calvin jonhson did not get hurt...wonder if a pats player will ever get on
Not making it to the playoffs must be hurting him.
I can see Gronk making it one year.
he already had his chance maybe if he has another record breaking year
Eventually at some point I'm sure a guy like him will.
Ehh, no curse is big enough to affect "Megatron", so why should any curses affect Gronk?? :rocker:
i would still like to see brady on it..but don't think that will ever happen..hell he didn'y make it on his record breaking year
him or wilfork
Pretty sure Brady has rejected the offer at least once.
For some odd reason the dominant QB's with an exception of Drew Brees (Manning, Brady, Rodgers) normally don't get on the cover.
I guess they like the skill position guys.
what about wilfork? I could see spikes in a few years if he keeps up his pace of play
Like so much in life, I suspect it is all about the money. EA has a license from the NFLPA to use the players' names and numbers and electronic representations, but I bet it has to work out a deal with the cover athlete separately to use their real photo. As much money as EA makes off of Madden, it has no incentive to pay a Brady or a Manning what their likeness is worth.
It's a curse to be a future HOF type WR and having to play for the Lions.
CJ was cursed the moment Detroit selected him
Brady has already been on the cover of a video game....... NFL Gameday 2003
And Guess what....that game came out late 2002 and just happened to be the only year a Brady led team missed the playoffs.
He didn't score a TD for 6 games or something iirc. A little irrelevant now that he has the record though. You could look at the Lions and say they suffered from the Madden curse though, 10-6 last year to 4-12...
It's interesting when you compare the start of Megatron's career to the start of Gronk's career, given the dominance of Megatron, you realise just how unstoppable Gronk has become. Had he not broken his arm, he would have basically obliterated Megatron's first 3 seasons (yes, I know he has Brady throwing to him).
Honestly, I marvel at what Belichick is able to do:
1. Identify talent.
2. Obtain that talent.
3. Put the talent in an environment to perform.
4. Put the talent in a position to execute.
It truly is a thing to behold.
no madden curse for the cover player...but ray Lewis did all the commercials. tore his triceps and is now retiring.

Well, GRONK was in the running to be on the cover this year. IF he was on the cover I'm sure all of us would be screaming that his broken arm was a result of the Madden curse.
Madden Curse might of not gotten to Calvin Johnson, but it did get the Detroit Lions!
Near 2000 yards and only 5 TDs for a giant fast red zone target???? Color me not impressed at all. You would think Megatron could have 'transformed' some of that production into more TDs.
Gronk's first 3 years....... 38 TDs
Minitron's first 3 years ....21 TDs
GronkLock makes Megatron look like a Go-Bot
No serious injuries for Megatron but his team did miss the playoffs by a longshot. And he had the fewest TDs he has ever had.
When does Megatron hit FA and when do the Pats sign him? LOL
