Fans Choose Next Recipient of Madden Curse: The EA Sports fan vote to choose the NFL athlete on the cover of the videogame Madden '12 has come down to an unlikely final: Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick vs. Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis, a seventh round draft pick of the Denver Broncos in 2007 who ran for 1,177 yards and scored 13 touchdowns last season.

I have been voting for Vick all along. Just to see heads explode if he actually wins.

This is a hard choice for me. I have been a fan of Hillis since I picked him up in my fantasy league a few years ago when he was the 5th Broncos starting RB of the season and had a good game and a half for me before getting hurt. As a fan of the player I don't want him getting the curse. On the other hand I am an Eagles fan so I don't want the Eagles starting QB to be saddled with the curse either.

Damn it, can we order a recount and get it to be Rothlisberger against Danny Woodhead? We would still have the evil QB vs out of no where white RB scenario and if Ben breaks a leg or the Pats have something evil bestow them I wouldn't be heart broken.

It should be this cover. A pox on both of their houses if the season is cancelled...

Given what tends to happen to Madden cover stars, GO VICK, you animal cruelty loving piece of excrement.

Ah, to live in a world where people lack the capacity to learn. You're really saying nothing about Michael Vick.
