EA Sports has shown former Purdue quarterback David Blough the ultimate sign of disrespect, and because of it, he’s offering a challenge to all the video gamers out there.
Tuesday night, Blough posted an image of his player rating on the new video game “Madden NFL 20,” which happened to be pretty low. Extremely low, actually, as the game has the former Purdue starter with a 48 overall rating. While several players might get agitated with that kind of disrespect, Blough seems to have a pretty good sense of humor about it.
Blough has decided to offer a cash prize to anyone who can win the NFL Most Valuable Player award and Super Bowl on the game’s hardest level (All-Madden) with him at quarterback. That accomplishment will net some $250.
Here’s the tweet from Blough.
Seeing as 48 overall may be the lowest QB rating ever 🤦🏻♂️… I’ve got $250 for the first person who can win League MVP and the Super Bowl on @EAMaddenNFL All-Madden mode. With me, David Blough at QB… Good luck 😂 pic.twitter.com/xkk0C0G1xj

There are going to be plenty of gamers out there trying to accomplish this feat. It’ll be interesting to see if Blough has to cough up the dough.
Blough went unselected in the 2019 NFL Draft but signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Cleveland Browns. Because the franchise has Baker Mayfield running the show, Blough won’t challenge for the starting job, but he could carve out a spot on the depth chart in the coming weeks.
Last season, Blough finished the year with 3,705 passing yards (second-most in the B1G) and 25 touchdowns (third-most in the conference). He also completed 66 percent of his passes on the year.
You’d think with those kind of numbers, his rating would be a touch higher. Maybe EA Sports missed his games against Missouri, Ohio State and Indiana.
