hey, they can just put a redskin on the cover every year and not have an effect! ZING!

You mean a Lion?

Poor guy, i was previously unaware of the Madden Curse!

Oh well, not that into American Football anyways.

Hur hur gamers don't watch football. Lovely stereotyping there.

Awexsome:

JARED ALLEN WAS A CONTENDER!?

Thank god he didn't get it... The last thing the Vikings need is to have the D-line lacking... I panic enough about whether the Williams Wall is going to be intact every game.

The Vikings don't need the Madden Curse to choke. They have been doing it faithfully on their own since the 70s.

They ALMOST had it last season too...

If Favre comes back they still have a good chance this year... we're so damn close it hurts...

I wish I could share the sentiment about Favre, but I doubt he'll be back. He looked pretty banged up after the game against the Saints. As long as Taravis doesn't play, I'll be happy.

Wow. Really? Why Drew Brees? Why ruin one of the best quarterbacks of the past five years? Why? I guess he couldn't pay his way off the ballot like Peyton Manning (why hasn't he been on the cover?). Aye. I wonder what will happen to Brees. Hopefully nothing too serious.

I guess that's the sole upside of being a Bears fan nowadays.

I love the implication that gamers know nothing about football or Doritos. Makes the article all the funnier.

Drew Brees, huh? Hope he doesn't have anything that bad happen to him. They just won the Super Bowl. They beat the Colts.

Y'see? I know about football! See, dad!? I am not a sissy!!!

What exactly is the Madden curse?

The player on the cover of Madden every single year follows it up with one of the worst years of his career.

EDIT: Or he gets injured.

If only they would do that with some British Football players lol

didnt they beat the redskins? yeah, i think they did. SNAP!

Oh snap!

Poor Brees, oh well, at least he done enough to retire.

You know, I'd like to see them pick a Detroit Lions player just to see if they could possibly get worse, or if it would break the curse and make our team actually suck less.

I'm gonna start betting my friends who don't play games that he's gonna get injured this between 2010 and 2011 then when it happens I'll show them this thread. If he doesn't get injured I'd become broke though.

It was voted for on Dorito's website, keep that in mind. I bet every last Vikings fan voted 1000+ times.

Farve was on a cover, sure. And he was beat by the SAINTS! That's not bad enough for some of you guys?

Btw, the horrible OP poking fun at football felt.... bland at best.

Last year, Troy Polamalu and Larry Fitzgerald were on the cover. Polamalu got injured and was out practically all season, but Fitzgerald had a decent year. It seems the only way to counter the Madden curse is to put two people on the cover and have each of them pray that they aren't the one to be injured.

it picks the better player and kills the whole team
Steelers lost to the browns
Steelers lost to the Raiders
Steelers dint even make it to the playoffs

dam you madden dam you

i don't think anybody cares who appears on the madden covers anymore... EA sports puts out a new version every damn year to suck in money from the idiot jocks and sports fans to create longer and better games like Dead Space 2 and DLC packages for their other games...

I hope Brees breaks the curse

And i do hope the Houston,Texans make into the playoffs

Go Texans

Once again, someone is filled to be the roll of the cover of Madden.

When will this end?

yeah exacly, bu last years cover had two players...did they turn out ok?

i think resse will heave a great year once more, hell break the madden curse just like boston broke the goat curse! ;)

Actually the curse of the goat is for the Chicago Cubs not the Red Sox. The Red Sox's curse was the curse of the bambino.

OT: Sorry Drew Brees, I will not be picking you this year in fantasy football. Although you are probably the guy to break the curse.

I can't wait for Madden 13.

Didnt Favre end '09 with a torn bicep (despite never being on the injury report) and basically play the Jets out of the Playoffs and Lose Mangini his job? sounds pretty cursed to me!

I would love to see Jared Allen on the cover but only if he had the picture in his favourite mulled and Jorts (and break the curse.

I hope Brees is OK, heck it will make hs O line much more protective! (also the saints a as whole were in the Madden commercials last year so hopefully the curse will not strike)

I'm just looking forward to a good season as I dont support any Team in general I just like to watch good Football

My theory is that the curse won't affect Brees since he was democratically elected to the cover.

Hey, that might actually help my Lions! GO GO YOU DETROIT LI-ONS!!!

i don't think its a bad idea to let someone else give an NFL game a try. Every year EA releases another game with a few new additions and everyone plays it for a few months before realizing it still sucks. GO PACKERS!

Wow. People still think there's a Madden curse?

I miss the Chunky Soup curse. We should bring that one back.

Whats up with his left arm on the cover. It doesn tlook liek its actually his, just a bad photoshop.
