Tebow or Newton. either way the curse is real and one of them will fall to it. If Tebow does BearBaron will be having a party, if Newton does then most of the people who thought he would bust will be correct.

Gregg Williams.

And in my player mode on defense you get adjectives to injury players, and with that money buy rating points (like xp for ncaa)

On offense, Skill- dont get injured OL- make sure your qb doesnt get injured.

Too NFL Blitz?

I can tell you this, EA isn't going to let the public vote again, haha. The underestimated the power of the internet.

Newton would make a TON of sense. I think they'll avoid Tebow because his situation is so tenuous. Last thing they want is another Favre situation where the player gets traded after all of the games are shipped. I think it's pretty clear that through their interest in Peyton Manning, even if they don't get him, they'll be looking for another starting caliber QB somewhere this offseason.

If they want to take the pulse of the league, putting a TE like Gronk or Graham on there might be wise. Unlikely though since the TE position isn't exactly flashy, and they'll probably try to avoid the Saints given their stigma.

Or they could just put Rodgers on. I think he is who they would have preferred last year (or really anyone BUT Hillis,) so they could make it up this year.

I don't think there is a clear cut favorite right now to be honest. Newton would make a ton of sense to me though.

Apparently they are letting the fans vote on it again, the vote started yesterday on Sportsnations facebook page...which means Tebow is all but assured his spot on the cover.

I stopped enjoying the Madden games once they added that vision cone thing. It was clunky and poorly done.

I stopped playing "GM Mode" as I called it, where I would just build teams and simulate games, once they stopped making it for PC, which was like 08.

And haha, another vote....those guys just don't learn, do they?

The ONLY way Tebow doesn't end up on the cover is if Peyton Manning somehow ends up in Denver.

And that won't happen because Tebow has the same agent as Peyton Manning.

QB vision was awesome. Except Peyton's cone covered the entire field.

I was on PC and it was the stupidest thing ever. Before that, you already had to aim with the mouse. When you were over the receiver you wanted, he would turn red and you would click.

When the passing cone came out, you had to control the cone with the mouse and then hit the most random ******* buttons possible on the keyboard to actually throw it, which meant taking your fingers OFF the keys to move your QB. Unless you had extra fingers, you could not throw on the run very easily.

It was stupid and I never played another game of Madden again, just simming them while team building.

That part is already assured. I don't think the fans will EVER turn on him. He could post a 0.00 QB rating for 4 straight games while completing no passes but he's still TEBOWZZZZ to them.

Is this even a big deal any more? I feel like Madden hit it's peak a few years ago but I could just be getting old.

It is a very big deal, in that I have Newton and Gronkowski as huge value keepers in my highest dollar fantasy $$$ league. Please don't let it be either of them!!

In my eyes, its more of a challenge to the Madden Curse. How can we make a physical specimen like Gabbert look afraid in the pocket, incapable of understanding a pro offense and create the illusion of a poor supporting cast....oh wait. Seriously he would have to morph into Tebow without the ability to work hard, run the ball and lead a team.....oh wait. I would buy the pay per view of Gabbert vs Madden Curse.

It's going to be Tebow with or without a vote - that'd be the only reason they'd even let us vote again, it's inevitable he would win.

Hopefully it gets sabotaged again though, a K/P or some random player like Hillis would be great. Maybe Hillis in street clothes.

Gabbert in that infamous 'ducking in the pocket under zero pressure' picture (someone please post) against the Ravens(?) would be perfect.

As far as the annual 'where did Madden go wrong' discussion, it was definitely going into next-gen. I loved the vision cone on PS2, that was a step in the right direction and would greatly improve the game as it is today. Where a QB is looking can greatly manipulate a defense and influence different things on offense, it's just realistic. They never really knew what to do with the right stick as the QB otherwise, now it's like "avoid a hit" or something else that's sparingly used, at least as far as I'm concerned.

The worst part of the game is the WR/DB interactions. It's almost as if sometimes your QB throws it where ONLY the DB can get it, instead of the other way around like it should be. You try to go up with the WR and he just does some weak alligator-arm thing without even leaving the ground, as the DB EXPLODES into the air and a magnetic force sucks the ball to his hands. Really annoying throwing one-on-one jump balls to Calvin Johnson against a 5'10 corner and having him oblivious to what's going on while the corner spins around and rockets into the air for an explosive interception, just because it's on All-Madden. Then when I'm the corner, if/when I am able to do the same over their receivers it's just never an INT.

I can go on and on about Madden, but it's really just that on All-Madden you can't play a realistic professional football game, you have to almost try and glitch the CPU in some way on every play. You can change routes and motion on offense and their defense will magically change to mirror the exact change you made, if you absolutely KNOW you'll have at least one guy open somewhere you just won't be given enough time to throw to him. It's funny how many times the pass-rush arrives at the EXACT second you can make a safe throw, whether it's 2 seconds or 5 seconds after the snap. Your blockers won't block pass-rushers when they don't want to, while your front 7 on defense gets sucked to blockers hat-to-hat without a problem on virtually any play - one of the only ways to create pressure in the game, still, is by swooping around the line with a DB with precise timing.


I can go on and on about Madden all day... And yes, I'll still buy ..... :(


EDIT: Does anyone remember maddenwishlist.com? It was around during like 04-06and got closed down eventually for reasons I'm not sure of, but I'm almost positive it was a legit website to submit suggestions. I actually suggested 'defensive hot routes' on that site, where you can change what an individual defender's assignment is on a given play, and it was in the game the next year, so that's my claim to fame when it comes to Madden

^^^^^^^^^ I hate Madden so much I just don't play an up-to-date NFL game. NCAA football has far more realistic gameplay, and if I was going to play NFL football, I'd break out the original xbox and ESPN 2k5. Madden still doesn't have as good of physics or animation as that game.

It has to be Sea Bass. The idea of a kicker on the cover is just way too funny.

You guys are all forgetting the favorite... Victor Cruz. I'm put 100 bucks that he wins it. He has a walk to the final, and his hype is exactly the kind that gets someone on the Madden Cover. I bet Eli/Rodgers/Tebow would turn it down anyway, and Cruz would love it. He needs to make his money while he can because who knows if he'll go back to being a scrub.

Why, because he plays for a division rival? Cruz has been a baller for awhile now, he might still make a bone headed play but he's long been a play-maker. Considering he didn't even get consistent snaps until maybe the mid way point I'd venture to say he hasn't posted career high numbers.


I was kinda hoping Gabbert could get the cover still though, would fit perfectly with the state of where Madden is right now.

I think the troll factor can't be ignored that is why I think Seabass will win the whole thing.

That actually has nothing to do with it at all. I have nothing against Victor Cruz and in fact I like his story coming from a small school and not the best upbringing.

I just want to see the guy do it again when the NFL knows about him before I crown him this all pro receiver. I will admit Giants fans acting like he is the next Jerry Rice is kind of annoying. We'll see what he does next year.

He may have said No. Tom Brady does every year.

Yeah, actually he won the whole thing. Congrats to Calvin Johnson, coverboy for Madden '13!
