The Madden curse is alive and well. Troy Polamalu is out 3-6 weeks after being injured in the first game of the season so now we just wait to see what happens to Larry Fitzgerald. I am predicting he will be injured in the Week 7 game against the NY Giants. Kind of like the office pool for baby due dates but with football injuries...
When will the players stop jumping on the cover of this game??? If I were playing and was asked I would run and hide. I don't care how much was offered to me. Here is a brief history of the curse...
2002-Culpepper on the cover. He was injured for 4 games. Minnesota finished 5-11.
2003-Marshall Faulk. Was not injured but had his worst rushing season to date.
2004- Michael Vick. Broke his leg, missed 11 games.
2005-Ray Lewis. Did not record an interception for the 1st time in his career.
2006-Donovan McNabb. Suffered a hernia and was out for the rest of the season.
2007-Shaun Alexander. Missed 6 games with a broken foot. Dude went away after that.
2008-Vince Young. Didn't play so bad other than 9 TDs and 17 interceptions but what has he done since???
2009-Brett Favre. Do we even have to talk about what has happened to him?????
2010-Polamalu out...Fitzgerald to follow...stay tuned.
