'Madden' NFL Star -- Michael Vick Deserved to Win

4/28/2011 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cleveland Browns star Peyton Hillis just beat out Michael Vick for the coveted cover of the Madden NFL 12 video game -- but the running back is super humble, telling us Vick deserved it more.

Peyton had a breakout season last year -- but when we caught up with him in NYC ... all he wanted to do was talk about Vick, saying, "He knows as well as I know ... he probably deserved it a little more than me."

We're sure Hillis wanting Vick to take the cover has nothing to do with the dreaded Madden curse.

Hillis also revealed his backup plan for pro football. Just in case.

I wonder if I commit a disgusting crime but later say "gee, I'm sorry" if everyone will tell me what a great guy I am and look to me as a role model too?

wow    

Congrats on spelling PEYTON's name wrong. It's Peyton with an "E" not an "A".

Nice to see you did the 3 seconds of research (aka a Google Search) to find that out.

I agree Vicks deserved it more, but considering the controversy that selecting him would cause, they went with the safer choice.

Who cares if Vick is a good football player? He's a dog killing psycho. That cancels any good he'll ever do on the field.

Glad to see Peyton win. Millions of little white kids across America can now dream of growing up to play Runningback in the NFL. We've come so far, but we still have so far to go for true equality.

The only thing Vick deserves is to reap what he has sowed! Have done to him what he did to those poor defenseless dogs! Even then it wouldn't be enough.
