    Yeah, I was thinking with the so called Madden curse do we really want to do this?

    Aaron Rodgers and Charles Woodson have each been on the cover of Sports Illustrated once this year during football season. If we weren't cursed by that, we won't be cursed by this.

    Tebow has no business in this tourney. Woodhead is a better candidate.

    Carlos Dunlap and "The 12th Man" were the biggest WTF options

    If there is no football this year then the Madden curse will be blamed for it.
    Damned if you do, damned if you don't kind of thing.

    If Aaron Rodgers doesn't win this (heck, if ANY Packers player or organization doesn't win ANY kind of poll), I will lose faith in Packer nation.

    Cmon people, let's prove we're the most extensive and rabid fanbase.

    Actually vote for the 12th man. It will piss off the former NFLPA as no one will get paid an endorsement deal out of it. It will also look incredibly stupid and they would deserve that for putting it on the list.

    If there's no season, there's no curse right?

    Tebow was the #1 player in the NFL in jersey sales.
    Who else for Denver should have been on there? Kyle Orton?

    Anyway, I believe in the jinx so I want to see someone else on the cover.

    Yeah I'll be voting. Against Rodgers in order to save him.

    Can't they just put 75 different players on there in a collage or something?

    Anyone remember the last time they tried to put a packer on the cover?

    Champ Bailey would be the only other guy who could've gotten it and he's past his prime.

    Yes. 2009 they put a "packer" on the cover. They later changed the jersey, though.

    the Madden Curse is something I really am starting to doubt...

    Drew Brees is a great example. It's so easy to blame his 20+ interceptions on the curse. But looking at stats, Brees got sacked 25 times, his most sacks in a Saints uniform. If you look at the Saints roster from last season and then this season, you see they were dumb enough to cut half of their O-line that got them to the Super Bowl, and Brees is not that great under pressure, and most of his problems this season was that, no protection when he needed it the most.

    The curse also is the blame for Barry Sanders retiring after his small picture was on the cover of one of the games. Wrong again...Barry Sanders would have retired no matter what even if he wasn't on the cover of the game. Do some research about Ford and the Lions management and you get the picture. Barry Sanders was 'tired' of getting patted on the back loss after loss because the Lions were more worried about him breaking Payton's records than building a team around him.

    Anyone remember that RB for the 'Niners named Hearst? His career was injury and fumble riddled after he was on the cover, but people forget he was OLD. He had already been playing 3-4 years before he went to SF. Average career for a running back is five years. When the Niners lost Steve Young, they had little to no offensive line, when they were running the ball every down over working their old work horse Hearst. Actually they were lucky he lasted as long as he did after Young went down, cause their O-line was terrible with Garcia under center.

    Ray Lewis actually had a good season after he was on the cover. I don't see how that one is argued. Can't record an interception every season as a linebacker.

    Hell, I think Favre is a good example. Bad season the year he was on the cover, yet he had that out standing the year in Minnesota. If he was truly cursed he should have had bad stats in his first year with the Vikes.

    The problem is, when they get on the cover, people think they are going to out do the career season that landed them on the cover, and most the time they can't. Drew Brees had the best passing records a quarterback could dream about in 2009, and he did it with average class C receivers. There is NO WAY in hell a quarterback throwing the ball 400 times is going to hit 70.6% completion percentage or better every year. With all the picks last season, he still had 68.3% percentage rate. Not many (including Peyton Manning) can do that with all the talent around them, and Brees has some of the worst pass dropping average receivers I've had to watch for an elite team..

    This is what all the experts ignore about the Madden cover, cause they want to use the curse as a simple excuse of the problem, but if Favre could go from his bad year in NY to a career year the next season, then the curse is a joke.

    It's not a lifetime curse. It's just a one year curse.

    Favre was cursed for that one year in NY when he was on the cover, and then the curse was passed to Fitzgerald and Polamalu (I think Polamalu got hurt that year).

    I blame Madden for the year I took Mike Vick in a way-too-early fantasy football draft and he busted his leg in a preseason game.
