I dont really think its a good thing for ray lewis(it might be a good thing for the texans) to be on the cover since people like mike vick and marshall faulk have been injured in the preaseason after being in the madden cover
But it is official, ray lewis is in the madden cover

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh lord!!! Take me! Take me now!!!

I can't believe one of the most dominant LB's to take the field is about to take the plunge like this. At least he'll be a monster in the game (that always seems to be the tradeoff although the exception IMO is Daunte Culpepper).

this isn't a surprise at all...he was featured in the commercials that aired during the last draft and with the advent of the defensive playmaker control, it seems like a natural progression...

Call me crazy, but I don't see the curse returning this year... :crazy:

I agree, I don't see Ray-Ray falling to the curse. Personaly I don't even think that there is a curse out there that could hurt him. But only time will tell and history has the upper hand. (can't forget about Eddie George)

The website says since the defense has been enhanced for Madden 05 they wanted a defensive player on the cover. Now, I'm not superstitious or anything but I'm glad its Ray Lewis and not one of our guys. :mag:

You can key on certain players, double team receivers and whack em with the right analog to injure them or knock the ball lose. The right analog trick could also lead to missed tackles, matt stevens

Actually, I read that the right stick (Called the "hit" stick) will increase the chances of a fumble and the hit itself on defense, but not injuries... I'm not too sure, but I think the stick can also be used on offense to break tackles?

KEY FEATURES

New Hit Stick - Change the momentum of a game by using the right analog stick to make a huge hit, force a turnover, and send the crowd into a frenzy. Time it just right or you’ll get burned for a big play.

New Defensive Playmaker Control - You are now in complete control on defense. Modify pre-snap assignments, including double teams and player-specifi c match ups, for any defensive player on the field.

New Storyline Central - Get inside the NFL like you never have. Now your games are impacted by the stories that surround your team. Satisfy your star WR’s demands or watch your team chemistry suffer. Get the scoop from local and national newspapers, email from assistant coaches, and Tony Bruno’s weekly radio talk show.I am digging the storyline central.

I wonder if it gives you a better opportunity to sack the QB. I also hope that the control doesn't help you whack players to injure them. I don't want Madden to lose it's class and be like NFL Blitz or anything dumb like those games.

Well....linebacker is a position were you have to be aware and concentrated on what your doing
If Ray thinks about getting injured and about the curse, then he will get injured
I think he will only get injured if he really believes in curses

There is no real evidence against Lewis. So let the courts hammer it out.
