You can vote right now for who you think should get it, and SportsCenter will be airing the Madden 2007 cover player tomorrow at 6pm. Hopefully they'll also provide us with some information. I feel if it's not Shaun Alexander/Ladanian Tomlinson they will go defensive by selecting (my gut tells me) a Dolphin. The most obvious being Zach Thomas, but they won't because they had Ray Lewis (LB) in 2005. (drumroll please) Jason Taylor #99 the other half of the Dolphins heart and soul. You heard it here first!

I would think the same thing, except from what I can remember (maybe in the last 5-10 years) they have never selected a player from the superbowl champion team.

Shaun Alexander.

Also, Tom Brady can't be on the cover because he's appeared on other games (last I heard that's the reason why some guys can't be on the cover).

If that doesn't apply, then Peyton Manning is way overdue.

Shaun Alexander gets it rumor the thing there adding in both madden and ncaa is a rb playmaker ability more juke moves better touch sensitive control and all that crap

Shaun Alexander gets Madden Cover
Reggie Bush gets NCAA Cover

If depends on this year's new feature: I doubt they will focus on the QB vision/pressision passing thing again, so I don't think it will be Ben.

If they improve the run it will be Shawn Alexander or LT.

BUT,if EASports, listen to a poll they made on their website about 1 month ago asking "what Arena Football feature should be implemented on the next Madden?", this year's new feature would be the ability to control the WR after the snap, in this case, the cover would be Hines Ward or another WR.

BTW, I voted for Hines Ward

Well if it's worth jepordizing playoff chances to look at how nice Ronnie looks on the cover yea sure I GUESS. But to me it's not worth it until after we end this whole streak of not making playoffs. We NEED to make playoffs soon, seriously... Cause I don't wanna hear other fans'/ESPN's **** about how the Phins missed playoffs again, and they won't be like "Oh it was Madden curse" Sure you can say you don't give a **** what they think, but anything anti-Phins gets annoying to me quick.

Probably Shaun Alexander, Larry Johnson, or Ben Rothelisberger. Maybe even Jerome Bettis since everyone likes kissing his ***.

Anyway, this should be in the Gaming forum with all the other threads asking this question.

Man, they better not pick a Dolphin... Mike Vick was on 04, he broke his leg. Ray Lewis in 05, though I am not positive he got hurt. And last year Donovan Mcnabb and we know how that turned out... So, anyone but one of the Dolphins. That is one honor you don't want.

Thats bull**** now. Ray Lewis had a great season. Eddie George, the first to be hit with the "Madden Curse" had 3.4 yards the next season. People forget he usually put up averages around 3.4-3.7 a season.

I guess McNabb and Vick were freaky though...

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (April 21, 2006) -- Electronic Arts announced that NFL MVP and NFC champion running back Shaun Alexander (http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/187382) will appear on the cover of Madden NFL 07, the newest iteration of the EA SPORTSâ„¢ best-selling football franchise with the official videogame license of the NFL and its players. With this year's focus on the running game, Alexander is the perfect representative for the cover of the most popular football videogame franchise. Last year Madden NFL 06 sold more than six million copies.
http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gif "To be on the cover of Madden NFL 07 is a big milestone in my career since I have always been a huge fan of this franchise," said Alexander. "EA SPORTS is focusing on the running game in this year's version, so I was honored when I was chosen to be on the cover to represent the improved running game."
Alexander, who was named the NFL MVP and selected for his third consecutive Pro Bowl this past season, is the hottest running back in the NFL. He has rushed for over 1,150 yards in each of the last five seasons. As the most valuable player in the NFL he rushed for a league-high 1,880 yards and 27 touchdowns on 370 carries. He also caught 15 passes for 78 yards and one touchdown, scoring an NFL-record 28 touchdowns and setting a new single-season rushing touchdown record. In addition, he extended his NFL-record number of seasons with at least 15 touchdowns to five. During the season, Alexander became the Seahawks career leader in rushing yards (7,817) attempts (1,717) and 100-yard games (33).
Coming into its 17th year and with more than 51 million copies sold, Madden NFL Football continues to stand out as the most popular football video game franchise of all time with a combination of innovative new features and the most authentic football game play. Developed in Orlando, Fla., by EA Tiburon Madden NFL 07 will be available in August on Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system, the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube™, and Nintendo DS™, PC, PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) handheld entertainment system and Game Boy® Advance.

A coach?!? That's dumb. What would the new feature be, having a dream team of NFL talent and still losing the championship to a "gimmick Big 12" team? :lol: GO LONGHORNS!

OK, I'm done, lol. But seriously, a coach on the cover would be stupid. It would be really funny if it is a KICKER, since the huge 3 page article on NCAA 07 is a lot about fake punts/FGs, and about the new total control onside kicking and stuff.

IDK where this "revamped running game" talk is coming from in NCAA, there was nothing about a boost in the running game in the huge IGN article. The only thing they really mentioned was that, FINALLY, tiny back like Reggie Bush won't be plowing people over, running people over will depend on the size and skill rating of the back. This is LONG overdue, but I wouldn't call it a "feature". It is part of real football, like, the everyday game, the fundamentals, it shouldn't be classified as a "feature" like the passing cone or something, which total changes the gaeplay. "Momentum" running, or a small back nt being able to plow over someone 200lbs heavier than him, should have been in the game from the getgo, at LEAST when it made the jump to PS2
