Are you ready for some football? How about a long and drawn out fan vote to decide who will appear on the cover of Madden NFL 13? Well, EA Sports has you covered on both.
Starting today, the Madden-maker will reveal each division’s nominees for the game’s cover. The 64-player tournament will initially include two players from each team. Beginning March 7, fans can head over to the ESPN SportsNation Facebook Page to decide who will represent each team in the final 32-player bracket.
Today’s nominees come from the AFC West:
Von Miller or Tim Tebow
Kansas City Chiefs
Dwayne Bowe or Derrick Johnson
Sebastian Janikowski or Shane Lechler
San Diego Chargers
Antonio Gates or Phillip Rivers
Out of these eight players, I’d say only Tebow is a lock for the final bracket. And what is Sebastian Janikowski… a kicker… even doing in this vote? Don’t get me wrong, kickers are awesome, but you’ll never see one on the cover of a Madden game. And Lechler’s inclusion is just, I don’t want to say joke, but come on now…
