Considering how fragile AJ has been the past couple of years, I'd be worried to risk him. And i don't want to risk Foster. Can't we elect Jacoby instead?

I think Drew Brees escaped the curse:

NFL Playoffs: Did Drew Brees Escape the Madden Curse? (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/566752-nfl-playoffs-did-drew-brees-escape-the-madden-curse)

There have been two main contributors to the Madden Curse: An unexplained decrease in statistical production, or an injury.

Brees threw for the second-highest total yardage in his career (4,620), and was one touchdown shy of tying his career high (33). But he did throw a career-high 22 interceptions.

Since dislocating his shoulder in his last game as a San Diego Charger in 2005, Brees has missed only one start, that being a Week 17 game in 2009 to rest for the playoffs. He started all 16 games this season.

I'm still not liking the odds.

Since he plays in New Orleans I'm sure there was a lot of Voodoo :voodoo: going on to keep him safe.

Read somewhere that is was going to be the Pats TE Gronkowski. I have no idea where I read that so can't provide a link.

And it may not be true

Out of these two vote for Andre.

He's less likely to win the cover IMO, I actually think Foster may have surpassed him as far as national popularity goes or will soon.

Any ways...Tim Tebow will win this...

There's only one choice this year. They might as well announce Tebow now.

He's only going to have enough stock to be a Madden cover athlete after last season, and plus he's guaranteed to prove the Madden curse correct, when he doesn't start a single football game during the season after he took his team to the playoffs.

AJ and AF are safe.

yeah it should be Tebow on Baby jesus could prove if the curse is real or not ........

i wouldnt mind seeing andre johnson gets ome well deserved recognition.. andre has been injured the last couple of seasons, if he gets injured again it wont be because of some curse..

Andre Johnson.. REVERSE THE CURSE...

I got Madden '10 and told the kid... we're not buying another for a few years. Madden never really changes too much. Well... if Foster or Johnson made the cover, I'd definitely buy it. To have them as the 'premeire' player in the system? They're always the top rated in the game so heck yeah!

Curses are ridiculous. It gives me the heebie jeebies too but honestly... its ridiculous.

Arian would be a great cover player, and would give the Texans more pub. The Madden curse is crap.

03-23-2012, 11:56 AM
Looks like Pancakes threw his hat into the ring for the cover, on his resume for why he should make the cover, he wrote:

"Very deep insight to NFL front offices, and can eat 143 pancakes in43 seconds....without syrup."

"Tebow has not only lost his spot as a starting quarterback in the NFL, he's losing the "Madden" vote by a surprisingly wide margin to Arian Foster.

Foster campaigned hard for the cover, spending the day in Bristol to talk up his candidacy, and it looks like all of his interviews paid off. In fact, everyone who spent the day with Foster at ESPN and campaigned for the cover, including LeSean McCoy and Victor Cruz, is winning big, proving that if you want the people to vote for you, sometimes you have to shake some hands and kiss a few babies (or at least, talk on-air about how you're a gamer)."

http://espn.go.com/espn/thelife/videogames/blog/_/name/thegamer/id/7738087/tebow-losing-big-madden-cover-vote

If he wants to Prove the Madden curse wrong, I'll vote for him

In a really close margin (54%-46%), Foster managed to beat out Tebow.

For those who don't want Arian on the cover, no worries, in round 2 he gets Calvin Johnson.

This is where you drop the mic, hold your hand in the air and walk off the stage while giving a menacing look to the audience.

I mean, this is the Photoshop job to end all Photoshop jobs.

Notice is given to all persons who might attempt to do a Photoshop job: I hereby decree that no person shall attempt to create a better Photoshop job from this day henceforth. All attempts shall be deleted and your life source's flame extinguished from the hall of halls. May it be so. [pounding of gavel].

I jus wonder if he can be traded for Skip Bayless.

False Start, please do a photoshop job with Skip Bayless on the cover. I think he needs be decked out in Tim Tebow gear from head-to-toe. With big heart icons all over the cover, lots of teenie-bopper lovie dovie imagery, like the cover of a teen heart-throb magazine.
