Couldn't go to a more deserving guy. One of the greatest of all times and I'm not just saying that because I'm a Lions fan (clearly enough people agree with me). Hopefully this game is actually good so I can pick it up.

Nice! Love watching highlights of his.

I need all the Lions fans to check something out for me. I swear Barry is wearing the uniform from his playing days but I'm pretty sure they slapped the new Lions logo on that helmet.

I think you're right.

I like both Calvin and Barry, but I'm not sure I like Lions being back-to-back.

at least the Lions have nice unis.
 
# 8 R0ver @ 04/24/13 10:29 PM
Well, now at least we don't have to worry about the curse affecting anybody...

I'm so glad custom covers exist in this universe. Call me crazy, I like having active guys on covers.

Honestly pretty mad.

I love Sanders, but I just hate having old players on covers (other than Jordan).

If it was the both of them it would be awesome, but just him I don't like.

Should have been Peterson, especially after last year. Voting strikes out again.

I don't think that's the new logo on the helmet. It looks like the old logo with a reflection falling across it.
 
# 13 loccdogg26 @ 04/24/13 11:31 PM
Since Barry won it would be nice if they added these away 1998 uniforms (my fav).

Okay. Thanks.....

Game may be lacking, but easy to like the choice of Barry.

I don't have anything against Barry Sanders but whenever his shortened career comes up it reminds me that as a Redskins fan he ALMOST was on our team but the muthergobsucking Lions wouldn't let him out of his contract so he retired.

Haters gonna hate.

No old school player more deserving. The dude is a phenomenal player and an even better person - which is REALLY saying somethin.

Two reasons one it makes complete sense that Barry Sanders is on the cover, and one that people seem to ignore.

Reason number one being Barry Sanders is one of the greatest running backs to ever play the game if not THE best ever.

Reason number two being this is year Madden is celebrating 25 years which then would make sense for a game to feature a legend of the cover.

Within this 25 year Madden time frame Barry Sanders has done more than Adrian Peterson has so far.

Wasn't Barry Sanders also the first EA Sports "cover athlete"? I vaguely remember the Cyber Barry ad campaign.

You must not be old enough to remember how good Barry Sanders was and how bad his Lions teams were. Maybe because you are a bitter Packers fan? Who knows. I have been a Bucs fan all my life and back then we were in that division with Barry Sanders, and I can tell you I didn't mind one bit watching that beast run all over us. I can appreciate a true legend wether he was a rival or not. Don't let your biased cloud your vision.
