he only missed the final game of the season.I guess you are right. It was just a bit delayed. 2004 season is 2005 Madden.

Ray didn't break the curse. He was injured that year and even though he was playing with it, had a poor year. It mightve been the worst year of his career.

Call me crazy, but I believe in the madden curse. Im a superstitious guy, and I know for damn sure I wouldn't want any Giants on the cover.

Chris Johnson will be on Madden 2011. :D

I want to say its bs...because players rarely go through an nfl season healthy...but the coincidences are mind bottleling.

Yeah, I just remember someone using that phrase mad long ago in a thread on here so I used it.

He played in 15 games and was a first team all pro. Ray Lewis broke the "madden curse". Sorry.

It was the worst season of his career up until that point. He did play injured all year and he certainly didn't deserve to be a 1st team all pro.

Eddie George broke the madden curse too.

Curses abound!

I think it has more to do with the fact guys usually have a less than stellar year after the type of year that usually gets them on Madden. Probably has more to do with fatigue than anything else. It is pretty funny at this point though.

Please don't put Adrian Peterson and/ or Percy Harvin on the cover.

I think the Colts should be on the cover next year...the whole team.

There's only one man that can break the curse. Jordy Nelson but let's not take that risk.

He'll suffer for our sins.

But we'll all be better off when its all said and done. I say we make it happen.

I am telling you, Chris Johnson will be the person on Madden 2011. That's my prediction.

Yeah, that's a good guess.

My prediction is DeSean Jackson.

Put JaMarcus on the cover, maybe it will have the opposite effect

NOOOOOO!!! He'll get broken in half.

Ya I was thinking about Brees and Desean as well, but CJ is breaking records and I can see him accepting it.

Tom Brady has refused multiple times for this reason.

I say put someone who is already on the IR on the cover, that way the curse is broken.

Eddie George and Ray Lewis already broke it.

Eddies career went downhill the year after though. I belive in the curse.

But it didn't happen the year he was on the cover therefore curse = broken, what's hard about this?

A curse can't be broken if it was complete ******** from the beginning.

Daunte Culpepper decided to do some voodoo **** after he got injured when he was on the cover and every other cover boy shall suffer because of evil Culpepper.

Just a little weird that everyone gets broken after a short time of being on the cover.
