Michael Vick, Peyton Hillis to Compete for Madden NFL 12 Cover

I don’t even know who Peyton Hillis is but I know I don’t want anything good to happen to Michael Vick… Other than the fact that whoever generally appears on the cover of Madden is cursed the following year… Call me judgmental, since I don’t know anything about him personally, but  he has tortured dogs and that makes me sick. ESPN Sports Nation has been running a 32-player tournament style contest in which fans vote on who gets to be the cover player for the ‘Madden NFL 12′ video game, and controversial quarterback Michael Vick has reached the finals.

Perhaps more surprisingly is that he will be facing off against Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis. Hillis did enjoy a breakout season in 2011, but is hardly a household name. Still, he still defeated Green Bay Packers quarterback and Super Bowl champion Aaron Rodgers 61 to 39 percent in the semifinals.

Final round voting runs through Mon, Apr. 25; and, remember, there is evidence to suggest whichever player appears on the cover of Madden’s is “cursed ” for the next season, so you can take that into consideration when you vote.
