The Madden curse is so strong that it will kill Favre somehow.
We need ESPN to come back to the consoles
Bret Favre is the best football player ever. The Genius has spoken.
nah he deserve to be on the cover
IT'S A F#@KING TRIBUTE! Brett Favre is one of the most beloved NFL players of ALL TIME. He is also one of the most successful, and hardest working EVER...at ANY postion. They broke tradition, because they wanted to honor a true hero to "the game". Perhaps it didn't occur to this moron, that EA didn't PUT players on the cover, back when Favre was in his rookie/early years. John Madden HIMSELF insisted on the being the coverboy, until 2001...WELL into Favre's career.
