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.

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.
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.
Welcome to another installment of “This Week in iOS,” your weekly installment of all the things I’m too lazy to write about.
This week, there’s a hidden drinking game. See if you can find it…
About an hour ago, Madden NFL 12 showed up in the App Store for $6.99. Suck on that, people who waited in line for your fancy-schmancy console versions with your outdated “control pads” and time-killing “Game Modes.”
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.
