Can the player elected to grace the cover of the Madden video game from EA Sports shake the Madden Curse?
The players who get on the cover have a hard time getting through the year. Some are worse than others but last years cover boy, Peyton Hillis, took down two other Peyton’s so it seems like the curse is getting worse.
Detroit Lions WR Calvin “Megatron” Johnson, owner of one of the best nicknames in the league, just signed a huge contract with Detroit to help add to the jinx of beating out Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton for the fan voted Madden 12 cover.
Johnson signed an eight-year deal worth up to $132 million last month. Wow. Nothing adds to the drama of the curse than news like that.
Hopefully, Megatron can show us all that the curse doesn’t exist. Or at least break the curse that does even though some believe it’s all in the fans heads.
