Glad Cam beat him out! PLus, you can always make your own covers. They have templates all over the internet.
That's not the same lol. History really doesn't lie, the last time a linebacker was on the cover it was Ray Lewis and he was perfectly f**king fine that year. Classless fans voting against their own player is depressing. Willis got hurt without being on the damn cover and there's a good chance this year is going to be a bounce back year for him. He wanted it and he deserves the recognition.
The problem with the "history" is people generally get on the cover for one statistically booming season. If you think of stats on a scale, it's kind of like a wave in variation of stats from year to year. So if you put a guy on the cover when he's had a healthy year and is peaking statistically, generally they fall the following year whether it's because of injury or whatever. A bunch of the "cursed" players are one-hit wonders- guys who peaked and then fell right out of the NFL, or mcnabb type of veterans who had one good run then fell apart, Willis does not fall in with these type of players.
