Breece Hall roasted for scoring in ‘Madden’ but not ‘in real life’

Breece Hall was criticized in one of the most unexpected ways possible.

The second-year Jets running back shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, that a PlayStation user went after him for not scoring touchdowns “in real life.”

“Maybe the jets would win more if you could score a td in real life not madden,” the user wrote. “Gg ez pal.”

Hall seemed taken aback by the bold message that referenced the long-running NFL video game and wrote in his X post’s caption: “Y’all texting me off PS5 now?” with two crying laughing emojis.

The Jets, now 1-3 after a heartbreaking 23-20 loss to the Chiefs on “Sunday Night Football” in front of Taylor Swift, have recorded just one rushing touchdown this season — from fullback Nick Bawden in Week 3’s loss to the Patriots.

Hall is coming off an ACL injury but has not looked any worse for the wear, picking up 210 yards over four games, leading the team.

He has cracked off three 20-plus-yard runs, including a 43-yard pickup against Kansas City and an 83-yard scamper on opening night, but has yet to score a touchdown this season.

On a snap count after the knee injury, Hall got just four touches in a Week 2 defeat to the Cowboys and appeared to take his frustrations out on social media.

In a since-deleted X post, Hall sent out four football emojis, equaling the number of touches he got in the loss.

“I only got four touches. That’s why we struggled,” Hall also told reporters after the game. “But it is what it is.

“I think we just got down early today and kind of just abandoned the run. I feel like, with any team, that kind of stuff happens. That’s just how it is; you feel like you have to get back in the game. It just slips away.”

He last scored against the Broncos, whom the Jets take on in Week 5.
