Icon5 "Maddden curse" real?

I have noticed that for some reason people on here still talk about the "Madden curse" and they don't want their teams players to be on it, I ask you is there really a "curse"?

Look back at the covers since 2001 Eddie George did not get injured(although he did have his worst season with the Titans that year.

2002: Culpepper was not injured, he did have one of his worst seasons in the NFL also...

2003: Marshall Faulk got injured and his production went down every season until he retired, that is simply a case of a player getting older....for the most part....

2004: Vick was injured until week 11 and had a passing completion percentage of 50%, 585 yards, 4 TDs and 3 Ints....but was Vick but he never really was a very good passer as we all know.....

2005: Ray Lewis was injured for all of that seasons games except 6 in which he got 46 tackles and a sack, it was the only season in his career that he didn't make the pro bowl...

2006: We all know about McNabb's injury...

2007: Shaun Alexander went from being the league MVP to getting injured and never recovered...IMO another case of a player getting old...

2008: I think we all remember what happened to Young...

2009: Fave never really was any worse or never really got injured...

So I ask you is the "Madden curse" really a "curse" at all? Or just a silly superstition made popular because a few players got hurt?

IMO if anything it doesn't "curse" the players to get hurt but "curses" them to play bad with the exception of a few...

No. Football is a rough sport, it is a coincidence. Then again wasn't Kurt Warner on the cover of Madden '02, and Kevin Everett on the cover of Madden '08? Oh, wait, no, its a rough game!!!
