Darn now that I know that I will have to change my predictions for this season, we might just beat the mighty homeboy twice!

The "Madden Curse" is kind of funny. I am not personally a believer, because there's no real concrete reason it should continue happening the way it does.

However, the Curse continues to happen, whether I believe it or not. So I guess we'll see.

Add that they also lost their #1 CB and best PR/KR for a minimum of 10 games and I'd say the Madden curse just got an early start this year.

VY will accept any challenge and believes in his heart he can overcome anything. Never have met the guy, but that's what I have heard and read about him.

I find it rather amazing the guy just keeps getting better and better regardless of what the skeptics say. Yeah his mechanics are little different, but he just get it's done, and his way! Gotta love that!

BTW, infantrycak, I am a very loyal UT fan that went to both Rose Bowls. Even after the 2nd Rose Bowl I was skepitcal of VY in the NFL. A buddy that went to the game with me asked me the next day, "What does this guy have to do prove it to you?" I had no answer and ceased being a skeptic on VY playing in the NFL.

Bottom line, if there is a Madden curse, VY is the only guy that can break it in my opinion!

I dont' think Eddie George should qualify. He had his best year during his Madden cover. Fumbling the ball should not qualify as a jinx, because every player is going to make mistakes during a season, even the best of them (albeit the fumble was during the playoffs, but still, he suffered no injuries).

But the rest of the covers are some very intriguing coincidences.

Though the official announcement wasn't due until later tonight, the cat is out of the bag: Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young is the cover athlete for this year's Madden NFL game. The honor was supposed to be revealed on tonight's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where the cover athlete is a surprise guest.

The loss of PacMan is a huge thing too. He was the key to a number of their wins. He maybe makes the ProBowl if he isn't doing the repugnant human being thing.

VY wasn't doing his magic every week, PacMan had a lot to do with the Titans' success.

Young was incredible on 3rd downs last year with 10 TD's (6 passing and 4 running) and a 64.6 first down conversion ratio, with five 20+ passing throws and 8.7 yards every time he took off running on 3rd down. That had as much to do with the Titan wins as anything pacman did.

I thought you watched every Titans game. Can you honestly say the Titans would have won 5 games without PacMan?

If your QB is nearly unstoppable on 3rd down...you are not going to lose too many games. The Titan defense gave up over 400 points. They were only one of two teams that gave up that insane amount of points.

Yeah, that 10 game suspension is gonna hurt and I personally think it is stupid. I believe Henry is the one that has been convicted by the law and his punishment is less. PacMan has just been in the wrong place at the wrong time but has not been convicted of anything. "Innocent before proven guilty" is just a cool phrase I guess.

Nothing like Titans love on a Texans board.

Young is still more a rb than a qb and with all the Titans loses, he will have to be a WR too.

Only the silly (like the media) would credit all the Titans' wins to VY and only the silly would credit them all to Pacman. Fact is both played well and poorly in some games and the team won and both had spectacular games where they made the difference. Take Pacman or VY off that team and replace them with Petey or Carr and they lose 2-3 games more either way.

The running game was pretty good as well, yet it never got any recognition.

Check out Henry's yards per attempt with Collins in the game...and then look at it with Young....an astounding difference.
