Re: Madden 2007 cover athlete!

This is just a rumor. There was a thread over at ES about it too. Basically there has been some promotional advertisements for it with Portis on the cover, but also some with Steve Smith & others. They did the same thing last year with Tom Brady during the pre-order times, then officially announced it to be D. McNabb later. I'd be very surprised if CP is actually the cover.

Re: Madden 2007 cover athlete!

I couldn't believe in the curse but year after year... WTF the eagles sucked after the post superbowl thing and mcnabb on the cover. I like the respect but i don't like the curse

Its just a rumor any way. When was the last time we were given any respect

I would prefer he not be on the cover simply because of the dreaded curse. Has anyone actually had a good or healthy season when on the cover?
Ray Lewis had a pretty decent season, but that's about it. It pretty much started the end of the good part of Eddie George's career. Culpepper was terrible. Faulk got hurt. Vick broke his leg. Then, Ray had a decent season, but he got hurt at the end of the year and they missed the playoffs. Most recently, there was Donovan...we all know how that turned out.

Re: Madden 2007 cover athlete!

I thought they might go with Steve Smith, alexander, or palmer so I know I'm really suprised with the pick of Portis if it winds up being true, but it also makes a bit of sense because of how much the media was talking about him the last month and a half of the league because of his media day personas.

Re: Madden 2007 cover athlete!

I vote for CP on the cover, but only as Southeast Jerome!!! (He's already dead anyway, right?)

its a mock up, they have them with 5-10 players and i guess use focus groups to figure out who should be there. Brady should have been the 2006 cover guy. Alexander should probably make the 2007 cover, but lots of people hate him because of how soft he is.

Re: Madden 2007 cover athlete!

I think they should go back to using Madden's fat head on the cover. Maybe kids will look at it and decide to play outside instead of sitting in front of the Playstation all day and turning in that lard-ass; then it will be easier for the rest of us to get the game when it first comes out!

Re: Madden 2007 cover athlete!

I honestly don't believe in the "Madden Curse". Everything that happened to these guys happen to other guys all of the time. Now IF they pick Clinton or whoever they pick end up getting injured in a freak Final Destination way then and only then will I believe in it. Marshall Faulk got hurt, he plays on astroturf and he's a running back it happens. Daunte had a bad season, I mean it's not like he had the All Madden team or something, plus he wasn't actually Joe Montana anyway. Vick, how many times did you think he would get hurt when he's taken down on his runs ? Ray Lewis, he was okay until the end of the season, he was gettin old too so he may twist an ankle or two ? Donovan, that was no curse, that team was doomed the second T.O. signed with them. That was no curse my friends, just bad management.

I don't care who is on the cover as long as it isn't a Cowboy, it would be hard to look at my game after that.

Re: Madden 2007 cover athlete!

i would hope that he actually isn't on the cover. Honestly, i don't ever want to see a redskin on the cover, just out of fear of the madden curse. Look what it did to mcnabb last year.

Re: Madden 2007 cover athlete!

what about jon jansen in 2004 or culpepper tanking and shredding his leg last year? Or C palmer, or D Brees? horrible injuries happen to great/elite players all the time

out of the 10-15 best QBs last year, 4 had terrible injuries... those are REALLY bad odds for anyone, not just the guy on the cover.
