Calvin Johnson wins the cover of Madden 13 [SideQuesting]

Dali Dimovski of writes: "There really is no such thing as a Madden Curse. As rough as the NFL is, it’s actually uncommon to go two injury-free seasons in a row.

Calvin Johnson will be the latest to find out why. The star Wide Receiver for the Detroit Lions, known to teammates and rivals as Megatron for making opponents just look silly, won EA’s fan vote for the cover of the game over the course of several weeks of voting, besting Cam Newton in the final. (Madden 13, PS3, Xbox 360)

What's sad is the Lions just paid him an insane ammount of $$$. I believe he is the highest paid (or top 3) player in the league.

Not to mention that Stafford had insane numbers last year, too. It'll be tough to repeat for either of the Lions' stars.

Cam Newton should have been on the cover.

forget who is on the cover. how about ea or whoever developing madden fix the dame engine. so we can have realistic gameplay.

If you want realistic gameplay, you'll have to pray that 2K will one day get the NFL license. There is no way EA would stray away from what is selling millions of copies.

That guy is a monster receiver and a really cool guy.
Well deserved. I just hope, for once, the player on the cover doesn't get hurt. Detroit needs him desperately.
