You have to give the NFL credit. There is always something on the calendar to keep fans — young and old — excited. As training camps are set to open for all of the NFL this week, ESPN is set to host “Madden Ratings Week” on Get Up, Sportscenter, NFL Live and First Take.
This event is scheduled to reveal the ratings for NFL players for the upcoming “Madden NFL 22” video game, which will be released next month.
Some ratings were released on Sunday, such as Matthew Stafford, who switched team from Detroit to the Los Angeles Rams, and he received an 83 overall rating.
So, in preparation for ratings week, several current Washington Football Team stars took turns guessing their individual ratings on the team’s official Twitter account.
Star defensive end Chase Young said he should be at “90 or above.”
Tight end Logan Thomas, one of Washington’s breakout players in 2020, said the following.
“My Madden rating has to go up from what it was last year, whatever the 63 it was last year,” Thomas said. So, I think it’s probably around 82, 83 now. I would assume somewhere in that area.”
He’s right. It should go up. And considerably.
Perhaps the most hilarious response was from wide receiver Terry McLaurin. McLaurin offered the following assessment.
“I think I should be, no lower than a 88, but if you asking me, I should say a 90,” McLaurin said. “90 is solid, like going into my third year, you know what I mean, I ain’t gonna say I’ve done did it all, but I feel like I’ve earned a 90 up until this point.”

So, what if McLaurin doesn’t get that 90 rating?
“So, if they see that I’m a 90, I feel that’s fair. But, if not, I’m gonna be calling up Chad Ochocinco.”
The former NFL star is a noted fan of McLaurin.
“Madden NFL 22” is originally scheduled to be released worldwide on Aug. 20.
