There’s a massive disrespect being shown to several Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter the 2020 season as one of the hottest teams in the league, but that still won’t stop massive disrespect from being thrown their way.

The player ratings for the NFL’s newest game- Madden 21– have been released and that includes all of our favorite Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

While there is major respect for TE Rob Gronkowski– who received a 95 rating- and QB Tom Brady– who is listed with a 96 rating- many other Buccaneers are criminally underrated.

The massive disrespect for the Buccaneers is unreal

Here’s a look at just a little glimpse of what we’re talking about:

  • Shaquil Barrett: 85 rating

Despite being the league’s sack leader a season ago, Shaq Barrett doesn’t even break the 90 rating and he is barely inside the top-10 of the outside linebacker group. He’s behind names like Darius Leonard, T.J. Watt and Kyle Van Noy. But that’s not all.

  • Mike Evans: 92 rating
  • Chris Godwin: 88 rating

Mike Evans isn’t even rated as a top-5 wide receiver in the NFL. Chris Godwin is outside the top-10 and didn’t even break the 90 rating, according to Madden.

While this certainly isn’t something worth losing sleep over, it still is frustrating to see some of the top players in the league continue to be underrated and disrespected. People simply don’t watch or keep up with the Buccaneers as they should because there’s really no reason why both Evans and Godwin shouldn’t be inside the top-10 with the argument that Evans could be top-five.

Here’s a look at a few of the notable ratings for the incoming Buccaneers rookies:

  • Antoine Winfield Jr: 75
  • Tristan Wirfs: 74
  • Ke’Shawn Vaughn: 69
  • Tyler Johnson: 68
  • Raymond Calias: 62
