Ok.. I think its many years running that the person who ends up on the cover of Madden ends up getting hurt or doing poorly. Madden 2007 - Shaun Alexander - missed 6 games and part of 2 more. Madden 2006 - Donovan McNabb - Missed 7 games due to injury Madden 2005 - Ray Lewis - Missed the last game of 2005 and Missed 10 games in 2005 Madden 2004 - Michael Vick - Vick missed 11 games Madden 2003 - Marshall Faulk - Missed 2 games due to injury first season with more than 10 games but under 1000 yards with the Rams Madden 2002 - Duante Culpepper - missed 5 games due to injury. Madden 2001 - Eddie George - The ONLY player to don the Madden cover and NOT get injured. Madden 2000 - Dorsey Levens - missed 2 games to injury and Packers go 8-8 Who is going to be on the cover of Madden and suffer the "curse"?
