Buccaneers: Tom Brady a no-brainer for the cover of Madden 22
By Rob Leeds
Is anyone actually surprised that Buccaneers QB tom Brady is on the cover of Madden 22?
If there were any players more deserving than Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes to be on the cover of Madden 22, we’d like to see them. These quarterbacks led the Buccaneers and Chiefs to the Super Bowl last season, and both teams look poised to win their conferences again in 2021.
Brady and Mahomes are two of the most recognizable players in the league right now, and while the way that EA Sports announced who would be on the cover was a small slight against Brady, it isn’t that far off base.
The initial teaser for the cover was a picture of two goats. Surprisie, surprise, one of the players was Brady. Tom Brady has been called the GOAT for years now, almost to the point that any time a sports fan sees a goat, the first thought is Brady.
The second goat was harder to determine. Speculation ranged from players like Drew Brees to Aaron Donald, and that is because there isn’t a clear second GOAT in the NFL, not even Mahomes, and certainly not yet.
If you ask anyone who the second best player in NFL history is, there is a wide range of answers that are viable and easy to argue. Heck, before Brady, the conversation for the best player was also up in the air.
That just shows how much of a massive impact Brady has on the game of football. No one even questions the GOAT status any longer, and the Buccaneers are blessed to have this player on the cover of one of the most popular sports games in the world wearing their jersey.
While Brady is not the first player on the cover of Madden to play for the Bucs, he is the first to wear the pewter and red on the cover. This is a historic step for the Buccaneers as they emerge as one of the preeminent franchises in the NFL, and the guy on the cover of Madden 22 played a massive role in this change.
