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

That's all that needs to be said.

Cam Newton should have been on the cover.

cedaridge2187d ago

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.
