Madden Curse officially dead!

15 posts in this topic

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.

the only ones cursed are those who had to play against his owners in their FFL championships.

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.

Not dead, just doesn't affect WR. See Larry Fitz that year.

Or it's like Final Destination for wideouts.

Not buying it.

He'd have about 18 TDs if he wasn't on that damn cover.

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.

The curse this year was actually buying the game. They got rid of Franchise Mode. Worst curse ever!

Why do they even bother making Madden games any more that is ridiculous?
