Despite Rob Gronkowski’s lame theatrics, Calvin Johnson advanced to the semifinals of the Madden ’13 cover tournament. It wasn’t much of a contest as Megatron beat Gronk 63% to 37%.

Calvin now faces intra-division rival, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.  Should he advance passed Rodgers, he will face the winner of San Francisco 49ers stud linebacker Patrick Willis and Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

The voting can be done on ESPN.com HERE.  So Lions fans, cram the proverbial ballot box for Aaron Rodgers.  And then you can head back to the same site next week and make sure that Rodgers beats Willis or Newton.  Voting for the semi-finals starts today and ends April 18.

With the Saints already having done their job in trying to sabotage their 2012, a Madden cover appearance might help Green Bay fall from grace a little bit.
