Attention Cleveland Browns fans: for those of you that are sick of mediocre (at best) seasons and are in need of reassurance that you have chosen the right team to champion, we bring good news. EA has unveiled the Peyton Hillis cover shot for the upcoming Madden NFL 12.
Also revealed by the publisher was a brief video documenting the Hillis cover shoot and the inevitable limited edition of the annual pigskin sim, the Hall of Fame Edition. Limited to only 125,000 copies and emblazoned with a bronze image of former St. Louis Rams’ RB Marshall Faulk, the Hall of Fame Edition will include one of four randomly-inserted Panini trading cards autographed by Faulk, exclusive Madden Ultimate Team Platinum Pack fantasy football cards featuring hall of famers and former Madden cover athletes, and, of course, a copy of Madden NFL 12.

The Hillis cover, though, outside of being something of a coup for Browns fans with its decisive victory over a possible Michael Vick image, makes us a little squirmy. I mean, he’s staring right at us. …Awkward… Anyway, check out the actual cover shoot in the video below:
