Though the series has its detractors, EA's Madden NFL
has always remained close with its ardent community of loyal football fanatics. After another successful cover vote
promotion that put Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson in line to make or break the "curse", EA Sports is now opening up their polls to fans for another aspect of the game.
Starting today and continuing through August 24th, gamers can log onto Facebook and cast their votes for who they think should be given the top skill points in a few key areas. For example, log-in now
to vote for which quarterback should be given the highest speed attribute. Will it be Robert Griffin III? Mike Vick? What about Terrelle Pryor? You can decide now. At time of writing, RG3 leads the way. Here's the full schedule of the fan polls:• July 30 – Aug 3: Quarterbacks – Speed, Throw Power, Throw Accuracy, Awareness
• Aug 6 – 10: Running Backs – Speed, Acceleration, Trucking, Elusiveness
• Aug 13 – 17: Wide Receivers – Speed, Spectacular Catch, Route Running, Agility
• Aug 20 – 24: Defense – Speed, Hit Power, Tackling, Man Coverage
As a Titans fan, I'll be campaigning to get Chris Johnson the top speed attribute for runningbacks. Who will you be voting for? Madden NFL 13
takes the field on August 28th.
