Troy Polamalu Graces Madden 2010

polamalumadden10We’re not even close to it being football season, but for sports fans that season comes a few months early courtesy of John Madden and his line of successful video games base on the NFL. The new edition “Madden 10” is stated to be released in early August.

There was a lot of buzz as to who would be on the coveted cover of the ageing player, coach, and commentator’s new installment of the Madden series. In the past John Madden himself was the coverboy from 1990 – 2001. In 2001, EA Sports decided to put other football players on the cover starting a tradition that has gained popularity for the game and for the player featured.

Madden's First Cover In 1990

This time around EA Sports has decided to try something different yet again and have, for the first time, two players on the cover – Pittsburgh Steeler Troy Polamalu and Arizona Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald. Not only are there two people for the first time, but it should also be noted that Polamalu is the first Polynesian to grace the cover! Look at us comin’ up 😉

Check out some behind the scenes footage of them shooting the cover below.
