“This is one of the top honors in the NFL – you have truly made it when you are on the cover of Madden NFL Football,” said McNabb. “With the attention and changes they have made to the passing and the focus on the quarterback this year, it was worth the wait to be the cover guy and part of the EA SPORTS team.”
McNabb, who was named to his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl in his seven years in the NFL, is one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the NFL. He is a threat as both a passer and a scrambler. As the second highest rated passer in the NFC (104.7) he became the first player in NFL history to finish a season with more than 30 touchdown passes (31) and fewer than 10 interceptions (8). He appeared in his first Super Bowl this past season and passed for 357 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions.
Developed in Orlando, FL by EA Tiburon Madden NFL 06 will be available in August on the PlayStation2, Xbox, GameCube, NDS, PC and Game Boy Advance.
