ROUND 2 BREAKDOWN OF MADDEN NFL 12 COVER VOTE CAMPAIGN
· 76% Aaron Rodgers / 24% Sam Bradford
· 57% Danny Woodhead / 43% Hakeem Nicks
· 51% Maurice Jones-Drew / 49% Jamaal Charles
· 51% Peyton Hillis / 49% Matt Ryan

· 39% Mark Sanchez / 61% Drew Brees
· 62% Michael Vick / 38% Andre Johnson
· 60% Patrick Willis / 40% Hines Ward
Our Round 3 Picks:
Aaron Rodgers vs Danny Woodhead
Winner: Well Woodhead has had quite a run until now but there is no way he beats out Super Bowl Winning QB Aaaron Rodgers on this one.
Jamaal Charles vs Peyton Hillis
Winner: This one is what I would say is too close to call. They both won by a 51%/49% margins so this one is pretty much a toss up.
Drew Brees vs Adrian Peterson
Winner: Drew Brees absolutely crushed Mark Sanchez and I think he will do the same thing to A.P. on this one. QB’s always get all the love.
Michael Vick vs Patrick Willis
Winner: Mike Vick easily beat out Andre Johnson and he should do the same thing to Patrick Willis. Patrick Willis is a great MLB and probably will be for the next several seasons but MLB’s don’t beat out QB’s at anything.
