If you've ever wondered what a football might see as it speeds into the outstretched arms of Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson, wonder no more. Also, you need better things to think about in your spare time.
Calvin Johnson did the impossible last season, racking up 1,681 yards, 16 touchdowns and the first playoff appearance for the Detroit Lions since leather helmets went out of style. His reward for those accomplishments is the devilish curse brought on by the Madden NFL cover. Ask Peyton Hillis how last year's cover appearance worked out for him.
We like to knock EA Sports for releasing the same games year after year, so it's only fair to give up some props when the developer recognizes a major problem and makes a wholesale change. While Cris Collinsworth and Gus Johnson are two of the best football broadcasters out there, they were boring and inconsistent in the recent Madden games
