I know, I know, you might think that I am crazy for saying this. But I firmly believe that The Madden Curse is real and I HAVE PROOF! Here are the stats of the last few Madden Cover players and the failing seasons that they have had.
2011: New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Had a good year, but the Saints were beat by the Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs.
2010: Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu and

Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints continued to lead his team in the right direction on Sunday. In Week 7, Brees carried his team to a big win over their division rival, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brees began with a monster first half, and was able to close it out in the second.
Brees finished with 377 passing yards, 4 touchdowns and one interception. His pinpoint passing once again...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By GUERRY SMITH Associated Press Drew Brees believes the Saints' offense is close to where it needs to be.
Even without injured Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham, the Saints had five touchdowns in a six-possession span at Tampa Bay in a 35-28 win.
''Definitely you feel that no matter what play is called, we're going to make it work...
Andrew Juge of the Saints Nation stops by to discuss the Saints win in Tampa. He explains how the offense finally started to click by using great pass protection, the long ball, and Joe Morgan's super powers. He also thinks the running game is close to breaking out.
Ralph and Andrew then discuss the defense and they want just want one thing from it; To stop being the worst...
WHAT DID HE SAY?
Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III has proved to be a very mature, highly savvy young man that belies his age and experience, both on the field and off of it. But if he’s anything like most people — which is arguable — RG3 probably cringed after recently taking part in an interview with [...]
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Pittsburgh Steelers have ruled out safety Troy Polamalu and tackle Marcus Gilbert for this week’s game against the Redskins. Polamalu is still recovering from … Continue reading »
Not to be outdone by his quarterback counterparts, Titans RB Chris Johnson set a record in Week 7, becoming the only player in NFL history with four touchdowns of at least 80 yards.
The last time Peyton Manning and Drew Brees met - in Super Bowl XLIV - the game ended with Brees and the New Orleans Saints raising the Lombardi Trophy.
Manning will be looking for a bit of revenge Sunday night as the Denver Broncos host the Saints, who play their first game under interim coach Joe Vitt.
A lot has changed since that matchup in February 2010. Of course, Manning...

BUCS (6.5) AT VIKINGS:
Tampa's defense got exposed by the Saints, but so have a lot of teams by Drew Brees. The task won't be as difficult this week against a Vikings' offense that didn't do much in a so-so win over the short-handed Cardinals. The crowd in Minny...
Saints receiver Joe Morgan said he was over his mini-scare from Sunday that sent him to a Tampa-area hospital for observations. Morgan injured his chest during the third quarter of the Saints' 35-28 victory over Tampa Bay when he leaped to catch a deep Drew Brees pass before for colliding with a pair of Buccaneer defenders.
Like Saints interim coach Aaron Kromer said following...
When it comes to the NFL's most liked players, Troy Polamalu is head and shoulders above the rest.
Whether it's the commercials, the Super Bowl rings or the fact that Polamalu goes full throttle on every play, football fans have taken a real liking to the Steelers' Pro Bowl safety.
Ndamukong Suh, on the other hand, likely won't be receiving many...
Last week: 16 (+1) Record: 3-3 Whether or not the Steelers can make the playoffs really depends on when Troy Polamalu gets back. Their win last week was impressive, until you consider that the Bengals are very good. Without him, they’re a pretty average team overall, but with him, they can definitely make the playoffs. [...]
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Minnesota VikingsTampa Bay: The Buccaneers come off a heartbreaking loss to the New Orleans Saints, dropping them to 2-4. They led the Saints in the first half, but then Drew Brees brought his team storming back to take the lead. Josh Freeman showed some mettle, going toe to toe and punch for punch with Brees, only to essentially run out of time and real...

Safety Troy Polamalu (calf) and tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) have long been ruled out for Sunday and did not work Thursday as expected. Running back Rashard Mendenhall (achilles) also failed...
CJ2K back on track?
Ok. I can only say I feel for you if you had his 195 yard two touchdown performance on your bench.
Regardless as I often like to say Chris Johnson passes the eye test as a fantasy stud this week, but what about the other weeks before? My thought is, it wouldn’t be a bad time to move Johnson in a trade considering he just faced the leagues last ranked run defense...
QB ChampsJosh Freeman: 420 pass yds, 3 pass TDs, 9 rush ydsSince the Bucs’ Week 5 bye, he has 748 yards, 6 TDs, and one pick. Suddenly he’s a borderline fantasy starter.Drew Brees: 377 pass yds, 4 pass TDs, INT, 1 rush yd and Aaron Rodgers: 342 pass yds, 3 pass TDsThe top two QBs in the NFL played like the top two QBs in the NFL on Sunday. Brees is averaging an insane 349.5 yards...
