The Madden 12 cover has been released with Peyton Hillis on the front cover.
Whether you believe in the “Madden Curse” or not, the San Diego Chargers will not have to deal with any of that since Philip Rivers is not on the front cover.
Unfortunately, this may be the only football that we get to see this season, so when you get your copy of the game, just make a trade for Steve Smith and insert him into the offense and see how RIDICULOUS it would be to have him on our team. Also, make sure to bring on Kirk Morrison to play the middle linebacker spot and see Bob Sanders running around in the secondary!
At least Madden will keep things rolling with the football season despite the lockout.
