Those who were worried about Andre Johnson being on the cover of “Madden ’12″ can put their fears to rest. The Texans’ All-Pro wide receiver has been eliminated from ESPN.com’s cover athlete voting competition for the best-selling video game in the second round.
Johnson, a six-seed in the 32-man competition, lost to third-seeded Michael Vick of the Eagles. The vote was 62 percent for Vick to 38 percent for Johnson. Johnson beat Titans running back Chris Johnson, an 11-seed, by a comfortable margin in the first round.
It would’ve been a nice honor if Johnson had won the competition, giving the unassuming receiver recognition that he very much deserves. But fans of Johnson/the Texans who are believers in the “Madden Curse” likely just breathed a huge sigh of relief.
