Who do you think should be on the cover of Madden 14? Below are a list of NFL players and their respective stats for the 2012-2013 season. Keep in mind this a short list of the top six NFL players I believe deserve a shot at blessing the cover of Madden 14. Feel free to post your comments and select your favorite player in the poll below.
1. QB Robert Griffin III (rookie) – Redskins:
Right now RG3 is the most electrifying QB in the NFL. RG3 lead his team to a playoff berth after more than 5 years of horrible non-winning seasons where the Redskins suffered under the hands of Rex Grossman and Donovan Mcnabb . RG3 is one of the top rated QBs in the NFL, he has the top selling football jersey, (according to NFL.com) and holds the record for the most rushing yards to a touchdowns by a QB. The Redskins finished with a 7 game win streak, atop of the NFC east, and clinched a playoff birth by defeating the Dallas Cowboys 28-18.
2. QB Andrew Luck (rookie) – Colts:
Andrew Luck carried the Colts from an abysmal previous season to a 11-5 record and a playoff berth. Luck set an NFL rookie record with 4,374 passing yards and finished 3rd among the top rated rookie QBs in the NFL. Luck proved that he could fill the shoes of the legend Peyton Manning and then some.
3. RB Adrian Peterson – Vikings:
Peterson made all the naysayers eat their words by nearly breaking the single-season rushing record of 2,105 yards held by Eric Dickerson set in 1984 . Keep in mind were talking about a guy who underwent surgery on the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his knee a year ago. Peterson is one of the top candidates for NFL MVP, he was the 7th player to rush for 2,000 yards in a season and carried his team to the playoffs while eliminating all hopes for the Chicago Bears. Arguably, Adrian Peterson’s rushing season performance probably won’t be repeated by another for the next 15 years.
