Son of a Biscuit Eater! This is not supposed to happen:
Looks like the "Madden NFL 13" cover vote could be Cam Newton's to lose.
That's because with only a week left in the teammate versus teammate play-in round, Newton has already received more votes than any other player in the competition.
It's not too late though. This is just the first round so we still have hope that Newton's 2013 season (and the Panthers) can be saved. It looks Victor Cruz is a good pick to beat Newton going forward as he has the huge NY market to help over come Newton's outright charm. Check back here for further instructions!
The first round vote has some other surprises. It looks like Michael Vick is in another
dogfight, figuratively anyway:
Should this fact make you wonder if you didn't make a dumb personnel move:
Add to that the fact that Brandon Marshall and Brandon Lloyd are both leading their team's vote even though neither one is currently on the team they are representing, and we could see both the Dolphins and Rams without representation when the vote narrows down from 64 to 32.
When you either trade away or let walk your most popular player has to hurt a little.
