Woodhead, Hillis advance in Madden tourney

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead continued his remarkable run in the Madden ’12 cover vote, but considering he’s matched up against Packers QB Aaron Rodgers in the third round, his streak is probably about to end.

Woodhead, a dark-horse candidate at the beginning of the 16-man tournament, knocked off Giants WR Hakeem Nicks 57 percent-43 percent, but he’ll face a tough candidate in Rogers, who blasted Lions DT Ndamukong Suh 72-28 in the first round and Rams QB Sam Bradford 76-24 in the second round and appears only to be growing stronger.

In the other half of that side of bracket, Browns RB Peyton Hillis – originally a No. 10 seed as compared to Woodhead’s No. 4 – surprisingly edged Falcons QB Matt Ryan 51-49 and will meet Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles.

On the other side of the bracket, 49ers LB Patrick Willis – who upset Steelers WR Hines Ward in the second round – will meet PETA favorite/Eagles QB Michael Vick.

The final quarterfinals matchup between Saints QB Drew Brees and Vikings RB Adrian Peterson might be the most intriguing vote of the third round.

I'll actually buy Madden for the first time in years if Woodhead gets on the cover.

Just think, 20 years from now my kids will look at that cover and say, "who the hell was Danny Woodhead?"

Actually no; they are related to Blake Griffin as luck would have it....they are part black too.  haha....okay maybe not really...they both look like farm hands to me.......The funny part is that when Blake Griffin first hit the NBA an apparently ill advised host had made mention of Griffin being white and one of the black hosts was very quick to say NO......HE'S BLACK.....haha....yea sure...who cares......We are all mutts at this point.

 Nice to seea few white RBs making a mark in the NFL. I find it funny how the press love to print stories about black QBs being discriminated against yet they ignore how white RBs, CBs and WRs are discriminated against much more often. It's a total double standard considering QB is the one position that isn't completely dominated by black players, do they want to dominate every single position? Gimme a break.
