T.O. returns to football, on the cover of Madden

The last great alternative to the primary NFL video game franchise had Terrell Owens on the cover. The latest installment of the only remaining NFL video game franchise has Terrell Owens on the cover.

Yes, T.O. will be on the cover of Madden 19, wearing a Cowboys uniform. They’re calling it the “Hall of Fame Edition,” and it comes out on August 10, the Tuesday after Owens enters the Hall of Fame.

Here’s a look at the new features of the latest edition of the game, which presumably will feature the new kickoff configuration and, possibly, removal of any graphics in which the computerized player attempts to use his helmet as a weapon.

A retired player last appeared on the Madden cover in 2013; Barry Sanders was on the cover of the Xbox 360 and PS4 editions of Madden 25. (Adrian Peterson graced the cover of the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Madden 25.)

The good news for Owens is that he won’t have to worry about the Madden curse. Unless he does indeed get another shot to play in the NFL.

Given the current overall quality of the Cowboys’ receiving corps, maybe they could use him.

    Been a minute since I laughed aloud at a quip on here. Good on ya.

    Kind of a cheap shot at the Cowboys WR group though. I dislike the Cowboys but give them a chance to not stink before saying they stink

    If you’re over the age of 25 and still play Madden, at least have the courtesy to spray febreze in mom’s basement when you’re done

    Instead of going out and spending a bunch of money my friends and I will play ever once in awhile for hours on a guy night. Have done it for the last 17 years. I’m sure our wives would rather us play video games then stay late out at the bars. And yes we all have college degrees and real jobs.

    Sorry, we’ll get off your lawn soon.

    Febreze it before you leave.

    I taught my 79 year old father how to play an old Tiger Woods golf game on my old 360 this past winter. He deals with winter time depression and this past winter was his most positive winter he’s had in decades. It kept his mind and hands busy.

    My only regret was not introducing it to him sooner.
    Don’t let strangers on the internet try to shame you into their beliefs.

  6. TO was a much better 49er than Cowgirl…just saying. Stats don’t lie.

  7. “The good news for Owens is that he won’t have to worry about the Madden curse. Unless he does indeed get another shot to play in the NFL.”

    The Madden Curse knows no bounds. He could still lose his HOF spot…

  8. I wonder who will introduce T.O at his enshrinment this summer? I’m sure he’s developed some relationship with someone somewhere, which hasn’t totally deterioted to the point where they dont cringe when they see or hear his name.

  9. NFL 2k5 is still better than any Madden, including this gem of Madden games.
    Hopefully the exclusive agreement ends soon.

  10. I wonder if the game will have the latest mandate from the league included…

    At the end of the half and at the end of the games, QB’s are no longer allowed to take a knee to down the ball…

    What they have to do now is fall all the way down to the ground. And when they’re getting back up, at no point may they have just one knee on the ground.

    If a player slips or is pushed with the ball and he stumbles and ends up on one knee, he and the team will be fined.

  11. I’m not a fan of TO, but the last good NFL game had him on the cover (ESPN 2K5). It’s awful that Madden is the only option we have.

  12. Just Pre-Ordered the HOF version tonight. Can’t wait. I am 39yrs old and was the generation that grew up with Atari and Nintendo.

    The “Stay Off My Lawn” generation doesn’t understand that about us. Too bad so sad. I won’t be losing any sleep over it.

  13. NFL Gameday had a good stretch of games on PlayStation in the late 90s. Nothing has ever been better than Super Tecmo Bowl. I went through a controller or two playing that game.
