The Hillis Are (Is) Alive

With the Sound of Madden. Congratulations to Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis, who surprisingly bulldozed his way past Michael Vick to grace the cover of Madden 12. (Apparently, dogs voted too).

An angel gets its wings any time you use "Cleveland Browns" and "congratulations" in the same sentence, without any irony.

Hillis had a monster year, and led my otherwise mediocre fantasy team into the playoffs. Not bad for a waiver wire pick-up.

We already have the cover for next year's Madden. A SoSG Exclusive.

To see my previous coverage of the Madden franchise, including the most painful-looking glitch in video game history and my record-breaking Tecmo Bowl run with another famous Brown, click yonder.

I'm so happy that sack of shit that doesn't deserve to live didn't get on the cover.

Dan, why so much hate for Tom Brady? :-)

Isn't it ironic...

Hillis was the forgotten man in an Arkansas Razorback backfield that featured Darren McFadden and Felix Jones.

Well, Cam got his first pick, meaning his Dad will no longer have to shake colleges (and phonebooths) down for spare nickels.

What a P.O.S
