Yeah, who would have imagined that a guy coming off a career 'out of nowhere' year would return back to earth?
Curses? Pishposh. Cover boy's of Madden are guys that just had career years. The odds of them not performing to that level is extremely high. Plus the covers have been predominately adorned by injury plagued positions: running backs, and quarterbacks that run
Now, if Fitzgerald and Drew Brees had also succumbed to the curse, we would have something to talk about. It's still be stupid, but he'd be a bit harder to defend against the believers.
