    Next Star QB to be injured is....

    All you Titan fans out there I am very sorry for your loss. Vince Young will be on the cover of Madden 2008 and with that will come a devestating injury that will no doubt ruin your season. All kidding aside though it is pretty neat for such a young guy in your organization to be so highly thought of this quickly . As a Bengals fan I'm just glad it wasn't Carson on there.

    They picked a mobile quarterback to be on the cover? It's almost as if they're trying to pick people who are practically guaranteed to get injured.

    I guess Peyton Manning refused? Vince is up and coming, but c'mon he isn't even a top 10 QB in my opinion.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    He's awfully good to be so young. Time will tell, but I like him. He could improve the arm, of course, but I think he'll be better than Vick.

    The only thing I saw was that he won games. Didn't he have like the same amount of INT compared to TDs?

    He's marketable to the key demographics. That's why he's on the cover.

    Glad it's not Chad. :fineprint

    A bit early for Vince to be on a Madden cover IMO - hasn't proved anything in the NFL yet.

    I like him too though and will enjoy watching him on Sundays. I don't think Carson, who has 2 Pro Bowl appearances already, has even gotten a cover yet?

    Then again they put Vick on there, the most overrated QB in modern history, so it's not a suprise.

    I just don't care for QB's in the NFL who have to rely on scrambling ability to make up for their lack of passing skills - they get hurt, have shortened careers, and are inconsistent.

    Hopefully Vince can overcome that and force defenses to respect his arm.

    You are only as good as your offensive line.

    Someone please remind the Bengals' of that - as they need at least 2 upgrades in that area IMO...ecspecially a Center.

    That's the pattern, big mobile QB's seem to be winning the majority of the covers there. Young only adds to the list that already includes Vick and Culpepper.

    Interesting tidbit: LaDainian Tomlinson refused the cover for the 200k offered.

    Not enough cash?.... or was there an ulterior motive behind his refusal?

    Carson was on one of the NCAA Football's.

    Out of curiosity, has anybody heard anything about the new Madden. Any new features etc?

    Didn't feel like tearing a hammy/breaking an arm/being struck by a bus.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    I am a huge Titans fan and thought Young proved a lot last year. As a rookie, he took a team and put them on his back and turned there season around. He is not what I would consider a ruuning quarterback, like Vick. I think Young is a good overall quarterback that just happens to be able to run when he needs to.

    If the Browns draft Quinn, he's your top candidate. Bad OL and bad Browns luck will seal it.
