’t get me started on the glitches in the game. It’s just awful on every level.
