According to the Facebook site for Madden NFL 09, the cover athlete is expected to be announced on April 25. Moreover, a quick check of the CBS schedule for Late Show with David Letterman shows that Favre is going to appear as one of Dave’s guests tonight (April 24). For the past few years, EA has used late-night shows to announce the Madden cover. Last year Jimmy Kimmel’s show was used to announce Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young for Madden 08.

I am not surprissed if Brett Favre is the cover of this years Madden. With his going into retirement, it is a good way to send him off. I just wonder how the Madden curse is going to work with him retired?
