Re: Vince Young Madden 2008 Cover

It doesn't matter who's on the cover because that's not why people buy the game.
I'm sure they could slap a picture of Saddam tackling Richard Simmons and most of us would still go out and buy it ASAP.

I just hope Portis doesn't get put on the next cover after he scores 20 TDs this year.
Eddie George is considered to be the exception to the curse. He had a bigger year when he was on the cover vs. the year before.

Here's an article that outlines the Madden curse:

Why dont all the teams just put their RB with the best arm in the backfield, and tell him "if the guy aint open run!"

Here are his 06 stats

Number 26th passer overall Vince Young
Yards 2199
Attempts 357
Completions 184
Touchdowns 12
Interceptions 13
Longest 53
QB Rating 66.7 Thats right a freakin 66.7 QB rating which is 30th best in the league!, but this guy went to the Pro Bowl and now graces the Madden Cover. What in the hell were they thinking.
His true colors came out in a completely meaningless Pro Bowl game??

Who cares about the Pro Bowl?

Last time I checked the season is what matters, and he played pretty damn well when it mattered.

Thats right he is already better than T.O., Tim Brown, Randy Moss, and the Great one Jerry Rice. All hail Calvin Johnson!

Yeah right! Get th f*** outta here!
Actually, Peyton Manning was their first choice, but they couldn't fit his head onto the cover. Sigh.

Yeah, well Travis Henry will never be on the Madden cover.

Young never tripped or pulled a Romo trying to hand the ball to Henry, so we could've used some help from the "Curse" in that department!

Do you remember (I think it was) Naked Gun where he's looking a girl from down to up and it takes like one or two minutes of film to actually look all the way up her legs. That's how I feel when I look at his forehead.

Obviously you weren't paying attention. If scrambling with the ball because you suck as a passer is good QB play, Then Put CP at QB and let him do the same thing as Vince Young.

What do you mean it didn't matter? It didn't matter to you. It sure as hell mattered to those players who took the field to compete against each other. Otherwise why show up? Every player can claim all he wants to that "it was just for fun". I dont know anyone who has fun getting their ass whooped, exhibition or not! It sure as hell mattered to Sean Taylor when he laid out that punter.

P.S. Vince Young is still garbage!

Re: Vince Young Madden 2008 Cover

You're really comparing the Pro Bowl to an actual game? They're all just having fun out there. Even Sean Taylor. Lucky for us, his idea of fun is leveling opponents.

Vince Young has a ways to go, but he's not garbage. And it's the freaking cover of a video game! Is it really worth getting all worked up over?
