Everybody should see this coming; lost his starting LG, tops in the league, and already got his huge contract AND coming off of a Superbowl loss. Seattle shouldn't allow him to do it, they won't have a chance next year...

I think that its a good pick for the cover. I just cant wait to play with all the new trades and the draft picks that will be taken should make this one the best year yet.

They are supposed to be significantly revamping the engine at some near future point. I am hoping this year. Madden is still a great game but I have been tiring of the incremental improvements and new rosters as being the reason for dropping 50 on a new game. Of course, I do it any way ... but there is so much they can and need to do to the mechanics of the gameplay. Overdue, IMO, and I hope they will follow up on this "redesign" this year.

What a waste of a cover.

I would like to see a Cornerback on the cover. But I guess this year, they will introduce another running back move, like the "truck stick", or the "hit stick" for Ray Lewis.

For football, yes. Steve Francis did it for basketball.
