For the second year in a row, Electronic Arts has put the Madden Curse in the fans’ hands. There are some interesting choices, though the most interesting has to be Tim Tebow. The Denver Broncos quarterback, whose pose became the phenomena known as “Tebowing,” is currently on the trading block thanks to one Peyton Manning.
Here’s hoping Tebow wins and takes the cover curse with him. Brandon Lloyd, a member of the New England Patriots, started the fan vote as a member of the St. Louis Rams. So, fret not, Rams fans. You’re safe this year, though I wish you the worst for getting so much out of the Robert Griffin III deal. You, too, Redskins for giving it to them.
Otherwise, it’s an underwhelming roster with only a handful of superstars. Last year’s cover athlete, Peyton Hillis, certainly lived up to the curse. Hillis subsequently switched teams, joining the Kansas City Chiefs at the start of free agency this year.
Interested in supporting your team? Got a problem with Tim Tebow’s religious exposure? Want to see a hated rival have a career ruined (Palomalu…)?
