‘Madden 21’ must be joking with its QB ratings of Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady

‘Madden 21’ must be joking with its QB ratings of Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady

EA Sports disrespected Aaron Rodgers in its initial “Madden 21” ratings reveal this week, giving him an 89 overall mark just behind Tom Brady (90) and significantly behind Drew Brees (93).

The Packers quarterback is six years younger than Brady and four years younger than Brees, and he worked behind a worse offensive line last year while outplaying TB12 and showing more durability than Brees. He also posted the best regular season record and reached the NFC championship game.

There’s a good case for Brees to have a better rating than Rodgers given his success when healthy in 2019, but a four point difference might be too extreme and it’s likely a drop-off in play is imminent. Brady though? That’s a joke.
