Who Still Doesnt Belive?

In the Madden Curse, the struggling hes had this season (yes hes put up decent numbers in some games) and The Foot injury keeping him out a couple weeks qualify as gettting hit with the curse, not the most drastic hit but never the less.

SUre, its Madden. I mean the fact that last year was a record breaking career high year, or that Alexander lost the best run blocking guard in football. Only Madden could explain this...

Madden doesnt point fingers, for one reason or another, it just happens. And thats what makes it what it is. No one says things like losing a guard dont contribute, stuff happens, its a curse its all part of it.

Pretty much. Hutch would have stayed if Alexander wasnt on the cover. It's fate. ;-7

I have seen it happen before so I decided if I had to take SA this yr I would.

But if possible I would not, meaning if LT and LJ went one two I would take SA at three.

SA went 1
LJ went 2
LT was mine at 3 and so far I have been very happy!!!!!
First the Shock, then the Pistons can the Lions be next?

Well maybe next yr.

PS I didn't lose a paper bag challenge but somehow as a Lion's fan it just feels right.

time to limit the cover to punters.
A fool and his money are soon parted. I would pay anyone a lot of money to explain that to me.

I have a recommendation for EA Sports - do like SI and start making specialized regional video game covers to stop this darn curse! For example, for this year's NCAA Sweet 16, there were like at least 4 different teams on the SI magazine cover, depending on where your address is in the country.

EA could pick maybe 8 top NFL players from different areas of the country and send out the different game covers to stores from the respective areas. All it takes is for a few of those guys to have a good season and BOOM no more curse. It's either that or they're going to start having a hard time getting players to sign that contract... Ah nevermind money is money. But at least us fantasy owners could put it out of our minds!
