Madden NFL 20 completely botched Tennessee Titans safety Kevin Byard’s face.
It’s safe to say the video game Madden NFL 20 missed the mark when creating the character model for Tennessee Titans safety, Kevin Byard.
And that’s an understatement.
In side-by-side shots posted by @NickMojica89 on Twitter, he compared the faces of the real Byard to his video game likeness in Madden 20, and, well, it isn’t even close.
Who is that man on the right?! That certainly isn’t Byard!
I mean, did the artist draw this in the dark? Perhaps the computer screen was off when they finalized Byard’s face, because that couldn’t be more far off from the good-looking man that the Titans safety is.
First Madden 20 gives Byard an 89 rating when he should have been at least a 90, and now this.
It’s kind of hard to fathom how the game could get it so wrong. Byard is the best safety in the NFL, so you’d think the game would have done a bit more due diligence in creating his character.
Disrespect for the Titans and their players has gotten so bad that not even their virtual models are given sufficient effort. It just keeps getting worse and worse, doesn’t it?
Byard and the Titans agreed to a record-setting five-year, $70.5 million contract on Wednesday night. His average annual salary for the contract will be $14.1 million, which is slighty higher than the $14 million annual averages of Tyrann Mathieu and Landon Collins.
Maybe Byard can donate some of his new earnings to the game to fix that hot mess. He certainly deserves better than that.
But hey, we did get the real Mike Vrabel this year. Or, at least something close to it.
Let’s hope that the game can update faces like it does the ratings throughout the year. Otherwise, we’ll have to wait until Madden 21 for this abomination to be corrected.
You have to wonder what’s going on over there sometimes.
