    On Sportscenter.

    On Mike and Mike this morning, they said one of these four will get chosen:

    Shaun Alexander
    Ben Roethlisberger
    LaDainian Tomlinson
    Hines Ward

    The Madden cover curse will give its unlucky victim a guaranteed injury. Remember Vick's broken leg (Madden 2004)? McNabb's injury last year (Madden 2006)? Ray Lewis' belated I.R. vist last year (Madden 2005)? How about Marshall Faulk in 2002 (Madden 2003)?

    The Sr. Director of Athlete and Talent Relations just said it was "a key running back" on ESPNews.

    Brilliant pic, pats1! You should send it into profootballtalk, they'll put it up.

    Wow...surprising that they went with a Seattle Seahawk.

    Don't forget Culpepper's season ending knee injury for Madden 2002, and Eddie George the year before (no major injuries, but lots of minor ones that resulted in his worse season to date at that time)

    Do superbowl losers get priority on Madden covers?

    This year Alexander, last year McNabb.

    Marshall Faulk the year after we beat the Rams.

    Eddie George? I think he was two years after the Rams beat the Titans.

    Ray Lewis and Michael Vick on the cover? No reason, unless Madden has a soft spot for high visibility players whose rep far exceeds their accomplishments (as long as you exccde self-promotion from the list of Lewis's accomplishments)
