Madden 20 is not off to a great start, giving out just four 99 overall ratings to NFL players and Von Miller is not among them.
If you’re getting ready to buy Madden 20 and you’re a Denver Broncos fan, you might be interested to know that the Broncos’ star player is not among Madden’s elite 99 overall club.
Miller has been a 99 overall in the past, but for whatever reason, the people in charge of putting together Madden’s ratings decided this year, he wasn’t going to be included in that club.
What is required to get into the 99 club?
Why was Miller in and then out?
I don’t think anyone is going to disagree that Aaron Donald deserves to be on this list. Donald is probably the most dominant player in the NFL at any position, capable of completely wrecking games and he does that on a very consistent basis.
Bobby Wagner is one of the best off-ball linebackers in the NFL and has only missed two games in the last four years while racking up 553 tackles in that timeframe.
But 99 overall in a video game? I don’t know about that.
The part of this whole thing I’m really sick of? Khalil Mack continually being elevated over Miller.
I just don’t get it.
Mack is one of the best defensive players in football. A true game-changing athlete who should have never been traded away from Oakland and a player who is certainly deserving of a ton of recognition.
It just bothers me that he gets it at the expense of Von Miller. And when I say, “at the expense of,” it’s not just a Broncos fan overreacting.
People consistently elevate Mack over Miller despite Miller having the Super Bowl MVP hardware.
In fact, Mack won Defensive MVP by one vote over Miller in the 2016 season when Miller basically carried the Broncos to nine wins and proved himself after signing a huge contract extension.
Ever since Mack came into the league, he’s taken over as the ‘next best thing’ and Miller has been recognized for his greatness, of course, but Mack has been clearly elevated and I can’t figure out the reason.
Madden could have at the very least had both guys rated 99.
I am only writing about this because it’s something to talk about. I don’t play the game so it doesn’t affect me, but for those who do play the game and care about how it’s put together, it’s a shame that Miller is underrated, even if he’s a 98.
