    ...although it's a REGIONAL cover. So... is that still a FULL jinx, or a 1/4 jinx? We need a ruling.

    Hopefully it's just a 1/4 jinx, but does that mean a slow first quarter again?

    So far I've also seen versions with Roethlisberger, Brees and Rodgers; wonder how many of these they do?

    By the way, in doing a brief search on this, I found that, in this issue, Peter King picks the Pats over the Saints. Though maybe his picks are regional too? :D

    Rodgers, Brees, and Roethlisberger get 1/4 of the curse too. 49ers and Ravens Super Bowl it is!

    I've did a quick search and found Rodgers and Ben, not sure of any more.

    What is this JINX you speak of? Just look what the SI cover did for this guy's career.

    There is a thread on the saints board claiming peter king picks the saints overthe pats in the sb. Must be a regional thing.

    I have an SI subscription, which allows me to get it on my iPad, meaning I dont have to wait for them to be sent to me!

    But in mine it says Saints over Patriots!

    Also, the Brady article is really good!

    I bet the story I linked to has it wrong. If you look at the covers I posted earlier, the NO one has extra type saying "It's New Orleans."

    Also, I noticed yesterday that AR, DB and BR all have labels with their name and team, but TFB doesn't!

    The only reason I can think of is the text about the TFB story!

    I'll be the first to admit that I don't like our chances in a matchup with the Saints.

    Wrong week to be a jinx for Brady. He and Rodgers get a jinx-bye. Big Ben and Drew Brees are screwed.

    Now that's funny! The judges have awarded you with a perfect 10 on the sarcasm scale and a 9.5 on the cynicism scale.

    Out here it would be either Tebow or Alex Smith I would guess. But they don't have a west coast one.

    Only because Troy was on it aswell!

    And Drew Brees wasn't affected last season, they just lost to Seattle in the playoffs!

    They ain't gotta tell us that's Tom Brady for the New England Patriots, everybody already knows. TFB needs no introduction.

    Can't say that for the other 3.

    Brees was said to been suffering from a knee injury.

    I bought the iPad version of this edition; pretty good (has all four covers) with a not great but still good story on Brady hanging in there at Michigan. (Of course. TFB himself didn't talk to SI for the story). This bit caught my eye:

    Yikes.

    I'm wondering when this might have been. I'm guessing post-season after 2007, between AFCCG and SB42.

    Out of principle, this thread gets one star, because it used the J word in the subject line. If they lose, it is the OP's fault. :mad:
