April 27, 2011 by staff
2012 Madden Cover, Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis has the Philadelphia Eagles beat Michael Vick for the position of Madden 2012? S cover athlete. ESPN SportsNation revealed this news today. Hillis was chosen as part of a contest for fan voting which began on March 21, with a base of “March Madness” style of 32 athletes. Hillis, a graduate of the University of Arkansas, was seeded No. 10 in the vote and beat players like Matt Ryan Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers Rogers, Aaron.
Hillis victory comes after many considered him a loser (or underDawg good use of the Cleveland Browns terminology) to Vick, whom many consider an athlete earned a national reputation. If Vick had won, would have been the second time he appeared on the cover, which has been on the cover of Madden 2003. Vick is also notable for his felony conviction in 2007 for dog fighting, which raised questions of whether or not it was an acceptable candidate to fill the game. Indeed, the honor Hillis as the Madden 2012 cover athlete will be a blessing for the Browns and their fans, which continue to suffer what many consider to be the “Cleveland Browns curse.” It was the national championship team last time was during Jim Brown in 1964.
On the subject of the famous “Madden Curse”, ESPN sports writer Jay Crawford rooting Hillis explains his saying:
“That’s the beauty of it, everybody knows a double curse cancel all curses. Look up. Thus, in the vote for Peyton to grace the cover of Madden is also voting for the most tortured sports city ever out of his nasty fall. ”
As a born and raised Cleveland sports fan I can only hope that’s true. This particular version of Madden news also comes at a time when the NFL labor negotiations threaten to cancel the upcoming football season. Hopefully Madden 2012 is not the only NFL football, we enjoy this year.
