NFL  > General NFL  > Peyton Hillis is on Cover of Madden!!
April 27, 2011, 09:41 PM
This is a simple shout out to a few Items. For those of you that have not seen this young man play the game SHAME ON YOU!! 110% effort, plays like he loves the game. Somewhere in your life you saw a player play with the intensity of Hillis and because of that player, you kept watching the NFL.
Those of you that want to say Madden Jinx.. dont believe it.... The fans stood proud against the Dog Fighter and asked for a real man to represent a game named after one of my favorite coaches, commentator, analyst, ect... And Madden would have selected Hillis to his All Madden Teams if he still did one.

Great pick, I just hope he does not get injured...lol

I like him, but he should not be on the cover. One 1000 yard season??

Being on the cover of Madden is a curse. Usually the player that appears there has a terrible season.

What did 2, 3, and 4 say and who posted them?

Drew Brees did pretty good this past year. Made the playoffs, 30 TD's, no injuries.

To be honest, I would have rather seen Aaron Rodgers than Vick or Hillis.

Cause he is a legend.

Honestly, I would have guessed that Jim Brown was more likely to make the Madden cover before Hillis

I think Hillis is more popular among Browns fans despite Brown being one of the greatest RB's in NFL history.

Because he had a very good season. And he won the Super Bowl. Very similar performance to last years cover, Drew Brees.

Hillis at draft: Praise the Lord Jesus.

On the curse: The curse usually hits players that had great years and went to the playoffs and/or Super Bowl. With back to back 5-11 seasons, I think the Browns and Hillis might just fly under the radar as far as the curse is concerned. Congrats to Hillis, Cleveland's newest fan favorite.
