Madden Cover Athlete to Be Chosen by Fans: Everyone Vote Peyton Hillis

Andy BaileyFeatured ColumnistMarch 21, 2011

This year, EA Sports is putting a big decision in the hands of NFL fans. 

Voting has commenced on who will be this year's Madden cover athlete, and we need to do all we can to secure this honor for Peyton Hillis.

The vote is being conducted through ESPN's popular fan voice show, SportsNation. Each NFL team is represented in the 32-player bracket, and the NFL's Chuck Norris is a 10 seed.

While he may be a long shot to win the whole thing, Cleveland fans (and anyone who loves Hillis) need to not only vote for the league's hardest-hitting runner, but tell everyone they know to vote as well.

Hillis was sixth in the league in yards from scrimmage with 1,654 and third in total touchdowns with 13. He was extremely productive in one of the most lackluster offenses in the league.

Plus, if anyone has the power to officially bust the "Madden Curse," it's Peyton Hillis.

Everyone vote for Peyton Hillis right HERE.
