    But what if the game developers already knew last fall that they wanted Brett for the cover... then he just now retires!!!? I say the curse lives on my friends! :)

    ^^ Agreed. The curse is so powerful It caused Favre to retire before the season even started.

    I'm praying Favre doesn't get run over by his own tractor.

    Ohhhh The curse will be there.

    Brett's lawn mower is going to blow a gasket, His chain saw will seize up, the beavers in his pond will produce the largest off spring of baby beavers in years for him to deal with, and Deanna is going to spill bleach on his Wrangler Jeans causing big white blotches all around the knees.

    The Madden Curse goes into retirement.

    The curse of not putting up good numbers will strike.

    I am so glad April fools day is in the past, because even seeing a article like "Madden Curse Strikes: Favre cuts of finger in hedgetrimmer" as a joke would have me panicking.

    What the hell? Picking Favre is part of keeping the curse going. Each of those players followed up the cover with a terrible year. Favre is about to have his worst statistical year since he was drafted -- nothing.

    There's no question the curse lives on! Retirement is the ultimate proof.

    I hope Favre ends the curse causing the next person on the cover to have the curse x2. AP would be nice :))))

    Is there a Madden "curse?"

    No. Odds of getting injured in the NFL are very high. I've seen articles that said that over 65% of former football players are considered "legally crippled" sometime in their lives. That number is very high, and scary.

    Walter Payton, my favorite non-Packer, died from football related injuries. We've all seen some scary hits and players lying on the ground motionless, which nobody likes to see. Last year, when AP went down, I got really worried. Also last year, weren't there 2 special teamers who got serious neck injuries and we worried about them being permanently paralyzed?

    It's coincidental. Football is not tiddlywinks. It's a deadly game where people get hurt.

    Didn't Walter Payton die because his liver sucked?

    Yeah, dude, you are wrong, Payton died from primary sclerosing cholangitis, a rare liver disease that has nothing to do with football...or any injury you could sustain from it.
