Congratulations to everyone for getting thru this initial season on the Xbox One, we would like to welcome all the new users & thank you for your participation. In what was a very close race between 2 candidates all season, came down to the last 2 games & quite frankly a struggle of a game against Carolina probably hurt Drew Brees, QB of the New Orleans Saints. Through a strong season, leading his team to the #1 Offense, #1 Seed in the NFC & his team to a 14-2 record, TSG is proud to announce it’s TSG Madden 25 CF (Xbox One) Season 1 MVP…… QB of the Washington Redskins, Robert Griffin III.
The cover campaign featuring both legends and current stars for Madden NFL 25 has reached the finals in the two brackets. The “Old School” and “New School” participants have been shaved down to two each with the eventual winners from each side facing off for the cover honors.
Barry Sanders goes up against Jerry Rice while Arian Foster will take on Adrian Peterson. Foster’s run is the only thing that could be considered a surprise especially having quit social media prior to the tournament. He has gone on to beat Julio Jones, Colin Kaepernick, and now Russell Wilson. There are currently one, two, three, and four seeds remaining. Peterson is likely to move on (he absolutely CRUSHED Robert Griffin III) with the Rice-Sanders pairing (both collected about equal percentage with comparable opponents) much more difficult to call.
Voting is completed through the ESPN SportsNation Page. The fifth round runs until April 17th when it will move forward to the overall finals.

Another round has passed without any big surprises and the result is some epic pairings to vote on. Colin Kaepernick is gone in what some might consider an upset due to his #1 seeding but he never had near the support of other high seeds – it was evident after the first round that he wouldn’t be a contender. The match-ups are Joe Montana vs Barry Sanders, Jerry Rice vs Deion Sanders, Arian Foster vs Russell Wilson, and Robert Griffin III vs Adrian Peterson.

While the NCAA Football series has a long way to go in order to regenerate trust with consumers following last year it may have found at least a temporary reprieve from the negative perception upon it with the reaction to gameplay news that flowed out recently. Though nothing necessarily remarkable was announced the improvements and additions were met with a sense of acknowledgement of their potential value and long-overdue nature.
Nearly 5K respondents made their opinions known in a poll last week by PastaPadre and the results were overwhelmingly in favor of giving NCAA Football 13 more consideration considering the information.
44% were encouraged by the gameplay details and feel they are more likely to buy now than they were prior – only 8% were discouraged and beginning to close their minds to a purchase. In total 71% are leaning towards buying the game and 29% are heading the other direction.
Those numbers have to be welcome news for EA Sports as the company has faced a higher level of skepticism towards the product than any in recent memory. Anything that starts to trend the discussion towards NCAA 13 as opposed to the failures of NCAA 12 is going to be seen as a success from their end.
