Also while we're breaking out the tin-foil hats: the Madden Curse* hits names and not players. This year - Sean Payton, Peyton Hillis, Peyton Manning.

Due to this the following players should take next season off if Cam wins.

  1. Cameron Bradfield
  2. Cameron Graham
  3. Cameron Heyward
  4. Cameron Jordan
  5. Cameron Morrah
  6. Cam Newton
  7. Cameron Sheffield
  8. Cam Thomas
  9. Cameron Wake

Actually why not be super safe. The NFL should play with only white guys, no quarterbacks, noone from Auburn, noone from Georgia, and noone who eats Fig Newtons.

Safety first guys.

*Not an actual curse. No cursing realized.

You have to wonder how much can be "thought of as the curse"- or associated with the fact that EVERY football player in the NFL knows you are on the cover and might just want to "be that guy"............ It dont know if it is a curse, or just a BIG BULLSEYE......my .02

Hillis also randomly decided that he wanted to be a Navy Seal.

I feel like he hasn't thought this through. Think of the implications of the Madden curse on a soldier. I'd like to suggest a sales position at Yankee Candle instead.

The curse actually started when he was traded to Cleveland.

So Prince did some purple voodoo on Madden?

Eta: Come to think of it, why did the curse start?

The Red Sox sold Ruth.

The Cubs pissed off a guy with a goat.

Cassandra shot Apollo down.

Ham saw his dad's package.

What's the reason behind this "curse"?

Dont forget, according to the criteria for being cursed by the Madden cover two things have to happen:

1.) You have to be a Super Star your previous NFL season and win the cover.

2.) You have to fall short of winning the Super Bowl.

With those two criteria, it is mathematically impossible to ever get someone not cursed on the cover if you are using the sampling size of the last 10 years. Maybe for Madden 2005 if they would have put Brady on the cover but they didn't put white QB's on the cover back then, it wasn't exactly a QB league until around 2006 (which is the year for Madden 07). So yeah, not a single player would have been able to escape the curse no matter who they put on the cover from available players they could have picked.

You can see this affect when they say that Larry Fitz and Drew Brees failed to escape the curse.
