Raven’s quarterback, Lamar Jackson has become Madden’s fastest quarterback achieving a 96-speed rating.
The Monday night game in Los Angeles saw Lamar Jackson become Madden’s fastest QB, taking over from Michael Vick. When Madden updates its player ratings on Thursday, Jackson will achieve a 96-speed rating. Michael Vick held the previous record of 95.
The “changing of the guard” was announced on Twitter on Tuesday and it was later confirmed by the “Madden NFL 20” Twitter account. The tweet said: “From one Madden legend to another. @Lj_era8 takes the title of the fastest QB in Madden history.”
Michael Vick in a tweet said that it was an honor and privilege to be able to pass something on to the next generation. He then shared a Nike cleat that read “Not bad for an RB.”
Earlier, critics had brought Jackson’s throwing ability into question. They had doubted that Jackson had the throwing accuracy to be an NFL quarterback. But the Ravens player and MVP
the front-runner has successfully quieted his critics. After the Ravens’ 59-10 Week 1 defeat of the Dolphins, the critics said: “Not bad for a running back.”
Referring to the critics, Vick said: “Now they’re eating their words. Lamar is the new-era quarterback and he deserves the crown.” Vick also stated that the changing of the guard is a welcome development. “Records are made to be broken. The next generation is expected to do better than we did. I’ve got to give credit where credit is due. I say it’s your turn now” the former Madden fastest QB added.
Lamar Jackson set a number of records in the Monday night game against the Rams and this includes the first player with five touchdown passes in a Monday Night Football debut, the Youngest player in the history of the NFL with multiple five-touchdown-pass games. He is also the first player in NFL history with no less than 3,000 passing yards and 1,500 rushing yards in his first two seasons.
