Browns Back Peyton Hills To Grace Madden 12 Cover
This is just plain weird.
There are a whole lot of NFL stars that have household names, and any one of them could have ended up on the cover of Madden NFL 12. EA ran a tournament where fans voted on the athlete they wanted to see grace the cover of this year's Madden, and the winner is...Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis. You know, in looking at the initial field, we would've figured Hillis would be a long-shot, but after five weeks and almost 13 million votes, the Browns back won in a landslide. He beat out Philadelphia's Michael Vick in the final showdown by a count of 66% to 34%. Now, not to take anything away from Hillis, but we have a theory- with all the bad luck cover athletes have suffered in past years, fans of their favorite teams and players were petrified of voting for their man.
That's just a theory, mind you. But hey, it's a nice surprise, isn't it?
