Sounds crazy to me....
For those of you that don't play Madden, they always name it a year ahead. For ex. The new one that comes out in a few weeks will be called Madden 07. This game will feature S.Alexander on the cover. In 2000 Eddie George was the first player on the cover of a Madden game, its was Madden 2001. Up untill this point Madden was on the cover. The cover of madden goes as follows
02 Cpepp 2000 stats 297/474 3937yrds 33tds/16ints 470 rushing yrds 7tds. 2001 stats (the Madden Curse year) 235/367 2612yrds 14tds/13ints 416 rushing yrds 5tds
03 M.Faulk 2001 stats 260 carries 1382yrds 12tds 80 receptions 765yrds 9tds 2002 stats (curse year) 212 carries 953yrds 8tds 80 recptions 537yrds 2tds
04 M.Vick 2002 stats 231/421 2936yrds 16tds/8nts 777 rushing yrds 8tds 2003 stats (curse year) broken leg in the preason
05 R.Lewis 2003 stats 125 tackles 38 assist 6ints 1td 2004 stats 106 tackles 41 assist 0ints ( not bad but he did get hurt late that season which really effected his 05 campaign)
06 McNabb 2004 stats 300/469 3875yrds 31tds/8ints 41 carries 220 yrds 3tds 2005 stats (personal favorite since I had McNabb and Owens) 211/357 2507yrds 16tds/9ints 25 carries 55yrds 2tds
07 Alexander 2005 stats you already know, 2006 stats ?????????
So as you can see the NFL stars on the Madden cover have been plagued with injurys and/or put up bad #s. I could find Eddie George stats, but I know that 1999 was his last good year and that was the year before he was on the cover of Madden.
