    Re: Don't Do It Adrian!!!!!

    A sophmore slump and Madden Jinx... tempting the fates a little ehh!!
    ;D











    Bunch on non-sense if you ask me.. I say he is the most electric playing in the league right now and should take the chance for the free press. The royalties don't hurt either I am sure.

    Actually he sounds pretty smart.
    Yeah he never really struck me as dumb. You also have to keep in mind he is from Texas so he will have a bit of a south drawl. But I always thought he conducted himself very well, he is only 22 you know.

    Int'l AD Anthem...

    I'm tellin you!! AD Don't do-it!!
    reconsider!! Read Some litera-ture on the subject...
    You sure?? Freak'it!!
    You know we got your back like chiroprac - tic
    If that Maden Cover do you dirty
    we'll wipe the game out as in detergent
    Now hurry hurry, go on to the altar
    I know you aint a pimp but pimp remember what I taught ya
    Get that Check AD, Get that Check
    Aye, Get that check AD, Get that Check
    Man, Ur agent is smaut, AD, Ur agent is smaut..NOW
    Play your part
    Play your part"


    Sorry, this reminded me of that UGK song.. intl Players anthem...

    I personally, am semi-supersticious.. i think it has something to do with everything being circular..kinda like karma what goes around comes around.. and patterns, and history repeating itself.. yada yada yada...

    I personally don't want him to do it... Look at all the guys that were on it and didn't recover from it..

    Eddie George
    Donovan mcNabb
    Culpepper
    Marshall Faulk
    Michael Vick
    Ray Lewis.. albeit he recovered
    Shaun Alexander

    In total, the 10 cover players since 1999 had a total of 39 Pro Bowl appearances prior to their Madden cover appearances, compared with just 4 Pro Bowl appearances afterward.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madden_curse

    i'm sorry but that's just too much of a coincidence for him to do it!!!

    Plus, you know every year they get some new and upcoming stud to do the cover not a proven veteran..

    So i expect that either AP, Pat Willis, Marshawn Lynch and/or Dwayne Bowe...

    Vince young did ok, no injuries, his stats were just as good as 06, or at least similar.
    Of course guys are going to be better before the cover than after in general, before the cover they are all superstars at the top of the NFL, there is no where but down to go for most of them. Read the Wikipedia page posted above and you will see that many of the guys had good years following the cover, just not the MVP years that had the previous year(Eddie George, Marshall Faulk, Ray Lewis(147tackles))
    I really don't understand how any one can think that having your picture on a video game is going to change your ability to play football, just silly.

    I'm with you man

    I don't understand why people buy into this

    Donovan has been injury prone since his cover.. Not just the next year

    Lewis had an injury.. Oh well

    George and Faulk were just old

    And Vick well his cleat just got stuck.. I dont think madden caused it

    Re: Don't Do It Adrian!!!!!

    ey.. maybe not... but there's clearly something to the jinx/curse/whatever... so i personally wouldn't do it... with that said.. its on him.. i figure better safe than sorry...

    I mean, if he does get on the cover and gets hurt and or has a subpar year.. then i guarantee you all of us on here are gonna be blown... and be like dang he shouldn't have been on that cover..

    and even VY.. didn't really improve as a player and even he battled injuries this year with a bummy quad... IMHO.. it's just not worth the risk at tempting fate/or going against said curse.. just leave it alone and let someone else tempt the hands of fate...

    it's just like saying i don't believe in curses/ghosts or voodoo dolls or wigi boards...
    maybe not.. and maybe it wont' do anything.. but i'm not necessarily gonna try it or mess with it and have it come back to haunt me...

    Just leave it be.. IMO
