It’s going to be a rankings edition of notes today, folks.

The Internet — at least Twitter, where I live — is all in a flurry over Madden 21 ratings. Matthew Stafford was rated No. 3 in throwing power, behind Buffalo BillsJosh Allen and Kansas City ChiefsPatrick Mahomes. (It’s worth noting power does not equal accuracy.)

Stafford largely returned to his inner gunslinger ways this past season under offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell — much to many fans’ delight — and was on pace for a 5,000-yard season before his injury.

Despite his high throw power rating, the Motor City quarterback did not make the top quarterbacks of Madden 2021—presumably falling below an 84.

Looking forward to your comments.
