Ever since Ray Lewis' cover year, the guys at EA have focused on a new element to include in the game. '05 was better linebacker controls with the hit stick. '06 with McNabb was more QB control with QB Vision, '06 was Alexander with the Highlight Stick and a focus on the running game. Why would they revert back to positions they've already done, and move away from those themes? We should fully expect either a CB or a WR for '08 - think maybe Chad Johnson or a Champ Bailey. I personally hope for a CB, so that way we can get better defensive back control. Getting interceptions is really a craps shoot as much as it is timing a route.
I really agree with you on this. I've been saying it as well. Wide Reciever or Defensive Back will be the cover for this years copy of Madden. I would be surprised if it wasn't either one of those positions. If it isin't either one of those positions I would expect either Peyton Manning, or Tomlinson. Otherwise it should definatly be Chad Johnson or Champ Bailey.
