Today EA announced that New Orleans’ Saints quarterback Drew Brees will be featured on the cover of Madden NFL 11. This honor should be a bit more meaningful to Brees considering that it was the first time fans got to vote on which athlete would appear on the cover.

It should also come as no surprise that Brees won out over Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen and Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne considering the fact that Brees’s team won Super Bowl XLIV and he was named MVP of that game.
After hearing the announcement, Brees stated: “The Madden NFL franchise holds a special place in popular culture and the cover is a coveted position for players all over the league. I’m honored to be the first cover athlete chosen by Madden NFL fans and it’s a great way to cap off an amazing year for the Saints and the city of New Orleans.”

Gamers will be able to pick up Madden NFL 11 on August 10 on the PS3, PS2, Xbox 360, Wii, PSP, and mobile platforms including iPhone OS.

I’m sure there are some football fanatics out there. What do you guys think of this pick? Does Brees really deserve this? Who would you have picked instead? Let us know by leaving a comment below.

    Jake Locker is an athlete and a leeadr. Pure and simple. He made a great run in 2009 and put up great numbers, but the players around him last season were less than spectacular which is why he struggled. Jake has great size, great agility for a QB and toughness is definitely not something an NFL team needs to worry about. If Jake can get picked up by a team where he can learn behind an established QB on their way out like McNabb, Kerry Collins or Chad Pennington then he will be a very effective NFL QB. If Jake gets thrown into the league as a Rookie with expectations that mirror the success of Mark Sanchez, Matt Ryan and Sam Bradford, than Jake Locker will be destined to fail. (David Carr, Ryan Leaf)Jake Locker has all of the tools and can make all of the throws that an NFL QB needs to be able to make, it is just a matter of having the patience to work with him for longer than 1 training camp before making him the 1st string QB.
