Tuesday, Madden ignored the numbers and opted to turn off its audience by adding Colin Kaepernick to its 2021 video game. The decision to add a non-football player to a football game is absurd and laughable. Furthermore, EA’s approach to going as woke as live sports included rating the former backup QB ahead of half the starting QBs.
Best tweet you will find today.
What a laughable decision by EA Sports to add a non-football player to a football game. https://t.co/GaYl6qoNDx

A decision this dumb can only be handled one way: with hilarious tweets dunking all over the former respectable video game company.
Just brilliant work from Twitter:
Gonna be sad when even in Madden he gets benched for Blaine Gabbert https://t.co/nCUaClvuCs

This won’t help with that.
Madden is probably the single worst major gaming franchise. https://t.co/UnBzlWU2x3

They will create an auto win function when you play him because there is no way they will bring back the failing stats that got him benched for Blaine Gabbert. https://t.co/sC40hpDKye

Insert your favorite emoji.
Madden has added Colin Kaepernick to the newest version of the game, and he's rated higher than former NFL MVP Cam Newton and rookie of the year Kyler Murray.
Has Madden 21 created a mode that allows you to lose your job for failing to read a defense?
This is insanity.

Colin Kaepernick is rated higher than Cam Newton in Madden 21 🤣. Hall of fame level pandering.

Ryan Tannehill: *leads the league with the highest passer rating*
Madden: 80 overall
Collin Kaepernick: *doesn’t play football for years*
Madden: 81 overall

Kaepernick's Madden rating
Idk why y'all so upset, that's what happens when you haven't thrown a INT in four years… https://t.co/VjDSaiWbI1
