EA Sports released the player ratings for Madden NFL 21 earlier this week. Four players have the coveted “99 overall” rating for 2021.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey is one of those four players. That’s no surprise considering how dominant McCaffrey was in 2019.
McCaffrey has a “99 overall” rating for the second straight season, though last year, he didn’t get it until late in the season.
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle had a brutally honest reaction to McCaffrey’s rating. He thinks the Panthers running back should be a “100 overall.”
“Dude should be 100 based on his bicep size alone,” said Kittle, who received a “98 overall” rating for the 2021 edition of the popular game.

McCaffrey is certainly one of the most-jacked players in the NFL. He hasn’t shied away from showing it off this offseason, either. McCaffrey has been spending a lot of time with his supermodel girlfriend, Olivia Culpo.
It’s been a good offseason for the power couple.
McCaffrey signed a record-breaking contract extension and landed a “99 overall” rating in Madden 21. Culpo, meanwhile, just landed the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

WOW! I really am speechless and this still doesn’t feel real. I am so grateful for every experience I have been able to have with my @si_swimsuit family. Thank you so much @mj_day – your warmth and genuinity is unparalleled and I have learned and grown so much. It’s been an honor to be surrounded by so many amazing and strong women. The second swipe here is a vision board I made about 4 years ago before I had ever even shot for sports illustrated. I cut out pictures from a huge SI coffee table book I bought and glued my face on it 😂 I was debating sharing this but figured if this huge milestone can mean something to someone else out there then it’s an even greater blessing for me. To anyone who sees this, never stop visualizing and striving for what you want. Don’t lose hope and remain focused and persistent. 4 years ago when I was pasting these images onto a poster board it was me sitting on the floor with my glue stick and scissors shooting for the stars and it felt completely unattainable. I just hope this can show anyone out there that their goals, big or small, really can come true and that you deserve it. Thank you to everyone who has helped me achieve this dream and to all the other dreamers, never give up ❤️🌟 I love you guys!!!
The Panthers, meanwhile, are scheduled to open the 2020 season on Sunday, Sept. 13 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
