Tim Tebow Added to Madden NFL 11 via Denver Broncos

Tim Tebow Madden 2011 Tim Tebow Added to Madden NFL 11 via Denver Broncos

Selected at this year’s NFL draft 2010, Tim Tebow is already sporting his new uniform, the Denver Broncos.  Will this first round draft pick live up to his name.  Many don him as one of the premier quarterbacks in college last year, so how will he fare in Denver?

It’s no surprise that Tebow was added to the Madden 11 roster. What is a surprise is that Tim Tebow will be the featured cover athlete for NCAA Football 2011 and playable in Madden 11 in the same season. I know there were talks of Tebow going pro, so I’m not sure why EA selected him as the cover athlete. Could it have something to do with him being a Morman? And Morman’s are known to break curses. And we all know that being featured on a Madden cover comes with a price. But not if you’re on the NCAA Football cover… That really made no sense, but I’m just throwing it out there since I’ve got no word from EA.

With a new emphasis on receiver intelligence–including better catching and boundary awareness–as well as defensive opportunities, Madden 11 promises to deliver the most realistic and pulse-pounding football action this franchise has ever seen.

I’m really looking forward to this years version of Madden. I know many people think it’s the same game just a new cover athlete but it’s not. The improvements made year in and year out and enough for a football fan to pick up and play. Being a NY Giants fan, I’d love to see how the new stadium plays. One of my few gripes with EA is their terrible background audiences. They should take a page from MLB 10 The Show since I rated them an “outstanding” in that category. There were some other items we mentioned in our review, but overall Madden NFL 10 was and is their best yet. Let’s see what next years brings.

What are you looking forward to in Madden NFL 11? Stadiums? Rookies? Comment below.

    Just to clear up some confusion, EA has always put guys in the cover of NCAA Football who are going pro the same year Tebow is no exception. Look back at all the previous NCAA Football Covers, they all went pro the year they were on the cover. In fact EA can’t put anyone who is still in college on the cover, it’s against NCAA rules.

    Justthought him being on the cover because he is a Morman is hilarious.

    tim isnt a morman. get your facts straight. actually, i know where he goes to church. He goes to First Baptist Church of Jacksonville. I know some members of his family and one of my closest friends goes there and see’s him there when he’s at home in jacksonville.

    This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever read. Tim Tebow is on the cover because he no longer in college and like shopmaste said they don’t allow current college players to be on the cover. He is also on it because when he was in college he was pretty good, heisman quality good. The moron that wrote this turd is trying, hopelessly to link his religious beliefs to him being on a cover, rather than doing some research.

    Wow way to research your material. This has been the trend every year as the others above wrote as well. Just pathetic.

    @Madden Loyal
    Before you come on here and join the rioters do some research yourself. Last year the PS3 cover athelete was Brian Johnson. Was he a playable character in Madden 10??? Look it up buddy!

    @mrjuandrf
    the reason Brian Johnson was not playable on Madden bc he was in the UFL! But the other 3 cover athletes were on madden. the guy you replied to was correct bc he this has been the trend. If you get DRAFTED like TEBOW did you are playable on Madden. He is not the first cover athlete on NCAA that is playable on Madden the same year.

    @Blaze
    Thank Blaze. You confirm my point with Brian Johnson. But I never said Tim Tebow was the first. Since he was announced as the NCAA Football 11 cover athlete, I was surprised to see his pic uploaded into Madden 2011 so quickly.

    Michael Crabtree was not put in until week 5 or 6. So my point was not everyone is playable in Madden and featured as the NCAA cover athlete.

    Hey writer, Tim Tebow is NOT MORMAN. He is Baptist. He is a member of First Baptist of Jacksonville

    Crabtree wasn’t playable because he didn’t sign a contract. If Tebow fails to sign, he won’t be playable, either, unless they put him in as “QB#15.” Jared Zabransky was on the cover of ’08, because he didn’t get drafted. I’m so tired of all the haters out there who can’t stand Tebow because he’s a Christian. These are the same douchebags that sport Pittsburgh’s #7 rapist jerseys on Sundays. Idiots.

  10. OVER 9000

    Correction: Zabransky was on the cover, but he didn’t PLAY in the NFL is what I meant to type.

    Sorry. Tebow is not Morman. He belongs to First Baptist Church Jacksonville.

  12. Nate

    Your a fucking idiot.

    Dude. Michael Crabtree held out last season for a higher contract, so he didn’t play in his first 6 NFL games. Once he signed his rookie contract with the 49ers, EA added him to the Madden Roster. He was available to play with all along, but he wasnt considered a starter in the game because he was technically not signed with the 49ers. Once Tebow signs his contract, we will be able to play with him.

    Tebow is probably the most over-rated QB drafted in several years. He should have been a 3rd round pick and converted to another position. He simply does not have the skills to be a winning QB in the NFL. I think he might have made a damn good TE though.
