Madden 12 Cover Contest: 12th Man Edged By Patrick Willis

The 12th man and Madden 12 seemed to be a match made in heaven for many after EA Sports announced a March Madness style voting contest for the cover of its latest incarnation of the Madden series. But alas, it wasn't to be as the 12th man never made it out of the starting gates with a loss to San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis in the first round. Willis took home 54 percent of the vote, edging the 12th man to move on to the Sweet 16.

The latest Madden cover contest bracket can be found here. Willis and Sam Bradford are the two remaining NFC West candidates after the 12th man and Larry Fitzgerald, Bradford's first-round opponent, were both eliminated early in close votes.

With our horse out of the race, who do you vote for? Michael Vick, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers are all left. Do you vote against the NFC West, and especially Willis, out of spite?
