Madden ’08: Vince Young

Vince Young was able to land on the Madden Cover after only his second year in the NFL. Some people don’t believe that Young had done enough to warrant being selected for the Madden cover. In fact, Jeff Smith of Sportscasting.com ranked him as the #1 most undeserving player of a Madden cover.

"Pretty easy to forget that Young graced the cover of this popular video game series. Why was Young on the cover of Madden? Honestly, it makes little sense. The third-year quarterback had thrown for less than 2,600 yards in each of his first two seasons, while posting a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 21:30. Jeff Smith on Vince Young"

Vince Young didn’t have the best stats through the air, but coming out of college he was mostly known for his ability to use his legs to create offense. Plus, in his rookie season, he was voted to the Pro Bowl.

"Sure, he rushed for 10 touchdowns over those first two years, but overall, he definitely didn’t deserve to be on the cover of Madden. In addition to being featured, he was unfortunately hit with the curse the very next season, as he played in just three games all year long, throwing for 219 total yards. Overall, Young’s career has to be called a bust. Many people don’t remember that he was on the cover. Jeff Smith on Vince Young"

Young was one of the most popular players coming out of college after what is considered the best National Championship game of all time between Texas and USC.

After all the hype coming out of college, Young was able to put together two seasons of some success, so it wasn’t crazy at the time to think he was about to turn the corner on something great.
