Are you guys really fuging serious? Seriously? If he gets on that Madden cover he's gonna get hurt, and I hope you feel proud of yourself that you pretty much gave our QB a ticket to be injured. Jesus. You say curses aren't really but almost every got damn player that's been on that cover has been hurt.


I'm going to hire someone to follow you around and put black cats in front of you everywhere you go. And anytime you hold a mirror, I'll pay them to make you drop it. And I'll also hire someone to put a ladder in your room at night so when you get up to pee you won't notice they placed it just so, that you walked under the ladder.

The curse is bullshit. There has been plenty of people who have done just fine the year they were on the cover. When people start the "DOENT VOET FOAR CAM" bullshit it really makes me want to kick them in the throat.

Please tell me who has been "fine" who have been on that cover? Either they are hurt, or have a significant decrease in performance.

I wish we had a way to ask Cam if he wanted us to vote for him or not.

I think he might get money if he wins it, and would like our support.

The decrease in performance is always going to happen. When someone is put on the cover that means they had a stellar year before that is likely unrepeatable.

Madden marketing director:

"Most fans look at the seeding from a straight on-field performance perspective, but what people need to realize is that the winner represents EA Sports, he represents 'Madden NFL 13,' and there are a lot of factors that we consider,"

"Look at what happened with The Golden Calf of Bristol. Before Peyton Manning joined the Broncos, The Golden Calf of Bristol would've been one of the higher seeds in the tournament. But now, there's so much uncertainty surrounding him -- will he be traded, will he be a starting quarterback somewhere else, will he even still be a quarterback -- that now he's a 14-seed."


I don't think the voting matters as much as people think. Good news is that the people in charge seem to see through falling for some BS. Maybe they have learned from the past. I would be exited about Cam being on the cover and will be the first madden game I pay full price for on release, I'd probably pre-order it. It will also be the only madden game worth it's price, soley because of Cam :).

I voted for him as well, I don't believe in no stinking curses. It's just the common sense that if a player has a really great season, the odds of him repeating are low and the risk of injury for any player is high. It's a law of averages.

Jesus! of course there is no mystical powers that make a player fail because of a video game cover but look at the history(thoughtfully posted on page1)...it is fun to discuss and do you not see a strange set of tie ins to that player.

No curse...but thats what its called...and I do not believe in curses or superstitions...but my basketball team does shoot better if i change the channel...#SCIENTIFICFACT

I believe in the curse but poo I've been looking at Other teams players for the last 10 years there is no way in hell I'm gonna let a legitimate chance at having a panther on the cover pass me by. But on another note last yr it seemed like a lot of people played with Carolina online these damn bandwagon people make me sick. I have ran with Carolina since Weinke and I remember the terrible roster updates of 08 with Testerverde and Carr along with the great St. Pierre and the great receiver Drew Carter.

Drew Brees also tore his MCL and threw twice as many interceptions, kinda funny he's back to his regular self and broke even more records, a year after he was on the cover, eh?

2000: Barry Sanders retires a week before the season begins.
2001: Eddie George loses the Divisional Playoffs for the Tennessee Titans
2002: Daunte Culpepper throws 23 interceptions and breaks the record for fumbles in a season. The Vikings went 5-11.
2003: Marshall Faulk never has another 1000-yard rushing season for the rest of his career, and slowly declined in production. Played 21 of 33 games during the 2002 and 2003 seasons.
2004: Michael Vick breaks leg in the preseason, missing the entire season, and the Falcons went 5-11.
2005: Ray Lewis is injured his wrist in Week 15 and had his only season without an interception.
2006: Donovan McNabb tears his ACL, and meniscus, as well as a sports hernia and the Eagles miss the playoffs.
2007: Shaun Alexander sufferes a foot injury and misses six games. Production declines and he is no longer a Seahawk by 2009, and out of the League in 2010.
2008: Vince Young's production declines and he suffers long-term injuries the next season, as well as being benched for off-the-field reasons and never plays 16 games for the Titans.
2009: Brett Favre suffers an arm injury that severely hurts his performance and the Jets are eliminated from playoff contention after starting the first half of the season.
2010: Troy Polomalu sprains his MCL and misses the first four games of the season, and then hurts his PCL and misses even more games afterwards. Larry Fitzgerald is unable to participate in the Pro Bowl due to injury, but has a career year.
2011: Drew Brees plays an entire season, but throws twice as many interceptions, his QB Rating drops 20 points from the Super Bowl-winning season the year previous, and is part of the only team to lose in the playoffs to a team with a losing record; the 7-9 Seahawks. It is later revealed that Drew Brees played 6 weeks with a torn MCL.
2012: Peyton Hillis misses five games due to injury, and re-injures himself in Week 9 of the season. His rushing yards are cut in half after a breakout season the year before and he is cut from the team at the end of the season.


...and no one else in the entire league was hurt.
