Tuesday open thread: Which Lions player was most underrated in Madden NFL 20?

It’s been decided: Madden ratings release day is one of my favorite Twitter holidays. It’s got everything I like about the platform. There’s outrage over trivial, arbitrary stuff that is purported as being objective, and there’s a whole lot of @’ing the company responsible for this mess—and reaction videos like this to boot:

None of this stuff existed 10 years ago because there was this generational gap where veterans weren’t Madden players their entire adolescent life, and there just wasn’t the opportunity for players to get online and react in real time to the news that their short-route running is a 91 and post a video of them literally sipping tea.
