He could have a year like when George had the cover. He had his best year statistically, his career year.

I was waiting for this.

Hillis is nice but the cover

Come on now half the nfl causal market who happen to buy this game don't know who he is. A lot of people see madden like ohhhhhhhhh shiny graphics and then they look at the cover followed by cha-ching, they gonna be thinking who the fu*k is this n*gga and might not buy(it sounds crazy but hey look who buys madden)

Plus he's on the browns
Madden must really be a.ss now if people won't buy it because of the cover.

Vick doesn't need a curse to get hurt. He's played all 16 once in his career. That being said I'm drafting dude too. He won he the whole thing last year.

This is why the whole thing just feels staged. I mean dude is a beast, but come on Hillis over Vick and A Rod? Come on now. At least Cleveland wins something.

you do know you have the years mixed up right? 2001 came out in 2000 bruh just like 2012 comes out in 2011.

EDDIE GEORGE: Madden 2001
THE MYTH: A costly fumble in the playoffs in 2000, the year he was on the cover, lost the Titans the game. But curse advocates mainly point to his 2001 season, the year after he appeared on the cover, when a niggling toe injury contributed to career-lows in yards rushing (939 yards) and yards per carry (3).

THE REALITY: Uh, you can't pick and choose which year a player sucks. It's got to be the year they appear on the cover. And in 2000, George posted career highs in rushing yards (1509) and rushing TDs (14). As a result, he made the AFC Pro Bowl team and was also named an All-Pro.

Recount this:

In what has to be one of the biggest surprises in "Madden" cover history, Peyton Hillis defeated Michael Vick in the finals of the "Madden NFL 12" cover vote by an eye-popping 65.6-34.4 percent margin and is now poised to pose for the cover shot Thursday morning in New York.

I can keep going

GARRISON HEARST - Madden 99
THE MYTH: The 49ers' RB Garrison Hearst was the first player to appear on the cover. He proceeded to break his ankle in the playoffs, and broke it so bad he wouldn't play again until the 2001 season.

THE REALITY: Good luck finding a copy of Madden 99 with Hearst on the cover. The vast majority still had John Madden himself, alone, on the front. And yeah, it was a bad break, but he also rushed for 1570 yards (2105 total yards) for the year, and was named to both the NFC Pro Bowl and All-Pro teams.

BARRY SANDERS - Madden 2000
THE MYTH: On the verge of breaking Walter Payton's all-time rushing record, out of nowhere Sanders retires from the NFL.

THE REALITY: For starters, he's not the cover star. Madden is. Sanders only appears in a small background shot behind the game's logo. Secondly, while his announcement came just before the season in which he appeared on the cover, Sanders would later admit that it was the Detroit Lion's propensity for continual suckage that caused him to call it quits, something which had been building up long before he appeared on the cover.

DORSEY LEVENS - Madden 2000 (PAL Territories)
THE MYTH: There is none. Levens had a great year.

THE REALITY: Like I said, Levens had a great year. 1999 was the second-best year of his eleven-year career, and he not only rushed for 1034 yards (second-best season), he caught 71 passes for 573 yards, both career highs.

EDDIE GEORGE: Madden 2001
THE MYTH: A costly fumble in the playoffs in 2000, the year he was on the cover, lost the Titans the game. But curse advocates mainly point to his 2001 season, the year after he appeared on the cover, when a niggling toe injury contributed to career-lows in yards rushing (939 yards) and yards per carry (3).

THE REALITY: Uh, you can't pick and choose which year a player sucks. It's got to be the year they appear on the cover. And in 2000, George posted career highs in rushing yards (1509) and rushing TDs (14). As a result, he made the AFC Pro Bowl team and was also named an All-Pro.

DAUNTE CULPEPPER: Madden 2002
THE MYTH: Had a fantastic 2000 season, throwing for nearly 4000 yards. In 2001, however, a back injury meant he only appeared in eleven games, and even taking this into account his productivity dropped off.

THE REALITY: All that's true. For what it's worth, he threw for over 3400 yards in each of his next three seasons.

MARSHALL FAULK - Madden 2003
THE MYTH: A versatile back, Faulk amassed 2147 combined yards (both rushing and receiving) in the 2001 season. In 2002, however, this dropped off substantially. The St Louis Rams, after going 14-2 and appearing in the Super Bowl, crashed to 7-9.

THE REALITY: The Rams of 2002 were decimated by injuries, not only to Faulk's QB Kurt Warner but key linemen Orlando Pace and Tom Nutten as well. Those three injuries would impact the production of any RB, especially one as reliant on receiving yards as Faulk. Regardless, at 29 (approaching old age for a RB) he still amassed 1490 combined yards.

MICHAEL VICK - Madden 2004
THE MYTH: The league's brightest star coming into the 2003 season, Michael Vick broke his leg in a preseason game. The week after appearing on the cover. His career, once promising, has never been the same since.

THE REALITY: That is the reality. Vick had a bad 2003, and things only got worse.

RAY LEWIS - Madden 2005
THE MYTH: The Ravens, division champions the previous year, failed to make the playoffs. He also missed the last two games of the year due to injury. Oh, and after tallying six interceptions in 2003, didn't get a single one in 2004.

THE REALITY: That's statistical cherry-picking at its best. The facts are, Ray Lewis - the first defensive player to appear on the cover - enjoyed one of his best seasons ever, and was named to both the AFC Pro Bowl team and a first-team All-Pro.

DONOVAN McNABB - Madden 2006
THE MYTH: McNabb, who led the Eagles to the Super Bowl in 2004, played hurt for a lot of the 2005 season. His stats were down, and the Eagles finished 6-10.

THE REALITY: He did hurt himself, and missed the last five games of the season when he finally decided to have surgery. He still cobbled together 2507 passing yards at an average of 278 yards per game, though, and earned a respectable QB rating of 85.

SHAUN ALEXANDER - Madden 2007
THE MYTH: Had one of the best years ever for a running back in 2005, rushing for 1880 yards and setting an NFL record for TDs with 28. But in 2006, he broke his foot, missed six games then saw his TD record broken by the Chargers' LaDainian Tomlinson.

THE REALITY: No hiding it, it was a bad year for Alexander. He rushed for nearly 1000 yards less than his 2005 season, and hasn't been the same player since.

VINCE YOUNG - Madden 2008
THE MYTH: Having never missed a game in his life, he missed one during the 2007 regular season.

THE REALITY: So what? Young continued his NFL apprenticeship, increasing his yardage, completion rate and QB rating while leading the Titans to the NFL playoffs for the first time since 2003.


BRETT FAVRE - Madden 2009
THE MYTH: Favre retires a Packer, lands on the cover, then returns as a Jet. This would be bad karma for the future Hall-of-Famer.

THE REALITY: Favre's retirement charade dated all the way back to 2005, and has been a constant of the NFL off-season since, meaning his cover appearance has nothing to do with it. He didn't have a bad 2008 season, either; injuries marred it towards the end, but he still managed to throw for 3400 yards with a QB rating of 81; not amazing numbers, but hardly a "curse", either.

TROY POLAMALU & LARRY FITZGERALD - Madden 10
THE MYTH: Polamalu & Fitzgerald, the stars of the previous season's Super Bowl, enjoyed mixed fortunes as the first co-stars on a Madden cover since 2000. While Fitzgerald had another great year, Polamalu's season was wrecked by not one injuries, but two.

THE REALITY: Yup, mixed fortunes. Fitzgerald started all 16 games for the Cardinals in 2009, catching 97 passes for 1092 yards. Great numbers. So great he was made an All-Pro for the second year running. Polamalu, however, sprained ligaments in his knee in the first game of the season, then after a spell on the sidelines re-injured himself in week 10, meaning he only played in five of the Steeler's 16 games. One injury is unfortunate, two in a season is definitely curse-like behaviour.

DREW BREES - Madden 11
THE MYTH: That not only will Drew Brees suffer great misfortune as the game's cover star, but that since the city of New Orleans itself also features, it's in line for some bad times as well.

THE REALITY: Let's check back next year! Though it's hard trying to imagine any more bad luck heading New Orleans' way so soon after Katrina.
