So why did he already get on the cover of Madden then?
OverHYPED. Not overrated.
Because the Madden cover isn't about honoring a player's performance...it's about selling a product.
Hype = name recognition.....and name recognition = sales.
I just read 2 more articles on VY at ESPN.com. Wow, surprisingly they weren't that bad.
So Brett Favre doesn't deserve to be on the next cover? I mean if it's not about honoring a player's performance..
Because it's more about selling products than a players performance. Have you ever seen the best kicker on the cover? Only an idiot could possibly think that VY is overrated instead of overHYPED.
This argument doesn't make sense. Brett Favre's on it because he is recognizable and will sell the product, this is the same reason young was on it. After vince's rookie year he became a fan favorite and that's why he was on the cover.
This thread is pointless now.
No after his rookie year everyone expected VY to produce some of the same results (awesome plays and wins), and while our defense was able to make up for VY's mostly horrible play, we got the wins and made the playoffs.
VY was overrated AND overhyped coming out of college, because of his dual threat ability everyone saw in the Rose Bowl. But when he was hurt last year and his legs/scrambling ability was taken away everyone saw he was nothing more than an average at best pocket passer. If he actually had good WRs that'd be different, but until then I guess we'll have to see how he does with below average receivers.
It's less the WR's and more because of VY. Just because our WR's don't put up the stats doesn't mean their bad WR's.
