    I just heard that Shawn Alexander of the Seahawks wil be out indefinately with a broken foot,probably a month and a half at least..AH The Madden Curse and Super Bowl Runner-up curse continue...They will be hard pressed to run without him...kind of sad,Shawn seems like a modest and nice guy considering his enormous talent-He would have made a great Patriot

    If SEA loses a few more games, then that will improve the PATS draft position with SEA #1 pick for next year.

    Actually I've heard from more than one place that he's somewhat of an egotistical jerk.

    But this curse stuff is getting weird, and pretty much undeniable.

    Last year the Eagles got a double whammy too because Donovan McNabb was on the cover and they lost the Superbowl. (In case any of ya'll forgot McNabb got hurt and the Eagles finished last in the division.

    "Shaun Alexander will miss at least a few weeks with a "cracked foot."
    Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren confirmed the injury Monday. ESPN's John Clayton says Alexander could miss a month. Maurice Morris takes over as Seattle's top running back. Seattle has a well-timed Week 5 bye, but fantasy owners should expect to be without Alexander for at least a few weeks."

    Was this the same foot that he already hurt and made him questionable for the game yesterday?

    Heard it hot off the presses at Sirius Radio..Love that NFL station.....Looks like our former boy Deion is gonna have to make a bigger impression and quicker than he thought...Get ready for 20+ throws a game Deion and better catch at least 18 of em or those fans who lost a #1 pick will lynch ya...HEEHEHEHEH.. Without Shawn our #1 pick from them just went up a few pegs,I simply don't think Matt Hasselbeck can sling the ball 40 times a game and be successful..he is not that good IMO

    I hope so but I think Alexander (and the entire running game) is somewhat a product of Seattle's great offensive line. But they lost Steve Hutchinson who was a big part of that.

    Oh well, it looks like the first rounder just got a little better. I bet a lot of fantasy owners are getting ready to jump off thier closest bridge.

    I agree but if he comes back for the stretch run and the Seahawks make the Super Bowl, then it doesn't matter.

    This obsession with Seattle's first rounder has got to stop. The pick will be somewhere between 20-32, most likely somewhere between 26-32. A nice little bonus, but nothing earth-shattering and definitely not worth taking the slightest pleasure from a guy getting hurt. Let's worry about the pick when the draft rolls around.

    Hopefully Chicago's defense can start Seattle on a losing streak. No one has to respect their run now.

    Forgive me but I'm hoping that the lack of a running game results in a big hit on Hasselbeck which knocks him out for the season. No permanent injury of course. I hate The Twig and I want to see his team struggle while our pick gets better.

    The difference between 20 and 32 is HUGE and well worth watching.

    Go Bears.

    It does not matter, if we dont play any better we will still have a higher draft pick than the sea hags....

    Where our pick is is irrelevant. Even if we had the #1 pick we would still want the Seattle pick to be as high as possible.

    Yessir!

    btw, Patriots64 ... yesterday (and many a Sunday before), Hasselbeck showed himself to be an excellent QB. Sober up.

    This is contemptibly crass ... and hard to "forgive".
    I don't care much for Twig any more, either ...
    and i admit to enjoying anything that lowers Seattle's standings in the league ...
    and consequently raises their standing in the draft.

    But true fans
    want all the best players
    playing all the time ...
    even against their own teams.

    I'm not one that normally believes in curses, but this Madden cover curse is some crazy coincidence. Here's hoping Brady never ends up on the cover and Pay-me-aton ends up on multiple covers :eat3:
