Now that, my friends, is a Madden Curse!

Who says life doesn't imitate art?

You've seen the Madden 2006 commercial where Dallas Clark is blown up by two Philadelphia Eagles defenders, right? Apparently, Clark was none too pleased about it, according to the Indianapolis Star: "'Everyone has told me about it,' said Clark. 'I haven't seen the commercial, but I'm upset about it. It makes me look like a punk.' On the commercial, Clark runs a crossing route and is wrapped up by Eagles safety Brian Dawkins. As he spins around, he's whacked by defensive end Darren Howard. For emphasis, the play is shown a couple of times. 'Everyone is talking about my face and my grunting and the noises I make,' Clark said. 'It sounds like I'm dying. I want to know why the people picked me. If they come and ask me, "Hey, we're going to make you look bad, is that OK?" (but) they didn't ask me.'"

To make matters (much) worse, last Sunday night Clark's Colts were facing (who else?) the Eagles, and just before halftime, Philly SS Sean Considine tackled Clark on a short pass, whereupon Clark's knee was caught awkwardly against the turf, and he needed to be helped from the field. The initial diagnosis was a sprained MCL in Clark's right knee, but on Tuesday, the Associated Press speculated that Clark may actually have torn his ACL, which would put him out for the year.

Too bad those Madden commercials didn't work so well for Culpepper. How many times did we see C-Pep get his roll on? :-B
