Your Nine Madden 2010 Cover Finalists Are?

Wednesday, April 22, 2009


Madden Day is still one of my favorite times of the year, even though I'm thirty years-old (shh...don't tell anyone). The suspense leading up to it is pretty fun as well, and this year EA has decided to release the nine finalists competing for the right to get injured next season....er, get the cover. Here's who they're deciding between. From SBD via EA Sports....

EA Sports has announced the nine finalists to appear on the cover of the "Madden NFL 10" videogame, with the cover athlete to be announced Friday. The finalists are Steelers S Troy Polamalu, Colts QB Peyton Manning, Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald, Chiefs QB Matt Cassel, Cowboys LB DeMarcus Ware, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, Giants RB Brandon Jacobs, Vikings RB Adrian Peterson and Ravens S Ed Reed
Matt Cassell?!?! Seriously??? Ummm....okay....sure. Other than that, the rest of the candidates seem worthy enough. It would be cool to see someone like Polamalu or Reed get it, because I think the last defensive player on the cover was Ray Lewis. The cover athlete for Madden '10 will be announced on Friday.

Come on you know why Cassel is a finalist? He played for the Pats and well it is the New England Football League after all, what you didn't know, i mean my God the Pats missed the playoffs we must change the system.

Purple Jesus might have something to say about that trifecta.

No matter, I wouldn't mind seeing any of those four plagued by minor nagging injuries all season long.

Madden should just put himself on the cover this year as a tribute to himself.

It's going to be L Fitz. I don't think anybody else has a chance.

Folks in New England are probably voting for Manning. Take a guess why.

I'm with you on that, I'm the same age and I'm at Gamestop at midnight to pick up the game. I think Fitzgerald should be on the cover!!!

I could do without Peterson being on the cover. He's all we have, we don't need a curse.

I thought I read something about Fitzy and Polamalu being on the cover together. I think that would be pretty cool.

Word out of MN is that Peterson withdrew his name from the running and didn't want to be on the cover...
