    It just hit me now, maybe the Madden Curse isn't a curse. I know one or two guys never got injured but just had mental/personal issues afterwards. For the most part though I'm starting to think teams that participated in the bounty systemsuch as the Saints perhaps placed their biggest targets on the Madden cover athletes. Thoughts?

    LOL. ;)

    No. There is no relation with the Saints bounties and the Madden curse. The Madden 'curse' goes way beyond the bounderies of the N.Orleans Saints.

    I can't tell if you are being serious or sarcastic though.

    Although appearing on the Madden cover could give other players that extra incentive to work that much more or hit you that much harder, I don't think it matters. Plus I don't recall any of the recent cover athlete's injuries being dirty hits.

    Yeah,once the Saints defense saw that Drew Brees was going to be on the cover of Madden 11 in the spring of 2010,they went all out in training camp to put thier own QB on IR :rolleyes:

    Was Brees hurt recently? Or are you being sarcastic? My meter is way off, due to this thread ;) I can't tell if anyone is serious or not..

    Regardless, I couldn't imagine to begin to see any kind of relationship to the Saints bounty stuff, and the curse of a video game cover. I wouldn't even think that the Saints played many of the players over the yrs, due to scheduling etc.

    The most recent examples that come to mind are Peyton Hillis and Troy Palomalu, and I don't even think N.Orleans played them that yr..
