The Madden curse, if there is one, will apply to one of two high-profile NFC players this year.
Packers fans surely are rejoicing, given that quarterback Aaron Rodgers once again has escaped the injuries, struggles, and/or outright goofy behavior that occurs after a player lands on the cover of the most popular (in large part because it’s the only) NFL-licensed console video game.
So is there anything to the Madden curse? As former Ravens coach Brian Billick told PFT Live last week, “I’m not superstitious, but I don’t want my star player anywhere near that thing.”
Voting continues until next Wednesday. Panthers fans, vote for Johnson. Lions fans, vote for Newton.
