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.

So it seems like Larry Fitzgerald has already broken it. No worries.

This house, is clean.

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.

again, just for the NFC South alone, there would not have been a single player in all 4 teams that had a chance of making the cover for 2012 that would not have been deemed "effected" by the curse. Name one player. You morons on here would be claiming Drew Brees was cursed even if he got it two times in a row because of Bountygate so he doesnt even apply. I REPEAT, BY THIS FORUMS LOGIC, EVERY PLAYER EITHER WASNT GOOD ENOUGH TO BE ON THE COVER OR WOULD HAVE BEEN DEEMED CURSED BY THE COVER HAD THEY BEEN ON THE 2012 COVER. Think about it, think of one player in the NFC South that was good enough in the 2010 season to have had a shot at the cover (Jordan Gross doesn't count because he never had a chance) and now that the 2011 season is over, tell me which of those players you're thinking about would have been deemed not affected by the curse?

Josh Freeman? Hell no. Madden curse, ohhh wait... he wasnt on the cover
LeGarrett Blount? Cursed....he wasn't on the cover...
Drew Brees? Hell no. Bountygate cursed.... oh waiitt... he wasn't on the cover...
Steve Smith? Wasn't good enough in 2010 to be considered for cover.
Matt Ryan? Hell no. Terrible season would have been deemed cursed, he just had to be on the cover.
Roddy White? Drops... cursed. He wasn't on the cover...
Jon Beason? Cursed. He wasn't on the cover...

Only player in the entire NFL that would have been eligible and deemed semi not cursed is Aaron Rodgers and I bet everyone would be saying he was cursed because he lost to the 9-7 Giants.

After reading this thread I hope he gets the cover just because the reaction from you simple minded people would be priceless. And I mean no offense by that, but if you believe in curses in any capacity whatsoever, at least be honest with yourself that you are a simple minded ninny.

I thought I would post this here to remind you guys that your QB has become one of the benchmarks other rookie QBs are being measured up against. I hope this only encourages you to support him more and not concern yourselves over him ending up on a game box-cover and it's jinx.

“Luck was not a special passer based on film study,” wrote Cosell. “He is not the same kind of arm talent as Matthew Stafford or Cam Newton. … Luck was an economical player who was at his best as a timing and rhythm, short to intermediate passer.”

It's from a PFT article on RGIII..here's the link: http://profootballta...passer-to-luck/
