Minkah Fitzpatrick takes issue with his Madden 22 rating

As we’ve mentioned when listing the Madden ratings at various positions for the upcoming edition of the game, some players could be motivated by the rating they’ve received. Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick definitely will take motivation from the fact that he has landed at No. 10 among all safeties, with a rating of 89.

I don’t even know what to say anymore,” Fitzpatrick tweeted.

The safeties who rank ahead of Fitzpatrick include Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu (95), Cardinals safety Budda Baker (93), Patriots safety Devin McCourty (93), Bengals safety Jessie Bates III (91), Broncos safety Justin Simmons (91), Seahawks safety Jamal Adams (90), Vikings safety Harrison Smith (90), Bears safety Eddie Jackson (89), and Packers safety Adrian Amos (89).

Will that make a difference for Minkah in 2021? Who knows? Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. But it’s definitely the kind of thing that a professional athlete will use in order to spur himself to play at the highest level possible.

  1. It’s a video game. Concentrate on the real thing you get paid millions to play…not a broken game!

  2. He’s the best pure ball-hawking safety in the game—and it’s really not all that close.

  3. I like that these guys have their priorities in order.
    They’re upset over their video game rankings. I hope this doesn’t distract him from performing well on the field.
    Maybe he would like it better if Madden didn’t have him listed at all.

  4. Guy is overrated. He was dealt for a season. He was diagnosed as a selfish me player that freelances too much.

    Eddie Jackson is too low at 89. He’s probably the league’s best young Safety.

    Mathieu is way too high. Jamal Adams is also too high since he was outclassed by Adrian Phillips.

  5. He should worry more about his performance in that last playoff game, Yikes!

  6. I like that these guys have their priorities in order.
    They’re upset over their video game rankings. I hope this doesn’t distract him from performing well on the field.

    He’s spending about 30 seconds talking about it during the off-season. That’s less of a distraction than the charity work and hospital visits players do every Tuesday in-season that everybody loves.

  7. For my money:
    1. Honey Badger
    2. Adams (will be #1 next year)
    3. Smith
    4. Simmons
    5. Baker

  8. Can you imagine wasting your life playing these ridiculous video games they have for sports games now. Both Madden and 2K are scripted games. It’s laughable that anyone at all plays them

    PS – I have 6 different franchises running in NFL 2k5.

    You’re bankrupt.

    Adams is average. Top 5 mouth, but very average.

    1. Eddie Jackson
    2. Devin McCourty
    3. Simmons
    4. Smith
    5. Adrian Phillips (outperformed Adams)

  10. Get over it. Let your play do the talking not a video game. You can always have your family complain and get it changed like they did to get you out of Miami

  11. Stidham of New England is/was incredibly overrated, since we’re on that subject. Now he’s injured and his career could be over. Supposed to be the heir to Brady. Wasted pick along the lines of Todd Marinovich. Nice job, Belichick. It was all Brady.

  12. Ego and highly competitive nature is a big part of why these athletes make it to the highest platform in sports, they have both. I like when players on my team feel disrespected. I like when they get snubbed for pro bowls. Leaves them hungry and less leverage to demand more money.
