Madden NFL 12 officially cursed Peyton Hillis

November 13th, 2011 by

We at Delta Attack are officially calling Peyton Hillis’ 2011-2012 campaign cursed. With half the season over, Browns RB #40 has just 60 carries for 211 yards and two touchdowns. He has played in four out of the eight games this season and is set to miss today’s game versus the St. Louis Rams.

You may recall Peyton Hillis sat out against the Miami Dolphins with the vile, deadly strep throat virus. Is it a virus? Bacteria? Whatever. Mankind cannot know and scientists only guess for fear their throats would explode were they to come into contact with a sample.

Madden’s NFL 12′s first attack?

Peyton Hillis, whom you may or may not know as the Madden NFL 12 cover athlete, may already be suffering the effects of the dreaded Madden curse. After two games, Peyton Hillis has 44 rushing attempts for 151 rushing yards. This is a whopping 3.43 yards per attempt, a far cry from last year’s 4.36 yards per attempt. I was really hoping it would happen to Marshall Faulk, instead.

ESPN starts Madden NFL 12 hype machine

So, my prediction was wrong, and Peyton Hillis is now contractually obligated to get his legs broken this year. The NFL lockout is a distant memory and the new NFL-NFLPA collective bargaining agreement is in place for the next ten years of coincidental injuries or production drop-offs related to being on a game’s cover.

ESPN is your place to go for early reveals at some team and player ratings. Two teams are being released every day with a majority of the AFC already posted. Thanks to the lockout and the abbreviated free agency period, you’re going to need a roster update on day one.

Obligatory Madden NFL 11 Post: Cleveland Browns Edition

That's fear in his eyes.

It’s that time of year again. The last days of summer means many things: back-to-school clothes shopping, desperate attempts to hook up with a vacationing summer girl, and another glorified roster update to a mostly uncontested NFL gaming license in Madden NFL 11.

I haven’t actually bought a Madden game since Madden ’96. You’ll have to excuse me. I’m bitter. I am a Cleveland Browns fan. Madden doesn’t have a lot to offer me this side of Turducken. That said, I’m buying it this year. It’s my way of saying, “Thank you for last year’s ‘Madden Curse‘ on Troy Polamalu.”
