Why Dorsey Levens get the cover after a 378 yard season with one touchdown? Started four games, played in seven. I don't get it. Did he have pictures of John Madden with Monica Lewinsky?

still not sure why you owning a console or not merits mention, unless you're trying to say you're better than those whom do? hey this just in, I don't own a truck!! Whistle

Green Bay had the best team overall rating in the game. They wanted the cover athlete to be an offensive starter from the best team. That narrowed it down to Brett Favre, Antonio Freeman and Dorsey Levens. For whatever reason they landed on Levens. Favre and Freeman may have turned down the offer, who knows? Anyway, that's my best guess why Levens was on there after a poor season.

Figured you'd vote for a Packers player. So, is it now that you wish for me to change your name from 'vikesrule' to 'packersrule'?

Calvin Johnson vs. Cam Newton for Madden cover


dammit! I wanted Aaron Rodgers on it ... imagine Aaron Rodgers with that chip on his shoulder to prove the curse wrong? Plus, I wanted to buy a copy of Madden with him on it. Maybe next year after another MVP season and Super Bowl MVP

As I said from the start of it all Cam Newton will be on it, he has the flare and personality to be on the cover. Sorry to say but people put Rodgers in the Brady and Manning class which means they lose popularity because they are hated by other teams fans.

Surely it couldn't have been a plethora of Packers fans voting for Calvin Johnson ... nah ... it has to be the notion that folks put Aaron Rodgers with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning and everyone hates them, thus, Aaron Rodgers received less votes.

As I said from the start of it all ...

I don't think Aaron Rodgers cares about losing out on the Madden cover all that much.

Best news I've heard all day.

Sorry Megatron. Enjoy watching you play, but love Aaron Rodgers more than you. Nothing personal.
