The Madden NFL video game has been a part of a football fan’s experience for decades.
It gave them the opportunity of being a head coach or a general manager that is trying to lead their team to the championship.
The game has been deeply entrenched into the league that the 2021 Pro Bowl featured some players competing in Madden.
There’s also an urban legend behind the “Madden Curse” wherein the featured players on the cover suddenly experience a bad turn in their careers.
But for the latest edition of the game, former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson has a fantastic suggestion on who must be the person on the cover.
Madden should be on the cover this year!!!

The sixth member of the 2,000-yard club is spot on by suggesting that the game’s namesake should be on the cover.
It’s the perfect way to commemorate the legacy of the late head coach and television analyst who recently passed away.
Besides, it’s his name that is in the game’s title, making him the perfect person on the cover.
A Perfect Tribute To Madden
Younger football fans might know him more as a broadcaster than a coach.
But the man they knew from the video game was the youngest head coach to reach 100 career victories.
He never had a losing season and finished his ten-year coaching run with a 75 percent winning clip.
Madden went on to television, becoming one of the most popular and beloved analysts of all time.
His unique voice and emphatic analysis made him a fan favorite wherever he went.
He led the then Oakland Raiders to victory in Super Bowl XI against the Minnesota Vikings.
He passed away on December 28, 2021 at 85 years old.
