    Young to grace cover of Madden '08
    By Terry McCormick, tmccormick@nashvillecitypaper.com
    April 16, 2007

    Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young will be on the cover of the EA Sports Madden 2008 video game.

    A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed Young’s gracing the cover of the game to The City Paper. Efforts to reach EA Sports were unsuccessful on Monday.

    An official announcement is expected on Tuesday and Young will appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" as part of the kickoff promotion for the newest version the popular NFL video game that is endorsed by NFL Hall of Fame coach and analyst John Madden.

    Of course, appearing on the cover of the game has produced a “jinx” of sorts in recent seasons.

    Several players, including former Titan Eddie George, have graced the cover, then succumbed to injury or ineffectiveness in the season they were on the game’s front.

    George was on the cover during the 2001 season, the year he suffered through a toe injury. In 2000, George had rushed for a career-high 1,509 yards. Because of the injury, George managed just 939 yards in 2001 as the Titans slumped from 13-3 to 7-9.

    Other prominent players to fall victim to the Madden Curse include quarterbacks Donovan McNabb and Daunte Culpepper and last year’s cover man Shaun Alexander.
    Young apparently will also appear in commercial spots for the game that will be aired during coverage of the NFL Draft.

    this is an outrage, we all know that LT is the best player in the NFL and should be on the cover :icon_evil:

    once again it's the east coast bias (is Tenn in the "east coast" ?) disrespecting LT, the Chargers and the west coast :tdown:

    :icon_tease:

    Are these the stats of a coverman?

    12tds, 13ints, QB rating of 66?
    Maybe LT turned them down?:icon_huh:

    When the NFL decides they are going to tout a mediocre talent, they go all out.

    Well, it's an overstatement to call him mediocre. But Young did not do enough in his rookie season to warrant him being on the Madden cover.

    Vince is the single most overrated player in the NFL right now, right next to Jay Cutler.

    This offseason has just gone from bad to worse, and now to just plain ridiculous :no: .

    Can we fast forward to the 2008 NFL Draft so I can get my Darren McFadden jersey.

    I think that the only choice that would have been fair to all was TO. It's an honor he truly deserves.

    I don't think so, Titans will play for the division title and
    Denver will be fighting with Qakies for place 3 or 4
