Though this would have been unthinkable before last season (and if there wasn’t a lockout right now, I probably wouldn’t have even thought to think about it), Browns RB Peyton Hillis is in the finals of the Madden ’12 cover tournament.

And with the way his fan base is performing, he’ll have an awfully good shot of defeating Eagles QB Michael Vick to win the cover.

Hillis, a No. 10 seed, easily beat Packers QB Aaron Rodgers 61-39 to advance to the finals, and he will face Vick – a No. 3 seed who knocked off Vikings RB Adrian Peterson 59-41.

With the exception of his 51-49 second-round victory against Falcons QB Matt Ryan, Hillis has cruised through the tournament, compiling at least 60 percent of the vote against each of his opponents.

How could it be anyone other than Tim Tebow, the greatest football player in the history of football?  The guy who "works harder" and "wants it more" than anyone else.  Everyone knows Tebow is a "winner" a "leader" and a "great guy".  All football honours should go to Tebow - this is heresy!
