Aaron Rodgers

Cover boy? Doubtful.

I more or less thought it was a foregone conclusion that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers would be on the cover of the new Madden game.

If you recall, EA Sports and ESPN are running a tournament where people can vote for the player featured on the cover. It’s currently down to four players — Rodgers is facing Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis. Michael Vick is facing Adrian Peterson on the other side of the bracket.

Rodgers and Hillis. Should be a wash for Rodgers, right?


Hillis is winning, as of this morning.

That’s right. A guy with one decent season who plays for a perennial doormat is more popular than the broad-wrangling, legend-vanquishing, Super Bowl-winning quarterback for the best damn franchise in the history of everything.

Obviously, people really like white running backs.

My guess — white people.

If you care, you can vote here.
