EA Sports set up a field of 64 current and former players, and the fans voted Hall of Fame RB Barry Sanders as the winner to land on the cover of “Madden NFL 25″!
I don’t play many video games, – and, from what I’ve heard, this and “NCAA Football” have gone downhill in recent years – but EA is doing a good job generating interest in this 25th anniversary edition.
Barry was one of the classiest players in the NFL, and he is the second consecutive Detroit Lions player voted onto the cover (last year’s was WR Calvin Johnson).
Sanders collided with Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson in the finale, and he captured 58 percent of the more than 700,000 votes.
Hit “Like” if you believe Adrian Peterson is the only running back currently in the NFL who rivals Barry!
