49ers rookie QB Trey Lance reveals prediction for Madden NFL rating

May 16, 2021 at 10:23 AM--


Players around the NFL are often disappointed by their Madden NFL video game ratings, pleading with the game manufacturer, EA Sports, to give them a boost.

The Checkdown asked some of the rookie quarterbacks from this year's draft class to predict their Madden NFL 22 ratings for the upcoming season. It's always difficult to rate rookies because they have yet to prove anything in the league.

Trey Lance was among those asked to predict their ratings in the upcoming release of the football video game franchise, and the San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback sounded optimistic about his potential rating. Maybe too optimistic.

Lance believes his Madden rating should be 88 "because I can do a lot of things, I can make plays."


The 49ers quarterback isn't the only one being a little too hopeful.

Mac Jones of the New England Patriots feels that his rating will be lower than he probably deserves but still feels it could land at about 85. Justin Fields of the Chicago Bears is a bit more realistic, feeling that his rating will probably be between 78 to 81, which would be extremely good for a rookie quarterback. Zach Wilson, the No. 2 overall pick by the New York Jets, predicted the group's highest rating, saying his should be 90.

Wow. 90.

It's worth noting that the highest ever Madden rating for a rookie quarterback was an 83, earned by Andrew Luck, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts. Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals was last year's highest rated rookie quarterback with a rating of 76.

Needless to say, some of these rookie quarterbacks might be disappointed by their ratings when they are revealed this summer.

Just like he did on so many occasions from 2017 to 2021, Jimmy Garoppolo took to the podium on Thursday to talk with reporters as the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback. Only this time the feeling was a little different, based on the unusual circumstances surrounding the current 49ers' quarterback situation. After an offseason and preseason full of speculation over where the 49ers would send him in a trade, Garoppolo now finds himself preparing for the 49ers' Week 3 game against the Denver Broncos after the player who was expected to replace him, Trey Lance, suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the team's 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. The last several weeks have been a roller coaster ride for Garoppolo, who went from being trade bait earlier in the

Did 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan mismanage Trey Lance? Baldy weighs in

There has been much debate surrounding who is to blame for Trey Lance's season-ending ankle injury. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback rushed 16 times for 67 yards in his five quarters of play this season. Is that too much for an inexperienced quarterback who you are trying to develop into a better passer? The setback has postponed Lance's development for yet another season. Now, Jimmy Garoppolo is the starting quarterback moving forward. Many have placed the blame on head coach Kyle Shanahan's shoulders. After all, he is the play designer and play-caller. Lance's usage was totally up to him. What does respected NFL analyst Brian Baldinger think of how Shanahan utilized his 22-year-old quarterback during his abbreviated second NFL season? The



49ers QB Trey Lance could make full recovery within 10 to 12 weeks, says surgeon

Trey Lance will likely head to injured reserve soon. On Monday, the quarterback underwent what most assumed to be season-ending surgery to repair the damage suffered when he broke his ankle against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. On a conference call with reporters this week, head coach Kyle Shanahan sounded pretty confident that Lance would be ready to go for Week 1 of the 2023 season. One expert isn't so sure the injury is season-ending, though. Foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Kenneth Jung, a consultant to the Los Angeles Rams, believes Lance could be fully healed within 10 to 12 weeks. Assuming the lengthier estimated recovery time, that might make him available after Week 14. However, the shorter estimate could mean Lance is healthy after Week
