I just watched us lose to the Titans on NFL Replay.

Why couldn't they have put him on the cover LAST year? :(

It seems to be that the QBs that have been on Madden have bad leg injuries when they are the Coverboy...wonder if it'll be a knee, leg, achilles for Young?

Has anybody been on the Madden cover the same year they had a monster season? I remember all they way back when Eddie George was on the cover and that season ended up being the beginning of the end for him. It's been downhill for every Madden cover boy since. I just hope Portis doesn't get put on the next cover after he scores 20 TDs this year.;)

Sometimes, the Madden Curse effect seems really real. But in reality, its a concept that's really been stretched. I mean, Ray Lewis in 2004? What happened to him? And it'd be foolish to think that Shaun Alexanders foot injury had more to do with the Madden Curse than with him getting 390 carries the prior year.

I believe that Vick and McNabb both had injuries unrelated to and coincidental to them being on the cover of Madden. Injuries aren't uncommon in football, so just because twice a guy on a game cover got coincidentally hurt doesn't mean that the cover athlete is cursed.

That said, watch VY stay healthy and improve his passing immesely only to have some fools claim that the Madden Curse struck again because the Titans lost 2 more games than last year...

Some idiot probably will infer that about VY, although I think the Madden curse is strictly related to the health of the individual, not the wins and losses of their team.

This has got to be the dumbest move in EA sports history. Vince Young sucks. I dont care how many games he got credit for winning last year. His true colors came out during the Pro Bowl. What is sad is the defense wasn't even allowed to blitz. Is this is what QB play is comming to? Why dont all the teams just put their RB with the best arm in the backfield, and tell him "if the guy aint open run!"

Here are his 06 stats

Number 26th passer overall Vince Young
Yards 2199
Attempts 357
Completions 184
Touchdowns 12
Interceptions 13
Longest 53
QB Rating 66.7 Thats right a freakin 66.7 QB rating which is 30th best in the league!, but this guy went to the Pro Bowl and now graces the Madden Cover. What in the hell were they thinking.

KLHJ2 04-18-2007 03:17 AM

Re: Vince Young Madden 2008 Cover
 
Next year they should put Deshaun Foster, Ruben Droughns or Corey Dillon on the cover. They grace the bottom of the RB stat board right now! No, you know what? Lets just give It to Calvin Johnson right now! He hasn't played a down in the NFL, but he is the best player comming out of this draft! Thats right he is already better than T.O., Tim Brown, Randy Moss, and the Great one Jerry Rice. All hail Calvin Johnson!

Yeah right! Get th f*** outta here!

It doesn't matter who's on the cover because that's not why people buy the game.
I'm sure they could slap a picture of Saddam tackling Richard Simmons and most of us would still go out and buy it ASAP.

Eddie George is considered to be the exception to the curse. He had a bigger year when he was on the cover vs. the year before.

Here's an article that outlines the Madden curse:

Who cares about the Pro Bowl?

Last time I checked the season is what matters, and he played pretty damn well when it mattered.

Actually, Peyton Manning was their first choice, but they couldn't fit his head onto the cover. Sigh.

Yeah, well Travis Henry will never be on the Madden cover.

Young never tripped or pulled a Romo trying to hand the ball to Henry, so we could've used some help from the "Curse" in that department!

Do you remember (I think it was) Naked Gun where he's looking a girl from down to up and it takes like one or two minutes of film to actually look all the way up her legs. That's how I feel when I look at his forehead.

Obviously you weren't paying attention. If scrambling with the ball because you suck as a passer is good QB play, Then Put CP at QB and let him do the same thing as Vince Young.

What do you mean it didn't matter? It didn't matter to you. It sure as hell mattered to those players who took the field to compete against each other. Otherwise why show up? Every player can claim all he wants to that "it was just for fun". I dont know anyone who has fun getting their ass whooped, exhibition or not! It sure as hell mattered to Sean Taylor when he laid out that punter.

P.S. Vince Young is still garbage!

You're really comparing the Pro Bowl to an actual game? They're all just having fun out there. Even Sean Taylor. Lucky for us, his idea of fun is leveling opponents.

Vince Young has a ways to go, but he's not garbage. And it's the freaking cover of a video game! Is it really worth getting all worked up over?

Not really angry about it, I just gotta live up to my name. Besides the only way you get people to repond is to push their buttons and get them all worked up.

I am still not sold on Vince Young though. Hell of an athlete, but a terrible QB.

I absolutely agree. I'm surprised there are people here that beleive that. I said that before and got nothing but negative responses. He's not even close to a good qb. Maybe some day he will, but he needs to learn how to win with his arm and his head. We all know about his legs, but those should be used as a compliment to other attributes.

My sentiments exactly. Personally I don't care who they put on the damn cover. But, you would expect to at least see either the league MVP or sombody that had an incredible year or career. But a rookie QB that was at the bottom of the league statistically makes no sense.

With all of that said, I am still going to buy the game. I will just scan a picture of Clinton Portis and insert it in the case where Vince Young was.

With the "curse" comments going on, why don't they put something else on the cover? Especially when you have to resort to Vince Young!!! Might as well put Matt Lienart on the cover.

Personally, I don't believe in curses. Putting something other than a player on the cover would prevent the player endorsements from selling the game. Not like they need that anyway, it's Madden for crying out loud.
A picture of a football would do just fine.

EA Sports is desperate. They put Vince on the cover, because they couldn't get anyone better. Surely you guys can see that.

That's my point...Madden has created a name for itself without the person on the front.
Put a picture of the Superbowl winner's stadium or something. Or how about putting the mug of Madden on there.
