'Madden 12': Vick finishes off NFC West
By Mike Sando
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis, the final NFC West man standing in the race to grace the "Madden 12" cover, fell from consideration after Michael Vick rolled to a 61-39 percentage victory over him in the latest balloting.
While Vick won comfortably, Willis commanded a higher percentage than Drew Brees, who suffered a 62-38 percentage defeat to Adrian Peterson in the other quarterfinal.
The Vick-Peterson winner faces the Aaron Rodgers-Peyton Hillis winner for the right to suffer a significant injury in 2010, or something like that. Update: Or even 2011.
A consolation prize for Willis: high praise from Ray Lewis.
