The man who knocked Jamaal Charles out of the Madden 12 Cover Vote race has moved on to the finals.
Maybe it was meant to be.
Peyton Hillis pulled off a shocking upset over Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers, defeating him 61%-39%. The Browns RB will take on former Madden 12 cover athlete Mike Vick, who defeated Adrian Peterson 59%-41%.
It stinks he knocked off Charles and I think Jamaal is the better back but I am rooting for Hillis all the way now. I thought Rodgers deserved to be on the cover but I have to hand it to Browns Nation, they have shown up in a big way for Hillis.
The city of Cleveland has had a rough go of it for a while now. They’ve had major heartbreak with all of their pro teams over the years, with the most recent humiliation being LeBron James’ classless dumping of the city on national television.
I grew up just outside of Cleveland the folks over there love their Browns and they’ve been seeking for someone to root for. Looks to me like Hillis is that guy. I think it’s a great story so I’m on team Hillis.
Who do you guys think should be on the cover? Vote here.
