You know what's mind boggling....is that why do the players continue to put themsleves on the madden cover???

You;d figure they'd learn their lesson by now....Like McNabb for example, either he is stupid or just didn't beileve in such thing as the Madden curse

I printed out and use the altered cover with Jason Taylor on it, and look what happened, he has a foot problem and isn't 100%.........maybe we should all make a cover with Tom Brady on it so the pats don't win another game then we can work back into 1st place.

Or McNabb's agent decided that whatever EA pays for front cover royalties was worth more than that curse. :D

Wasn't Manning on some cover? I think it was NFL fever. Look how he's doing.

Yeah, it was Fever. In fact, he was on 3 Fever covers, 2002, '03, and '04. Of course Manning's success doesn't dispute the myth, since the myth is the Madden curse. NFL street could go either way, it's not Madden but it IS an EA title. But both guys on that cover (Shockey and Williams) have had problems. Wasn't Marino on a cover once? I could have SWORN I saw him on the cover of some football game, I just can't remember which.

If they go old school and put Madden on it he will probably die. I say they stick Tom Brady on the cover although it will probably be Manning or Steve Smith.

McNabb had a really bad start a couple of seasons ago...he was averaging something like -3 points per game on my FF team (now that's terrible)... I ended up having to replace him with Flutie who was filling in in place of a blustery Brees...so I'm not sure whether it's the curse on this occasion or just McNabb lol

Ray Lewis didn't have a bad season last year and he was on the cover. He was the first to survive a Madden cover. The worst curse bite had to be Vick's :lol: I couldn't believe it when I heard how bad he went down and I just knew it was Madden curse. Vick even went on that year to say "I wish the best of luck to the next guy" Madden has talked about the curse. Soon I think they'll go back to the days of just putting John on the cover. But I tihnk they'll try 1 more defensive player to see if that guy avoids the cuse. The Madden curse is no big secret anymore.

He didn't survive the curse. He missed the last game of the season against us. He got 0 INT's last year, he's had at least one every year including 6 the year before.

Who ever is on the cover has a season ending injury.

Every year the player on the cover of the Madden NFL Football game from EA sports gets hurt or has a terrible season. Examples from the past: Ray Lewis was on the cover the year he got hurt, same for Mike Vick, and Marshall Faulk.

Hence the Madden Curse.

Why would they do that? Wouldn't that mean the Patriots would be getting some respect? Everyone should know by now that the Patriots never get any respect. Just listen to Rodney Harrison, or anyone else on that team.

OK next time I'm gonna be specific, stats wise I didn't really care about. I meant more along the lines of injury, EVERY other guy got hurt that was on the cover. I think broken bones are worse than not getting an INT 1 year.
