On Wednesday, I wrote about T.J. Watt possibly being snubbed when it comes to his Madden NFL 22 rating that was just released, as that resulted in him being the third-ranked edge rusher in the league behind Myles Garrett and Khalil Mack. While that Watt Madden rating might look bad to most Steelers fans, it pales in comparison to the one that safety Minkah Fitzpatrick received.
On Thursday, the Madden 22 safety ratings surfaced and hold on to your hat, Fitzpatrick is ranked 10th overall in the game with a 89 overall rating.
That revelation and news really blew up on social media. Even Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson commented on the disrespect that the Madden game is showing Fitzpatrick.
“Stop trying my boy Minkah!! Best safety in the league smh,” Johnson tweeted.
Fitzpatrick has been a Pro Bowl and first-team All-Pro selection the last two seasons, so it’s really hard for one to wrap one’s head around him being ranked 10th-best on any safety list ahead of the 2021 season getting underway.
At worst, Fitzpatrick should probably be ranked second overall.
