Re: Madden 2010
The race for the next Madden cover is on.
EA Sports has quietly unveiled four of nine potential stars being considered for the cover of upcoming blockbuster Madden 10: Steeler's QB Ben Rothlesberger, Vikings extraordinaire Adrian Peterson, Ravens S Ed Reed and Giants RB Brandon Jacobs.
Who Will Be On The Next One?
But with five secret stars still in the mix, some sources are reporting that impressively coiffed players Larry Fitzgerald and Troy Polamalu might win it all and split the cover, potentially making Madden 10 the most indecisive game in the franchise.
Despite the distinct possibility of a Brady Bunch-like curse ruining a player's career, gracing the cover of Madden is still considered a serious honor. Past cover athletes have included Hall of Fame talents like Barry Sanders, Ray Lewis and Brett Favre (twice, sorta.) Any NFL player in their right mind would go ballistic at the chance of being the main man for EA's vaunted football game -- even if it means they're destined to bust a knee, or worse yet, share the honor with another player.
EA will announce the new cover boy(s) on April 24th at the NFL Draft, so you still have three weeks to start your betting pools.
