I think Calvin Johnson's record breaking season finally puts the nails in the coffin of the Madden Curse. Or it just never existed in the first place, and all those cover boy slump seasons were just a huge coincidence.

Though every starting WR on the Lions are on IR. Plus our secondary is putting ads in the newspaper looking for cornerbacks and safetys. The curse works in mysterious ways.

No such thing. Calvin is a beast. Fitzgerald is a beast. What makes me not want to take a player is his value not if hes on the cover of a video game.

They put players on the cover who typically played at their peak the prior year. With that said, its highly unprobable for the madden cover players to repeat what their performance the following year. This reason is why people believe in the madden curse.

See the words in bold, there are exceptions.

The Madden team made a mistake by putting Calvin on the cover before his peak.

Will we see the elusive "double curse" next year with Calvin on the cover AGAIN in 2014??

Perhaps the Madden curse can be slow spreading. It got into Fitzgerald's system last year, and took awhile for symptoms to show. Then this year, full on bust mode. He was easily the bust of the year.
