Why John Madden is the clear choice

After looking at the Madden 23 cover teaser, we don't see the cover athlete being anyone else but John Madden.

Madden was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 5, 2006. His .759 winning percentage during the regular season ranks highest among coaches with 100 career victories

Check out the teaser below:

With his voice in the background of the teaser and the caption of the tweet itself, its got to be John Madden as the next Madden 23 cover.

Madden 23 Cover Athletes

The Madden 23 cover will likely take a bit of inspiration from prior editions. Last year, Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady made it onto the cover.

Back in 2007, the Hall of Fame Edition of Madden 22 had John Madden on the cover. You can check out that cover on an Xbox 360 below:

HOF EDITION: John Madden also made it onto the Madden 07 cover

Considering that there will be multiple editions, we wonder who will make it onto the separate Madden 23 cover.

We think that players such as Super Bowl MVP Cooper Kupp could make a clear choice as a special edition of Madden 23.
