Cardinals’ Budda Baker is not too pleased with his Madden Rating

Jul 11, 2018, 8:15 AM | Updated: 9:45 pm

Who doesn’t love Madden?

You get the chance to play as your favorite team, using your favorite players and — more than likely — you’re winning a championship every year.

Well, for one Arizona Cardinal, there is definitely love lost.

While the typical “how is this possible?!” tweet is usual for some NFL players when the player ratings are released, safety Budda Baker may have a point.

The second-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft made a name for himself during his rookie campaign with the Cardinals.

Baker was utilized on both special teams and defense, causing issues for opposing squads. With 74 tackles on the year, he was the fourth-leading tackler on the team and also recorded a sack and forced two fumbles on defense. On special teams, he posted a league-leading 13 stops.

For his special teams efforts, Baker was a first-team All-Pro and received Pro Bowl honors.

Yet, here we are with a sub-80 rating.

At least he won’t have to sit through a game of Madden thinking what should have been.

And from the look of it, Twitter was pretty shocked too.

Safe to say EA Sports has some explaining to do.
