Thanks for the link, Subby.  That was neat.  But who ever put together the "Old School" selection is apparently 25 years old.  How does Jim Brown or Walter Payton -two of the most iconic players get left off?
 
2013-03-12 12:55:48 AM  
Why in the fark does Kaep have a 1 seed?
 
2013-03-12 01:00:57 AM  
I can respect Tim Brown as the Raiders 'old school' pick, but I think Rich Gannon and Kenny Stabler also have legitimate claims to have been included.  Janikowski should have gotten the nod over Carson Palmer for the current player slot.

Or Howie Long.  Or Fred Belitnikoff.  Or Marcus Allen in the proper uniform.

Good point.

Or Kurt Warner in the right school AND the right uniform.

And WTF is Jake Locker doing there?!
 
2013-03-12 07:27:55 AM  
Two words:

RAY.  GUY.

No one in football gets any of my recognition for anything they do until Ray gets his.

That's not old school. Bronco Nagurski is old school. Y.A. Tittle is old school. Red Grange is old school. The guys in the link aren't even middle-age school.
 
2013-03-12 07:39:15 AM  
Meh.  I'd want to see someone other than a QB, RB or WR make the cover, and so much for that.

Most people that would be voting have probably never seen any of these guys play. It would all be hearsay and old NFL films clips.

"Why don't you put Jeff George on the cover?"
 
2013-03-12 07:51:59 AM  
I totes voted for Delhomie. Also, I'm kind of surprised the old school bracket doesn't have more "other than QB, rb, and wr" players. Like I'd totally vote for Mike Alstott, for example.
 
2013-03-12 07:55:25 AM  
Needs more linemen, like Russ Grimm or Mike Webster.  Because why the fark not?

/Weren't Sanders, Faulk, and Lewis already on the cover?
//and where the hell is Flacco?

Good point.


He is in the proper uniform.

3 49ers as #1 seeds including a guy who has started...is it 11 games in his "career"?
 
2013-03-12 08:08:53 AM  
RGIII as a #1 seed?!??

This is a f*cking joke.

picodenico: RGIII as a #1 seed?!??

I can't find Brady or Manning either.  This is a weird bracket.
 
2013-03-12 08:22:34 AM  
I can't vote for a picture of the NFL2k5 cover?


/voted for Jake
 
2013-03-12 08:24:36 AM  
This list is BS with OJ!
 
2013-03-12 08:28:09 AM  
List sucks, not old school, etc.

/vote for Delhomme!
 
2013-03-12 08:30:40 AM  
I just went full delhomme.  Please 4 chan.  If there is one poll you should wreck....
 
2013-03-12 08:36:45 AM  
Todd Blackledge or Matt Cassel

who is voting on this stuff?
 
2013-03-12 08:51:30 AM  
Totally voted for the Jake.
 
2013-03-12 08:52:37 AM  
So we're back to supporting EA now, are we?
 
2013-03-12 08:54:16 AM  
Good to see we can all make a push to give Madden the Jake. Now let's do this people!

Well said. No one deserves to be in the Hall before Ray. Punters/kickers are a long forgotten part of the game.  They are now relegated to being actors while pretending to know how to kick.

//Yes, I am a 9ers fan and yes I am talking about David Akers.
 
2013-03-12 09:01:47 AM  
Cortez Kennedy. Hands down. You probably think that sounds absurd. Well a GIS will prove you wrong. Tons of good material for a cover.

/Kidding. Kinda. I would love to see Curtis Martin
 
2013-03-12 09:03:29 AM  
Is buttfumble not an option? unconstitutional

Frederick: Thanks for the link, Subby.  That was neat.  But who ever put together the "Old School" selection is apparently 25 years old.  How does Jim Brown or Walter Payton -two of the most iconic players get left off?


Maybe beyond a certain year, EA doesn't have the rights to those players' likenesses? I have no idea but that's the only reason I can come up with as to why they wouldn't be there.

But you're right, Ron Rivera being there instead of Walter Payton  justseems like they're trolling us.
 
2013-03-12 09:11:13 AM  
Worst sports video game of them all. Haven't bought it for two years and don't plan on buying it again
 
2013-03-12 09:11:17 AM  
No option for Johnny Unitas in a Ravens uniform?
 
2013-03-12 09:11:43 AM  
The wrong L.T. Is on that list.

Walter Peyton is dead, so it would be hard to get him to grant likeness rights.

Jim Brown and EA had a bit of a legal kerfuffle back a few years ago when Brown sued EA for including his likeness in the game (they never used his name or his picture, just his uniform number and an avatar that looked like a big black guy).

Hey, it's not our fault your owner was bat-shiat insane.
 
2013-03-12 09:24:19 AM  
All Jake, all the time.  And if it can't be him, I'm voting for Natrone Means.  The Natrone Bomb.
 
2013-03-12 09:25:57 AM  
My borther and I  are actually friends with Jake. We went to high school together. The last time we talked he mentioned that when he left Cleveland he had options with many teams as the vet back-up, but he wasn't going to do that because he felt he could still start in the NFL. It really is sad when you see a friend lose grips with reality. Both my brother and I told him that he was probably grasping at straws, but he wouldn't hear it. Jake really is a great guy and he still talks to anyone that walks up to him. He is just a good ole cajun boy at heart. He rightfully catches hell here on fark for his woeful performance in that game, but he had a good career which is more than many NFL hopeful QB's can say.

dragonchild: Meh.  I'd want to see someone other than a QB, RB or WR make the cover, and so much for that.


Ray Lewis and Troy Polamalu would like a word with you.

...and they left in Matt Forte. I'm a Bears fan and I voted against him.
 
2013-03-12 09:31:18 AM  
I think John Madden should be on the cover for #25.
