The NFL is just a hard league.

Imagine what people would be saying if Tom Brady or the Patriots had been on the cover?

Venomish3305d ago

it is a known phenomena called regression to the mean

Its seems like a pretty true curse. I mean Mike Vick was on the cover one year. And the second I saw that Favre was on the cover I knew something would go wrong. LOL.

They're just prepping for an insane bounce back next year, like the Dolphins.

Not. lol

They have Megatron and Kevin Smith COULD have a decent season next year. The problem is defense and QB.

Also i'd probably say Duante Cullpepper would be #2 for me, followed by #3 for Vick.

Madden just sucks and the player injures himself on purpose because they're just that embarrassed of representing such a crappy game and a crappier brand.

I can't wait for the start of the "fifa curse" ... so far all we got in football ( screw the name soccer) are some players that had been slacking off and playing fifa too much

Bit hard to know if there is a curse since no other
player gets a chance since chucking ronholdino on the
cover for the last 10 years lol

The Madden Curse Is about the Player getting Hurt not sucking.. Every madden cover player has gottin hurt during the year...
