The John Madden NFL video game franchise just might be the best thing that has ever happened to the video game world — at least I think so. Every year, people wait in line to get the game and spend endless hours trying to make their favorite team a Super Bowl champ.
With the release of the game set for August 26, the NFL rookies are getting their first taste of seeing themselves in a video game.
The people at Madden sat down with some of the 2014 rookies and asked them what they thought their ratings would be. Their reactions to this information was quite funny.
Jeremy Hill of the Cincinnati Bengals said he might cry if his speed was below a 90. Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans thinks his speed should be a 91 and the Bills Sammy Watkins says, “shoot, 100!”
Johnny Manziel of the Cleveland Browns believes his accuracy should be between 88-92.
The best to me has to be Jacksonville Jaguars’ QB Blake Bortless caring about his punting.
Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron is also shown in the video as he reacts to what his actual ratings are.
Others in the video are Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin, Oakland Raiders LB Khalil Mack, and Tre Mason of the St. Louis Rams.
