Now that the cover man, Calvin Johnson, and the intro man, Ray Lewis, broke Jerry Rice's receiving yards record and won the Superbowl (respectively), is that Madden curse finally debunked?

I mean, it was weird that players would underperform or get injured fairly often after being on the cover, but a curse? I dunno man.

Get Cam on the '15 cover year, just like he wanted last year (because I'm 90% sure AP or Peyton will get it for the '14 game).

You can't debunk something that isn't real.

Doubt it ,people will argue the lions had a worse record and that CJ has quite a bit fewer touchdowns this year.

I hope rg3 gets it because it is real. Then he either underperforms or bangs up his knee again.

CJ avoided the Madden Curse, but it laid waste to his WR teammates! Seriously, Burleson broke his leg, Titus Young went crazy, and Ryan Boryles tore his ACL.

I hope the cover was worth it Megatron!

RG3 will underperform next year and probably bang up his kneww again regardless of any video game cover.

Madden Curse I'm really concerned about is me Buying the game.

Years I bought Madden are:

2001 1-15 year

2004 - Smith breaks his leg in the opener and Davis goes down

2007 - Jake's Elbow gets destroyed after starting out the season 8td's and 1 int in the first 2 1/2 games

and I played a demo that I downloaded to my xbox in 2010

so Yeah you dont want me playing it

The entire premise of the madden curse was that if you failed to approach the ridiculously productive performance you had the season prior or somehow got unlucky and injured (it's football lol) then it was because EA jinxed you by having you on the cover of a glitchy crap game.

"What? Shaun Alexander banged up his knee? I knew it, it's only because of this stupid madden cover he didn't score another 28 TDs this year"

If you believed in the madden curse at some point then you're retarded and eat wall paste

True. Now that I think about it I don't want him to cause then it will give shitty redskin fans I live with an excuse for it. Good looks

Hypothetically if DeAngelo got awarded the cover of Madden after his 2008 performance and everything ended up playing out the way it did, people would be saying that damn madden curse got him, and at this point since he hasn't reached 1000 yards in a season since then people would further go on to say it ruined his career
