On Tuesday, EA Sports released the newest version of “Madden” to the general public. It’s an excellent game, very lifelike, tons of cool new features. But not everyone is happy with every aspect. For instance, Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant got angry about his rating.
Coming off an injury-plagued 2015, Bryant was only given a 90 rating and he let the makers of the game know.
“I play Madden, I [expletive] love Madden,” Bryant said. “They would do me like that? Oh my God. That is an insult, like why would you do that to me? How much I love y’all. Like what? Not John Madden, because I love him. It’s the developers.”
Well the makers of the popular football video game had an explanation for the issue. It’s Bryant’s lack of kicking skills, as they informed him on Twitter with the following message:
Said message also included a video of Dez kicking. It’s not pretty, but it is hilarious.
Who knew that Dez was a lefty? Or that he couldn’t even hit the ball straight?
What can you say to that? They set him up and they shut him down. Checkmate city.
Dez knew it too.
Even with Dez battling a concussion right now, it’s not hard to imagine him coming back and posting a huge 2016. He has looked outstanding in the preseason thus far and if you were a betting man, you’d probably want to bet on the side of his rating going up.
“Madden” won this battle but Bryant will probably come out ahead in the long run.
