@ imuhboxer, ya i gotta agree with everyone else you're retarded. The reason Brees was picked is because he's amazing and i feel he deserved it over Reggie Wayne (which if your looking at it was the only black player out of the three). I am not a racist but out of the three players that the Madden team chose, Brees was the best.

I don't see why a coach couldn't be on the cover of madden. Coaches are just as important if not more than the players. MADDEN NFL 12 COVER: Mike Singletary

Still hate the camera angle they use on deep throws. 2k's blows it away. It also looked like Reggie Bush jogged all the way to the endzone on that last play. Not impressed. I like Brees but this game, like all the current gen Maddens, will suck. NCAA looks promising though.

Now thats the Fans vote on the Cover Boy... there will no longer be Black Athletes on the Cover. Even though majority of the league is African American.

I can't believe Tim Tebow got picked in the first round. Maybe the Bronco's really liked him.

"I owe about 95 percent of this to Coach Saban," McClain said. "I think without Coach Saban I wouldn't be the player that I am. I don't even know if I would have made it to this point. He made me a more honorable young man. He taught me everything as far as the game of football; taught me how to work. He just taught me everything I know." - Rolando McClain on being the 8th overall pick in the NFL Draft.
