Madden NFL 25 Cover Vote begins with Jerry Rice vs. Chris Carter
The Madden NFL 25 Cover Vote officially begins next Monday (March 11), but EA Sports and ESPN’s SportsNation launched the vote-by-Twitter play-in round today. The first matchup is Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice versus newly-minted Hall of Fame wide receiver Chris Carter. You can make your selection by tweeting a message of support to Rice (with the hashtag #Madden25Rice) or Carter (with the hashtag #Madden25Carter) now:

This year’s Madden Cover Vote will include 32 current players versus 32 all-time greats with one of each facing off in the final round. While no one’s seen the final bracket yet, I have to ask, how was Jerry Rice not an automatic pick? The man wasn’t just a great wide receiver, he was the greatest wide receiver.
Of course, Carter is an ESPN analyst (and one of Chris Berman’s favorite players), so I suppose that explains Carter’s challenge of Mr. 80.
