The lights are on
EA Sports and ESPN have teamed up to allow gamers to vote
for which NFL star will grace the cover of Madden NFL 25. This year's poll
looks to the past, pitting all-time greats against the best players of today.
The poll, which is up and running right now, is divided up
into two divisions: "New School" and "Old School." The Old School poll features
some of the greatest players to ever touch a pigskin, including Joe Montana
(who should just squeak out a victory over Jake Delhomme in his first round
matchup), Barry Sanders, Deion Sanders, Marcus Allen, and Dan Marino.
The New School division will pit current starts like Ray
Rice, Andrew Luck, Arian Fosters, and Adrian Peterson (who better beat Carson f-ing
Palmer in the first round or I quit life).
You can head over to the Madden 25 voting page on ESPN.com
right now and cast your votes for the first round winners. There will also be
live Twitter voting from 4-5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time during the show SportsNation on ESPN 2. SportsNation will release the results of
the polling each week at 4 p.m. EST on Wednesdays.
