Troy Polamalu and Larry Fitz. will, for the first time ever in the 21 year history, BOTH grace the cover of Madden NFL 2010.

Initial reaction?

SON OF AAAAAAAA ...

He better not get hurt.

Afterthought?

Pretty sweet that we get to see taz looking like a deamon on the cover of MADDEN ... seriously ... MADDEN!!!!! biggity bang

DAMMIT!!! I wish it woulda been Fitz by himself. I'm a firm believer in this curse, so this is not good news.

Take care of yourself Troy.

Troy's secret ninja training trumps the Madden Curse.

Plus Madden retired, so the bad mojo is a moot point now...

What's great, is I have the Fitz Cover from 2005 College game, because I'm a PITT fan, I keep it on my Sports Shelf. Now I'll have to Buy this, Former Pitt guy and a Steeler on the Same Cover!

Yeah, there is a curse, but maybe the 2 guy Cover will undo the curse. We'll See.

If both of these guys have "down" years, then they need to just Discontinue making the game.

I just hope they fixed the problem where the sack animation starts a good half-second to a second before it ought to. It basically makes it impossible to get rid of the ball when you're under any pressure at all.

I'm sure anyone who has played this game has experienced the frustration of trying to throw a short dump-off to an uncovered back or receiver, only to take a sack from a defensive end who was a good five or six yards away as you were mashing the button trying to get the pass off. It seems to happen several times a game.

Let's just put Tom Brady on the cover every year.

Also, I like the idea of having two players on the cover. Means we get a guy on the cover AND an escape route from the curse. Since the curse can continue even if only one guy gets injured or has a bad year. Let's just hope it's the right one.

maybe rev is onto something..

there are 2 new things bout this new game...

first time that there are 2 players on the cover and john madden is not working in football at this point..

maybe that was the curse til he left

Wish Troy woulda turned it down, but that's a sweet lookin' cover...I'll give it that.

The real question is...are they coming out with a PC version, and is it just another converted PS2 castoff. :banging:

hmm....this might make me buy the game

if only they improved the game itself and not just the graphics and cover. anyway, mine's way too old and I need an upgrade

Troy WILL beat the curse

Supposedly they have.

This will be the year the curse is broken. I was dreading the year that a Steelers player would be put on the cover, but this cover is awesome! Troy Polamalu for obvious reasons and Fitz is a player I have a lot of respect for. Can't wait to add this one to my collection. :tt02:

As much as it looked so awesome, I still don't like 1 of our guys on the cover of a Madden. But since we're there, I guess I'll B buying it whether I have much time 2 play or not.

Let's just put Tom Brady on the cover every year.

I personally wasn't going to buy Madden this year because after 15 years the game has plateau for me, but Polamalu on the cover changes that. Is anyone else stocked about the August release.:tt02::helmet::tt:

I probably will fork over the $50 just for the cover, not the game
