It has become common practice to let the fans decide the cover athlete for the new Madden . But this year, it's all sorts of interesting for one reason…
That's because we're celebrating the 25th anniversary of the legendary franchise (and I still can't believe it has been that long), and the voting is "New School vs. Old School." The final round pits Detroit Lions record-breaking – and ankle-breaking – running back Barry Sanders against current Minnesota Viking superstar running back, Adrian Peterson.
Cast your vote now and let your voice be heard. Sanders just squeaked past another Hall of Famer, San Francisco 49ers receiver Jerry Rice, to get to the final round. Peterson had an easier run, earning 64% of the votes in the semifinals against fellow RB Arian Foster. So now the epic showdown is set and it's time to determine the winner. I'm sorta hoping Sanders wins because he was always a beast in the old Madden games, and it'd be nice to celebrate 25 years with him on the cover.
But one could make a pretty solid argument for Peterson, too. And of course, being a 49ers fan, I say it should've been either Rice or Montana (greatest tandem ever ), but oh well.
