Calvin Johnson crushes Aaron Rodgers to make championship of Madden 13 cover contest
But I expect Megatron will be on the cover, and for all the Madden Curse believers out there: You can stop now. It's fun to joke about and we all have a good laugh about it, but in the end being on a video game cover does not determine your fate the following season. There's no evil witch hanging out at EA headquarters with voodoo dolls of all the NFL players awaiting to be plucked and messed with. Those on the cover who happened to get injured, well, this is football, people. Not exactly one of the safest sports out there.
Detroit Lions fans should embrace this opportunity. The team's been the laughing stock of the league for years and years, and finally they're in the spotlight in a good way. This will probably be your only chance to vote for a Lion for years, and once this Madden Curse nonsense is behind us, you'll regret not doing so. Vote for Megatron. He deserves the honor a lot more than some young QB who hasn't proven himself yet.
Click here to vote. Voting takes place through April 25. The winner will be announced at 5 p.m. on SportsNation on ESPN 2.
