EA Sports and Madden troll the Seattle Seahawks on Twitter

EA Sports' Madden rating always seem to cause a stir each summer, when players and teams learn exactly how the NFL's stars stack up against each other. Earlier this month, we saw this year's rookie class express a bit of disappointment over their generally mediocre ratings. Now, there's another party displeased at the game's discretion.

On Twitter, the Seattle Seahawks took the time on Wednesday to air out their frustrations, getting the attention of the game's official handle. The gripe pertained to running back Marshawn Lynch's trucking rating, which determines how well a player can bowl over defenders while carrying the ball.

Lynch, of course, is widely heralded as the league's premier trucker.



Maybe the public forum wasn't the most effective way to bring up this difference of opinion. Because it backfired immediately.

Tweeting back at the Seahawks, Madden fit in a low blow, citing last season's Super Bowl loss, which Seattle lost on a last-second interception at the goal line. The team was criticized for not simply handing the ball to Lynch and letting him pound it in for the score. The nationwide chirping had settled down over the last few months, but after Joel McHale's burn at the ESPYS -- and now this -- the team isn't out of the woods just yet.



A message for head coach Pete Carroll as the new season is set to begin: When in doubt, just hand it off to Lynch.
