    Does the Madden Curse really exist?

    I'm pretty sure that there has to be something behind all that, every player that lands on the cover of Madden tends to have problems in their season. Coincidence maybe?



    Who do you think will be on the cover of Madden NFL 2013?

    Tebow is coming in as favorite.

    If you think that Tebow wins, make sure to also place a bet on whether he will be "Tebowing" or not. You can also find it in the SBRbook under NFL PROPS.

    And I read somewhere that Rob Gronkowski is lobbying very hard to get on the cover...

    So who will it be? Make your bets at SBRbook under NFL PROPS.

    Drew Brees lost to Seahawks in the first round coming off the Superbowl though Fitzgerald decent year it was a split cover and Polamaluwas also on it and was cursed very bad by injuries and did not play much or make the Pro Bowl.

    I really hope it's not gronk on there, with his college injury history that would be a devastating piece of bad karma lol

    Of course there's no curse...a lot of people get injured in the NFL....

    Guys like Eddie George, Marshall Faulk, and Shaun Alexander are Running Backs and clearly their stats were going to decline at their age.

    2005 Cover was Ray Lewis...the supposed "curse" is that he got injured in week 15 with a wrist injury....

    2009 Brett Favre....he didn't have good years in '05 and '06 did people really expect him to shine in '08...

    Madden cover is determined by publics favorite perception. The public always loses.

    I feel you the PS2 madden was so much more fun i felt like i had control of my defence, the new maddens suck no turbo, hard to control, very glitchy, new audible sytem sucks and its like they get worst every year. madden 2010 was the only one i moderately enjoyed for ps3.

    what should happen, all being released the same day:

    roger federrer on the cover of madden

    tebow on the cover of NBA2k13

    tiger woods on the cover of "Lets Cheer 2012"

    Headlines the next day:

    "50 billion nerds pissed off for buying deceiving video games"

    Yes, he's the front runner. But I'll take Calvin Johnson as a longshot.

    You think there has to be something to it? Like what? Magic powers deep inside the cover of a CD case that can change the course of a persons success for 12 months?

    Has mommy sat you down and told you about Santa & the East Bunny yet? You are in for one big surprise when she does!

    It all depends on the size of the roster, and the scoring method, and the pick#. I grabbed Calvin 13th out of 14 people in a big pool, and ended up coming in second overall. First round RBs this year are few and far in between, so no point reaching...but we digress. Congrats Calvin, but a big letdown for FF players.
