Madden 20: Social media reacts to Lamar Jackson’s speed bump to 96
The Madden 20 team decided to up Baltimore Ravens star Lamar Jackson’s speed to 96, making him the fastest quarterback ever in the game. How did fans react?
Remember Madden 04 and playing with Michael Vick? He was a legitimate cheat code and broke a lot of controllers and friendships with his skills. Now, the mantle has been passed on to the next generation via Lamar Jackson.
Recently, “Action” Jackson received himself a buff to the game because of how well he’s been playing. now, Jackson sits at a 90 overall and, well, Jackson’s speed got a boost up to a 96 overall, surpassing Michael Vick as the fastest quarterback to play in the game… uh oh.
Yeah… Jackson’s speed is nasty. Just take a look at this footage from the B/R Gridiron Twitter account.
Do you want more? Go to YouTube.com and type in the search bar “Lamar Jackson Madden 20” and check out some of the HUNDREDS of videos of the 22-year old quarterback making guys look foolish.
It’s so much fun to watch Jackson do it by himself in real life, but in a video game where you control all the players you want, it’s that much better. There’s this sense of confidence one gets just by having Jackson in the fold. His passing is dramatically improved, but more importantly, you can scramble around all day and evade defenders with his built-in superstar abilities.
He’s broken, it’s as simple as that. If you’re picking the Baltimore Ravens just to user Lamar Jackson you’re a bad friend or older brother! Trust me on this one…
Legendary Madden cover athlete Michael Vick congratulated Jackson on his accomplishments with some bomb looking shoes:
The “Not bad for a running back” has to be the coup de grace of the shoes, making their swagger shoot off the charts. They sure would awesome on Lamar Jackson during game day, but I’d tuck those bad boys away as a reminder of his accomplishment.
Madden 20 is far from a big deal to NFL players. Sure, it’s fun to get your Madden rating higher and see new editions of yourself come out weekly in Madden Ultimate Team (MUT), but players don’t pay attention to it. Lamar Jackson clearly realizes how cool of a feat he just reached, but the focus remains on winning real-life games. By seasons end, I’m sure he’ll be a 99 overall and he won’t even blink at it.
