It seems Brandon LaFell isn't too thrilled with his player rating.
The Pats receiver tweeted out his thoughts about being handed an 83 overall rating in the latest installment of Madden, which hit shelves across the nation yesterday:
For those that are often stumped by modern-day acronyms,' GTFOH' translates to, ahem, "Get the f*$% outta here."#Madden16 overall 83???? GTFOH— Jody Breeze (@Blafell1) August 26, 2015
After spending the first four years of his career in Carolina, LaFell signed in New England as a free agent and exceeded expectations in almost every way imaginable. It's well-documented how hard it is for new receivers to adjust to the system and more specifically to Tom Brady's cadence, timing and rhythm, yet LaFell was able to haul in 74 balls for 953 yards and seven touchdowns, all career highs. In the postseason, LaFell added 13 more passes for 119 yards and another pair of scores.
C'mon, that total body of work is worth more than an 83, right? Fight the man, Jojo!
For other players on offense, Tom Brady got a 97 rating, Julian Edelman an 89, LeGarrette Blount an 80 and Danny Amendola a 79. For tight end Rob Gronkowski, he was one of only three players, along with Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, to receive a 99-overall rating. Not a bad trio of players right there.
On defense, Devin McCourty got a very favorable 94, same for Dont'a Hightower (93), while Malcolm Butler landed a 76 overall rating.
