The improbable is that much closer to becoming a reality, as Browns running back Peyton Hillis has moved onto the semifinals in the bracket-style vote to see who will be the player to grace the cover of Madden NFL ’12.
After disposing of Ray Rice, Matt Ryan, and Jamaal Charles, Hillis now finds himself against Super Bowl XLV MVP Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers. This is certainly Hillis’ toughest match-up in this bracket up to this point, but Browns fans have obviously been showing up to vote, so anything’s possible.
The other semifinal match-up is between Michael Vick of the Philadelphia Eagles and Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings.
To keep this train rolling, be sure to click here and vote for Hillis. Semifinal voting will end on April 18, at which point we will hopefully continue discussing how wild it would be to see a Browns player on the cover of a video game.
