Browns' Hillis is taken down by Steelers' Foote, Timmons and Harrison during the third quarter of their NFL football game in Cleveland Reuters

Peyton Hillis has been chosen for the cover of the Madden ’12 video game, beating out Michael Vick in the final round of fan voting.

“It means a lot to me and my family,” Hillis said. “I just want to say thank you.”

A year ago, Hillis on the Madden cover would have sounded like a joke: Hillis was shipped from Denver to Cleveland last offseason as part of the Brady Quinn trade, and it wasn’t even a sure thing that Hillis would make the Browns’ roster.

Hillis didn’t just make the roster, he became the Browns’ go-to player, carrying 270 times for 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns and catching another 61 passes for 477 yards and two more touchdowns.

And now Hillis is the public face of one of the most prominent consumer products associated with the NFL. In a year, he’s gone from little-known role player to bona fide star.



time to downgrade Peyton Hillis on your draft boards ladies and gents... Also don't forget to trade him away on your dynasty/keeper teams :-D :-D ...

Wow! Peyton Hillis for the cover of Madden, huh?
Quick trivia question 1...when was the last white player the Madden cover boy?
Quick trivia question 2...When was the last white Non-QB the Madden cover boy? (Never? O:-) :-? )

Actually:
2) Madden was on the cover in 2000 - I believe he fits both white and non-QB

On a 4-11 team? :-D

Megatron also ties record for the most games in a row with 100yds receiving or more. And I believe he holds the record for most receptions in a month. Spectacular player who deserves so much better than to be a Lion.

You could have been talking about Barry there as well.
