    I wonder what would happen if they put Joey Harrington on the cover. Would he start playing well?

    No its thier choice. Pretty much all of them except it tho becuase its a huge honor.

    yea well Peyton Manning will certainly be on the madden cover in 07. I thought he was gonna be on it this year but mcnabb and the eagles were the "it" team over the past 2 years so EA sports couldnt overlook that. Peyton better savor the flavor this year cuz if the curse is any indication he wont be playing too long next year.
    he can't because of his contract with another game that they can no longer produce. it a couple of years or whenever the contract gets voided i expect him to be on it.

    Re: Madden Curse?

    Manning wont likely be on the cover because he covered the other NFL game in recent years ... Also, the players do have the right to deny the use of their likeness at any time, but it can cause rifs with the union ... I think that it is quite possible that Shaun Alexander will be on the cover next season, or Ladanian Tomlinson ... and either one will break the curse ...

    I have to say I think L. Tomlinson will be on the cover next year and if its not him it will be P. Manning or C. Palmer.

    2 things about getting the covers. SI Jinx and Madden Curse.

    First there is no CURSE! It's a combnation of 2 things.

    1. It's a failure to efficiently metabolize heightened expectations.
    aka (Choking)

    2. An athlete usually is performing at a very high level and has no were to go but down.

    Last I think the reason Peyton has not been on the cover is because he was under contract with another game maker. I think he had a Microsoft Football game. But I'm curious why Tom Brady has not made the cover yet.
