Madden ‘12 Cover: Patrick Willis vs. The 12th Man

Mar 21, 2011 at 1:55 PM


This year's Madden video game cover will be determined by the fans. ESPN.com has a bracket up (who doesn't love brackets?) and are letting fans vote for the next Madden cover representative in a March Madness style system.

The San Francisco 49ers' player is none other than linebacker Patrick Willis. He is facing off against ... wait for it ... Seattle Seahawks representative, The 12th Man.

When you are done laughing, you may want to head over to ESPN and vote for Patrick Willis. While it is doubtful that he will win the whole tournament, and I am sure fans do not want the Madden curse to hit the NFL's best middle linebacker and 49ers fan favorite, you have to head over to vote for him so he does not get knocked out by The 12th Man.

The Seahawks are the only team that do not have an actual player representing them in this contest. They might just as well have put in Blitz, the team mascot.

The "Madden curse" may be overblown. Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports recently examined the history of the video game covers and assessed whether the curse has any validity. He concluded that 58% of the previous cover athletes experienced misfortune during the season following their selection. However, over the past 10 years, that percentage has dropped to 25%. According to Benjamin, the last year a player was cursed was in 2018 when Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was on the game's cover. The following year, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was the cover athlete and went on to win his
