Arizona Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon blasts Madden over rating
Arizona Cardinals linebacker Deone Bucannon had 112 tackles, three sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception last season. Those kinds of numbers earned him some respect around the league, but apparently the makers of Madden 17 are a little slow to catch on.
Bucannon has an overall rating of just 78 in the game. That’s not sitting well with him. He blasted the game’s Twitter account over his low rating:
@EAMaddenNFL smfh… 78…..

“SMFH” is an acronym for shaking my bleeping head.
The highest-rated player on the Cardinals is DB Tyrann Mathieu, who has a 96. The Honey Badger thinks Madden hasn’t done their homework on Bucannon:
Really tho! Clearly didn't watched the tape… https://t.co/8HCemX2Ww3

Maybe the tweet will get Madden’s attention and help the video game give him some respect when they do their reevaluation. At least he’s attacking his disappointment with his rating more directly than this Broncos QB.
